Nasty cold night.
I slept unusually long time last night , almost ten hours and later in the day I took a nap for over two hours 🙂 🙂 It feels like I’ve been robbed of my day since there’s not much left of it now 🙂 My nose was so stuffed this morning that I had to breathe through my mouth and that gave me a little problem while brushing my teeth. It felt like I was drowning when I accidentally inhaled lots of tooth paste 🙂 If I had died drowned by it I’m pretty sure that the one autopsied me would say, he was way to young to die but at least his lungs smelled minty fresh 🙂
It was -17 C (1,4 F) as coldest last night but by the time we got out for our morning walk it was much warmer, -13 C (8,6 F) 🙂 But since the wind finally had given up and the sun shone it still felt rather nice out there. But it was to short time for any rime to build up on the trees and bushes, I guess that if the coming night gets as cold and the wind stays away we’ll get it by tomorrow morning though.
The European Union is trying, once again, to remove all varieties of seeds that isn’t sold by a huge seed company. They want every seed variety to be tested and registered for a rather huge amount of money every year. That means that most heirloom varieties will be gone and varieties that works up here in the Nordic countries will be forbidden. They have tried this before and say that it’s because they want us all to have the highest quality on the seeds we buy.
I wonder if they take us for idiots? The European Parliament is one of the most corrupt places You can find and naturally some people will make big money on this by making sure that only seeds from big companies will be sold! (seeds that doesn’t work well up here in the northern parts of Europe) Last time they tried this the smaller seed companies gave away their seeds and then we could give them money as a sort of present if we wished and all of us wished to do that 🙂 🙂 🙂 I guess we’ll have to do something like that again if our government doesn’t listen to us. Last time they actually did, after a very long time of protests, and managed to make an exception for our country. I can only hope they’ll do that again.
But we can of course buy seeds directly from the American countries and the other countries outside of the EU, internet is a blessing sometimes 🙂 🙂 🙂 I know of a couple of seeds firms in the USA that I can buy vegetable seeds from when I need to 🙂
It’s getting colder outside again, the night will be clear and nasty cold again I think. So I’ve just started a fire in the stove and I’ll make some cocoa and perhaps a sandwich or two. Nothing good on tv as far as I know so I’ll watch another episode of All Creatures Great and Small 🙂
Have a great day!
