FOWC with Fandango: Death

Death accompanies me daily, at least in Summer. Yes, I admit I am a murderer. Flies have no chance with me. Armed with a fly swatter, I have been known to kill at least ten of them in one day without any gullty feelings. They are born to be swatted. However, I would never intentionally kill any other insect, just by accident perhaps, some of them are so small that you do not notice when its last view of life is the sole of your shoe.

RDP Sunday: Mop

Bucket List

Of course I have a mop, and a collection of mop heads. Perhaps it does not look so moppy but I love my system. This is my little room – no windows – but just for my cleaning equipment including the vacuum cleaner and various cleaning helps. The mop is in the corner leaning on the wall at the front and its spare mop heads are laying on the floor. That is the beauty of my system. I have so many mop cloths I just use a new clean one daily. As I have very few carpets, stone tiles on the floor or wood, the mop is my main cleaning object.

Good Evening

Just another uninteresting day in my little village in Switzerland. I did clear the last drawer this morning and now it is almost boring that I have nothing more to organise. I did not have a lot of cooking for lunch so there was absolutely no stress.

I again spent the afternoon with Mr. Swiss which is becoming a routine for me. He is making good progress so who knows and we do miss each other.

Luckily there is always something interesting for a photo in his home such as this koi fish that swam past in the pond. They have many fish, but this seems to be the only koi that they have. We like to sit outside in the afternoon on our comfortable chairs in the sun and watch the world go by. Today we had the pavilion to ourselves. Just now and again someone walked passed.

The mallard duck pair were also there, sitting side by side. I very rarely see them together.

The female usually sits on her own

and the male just does his own thing. It is one of those breeds where the male is the good looker and the female more plain.

I also saw this wasp that seemed to be interested in a wooden support which it was holding on to.

Otherwise not a lot of action. I read further in my book on my electronic device and Mr. Swiss was sitting next to me, both of us enjoying the warmth of the sun. We began the afternoon in the dining room where we enjoyed a piece of cake and something to drink.

And that is all I have to say for today. At home I am composing my grocery list for delivery, but I seem to have so much at home I do not need a lot.

I am now off, so enjoy the rest of the week-end everyone.
