Just imagine if it actually was that easy :-)
The thunder is upon us, I think. It’s hard to know because there’s no lightning, just the sound and not a drop of rain can be seen or heard. Hector is in the bathroom so I do know it’s here anyway. The thunder never really came close yesterday but we got the winds that usually occurs before and during a good thunder-storm. No rain during the thunder but a gentle rainfall that fell the entire evening and parts of the night too. Well se what happens when one talks about it, the rain is falling heavily outside at the moment. I better close the windows un the upper floor.
I fetched my new mobile phone at the post office in Gudhem this morning. It’s a Sony Xperia something that can take dust and water without problems. I opened up the new simcard I got a few days ago and everything looks fine. I never understand the new phones but I did fine the message app and started to send some messages. It turns out they have given me yet a new telephone number because no one understood the messages was from me 🙂 🙂 🙂 Well. I really don’t want a new number so I called the telephone company and asked what they were doing? It turns out I’ve gotten an extra number from the ones selling me the phone, of kindness? I still have my old numbers so this was an extra without any extra cost. So the phone company just told me to put my old simcard in the new phone and all should be as it always has been.
Just imagine how easy life could be if that had been the case 🙂 It turns out that the new phone can’t take such a big simcard, I need a smaller one 🙂 🙂 🙂 So I’ll be using my old phone for another week I guess but that also gives me time to actually learn how the new one works before I start making mistakes while using it 🙂 🙂 🙂 I can now tell You that the thunder storms is just above my cottage, the rain is pouring down, still no lightning though but the rumble makes my little cottage tremble like it was an afraid little mouse. Just as I wrote this the first lightning hit somewhere up on the mountain.
Have You ever eaten jellyfish soup or smelled the smell from it? It smells something like burnt rubber and the taste is pretty similar, nothing to wish for unless one wants to eat the smell one can find on car races 🙂 Anyway, I’ve been feeling that smell here and there when we’re out walking, very odd! It’s a smell one don’t forget and to find it here in the middle of nowhere is very odd. The latest time I smelled it was this morning out by the bog and I truly doubt anyone was out there making jellyfish soup 🙂 I also doubt that any animal actually could smell like that so I wonder what it can be.
I stopped by the lake on my way home from the grocery store (I brought my cooler with me and bought loads of ice cream 🙂 ) to see if I could find any birds or anything else worth taking photos of, I met two ornithologists, all ornithologists seems to be very social and they started to talk to me as soon as I came close. These people were the professional kind and their mobile phones twittered all the time, they got text messages from all over the country telling them what kind of rare birds other ornithologists were seeing at the moment. Anyway, these two then told me that we had two Great Egrets somewhere by the lake and that’s so unusual that it’s almost unique here. They also told me that some ornithologists had seen two Black storks, also a rarity here. unfortunately none of them could be seen while I still was there. I did however see two white swans far away and some kind of falcon that nests in a tree just beside where we stood.
The thunder is calming down again and most of the rain has stopped falling too. Still the rumbling makes my little cottage tremble but not as much as before. The temperature dropped from 29C (84,2F) to 19C (66,2F) within two minutes. I wouldn’t mind if it stayed like that for a while because the humidity outside is sky-high now and I really don’t want the heat to return until tomorrow 🙂 We’ll have warm weather this coming week but rains will come every now and again throughout the week. Perhaps I finally will be able to do something except sitting and hoping I won’t melt away if I breathe 🙂
I think it’s safe to turn on the coffee maker now and after that I think a shower is in place, it was hot before the storm and now the humidity makes it sort if sticky just by existing 🙂
Have a great day!
