I woke up to a rather chilly morning, the thermometer showed only -3C (26,6F) and some plants and my car had were covered with a thin layer of ice. As soon as the sun rose the fog arrived and at that moment I wished I didn’t have to go to work, the world was so beautiful. But both the sun and fog disappeared rather quickly and the rest of the days has been mostly cloudy.
Sune loves to take a bath in every creek or ditch we pass on our walks which mostly makes him smell like mud. Unfortunately he now has understood that we have a pond in the garden and he knows how to use it 🙂 🙂 🙂 The once so clear water is now a muddy mess and the filter has clogged totally 🙂 🙂 🙂 The only good thing about this is that hen doesn’t mind shower either, something he now does regularly 🙂
The second annoying fly is flying around annoying me at the moment, the first one landed on sticky flypaper but this one seems to avoid it really good. There’s also a mosquito stuck to it, it flew right in to the sticky paper with its head first and it looks rather odd 🙂 I have my two first tomatoes growing by my kitchen window now 🙂 I do hope they will manage to ripe even if I would move the plants outside.
I have at least one swallows nest under my tiles just above the kitchen door 🙂 It’s almost scaring how fast they fly in under that tile without breaking their necks or wings 🙂 🙂 🙂 I also have lots of house sparrow nests under the tiles too and I guess the wasps will have their homes there too like every year. But this year I don’t want any wasp nests above my entrance door so I sprayed poison there before they even had started to look for a new home, my hope is that the smell from the poison will keep them away. They do eat a lot of flies so I don’t mind having them close to the cottage.
I have over 100 photos that I could show here today 🙂 But it would take just too much space in this blog if I show You them all 🙂 perhaps I’ll show some tomorrow and on Sunday too. Now it’s time to make a pot of tea and something to eat. Tonight they’ll start showing Grimm on channel Six again on a time I actually can see it but they have already sort of destroyed it since they showed the second season so late on Sunday nights and the rerun on Monday mornings at 5am!!!! But it looks like we who protested actually reached them 🙂
Have a great day!
