|I thought I should start with these photos of the sunrise this morning, quite beautiful.|
The sun is shining but it´s only temporary I´m afraid. Like yesterday we can expect rain and thunder passing by. Yesterday the lightning hit the ground just yards from my home. The little cottage started to shake so much that even old and death Erna noticed the thunderstorm :-) :-) :-) I´m so grateful that none of my dogs and cats are afraid of neither rifle shots nor big heavy thunder sounds.
I drove to the grocery store in Gudhem an hour ago, since I know my breaks are somewhat bad (they do break really good though, the problem is that they don´t want to loosen the grip afterwards :-) ) I started just when they were about to open up and when there is as little traffic as possible. I didn´t have to break even once on the way there and home :-) But I realized that I shouldn´t be out on the roads again until they are fixed. The wheels were really hot when I came home.
|I thought that they´d put this property out on the market already. But since it´s not until now that they have started to clean up here I´m not so sure any more.|
Too bad really, because I was going to a garden friend tomorrow. She is hosting a “Day lily” day and later on a plant exchanging day. It would have been fun going there and taking photos of the over three hundred different sorts of flowering daylilies she has now. She also sells different plants that one not always can find in other places. Well she hosts this every year so I hope I can show You it all next year instead.
The neighbour across the road still has some cattle, but nowdays it´s more of a hobby for him.
|The neighbourhood could be worse don´t You think :-)|
I phoned the closest Telia store yesterday (Telia is the company I bought this crappy computer from) to get some help with my internet connection. I have to say that we Swedes doesn´t really understand the meaning of good service. Since I bought my computer via the internet and not from their store they really didn´t want to have anything to do with me. I can´t understand why since it is Telia that owns that store! Anyway they told me to download an update on the internet connection program I already have. I told them that the update I needed couldn´t be found on that website, but she insisted. So I downloaded what I could find and now I hope for the best. If this doesn´t work a very angry Christer will travel to Skövde and speak his mind to them!
|I have had this lily in my garden for almost ten years now but it didn´t look like this for the first eight years I had it. Two years ago it changed its looks from pure white with dark red spot to this. Smells just as lovely so I don´t mind :-)|
|Gillenia stipulata, Indian physic. Can grow on much dryer places than it´s cousine G, trifoliata.|
|I dropped some seeds in the gravel beside my entrence years ago and now this one is growing there. The trouble is that I have no idea what species it is :-) :-)|
Tonight it´s Sci-Fi night at channel six and they will show the two last episodes they have bought of Battle star Galactica. I do hope they will buy the rest of all episodes too because I liked it a lot. But until then I´ll make at least one pot of tea and I´ll enjoy it on my kitchen stairs, if it doesn´t start to rain that is :-)
Have a great day now!
