We’re having such a wonderful day, it is just enough warm, around 20C (68F), a weak luke warm wind and lots of sunshine even if it at the moment is rather cloudy. Birds are singing and Troll spindles/ dragon flies can already be seen close to the ditches that still has water in them. The occasional wasp queen tries to get inside my cottage and a few have lost their lives just because they can’t take no for an answer. It feels like summer but it’s too early to call it that so we call this time of year presummer, not pre summer because pre summer can be any time of the year as long as it is before summer 🙂
It’s a holiday here in Sweden today but I’ve been at work anyway, well my department has because we preferred to stay at home tomorrow instead. Every time we have loads to do and that’s usually this time of year and we can’t take the day off the day after a holiday we get the chance to choose if we want to stay home on the actual holiday or the day after and get a long weekend instead. Surprisingly many, the rest of the factory, wanted to work tomorrow instead.
I brought the dogs with me to work because my neighbors would be at home and most likely they wanted to sleep a bit longer today and that’s hard if one dog (Sunes) starts barking as soon as he thinks he can see a neighbor moving 🙂 We went out on my break to one of the two forgotten gardens that belong to the property and the first thing I did was to twist my right ankle and knee so now they both ache rather badly. It does help a lot to rest though because instead of taking a walk as soon as we came home after work we instead took a nap and I could walk rather problemless almost the entire walk, so I’m hoping this will be gone by tomorrow.
It is time to feed the dogs and after that myself as well. I’ll have the kitchen door open until I go to bed I think even if that means I’ll have to fight several wasp queens and to get my kitchen filled with dandelion seeds 🙂 Perhaps I should collect all the seeds and press out the oil from them, I’ve heard that dandelion seed oil is great to have in food 🙂
