Cows invaded our village

There are times I forget that I live in a tiny Swiss village.  Life becomes normal and routine.  

And, then I look out my bedroom window and see cows grazing in a field.

After we picked up my four year old from the bus stop, we sat on a bench under our favorite tree (shown above) to watch the cows.  

The children wanted to know why the cows have bones that stick out really, really far on their backs.  I hadn’t noticed that before and I must agree with the children that it is rather odd looking.  

The children giggled each time a cow would wrap their long tongue around some grass pulling it out of the ground and into their mouth.  There was much giggling considering that cows don’t do much of anything except eat!

We sat quite a long time watching the cows live their life while we lived ours.

In Switzerland.

(Edit:  Cows are normally not in this field.  Farmers move their cows around to different pastures during the year and to the barns in winter.  I have only seen cows in this particular field once before and it was last year around October.)

    Expatraveler,
    I wouldn’t mind your new location even without cows! :)

    Anne,
    Thank you. I am going to miss seeing cows in the mountains when they go inside for the winter.
