I wonder if tonight won’t be the first night with frost. I can feel it in the air, a kind of raw, nasty feeling that screams COLD COLD COLD! Just after I wrote that I checked the predictions and they too say frost tonight, not desperate cold though, just enough to kill all the dahlias I have out there. I will most likely have to scrape the car windows tomorrow morning too I’m afraid. The good thing however is that lots of moose flies will die and hopefully some mosquitoes too but they are a tough crowd that needs more than a light frost to give up.
The rain was so heavy last night that the sound made it hard to fall asleep 🙂 I guess it might have been thunder in that sound too because it sure looked and sounded like thunder showers. It kept on raining until way in to today and only just before I drove homewards the sun showed itself. It never got ant warmer than 10C (50F) so the first thing I did after coming home after our walk was to start a fire in the stove. Even the fire seemed to think it was a bit too cold to use any energy to actually do something 🙂 But now finally it burns nicely in there and I hope the heat soon will have spread to the entire cottage.
The first part of my own birthday gift has arrived and it was heavy, I wonder how much the mailman fought with that parcel to get it down in to my mailbox and still have room for the rest of the mail 🙂 Some letters were squeezed at the bottom but it turned out to be junk mail so I didn’t care. Now I’m just waiting for that second part to arrive so I can tell You what it is 🙂 From what I understand is the second part even heavier and it will not fit in my mailbox, that’s for sure 🙂 I have serious thoughts of buying myself my christmas present already now too but if I do I can’t buy a single thing I want for the rest of the year :-). It’s much the same as the first thing I bought as my present but “more modern” and even heavier 🙂 But it might be something else similar to the second part instead.
It is time for a pot of tea and something to eat. It’s already beginning to get dark outside and I can feel winter breathing down my neck.
Have a great day!
