After the rain and snow the storm came last night. Most of the time my little cottage was protected against it by the forest and my neighbours cottage, bot now and again the wind took other directions making my little home shaking and squeking. Those nights it´s sure nice to have a warm fire in the stove and a good thriller to read :-) like some of Stephen Kings best books :-) I remember reading Cujo when a storm, much worse than the one last night, was passing by. The dog didn´t scare me at all, but there´s a monster in a closet that really scared me. I couldn´t sleep at all that night :-) :-)
If going up early means going up when the sun does, I was up early today. I got up at seven am, but the sun doesn´t show itself until quarter to eight. We took our walk down to the creek. I wanted to go early that way because some of the hunters wants to start hunting for any kind of deer around nine am and it´s not a good idea to wander around there then :-)
We did see a couple of deers, but not where the hunters wants them, so I think they´ll be safe for today at least :-) It´s a wonderful morning! There´s still some wind but the sun is shining and it´s fairly warm compared to the previous days. Hector is sleeping in my bed, Erna in her basket, Orvar by my feet and Bertil beside Hector in the bed. Teodor has decided it´s time to do something about the magpies :-) The smaller birds don´t care about him, on the contrary. Every time he shows up they can stay by the feeders enjoying the seeds. But when he´s gone the magpies comes and scares all small birds away. The magpies can´t reach the seeds in the feeders, they are to big for that, but they do eat anything that falls out of the feeders. So every time they come close the smaller birds fly away and some seeds then falls to the ground. They are especially fond of the pea nuts.
I´ve forgotten to show You these two pictures of Bertil the cat. I decided to only take pictures og him during one of our walks in the forest. As soon as he noticed the camera he was almost impossible to take pictures of. Finally he showed me some kindness and started to pose on this tree stump :-) Out of almost fifty taken pictures, six can be used :-) :-)
Now I´ll take a little nap I think and then it´s time for yet another walk with my dogs. The sun will go down before six pm so one better take advantage of the daylight when one has the possibilty to do so.
Have a great day now!
