Much warmer but sort of colder.
Even though it’s 10,5C (50,9F) outside this morning it still feels colder than it did when it was -6,5C (20,3F) the other day and it is the strong wind fault. It doesn’t help taking winter clothes when the wind reach me everywhere anyway. I feel it’s way too early to bring out the warm scarves and I would probably start to boil inside if I did wear them 🙂 We did get some rain during the night but it wasn’t even damp on the ground when we went out for our morning walk.
Thankfully most of our walk took place where the winds couldn’t reach us, like in the forest but then the moose flies came instead. I have to say I prefer the winds 🙂 At first I learned that moose flies didn’t drink human blood but they still could bite. Then I learned that they do drink human blood but they didn’t spread any vicious diseases. Yesterday I learned that they do spread vicious diseases too. Those flies are just nasty critters to be honest. They live like ticks by biting their victim and then drop their wings, they even sit harder than ticks and can be difficult to remove, how nice 🙂
I decided it was time to bring in the fish I have in the rain water barrels when we came home from our walk. It isn’t easy to even see three small fish in barrels that contains 200 liters (53 gallon US) of water, so I walked around with a 10 liter (2,6 gallon) water pitcher and watered the dryest plants in the garden. I have to barrels so I did a lot of watering this morning 🙂 The koi carp has grown rather much this summer but not the goldfish. I was thinking of having them in my cold cellar during winter but placed them in the aquarium instead since it’s already up and running.
The day will stay gray, gloomy and possibly rainy so I’ll take a nap after this and then I think I’ll watch a dvd and read a book until they show Grimm on channel six later today, naturally the first thing I’ll do though is to make a pot of tea. I’ll just put the kettle on the hot stove since there’s already a fire burning in it.
Have a great day!
