The next best thing to buying the flowers is to take a photo at the local store.FOTD 8th September 2021: Chrysanthemum
It’s that time again when they begin to creep
You are laying in bed and they steal your sleep
Is that spider still there creeping along the wall
Do not fall asleep, in your mouth it might fall
When the morning arrives it lays dead on the floor
What was it that killed it, did it creep through the door
Another night of survival, but who knows what might arrive
A fly swatter at the bedside to help to survive.
I have returned after my one day abscence from the computer yesterday. Actually I did not really depart, but Tuesday Morrning is cleaning lady day and I was busy with this and that and decided to avoid the stress before it begun. I still do not have my new fridge and freezer, but the guy intends to bring it tomorrow. I can manage without as I have my smaller fridge that I can use, but it is inconvenient walking back and forth from one room to the other. On the good side, I have now received my new 300 zoom lens to my camera.
Yesterday afternoon I made an hour’s excursion into town.
The bubble making guy had returned and was filling the main street with his results. One of our saints on the jesuit church chose to look the other way as the bubbles drifted past.
The even drifted as far as the market square.
I had a small quest to fulfil in town and made my way to the mobile telephone store. I like going there. They have young guys that do the assisting in the shop and they have time for a joke and a few pleasant words. We golden oldies appreciate that very much. However, back to business. The protecive panzer glass on my mobile phone had more broken edges and cracks that a plain surface and it was time for a new one. Apparently there is now a newer glass cover – a few francs more than the old ones, but a little bigger, so I decided on that one. I also had a renegade sign that had disappeared from the surface of my phone, although it was still lurking in the background. The nice young guy fixed that also for me. It was just a matter of a click on the icon to renew it again, so I learned something new.
It was a lovely warm day and accordingly the roadside cafés had many visitors. The situation seems to be reverting to normal circumstances, although due to the new wave of Covid infections the hospital beds are filling up again. There still seem to be many people that have not been vaccinated. We had enough opportunity and I just cannot understand why people did not have their jabs. Not only would they be protecting themselves but others as well.
I had a few invoices to pay on my online banking system yesterday and yet again they are making new improvements. I have no idea what it might be called in English, but we know it as QR payments. There is a black and white square on the payment slip which is very digital and you can take a photo when paying and there is no longer a need to fill in the details manually. I decided to try it. After time spent on finding the camera I did it – not bad for a golden oldie. It seems that modern developments are a secret weapon developed to trap the grey haired brigade, but I continue undaunted in my digital understanding.
A short few words to the progress of the second degree burns on my right underarm. At last it is become more respectable and although not yet a super sight, the worst is over and I can show the arm in public again. It no longer hurts so much, just a constant itch as it heals.
I had yet another new visitor this morning as I was preparing to take a seat in the kitchen for my breadfast and computer visit. My first reation was a grasshopper, buit I think it was more a katydid. I decided to let him find his own was out. He seems to have lot a leg in his journey.
Today will be a day at home, no shopping in town and just take it easy. In between I will probably bake a bread. I wish everyone a good day with some good weather, and hope to see you around later.
