A few clouds up in the sky, but no problem. Today will be another hot day with a progression of our heat wave weather, but according to he weather experts, it will all be gone next week and we will be back to the normal 20° C days. I must say it is really getting a little hot for me at the moment with 32°C. Yesterday I was on a quest for ice cream but only went to the nearest supermarket along the road. I decided it would be wiser getting the ice creams home for my freezer before they became liquids.I was successful and they are still nicely frozen in my freezer.
I had my usual morning visitor for his second breakfast of treats. Naturally I could not resist the pleading eyes. A few minutes later he returned for more. When he noticed that there was no second helpings he underlined his need with a loud meow, but I remained firm. He disappeared into the garden and probably visits another neighbour to see if there is anything there.
The morning slug also arrived, but he/she was on the way home after a night in the leaves. I think this one actually lives in the bricks surrounding my raised bed.
As said, I visited the store yesterday, but also for another reason. I got my usual online delivery from the supermarket, but two special offers were not delivered, just the normal priced goods and a more expensive quality as apparently the advertised offers were no longer available. The goods come from the largest local supermarket, so I visited a much smaller branch of the store near where I live and yes, they had more than enough of the special offers. I had already complained to the store on their web site and had now received an answer asking more details. I gave them their information (all in German and my written german is not perfect). However I got an answer, quite apologetic that they will be making further investigations. I can be quite annoying where money is concerned and it was a price difference, for me, of more than ten Swiss francs.
The way to the local store is along the main road. There seemed to be quite a lot of traffic but I motor along in ny schooter on the sidewalk. I have to cross the main road where the traffic lights are, but no problem. I just press the button and eventually they change to red. After crossing the road I scooter a little further and eventually turn left after the large building to the supermarket.
Ii is quite a useful store and never has a lot of people as it it more for the locals. There was another guy with his scooter there I noticed. We often meet and greet when we see each other.
The way home had a little less traffic and I managed to complete the whole excursion in just over half an hour.
On the way I travel on a path at the side of the local railway tracks and pass this meadow which had been freshly cut. The used to have horses grazing there, but I have not seen them for some time.
And now to move on to today’s adventures, although there will not be many. I am at home today. Tomorrow No. 2 son and his family will be here for the day. I have not seen them for some time, just online with face time etc. They were also on holiday.
Hope you all have a good week-end – stay safe.
