Today I´ll start with a picture of the landscape during sunset yesterday evening. The forest hid the sunset for me so I can´t take a direct picture from my cottage.


I´m really tired today because I´ve slept really bad all night. I had the most strange dreams, not frightning though, just strange. And when my dog Hector decided to wash my ear at six am I decided it was time to go up :-)



This however is a picture from this morning, taken with my mobile phone

We didn´t get frost this night as I suspected we would get. After sunset clouds came and stayed over this area so it was a rather warm night instead. It started out with sunshine, but later clouds came again. In between fog rolled down from the mountine and then sunshine again. But at the moment it looks as if the clouds are here to stay.


We met Teodor on our morning walk today. He came wondering from the forest and followed us on our way home.



I drove to Falköping this morning and saw a flock of Trumpet swans. Unfortunally it seemes I forgot to put in the picture I took of them with my mobile phone, but I´ll show You that tomorrow instead. There were a little market in Falköping today, they sold ecological vegetables and other things with ecological grown supplies. I took a picture of that too, that I have to show You tomorrow too :-) Unfortunally the prices was rather high, so people mostly just looked at the things they sold.




The trees are getting more and more yellow leafs now.
This will be a slow weekend I feel and that suits me good! I´ll continue with reading my books and drinking my tea only to interrupt that with my and my dogs walks in the forest or by the fields. We can now win 156 million swedish kronor at the lottery, so perhaps I´ll win that, one never knows :-) :-) Unfortunally for You I wouldn´t tell You if I did :-) So You woun´t know it it´s a multi millionare that is writing this blog tomorrow :-) :-)
Have a great day now!




As You can see, nothing has happened around my pond. IU´ll wait to do something major there until after my surgery.

So you wanna be a millionaire however I am sure we would know when you won for your whole life would change.So perhaps it would be better to stay the same and not win. Enjoy the weekend.

You don't have to tell me when you win, just put a Corvette in my driveway. I'll get the hint. NIce shot of the pond. What's that growing in it? Maybe you should take your weed whacker and lower the ferns in the front so we can see the water better. Just sayin. Do you think that awesome cloud shot is mysterious? Doesn't it remind you of a "Armeggedan?" (sp) WOW. When is surgery scheduled?

Hi Woody!
I´m not so sure that I would change that much in my life, to be honest I´m quite happy with it as it is. But I would quit my job and I would by a lot of land with forests on it. I don´t want a big car or house or anything else like that. But it would be fun to come and visit You in Main though. So if You one day see a overweight sweed standing outside Your home I´ll probably have won the lottery tonight :-) :-)

Have a great day now!
Christer.

Hi Z&M!
What year would You like the Corvette to be built? I like the early ones the best :-) :-)

I don´t know what most of the things growing in the pond are for plants :-) I´ve got them from friends. But the one most to the left in the water is an Iris, Iris pseudocaria. It gets the most beautiful yeallow flowers!

The water isn´t anything to look at the moment :-) That´s why I took the picture from that angle. It is rather muddy still, but it´s getting clearer and clearer now. I have to take up the pond pump now and again because it gets clogged with mud all the time. I promise to show better pictures when the water is clearer.

I haven´t gotten any time for the surgery yet. All I know is that it´ll happen in December or february.

I wondered if anyone else would think that about the cloud :-) Either Armageddon or "Independence day" :-)
Have a great day now!
Christer.

What...you don't want a bunch of bloggers crawling out of the woodwork asking for handouts for their sick and/or dying grandmothers? LOL How about just hadnouts for those of us that post regularly? Ha Ha!

As always, beautiful pictures. I love your pond as I'm sure I missed pictures that you've posted since I've been so absent this summer.

New camera, new computer (software) and a "new" heart for my nephew, Eli,...I think I'm ready to rejoin the blogging world!

Blessings to you,
Val

Hi Valerie!
Well, maybe You regular bloggers then :-) :-)

I haven´t posted that many pictures of my pond since nothing much have happened there. But the more work I put into the pond area, the more pictures will come.

So Eli is ok then? I really hope so! He´s so young and still has to go through all that!
Welcome back to the blogging world then :-) and have a great day now!
Christer.

Corvette = 2010 with the roll bar; don't forget Zoey's Nobel Peace Prize.

Hi Z&M!
So You like these late ones? Well, Your ok anyway :-) :-) :-)

Sorry but it´s the Norwegians that decide the peace prize, I don´t have that much power to influense there I´m afraid :-) :-)

Hi Joyce!
Lets hope fro more fall weather for You to then :-) If it wasn´t for that the days gets so short here I´d probably like it a lot more too.
