They behave like I’m trying to kill them :-)
Finally a morning with just a few clouds in the sky, the ones we had were fog clouds and naturally most of them were placed so that the sunrise was blocked by them 🙂 But I’m happy anyway 🙂 At least I got a chance to try my new telephoto lens. I never use the automatic focus function in the beginning because if the technique would start to fail I would have problems using the lens properly. I’ve always done like that no matter what it’s all about and that’s because of a friend of mine.
It started when I had bought a sailing boat and really didn’t know how to sail 🙂 A good friend of mine that was the reason why I bought the boat, I had been out sailing in his big wonderful boat when I decided that I too should have one even if I had no idea how to sail at all 🙂 He thought it was a great idea and promised to teach me how to sail. That’s a story for another day but he them told me that he refused to teach me how to use any kind of motor the boat might have because if the motor broke down I never would be able to leave harbor or to dock to a jetty. I never understood how to use the motor the entire time I had the boat 🙂 🙂 🙂
But there is a little problem taking photographs when it’s frost in the morning, that is if one insists on breathing 🙂 My glasses got foggy and so did the camera so I really couldn’t see if I got a clear photograph or not 🙂 It didn’t help that we had some fog too but I have to say that it worked quite well anyway. I like the new lens but like all telephoto lenses it does need more light than the smaller ones.
I decided to bathe my dogs after we’d been out on our walk, their fur felt sort of dry and lifeless. It is shedding time and the fur usually do feel sort of sad when that starts but it was even worse now. I never bathe them in the bathroom any longer, when I try it’s a fight for life and death 🙂 🙂 🙂 Orvar is way to big and strong so he usually win those battles 🙂 and Hector is, despite his bad legs way to fast if he gets the chance to escape 🙂 So I do it in the garden and they except that for a reason I don’t understand.
Well they still don’t like it and it does look like they believe I’m trying to kill them 🙂 The tail between their legs and they shiver as if they know they are doomed 🙂 and that starts long before I’ve even turned on the water 🙂 Orvar stood absolutely still all the time but Hector walked around like mad 🙂 I don’t know why but he hates it when I’m trying to wash the backside of the legs, he lifts them and tries to keep them so high that I can’t reach them at all. But it went fairly well until it was time to bathe Nova. At first she refused to come close at all and after that she tried to escape three times 🙂 🙂 🙂 Sune didn’t need a bath today, I bathed him the other day when he had jumped in a ditch 🙂 🙂 🙂 But he’s a dream to bathe, just stands there and seems to enjoy it.
I need to bring in more fire logs, the sun is gone again and it is a bit chilly outdoors. After that I think I’ll take a nap. I’ve already finished the book I bought yesterday, it was so good that I couldn’t put it away 🙂
Have a great day!
