We’re having a sunny and just enough cool morning (so the flies don’t fly around and annoys me or all the farm animals) today. They say we’ll have sunshine all day today and around 22C (71,6F), rain is predicted for tomorrow and since we do need it I won’t complain too much 🙂
I could hear a few cranes in the distance when we were out walking but nothing much else. I looked out over a field just as the sun rose above it and suddenly I saw loads of resting dragonflies! They were everywhere and it was their wings that revealed them, they shone like silver in the early morning sunlight. Most of them were unfortunately too far away and Albin learned the hard way a few weeks ago that they still have electricity running in those wires even if they don’t have any cattle walking there now, so I didn’t try to get over the wires to get closer 🙂 It is a good thing I do have a good tele-photo lens 🙂
So I went to the hospital yesterday and the doctor said my x-rays didn’t show any difference to the ones taken earlier and that’s a good thing. I gave some blood for a few blood tests and if they don’t show too high amounts of metal ions in my blood I won’t have to go there for a checkup again for three years. It was fifteen years ago I got my first hip implant and seven years ago that I got my second one, time just flies away!
I stopped at the big field, Ekornavallen (link to Wikipedia in English), that is filled with old tombs on my way to the hospital and realised I should have gone there on my way home instead because I had to sort of rush through it since I had the appointment at the hospital. There are tombs from the stone age to iron age in the same field which is unusual. Lots of them were covered by grass now though so they were difficult to see and some are on the other side of a road and I didn’t go there. I don’t think there’s especially many more tombs there than we have here in my village area but they are closer together and more easy to see.
After I had come home again and been out walking with the dogs I started to shiver something nasty and felt really sick. At first I started to wonder what I might have brought home from the hospital but then I realised I really hadn’t eaten anything since 5am (and by then the clock was around 5pm 🙂 ). Well I had bought a delicious cinnamon roll and a coffee at the hospital but that was it 🙂 So I made a few sandwiches, way too big and after that I went in to some kind of food coma 🙂 🙂 I just sat in my sofa in front of the tv and couldn’t do a single thing 🙂 I even went to bead much earlier than usual so that’s why I didn’t write any post yesterday 🙂
Today I’ll do some laundry but nothing else besides that. I do need to buy a new chain to my electric chain saw but the place where I usually buy them don’t have the kind I need, they had to any other kind that brand has made but not mine and it didn’t sound as if they were interested in getting it either. So now I need to find out where I can get a new one. We have lots of places that might have it since this is a rural area with loads of stores selling all kinds of machines we might need out here 🙂
Have a great day!
