Svea is kind of nice.
The storm (now named Svea) won’t be as strong as they predicted, to be honest it is quite nice to walk out there in the winds. I would say it’s borderline to be called storm at all even in the stronger gusts. I do love a good storm but this is better. We’ll even have sunshine later today and it’s around 6C (42,8F) and it might even get warmer 🙂 This time of year is actually when we have more storms than any other time so we might be seeing more of this still. 2014 was the warmest year recorded since 1934 but that doesn’t mean this year will be warm too I’m afraid 🙂 It seems to take much longer for me to be able to have a mango tree in my garden than I had hoped 🙂
Hector doesn’t like the new food I’ve bought, he simply refuses to eat anything where I’ve mixed some in. So until I can buy the ordinary brand I’ll have to give him what’s left of that and the others will have the new food. He really doesn’t like change that dog and perhaps it isn’t that strange since he is a bit autistic. I don’t change the routines without upsetting him 🙂 Every time they’re getting their food I start with saying: What do You say Hector, are You hungry? otherwise he won’t come to the kitchen at all. After that he walks to the stairs and waits for me to scratch him a bit and have a little talk. He will stand there until I do so, so I better remember it 🙂 🙂
This will be a do nothing day, I did what I needed to do yesterday and I can’t think of anything special to do today. I won’t drive anywhere even if the wind isn’t as bad as they predicted, it’s bad enough to rather stay at home. They only show garbage on tv except for a couple of interesting programs on the Knowledge channel. I have lots of dvd’s I haven’t seen so I might watch a few of those or perhaps a good one I’ve already seen. I have noo good books to read but I might go online to order one or two. I bought seeds yesterday to Metasequoia glyptostroboides, Red dawn redwood. A Chinese species that is a bit hardier than the American sequoia’s. It drops its needles in autumn and becomes beautiful yellowish-red before they drop.
It is time for a pot of tea and then a short nap I think, I do love vacation time 🙂
Have a great day!
