They are changing colors now.
I would say that no matter what the meteorological explanation on when autumn starts says it has started here, the leafs are starting to change colors. I saw this morning how many of them are turning yellow. A bit early to be honest but I’m not sure if trees cares about that 🙂 I guess it can be because of the stress from the long draught and then this rather cold and rainy weather after that, it sure feels like autumn anyway.
So I’ve started to prepare just in case that first frost will be early too by placing lots of plants beneath a roof on my patio. The first frost usually never reach in far there the first visits. The Brazilian nicotiana with no name flowers now but they usually only smell warm evenings and since we’ve had around 10C (50F) already around 6pm here I haven’t had any chance to smell it 🙂 It will get a bit warmer and sunnier later next week they say so perhaps I’ll get a chance then.
They show a new channel for free on tv for a while now and it is the channel that show how Cesar Millan helps people with their dogs when things don’t work as they should. To be honest, some of those dog owners are pure idiots! Yesterday for instance they showed a couple that at first had one dog, for a reason I didn’t hear they got another one and that’s when the problems started. The first dog got aggressive and protective. So what does this couple do? Do they solve the problem? No they get yet another dog to even things out as they said?! 🙂 How on earth did they think that would solve anything? Thankfully this was tiny dogs, slightly bigger than Chihuahuas but still they were afraid of this aggressive one.
I’ve heard that Cesar Millan can be a bit too tough on dogs but from the little I’ve seen he hasn’t. On the contrary, he has been determined and consistent and always very calm. Mostly he seems to work with light touches and sounds, when it comes to dogs. He’s a bit different with the humans and is more a therapist to them than anything else. This morning they showed a dog that was afraid of the beach and ocean and how four people tried to force it to stay by pushing and carrying the poor dog, how on earth did they think that would help 🙂 🙂 🙂 If You were afraid of dark rooms and somebody forced You in to one, would You be less afraid of it after that? 🙂 🙂 🙂 It took him a day to make the dog feel safe on the beach close to the ocean.
Unfortunately they send these program when I’m at work during weekdays so I’m hoping they send this channel for free for at least a few weeks so I can watch it during the weekends early in the mornings. I do like to watch how he solves the problems the owners create or worsen when they get their dog/ dogs because to be honest most of those problems are created by humans that simply put their own fears in to the dogs heads.
It’s raining again after a few hours with sunshine, I’ve done the laundry and I have only the dinner making left to do today. This week it will be reindeer shaving stew, lots of mushrooms in it and some onions but no other vegetables because I forgot to buy any 🙂 I can always add them after work tomorrow. But for now I’ll be happy for a cup of tea.
Have a great day!
