Lawn mowing time again.
I heard it from west and that’s the best they say, the Cuckoo bird that is. We have a saying here about cuckoos and what it means when one hear it for the first time every spring. It rimes in Swedish and sounds better than translated to English, but it’s best from the west, it means death if one hear it from south, it means comforting from east and it means the year will be dry. I almost always hear it from west and I guess the bog is a good place to stay for them.
Almost as warm here today as it was yesterday and I’m glad I don’t live in my old home town because they had almost 29C (84,2F) and that is way to warm this early in the year. But this warm air won’t stay for very long, cooler air will come from the north and rain from the west. I’m especially glad it wasn’t that hot since I had to mow the lawn for the first time this year. It wasn’t that bad to be honest, I like the new electric mower I bought last year, it’s strong and very quiet.
Sune decided it was time to enlarge his territory today, why be happy with this little garden when we can take over the farm next door. I did wonder where he was when I heard a dog barking loudly somewhere (he came running from the farm up the road). I yelled so loudly at him when he came that he started peeing 🙂 I think I also scared my neighbor next door but I don’t know if he peed too 🙂 🙂 🙂 I doubt it helped though, the soon they started working on the field outside my cottage he ran to the gate and started barking agin, he came back quickly though when he heard me yelling again 🙂 🙂 🙂
Tonight’s the Eurovision Song Contests grand finale and the five nordic countries (together with the Netherlands) are the big favorites. I’ll show You the winner in tomorrow’s post. Personally I don’t like our song and is hoping for Finland or Norway to win. It will go on for three hours and won’t stop until after midnight, so I hope to be able to see most of it anyway. Not so much because the competition is great but my sister and I send each other text messages on our phones and they aren’t always nice towards the competitors 🙂 🙂 🙂
The coffee is ready and now its time to make something to eat. It feels like thunder is in the air so I might not be able to watch any television at all, several thunder clouds have passed behind the mountain during the day and I guess I might not be that lucky with all those clouds 🙂
Have a great day!
