I was probably more noticed by my absence the last two days, but I just needed a break from the daily routine. I was at home or visiting my husband in his golden oldie refuge across the road from where the photo is, but my energy was at its limit. We have had temperatures of 35-38°C and that was just too much to get any action together. We are never satisfied, either it is too hot or too cold, but you cannot have everything.
I was in town but it was also quite empty. A few brave people were sitting at some roadside cafés. The only reason I was in town was to accompany Mr. Swiss to get a new iPhone. He had an iPhone 8, but was really on its last bytes or whatever they had so I accompanied him to the telephone shop to get a new one. He is no longer used to such devices and naturally forgot to bring his old phone to transfer the disc to the new phone. I will now take his new phone and old to the store tomorrow morning and get it all organised for him. He is really overwhelmed with these new improved iPhones.
We both needed our scooters with the attachment for the walker. I use mine almost every day, but for Mr. Swiss and his 83 years it is a burden and complicated. I help him when I can, but it is better to let me do it all.
Eventually I left Mr. Swiss to go back to his golden oldie home and I continued to get a few items in the grocery store. I filled up on some ice cream for home.
Eventually I arrived home and was glad to see that Mr.Swiss managed his home journey on his scooter. He is really somewhat frail now. This evening we had a heavy rain shower. First of all there was some thunder and then about a quarter of an hour of heavy rain. I was glad as I did not have to water the garden and it has cooled down slightly. I think the temperatures are going down slightly and I will not be sorry,. And that is all I can manage this evening. Do not worry of I disappear now and again, but I too am feeling my 75 years and need to take it easy now and again.
I leave you with a photo of one of our main squares which mainly has local government office buildings. This is also very much deserted, no-one seems to like this summer heat wave.
