We’re having a sunny but cool day today and I stop working already at 1pm on Fridays so I’ve been able to enjoy it. The days get shorter and shorter now and soon it will be dark both when I go to work and when I come home again. In summer we have almost no dark hours at all and when winter arrives we have very few hours with daylight. Some say it helps when the snow comes because it’s white but that’s only true if the moon shines. It’s just as dark as it is without any snow if it is cloudy.
Sometimes I can see something reflecting the sun in the Forbidden Forest. I’m curious to what it might be but I’ll never go in there again.
I had decided to change to winter tires tomorrow but a water pump changed those plans. Not the water pump in my car or to my own water here in the cottage but a water pump in the huge washing machine at work. A water pump in those sizes is nothing that any company has lying in some storage because they are nasty expensive and one has to wait almost four weeks if one orders a new one! Thankfully they found two old ones nearby so we could start working again after two days.
Bertil wasn’t comfortable at all walking around by the creek. Every now and again a stench reached us and I guess it most likely is hog poop but I’m saying it’s trolls🙂
Unfortunately that means over time. Well I need those hours for when I’m going to the hospital again so I really should be glad that there is some over time. So now I’m hoping the weather will be just as fine on Sunday as it’s going to be tomorrow so I can change the tires then instead. I have a tendency to wait for too long and it’s really no fun changing tires as it is and when I have to do it when the snow is falling it’s down right nasty🙂
My dogs will of course follow me to work and after that I think we’ll take a walk in my old neighborhood since I lived not far from this factory when I moved to the country side. My work friends all think it’s wild hogs that walks around my cottage and makes my dogs want to stay indoors, I guess their right but I still blame those trolls🙂 It’s time for a pot of tea and something to eat, today it will be yoghurt, sliced apples and a sliced banana, cinnamon and some ginger.
Hector learned painfully that there’s electricity in the fence now. I have no idea why because there’s no cattle in the pasture?!
Have a great day!
The ols crab apple tree by the dog yard and its seedling. Strange how different in colors they are.
