Trumpet swans have arrived.
It is snowing outside my cottage, the same kind of small flakes that never seems to land anywhere even if it continues to snow for hours. It’s too warm outside at the moment so e´ven if it should actually land somewhere it won’t stay for long. According to the weather predictions it will stay above 0C (32F) all night but I rarely trust those predictions. I won’t go anywhere tomorrow anyway so let it snow if it so wish 🙂
I worked in the neighbor factory today so time passed quickly. The job in itself is no fun but it is something different to do and that usually means time pass by fast. We had our weekly meeting when I came back and after that it was only 40 minutes left until I quit for the day.
Like almost always I passed by the super market to get fire logs and food for the weekend and today I also wanted sowing compost. I only needed a small bag so naturally they only had big 50kg (110 pound) sacks 🙂 Well I might need some later in spring so I bought it. It was a bit tricky to carry that bag and a package with fire logs (10kg, 22 pound) from the car in to the kitchen at the same time 🙂 I’m so glad none of the dogs thought it would be a good time to walk in front of me on my way in 🙂 Last night Orvar almost pushed me down the stairs when he suddenly decided to rise when I tried to pass over him 🙂
I’m in an argument on facebook right now. Some people there think it would be a good idea to deny people health care and even revoke citizenship if they have been down in Syria to fight for IS. I think that is a very stupid idea, only dictatorships have laws like that and if one opens that door just the slightest, voices will be heard who wants to do the same to other people who do things they don’t like. All in good intension of course but the road to hell is filled with good intentions. I say that we should arrest and prosecute them as fast as we can (something they never answer me on what they think about that) but to remove human rights is not the way to go!
People who wants to have laws only existing in dictatorships are no better than the ones they want to punish! Where do we draw the line? Should we do the same to people committing horrid crimes here in Sweden too? If we revoke their citizenship, where should we send them? If we deny them health care are we then better people? For some strange reason they don’t think to think the same about Swedish nazis fighting in Ukraine, where’s the difference? People who reason like that never seem to be able to see more than one step ahead, if even that. It scares me who low people can sink!
Well it is time to give all the animals something to eat and then something to me too 🙂
Have a great day!
