I don’t like it when a machine have ideas of its own.
I didn’t think it was possible to have an even slower day than yesterday but today won big, it was so slow it felt I’d been there a week. Still I had plenty to do all the time but that didn’t help at all. The machine has gotten ideas of its own too and that’s never a good thing🙂 It can suddenly decide it has no wish what so ever to paint an entire thing, it can stop somewhere in the middle and then start at the end of it again🙂 It can also decide that the programs I’ve made are dull and boring and start adding or reduce the amount of paint instead of following what I have programmed it to do.
I wouldn’t mind that much if it was consistent and sort of went on in the same way the entire day because then I can adjust it, it’s much worse when it changes its mind several times every hour🙂 We are a few people short this week as aswell so I can’t check what it is doing all the time either. Well I can only hope it behaves tomorrow because I’m a bit tired of this now.
It’s still warm and today it wasn’t pitch black when I came home after work, not far from though but I had light enough to see where I was going when I gave the deers their food. I have either a vole or a mole in my garden now. Neither of them seems to like my sandy soil but they dig in a few meters (much the same in yards) and tries to find something to eat. I don’t mind the mole that much because it only eats worms or insect larvae. They move around spring bulbs to new places but doesn’t eat them.
Voles however eats just anything, especially spring bulbs and roots. Yesterday I saw that I hade one of those dirt piles just beside my Osage Orange. The plant itself shouldn’t be able to live here at all but I have to say that it’s a tough one. So now I can only hope that the roots of it tastes awful for a vole or that it is a mole🙂 Otherwise I don’t think I have any Osage Orange left this spring.

It’s time for a pot of tea and something to eat. All the animals (both indoors and outdoors ones) have already gotten their food and Teodor is out walking it off🙂 Bertil had some more and all the dogs are sleeping all over the cottage.
