It is a bit dry here now.
It’s a bit cooler today and the wind is rather strong but I don’t mind. The ground will be even more dry though and that would be a problem if a fire starts. I doubt that anyone would even think to start a grill or anything else but accidents happen and if it would today the fire would spread faster than fast. But it isn’t that bad by the bog, everything is still green and lush there. Bog fires are really bad since the fire can continue underground for days, even weeks. But they say we might get some rain tonight but I doubt that would help much.
My tomatoes loves this weather though 🙂 I can pick a few every day now but there won’t be any peppers. I thought my cats had killed all pepper plants but it looks as if a few actually survived but it’s too late for them to even get any peppers now, we won’t have this wonderful weather for much longer I’m afraid. But I’m happy for what we’ve gotten, I’m pretty sure these sunny weeks will help us through the long winter and perhaps help us stay away from some of those colds we always get.
The House sparrows are having a new bunch of small ones, I think this is the third time so far 🙂 Their nest is beneath the tiles just above the kitchen door and I can hear them beg for food all day long 🙂 The swallows have already moved out from their nest, they were next door neighbors to the house sparrows. It’s amazing how fast they flew straight in to the nest without killing themselves 🙂 Now they all eat as much flies as possible before the big move south.
We just came home from our walk and we were down by the bog this time. It feels strange but oh so nice to let the mosquito hat stay at home. I don’t think that has been possible before. Normally there are so much mosquitoes and flies of all kinds down there that I need to wear that hat the whole time. Now it’s even possible to walk there without it even when the sun is going down and it should be mosquitos happy hour. I’m not sure why it is like that but I like it 🙂 The few that hangs around and lays their eggs in my water barrels get eaten by the goldfish and my koi carp 🙂
It’s time to make dinner, today I’ll have chicken, fried potatoes and baked beans. I wasn’t sure about the beans at first but tried it the other day and it works just fine 🙂
Have a great day!
