I’ve spotted the first mobile home.
It feels like an early autumn day outside, the sky is grey and a nice calm rain, almost drizzle is falling. It’s rather warm too, we’ve had 5,3C (41,5F) today and I can’t remember having it this warm ever since I moved up here. It wasn’t that unusual when I lived by the ocean though, we rarely had real winter there and if it actually arrived it was so cold and windy that it was impossible to stay outdoors for more than a few seconds, ocean winds can be so nasty.
I lived not especially far from the ocean but hills stopped me from seeing the water except for a tiny gap, just big enough to show the sails on a bigger sailing boat 🙂 In warm summers weak winds carried the smell of salt water and rotten sea weed, strange combination but I’ll always connect it with warm summers. But I didn’t live far from forests either, Gothenburg is a city filled with parks that are more or less real forest. Lots of smaller lakes around too and I think that no matter where one lives in that city one is never further away from water than just a few minutes. Still the only thing I really miss when living here is the ocean.
I’ve spotted the first mobile home down by the lake, that is a just as sure spring sign than any bird or flower 🙂 I wouldn’t be surprised if the first cranes will come within a few days or if they actually already have arrived. My work friend saw the first Lark last weekend so I’m pretty sure I’ll see them here this weekend. I do love sign of spring but it is way too early, winter can still arrive and stay way in to April or early May. But I’ll enjoy them anyway, at least if winter does arrive it won’t stay for too long 🙂
I couldn’t find anything interesting to watch on tv tonight, not even the Knowledge channel had something that caught my interest, the only one I could think of watching is a rerun and it wasn’t that interesting to be honest 🙂 But I have lots of dvd’s I haven’t watched yet so I guess that it either will be an early night or watching a dvd.
Have a great day!
