Good Morning

Yesterday began in a similar way, but the sun eventually appeared, so I am hoping it will today.We still have our -4°C temperatures and the water outside in my watering can and drinking bowl for the birds is frozen solid in the morning.At least we have no snow, although that is also predicted for Wednesday when the temperatures should then be around 4-5° C during the day. At least a little warmer, but I am getting used to the comfortable stay-at-home life and have no intention of going anywhere this week. My golden oldie days are now spent letting the others doing the running around. I will be getting yet another delivery today to fix me for the week. I have even ordered 3 breads, one for today fresh and the other two will be frozen for the rest of the week. My No. 1 son is back to work today and I really do not want to pressure him too much with buying stuff. He does enough for me as it is,

In the meanwhile I am still trying to get an appointment for a Covid vaccination which seems to be a things of impossibility. Since three weeks the telephone line is overloaded and you are advised to “try again later”, although later is a large term. I am fed up with seeing photos in the newspaper of those happy people who are some of the first to be chosen, although all are people in the older age groups or with an underlying medical condition. I am also one of those, and have a written recommendation from my neurologist, which would e necessary in my case, but what is the point when you cannot get through for an appointment. In Switzerland we cannot make an appointment with our local doctor direct as the vaccine has to be stored in special deep freeze temperatures and so it has all been centralised.

In the meanwhile back to the birds with their flying antics. This sparrow had just completed a take off manoever.

And I am not so sure what this one was doing, perhaps just a little wing practice.

And now I am doing a little wing practice in my apartment. A woman’s work is never done and housework continues, although routine. It is now a week since I ventured into the great outdoors. I do not even have cabin fever. I am getting used to my new life of isolation.

Keep safe everyone and have a good week.

    • I need luck to get an appoointment. Since 8.00 this morning until now (4.30 pm) I have been trying for an appointment and the line is occupied, so no chance.


    • We have the vaccine and the priority was given to senior home residents and over 75 year olds. I am 74, but have a letter from my specialist that I should be vaccinated. There is no point of trying when the telephone lines are completely occupied with people wanted to be vaccinated.


  1. Your wing practice photos are wonderful. The capture of the bird in the tree is a beauty! Our vaccine situation is the same here in Florida. There are now newspaper articles on how our governor got things with the vaccine so out of whack. I really don’t care how he got them that way, I just want them fixed so we can get the vaccine in some cohesive fashion.

  2. II am again running late. I had breakfast and this was a flower day One of my orchids has a flower bloom. A first for me. Not much else is happening. The sun is shining brightly but rain or snow for later this week. While I am one is supposed to the viccine, I am not worrying about it. I have so many negative reactions, I can wait. Good luck on your vaccine hunt and stay safe.

    • Congratulations on the orchid. It’s the big talk now here in Europe is getting your vaccine, but they are forgetting the people who are still waiting. We now have a snow warning for the next days. Imam glad I have my shopping already done online
