Fog embraces us.
There’s a fire in the stove this morning, not because it is especially cold, on the contrary. But everything feels damp because of the fog outside. It sort of travels through the walls and in to the cottage. But as You all know by now I love fog, as long as it comes on a weekend. On week days I don´t like it at all because I can´t see where I’m driving 🙂 🙂
The weather was perfect for a long walk but we’re having more mosquitos now than we’ve had all summer and they are quite annoying. If it hadn’t been for them we would have taken the tour in the village as well. I can see hundreds of them just by looking out the kitchen window.
The sun is slowly breaking through the fog and when it does I’ll get out and plantb those bulbs that has arrived. After that I’ll pick lots of my crab apples so I can bake an apple pie just in time for Eureka on tv. Once again I´ve been lazy and bought custard 🙂 It is so easy to make really but this one is so good that it sort of feels as a lot of work to do it oneself 🙂
I can’t remember swallows staying this long as they have this year. They still fly around the cottage even if it is the first of October! Normally they fly away already in late August or early September. But I guess they still have plenty of food here because of the mosqitos and other insects. I saw plenty of dragon flies yesterday and one katydid as well. In the evenings I can hear them sitting high up in the trees playing their songs 🙂
The sun has almost briken through the fog and I guess that means it is time to be bitten by those insects once again 🙂 But first I’ll make myself a cup of tea and perhaps I’ll take a short nap 🙂 Have a great day!
