My first iris had opened, although it is still quite shy and is only showing the tip of its beard. I am sure there will be more to see tomorrow.FOTD 26th May 2021: Iris
I have breakfast with a few thousand people daily, although I do not see them, but they see me through the computer. Breakfast would not be the same without WordPress at the side. Of course my main interest is preparing something to eat to begin the day: bread, butter and jam is enough to cover my needs and a cup of tea to wash it down (without milk or sugar). I also have my Vitamin D drops to take in the last drops of tea. I take my tablet for my diabetes before I begin to eat. Note the camera is on the table ready for a photo from the outside world and my iPad.
And of course the computer is on the table. That is when I write my Good Morning greetings to the WordPress followers that might or might be waiting for it. I took this picture on 14th May 2020, so things do not change. Only on Tuesday I take the day off as my routine is not the same. The cleaning lady is here and I have other things to do.RDP Wednesday: Breakfast
i was shining by absence yesterday, but Tuesday is always difficult to have time for the computer in the morning.I have the cleaning lady here and have less time early in the morning for composition. Tuesday afternoon I like to get into town when possible. I compose an online order for the supermarket and see what the have in special offers before I complete the order. Luckily the weather was more or less OK with no rain, but it was very windy although the sun was out. We have really been having a bad Spring this year and I do not remember it being so wet and windy for years. Today is not very much different. If it was not for the wind it could be quite warm in the sun.
The fountains were playing in the park around the loal museum. This is quite an original. If you look closely you see that the water is spouting out of a boot suspended at the top. Eventually I parked my scooter next to one of the stores and unsaddled my walker, entering the store. I had to refill on my cooking wine. I like to have two large liter bottles of white and red in my storage in the cellar for cooking purposes and I had now used one each of them. It is not excellent connoisseur wine, but medium qualit. I suppose it is drinkable but I like to add it to meat dishes when cooking. Afterwards I moved on to the next supermarket where I get the groceries, although I did not have to get a lot. I was missing on basil leaves for my tomato salad in the evening and a few frozen items which I cannot have delivered.
I noticed that the wild life is awakening in the garden and captured this spider with the telephone camera taking a walk across the roof of the insect hotel. They are not dangerous spiders and mainly stay outside although now and again one might wander inside, but they usually leave again with some friendly persuasion from me.
I am still organising my life indoors. It is really amazing what you collect and do not need. I have a complete closet of clothes in the cellar which I have not even looked at for a few years, but some are really in too good a condition to just throw away. My cleaning lady to the rescue. She lives in one of the larger villages and they have containers for clothing. She volunteered to take my unwanted garments and deposit them there for me. I can pack them in plastic bags and she would take them with her now and again. With time I will be rid of it all and I am glad. She is a great help and very practical. Her book will be published in Autumn about her life story and I am looking forward to reading it. I also have four unwanted chairs in the cellar which are waiting for our special general collection of bulky goods in Autumn. If you put them outside they will be collected, although often you see private people touring around with trucks collecting the deposited goods themselves which they can perhaps use.
And now time to move one. I have nothing special happening today. Will probably bake a bread at some time and find something to organise somewhere. Life is boring when you have nothing to do. Take care everyone, and let us hope that some more covid virus are slowly disappearing.
I leave you with some blue skies hovering over our Jura mountains and hope that it stays and eventually the clouds disappear.
