Good Evening

This photo taken through the living room window tells it all. We have had rain from morning to evening and it was quite windy. Windy enough to blow my window carpet away outside. It was not a pleasant day and needless to say I spent the day at home. It is days like this where you really feel the lonesome feeling when you are alone. However I had a little excitement this morning. We have a cupboard and the top door has been on weak hinges for many years. Now and again Mr. Swiss give it a nail and a hammer as an emergency solution- Today the cupboard door half fell off hanging by a single hinge. Now was enough and I phoned our village carpenter. He came around this afternoon and made a plan for repairs. It is quite a nice cupboard with each door in a different colour, something like a Mondrian painting, with a red door, yellow door and blue and I would really like to keep it. It was not an expensive furniture, probably made in Hong Kong. Tomorrow our village carpenter will return to fix it. At last I do not have to tip toe around the cupboard and can open the door and shut it without being worried that it will fall apart.

I paid a visit to Mr. Swiss yesterday quickly on my way home from town as I suspected that today would not be scooter weather. He was outside in the grounds and I saw that they have now planted some nice Spring flowers.

I could also get a closer look at their chickens outside. They only have these three but seem to be quite happy scratching around.

There are also these three rabbits. I think it is a good idea to have some animals in the home.

And I also discovered this metal sculpture in the garden outside.

Mr. Swiss was sitting in the pavillion where they have a view of the local castle, complete with the chicken run in the grounds.

Today I made myself busy organising the desk drawers. I do not think Mr. Swiss ever did it and a lot of junk had collected. However, now I am happy, the junk has gone and I now have a nice collection of coloured permanent markers, as well as memory sticks, erasers and I even found my wedding ring. I lost it some time ago, rolling along the floor and thinking it was hidden under furniture. It seemed Mr. Swiss had found it and forgot to tell me. The problem is my fingers have swelled so much I can put it over the finger, but have a problem removing it afterwards.

And that was my day. The miserable weather continues tomorrow, so I hope I find something to do. I hope the weather is better where you are, it must be.

  1. Mr. Swiss’ home looks very nice, with lots of enrichments. We have had variable weather in Southern California — it will be 90 (F) degrees today! That will last until the weekend, and then it will drop to 70!

  2. I have rainy, dreary weather today, similar to you. I had to laugh reading about your junk drawer(s)…MY Mr. Swiss likes his junk drawers as well! And what lovely spaces he lives in with beautiful views and animals to study. Hope you are well and able to find a pretty chain for your newly found ring.

  3. Oh, but Mr CH is in a really lovely place, I love a care home with pets – AND that priceless view onto the castle. My, this is splendid! I went to do my shopping today and luckily I took an umbrella. It nearly carried me away when open, so strong was the wind. Not what one would want for spring weather!
