I can feel it has turned.
The thunderstorms came and went as they pleased yesterday. Mostly they went outside the village but every now and again the lightnings hit the ground just outside the cottage. But I think most of them just travelled between the clouds. I did however see one hit on the same place several times and I wonder what it was that got hit. It wasn’t especially close though so I won’t hear about it from any neighbors.
Hector doesn’t like thunderstorms at all but yesterday he found a place he finally could relax in. My ceiling goes almost all the way down to the floor on the upper stairs so if I place something close to it, it sort of creates a cave behind it 🙂 So he crawled in behind a sofa and a book shelf and fell asleep 🙂 Sune doesn’t care at all though, non of the rest either.
This morning is rather pleasant, sunny and chilly. There’s a kind of sharp edge in the cold air telling me that autumn isn’t too far away. I’m not sure I’ll notice the change since we really never got any summer to talk about 🙂 The first night with frost usually comes the first week in September so it isn’t that far away in the future to be honest.
I got a letter from my hip doctor the other day. Do You remember how I wrote about some people getting higher levels of metal ions in their blood due to some problems with the hip implants? Those ions will in the long run destroy both the bones and the muscles if not dealt with. So they took some blood from me just to check even though they thought I wouldn’t have any problems since I didn’t have the worst kinds of implants.
But they did find a slightly higher level of metal ions in my blood anyway. So I’ll get a new appointment next year so we can see if it continues to stay high and discuss what to do about it. They say it might be difficult to know wich one of the implants that is wrong but that’s really no problem at all since the last one, the one to the left, has a tendency to try to jump out from its position 🙂 It’s a really strange feeling when that happens 🙂 🙂 🙂
It is time to make a pot of tea and then I’ll go upstairs to see if there’s anything happening at the Olympics.
Have a great day!
