Hector loved it.
I could hear the thunder the entire evening and I could see the lightning up on the mountain but it never really did much noise down here. Two flashes of light over my cottage and I think that was it. I was sitting and reading upstairs when I noticed something hanging from my roof just outside the window. It looked like two strings but I have nothing out there that can hang from my roof. It turns out it was my telephone wires 🙂 I have two going in to my cottage because a person that used to rent this cottage years ago wanted two lines, one for private use and one for his business.
They have started digging for the water and sewer now and they tore down the telephone wires yesterday. I’m not sure how because they hang over six meters up (much the same in yards). I did wonder why the lightning never went out my telephone jacket during the thunderstorms last night 🙂 Anyway, today they called to me while I was working, it turns out they also had cut off the electricity cable to my garage 🙂 I could hear that the man expected me to become angry because he sounded so surprised when I wasn’t. I mean these things happen and they did repair the electric cable before I came home. I told him that I don’t use any electricity out there this time of year and wouldn’t mind if it would take some time to fix it.
He also told me about the telephone wires and I said they shouldn’t bother repairing it since I’m going to stop have the old phone anyway. But he insisted, I guess they can get in trouble with the telephone company if they don’t. It was so nice to not have to worry about the lightning going out through my telephone jacket. But by the look on those wires I doubt they can be repaired at all 🙂 🙂 🙂
I brought my dogs with me to work today since I didn’t want them to be scared when they were working with diggers and all sort of machines so close to the dog yard. The spent most of the day in an air-conditioned office and I know Hector loved that 🙂 Nova jumped up on the desk and looked out a window heading towards where I worked most parts of the day. She sat there while my boss worked on the computer just beside her 🙂 But we went outside during my breaks and we went to one of the forgotten gardens, the one with the hazel bushes. The day has been rather wonderful so I really didn’t have any wish of going inside when the break was over.
It’s time for a pot of tea and something to eat. I’ll go to work a bit later tomorrow because they only have a few meters left until they continue further down the road. Even though the dogs had a nice day at work I still feel it’s better for them to stay in the dog yard and dog house.
Have a great day!
