It´s a cool, almost cold morning and I like it. This is how swedish summer mornings should be like, not like those hot we´ve had these last few weeks. I love it when we´ve gotten so much morning dew that it drips from our roofs and tree branches. When a thin layer of haze still hovers over the ground and not a sound can be heard fom us humans. Well You have to get up around five am to experience it though :-)
Angelica sylvestris, Wild angelika. Its roots once were used in medicines and You can use it to dye wool yellow. Its realtive A. archangelica is amongst other things used to spice the liqueurs Chartreuse and Benedictine. It can also be used as candy.
The weather that was supposed to hit us like Armageddon yesterday sort of dissapointed me. I did expect more if it should be like armageddon to be honest :-) :-) We did get lots of rain for a few hours, but the thunder could just be heard from a long distance. But it hit many other places much worse and cellars were flooded in many homes and buildings.
The first raspberries.
There was nothing on tv yesterday that cought my interest, so I watched the film "Planet 51". It´s a most charming and fun film about a human astronaut landin on what he thinks is an unhabitated planet far away from earth. But what he does land on is more or less a small town much like in the US around 1950:s, but all inhabitants are green :-) At the moment a new sience fiction movie is going up on their cinemas and those aliens aren´t nice at all. I think the DVD was well worth the money it costed :-)
I looked at an episode og Glee club last week, perhaps not one of my favourite programs but that gym teacher is really fun. That actor makes her so nicely evil :-) :-) So now those last hot days before my vacation started I stoob by my machine and hand painted a lot of things. It can get a bit boring in the long run so usually I make up stories in my head or think of funny Monty Phyton sketches :-) But this time I started to wonder how it would look like if we all started to sing and dance all of a sudden when we had arguments, troubles or what ever causes a song and dance number in one of those programs.
The old lady has spotted something. I nwonder what it is she thinks she sees, she is almost blind after all :-)
It was hilarious :-) :-) I could see my work friends in front of me suddenly starting to sing and dance (this is mostly people that never would do any of that in real life, not even when being drunk :-) :-) ). I can´t relly go in to details about what they sang :-) :-) But believe me, the world get so much funnier if we all could behave like we lived in a musical -) :-) I think it helps if You have a vivid imagination :-) :-)
A geranium of some kind. It has start spreading from my garden out into the fields and forest now :-)
I can see that my cup of tea is almost empty, it´s time to make a new one.
Have a great day now, I will!
Bertil ran ahead of us the last piece of our promenade and was waiting by the front door with his brother Teodor.
