My first trip with the trailer. The rain is pelting down and it’s the only sound I can hear. I’m warm and comfy and Loki has found his place on the bed in the back.
I could get used to this way of life – with a few alterations… Such as more ready-made food to avoid having to do dishes in a zink the size of a large dog-bowl.
Pictures to follow.
I have often cursed when I ended up behind cars with trailers, because they slowed down the flow of traffic. A few years ago, I would have laughed, had someone suggested that I would buy a trailer…
So… I just signed the papers for a trailer just perfect in size for my needs. It’s almost 30 years old but in perfect condition and I’m going for my very first trip with it tomorrow. My brother and sister are probably shaking their heads – but so what! Pictures to follow – after I’ve learned how to back it in to a slot or turn it around in a tight spot.
This evening was the first time in over a week I really had time to take a good long, walk.
Here’s part of two families of geese that are raising their young ones together. Smart idea! They can protect the gosling from four sides, if need be.
No, I’m far from back to normal. I almost fell asleep during a workshop today.
Our tiny Sami organisation has just pulled off a major feat. We were 6 of us who started this – literally “flying by the seat of our pants” – but with the help of a number of volunteers, we got this ship to shore… and made some money at the same time.
Everyone I’ve talked to has been very happy (despite inclement weather 2 days of 3) – now I can stop waking up at 000 darkhundred with panic rising in my throat, like lava in a volcanou.
At the moment, I’m tired and worn out but sitting here with a silly smile all over my face.
I have, however, not had time to take a single picture – but to check this out:
I know – these can become thunder clouds before the day is over!
… before it’s time to get ready for work.
Am I ready for it? No, no and no.
My signature plant – a common weed!
Am spending a few days with Dad and -B-, before we have to start organizing the big event for this summer. Our Sami Association is hosting a weekend of competitions in lassoing, running, relay and a terrain-event. https://www.facebook.com/SameSmArjeplog/?fref=ts
We’re expecting about 300 participants + their families, so this should become interesting.
I was watching my neighbours’ daughter picking flowers for Mum this evening…
What can be sweeter than flowers with no stems in the hand of a small child?
We’ve had temperatures hovering between +20 to +too much C for more than a week.
This is not to be taken as a complaint – let’s just say I have closed shop due to a lack of interest…
