Two-season country

Sweden has apparently turned into a two-season country. A month ago it was still below 10°C in the day and frost at night. Now it is 28°C in the shade and too warm to live in the sun. There is only one thing to do: Skip work during the day and bring the dog down to a local stream.

She has completely lost all respect for water now. If it looks wet (and there's a frisbee), you can just jump right in. If the bank is too high to get up, then that is a problem for later.

Once home again she goes to sleep, I surf on facebook and blog until sundown, and then; then I continue working on my grant. It's due Monday, so there are oceans of time.
