Good Morning

If this weather continues I will soon have webbed feet. Now and again we get a five minute break, but really only a few minutes. After the snow comes the rain. At least the snow is pretty to look at, the rain just has dismal clouds everywhere. Either way you look at it, I am home bound and am not going anywhere. It seems to be getting a little warmer so perhaps Spring is thinking of arriving.

At least I have snowdrops in the garden which shows that something is happening somewhere.

And of course the birds are always here pecking at the goodies. I notice they also have their feeding times. They arrive early in the morning, have a feed and disappear until around midday when they are back for more. I do not see them afterwards for a few hours, but mid afternoon they return for the final feed. I am only getting sparrows and tits at the moment. I hear the magpies and crows but no longer see them.

My excitement today will be a delivery of two packs of cola and a bag of potatoes this afternoon which was a quick in between order as I forgot to put them on the big order. Mr. Swiss excitement was phoning the chemist and organising some meds which my No. 1 son will pick up for him this afternoon. I used to go somewhere daily to get the shopping, but since leading my isolated online life I remain at home during the day. The advantage is that I no longer have to bother about the weather conditions. I have not used my electric wheelchair for almost two months, so I hope it is still working. Mr. Swiss and I were discussing that when the better weather arrives we will again embark on excursions in our separate scooters together again. This time with a difference as I will have more time for pleasant journeys as my shopping expeditions will be no longer – thanks to online ordering. We will be able to do it more often.

I will be making a bread again today. I have enough frozen in my freezer, but fresh is no problem to bake and tastes better.

I am still waiting to be called for my vaccination, but there is a slow roll out in Switzerland for appointments, so I have to be patient.

That is all that is happening in my little world at the moment so I will now move on to deal with life and its chores. Hope you have a good week and perhaps not so wet and dismal as mine is at the moment.

  1. Good morning … nice photo of your snowdrops coming up already … in the spring I think we will get some of those and plant them for next year … our daffodils are up about 7 cm and have little buds on them. Hopefully the snow and ice storm we are having yesterday …. today .. .and tomorrow … will not damage them … after that it should warm up and the snow and ice should melt on Wed and Thursday … we hope … so take care … have a great day … feed the birdies … and bake your wonderful bread. SLP …

    • I also saw some daffodil stalks in the garden, so it has begun at last. I have really been looking forward to leaving the winter behind me this year. The Spring flowers survive almost everything. They are used to waiting for Winter to leave before they can start their work. I really think our Winter is now gradually going. Today I think I baked my best bread of all. It is now cooling down for the evening meal.
