We had so much snow a couple of days ago that I though it would be here to stay for a week at least. However, yesterday it rained from morning to evening and through the night, the result being that the snow has almost disappeared. We are now left with some strong winds, although that is not so bad. I watch it all from the window indoors where it is nice and warm.
I kept myself busy baking yet another bread yesterday. I still had some wholewheat flour and decided to use it This is the bread before it went for the final baking process in the oven-
And this is the final product, although half was already eaten with the coldcuts in the evening. I now have a break from bread making until next week as I do not need so much during the week-end and I usually buy a platt bread to bake up for the week-end. My next bread baking session will be on Monday.
I am now getting daily visits from the blackbird. They first of all sit in the trees watching a waiting before they pounce.
More and more are arriving daily. This photo shows three male birds with their colourful breaks. The females are not so colourful.
There was also a tit flying around. He eventually discovered some treats. Every bird has its own habits and the tits like to sit in the trees and fly down to the bird house or choose the hanging treats.
Of course the robin put in an appearance again He likes to eat the seeds that fall on the porch when I am sorting them. He has it all to himself and I also get a good photo close up.
I will be getting my delivery today for the week-end food, which will keep us fed until Monday. I just received the confirmation and everything will be delivered. I have already prepared the next order which I will have delivered on Tuesday. I discovered that Monday is not such a good day for deliveries. They do not always have everything as their supplies may not have arrived in time.
It seems there is yet another new vaccine available for covid, from Britain which is even better and covers more various types of the virus. At the moment there seem to be vaccines everywhere, although many, like myself and Mr. Swiss, are still waiting for our jab. When this pandemic is over I am sure that life will never be the same again for us all. Home deliveries of food, and home office might become a routine. We will still be washing our hands more often. We have perhaps seen that life is not so comfortable. and have hopefully learned something from it all. Not everything goes without saying. Our annual jabs for flu will be accompanied by the annual Covid jab.
And I am now off to my normal morning routine with a little bit of cleaning. If the weather stays rain free I might go places, but I have a feeling that it will be a day of monsoons. Look after yourselves, keep safe and make the most of it. It will soon be the week-end although I realise that some are working over the week-end for the benefit of us all.
This little bird also arrived yesterday. I think it is a chaffinch, too special for a common sparrow.
