Rather chilly this morning.
Nova thought it was a great idea to jump up on my stomach and lick me in the face around 4:30 this morning 🙂 🙂 I told her in not so many words that even if I was happy she was happy death would see her in the eyes if she didn´t leave me alone 🙂 But it was impossible to fall asleep again so as soon as the first daylight showed I got up and looked at the thermometer.
I didn´t like what I saw to be honest. It showed 2C (35F) and I could hear winter laughing not far away 🙂 But since I had had a fire in the stove last night it still was warm and nice here in the cottage. They day will be warm though and I hope we´ll have sunshine for most of the day. We normally have cool nights here even during summer but this cold is way to early. That sort of makes me think about how the winter will turn out to be.
I did something like Caryn suggested the other day, I bought soap bubbles 🙂 One of her dogs loved to chase and catch them and since Nova has more energy in her body than a small nuclear power plant I thought it would be a great way to let her run around a lot chasing bubbles.
The old boys just looked at me as if I had become mad 🙂 🙂 🙂 They didn´t get it at all and just sat there looking at the bubbles flying around 🙂 🙂 Nova however did chase a couple and jumped high to catch them, but only for a couple of minutes. Then she found on of her plastic bottles again and wanted me to throw it away. It is fun because when the bottle is chewed flat it works very much like a frisbee!
It can glide up to 30 meters (much the same in yards) and she just loves to run after it. Many times she catches it while it still floats in the air and it is then I can see that it is lots of Border collie in her 🙂 I wish I could take a photograph of her while she jumps up in the air to get it, but things just happens to fast I´m afraid.
Today I´ll mow the lawn again but since the nights are so cold now the grass grows very slowly and that´s the only good thing about colder weather 🙂 🙂 I also start to plant those plants I got at the plant swapping day. No slugs or signs of them could be seen so now I feel safe to let them out in to the garden.
But first I´ll have a pot of tea and perhaps a sandwich. I had breakfast not long ago but I sort of feel a bit hungry anyway 🙂 Have a great day!
