Good Morning

Yesterday was such a dreary day again, so where is the sun. At least no rain or snow was predicted, but you cannot always rely on the weather forecast. As I drove off on my scooter to the store in town yesterday there were drips of rain and when I arrived in town 20 minutes later it was even mixed with a little snow. I was glad to arrive at the store eventually. The snow was coming and going, but as it was sleet, mixed with rain, it did not lay on the ground. This time I drove through town to get to the store. I usually take the circular path around the middle of town, but it does cut off about five minutes taking the direct route. I really had to do town shopping yesterday as I needed to organise some meat supplies for the week-end and to freeze a few items for over the holidays. Being restricted in movement I have to plan ahead as you never know when the snow will hit us and then you are really stranded at home.

When I left the store it was still wet, but not too bad and I was glad to get home eventually, although the rain got stronger as I approached my village. I noticed there were not so many people in town.

Now I have dealt with my shopping chores until next week on Monday or Tuesday. the meat is in the freezer and Friday morning I will be getting a delivery from the store with the remainder. Mr. Swiss again needs medicine from the pharmacy, but he has called them to reserve it all and my No. 1 son will pick it up for him this afternoon. I am glad that he also now does that and it no longer relies on me. I really did not want to go into town today. I will probably make a short trip to the local supermarket along the road: not really necessary but as there is no stress I can just have a look to see if there is anything I might need. At least there is no rain or snow predicted for today.

This morning I was again busy stripping the beds and preparing for fresh linen which got me out of bed a little earlier. It really looks like a woman’s work is never done. Now to continue with bed making and all the other household chores.

Keep safe, and be careful, alhough easier said then done. You cannot help thinking when will this corona curse be over and a thing that belongs in the history books.

  1. Good morning !!! Every day is a beautiful day … just some are just more cloudy and cold than others. Just ask the birds .. they are still chirping … and the kitties are mewing …trying to get your attention so you won’t forget their morning treat … let’s all keep moving forward … with a stiff upper lip (Winston Churchill was into that … right? or was it Queen Victoria …? hm-m-m-m … ) … SLP …

  2. Good afternoon, snow is in the forecast starting tomorrow. The sun is shining and it is below freezing. ‘Golden odies’ days are often dull. The days seem to blend into each other. I will start watering my armyillis later today when I water my orchids. Good luck on your shot journey today and stay safe.

  3. Supposedly it will be nicer tomorrow and for a few days, so our frozen snow will finally melt. This is the dark time of the year. It’s dark when we get up, dark before dinner. And cold, too. Meanwhile, I think my country has gone insane.

  4. The hawthorn tree looks more like a hawthorn in the first picture, except that the fruit is dark blue or black. I know it only as red, but there are many cultivars that I have never seen. It is an uncommon tree here.
