It should be the last time for the season.
I need new clothespins, the ones I had are long gone and today the wind is so strong that my laundry has the tendency to try to follow the wind even if it hangs beneath a roof on my patio. It’s rather warm too so I am a bit surprised it hasn’t dried yet. This is the last day with this warm weather and already tomorrow the temperature will drop considerable they say, not even close to winter temperatures but still much colder than it is now.
I’ve mowed the lawn today too, the grass was dry and fine where the sun had reached it and soggy where the shadow reigned, which is the biggest part of my garden. So I had to stop every few meters/ yards to dig out the green mess that clogged the mower. I used a long stick because I had missed some of the dogs poops even though I had taken two tours around the garden just to be sure I wouldn’t miss any. I’m pretty sure this must have been the last time I mowed the lawn this season.
Sune loves this weather, he is sleeping on the ground just outside the kitchen door. Every now and again he lifts his head to take a sniff or two if some special smell passes by. Nova and he ran around the garden like crazy earlier and those leafs that still hang despite the wind flew away when they crashed straight in to the bushes 🙂 Nova however only sleeps on the kitchen stairs when the sun reaches it so she’s upstairs sleeping in my bed and the old boys are sleeping in the living room. They are all waiting for their food, they know it won’t take long now before it is dinner time.
There might not be a car to borrow on Tuesday when my car is getting fixed, I don’t mind though 🙂 Even if it will be chilly it won’t rain and a day of from work is never wrong, especially since I have compensation hours to use so I won’t lose any money. To be honest, I wouldn’t have mind anyway, we have no holidays until christmas here in Sweden so we do need a day of anyway until then.
I think I might start a fire in the stove even though it is warm today, the strong wind does chill out my cottage and as long as the sun rays hit my cottage it still stays warm here but as soon as the sun goes down behind the forest is a totally different thing.
It’s time to make a pot of tea and something to eat both for me and all the animals.
Have a great day!
