Feels like spring in the air.
I can’t say that we have a wonderful weather but every now and again the sun shines and it is rather warm. But the wind is once again very strong and the rain falls on and off. Still it was so nice and warm when walking in the forest where the wind can’t reach that I had my jacket open. I’ve cleaned up the garden after my dogs and I think that is more or less all I’ll do outside today. We’ll have a walk or two more of course but this feels like a day best spent indoors.
Beatrice suggested yesterday that I might not have turned on the lid properly after filling up my car with petrol and that this might be the reason for why the engine light started to shine. So I went outside this morning and I’m pretty sure she’s right. Who does ever read the text on those lids? This morning however I did and it said that I must turn the lid until I heard at least three clicks from it or the engine light most likely would start to shine. I can honestly say that I never heard any clicks. I couldn’t turn the lid on especially hard on my little Mazda because something was wrong with that fuel tank so it created a vacuum in the tank. So naturally I did the same on this car 🙂 But it looks as if they have to turn it of at the garage so I need to go there anyway, at least before the annual inspection.
The forest was filled with bird song this morning, at least it was before the wind got really strong and it was spring songs. I could hear both Trumpet swans and geese flying over my head but no cranes so far. I guess it’s just a matter of time until they come too, well we have one here already but one crane makes no spring 🙂 This is way to early and a setback is bound to happen but oh how I wish it wasn’t 🙂 Snowdrops are flowering in my garden and the Ussuri redberried elderberry bush (well I have two but the second one always seems to be close to death so I don’t count that one 🙂 ) has already big flower buds.
All animals are sleeping at the moment and none seems to be eager to go outside in the wind. I think I’ll be joining them after this but first I need a pot of tea and perhaps something to eat. Yesterday I didn’t feel hungry at all and today that’s all I do 🙂 I’ll put more fire logs in the stove so the fire in there won’t die while I’m napping. I’ll turn on the radio so I can hear some from the Olympics but I guess I’ll fall asleep rather quickly anyway 🙂
Have a great day!
