Finally my Hibiscus syriacus opened its buds and then it shows that it´s double! I didn´t want a double one! But it has at least the right color :-)
I managed to heat up my little cottage a bit to much last night. I still have 23C (73F) in the coolest place here :-) I don´t even dare to check how hot it is in my bedroom :-) I sleapt for over ten hours and that´s very unusual for me, but I still feel like taking a nap :-)
I wanted to walk by the fields this morning, the wind is strong and it feels like it blows through my head cleaning out a lot of dust :-)
This is one of the newer foxtraps they have bought. They catch foxes to see if they have gotten Sarcoptic mange (or fox mites), the foxes dies painfully if getting it. So if a fox gets in to the trap and are healthy they will soon be free again. This can easily get transferred to dogs too, but nowdays we have exelente medicine to treat that. This trap however has only cought two dogs, my neighbours small huntingdog and my Orvar :-) Orvar is actully a bit bigger than the trap, but he managed to squeeze in to it anyway :-) :-)
After that long sleep I felt like walking in the strong wind we have here today. It felt like the wind blew through my brain cleaning out a lot of dust that been there for a long time :-)Days like these I wish I lived close to the ocean. Few things are greater than to walk by the water when the winds are strong. To hear the roar from the waves and wind and to see the seagulls play way up in the air.
Well I might not have the roar from the ocean in my ears up here, but I have the roar of the winds blowing through the forest and I did see a bunch of Jackdaws playing in the winds :-)
Since very long ago I wanted to get a tattoo, but always chickened out before getting there :-) I sort of dreads the pain that comes with it :-) The funny thing is that I have a high pain threshold so it shouldn´t really bother me that much. I want some kind of dragon. I´m bourn in the year of the dragon and I learned that I am a wooden dragon according to chinese filosofy. I don´t think that seemes to be a good combination, to be a dragon and a wooden one. I mean, dragons spit fire and wood burns :-) :-) :-) Now I learned that my boss also wants a tattoo, he wants a Road runner. Well to be honest he wants a pinup, but his wife doesn´t allow that :-) :-) So now we have decided to go together. There´s a great tattoo studio rather close so now we only have to decide a day to go. But still we´re just talking about it, we have still a lot of time to chicken out :-) :-)
I think I´ll wait to start a fire in the stove today :-) But the wind i strong and the weather is cool, so maybe I´ll change my mind in an hour or two. But what ever else I´ll do today I´ll start with a pot of tea and then a small nap :-)
Have a great day now, I will!
