Good Morning

It does not look too bad, but there are high cold winds and a trace of rain in the air. There is a storm on its way according to the weather warnings and it even has a name. It is called “Klaus” in our country. The wind is blowing throught the apartment shaking the blind stripes and doing a whistle now and again through the doors. Needless to say I will not be going anywhere today.

Yesterday we had a small drama with our computers. Mr. Swiss and I both have Microsoft Outlook on our computers and it was not working. We were both not receiving our mails. I switched to the computer programme and could get my mails over Internet. It was quite mysterious as there were no reports of the mails being down in our area. we contacted our computer guru but he also could not get them to work and said it would better to wait until the next day, which we did. Strange but true, everything is working perfectly again. Another problem solved.

I was busy in the kitchen again yesterday with my bread baking. It is now becoming a regular event. If I am staying at home during the day I can begin to make the dough during the morning. If I plan on an afternoon journey, I start it when I rise in the morning. I now have a perfect plan for my home bakery. This time I baked a brown bread. I will probably bake another one today and that will be enough until next week.

Otherwise the birds were gathering as normal outside.

I wonder what they will do when I stop feeding them. Perhaps they might begin to demonstrate and organise some group flights against my Windows. I remember the Alfred Hitchcock film about the birds.

I caught a glimpse of my friend Mr. Robin yesterday. He was sitting in the tree. He just tured up again in front of my window. Is he still looking for a mate?

I must be getting old as I had yet another early night yesterday. I was feeling quite tired and disappeared into my bed already at 10.00 p.m. and slept quite soundly. Someone mentioned yesterday, quite rightly, that I am no longer contributing so much to various blogging sites. I must be getting old, but I just do not have the energy so much to write in the evening. I prefer to relax with a book of even the TV if they bring anything worth watching. My brain no longer finds so many ideas, although now and again I might appear somewhere. I enjoy my Morning blog as I am fresh from hugging the bed and probably have more energy. I must say I do miss my colleagues a little.

Have a good day everyone and may it be a good one, just make the most of it.

    • The apartment smells like a bakers sometimes. I now have a bread in the oven for this evening. It is absolutely not warm here, a very high wind and raining at the moment.


  3. We have Microsoft Outlook, also, and this morning when I logged in, I had a message about an update. My husband did, too. That is strange because the updates are always on a Tuesday and here it is Thursday….. Not sure what is going on, but we are up and running, so….. Your little robin looks so sweet in the tree. Surely he will find a mate–he is way too handsome not to.
    I am with you about posting–I post only once a day, in the morning. After that I am onto other things. I do enjoy your Good Morning’s so am glad you enjoy writing them. Take care, Pat.

    • I got nothing about an update, but Mr. Swiss just told me he had one. Outlook is now functioning OK on my computer, but Mr. Swiss cannot send any mails, he just receives them. My robin was hopping around today, making the most of it. I have really set back with posting now, and just do one a day. I have another life to lead, like baking bread, watching the TV and reading. I take a few photos during the day and like to upload them.

  4. Good Morning!
    As I mentioned before, ‘the Birds’ was filmed in Bodega Bay north of here. That made it even scarier. Instead of being in some fictional place, it was a place that I was familiar with, and the news reports (in the movie) mentioned other familiar places, including Santa Cruz, which is right down the road from here! Alfred Hitchcock lived near the farm. A friend now owns his old Ford Ranchero.

    • Sounds you live in a dangerous place. I hope the birds do not bother you too much. It is so interesting having such well known people living near you. We can only hope to see them in the films.

      • When I was a tyke, I was afraid of seagulls anyway. The movie certainly didn’t help.
        Some of the well known people live in Southern California because that is where they work in the entertainment industry. Some of them are Brent’s clients. I have no idea how Alfred Hitchcock ended up here, so far from Southern California. I suppose he was not really an ‘actor’ anyway, so could live anywhere he wanted. Perhaps he just liked the region. I suspect that is how Clint Eastwood got here. I never asked.
