Good Morning

Not so bad this morning, although I was a little early for a photo. It is change of bed linen day today so I already begun to strip my bed earlier than my usual bed leaving time. I have now recovered the duvet and pillow on my bed and the rest will follow later. Mr. Swiss slept through it all, lucky man. At least there is a small orange-red stripe on the horizon so it can only get better.

I was watching the inauguration of President Biden yesterday on the TV, as I think most of us were. What a wonderful ceremony. I even got a little sentimental. It was so well organised.

Yesterday a great tit/chickadee landed in my garden for some goodies. They usually visit the bird house, but this one decided to see if the food choice was something better on the ground level.

Otherwise I was at home for the day. I was thinking of going places, but my scooter needed some new power, so No. 1 son got our needs. I only wanted one portion of yeast for baking bread. One cube gives me two breads of 500 grammes each, which is quite good. If I have time today I will be baking a wholewheat bread which will be something new. I also have to cook lunch, but no big deal. I usually do Spaghetti with meat on Thursday but my online supplier did not send the meat and I had none frozen. However, I have a packet of frozen prawns, so I will be making my spaghetti with them. I wrote to the supplier yesterday and it seems the problem is that I usually take the first slot of the day from 10-11 p.m. and often the new delivery on Monday has not yet arrived from the suppliers. I will now choose an afternoon slot, which actually makes no difference for me. I have also ordered more meat to freeze to have a reserve. I am really becoming the chief logistic expert .

Mr. Swiss and I have both now reserved our appointment for our Covid jabs and we are now waiting to receive a notification of the date and time. I get the statistics of the developments in our Kanton (and complete Switzerland) daily on the computer programme and notice that the cases are falling, although certainly not perfect. From 9,000 daily in complete Switzerland it is now down to about 4,000 daily which is an improvement and in our particular part of our Kanton there were just 4 new cases reported yesterday. In our village there have been no new cases for the past month.

And now I must go further if I want to get all my chores dealt with. Stay safe, will be back later, probably with flour and residue covering my hands and sometimes face from my bread baking. As I was sitting here at the computer I saw that the clouds outside my window were showing a few blue patches. Of course I left my place, went quickly outside and the following photo is the result.
