Today is the last day of October. People, including me, are talking about their Christmas plans. It is blowing my mind. Anyway! Here´s Ludwig. He doesn´t really mind that time passes as long as he still fits in his favorite chair in the dining room. Which however might not be the case much longer. Stop growing, redhead!
We´ve had an amazing October weatherwise. Mild temperatures, sunny days. I love how the front rooms of our house are filled with light around this time, what with the sun being so low. Everything seems to glow.
Ponies! Scottish highland ponies, to be exact. They belong to a farm in the neighbor village and I hear they want to sell them all. This is very tempting. Look at them, they are gorgeous. One day I´ll get myself a horse, that´s for sure. Once things in the house and garden slow down. Oh yes.
Ludwig again. He has one of his impossible phases right now. Waaay to much energy, which in the grand scheme of things (aka his heart condition) is certainly a good sign, but oh my God please send help. The other day my mother very cautiously suggested that it may be time to get serious with his training. Which, uuhhm, might be a good idea. I´m totally one of the dog owners I never wanted to become. You know, the ones who are always apologizing for all the mischief their disobdient dogs are making. Yikes.
There are still things blooming in the garden. I´ve packed away the last of the garden furniture today and planted lots of spring bulbs. Everything is pretty much ready for winter, and it feels good to step away from the garden for some time. Remind me of this in January when I can´t wait to get my hands dirty again.
Let´s do this, November.
