I would just pack my car and leave, with no hesitation.
What a day we’re having so far, sunny, just enough warm with a nice breeze blowing away the thick fog we had all night and parts of the early morning. I wouldn’t have mind if the fog had stayed but since we’re closing in on autumn it’s best to get as many sunny days as possible and charge the batteries before it gets dark and dreary again. More and more cranes and geese are flying southwards in the typical v.formation but plenty will stay for as long as they can and a few will actually stay here all winter long if it is mild enough. They will get plenty to eat so the risk of freezing to death is small.
The morning was totally quiet, well I could hear one bird singing but just for a few minutes and then it quieted down too. Not even I could be heard, all dog behaved exemplary today so no need for shouting after them to not go too far or to come back. The fog laid thick and the sun rising gave it fantastic colors in the red spectrum. I love mornings like this and perhaps it’s a good thing they don’t happen too often so one would become used to them 🙂
I was thinking of taking a nap when we came home from our walk but instead I thought why not do the laundry? Normally that’s a Sunday chore but I did it today since I actually thought it was a good idea, that doesn’t happen too often 🙂 So I thought I would take that nap after the laundry but then I thought since I’m already up and going and doing things why not vacuum the floors? So I did that too. I realised that the floors wouldn’t be much nicer if I didn’t scrub them too so I did that as well. I think I might have reached the point when I can take that nap but now I don’t feel like it 🙂
WordPress is acting strange, for some time now I’ve had problems getting in to my blog. I sort of get half way there and then it slows down so much that I never get the entire site. I also have problems getting in to other WP blogs, it just takes so long before anything happens. It does go faster if I just go to WordPress.com and then go the back way to my blog, very odd. Also, when I comment in other blogs I can’t use this blogs name, WordPress says I don’t own that blog which is ridiculous since WP itself says that it’s in that name I will place comments in other blogs??!! and like in all other big sites it’s impossible to find an e-mail address so one can write and ask them why this is happening 🙂 Yes there is support forums but really, this must be something wrong with WP and nothing other bloggers can solve for me!
The biggest forest fire ever recorded in Sweden is going on here right now. So far one person has died and another one is badly injured and he’s gone from really bad to even worse. For some reason they decided they should save timber from burning up and went straight in to the forest. This wasn’t even their own personal timber but timber owned by a company, they were both employees and I can’t for my life understand how they thought it was worth the risk of loosing their lives for that? Besides forest fires are tricky and one never knows how fast they move or where. People were upset that the authorities hadn’t blocked the roads but really, people should be able to use their own brains at least some I think.
Aeroplanes from both France and Italy water bombs the fire and several helicopters too but the fire is out of control anyway. It’s hot, dry and very windy where the fire is so if rain won’t come and help soon this might be a bigger disaster than it already is. They are evacuating towns and naturally thieves go there and empty homes, one can just hope they’ll get caught in the fires themselves because they aren’t worth a better ending in my opinion. Naturally some people refuse to evacuate their homes, what do they think they will be able to do if the fire comes? Spit on it and make it stop?? I love my little home but if it would start to burn here I wouldn’t stay for a second, my insurance would give me a new home in the end anyway. I would just toss in my dogs, cats, cameras and at least a laptop in my car and drive away with no hesitation at all 🙂
It’s time for a pot of tea and perhaps some digestives with some blue cheese. My laundry is drying up fast now in the increasing wind, it almost feels like we’re going to get a thunderstorm here soon.
Have a great day!
