Clothespins can be used for many things.
It’s a fairly nice morning, the sun is shining but it’s covered with the eventual cloud that passes by every now and again. 10C (50F) and only a weak wind, weak but sort of sinister cold. I get the feeling snow will arrive at any moment but none is predicted and to be honest, there’s not a snow cloud in sight. I have the kitchen door mostly open but every now again the cloud is rather big and it feels like it takes forever for the sun to appear and warm up my kitchen again.
I got the phone call yesterday afternoon and off I went to pick up the thing I bought so long ago 🙂 I was waiting with my car at a bust stop, the bus had just passed so I knew I could stand there for over an hour before the next one would arrive. It seems that several people had decided to meet there because several cars stopped and the drivers all asked if I was that or that person 🙂 It was so warm that I opened up my car windows to let the air flow and when I had gotten what I was waiting for I had planned to drive in to Skara to take a few photos.
Suddenly the window on the front passenger side sounded strange, like if some sand was crushed by the window and then the entire window fell don into the door 🙂 🙂 🙂 So I changed my plans and drove home again, there was after all a weather prediction saying rain would come the same afternoon. I was a bit lucky in all this because a corner of the window still peeked up and it was very easy to get the rest up and in place too but then I had the problem of how to keep it there. In the old days one often saw car windows with a screw driver pushed down to keep it up. I however chose two wooden clothespins, You know the one with a spring attaching the two halves together.
I removed the spring, put the two halves back to back and pushed them down between the window and the car door. The window sits very well now and this is how it will stay until I feel I have the time to let the garage take care of it 🙂 🙂 🙂 I have so many other things to do that will keep me away from work, like doctors visits, that I feel that since this isn’t an emergency it can wait for some time. I know they usually have a car that I can borrow at the garage but sometimes other customers have gotten them before me 🙂
So what was it I had bought You might wonder, well I think one can call it a candle house or light house even though it really isn’t a light house 🙂 It is made from clay and can take our winter climate and one is supposed to put a light inside it so it can shine nicely when it is dark outside. I knew that the chimney was broken but I’ll buy some paint and try to make it look like a natural decay on a house left long ago. But I didn’t only get the house, my friend that had kept it for me for so long also sent me some other things.
They were deep frozen and wrapped in a beautiful green blanket. I looked down into the two different plastic bags they were wrapped in and saw the biggest chicken I’ve ever seen together with two huge chicken legs and some pork. It all came from animals she raised herself and the animals never understood what happened the day they got slaughtered, the pig for instance was eating and had no interest what so ever about what happened around him. Well, it wasn’t any chicken to be honest, neither were the legs, it was a small turkey 🙂 🙂 🙂 She has told me to cook the turkey on low heat for a long time and when the days comes I’ll send You a mail Joyce to get a good recipe 🙂 (no photos of the meat though, they are resting in my freezer at the moment 🙂 )
The laundry is hanging outside to dry and it is time to make a pot of tea and something to eat I think, well at least the tea will be made 🙂
Have a great day!
