It’s raining but it isn’t that bad.

Early this morning.

Early this morning.

It’s raining and then it stops for a few seconds and one thinks that finally it is over and then it starts again. But I have to be honest and say that it is kind of nice since there’s no wind at all and it mostly only drizzles. But I have had to start a fire in the stove every day because it does feel a bit damp here in my cottage. I only have one fire log left and the fire wood I have is out there in the rain so no fire today 🙂






This is the ideal weather if one has grown small trees in the kitchen and need to get them outside though. Like us humans trees can also get burned by the sun and since the sky has had an evenly grey cloud cover and there’s no risk for frost this is the time to move those plants outside. This doesn’t mean I have more space in my windows though, it just means that I could place other pots there instead 🙂






Tonight is the second semi final in the Eurovision Song Contest. Like last time I won’t see it because I must up early tomorrow morning but I will turn on the tv so I can hear the first songs before I’ll go to bed. Poland will sing today and if their stage performance is anything near the video they showed on tv there will be a scandal 🙂 I won’t say much but it’s as close to porn as You can come with clothes on and nothing really happens 🙂 In the video they do core a lot of butter and lots of cleavage is shown 🙂 🙂 🙂






There will be no post tomorrow since I’ll be on the road association meeting. I’m not sure what I was thinking of when I accepted to be the secretary of the meeting and a member of the board 🙂 I do hope we’ll be lucky this year and that the wrong people won’t come. Yes there are actually wrong people, they are the ones that always bring up topics that doesn’t belong in this meeting, they are the ones that never accepts that their point of view isn’t everybody elses point of view. They are the ones that get insanely angry about things other people do but never see the wrong doings they do. If we can have this meeting without those people it will be over quickly, otherwise it can go on for hours and hours and as soon as one meet anyone of them anywhere after too.







It’s time for a pot of tea and something to eat, tonight I think I’ll have mango yoghurt and granola.






Have a great day!

  1. Hi Christer! We too are having rain – well not at the moment but we had alot yesterday and again this evening and overnight. Its good for the flowers and trees, but I can’t get into my gardens unless I want to sink up to my knees in mud! No fun. I feel your pain about meetings. I am late at work tonight for an after work once a month meeting. After all said and done, I will have put in close to 14 hours today. No fun. But I get to keep overtime and it adds up and nice when I can take a whole week off on overtime. Have a good evening!

    • Hi Dianna!

      We actually have sunshine at the moment but it won’t last for long. Nice of the sun to show up 🙂
      I have mostly sand in the ground here so no problems with a muddy garden 🙂

      I so hope we’re lucky and that those people keep away! If they do the meeting will be over in no time 🙂 The thing that will take the most time then is the coffee and cookies afterwards 🙂

      We more or less rewfuse to work overtime at work, we are all too old and worn out by now 🙂 🙂 So we changed our working hours instead. Some come early to start up the place and after an hour we painters come and start painting and one hour after us the one picking the things down and pack them comes. By doing so we use the machienes so more efficient that no over time is needed and the plus for us working there is that we only work half day on Fridays 🙂

      Have a great day!

  2. Hi Christer,
    If someone brings up something that isn’t on the agenda, gavel them down. These meetings are supposed to be conducted for the stated purpose not for airing greivances about the neighbors that have nothing to do with roads.
    There used to be two of those “wrong” people in my work group. We always cringed whenever we had one of those meetings because we knew one or both of them would bring up stuff none of us cared about. A work meeting means you don’t have the luxury of walking out. :/

    It’s sunny and pleasant here today. I was hanging around waiting for the refrigerator repairman to come. He spent an hour replacing the drain apparatus in the freezer because it was too small and got clogged. A common problem, says he. Well, if it’s that common, why doesn’t the manufacturer just use the larger sized unit in the first place? No logic. No cost to me either because it was under warrantee.

    Enjoy the evening.

    • Hi Caryn!

      We do but they just don’t seem to get it :-)They just wait a few minutes and then they startall over again! Since I am the secretary now I don’t have the luxury to waklk away either 🙂 But I don’t think any of them will come today, I haven’t heard anything about them arguing with any of the others in the board.

      We actually had some sunshine here today 🙂 No wind so it got really warm there for a few minutes 🙂

      Yes why didn’t they put in that bigger drain apparatus from the beginning if they knew about the problem? Did they hope no oe would complain and that they would get away with it? This way it’s annoying for You and rather costly for them. But if they have the money to spend like that why not let them 🙂 🙂

      Have a great day!

  3. Great photos, as always, Bertril looks to be having a wash up, I hope those “wrong people” don’t show up and that your meeting goes smooth,

    • Hi Laurie!

      He was a bit wet after our walk so he had to dry himself.

      Ithink none of them will show up because I haven’t heard anything asbout any of them arguing with any other person in the board.

      Have a great day!

  4. i sure wish we were having your rain! i wish we were having anything except this awful 85 degree sunny weather. it is so dry here already and we are going to have this weather for at least a week. the lows are in the 60’s at night which is what our highs should be this time of year. ugh! i was wishing for a cool spring and summer. i love the pics of bertil!

    • Hi Joyce!

      So the rain missed You again. We don’t even reach the ‘s during the day at the moment 🙂
      But I won’t complain about the rain, nature shows how much it likes this! Unfortunately so does all the grass in the lawn too 🙂

      Have a great day!

  5. Perfect weather in Southern California. Thank heavens, but I hear it’s going to heat up by Sunday.

    Those are great pictures of my cat! :):)

    • Hi Mona!

      I can’t say I like this rain but nature shows very clear it loves the rain 🙂 so who am I to complain 🙂

      He’s perfect to photograph that cat 🙂

      Have a great day!

  6. Idag regnar det här med, till glädje för mina nyplanterade träd också! 🙂
    Igår när vi var tvungna att åka till Visby på e-middagen då var det kanonväder, så Rolle hann aldrig måla (täcklasera) klart poolbygget. Han hade två trappsteg kvar, plus att han behöver göra allt en gång till förstås. Själv rengjorde jag resten på altanen som såg hemsk ut efter bygget. 😦
    Så svischade vi iväg med Santos till vetten. Han har inte varit sig själv sista tiden, så vi var oroliga att det var någon sten igen – men det visade sig vara det vi misstänkte; hormonerna som spökade! 😦 😦
    En taxtjej som bor en bit ifrån höglöpte för 3 veckor sen och Santos har ju varit en avelshund, så han visste ju vad det betydde. Dessutom så hade hans kemiska kastrering efter operationen slutat fungera efter 1,5 år (!).
    Så i 3 veckor har han darrat var 10 sekund, slutat att äta (middag åt han först vid 11 på kvällen) och inte kissat ordentligt! Mycket jobbigt och oroande!! 😦 😦 😦
    Nu är han hemma igen och snart är han förvandlad till en liten “det”, TROTS att husse satt sig emot det in i det längsta. Men…med tanke på hans kissproblem så ville vetten helst operera honom, men så långt vill inte vi gå – så nu blev det en spruta igen. Om 1,5 år så har den ju slutat fungera och han är “normal” igen. Hoppas bara att det hjälper….. 🙂 🙂

    • Hejsan Susie!

      Här har det vräkt ned i flera dagar nu och det märks att naturen älskar det.
      Men det går ju framåt med poolbygget så det är ju bra.

      Jag skulle låta operera Santos, visst kostar det en del men i det långa loppet så behöver man ju inte bekymra sig mer för några löptikar. Dessutom har jag aldrig gillat den kemiska kastreringen, tycker inte om att de trycker i en massa hormoner i kroppen på dem. Men jag får säga att den höll bra länge! 1,5 år var ju riktigt bra!

      Ha det gott!
