As always, Bertil follows us on our walks.
This isn´t a place where things happens if You know what I mean, but on Sunday mornings even less happens if possible :-) Still it´s easy to feel the difference from an ordinary day, perhaps it´s because there´s even less traffic on the big road a couple of kilometers (miles) away?
I´ve spread some ashes on the snow just to see how much faster the snow melts there. The ashes is black and keeps the heat from the sun so much better, so therefore the snow should melt rather fast there when the sun shines.
The snow is now rather thick and compact. I can walk on it with crutches without any problems. Well atleast early in the morning before the sun reaches it :-)
The morning walk was fantastic today. My dogs knows where they can run around like they want and where they have to wait for me before running away again. So there´s no need to shout after them. So we were walking around there in the sun and really cold air when I suddenlu heard the pigeons sound. I would like to say that it was the first sign of spring I noticed this year. Weather it´s forest- or ring necked pigeons I have no idea. I could see the bird in the top of a spruce, but it was still to far away to say what kind it was. On my way home I heard another one :-)
There were plenty of deers running away from us through the forest and on a distance I could see the big fox sniffing on the ground after food. Walking around with crutches makes it a bit hard to reach the camera in time and even if I had done so the camera still has to decide weather it wants to take that photo I want it to take :-) :-)
Teodor preferes to stay at home most of the time :-)
This is his basket. No one else is allowed to be close to it :-)
Now we´re back again and I´ve enjoyed a cup of tea, the second of many this day I´m afraid :-) My dogs are spread around my cottage and my cats are sleeping on the kitchen table. Yesterday I could reach my left foot and cut my toenails for the first time in months :-) Every step feels so fine :-)
Have a great day now!
