The weather is always bad at midsummer.
The rain started falling already yesterday and kept on falling almost all night, it did however keep calm when we went out on our morning walk, very odd 🙂 I had borrowed the pickup truck at work so I would be able to get to work today, I’m glad I don’t get easily seasick because one will be if sitting in that one for too long 🙂 But I got to work so who am I to complain. You might think that I now will complain about the weather and about how cold it is ( I had to start my radiators yesterday because of the cold weather and the high humidity) but not this week. The weather is always! bad around midsummer here 🙂
I called the garage rather early in the morning and they told me that it was the sensor on the cam shaft that had more or less broken down and the car was already fixed, they did warn me however that when that one breaks there will most likely be another sensor malfunctioning rather soon but we could always hope for the best 🙂 So there I was at work with my car not far from home ready to be taken home again. They would most likely close early at the garage but that in itself was no problem, I could just go there and pick it up when I wanted to. The key would of course be hidden somewhere only I would knew where it was. I’ll pay the bill next week, so I have no idea what this might have costed 🙂
I work at a place that thankfully always tries to make it easy for us if our cars (or pets or what ever) breaks down so we agreed that I would take the bus from the village where I work, change bus twice, get my car and then go back to work just in time to when the other painter would go home for the day. It sounds easy, doesn’t it 🙂 The first bus only went down to the highway and the next one would come after 25 minutes. That in itself would be no problem if it hadn’t been for what week it is, the week when the weather always is bad 🙂
I stood there by the road, not far from a petrol station waiting for the bus when the wind started to blow really hard and the rain started to pour down and the fun thing is that here’s no shelter against the wrath of the weather. It was too far to go to the petrol station because if the bus would come early I would have no chance to jump in because they don’t stop if no one stands by the bust stop 🙂 The sun started to shine as soon as I jumped in to the bus 🙂 The rest of the trip was rather uneventful though. Another and child came in to the bus and now days we have to wear a seat belt if the bus is equipped with those. A flashing light kept on telling her that she needed to put it on and she got so annoyed that she changed seats to one that didn’t have that flash near the seat 🙂
So I took my car and drove back to work and I must say my soul cried when I had to pass my own village to get back to work, I would rather have driven straight back home instead but a promise is a promise so I had to pass and keep on driving to work. I must say that very few have such a good place to work as I have and I wouldn’t change to any other place even if I would get a bigger salary. Colonel Hati, as I call my car, behaved exemplary all the way to work and home again and I do hope he continues to do so 🙂
Tomorrow is midsummer’s eve and even though it isn’t a holiday very few work and it is a paid day off from work. It is almost or just as big as christmas but all pagan. All magical and mythical beings will be out and about tomorrow since the night is especially magical. They are of course out and about now too but they will most likely be easiest to see tomorrow if one so wishes. I’ll tell You more about it all tomorrow. Today I’ll start showing photos from both the Hasselblad camera and the Edixa. I bought a tele-photo lens for the Edixa so it was mostly because of that I used that camera. Almost all photos were over exposed but rather easily edited.
It is time for something to eat and then I’ll see if I can find anything interesting to watch on tv, I doubt it though 🙂
Have a great day!
