I’ve already done the laundry.
The thunder and rain never arrived yesterday so it was just a hot and humid day here. They don’t predict anything else than sunshine and warmth with low humidity for today so I wouldn’t be surprised if the thunder arrived today instead 🙂 They also had predicted that it would cool down tomorrow, not any more. Now they say it will be just as warm as it has been for quite some time now. Well I need to buy food and the medicine both Hector and Orvar need so I’ll drive away early tomorrow to get what I need when it comes to food and medicine. The rest of the stuff I want will just have to wait because it would take too long to get home again when it’s going to be as hot as they say.
Nova has ear problems again and this time both her ears are troublesome. I think it all will calm down again as soon as it gets less hot. It’s like when we get a cold during summer, it never seems to get better as long as it’s warm but as soon as the autumn coolness starts the cold goes away. The morning was not especially cool but we had a very thick fog, something they actually had predicted 🙂 It was so thick that the sun had problems reaching through even though it was quite high up in the sky.
We have lots of mosquitoes now after the thunderstorm but they don’t bother me especially much. Of course I don’t like the sound they make, especially not when they try to land close to the ears 🙂 But It’s only itching after the first bites and after that I don’t feel it any more. It was however a long time since I was bitten by a mosquito so I have been scratching my left foot all night and now it’s just a bloody wound there instead and it doesn’t itch but aches rather much instead 🙂 🙂 🙂
The laundry is done and is now hanging outside to dry. Swallows are flying just outside my kitchen door and they make that screaming sound that I love to hear, it sounds like they were at the amusement park riding the rollercoaster 🙂 Otherwise it’s very quiet here in the village. Not even the cows make a sound at the moment. I’ve watered what needs to be watered because even if we did get lots of rain the other day it will soon be very dry again with this weather.
Now it’s time to make some breakfast. I’m in a hard bread period at the moment. I’m not sure how common hard bread is outside Scandinavia but here we can find lots and lots of different varieties. Everything from white hard bread to really dark ones, some with fruit in them and then we have the hard thin breads. With seeds on them and without too. No matter what one would like it most likely would be found here. I like it with cheese and caviar on it (or caviar and hard-boiled eggs). By caviar I mean smoked cod roe, it’s not allowed to be called caviar down in Europe because the EU has decided that name only is allowed on the expensive varieties like Beluga or the Vendace.
Have a great day!
