Looking for signs.
The day has been grey and dreary and we’ve had heavy drizzling (is it possible to say like that? 🙂 ) most of the time. But it has been fairly warm and it was quite nice to walk in this weather so I won’t complain. Nova woke me up several times last night kissing me in the face 🙂 I don’t know why though, I guess she just wanted company 🙂 🙂 🙂 She does that sometimes and it’s just impossible to get angry 🙂 I’ve tried to tell her that she’s a pitbull and according to rumor she should be dangerous, not loving but she just don’t care 🙂 🙂 🙂
So I took a little nap and sometimes one wakes up refreshed and full of energy but sometimes one wakes up even more tired than before and this is one of those days. Not even a pot of tea and a several cups of coffee has helped 🙂 So I have sort of been sleep walking all day and I guess it will be impossible to fall asleep tonight instead 🙂
I’ve heard a lot of cranes, geese and swans flying towards the lake but most of them have been flying in the rather low-flying clouds so I haven’t seen many. But just knowing they are there and that more are on their way sort of gives a feeling that spring actually has sprung and that we won’t get any backlashes this time. It is wishful thinking because winter can come at any time at least thruogh all of April up here.
There are some signs amongst the plant life as well even if they still are few. My red berried elderberry bushes have flower buds but those are always way to early so that the flowers freeze, the wild ones in the forest doesn’t show any yet but the ones I have in my garden originates from an area called Ussuria in the south east of Russia and they just never learn that winter is different here 🙂 The Bougainville in my kitchen window has started as well and even if it is indoors it’s still a sign of spring since it won’t flower unless there’s enough daylight.
There’s absolutely nothing of interest on tv tonight so I think I’ll watch some dvd’s instead. I’ve decided it will be a Monty Python evening this time. First I’ll start with Life of Brian, then I’ll continue with The Meaning Of Life and if I’m not to tired it will be a dvd with the best of Monty Python 🙂 I might change the last one to some episodes with Little Britain instead though they are sort of in the same spirit as Pythons 🙂
Have a great day!
