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
