We’ve had a really nice summer day again here, nature doesn’t seem to understand that autumn should slowly have arrived now. I can feel autumn in the air when I go to work in the mornings though, it sort of smells like it now. Leafs have started to turn yellow and the autumn berries are all more or less ripe now. But it is so dry now that the mushrooms have stopped growing and they are now drying up and becoming fewer again, it’s only the corpse mushroom (they smell like rotten flesh) that still grows as if it is raining like it has all summer 🙂
Nova is a bit grumpy when it comes to her food now, nothing is good enough for her in the morning, she sniffs at it some and then leaves. I just put it in the fridge as the stone hearted man I am but always put something extra in it in the afternoon when she gets it again 🙂 She’s just the same when it comes to treats, only the best and most expensive is good enough for her 🙂 It usually lasts for a week or two and then she’s back to normal again 🙂
I worked in the neighbor factory today so time just flew by, I was a bit stressed since it was my turn to buy the buns and cookies for our weekly meeting. I managed to arrive just a bit late thankfully 🙂 After work I drove to the pharmacy in Falköping to get Orvar’s medicine and as always they didn’t have it but I ordered it so it will arrive tomorrow and I’ll drive there to get it in the morning, Falköping isn’t that fun to be honest so I’ll try to make it a short visit 🙂 I might make a stop at the Tea and Coffee shop though, I want some cherry tea and they do sell the most delicious ice cream too 🙂 Nasty expensive to be honest but as I said, it is delicious 🙂
No need to mow the lawn this week 🙂 It is so dry now that lots of lawns are turning yellow. Mine isn’t but at least it looks like it has stopped growing 🙂 One of my apple trees have delicious apples ready to be eaten now, they are no good for storage so I just pick them from the tree and start eating. I could of course make an apple pie with them so I better check what I have here at home, I think I need custard or perhaps I should make my own this time but then I need other things, like vanilla.
It is time to have some dinner, today I’ll have sausages and french fries, I’ve just put it all in the oven. I never deep fry the fries myself, hot oil and happy dogs is a bad combination to be honest 🙂
Have a great day!
We’ve had a cloudy morning today and even if it actually was much warmer than the sunny ones it did feel much colder. It’s a cold front that tries to fly in above us but the high pressure will push it back and towards north instead, the high pressure is already winning the battle because most clouds have now disappeared. We’ll have strong winds for a few days more though.
I really have nothing special to do today, normally I do the laundry on Sundays but I worked that off bit by bit during the week. There is a little that I can wash but it could just as well wait until next Sunday. I think the forest will be off limit all day today since it’s the premiere of the deer buck hunting today. But I think that if they haven’t shot any so far this morning they won’t shoot anything for the rest of the day either, they don’t like to move around when the wind is as strong as it is today and I know my deer bucks and how and when they move around 🙂
I only won around $2 US on the lottery this weekend so I will need to continue to work for at least one more week 🙂 Too bad since we’ll have really nice weather here this week 🙂
I think today will be a pancake day, both the dogs and I like that 🙂 I always make them a few to sahre and lots for myself too of course. I could do waffles instead but the waffle iron is an old heavy one that gets so messy every time I use it, it’s easier with pancakes to be honest 🙂
It’s time for a pot of tea and perhaps I should do that laundry, thge wind blows so hard that it’ll dry the laundry in a few minutes 🙂
Have a great day!
We’re having a strong wind again today (and it will last for a few days they say) that works like a giant hairdryer together with the sun so I had to water all my vegetables today and a few other potted plants as well. The wind didn’t do an especially good job with the grass though because it was soaking wet even if we haven’t had any rain in days. It’s boring to mow the lawn as it is and it is even much worse when it is wet.
It looks like the few remaining flies we have here now lives in my garden, I got bitten bad a few times while mowing and there were some forest flies that wanted to check out how it looks inside my ears, so I had to put in earplugs to keep them out 🙂 I don’t have those problems anywhere else right now, not even by the bog.
Nothing much else has happened here today. The hunting season for deer buck starts tomorrow morning so I had a talk with the hunters. They’ll be out already at 4:30 am and will as they have said put out signs on every road. They have also been informed not to shoot my stalker 🙂 so they will stay away from the areas he usually walk around in. No doe will be shot at all this year if I understood things right, these hunters are all for wildlife preservation and will do what is necessary to keep the wildlife healthy and strong.
It is time for a pot of tea even if it really is too late for that but I feel so tired that I doubt any tea will keep me up this night, I’ve just woken up from a nap and it feels like I should have stayed in bed 🙂
Have a great day!
The day started our very much like yesterday morning, sunny and cold but without the fog. There was very little dew too so it was hard to see the spider webs in most parts of the fields. It was quite nice even if I really should have worn a sweater, I’ll think of that tomorrow morning.
The garage called me and said my car was ready to be picked up. There was a spare part they didn’t have and neither their supplier, it’s a part of the exhaust pipe that has a hole in it, so they fixed it temporarily with some gunk called Gungum. It’ll last for a while and then they’ll fix the pipe just before I’ll go to the annual vehicle inspection.
I started walking to the bust stop and it didn’t take long before a neighbor asked if he should drive me there but I said no because I had brought one of the old cameras and wanted to take a few photos on the way. I was almost at the stop when I saw how fast time had passed and hurried to the bust stop and made it just in time to when the bus was supposed to arrive. How wrong I was 🙂 I was almost 25 minutes early 🙂 I’m not sure why I thought the bus would arrive at that time but I walked down to the lake and got some photos there.
I hadn’t been standing for long at the bust stop when another village drove by on the highway. He stopped and pulled back to the bust stop and sort of parked on the road and told me to jump in to his car. There was no time to argue at that point because several lorries were on the way and it didn’t look as if they would stop or even try to pass him on the outside 🙂 He drove me all the way to the garage even if I did try to make him stop much earlier 🙂 I really can’t complain when people wants to help, can I 🙂 🙂
I drove by the grocery store in Gudhem on my way home, I really didn’t want anything special, perhaps an ice cream but who knew what I might find in there. Nothing much because they didn’t have much to sell. I’m afraid the store doesn’t have long time left. Lots of the shelves only had a few items standing on them and lots of it was close to the expiring date or had passed it. It was sad to see and I’m pretty sure it’ll be gone before Christmas if not much earlier than that. It’s also the post office and that too will be gone when the store closes down.
It’s time to take a short nap and after that we’ll take a walk, in the forest I think. The sun is shining and it is warm and nice outside. The wind is also blowing and rather briskly I may say. Can’t get much better than that, can it? 🙂
Have a great day!
