Sometime alike, sometimes very different.
If this had been spring I most likely would say that it’s so nice outdoors so I’ll have the kitchen door open all evening. Now I say it’s a bit chilly outdoors so I think I’ll close the door as soon as Sune and Nova comes in after playing in the garden. It feels a bit like autumn but I doubt that autumn has arrived already, it is a bit too early even for us here in the north. I will most likely say that after the first week in September when the first night frost have been here.
All windows are now closed again and I have even turned on the radiator in the bathroom. I put on a fleece sweater as soon as I get up in the morning and am fast on getting that pot of hot tea ready as soon as I’m down in the kitchen. The nights aren’t any more chilly, it’s the days that are a bit colder instead. So I really don’t notice much change when we’re out walking before I get to work. Well the sun goes up much later so it is hard to get a sunrise photo now.
I could see thunder clouds when we were out walking and the few flies that still are around were insane and wouldn’t leave us alone for a second. But the clouds flew away so I guess it will stay calm for the rest of the evening. They say we might get it tomorrow though. The one that lives will see as we say over here.
I came to think of words that can be the same (with perhaps a bit different spelling) or very different when it comers to English and swedish. Come for instance is kom in Swedish. High is hög, cocoa is cacao, coffee is kaffe, school is skola and beaver is bäver. Rather like wouldn’t You say. I had lots of fun thinking about to translate some words precisely as we say them to English and had rather fun for a while. You all know about troll spindle being dragonfly, Butterfly is called Fjäril in Swedish and if I would make it a ( two) word(s) in English it could be butte il (I’ve checked, there are words like that in English 🙂 🙂 🙂 ).
The auto correct is screaming here at the moment 🙂 So I thought I would write a few words and let You guess what I mean 🙂 A buttock and east butter goose, a raw animal, a clean, a road clean and a very easy one a wine vine.
Have a great day!
