Nasty cold but wonderful morning. (and the meeting yesterday of course)
The meeting went well despite most of those that usually argue and complain was there 🙂 I think it had to do with the fact that people from the county council were there and that the meeting was held by the castle owner and his staff. I do understand those that wants municipal water and sewer, I really do. But I don’t understand why they lied and said that almost every household was going to join. It turns out that 1/3 of the households won’t connect to this.
There were other things that made me doubtful of this, for instance the other economic association that we want to join for this isn’t even sure they want us with them and if they would we now only have one week to decide whether we want this or not, after next week they start digging. The price is another factor, it’s high enough as it is but can become even higher because we haven’t negotiated about a loan yet, so the price we have to decide on isn’t sure at all 🙂
There are too many buts and ifs so I won’t connect to this and neither are the most of the other neighbors close to me. Those wanting the sewer connected are the ones whose sewer system is condemned. They can’t even think of the alternatives that we have today like the modern composting toilets or the freezer kinds that freezes everything to ashes. They also believe that the property value will rise as much as this system costs. Unfortunately for them, no one that wants to move here belongs to those people who wants any connection with any municipal department 🙂 It’s way too long to the bus stop and the bus doesn’t pass by especially often and it’s even longer to the closest grocery store.
I took the day of from work today, I had to get that thingy in my car swapped so it can pass the inspection later on this month. The sun has been shining all day and the temperature has been below 32F all the time. We have also had a nasty, raw and biting weak wind that really destroyed much of the morning when I walked around in Gudhem while waiting for my car. But it was wonderful as soon as I could get away from the wind. I walked around for two hours and after that I went to Falköping to buy more deer food and some fire logs.
They didn’t have any deer food and wouldn’t get any until next week so I didn’t know what to do. But the personnel started calling around to other shops (that also was out of deer food) and the head quarters and asked what else I could use. Everyone they asked said that I should by a horse feed pellet instead and now I’m waiting to see what the deers think of it 🙂
It’s time to make something to eat, I haven’t had anything since 6 am this morning and that’s 11 hours ago 🙂
Have a great day!
