Good Evening

I have returned. Yesterday I was missing, but paid a visit to Mr. Swiss on Sunday afternoon and returned via the farm where I found quite a view things to take a photo. The sunset was also quite effective on my way home.

The chickens had returned to the farm and were making the most of what was hidden in the grass. I had not seen then for some time. Now and again they stop laying their eggs, and then they have to retire to make way for some fresh feathers.

Some of them preferred to do their own thing

whilst others preferred to keep out of the sun, a little closer to their daughters which were still enjoying the quiet surround of an egg.

The pony was also grazing in his enclosure

together with a horse

and the geese were not far away. Unfortunately I was not prepared with my camera and only had my mobile phone with me so the fence got in the way of this photo.

It was a wonderful little walk home in the sunny evening and I was surprised to see so much action. Today it was again a day at home as Monday usually is. At last I said goodbye to my tax declaration and my wonderful neighbour dropped it off today at the office where the expert could prepare the document for me. When it is done he will send the finished declaration to me and Mr. Swiss and I can sign it and hand it over to the tax authorities and afterwards we can just pay, and the routine will begin again next year. The next time I will be better prepared for it all (I hope).

Today I eventually finished organising the clothes cupboard from Mr. Swiss. He has so many wonderful leather shoes which have been worn only a couple of times. He has shoe size 42, my sons have 43 and 45 so no-one can wear them. Mr. Swiss, at the age of 82, only needs training shoes, slippers and shower slip-ons. I could wear the Addidas and reeboks etc. as I have size 41, if necessary, but I do not really need them as my walking is done in my scooter or with my walker, so the wonderful shoes are now just sitting in the wardrobe.

And that was my day. Who knows what tomorrow will bring – have a good week everyone. I leave you with a view of the Jura mountains taken from the farm.

  1. My husband also has too many unworn shoes – to the extent that when he came to try a pair a couple of years ago, the soles disintergrated when he walkes in them. Perhaps better to offer them to a charity sooner than later in case the same happens, (These weren’t cheap shoes either, but of course well-out of any guarantee that may have been offered).

    Lovely to see the chickens scratching about outside. All UK outdoor chickens had to go undercover in December due to bird flu. I think they must still be inside as a news report said supermarkets can no longer sell ‘free range’ eggs – presumably as they still aren’t roaming free.

    • We only have free range chickens in Switzerland, everthing else is not allowed. I do not recall that we ever had chicken flu here, at least not so much.
      I do not know what to do with the shoes. They originate from the tie and shirt days when my husband was still working in the office.
