Good Evening

Yesterday Evening it was quite cloudy but I had illumination from our surroundings. I was not here yesterday, as No. 2 son called past and we had a lot to catch up with as I had not seen or heard from him for more than week. However he is keeping well and the family, although his wife did lose the sense of taste after the Covid attack they all had. It is gradually getting better.

Yesterday I went into town for some groceries and naturally also to have a look.

I was not disappointed and the town is now in the hands of the carnival. This bus had been redesigned with various figures dressed in carnival masks. It was advertising tours of part of the town, but it was not really going anywhere.

They also decided that ABBA should take part in the festivities.

Many of the store windows had been decorated with carnival subjects.

Some were a little scary.

And heads were being collected.

This one was titled as the “Town Corona Prison” but all in good humour. After 2 years of not being able to have a carnival due to Corona they are now making the most of it. Almost all our complete Corona restrictions have now been abandoned, and it was the first time for a couple of years that I could enter the store and do my shopping without wearing a mask. Masks are now only being worn in nursing homes etc, and on public transport. We usually have a town carnival procession, but for that it needs a year of preparation and the relaxation of the laws came too late to organise a procession. However, everything else with masked groups of people were taking place and many restaurants were having their celebrations. Life is gradually normalising.

It was good to see that things were getting back to normal life and musicians were also appearing in town.

I am still busy at home sorting my appartement. I have discovered that Mr. Swiss had become a hoarder. I found documents dating from the nineties. Gradually I am clearing them away, but it is not possible to dispose of everything at once. It will be a gradual task, but I have time. I even had a guy ask me yesterday how much my scooter cost as his elderly father needs one. I told him I had one to sell as Mr. Swiss no longer needs it and he will contact me as he was very interested.

I eventually arrived home and was pleased that No. 2 son arrived which broke up the monotony of the evening. He left in the late evening for his train to the other side of Switzerland having a 2-3 hour journey. However, he had his mobile iPad with him with keyboard and it would not be a boring journey home. He can do some work on the train.

Today I stayed at home for a quiet Saturday with no stress. Since Mr. Swiss is no longer here I have a completely different time table. In the last week I think I only watched TV once for about an hour and I do not even miss it.

I wish everyone a relaxed time where even you are.

  1. Great photos … the images of Carnival are so uplifting. Life is indeed returning to some semblance of normal. Next will come spring with the message of renewal that comes along with the fresh flowers, the new leaves, the stirring of new life. Don’t forget to keep up with your cooking … it is important to keep up with your nutrition to remain fit for those who love you and are depending on you. Take care and have a great day. SLP …

    • Although I am not a follower of carnival, it makes a change for our town, People are more rleaxed. Now that my No. 1 son is working full time I have a different routine. I make a snack for lunch for myself and can at last just make what I enjoy eating without considering the others. I will now cook for the evening meal for my son and I.
