Good Morning

Although cloudy it could be yet another pre Summer day in our area. There is no rain, it is warm and so no problems. Today is a holiday in our area for Corpus Christi so it is also quite silent, no traffic to be heard on the nearby country road. No. 1 son will be at home today and tomorrow, giving him a nice long week-end of four days. The only action I will have today is a bit of housework, cooking and some home organisation.

My No. 1 son at last got his appointments for his Covid jabs. The first one will be mid June, and the second mid July. We are now noticing the effect that the vaccinations are having in our country. From over 2,000 new cases of Covid in our country daily we are at the moment down to about 900 which is quite an achievement over a population of eight million. I hope this disease will eventually disappear, although some traces always remain. There is talk of an annual booster injection once a year, but that is no great problem. If you have a flue jab, that also has to be renewed annually.

I had a visitor this morning. This little feline belongs to yet another neighbour. She often paid a visitk but now just passes through on her way to another secret cat destination. This morning I was taking a few photos in the garden and she suddenly appeared on the camera.

I had just sprayed the garden and she was having a aniff at the leaves.

The garden is looking good and daily there are more flowers opening their buds. This allium has now produced all the flower stalks.

I am still working on clearing our cellar hobby room. I now have a few customers for various unwanted items and also contacted the salvation army yesterday as they have a second hand shop in our area and are glad for any furniture items that they can resell. We are a spoilt society really and when you get older you realise how much you collect on the way which is not necessary.

I will probably be backing a bread some time today. I usually make the dough in the morning and bake it in time for the evening meal.

And now to move on with my general household chores and perhaps a little garden work. Have a good day everyone.

  1. Does this little one get along with Roschti? Isn’t it amazing how much ‘stuff’ we collect? My husband, keeper of all things, has even got into the ‘cleaning out’ act, and is quite pleased with himself. Thank goodness for secondhand shops, because a lot of items are still good, but I just don’t need/want them anymore.

  2. I’m hoping they make one annual jab that double up for flu and COVID. I have a doctor appointment next week, but Garry is STILL not allowed in. It’s because too many people claim to be vaccinated, but aren’t and we are considered fragile by dint of age (Garry is 79) and me (heart surgery and implanted valves).

    I don’t think this will ever completely disappear, but if we are very lucky it will become another version of the flu. That’s how we GOT the flu. It was the 1918 flu pandemic and morphed into a less deadly disease,. I’m hoping the same thing happens with COVID-19.

    • I was going to have my first flu jab this year and then Covid arrived so I didn’t bother. I count myself and Mr. Swiss very lucky to have been able to avoid Covid. It is decreasing considerably in Switzerland and my 52 year old son will be getting his jabs soon.
      I am still convinced the origin of this pandemic were germs that escaped from an experimental station somewhere in China, Wuhan, although the Chinese deny it.
