Not perfect, but the rain has stopped and we might be getting a little sun during the day. I am hoping to escape this afternoon for a trip to the stores in town. Nothing urgent, but there are cigarettes to be organised for Mr. Swiss and I have a few frozen items to get that I cannot order online. My cleaning lady has already arrived and is busy in the kitchen. This is the one day in the week where I have my daily cleaning routine already behind me and can now relax and dither around on the computer.
Yesterday I was sitting in the kitchen and suddenly noticed the flutter of wings and the jay arrived. This time he did not eat the food on the ground, but decided to see what the bird house was offering. He is certainly a size bigger than the tits and sparrows, but managed to balance quite well. Of course he had it all for himself as the other birds decided he was a bird to avoid.
I managed to catch one of the tits in flight. It is always action time when it is feeding time.
As long as there is a place to perch, everyone is happy.
I decided to cook something a little different for yesterday’s lunch: one of our large sausages from the French part of Switzerland (a saucisson) with lentils and carrots. I also added a dash of white wine according to the recipe and in a hour it was cooked. It was very tasty, although Mr. Swiss found that it was OK, but not something I should cook every week.
Yesterday was a holiday in our Kanton in Switzerland. I thought it was completely Swiss, but it was only in the catholic Kantons. Although we would be Swiss Reform Church, according to Mr. Swiss family (I am not anything) we still get the holiday. Today everything back to normal. I am not keen on those holidays in between, they mix up my daily routine. I am already planning Christmas (not that I celebrate it with all the trimmings, just some good food), but my days of stress shopping are over. When you have a chest freezer, all problems are solved.
And now to move on. My cleaning lady has finished the kitchen so I can now start cooking. I always have a bad conscience when she cleans it so well and I made a mess afterwards with the cooking. Have a good day, or sleep well and take it easy. If you are bored you can always switch on the computer and blog it all. In the meanwhile the sun has arrived, so it can only get better.
