So nice here today.
It’s summer warm here today, that is Scandinavian summer warm and not that awful heat You so often have on the American continent 🙂 20C (68F). The day has mostly been cloudy so far but now the clouds finally blow away and the sun heats up the air even more. We’re having a fairly strong wind as well now so I can have the kitchen door open without getting in too many mosquitoes.
We’ve just come home after a short walk to the bog and it seems that the mosquito spray works fine against moose flies too. Instead of hiding in my hair as they usually do they now tried to hide on my sweater. So much easier to see them and kill them. I killed some crawling around on the dogs too so I think this was the first time in a while that we came home without a single one of those nasty critters.
The hunting leader said yesterday that they had built a wind shelter out in the forest somewhere but that they today would put up a fourth wall so they could sit inside on windy days. They would also build a fire-place so one could make coffee and grill hotdogs there. He said that I can use it as I please since they mostly only use it after the hunting day is over. I couldn’t find it today though, I had put on a sweater and it was way too warm and I just wanted to get home to take a shower and cool down 🙂 Well, I have plenty of time to find it and it won’t stay this wonderful for too long I’m afraid.
They say we’ll get even better weather tomorrow so perhaps I should mow the lawn for the last time this year. The grass isn’t especially high right now but this warm weather will keep it growing and it is so much easier to keep it poop clean if it is shorter. I’ve done my chores for the day though, vacuuming the floors but there was no need for scrubbing them this time thankfully 🙂 Tomorrow’s laundry day and then perhaps mowing day too.
It’s time for making a pot of tea and something to eat. No need for a fire in the stove since it has been so warm and they say the night will be too. It has been warmer at nights now these last days than it was the entire summer 🙂
Have a great day!
