It was no use sleeping longer today, even if I´m hoe, since I´m going to work tomorrow again. It´ll be overtime tomorrow afternoon so it´s a good thing I always take the day of from blogging on Wednesdays. The morning was cool as most summer mornings are up here in the north. I can´t trust my thermometer this time of year, because the sun hits it already as soon as it goes up and again when it goes down. Around 530 miles (85,3 european mil) the sun doesn´t go down at all for yet some time.
We won´t get any blackberries this year, they started to flower today.
But the temperature had dropped to around 5C (41F) just before the sun started to rise above the horizon. I love these cool mornings when summer heat arrives. I always wake up early and I and my dogs takes our morning walk before those blood sucking flies starts their day. It seemes they are a bit tired in the morning You see :-) :-) But before leaving the cottage I started a fire in my stove and burned some paper garbage. It´s to hot to do it during the day now, but if I open the kitchen door at the same time in the morning, the heat flies out directly. It´s also so much easier to start a fire when it´s cool outside. Later in the day I usually gets a bvack haul in the chimney and all smoke goes in to the kitchen instead :-) :-) It´s those day I know if my fire alarm works or not :-) :-) :-)
I´m going to mowe the lawn before we go to the vet today. I could really start now if I wanted too, my closest neighbour has gone to work and the others is that far away that the sound shouldn´t bother them. But the grass will be very wet from the due another hour or so and I just love when it is this silent in the village. There are just some birds singing and some cows can also be heard. Nothing else.
When we came home again this doe stood outside my garden.
She was in no hurry walking away either. I think this is the doe we´ve met all winter so she knows my dogs rather well by now.
It´s time for another cup of tea I think, then some relaxing before the lawn mowing.
Have a great day now!
It might be that her youngling is close too. I know of one doe that placed her youngling in the garden where there were dogs too. She trusted them and probably thought the fox wouldn´t get in there. She was very right indeed :-)
