I hope it’s edible.
It’s a rather pleasant day here in the village at the outskirts of the world. Semi sunny and around 25C (77F). The wind is blowing steadily and that keep most of the flies away. Yes my friends, the flies have returned but these are bigger, fewer but just as annoying 🙂 So no big clouds around our heads thankfully but still I can’t say I like these better than the smaller forest flies 🙂 They say this is a wasp year but I don’t think I’ve seen a wasp in months here, in other places pest control companies work more than usual to kill wasp nests. I haven’t even seen the hornets for quite some time. I wonder why the wasps aren’t here too? Not that I miss them especially much to be honest but they do eat lots of flies (yes I am a bit obsessed by those nasty insects 🙂 ).
I wasn’t planning on doing much today but since the wind is blowing and it isn’t especially hot I thought it best to mow the lawn before the real heat comes back again. I can’t say I think a newly mowed lawn look especially nice but I do think it looks nice after a few days when it has started to grow again. I think it’s the evenness I don’t like, it does look artificial like nothing in nature would. my closest neighbor is just the opposite considering how often he mows his lawn. Then we have the “newest” neighbor, furthest down on the road. He barely mow his lawn at all. I don’t mind that but every time I pass that property bI start thinking of tics 🙂 they love a lawn like that.
I’ve a bread fermenting by the kitchen window right now, the sun is helping keeping it warm enough. I normally don’t bake bread during summer but I just didn’t feel like buying one of those spongy breads they sell in the supermarket when I was there yesterday and I couldn’t find a parking spot when I passed a bakery. I tossed in what ever I could find in it today 🙂 I had some cheese, a strong one, that would start ti mold if I didn’t do anything with it and I didn’t use water but hot milk with butter instead, I had some old butter that needed to be used as well. Then I tossed in some rosemary, oregano and ginger too. It smells nice so I do hope it tastes nice too 🙂
I’ve just worked som with it and now it stands by the kitchen window for the second time. So today is my last day of vacation and the real world hits me once again on Monday. Well, I can’t complain about the weather this year either. It’s rare that we get two good vacations (weather wise) in a row. Normally June, July and August are the months with most precipitation in the year here and this morning they showed that this area only have gotten around 50% of what we usually get when it comes to rain. It has also been around 4-6 degrees centigrade warmer than usual too. I fear next year will be nasty cold and rainy all the time 🙂 🙂 🙂
All the dogs, except for Sune, are asleep in the cottage. I think Sune takes a round in the garden to see that nothing unusual is happening. Even if he is the one that perhaps loves to greet people he meets the most he still guards the garden very much. I guess that’s the Bernese Mountain dog in him, the cocker spaniel part loves swimming and watching birds 🙂
It’s time to make a pot of tea and then just wait until I can make that first sandwich from the newly baked bread. I do hope it will taste good because I don’t think I have flour enough to bake another one 🙂
Have a great day!
