RDP Wednesday: Kelp

I had no idea what kelp was – an animal, a new discovery in the science world, or something to eat. OK, I asked my golden oldie husband and he knew that it was sea weed. Surprising as we have no sea in Switzerland, so we do not have kelp. I explored further and found this rather kelpy pond in Mr. Swiss golden oldie home. No long kelp strings, but plenty of green slime. Probably baby kelp.

Street Musicians 22.09 (4)

My days of concert visits are over. Even my Mr. Swiss can no longer play his drums at an evening jazz session. You have to be fit and need energy to play the drums and not 75 and 83 years old. However, if the chance arrises to see our street musicians then I have happy. This band was playing on a Saturday Afternoon at our market place, and they were good.

RDP Wednesday: Surreal

There it was hanging on my garden waste garbage can as it it had found a new home. It seemed to have a problem with organising its eight legs although I must admit after finding five I gave up searching for the other three. They were probably curled up. I must say it was an acrobat in his aracinida shape and I decided to leave it to its own surreality. It did not look very friendly either.

RDP Wednesday: Achievement

Since Mr. Swiss left for his golden oldie retreat I discovered there are many things I had to learn to do on my own. He was always there to ask and avise and now I have to do it myself. Thank goodness for my cleaning lady Lucia. She has lived on her own for many years and tells me she had to learn to do it herself. However, Lucia is not me and I must say I am glad for her advice and help.

Up to now I have learnt how to do a tax declaration on my own, and I was so proud when it was accepted. I also fixed the hose for my plant in the garden, although that was no very successful. After giving myself an unwanted shower with the hose, I have realised that I will have to purchse a new one. Luckily at the moment they have a special offer.

Now my printer is telling me it is thirsty and needs new ink. After a search on Internet, with some help from Lucia, I discovered the refills I need and ordered them. They are not cheap, but I ordered a complete selection to have enough for the next time my printer tells me it is hungry. I actually only need the grey colour. Now the next step is to insert it in the printer machine. – no problem. I will try, otherwise Lucia is here next Tuesday to assist.

Just one achievement after the other at the moment – I hope. Of course you learn by your mistakes I heard.
