It was a fantastic spring day yesterday and it looks as if we´re going to get much the same weather today. Now the coughing has started so my throat is anything but nice this morning. I have to rely on tea making the throat feeling better since I´m all out of ice cream :-)
The morning walk was quite wonderful. Sun shining, no wind and the sound from 14000 cranes laying like a sound carpet in the air. I do live a couple of kilometers (a couple of miles) away from the lake, so the sound isn´t disturbing in any way, but one can´t get away from it either unless ones goes inside :-)
All trees and bushes are gone now. The feeling of being in "The wind in the willows" one had before is completly gone now.
But there´s still a bit of that feeling when following the creek into the forest though.
My dogs loves to be here warm summer days, unfortunally so does ticks. So I tend to stay away from here then.
Yesterday I finally got all the way down to the creek again. I walked the other way and to my surprise the ground or road weren´t muddy at all. Well they have cleaned away all small bushes and trees away from the edges of the creek, so now the water goes in to it as it should but it does look a bity sad there now. It looks like it did when I moved here ten years ago, so now it´ll take ten more years until the feeling of “The wind in the willows” comes back again.
Now it´s time to make more tea and then I think I´ll take a nap. I do hope this is the end of this cold, I´m getting a bit tired of it now :-)
Have a great day now!
