I was looking to take a photo of a tree full of birds waiting to pounce, but the birds pounced just as I was ready to take the photo and disappeared. And then Mr. Swiss strolled into the kitchen for a cup of coffee, and it was finished with live photos. I decided to take the photo of an Autumn tree opposite my front garden. At least it stays where it is and the leaves are still sitting tight.
I was off to town again yesterday for a few items. The first thing I see when approaching our town of Solothurn is the cathedral. I was quite happy with my shopping trip yesterday as I had very little to get: just a bit of meat and veg, I no longer use my delivery service so much for bringing the goods home. I can manage quite well with my scooter basket and also have plenty of room on the scooter platform. I usually had a midday sleep and afterwards went shopping, but this was too late for home delivery from he organisation of the goods I bought afterwards. I tried to go earlier which would fit their programme, postponing my sleep until when I returned home, but after a while I realised this does not work so well for me. I was exhausted after my visit to the store. Now I have a different system, going daily to the stores. I do not have to bring so much home and I go out every afternoon somewhere in any case, so it makes no big difference. I can now have my after lunch sleep again, and I am glad. Having MS does tend to tire you out more, and all I need was a midday break after cooking and preparing dinner. Just a sleep for an hour does quite nicely.
Our town of Solothurn is really showing itself from its best side at the moment with the Autumn decorations on the trees. It is good to get out and enjoy the fresh air, even if most of us are wearing our masks. Life is certainly something different now. I would have never thought that something like this pandemic could happen. It gets more and more like a science fiction novel.
Mr. Trump is still entertaining everyone with his tantrums. I read something new every day (of course all fake news). Somewhere I saw that he is intending to barricade himself in the white house, refusing to leave. If I was Biden I would have the whole house fumigated in any case before I would move it. It must be full of virus remains and it would definitely disgust me to take over a bedroom after Trump.
This afternoon I will be off to the local store. I have made my shopping plans up to Saturday, which will carry me through with food until Monday afternoon. Being a golden oldie now my life seems to revolve on what to cook and eat combined with baking a cake now and again.
This morning I had an alternative excitement. It is fresh linen day again on the beds, so I spent the first half hour removing the linen. I will now let them air out for a while and then I can get down to the work of re-covering them and cleaning under the beds, although there is no really anything to clean, just a quick go over with the Dyson to remove any unseen dust. What an exciting life I lead.
May your day be a good one and enjoy it as much as possible. I am hoping for just a little sunshine this afternoon, it looks like the sky is clearing a little and I even saw something blue peeping through.
