Back to cool mornings again :-)

We’re back at more normal summer temperatures here now, around 22C (71,6F) during the day and around 10C (50F) during the night but this night was a bit more chilly. I looked at the thermometer just before we went out for our morning walk and it told me it was 3,5C (38,3F) outside in the sunshine 🙂

It was actually really, really nice but I did wear a fleece jacket. The sun warms us up but the shadows are a tad cold for quite some time. We still have very low humidity so no morning dew today either. That however means the ticks won’t be around either so even if I miss the dew I really like the tick situation 🙂 Not many other animals around either to be honest but the ravens had a huge fight with something, they were so noisy that they could be heard all over the village.

I’ve done something with my right thumb, I don’t know what but it hurts like h… every time I move it 🙂 I haven’t hit it in anything and I have no smaller or bigger wounds in it either. I noticed the pain yesterday evening and thought that it would be gone this morning but it got worse instead. I can move it and it gets a bit better if I continue to move it every now and again but as soon as I keep it still for a few minutes it’s the same again. This is not a week to not being able to work because I’m the only painter who will be there all week. Lots of school graduations next week too. Thankfully I’m ambidexter so as long as nothing happens to my left hand things would work 🙂

I must go to the super market today. I really need mosquito nets and I’ll see if I can find a small fan too, just in case the heat returns. We all fear that this was the summer we’ll get this year. Last year started out much the same (less hot though) and as soon as our vacations started the cold and rainy weather came to stay. Looking at it statistically if May is hot June will be cool and July hot. Almost always a lot of rain though because the summer months here are also the ones with most water falling from the sky. Climate change however has changed things so now the weather turns anywhere all the time 🙂

It is time to get some breakfast and as soon as I hear that my neighbors are awake I’ll drive to the super market. I don’t want to goo to early just in case the dogs would start to bark in the dog yard when I drive away. They say they rarely do but if they do it will of course be on a Sunday morning 🙂 Normally I would be really annoyed if I had to go to a supermarket on a Sunday but we’re having a holiday tomorrow, our national day, so it doesn’t feel like I’m destroying the last day of the weekend.

  1. Go´morrn!
    Kan du ha fått artros i din tumme? Varje gång jag får ett nytt utbrott värker det som attan… Visst är det skönt att det blivit svalare, jag har svårt när det går över 25…

    • Tjänare Nina!

      Det är väl troligtvis min reumatism som satt sig där. Jag har ju ont i fingrarna till och från men detta var rejält ondare. Går det inte över får jag väl åka till vårdcentralen och se vad de kan göra, blir väl cortison i så fall.

      Är jag bara ledig kan jag ta de temperaturerna även om mina leder bråkar mera ju varmare det är, men på jobbet var det olidligt! Så jag tänker inte gnä’lla över att det sjönk till bara 22 🙂 🙂

      Ha det gott!

      Christer.

  2. Här är det underbart skönt idag. Runt 22 grader och precis som hos dej 3,5 i natt. Man var liksom lite trött på värmen som gjorde att man inte orkade göra så mycket. 🙂
    Fast vi var ju tvungna att fixa med växthuset. Det sista Rolle gjorde i förrgår var att lasera trappan från den svarta altanen ner till den korta grusgången fram till växthuset. Igår upptäckte vi att det kanske inte var så kul med kalkgrus i gången, den svartlaserade trappan blev dammigt vit direkt! 😦 😦 Och inte en droppe regn inom synhåll….. 😦 😦 😦
    Vi slängde på en trasmatta så länge, men ska köpa en plastmatta att lägga på gruset. Den är ju bara att spola av! 🙂 🙂
    Strax ska jag ut och vattna det sista i trädgården, är bara inne och vilar lite efter lunchen (färsk sparris). Har burit en massa kannor idag och har väl kanske bara en kvar nu….. vi har ju bevattningsförbud!!
    Det bör klara sig sen för idag, tidigare när det var så varmt – och blåsigt – har det varit både två och tre gånger om dagen!
    Det där med ont i en tumme har jag också ibland – och det kommer helt plötsligt. Men jag har fått för mig att mitt onda kommer ifrån att någon sena där inne hoppar lite fel. Har nämligen haft det i 30-40 år och det har inte blivit oftare eller sämre.

    • Hejsan Susie!

      Jag är glad när det äntligen blir varmt men jag måste erkänna att det var riktigt skönt när det gick ned till vanliga temperaturer igen 🙂 22 är alldeles lagom 🙂

      kalkgrus kanske dammar mera men har man grus måste man ju räkna med massa damm om det är torrt. Själv låter jag alla grusgångar växa igen nu, nog är det fint men det kräver alldeles för mycket jobb att hålla det så och det är det inte värt tycker jag. Gräs är dessutom så mycket skönare att gå på barfota 🙂

      Jag väntar med att vattna tills solen börjar sjunka, som tur är har vi inte vattningsförbud här även om vi inte fått regn på riktigt länge. Lustigt nog är det fortfarande så blött på vissa ängar att de inte kan plöja dem utan att köra fast!

      Ja har det inte ändrat sig på alla de åren har du säkert rätt! Mitt beror väl troligtvis på reumatismen. Blir det inte bättre efter några dagar får jag väl åka till vårdcentralen och då blir det säkert en smärtsam cortisonspruta.

      Ha det gott i värmen 🙂

    Hi Christer,
    I love that grass with the tufts on top. It must spread like crazy since it seems to be everywhere in a lot of your photos.

    Sounds like you pulled a muscle or something in your thumb or it could be arthritis. I did something mysterious to my right hand earlier this year. Hurt like the devil when I used it but it would hurt less after I had been moving it for awhile. Being ambidextrous is very handy at times like this. 🙂

    Having to do some errand on the last day of the weekend is annoying. Even though I am retired and every day is Saturday, I still resent having to do something on the actual weekend. It’s a habit left over from all those working years. 🙂 I hope you are able to find a fan at the shops after the hot weather you’ve been having.

    Today is very cloudy. Rain and thunder is expected with heavy rains tonight. I can hear the grass singing in anticipation of a growth spurt. :/

    Enjoy the day.

    • Hi Caryn!

      I do like that grass too, it is most likely Hare’s-tail cottongrass (Eriophorum vaginatum) which is the most common cotton-grass we have but it can also be Eriophorum brachyantherum. those two look more or less the same for an amateur. It grows only in bogs and swamps and this years it is everywhere 🙂 I guess it liked the mild winters we’ve had lately and that lots of forest have been cut down.

      It is most likely my rheumatism that gives me that pain so I’ll see if it calmes down in a few days, if not I’ll go to the doctor and they’ll most likely give me shot with cortisone. Yes it is very handy being ambidextrous 🙂

      No fan and no mosquito nets either. So I bought the very thin white ground cover and hung it up instead. Lets the light in and keep most flies oputside. I cut it from the bottom and almost all the way up in to strips because flies don’t like things that move around iun the wind, could be something that tries to catch them 🙂 It’ll have to do until I find real mosquito net 🙂

      Sunshine all day with a nice breeze and I’ll enjoy it as much as I can 🙂

      Have a great day!

      Christer.

    i was wondering if it was arthritis or rheumatism in your thumb. i hope it goes away. i wish our summer was over. it has been dreadfully hot and it’s still spring. at least today we are getting a bit of rain.

    • Hi Joyce!

      It’s most likely my rheumatism hitting my thumb and I too hope it will calm down soon but if it is I know it’ll come back soon again.

      I am so glad that we don’t have Your summer temperatures 🙂 You have had this heat since early spring and wasn’t it the same last year too?
      Some predict some rain this coming Wednesday some doesn’t so I guess we’ll know on Wednesday 🙂

      Have a great day!

  5. Christer,
    We have had a weird summer as well. Gracie now has a tick collar as she has had 5 ticks already, the first time she has ever had them. It was the warm winter which didn’t kill them off.

    Today stayed cool all day long, but we didn’t get the rain everyone else did. For a while we had a wind, not a breeze, but a strong wind. It will be in the low 60’s for the rest of the week, about out normal temperature for this time of year; however, we won’t have much sun.

    It was a quiet Sunday for me. I did watch The Martian. I had seen it when it first came out, but it was almost as good the second time.

    Nothing much doing this week, except for the laundry!

    Hope your finger feels better and you figure how what it is.

    Have a good week!

    • Hi Kat!

      Yes warm winters might be nice but way too many of those nasty ticks survives and then we get even more from the migrating birds. I was surprised to know how many they can carry to us from more southern places.

      We are all worried that this was the summer we got, later next week will be much cooler and when that starts to happen it has a tendency tro stay for the rest of the summer.

      I still haven’t seen that movie and both Star Wars and The last Hunger games are still unopened beside the tv, the weather has been just too good since I bought them 🙂 I’ll see if I can find the martian too, I know I have the same taste as You when it comes to scifi.

      My finger is slightly better. As long as it doesn’t get worse I think it’ll work at work 🙂

      Have a great day!

      Christer.
