I can feel a change in the air today.
I can feel a change in the air even though it’s just as warm as it has been this time of day the entire week. Perhaps it’s the wind that is slightly cooler or the humidity that’s slightly lower. Today it will stay at measly 24C (75,2F) and the winds will be fairly strong, at least so strong that the flies will stay mostly calm I hope. The weekend will be cool and we’ll even get some rain on Sunday so perhaps I should plant some plants tomorrow. I ordered two Bamboo’s and a Kiwi plant. I normally don’t buy plants since I fear it will bring the Spanish slug here, a slug that multiplies enormously since it has no natural enemies here. The slug eaters we already have here refuses to eat it since it’ so slimy. But I’ve already checked the pots and soil and no signs of slugs or slug eggs.
The Bamboo I’ve ordered is perhaps the hardiest of them all and since they were on sale I thought I might try it. If Bamboo likes a place it can spread like crazy so I’ll dig down a huge plastic pot in the ground to contain the roots. There are always other weedy plants I can plant there if it shouldn’t survive the winter 🙂 The Kiwi is a self fertile variety and will probably like it a lot in the coming green house. No I haven’t started on it yet, I still need to buy a few things before I start, besides it has been just too hot to do anything anyway 🙂
My mobile phone has started to act strange lately, sometimes it just shuts down when I use it. Sometimes I’ve only been allowed to call emergency calls and other times it has just frozen. I really need it now since I no longer have the old-time phone so when my phone and internet company called me yesterday to sell one to me I bought one 🙂 The price will be almost the same every month for two years that I’ll save by not having the old phone any longer so I’ll really not notice any change in what I pay every month. I bought a Sony something that is water and dust proof. I can bring it in to the shower if I want to but really?! why do people want to bring their phones to the shower or when they take a bath?? I want it because working with powder paint is a certain death for mobile phones. No matter how much one tries to protect it powder still finds the way inside and when it does the phone starts to act weird.
I need to keep an eye on the magpies now, smaller birds let their younglings fly around in my garden while learning how to do and the magpies tries to catch the young ones. The Wagtail is smart enough to call out loud for me when the door is open if the cats comes close but almost never when the magpies does. So every now and again when I hear magpies in the area I go outside and start clapping my hands,m I really don’t care if it is natures way 🙂 I do like magpies but I like the Wagtails even more since they usually are the first birds to arrive when spring does too. But I must admit that I sometimes like what the magpies does, like now when they brought strawberries from someones garden 🙂 🙂 🙂 I scared them and they dropped some 🙂
I need to buy a new memory card for my camera, this morning the camera told me it didn’t work and usually that means I have to clean those tiny metal parts on the card. That didn’t help this morning (well in the end, long after our walk it did say it worked again) so I brought the old camera with me. The autofocus works on the telephoto lens together with that one so tat was a nice change. But the settings are different so it took me a while to remember how to adjust it to what I like. I guess it would be better to use the computer cable to down load the photos instead of as I do know, pick out the memory card and put in to an adapter or what it is called. But I can’t remember where I put that cable 🙂 I never toss anything like that away so it should be here somewhere 🙂
I got a virus into my computer the other day, I don’t know from where but I think it was a Java download that brought it and my anti-virus system reacted directly. But it didn’t remove it because it was in a Ziploc file and couldn’t reach it it said, so how could it detect it? Anyway, I had to remove it manually and since the computer knew where it was it should be easy enough I thought. Isn’t it strange that even if the computer knows where it is it doesn’t help me to get to it?? My antivirus program also refused to let me copy the address to where it was!! So I had to write it down, a millions letters and signs it felt like and then I placed that address in the search square. No such place the computer answered?! so I started to delete the address from the end and suddenly there were loads of places I had to check through. At the same time I also got two risk programs which means they aren’t a virus but real programs but used viciously they could work like a virus anyway.
I actually did find both the virus and the two risk programs after just a few hours 🙂 🙂 🙂 and I just can’t understand why the computer didn’t do it by itself because I just had to press remove this object and gone it was. I’ve checked twice after that and they are all gone now. It’s a good thing I have another laptop just waiting to be used after all 🙂 I can’t find anything in this computer about Java so perhaps windows 8 doesn’t use it? I know all my old computers did so I never reacted when I got the message that I needed to upgrade Java. Well, the world of Internet is a great mystery and I’ll never understand it 🙂
It’s time to make that pot of tea and after that I don’t know what I’ll do. I know however that I will take a week of from writing a blog and I’ll see You all next Friday. By the way, Novas ear inflammation is back, I guess it’s the heat that makes it so resistant so she’s really happy that I once again will mess with her ear, the thing she dislikes the most in life 🙂
Have a great week!
