Almost a summers day.
We’re having a really nice day, almost summer warm, no clouds in the sky but very windy. A big storm is passing north of here (Norway will be hit the worst I’ve read) and some of the wind reach us too. The forest takes the most of it so I can mostly just hear it here but my car was tossed here and there on my way home. First I went to the vet station to get Orvar back home and after that I drove to the garage to get a rubber gasket because one was broken on my car and some oil dropped out on the hot engine. Not much but the smell wasn’t nice 🙂
I have now had three days without waking up because I was coughing so I think it is safe to say that the cold now has passed away. I still have a hoarse voice but that’s nothing compared to coughing 🙂 I hope that this was the cold I got this year but I’m afraid it wasn’t 🙂 People at work who has small children tend to bring everything their children gets to work with them and no one seems to be smart enough to stay at home when they start feeling that the cold has hit them.
I’ll get new working hours for the three coming weeks. We have so much to do so it isn’t enough that people work overtime any longer, so from Monday I’ll start and stop working an hour earlier Monday to Thursday but have the same hours on Friday. When I go home in the afternoon a new shift starts and they’ll be working way into the night. I wouldn’t mind to continue to have these hours after these three weeks either, it won’t be long until it is dark when I leave home and dark when I leave work. If I could stop working an hour earlier I would get at least half an hour with daylight when I stop working.
I am however not sure that those who start working an hour before me wants to continue with that, 5:30 am is awfully early to start working and they would have to get up at least an hour earlier than that if they want to get to work in time 🙂 I start working an hour later than them because it takes about an hour for the material that I’ll paint to reach the paint box, it has to pass a huge washing machine and a drier before I can paint it.
It is time to make some food both for the dogs and me. After that we’ll probably take another walk. I would like to take a walk in the forest but the moose flies are a bit nasty now. I’ll go there tomorrow morning if it is chilly enough.
Have a great day!
