Fridays seem to be popular days for people to be away. This time, every one of my coworkers in this region was away. Â As was my boss. Â We are usually five here (my boss is in Trondheim) but everyone had some reason or another for being away. Â None of them was the swine flu, or even sickness at all, luckily. Â So, I got some inspirations for streamlining my work routines. Â Let’s see if they are still there on Monday.
The landlord called me to tell that he had cut the lawn with his motorized lawnmower. Â It has rained pretty much daily (not counting Sundays) for three weeks, but the last couple days have been fine, so I had started mowing again. The grass had grown pretty fast in the meantime, so it was pretty hard work. Â So in that regard I appreciate not having to make my way across all the lawns – the house is practically surrounded by them. Â I am sure I can find some other exercise if the weather is good. Â The grass needs to be raked away at least. Â But not today. It was almost dark when I came home, for the first time since sometime this spring. Â Around Easter I guess. Â The autumn is truly drawing close.
My wrist hurts when I type now, but it will probably recover pretty quickly. Â It is a lot more robust than it used to be even a few years ago. Â So even though I can feel I am growing older, not all things are just getting worse and worse. Â A low-fat lifestyle seems to agree with me.
