RDP Saturday: Clutter

Clutter is not problem if you can hide it in a drawer or cupboard, but it is when the objects want to show themselves in public that you get the problem I had my orchids outside on the porch during the summer where they nicely behaved, made their flowers and did the things that orchids should do. Now winter in approaching and it is too cold for these delicate plants, so I found a place on the dining room table. It is no great problem and one has already begun to flower again at the front with the white flower. Everything is wonderful. Tomorrow I will have two adults and two children more to lunch – family. I cannot expect them to share their dinner with the orchids so I will have to shift all the plants into the kitchen where I already have three other plants and – yes another orchid. No great problem, when I can eventually put them outside again in Spring.

RDP Saturday: Clutter

Good Morning

I was wondering what sort of photo to show from our dreary misty morning and suddenly our resident Jay appeared from nowhere. He settled on his food supply and after breakfast flew a little further. I think he wanted to see what I was doing. Being a Saturday I decided to enjoy the bed a little longer and now I am at the computer watching the birds.

Yesterday I was off to town in the afternoon for a few supplies. Even our cathedral was hiding behind the mists and if it was not so imposing you would hardly see it.

On the other hand, taking the outside path to town Autumn was showing itself everywhere. Our old fortifications had a carpet of leaves neatly swept to one side, again everything with a misty cover. As you can see there were few people on their way. It was a cold day and I was glad for my gloves and hat.

In the town I noticed that the Christmas trees were appearing slowly, although not yet with their lights. that will come a little later when advent begins at the beginning of December. This is the square with our official local government law courts.

Further in town things were also looking quite picturesque with various green bushes and of course another Christmas tree. In the background is one of our old clock towers. I also heard the sound of a piano tinkling on my way through town.

And there he was with a piano on one of the paths through town. How he managed to shift it there I do not know, but he was playing very well, some nice soothing music. When he saw me he immediately turned and gave me a lovely smile. That certainly brightened up my afternoon a little. It was just what I needed.

I picked up my various groceries and was glad to be on the way home. The cold was creeping into my bones and it was already getting darker as early evening began. I was really glad to arrive home, although my first job was to deal with my purchases. At last I had bought my spare bottles of cooking wine and got some frozen goods I needed.

Just because I do not really celebrate Christmas it does not mean that I do not partake for the sake of others. I saw this two santa claus in the store, from one of the Swiss chocolate makers and decided it would be something for the grandchildren. I found them quite nicely made. They even had a small bell attached to their belt.

And now I should really be moving on. Have a good day everyone and perhaps if you are lucky you might see some sun. Here there is nothing shedding any light anywhere except for a few Christmas decorations in town.
