Flittig uge -- Productive week

     Først var der arbejdsdag i landsbyen igen. Vi måtte skynde os at se på hulen en sidste gang før det huleædende monster tog for sig af retterne.

Saturday we once again had a clean the village-day. We hurried to see and play in the hideout before the big, log-eating monster ate it.  


Nogle af træerne der blev fældet, var totalt fyldte med væggelav. Til sidst blev Uglemor fristet over evne og skrabede sin kagekasse fuld af væggelav. Det kom i ammoniak-bad da vi kom hjem.

Some of the felled trees were full of Xanthoria parietina MotherOwl was not able to wihtstand the temptation and filled her cookie box to the brim with it. Marsupilami luckily brought his (my) pocket knife. When we returned home it was set to steeping in ammonia next to the Oak moss.



 Søndag nød vi Dorthealiljerne og bagte brød. Uglemors mavevenlige speltbrød har birkes fra egne valmuer på toppen.

Sunday after mass we enjoyed the flowers in our garden. The  Summer snowflakes were blooming. Later on we baked bread. MotherOwl's stomach friendly bread is sprinkled with poppy seeds from our own poppies.



Mandag lugede vi i haven - det var koldt om fingrene, og vi nåede ikke så langt.

Monday afternoon we weeded the garden. it was very cold and windy. We had to stop before our fingers froze, but we made it around our new apple tree. 



Der var også tid til leg, og Trolli byggede dette seje søuhyre af gamle knogler de fandt i komposten.

Even if it's freezing cold, the Owlets will play. Trolli built this sea monster from old bones found in the compost heap. 



Uglemor fortsatte sine eksperimenter udi japansk og mavevenlig mad. En børnebageform og et spejder-grydehåndtag blev kombineret - så kunne der bages taamgoyaki.

 MotherOwl continued her Japanese cooking by trial and error. This pan is put together from a baking tin and a handle. It worked fine! I was making tamagoyaki - Japanese fried egg roll.




     Tirsdag lugede vi videre, Ugleungerne gik amok på havegangene, og Uglemor satte et lille træ op til at holde vores haveredskaber henne ved komposten.
 - - - - -
 Tuesday we continued weeding the garden. It was cold, but the Owlets freed the paths and MotherOwl put up a place to put rakes, shovels etc.




Vores bore/skruemaskine var løbet tør for strøm, men onsdag var den fuldt opladt, Trollin og Minimak ordnede lågen, medens Uglemor satte salgsstadet til æg op Vi cyklede en lille tur, men det stormede så meget at turen blev meget kort. Vi så også en viol!
 - - - - -
MotherOwl's electric drill/screwdriver was not charged, or rather run dry very fast, but Wednesday it was fully charged. Trolli mended one of the gates, while MotherOwl and the smaller Owlets put up our egg selling bee hive. 








     Den dag fandt vi også en viol i vores egen have

 We also saw a violet in the garden.



 ... så på trods af kulde, blæst, reng og slud må vi erkæære at foråret nok er kommer til Uglebo.

 ... even if it was cold and sleet was falling at one time this was a busy spring week in the Owlery.

  1. Uglemor,

    You did so much! I guess the snowflakes and the violets are an early sign of spring, though it sounds like your weather is still very cold. I would be tempted to stay inside if there was a cold wind blowing. I am not nearly as hardy as you! I think you must enjoy gardening very much. I am looking forward to seeing your garden as everything starts to grown and bloom.
