No sun today, so all photos with sun is from yesterday when we took our walk down to the other end of the creek.


And so has the swedish part of the European song contest cirkus started. I hope they brought together all the bad songs in yesterday evenings heat, because I have to say it was a load of crap the most of it :-) :-) But the winner yesterday was really good, it reminded me of the group Supertramp. The second one was quite ok too.




This part of the creek is more open nowdays, so wind and sun can reach it. The ice is visible and much thinner here.




Right now they show a program on tv about a man that still uses his horses to plow his fields. He still dies his hay outside and was so happy when he could milk his cow in the morning, because porridge tastes so much better with milk than with water. He does have electricity, but most of his home looks as it must have looked around 1930:s Quite durty too to be honest :-) :-) I think few of us loves our lives as much as he does!



Soon our mailboxes will be covered in snow :-)


It´s a cloudy and somewhat cold day today. There´s comming smoke out of every chimney in the village and all is quiet and calm. My dogs are sleeping in my bedroom, Teodor behind me in my favourite chair and Bertil down in the kitchen close to the stove. I think I´ll join them all by taking a nap as soon as the tv program about that man is over and I´ve finished my cup of tea.

Have a great day now!

Good Morning Christer. I love the Eurovision Song Contest, well we watch it over here in Australia, and some people have eurovision song contest parties so you and your friends can all watch it.

Schlagerfestivalen igår var som vanligt kass;) Sitter alltid varje år och retar mig på både låtar och artisternas kläder. De år då JAG får bestämma ser jag inte alls på det. Det är nästan som om en del tävlar i den mest smaklösa outfiten, som hon Jenny Silver haha vad f:n hade människan på sig. Då är det nog skönare att göra som du, ta en liten tupplur och vakna när det kommer något bättre på TV.
Ha det gott/Monne

Tjänare Monne!
Ja vilken sörja de hade som bidrag igår :-) Fast jag gillade al Fakirs låt. Tyvärr är det ju inget som vinner ute i Europa, den måste nog höras ett par gånger för att fastna. Blir det inte bättre än det här kommer vi nog inte ens till final i år :-) :-) :-)

Ha det gott!
Christer.

Christer, there were 30 of the same porno lines in my spam bucket. They came from your blog. One of your posts is getting bombarded. Check it out.

We don't get Euro shows here in Florida. We have similar shows though. Usually the good ones are way towards the end with really good singer. Super Sunday here, go Who Dat Team! I'll be cooking standing rib for the gang. Have a good one!

Hi Z&M!
I´ve gotten them all over my blog on old ones. I will simply erase all older ones and then change so that I have to read all comments before getting them posted.

So it´s this weekend! I hope Your team wins!
have a great day now!
Christer.

Hi Joyce!
