So today I decided to deal with the bad mood situation by going outside to force myself to enjoy the nature and weather and look for beautiful things.
I forced my son (Rasmus, he is 14 next week) to step away from the computer and follow me for a walk outside. He actually only objected to it two or three times, so I think he kind of needed to get out as well.
We went for a 5 km walk through the small forest near by.
I love walking with Rasmus. He is the quiet type and when we are walking we can go for long without talking. But then suddenly he speaks and tells me what’s on his mind. Today he wondered about why a minute is 60 seconds and an hour 60 minutes ad why they were called seconds and minutes. We talked about it a while, and then we got the Iphone out and checked wikipedia.
We were looking for beautiful things and thought this tree was looking interesting against the fog and grey sky. And the hour (the sixty minutes) was well spend.
We were both in a much better moodand feeling energetic when we returned home before it got really dark and went into the garden to have a look at the chickens.
My neighbour is a farm and they have quite a lot of feral cats that they feed, as far as I know. I guess these two went looking for food somewhere else. They have been hanging around the coop this week, and I’ve seen them eat some of our leftovers that I give the chickens. It’s gonna take all my strength to not give them proper cat food….
Sewing and knitting content in the next post! I promise!
