Good Morning

Does not look so good outside, but I think the mini monsoon is now over and it can only get better. Yesterday began with rain but stopped during the morning. It still looked a bit unsettled when I took to the trail to the store, but remained dry. On the way home it began to drip again, but nothing serious and I more or less arrived home dry.

Of course I took a few photos whilst in town, same places as usual. Here the bus was just preparing to leave. Our busses do not go so far, just to the surrounding villages, but not to ours unless our local train breaks down and they will be a substitute. The post bus goes through our village on its way up the local mountain, Balmberg. That is the area where Mr. Swiss grew up.

The large house on the right was the new house his father built and the house where he grew up is next to it. It is a small village with many surrounding farms.

In town there was not very much happening and not many people. On the left is one of our two post offices, although I do not often visit it: too difficult to get to with my walker because of the steps to mount.

Yesteday my chopping machine arrived. It is quite a monster, but fits nicely on my kitchen top next to my air fryer. I wanted it for milling mainly almonds for my cakes. The packets you buy are milled with the skins on and I like them without, so I buy the almonds skinless and mill them myself. It is also useful for fine cutting of various veg and lots of other tasks to make life a little easier.

Just now there was a ring at the door, and it was only once, so I knew it was not the postman. I got my online delivery of various groceries from the chain store so I was busy shifting it all down to my store room/laundry room which worked quite well as Mr. Swiss stopped hugging the bed in the meanwhile and gave me a hand. There were 6×6 packs of 1,5 liter bottles of Cola and that was a heavy task. My logistic talent again came to my help. I shifted the packs to the lift and the rest was a short journey to the store room and I already had the place for them. Usually son No. 1 helps me, but he was not here and I did not want to wait until the evening.

I now have my two 5 KG bags of bird food and so they will now have something to munch on and now to fill the bird feeder.

Have a good day everyone, take it easy. I am already exhausted with shifting my goods delivery but it is now completed. Now to fill the bird house. See you later, hopefully feeling a little more rested.

What a lovely Autumn path to take into town.

  1. Good morning … wonderful pictures. Yesterday was warm here. We raked leaves and put them in our compost cages we have constructed from heavy gauge wire mesh to keep the critters out. Stil about half the leaves need to fall yet. It is going to be warm and sunny yet this week. So we will have to see. Also repotted yet more of our plants and brought them in to place under the plant lights. All is working fine so far. We will see with global warming how cold it might yet get? Not much I reckon. Last winter it barely snowed. Have a great day. SLP …

    • We did not have very much snow last year and I was glad. This year is my first year without a car so I am hoping that it will not be so snowy or icy. Today is quite dull and cold. I decided to stay at home. It is really not so inviting outside. I will engage No. 1 son to sweep the fallen leaves on the edge of my garden into the meadow opposite. The local maintenance troop will then collect them.


  2. Good afternoon, our skies look very much like yours. The last week was very stressful and I am very hanging on. America is showing its difference to the world this week. You cutting choppers looks interesting mine is small and I don’t know where right now. Stay safe and enjoy the rest of the day.

    • It was such a dull cold day today, I stayed at home with my computer. We ae follwoing the voting in the states with interest.It is really an tight race to victory. I am still getting used to my cutting machine. It is already getting dark here at 5.00 in the evening.


  3. That looks like a tip-top food processor. I have (same color, too) their mixer. I had an older one that Owen updated. Kitchen Aid makes really SUBSTANTIAL stuff and it lasts a long time. I think maybe forever. And your final autumn path makes me hope that one eady, this election wil end. REALLY end. Because we are still counting!

    • I had never heard of kitchen aid, but it looks like a good machine. Now it is a matter of getting used to it. I also hope that your election will soon be decided. Trump is a complete idiot. I hope he gets what is coming to him after it is over. He is mentally unstable.
