Ruins in the cradle of Sweden.
My body feels old, really old today. To work in a factory beside a huge washing machine and two huge hot paint ovens during a heat wave takes its toll, still I didn’t paint today so it could have been worse to be honest. Even if we drink a lot of water and tries to get to cooler places the brains stops to function after a while 🙂 🙂 🙂 But I managed to fix the AC to the office so at the end of the day the room got so cold it almost hurt to sit in there 🙂 🙂 🙂
I don’t know why but my mind wondered backwards in time to two places all day. Both places where we used to bathe, one by the sea and one by a lake. We used to catch crabs by the ocean using clams as bate. It usually worked just fine and we got lots of them. Many of the crabs had different colors underneath, some yellow, some orange and some red as I remember it. I’ve never learned if that color actually meant something special, but we used to see how many of each kind we could get 🙂 When I was much older I did the same again and brought both crabs and sea water home to an aquarium I had. The crabs lived in it all summer and every now and again I drove down to the sea to get new sea water. I put them all back before autumn returned and all lived 🙂
The lake was close to our summer cottage and I used to fish there. Twenty years of fishing and not even once I caught anything 🙂 🙂 🙂 Friends and relatives did but never I 🙂 So one day when I was a bit older I drove there with a small hoop-net and caught some young fish with it and brought home to my aquarium. They lived there until next summer when they were returned to the lake again. That warm winter made they grow rather much so I hope they got a good start when coming home to the lake again 🙂
I’ve paid my bills and now I’ll stay away from the sun as much as possible 🙂 Not even Nova wants to go outside and play. It really is warm if that happens 🙂 All animals are sleeping here on the bottom floor where it is a bit cooler. I’ve tried to make them go down in to the cool cellar but they only stay as long as I’m there and that place is a bit too cool for me 🙂 I rather sit here by the kitchen door, every now and again a weak breeze flies through and it feels so nice 🙂
Have a great day!
