Summer Time or daylihgt savings time.
It was our turn to change our clocks last night, we call it Summer Time, and I truly dislike this change every time it happens. Doesn’t matter which way we turn the clock I still dislike it. It will take weeks until I’ve gotten used to it and then it won’t be long until we change back again. I know they started this because they thought we could save money by doing this but it is kind of useless up here in the north, soon it will be daylight here for over 18 hours a day anyway 🙂 Further north the sun won’t go down at all during summer but we all pay for this during winter when we have very little daylight at all.
We walked in to the village like we often do on Sunday mornings. -6,4C (20,5F) and not especially much heat from the morning sun. I could hear all the cranes down by the lake and they are so many now that it is anything but a nice sound, it’s more like a deafening wall of sounds that could be anything noisy to be honest. I’ll go down there some day to take some photos but there are still way too many tourists there at the moment, probably more of them than there is cranes :-), so I’ll wait for a while more.
I could see that they already had torn down what was left of the building after the explosion and they will put up a new wall on the barn just beside it because it too started to burn but they managed to stop it before it was too late. Give it a day or two more and I wont be able to see that anything has happened there, I’ll just see the empty space where the building once stood. I’ve hard that they do this as fast as they can because there’s just too many curious people coming to see how it looks, good idea!
I’ve put up a fence around the vegetable garden so the dogs hopefully will understand that it is no good place to dig in 🙂 They love Dandelion roots and dig them up as soon as they find them. I know there will be Dandelions in that patch sooner or later so I’ll at least try to stop the dogs from digging there 🙂 My neighbor the farmer is out cutting down last years grass, they never cut it down last autumn, I guess they already had as much hay and silage as they needed. So they cut it down now to make it easier for the new grass to get some sunlight and start growing faster. I’m pretty sure I’ll need to mow y lawn next Friday, the grass here never seems to need anything much to start growing 🙂
I’ve a pot of coffee ready and after this I’ll go outside to my patio to have a cup or two. I don’t think I’ll do anything in the garden today because Sundays are my laundry days and I think I’ll vacuum the cottage too. But then again, it is a shame to waste a day indoors when it finally is wind free and sunny 🙂
Have a great day!
