It´s grey and rainy outside today. You know that kind of drizzle that sort of eats its way through the clothes and one doesn´t notice it until it´s to late and one is far away from home :-) :-) Not even the dogs like to be outside in that, not to mention my cats. They stay inddors close to the stove today :-)
Yesterday It was the annual shaving of all hair on the hed day here. I do that once (sometimes twice, depends on how hot the summer is) a year. I´m a powder painter nowdays and that paint has a gift of getting stuck on my scalp and if the hair is long it´s hard to get rid of. Especially warm summers when I clean the paint box and sweats a lot. But I feel it might have been a bit early, so now I use a cap when going outside :-)
Now it´s so warm outside that I barly use the electric radiators to keep the cottage warm. I and three big dogs sort of keeps the temperature up any way. Well I use the fire heated stove in my kitchen too, but now is a time when it´s getting a bit difficult to use it. Have a fire in it too long and the heat in the house will be awful, to short and it will get cold in the middle of the night. But after ten years with this stove I´m kind of used to use it by now :-)
I feel a bit late today, we changed to summer time last night. I really don´t like it and way up here in the north it really doesn´t do any good. Soon we´ll have at least 18 hours of daylight here and even further north the sun won´t go down at all. Studies has shown that the heart attack rate goues up dramatically on this day and when we turn back the clock again. I usually have troubles for a long time to get used to the change, but this year I hope it´ll be easier since I´m home after surgery. I don´t have to care about the time at all :-) :-)
There are still some small rose hips left on the branch on this Rosa multiflora, or as we call it "Japanese climbing rose". They are so small and contains only one or two seeds each.
I think it´s time for yet another fire log in the stove and I think I´ll make myself a cup of tea with the new sort I bought today. After that I think I´ll force the dogs to follow me out into the garden for a while :-)
Have a great day now!
