Good Morning

And now I am here after a busy start to the day. The sky was showing itself from the good side with my first photo of the morning, around 8.00 a.m. so it does look like it will be a good day. The sun has already arrived.

I noticed a red glow in the sky yesterday evening so was out with my camera to see what I could capture and it was worth the effort. Now is the time of the year when we get the good sunsets, must be something to do with the Autumn atmosphere. You can even see the moon over the trees.

The cleaning lady has been and gone and she brought me a copy of the book that has been published about her life. I am looking forward to reading it. The book is called “The Mule” and in the German language, although there will be an English edition and I will be checking the proofs before it is printed. Why “The Mule”. It is because growing up in Columbia and from a working class family with a son as a single mother you had to find a way of survival, and her way lead to becoming a drug courier as a young lady. She had quite a turbulent life and it was not easy. She gave me her permission to write about it here, but I first of all have to read the book which she gave me today, so more will follow.

I did not go anywhere yesterday, but still have some photos from my excursion on Sunday. It was really good to get out again. I spent the complete summer only making excursions to town and not exploring the local places. The crops have already been harvested and the land is ready for next year.

The cows were making the most of their last days outside relaxing in the warm sun. They are very rarely outside in Winter here, although there are some areas where they roam in the snow covered fields. I hope to go again some time this week to see what I can find. Today I will be off to town. My reserve supply of wine for cooking needs topping up. I really only use wine in my stews and other cooked meat dishes. I never drank it and even Mr. Swiss days of wine are over. We now just stick to the roses.

I saw these flowering in a garden on my way. They have not yet all disappeared.

But now I will disappear. Dinner is cooking and in half an hour my hungry No. 1 son will be here. My grocery delivey arrived this morning so eveything under control. Keep well and safe and may it be a good day for all.

  1. Those are the most relaxed cows I’ve seen in years. I’ve been a been absent because we’ve been busier than we should be. Everything is happening at the same time. It’s time to figure out what we are doing about Medicare coverage next year. Finishing (finally) paying off the deck, but need to hire the guy to come and clean out the septic system. And the price of oil has jumped. The good news? Our new boiler is very effective and uses less than half the oil the old one used. It’s GREAT! Aren’t we lucky we got the new one when we did.

    Autumn has hit us overnight. We’ve been out taking pictures as much as we can manage, but also shopping for food in different places than usual. Too many doctors to visit, too many appointment to make and then actually keep. It’s feeling like (oh no!) WORK.

    • The cows have been on the night shift during the Summer, but are now again on the fields during the day. Our cows are quite a happy bunch and are happy to be on the fields munching grass. My main work seems to be shopping for groceries if necessasry. I have most delivered – we have a good system and I do not have to pay extra. The food comes from the local large chain of stores, so I know what I am getting and what to order. Glad your new installations are working well.
      Autumn has also arrived here, I think it is one of my favourite seasons especially for taking photos. The doctors cannot do a lot for me.I order three months supply of my MS injections and they have their own fridge. I seem to have my diabetes under control agai, I just have to be carefuly how and when I take my meds. and I have a flu injection to deal with in a couple of weeks, my first one. As I am getting older I decided I should take more care. I still do my daily cleaning at home, but nothing too exhausting and I need it to keep me in action.
