Good Morning

We had a nice sunny begimimg to the day but it was only an introduction. The sun disappeared, the clouds arrived and now a few hours later, the sun has arrived again. My cleaning lady was here and has now finished, so everything back to normal. My grocery delivery also arrived so I am set for the week’s food. Lunch is already cooking.

Today I have chickpeas with sliced pork. I did it a bit chinese style, but not genuine, just added soya sauce to the mixture. I really must organise some fresh ginger for such dishes.

And now for the remainder of the morning.

The sparrows have been and gone. Did I see a green finch amongst the sparrows. He appears quite often: always on his own, but it does not seem to bother the other birds. I suppose food speaks all languages.

Of course our jay called in again. I really admire his twists and turns to get the selected seeds.

This afternoon I am off to town for Mr. Swiss cigarettes and to get my flu jab. After potting up my orchid that had been growing on the stem of another orchid I discovered I had no clips to fix the flower stalks so I was busy ordering some from my online orchid store. I really seem to live an online life and stores are becoming superfluous. My supermarket chain where I buy almost everything has now decided to sell alcohol. It was founded many years ago by a guy that was a teetotaler, but today it is a bit old fashioned and they are voted to join in with the sales of alcohol. I myself are almost teetotal, but do like to spice up the cooking with wine, meaning I can now order this online from my store and no longer have to go into town to buy my wine. I never get anything special or expensive, just something to add to the cooking process.

And now I am off, the kitchen is calling. Have a good one and avoid the daily stress where you can.

  1. That green finch is mixing right in with the sparrows–he is very pretty. As is the bird in your last photo. Do you know what kind he is? Birding groups would catch some great photos at your home!
