It has been really warm today, 30,5C (87,1F). Not normal summer temperatures up here. If I had been at home I would most lilkly have enjoyed it tremendously, but at work it was justr awful. I´m used to it by now, but those just working during the summer suffered a lot (well I wouldn´t say I didn´t, but I atleast knows this from before :-) :-) ). But the weekend has started and it´ll be even hotter tomorrow :-)
I have a really fantasticly beautiful way to work. Most of the way the road is winding like a coiling snake. It starts with open fields where I can seeanything from flocks of cranes to deers and mooses. Lots of cattle is walking around there too and sometimes I´m lucky enough to see a new born calf. This morning I saw two foxes just by the road (and I didn´t see their corpses when I drove home wich is a good sign I think). Later on comes the forest with small glades where cottages and houses fill up the space.
You´ll have to click on this photo if You want to see what I have photographed :-) The teenager cranes still walks around on the fields.
After a while I get out on the expressway. Normally no fun roads to drive at, but I´m almost alone early in the morning. The road follows the forest for a while with more glades, a river and a small lake. Normally I can see two swans simming around at the lake when I pass. By now there must be young ones too. After that the fields and farms comes again and one strip club.
Saint John´s wort.
Every one got surprised when that club opened one day! It´s not really the place such a club opens up here. Every one knows each other very well and every one keeps their eyes open :-) One can´t go there without every one in the county knows it within ten minutes :-) :-) :-) But the girls are treated well, the owner has cleaned up the surroundings and no alcohol is served. So now we´ve sort of gotten used to the place :-) :-)
After that I turn in to a winding road again. Now I pass a stud farm and almost every day now I have seen new born foals. Unfortunatly this road has rather much traffic, many people working in the village Kvänum drives there, so I can´t take any photo´s of them. But it is wonderful to see how they tries to stand up and take their first steps :-) After that I pass farms with big fields filled with wheat, rapeseed, flax and grass. It´s so beautiful! Now the wild roses, poppy and other wild flowers are in bloom too :-)
Not far from work I pass the stables for one of swedens most famous horse trainers (for competing in trotting). Sometimes he and his empoyess starts the training early, so if I´m lucky I can see them on the tracks that follows the road. After that it´s more open fields and a beautiful church with an old grave yard. I could have worse ways to my work, couldn´t I :-)
One of my neighbours (the one I bought my cottage from). I really like how this place looks like.
Every Friday I drive to Gudhem and the grocery store there. Then I´ll drive on even more winding roads up on the mountine You often can see in my photo´s. That road is even more beautiful, but I´ll tell You about that another day. Now it´s time for some tea and then out to visit You all.
Have a great day now!
