I should never answer the phone.
I know I never should answer my mobile phone when I don’t recognize the number on the display, still I did so today I went to work 🙂 The factory owner used a phone that I don’t have the number programmed in my phone so I went straight in to the trap like an animal 🙂 One could think I should be able to be away from work one day without things going wrong 🙂 But To be honest for a change, I knew I wouldn’t have to be there for too long and the problems they had yesterday could have happened to anyone.
Even though I usually wake up at that hour anyway it still hurts inside hearing the alarm clock on a Saturday morning. I brought my dogs with me like I always do when I work over time and I can’t say that they like being there but on the other hand I don’t think they dislike it either. They do however like to walk around in the forgotten gardens that belongs to the factory. I don’t know why they belong to the factory but it is easy to see that they once were loved. In one of them it still grows lots of rhubarbs and many of us go there every summer and eat the stalks and they are delicious most likely a very old variety.
The other garden is sort of split in two. One part of it is an apple orchard. The trees are very old and some have mostly fallen apart but they still give plenty of rather tasty apples, we eat from them every autumn too. The other part looks as if it has been more fo sitting and drinking coffee in. There grows some hazelnut bushes, hawthorn and laburnums. Now days the only ones visiting it is some cats and lots of pheasants, well and me and my dogs too. I tried to see if there grow any smaller hazelnut plants and smaller hawthorn’s too, I would like to dig up a couple to bring home. I think I saw a few and I’ll ask the factory owner if it would be ok if I did. No one ever cares about those gardens so I doubt he would say no.
The sun shone all the time I was working and as soon as I got outside the clouds covered the sky and the winds started to blow hard again. I really can’t complain about the winds since they have stayed away for almost an entire week and they do bring warmer weather too. Tonight will be rainy and that’s just as good since I moved some irises yesterday and they can always feel better with a nice shower or two. Tomorrow will be partly sunny and rather warm they predict.
It’s time to make that pot of tea again and I’ll also bring out the old electric grill, I feel for grilled sausages today but it’s way to early to start a fire in the stove yet. It’s not the same but hey we can’t get all we want in life I guess 🙂 After that it’ll be a short nap and soon they’ll show Grimm on channel Six.
Have a great day!
