Four dogs and a human, nothing to worry about.
The weather men said the wind would calm down today and how wrong they were 🙂 It kept on blowing with the same strength and persistence it has for the last few months 🙂 There is one big difference today though, the wind is warm so for once it was quite nice being outdoors. Well not in the early morning when we were out the first time because I had shaved my head (and face) and it takes some time until one get used to how much the hair actually insulates the head but after noon it turned towards pleasant.
So we’ve been outside for the bigger part of the day. I’ve been weeding my flower beds and the vegetable patch. So far it’s mostly grass that needs to be removed but there were a few other weeds too, like mallows and geraniums. They love the sand I have instead of soil in my garden and tends to take over totally. Lots of perennials show signs of being alive and some trees now have swelling buds. I di hope we won’t get any serious setbacks this year because most plants will get so damaged that they might die when they start this early. Most trees and bushes reacts to how long our days are but when we reach 14C (57,2F) even they have problems resisting an early spring.
All dogs are now wobbly in their stomachs and it is their own fault! I caught Hector in the action yesterday when he ate his way through the garbage bag, the things he didn’t like he threw out on the floor for the others to have and I caught Nova chewing her way in to the unopened sack of deer food. They all seems to love that and their stomachs just can’t take it 🙂 So I have boiled lots of rice for two days now and it looks like I’ll have to do it a few more days 🙂
They had the big finale of the Eurovision Song Contest yesterday evening, the Swedish part of it that is. This is a very big thing in Sweden and over 30 000 people were at the arena to see and hear it live. This year was exceptional bad when it comes to quality of both the artists and the music itself. Most artists couldn’t sing clean at all but they had ego’s bigger than the country 🙂 Three songs stood out from the rest with artists that could sing and reasonable good songs. Today this is a complicated thing to go through. In the final they have eleven international jury groups and they have half the power when they place their votes.
The other half is the Swedish people by tele voting. They get votes from how many percentages of the votes they get from the people so the end result can be very surprising. Yesterdays voting actually got exiting for once. The winning song won with only two points. The winner was voted as the second most liked song from the international jury groups but got more tele votes from the viewers. Did the right song win? I actually can’t say 🙂 The woman who won has the best voice and she makes this ballad powerful but the woman coming second had a more fun song with some speed in it. I’ll post videos from both songs so You can decide for Yourself. The big big finale goes later in spring down in Copenhagen.
It’s time for a pot of tea and something to eat. No fire in the stove tonight because if there is I won’t be able to sleep because of the heat in my bedroom 🙂
Have a great day!
