As I do not get out very much at the moment being Winter and unfriendly I have to make do with the flowers I have. My orchids are always good for a surprise and this one produced its flowers a few days ago. There are still some buds to come.FOTD 24th November 2021: Orchid
Every day there are more and more sparrows in my garden. Perhaps they are thinking about moving in and taking over.RDP Wednesday: Conspiracy
And another dull morning with the cloud cover, it can really get quite depressing. We have even had a weather report that it might even snow in the next couple of days.
At the moment I am not here so much. As you become a golden oldie life catches up with you. Two days ago Mr. Swiss became hospitalised. He had been constantly coughing lately and eventually I called for the ambulance. He had fever and is now in hospital being treated for a bilateral pneumonia. They are giving him antibiotics and despite the problems, he is Ok and fully conscious. He had not been eating very well lately and the main thing now is to get rest and treatment for his illness, He is also on oxygen to help him breathe better – those little tubes they hang onto your nose. As I have my own disability problems with my MS I cannot get to the hospital and visit him myself, but thanks to Face time on our phones we can speak and see each other. No. 2 son is working in his office, which is local, this week and called past to bring some clothes for Mr. Swiss and visited him in hospital. He is in our new hospital on the top floor (9th level) and has his own room. Otherwise I just do my daily routine at home and hope for the best.
I have naturally not been taking so many photos lately, but these two just turned up outside for a bite to eat, as it ordered.
They really arrived at the right moment.
The smaller birds are always here
and let us not forget the jay who is now a very regular customer, but he seems to be a peaceful sort of bird and does not bother the others.
Today will be another day at home in the usual routine. Some times it does seem strange that my partner is not here, missing his voice and even if he does just sit a read most of the day, he is always there. Hope you are all having a good day. I might not be around so much at the moment, just taking things as they come.
