Good Morning

This was not exactly sunrise, but a couple of hours later. It was a dull morning but I was not in a hurry as it is cleaning lady day, and I am usually later with a Good Morning. Now the sun is here and everything bathed in sunlight. The weather report said something about snow in the lowlands on Friday, but I have done my best to ignore it, perhaps it might not happen. It is cooler, but not Winter cold and I am making the most of it. Yesterday was supposed to be a rain free day, but even the meteorologists make mistakes, and so we had a drizzle now and again. However, I am now routined in my scooter rides and it no longer bothers me so much.

It was a bit dull when I entered the outskirts of town yesterday, but at least there were cloud formations. I think I am slowly becoming an expert on weather situations.

It is beginning to look like Christmas in town and yesterday the electricians were busy hanging the lights.

They were everywhere with their chair lifts to get up high enough. They are attached to the small trucks. I wonder how they did it before they existed: probably with ladders. Even our cathedral was witnessing the work in the background.

It was a short journey yesterday and really had only a few things to get, as I am off again this afternoon in the local store. I now go quite regularly, and I distribute my needs during the week. If I have a lot more to buy, I just do an online bulk buy and have it delivered. I am becoming a master of logistics. I do not even have it brought home to me by the young men of our collectors organisation, it is not longer necessary. I can bring it home myself, although my subscription is valid until next year in April. They were having problems with delivery because I did my shopping in the second half of the afternoon. I tried to do it after lunch, but then I had problems as I could not have my after lunch sleep. Now everything works perfectly. I go out every day for an hour in any case, even if I have no shopping. I need my excursion in the fresh air and seeing something different.

I noticed someone had been feeding the pigeons on my journey through town. There was an article in the newspaper that the town has employed a guy responsible for the bird life in town. He examines their nesting places in the varius towers and attics of buildings and makes sure that they remain pigeon and martin friendly. I love seeing them in own, and I must say they always look well fed.

The side streets is town were a little deserted. It used to be much more populated during the day, but so many factors have changed it all. First of all the old established shops were closing, people preferred visiting the larger stores outside town, Then of course we have Mr. Corona which made sure that we all stayed at home more and the result is this typical side street where it used to be more crowded and now empty.

And now I should move on, my cleaning angel has just left and I have a little cooking to do. Have a good day everyone, may the sun shine on you.

    • I wish it did have snow skis, but they would be no good to me as I cannot ski. My problem is more going through snow qualms with my walker, I have never had to do it before.


  2. Good afternoon, there was an outstanding sunrise today. it now overcast and cool right now. I can’t find anything as the different caregivers put their stamp on items. My caregiver just arrived and is now going to fix my breakfast and then a shower. Have a stress free for the rest of the day and stay safe.

    • I am always having things that disappear, but usually my fault because I forget where I put them. Thank goodness Mr. Swiss can always call me from his phone if I forget where mine is.

  3. Corona is really eating this country alive. I spent all day on the phone trying to arrange doctor appointments, trying to find an affordable dentist. I got through the day, but I really think my country has gone completely mad.

    • Many countries are suffering, but it has really hit the American nation very hard and there seems to be no way out. I am thinking of you in these desperate times.


  4. We used boom trucks for tree work when I did my internship in 1988. Not many arborists did so back then, and not so many do so now. Yet, I sort of wonder how some work was done before they were invented. I suppose that trees were cut down before they got big enough to need such specialized work.

    • I did not know the expression of boom truck, but they are those fitted with cranes. I have never seen them used for arborists here, more in the building trade, but we do not have so much tree work
