This day has been better than any of the ones we had this summer :-)

This is a rare sight and almost scary in a way 🙂 Why is he trying to be cute?? Does he want anything or will he try to kill me during the night? 🙂 He is never cute!


Almost no wind, no flies, warm and sunny. This day has been better than any of the days I had during my vacation. To bad I had to work all day 🙂 🙂 🙂 The evening is just as wonderful and now the katydids play lout out in the trees and bushes. It will last one more day and then more unsteady weather will arrive again they say. But who knows, they never seem to be able to predict the weather right any day so it might continue after all 🙂


The cow pasture is filled with young bulls now, is it a bull pasture then? I do like this black one, he sort of look dangerous and he never stop looking at me when we pass by.





As soon as I brought in my paprika plants to the kitchen window they started to flower and now the first paprika can be seen 🙂 I should have had them there from the beginning! But I really thought we would get some summer this year so I kept on having them outdoors. If it wasn’t for the fact that my tomato plants are too big I would bring them indoors too.






It is evenings like this that I wish I lived close to the ocean again. I love to sit on the cliffs watching out over the ocean and feel the smells of seaweed and salt water. Listen to the seagulls and watch the big ships leave harbor on their way to the other side of the world. Sometimes I had the idea to follow one of those cargo ships all over the world, they do allow that sometimes and it isn’t especially expensive either. But then I would have been forced to leave the dog I had at the moment and that was something I wasn’t prepared to do.


We didn’t have especially nice weather yesterday, at least not after noon. It was the kind of drizzle that eats its way through the clothes within seconds.





But it is tempting at the moment, it sounds like Sune and Nova is trying to kill each other in their wild games 🙂 🙂 🙂 Hector get stressed and Orvar leaves the cottage 🙂 🙂 🙂 My biggest fear is that they will hit the aquarium so hard that it falls, Well I have an insurance after all 🙂 🙂 🙂






It is time to prepare something to eat and a pot of tea of course and after that I think I’ll hit the sack and read a book. I might have my bedroom windows open tonight 🙂


Yes he’s definitely after something 🙂


Have a great day!

  1. what ever Bertril is after I just know he will get it, how could you not give in to such a sweet face.Beautiful photos today, I enjoyed them so much, the action shots of Sune are great!! I watch ships go by my patio from all over the world and there are times I wish I could hop on board, but then i come to my senses!!!!

    • Hi Laurie!

      I know him too well 🙂 🙂 🙂 He’s anything but cute and cuddly that cat 🙂

      I was thinking about You and Your view when I started to long after the ocean 🙂 But I doubt I’ll ever move from this place, I just love to love here 🙂

      Have a great day!

  2. hi christer! bertil is so funny. i wonder what he was thinking? glad to hear you are finally getting some good weather. how big is your fish tank and what is in it/ how did your pond do this summer? we still have nice cool weather. joyce

    • Hi Joyce!

      he’s not funny, he’s scary 🙂 🙂 🙂 I have no idea what goes on in his head 🙂 Usually he’s angry but times like this 🙂 🙂 🙂

      My aquarium is only 28 gallons and only have a few small fish, I don’t know what their names are in english I’m afraid 🙂 The pond however was really beautiful this summer and the plants grew so much that I have to take most of them out from it 🙂 I wonder how things will work next summer now when it gets so much more sunlight.

      Have a great day!

  3. Bertil is too cute and he’s finally letting you see his ‘inner kitty’! I love it when they roll around like that, yeah, he may want something and after that performance I think he deserves it!

    • Hi Deanna!

      That cat only uses cute when he think he can get something 🙂 His brother is the cute and kind one that always roll around like that 🙂
      I’ll have to see if I can figure out what it is he wants 🙂

      Have a great day!

  4. Hi Christer,
    You know when they roll around like that they are being submissive. However, cats are generally submissive only when it is in their best interests. You should be worried. 🙂
    On the other hand, it could just be that Bertil feels he is not getting his full quota of attention since Sune has arrived.
    The horses and cows are looking sleek and very picturesque.
    My camera has dust on the inside either on the lens or the sensor. I can’t open the body to blow it out so I’ll just have to hope it moves away on its own. I’m not happy about that.
    Lovely day here. Mostly cloudy, windy and cool but some sun now and then.
    Enjoy your tea.

    • Hi Caryn!

      I’m pretty sure it’s just a trick when it comes from him 🙂 So I am still worried, just look at his eyes in that second photograph 🙂

      The problem with Bertil is that he gets angry when he gets some attention 🙂 So if he wants more he’d better start acting nice 🙂

      I hate it when dust gets inside the camera! My big one cleans it away by itself but I have tried to get rid of dust with an older camera, it will never work again 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Have a great day!

  5. you know that i love Bertil and he looks so cute rolling around like that but…look at his eyes in the last photo.
    I would say, be afraid, be very afraid. 🙂

  6. Sometimes I wish I could tell what my cat is thinking, but from the look in his eyes I think you really don’t want to know! He may be plotting some major plan to get you!

    Aren’t pets fun? They sure do keep us guessing!

    • Hi Jim!

      I’m pretty sure Bertil is planning something evil 🙂 There’s nothing good in him 🙂 🙂 🙂

      But I agree, it would be fun to know what our pets think 🙂

      Have a great day!

  7. Bertil är bara så otroligt mysig, dessutom är han riktigt söt – vilket han förmodligen vet om! 🙂 Visst har vi ett fantastiskt väder just nu, så kvällen har spenderats på altanen – men just nu regnar det. Vilket jag gillar, för en del växter i rabatterna har visat tendensen att torka ihjäl just nu!! 😦 😦

    • Hejsan Susie!

      Jo han är söt sådet förslår den lille, tur det eftersom jag måste gå upp varje natt för att släppa ut honom 🙂 Skall bli så skönt när han inte behöver pink så fort han vaknar 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Det blev fort ganska kallt här igår, men det är nästan ännu skönare idag 🙂

      Ingen risk att några växter torkar ihjäl här inte 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Ha det gott!

    • Hi dq!

      I wish I were but Bertil is known for attacking dogs and being generally nasty in this neighborhood 🙂 But everyone just think he’s soo cute when he follows us on our walks 🙂

      Have a great day!
