Two days ago it was almost 30C (86F) and sunshine. Yesterday it was around 25C (77F), sunshine and a strong wind. Today we won’t get it warmer than 15C (59F). The wind is gone though but it is raining instead. I do like the sound of rain against my windows but the chilly air outside is going through the walls so I started the radiators here on the bottom floor.
Yesterday I visited a friend and we sat outside on the patio all day looking out over the lake Anten. Every now and again we could hear the whistle from an old locomotive going on the other side of the lake. Unfortunately it couldn’t be seen from where we sat but just the sound is rather nice. I got stuffed cabbage for dinner and we tried my own potatoes. They are read inside and after being boiled they had the somewhat unpleasant look of cooked tongue 🙂 They did taste quite ok though and it can be fun to have pink mashed potatoes too 🙂 As dessert I got one of the most delicious blueberry pies I’ve ever tasted.
Today didn’t start as rainy though, I could see the sun rise and before it rose the fog was really thick but it evaporated so fast that almost nothing was left when the sun finally showed itself above the trees. We walked in to the village for the first time since Albin came here and everything went well until we met the big kind brown horse who lives there. Albin likes cows but that horse was obviously dangerous and he growled?! He didn’t react at all towards the white horse though, very odd. The brown one always comes to greet us when we pass by and is so kind that even I like him so I do wonder what it was about him Albin didn’t like.
There will be very little activity here today. I must do the laundry but I’ve already done most of it so that won’t take long. Albin refuses to take walks as long as it is raining so I better be prepared to get out as soon as it stops for a while 🙂 Perhaps I’ll bake an apple pie because I now have custard at home 🙂 Perhaps I should start preparing for the arrival of autumn too, next week is normally the one we get our first night with frost (not this year though since we already have had that) so perhaps I should bring in some of the more sensitive potted plants I have outside. It will get warmer again already on Tuesday but one never knows what nature comes up with.
Have a great day!
