To sow a seed is to have hope for the future.
I know it is Weednesday and usually my day off from blogging, but since I am at home and won’t do anything speacial anyway why not post a blog? We are just waiting for the next storm to arrive, this one it will hit the west coast and go straight over here. They are warning of hurricane force in the strongest gusts this time.
So I drove to the grocery store in Gudhem after our walk just in case power will go out and trees would fall and block the roads. The Norwegian weather forecats says it will be fairly calm here but one never knows. The owner of the store knows I love brownish bananas so he had saved a couple of kilos (over four pound) for me. He also tossed in a big Iceberg lettuce and said “Your cats can have this”. Well to be honest, I don’t think he ever have had a cat living close to him 🙂 🙂 🙂 But the deers will like it, that’s sure 🙂 🙂 🙂 By the way, I called the vet and described how Orvar behaves, how he walks and how he sort of hmmms when he’s laying down and when he moves while laying on the floor. So now I’m testing how Orvar will react this coming week while giving him the same medicine as hector has. He agreed with me that he most probably is stiff in his joints.
I started the spring season yesterday by starting the sowing of trees and perennials 🙂 Most trees and perennials living where winters get cold (or at least should get cold 🙂 🙂 ) needs a winter to break down those chemicals that prevents their seeds to germinate. I also, for a reason I just can’t figure out, ordered even more seeds fpor trees and bushes 🙂 🙂 If I am successful with all these seeds I better buy a huge field because I have the start of a big forest in my pots then 🙂 🙂 🙂 Thankfully we do have our plant swapping days during the summer so I might be able to get rid of most things on those days 🙂 🙂
But why sow seeds this year when we all know the end is coming 🙂 🙂 🙂 The Mayan calendar comes to an end and even if the mayans says nothing about the end of the world, the western world sort of has decided it is 🙂 🙂 🙂 BY the way, has Harold Camping come with an answer to why he failed again with his predictions about the end of the world? I do think we need an explanation from him, after all who would have guessed that he was wrong, again! 🙂 🙂 🙂 So I guess the reason for me sowing seeds is that I really have doubts about all these theories about the end 🙂 But a friend of mine has now heard about a new one, if we don’t go under this time it’s 2017 we can look forward to 🙂 🙂
By the way, I have sent a question to the Natural History Museum in Gothenburg about that track I found yesterday. Didn’t see any new this morning though, but I did find a couple Lynx foot prints.
Have a great day!
