Last day before going back to work again so I started to go back in to old habits too. The laundry is done and the dinner for next week is done as well. It’ll be something like pulled pork (it’s ham though :-) ) and this time I could use some of my own grown vegetables, like red onions and small squash’s :-) I could have taken a few broccoli buds too but I still have very few of them and I want my carrots to grow some more before I start using them.
We’ll have a semi sunny day here today but a bit chilly perhaps, the warm weather will arrive tomorrow (is anyone surprised :-) :-) ) It’ll only last for two days though but it does feel like the weather is mocking me :-) I really dislike starting up the workplace after our vacations because there’s always something that goes wrong. Last summer someone had shut down a few things that isn’t supposed to be shut down, ever. So it took almost half a day to get things running again :-) This year I’m not even sure how many of us that is supposed to come back after the vacation, some have still one week left before they have to start working.
But I still have today and today I’ll go to the annual plant swapping day. I have fewer plants that usual with me because so much that I’ve sown are late because of the rather chilly weather we’ve had this July. The strange thing is that I this year will get lots more ripe tomatoes than last year even if the days are cooler and less sunny. I guess our relatively warm nights might have helped me with that. I’m pretty sure I won’t get any pumpkins though, none of the four plants I have haven’t even started to flower yet.
Nova is sleeping in the sunshine on the kitchen stairs and sounds as if she was suffering bad :-) She sounds like that when she’s enjoying life but it did scare me the first time I heard it because I couldn’t figure out what was wrong :-) :-) Old Erna had just the exact same sound, otherwise all my dogs have been quiet if they enjoyed a moment in the sun or what ever it was they liked at the moment. Cats are easier that way, the purring sort of shows pretty clear what they feel :-) (ok, I know they can do that when they are really afraid too but if they are it’s easy to see as well :-) ).
I could mow the lawn today but it won’t run away if I don’t :-) if the predictions are right the grass will have dried up rather well until tomorrow afternoon and perhaps even better until the day after and it is always easier to mow dry grass. The last days raining is still caught in the grass and the morning dew just made it even wetter. I better wait another day I think :-)
It is time for a pot of tea and after that a walk I think. The plant swapping day won’t start until later this afternoon.
