Good Morning

Have been fiddling with some morning photos, but now I am here. The sun has returned and we are in for a nice Summer day after a week of rain and storm. It has also warmed up a bit. I even had to go from a sleeveless t-shirt to one with short sleeves yesterday. In the evening I even wore a warm cardigan, but now Summer has returned at least for today. What the week-end will bring I have no idea.

I had two visitors whilst having breakfast this morning. I had to leave my food to give them their daily treats. First of all I had to deal with this visitor.

Five minutes later this one appeared. Note the similar begging eyes. They really know how to charm you. They have now moved on, probably to the next neighbour.

My second apple tree seems to be developing quite well.It has never had so many apples. I am quite proud of this as I planted it from an apple pip when I was in the office 12 years ago having my morning apple break. Now and again it had an apple, but they usually were not so good. This year the tree is bursting with apples. I do not know how they will develop and will only see the result in autumn. At the moment they are still quite green, but I believe they are a red apple when finished ripening.

I have the intention of venturing to the local super market this afternoon, perhaps even further. I do not really have to go anywhere, but will take advantage of the sunny day. I will be getting my usual Friday delivery of groceries from the supermarket. Since Mr. Swiss no longer eats so much (golden oldie problem?) I have decided to cook what I like to eat. Luckily No. 1 son likes it as well usually. He just avoids mushrooms, broccoli and brussel sprouts. He is also not so keen on salad, at least the green leaved kind. I discovered that my supermarket also has aubergine, which I very much like, the “finger kind”.

You can see them on the top right corner. I prefer these to the normal sized aubergine. I can slice them and fry them quckly as a vegetable and I prefer cooking them to the larger rounder variety. I have decided that I want to concentrate more on what I like to eat and not what the others prefer.

Last week I spotted a crow in the garden. He was very quick and flew off, but I manage to schoot a photo. I have heard them often, but since Summer – and Spring – arrived I have not seen them. This one put in an appearance, probably taking a walk to see if there was anything interesting in food supplies. Our stores stopped selling bird food some months ago and it will be October probably before they again arrive in the shops.

I am now off to begin the day’s work, although no stress. Everything is under control. Mr. Swiss decided he needed a new DVD player. The other one was showing signs of old age, and they have made some progress in their development. However new appliances also have their problems. Yesterday he managed to put the television out of order for an hour and it really looked like that it would no longer function without help from a tradesman. Through luck he found the TV again. I am quite good at technical stuff but with DVD and Video I have no idea and also no interest.

Now time to go, have a good day everyone, the week-end is just around the corner.

  1. Good morning … great photos … we also like the thin finger like eggplants … at the Asian grocery they are considered to be “Chinese” … don’t know if that is accurate or not … but it is … what it is … take care and have a great day .. .SLP ….

  2. We had a new cat appear in our garage this morning–a ginger cat that I have seen before, but is very skittish. My two outdoor cats are not keen on this new one, but now that he knows I keep food in the garage, I don’t think he will be skittish too much longer. This could be a problem.
    The pink roses in your last photo are beautiful. Those are your climbers?

    • Looks like you will have to make an extra room in the Garage to avoid problems. You could of course adopt the ginger cat to void problems. I just read that skittich cats need more love and attention.
      That is my climbing rose, although sometimes it climbs in places I do not want it to climb.

  3. Garry doesn’t eat very much either. For that matter, neither do I. Owen is on a diet because he was getting a bit huge. It’s amazing how FAST men lose weight compared to women. If he just sticks with it, he’ll be a normal weight in a few weeks.

    We’ve been getting nightly thunderstorms and another one is brewing right now. My phone is flashing with the weather and Alexa is announcing it all over the house — and I can hear thunder rumbling in the distance. Well, maybe not so far away because it sound closer now than it did a few minutes ago.

    The good news is that we actually have some green in the lawn. Even some of it is actually GRASS! The rain is making a difference. It has been hot, but it’s summer and it gets hot. it’s normal hot as opposed to super-heated. With the rain, it’s just amazing how GREEN everything is!

    • Marcel has lost a lot of weight. His Polster has now completely disappeared. It seems to be one of his aging symptoms. I seem to remain with no great changes in shape. Marcel eats little compared to how he used to but I eat as always. Perhaps no longer so many second helpings and No. 1 son just eats until there is nothing left. I never have food remains. My son has no weight problems, I think due to his manual work.
      We are having regular rainy days, mainly in the Morning. It is now 2 in the morning and I can hear the sound of continuous rain outside. When I wake in the night I often have a look at my iPad on my bedside table which is what I am doing at the moment. After a time I can get back to sleep with no problem.
      We have had a few storms as accompaniment to the rain. I am glad when it stops for a few minutes during the day and brightens up and can go to town in between
