I should not really be here, but neither should the moon, although the moon cannot change anything. It is still hanging around due to the sun’s reflection. There are also a few wispy clouds to enhance the scene and it looks like another sunny day in our part of the world. I, for my part, should be busy putting new linen on the beds. I had to miss out on my routine the last time due to varioius Mr. Swiss doctor visits having his cataract repaired at the eye doctor, but we now have that behind us and I am still catching up. However I was determined to try to stick to a normal day so here I am with my breakfast sitting at the computer.
I even managed a trip into the garden where late Autumn is moving in. The flowers are still there, but no longer as keen as they were and the blooms are dwindling.
My rudbeckia are now showing a droop in their petals and it will not be long before they disappear completely. It has now been a year since the gardener organised my new garden with the raised beds, and I must say it was worth it. No more bending to remove the dead flowers or to plant something new. I now have everyting under control.
My herbal raised bed has proved to be a success. I have never had such a good show of thyme and savoury. Even my little rosemary tree has grown and expanded a little. Only my sage showed symptoms of sunburn during the year, but I have now replaced it with a new plant. My kalanchoe is still flowering in its pot after three months and needs almost no water.
Yesterday was an afternoon of shopping, but this time my mission was a bit of a failure. I forgot too much, which is not usual with me. The problem was I forgot to write a couple of things in my online list and that is never good. My golden oldie memory needs those reminders. I even forgot to drop an official letter in the box although nothing drastic and I hope I remember today. I even had the letter in my bag, but forgot it completely. The result is that I must go on my way again this afternoon for a few small items, although I like to get out and was not planning on anything important otherwise. The village post office where my store is will be closing down in a month and shifting to the mall with the other stores. I will be glad as for me everything will be in the same place and no more organising things. Just along the road towards our next town there is also construction work going on for a new store, which will be quite a big one. That will be handy for me if I forget anything. It is within the range of my wheelchair and it will be a new experience for me to enter the store and shop in the chair. Others do it, and I am sure it will be no big problem. Of course I could also manage the shopping with my walker for small amounts, but it will be just a little far away to get their on my own steam and I do not like climbing on busses so much with my walker, although it works OK really: just a matter of comfort.
As you can see no big happenings in my neck of the woods, life continues as usual, despite a little golden oldie forgetfulness.
Have a good day everyone, see you later.
My orchid show outside on the porch is still doing well, although I take them in throughout the night when it cools down. I was going to get a foutth orchid yesterday, but they did not have such a good selection. These are now almost three months old and still keeping their flowers. The sprinkled one was the last arrival and still has a few buds to open.
