Heat protection 101

July 26th, 2018

Not nice in any way, but it does the trick. Two days ago I tried using aluminium foil on the inside of the window...that was a great mistake, very, very hot. Then I taped the car flooring mats of textile on the outside as well. That made it better, but even if the second floor did not get that hot the window became incredibly hot, so I laid a chipboard on top ot that. But since that one was not mounted in any way it could easily blow away if the wind got strong. So now I have made this, not nice at all, protection out of some leftover wood paneling and parquet foam. I got the foam from my neighbour who has used it while painting motorcycle parts, so it is a bit dirty, but that does not matter. Now I have two layers of air, first between the glass and the paneling, and then between the paneling and the foam, so that should protect the window from becoming so hot and most important of all: The second floor won't be all that hot in the evening when we are going to bed. Apart from this, our house cope with the heat pretty good since it is an old timber house from 1850. Cold in the summer, warm in the winter. (And yes, I know that I need to paint the gable boards, but in this heat: No way!!)

And just in time, tomorrow will be the warmest day so far this year. Hoping that the rain will come as promised on Sunday, and hopefully the forecast will change back to rain on Saturday as well.

Oh what a beautiful morning

I know it won't last for long, but I must admit that I did really enjoy being outside just now

The 2018 drought

July 25th, 2018

Due to the severe drought we have had to find alternative ways of collecting food for our neighbors horses. So now we have borrowed the old chopper from the other neighbor and mounted it on the old MF 30.

First test just behind our house. A small meal for the horses, but everything counts these days

Västanå Theater and the Alma Löv Museum

July 23rd, 2018

Friday, together with Elin, Margit and Sveinung, we went to Sunne to see the theater Anna Svärd based on the book with the same name by Selma Lagerlöf. On Satyrday we then went to The Alma Löv Museum (of unexpexted art). Both events was a totally new experience for me..

Elin at the entrance of the museum

Outside, with several installations.

This one I could relate to, the Massey Fergusson-logo.

...and yes, it was hot, all the time...

Yes - and keep it this way

Lyngvig Lighthouse

June 27th, 2018

On my 45'th birthday I ran south from Søndervig on the west coast trail towards the landmark Lyngvig Lighthouse. Built back in 1906, the newest lighthouse in Denmark, all white and 38 metres tall

The day after I went there with the kids and visited the museum and walked the stairs all the way to the top.
