I think we had storm strength on the winds last night. I could hear the roaring sound from the wind in the trees but since my cottage was sheltered by the forest the wind never reached my home. I love that sound especially when I´m falling asleep late at night. But I guess it´s a totally different thing if You live in tornado areas. Then I can imagine that the sound of storms are quite worrying.

It´s still blowing quite hard outside so we went down to the creek as the road there also is sheltered by the forest. It was a cool morning and the sun was fighting its way through the clouds when we started our walk. Bertil didn´t follow us this morning, he had been out all night so he was sound asleep when I shut the door behind us.
|The sun broke through the clouds just before we were leaving the forest :-) I was hoping for that when we started our walk, because it´s a magical feeling down there when that happens in the morning.|
We had almost reached the end of the creek in the forest when the sun finally broke through the clouds for real and after that it got quite pleasant when we walked out to the open fields. Just before we´re leaving the creek there´s a spot where the ground almost always is a bit muddy and lots of tracks from the wild life can be found. It has been rather dry here lately so I could only see one track from what I think came from a Red deer. It was slightly smaller than a track from a moose and a bit more slim, moose often spread their toes when walking so it can be rather wide.

I have made a new blog at Word Press now, but that doesn´t mean that I´ll start using it now though. I like how it works there but there´s one rather big problem for me since I show a lot of photos. I´m only allowed to use 1 megabyte for other things than text. That means that I barley can put in four photos every time I post something there. I could of course make several postings in a row to get around that problem. But as it is now I do hope the problems here at Blogspot gets solved soon!
|I had not a single problem when downloading my photos today! It was done quickly too?! I do hope the downloading problem is gone now!|
I have a fire in the stove, a pot of hot tea by my side, one cat (Teodor) sleeping on the kitchen sofa on the other side of the kitchen table and Orvar sleeping just behind the chair I´m sitting in. Hector sleeps upstairs in my bed and Bertil in the sofa in the living room. It´s a pleasant morning.
Have a great day now!
