An expensive start to the year.
This spring has been a bit expensive so far, first the car repairs, then new winter tires and today new summer tires. But to be honest, it wouldn’t have been cheaper if I had bought a new car🙂 Well I could have gotten new tires if I had bargained good🙂 I needed new tires because it’s not allowed to drive with winter tires after April 15th unless it’s winter weather. The problem is that it’s the individual police officer that decides what winter weather really is, so one police can say that it is winter weather while another can say that it’s not.
I don’t know how fast time passed yesterday, I did a few errands and suddenly it was almost night. I did however have time to make a pie🙂 I made a mixed one with apples, mango’s raspberries and persimmon’s in it. The persimmons were a miss though, they tasted strange and the consistence got a bit weird🙂 But anything goes down with a nice custard🙂 This morning I realised that I had no bread at home, so I had the left overs from the pie as breakfast🙂🙂🙂
I fetched my car after work and was supposed to go to the store to buy some bread but my mind had other things to think of, like how silent the car became with summer tires and how easy it was to drive way to fast when the car was that silent🙂 So I still have no bread at home🙂 But I have some scones in the oven right now so I can have something this evening and tomorrow at breakfast because I’m out of pie now🙂
I think yesterday was the last time I had to buy deer food this winter, if the predictions are right we’ll have spring next week and I can see more and more green straws of grass now, not enough to help the deers especially much but as soon as it starts to grow it’ll grow fast. They haven’t even shown up here by my garden yet and normally there would be five or more eating here by now. I guess they feel safer out in the forest than here where lots of people now will be outside longer and longer every day. But they will be back next autumn, they know where the food is🙂
