It is the price I have to pay I guess.
I’ve had better nights than the latest one, I think I got four hours of sleep in total. I can take the pulsating pain that always turns up when I injure myself but the one the nerves gives as an extra salutation to stupid people with knives was more than I could take last night :-) :-) :-) It felt like someone tried to push a needle from the tip of my thumb all the way to my shoulder. The only time I could get rid of it was when I walked around here in my home. Well that’s the price I have to pay I guess.
It is a long weekend for most people now, not only for us that cuts ourselves with knives :-) May first is the workers day and a holiday for us all and since it is on a Tuesday most people who can do take a day off on Monday. I had planned to start with the green house this weekend but I think it is best not to :-) I always think it is best to spread the injuries over a longer period of time :-) :-) :-)
I knew I had to buy some things before this weekend so I thought it best to do so before the rest of the world got to the stores as well, so I drove to the big town Falköping as soon as they opened up all the stores. I needed fire logs, not many because it is rather warm here now but all the rain makes it feel so damp also indoors. I also needed some groceries and a new chain to my chain saw. I almost got it all :-) For some reason I forgot the chain but I did look for a harness for Nova.
She walks rather well in a leash but it always tangles itself around her legs. A harness should solve that problem I think. But I realized that I must have her with me so I’ll get one that fits perfect, so I’ll drive there with here again on Monday instead. The rain has just started again after a day filled with sunshine. We’re just on the borderline between hot and rainy weather and cooler and dry so there’s a risk of thunder today. I don’t mind thunder as long as the lightning doesn’t fly out of the telephone socket in to the wall on the other side of the hall way :-)
It is time to start a fire in the stove to dry this cottage of mine, then all the animals will get their food and after that I might get something myself. I’m not especially hungry but it would take my mind off the thumb for a while :-)
