A rather nice morning.
Once again I slept for unusually long and thought that I’ve missed the beat part of the day, when the sun rise but there was no sun to see, instead we had fog and that might even be better 🙂 It stayed for quite some time and that’s something it doesn’t do as long as it is summer. I won’t say that autumn has arrived but it is close now.
This was one of those mornings when I wouldn’t be surprised if I was the only human left on the planet. Thick fog and not a sound to be heard, it was so quiet that the only thing that could be heard was my shoes on the gravel road, not even the magpies made a sound and all the cows mostly ate or looked at us while we were passing them. It is still very quiet here but the magpies have decided to stay in my garden again telling all the world that they aren’t afraid of dogs, humans or cats 🙂
They should fear cats though because Bertil almost took one the other day and it was pure luck that the young magpie managed to escape. The rest of that evening the magpies complained like crazy in my apple tree, I could scare them away for a minute or two but then they returned and continued to complain 🙂 🙂 I wonder why they choose this garden where dogs and cats can try to take them all the time when there are places so much safer to stay at?
We always have lots of seagull on the roof at my work and most people complain a lot about them since they tend to poop on our cars 🙂 (I love them though but then again I don’t own a brand new car 🙂 ). They’ve tried almost everything to scare them away without any bigger success, not until someone bought a kite! They are now selling kites that are attached to a fishing rod, You know the kind they have when angling for fish. They attached the rod to the roof it only takes a very weak wind to make this kite fly, the seagulls vanished within minutes and haven’t come back for over a month! By the way, do You know that the Swedish name for kites are “drakar” which is the same name we use for dragons?
Most of the fog is gone now but the sky will remain cloudy for most of the day according to predictions, I don’t mind if only the humidity will sink a lot because it’s sky-high now. I’ll mow the lawn later today if the grass dries up some, otherwise I’ll mow it tomorrow when we according to predictions will have a warm and sunny day. I’ll believe it if it happens 🙂
Have a great day!
