I love to browse photos an hour-posts by others. Sometimes I even manage to do those myself, although I propably should just forget about that whole an hour-thing and think of them as days in pictures; I was never too exact with time :)
...but wouldn't get up until now! And oh, all autumn-y outside. (Surprise...) I did not manage to take a fabulous photo of pretty cascading leaves outside of the window, everywhere in the air.
Since we've had a flu with Dag our day rhythm has slid an hour or two; he has been sleeping somewhat late in the morning. Kind of. (And don't write "Lucky you, he still wakes up every night.)
My mixer in the city broke a long time ago (that happens a lot with raw food, processing too much at once) so I only have the one in the countryside home to use. I try and make batches of raw bars etc during the weekend for the week to come but they are so good they seldom last past Wednesday...
I know it will soon be time for some autumn gardening.
(There's this Australian tv spider guy on YouTube finding nasty spiders everywhere making me think I might have to forget about wanting to visit down under after all... Oh, the Hunter Spider, likes to hide and hunt in cars? But it's totally haaarmeless! Just a few centimetres of brown hairy nastiness down in your lap all of a sudden aaaaa! Damn.)
1pm which is 13 over here so, sticking with that.
We went for a walk with Dag. It wass actually the first time we were out walking without a pram.
A couple of weeks ago most trees were still green; it had been so warm in early September. Last week I was away and missed out on most of the colours as now the biggest part of the leaves are on the ground already...
"Feeding" the lambs. Most of them are still out on the fields.
And then I actually did some gardening. Cut dead flowers down, and so on. My mint was still green and pretty but I took it down too and put to dry (for tea). I had the mint planted in a bucket under ground but some of it had still managed to sneak out and try and take over the place. Snip snap, not anymore! Oh yeah and that's a poncho Eddi got me from Bolivia; he goes there for work. I wear it around the farm because it's kind of practical (not really for gardening though, hello fringes and dirt) and because it looks kind of odd.
I wonder what I will walk around with then when Im old and go crazy cat lady.
Dag is napping and I do some work with my rather sad looking lunch.
And then I do some un-working too when I really should not.
Or, not true. Ordering things for costumes is actually work too. I should just learn to concentrate on one thing at a time...
Start making dinner.
My dinner, done. I thought I had a pack of tofu at home but I didn't so aubergine had to do. I like it, a part of different sauces/mashes but especially oven roasted with some oil and a little salt sprinkled over. The boys not so much. Well, Dag eats it, kind of. (Half of what he eats is on the floor anyways so sometimes it's hard to tell.) So they had other stuff on their plates, which then is Eddi's domain.
Start packing to return to the city. Which mostly means: find the cats and try not to let them know what you're up to.
Time to drive home!
Radio Helsinki has this great show with old Finnish iskelmä on Sunday nights which I often drive home to.
Late night porridge!
While the rest sleep I work some more. But the internet gets me and I don't really get that much work done. But, ehrm, I learn about this guy who reunite with a gorilla he raised as his son -sniff- and about headless Victorian photography...
