That little dot, if you click on the picture, is a paraglider. Paragliding is on the list of things to do!
And the sky was so blue, and the snow so white, and THIS is my Switzerland. It does not get any better.
I have been busy again. Up at 6 to take Marge to work again. At the restaurant this morning, then baking biscuits, and carrot cakes. This necessitated a bit of ingenuity. No custard powder to make the biscuits, so I experimented and substituted cornflour and vanilla essence. Well...that is what I think I put in. It did not seem to make much difference. However, all is not lost! I am dipping the biscuits (cookies) in chocolate, and that will add to the taste. Chocolate. In Switzerland. Heaven.
I walked to the supermarket twice today because I left my shopping list at home, but when I saw the sky and the mountains, it was a pleasure to look upwards, and marvel at the unbelievably awesome hand of God. I tried to use the camera to capture what I see. But believe me when I say it is so much better in real life. You can stand in the snow and turn 360 degrees and you will lose your breath at the beauty which towers over you, reaching to the heavens. You will.
So, it was a bit of an effort to go back to grating carrots. But I managed. So we will have some cakes for Christmas, if I can keep my family from devouring them tonight. And YES, Diana, David, Andrew and Ann, I will be making a cinnamon cake too. Tomorrow. Enough is enough for now, and I need to go and melt the chocolate for the biscuits.
I may even wrap some presents....
