Could have felt like summer.
This could have been a really nice day if the sun could show itself a bit more. As soon as the sunbeams finds a way through the clouds it feels like summer still is around. It feels like a slightly chilly autumn morning when they don’t. No sounds can be heard, not even any cows can be heard so we could be totally alone in the world right now without knowing it. It was very different early this morning though.
Thousands of cranes could be heard out on the bog and by the little lake out there and in between geese did what they could to be heard too. I’m pretty use I could have seen plenty of them if I had worn my rubber boots, it is very wet in the grass now and I didn’t want to get wet feet so we never walked out far enough to see any. If my memory serves me right I think my rubber boots are leaking so my feet would most likely be wet anyway 🙂 Besides, the fog laid thick out there so I would most likely just have seen shadows of the cranes which most likely would have given me great photos 🙂
I was a bit surprised by seeing another human being out walking on the fields this morning, I’m normally alone any time of the day but never see anyone early in the morning. I was even more surprised to see another one out walking. It was my neighbor and he told me that the hunting season for Roe deer bucks started today. I do hope that one-eyed Rune will make it this season too, I would miss him if he didn’t turn up this winter.
I had hoped I would be able to mow the lawn today, the grass is getting a bit too long but it never dries up. We’ve had rain the entire week and we’ll get more today. It would just be a mess in the lawn mower if I tried to do anything now and when (if )it it does dry up it’ll take forever to mow just because it will be so long. By the way, do You know that one of the best ways to grow vegetables (or anything really) in pots is to grow it in pure sand and every time one mows the lawn place a 10cm (4 inches) thick layer of grass over the sand? The grass will not only keep the water from evaporate from the pot, it will also fertilize the plants every time one water it.
It’s time to enjoy this last sunshine before the rain starts, the clouds are thick and dark grey by the horizon now. I think it will be perfect to take a nap when the raining starts. Perhaps I should make a pot of tea too and enjoy a cup on the kitchen stairs while I can.
Have a great day!
