Blood on my floor.

DSC_0005 (800x536)

We never reached -30 C (-22F ) but the temperature fell to -20 C (-4F) and that’s kind of cold too 🙂 But no wind and a rising sun made the morning walk rather nice. But I made the mistake to take my best camera together with the telephoto lens, the autofocus doesn’t work on the lens together with that camera. Normally that would be no problem but at those temperatures everything freeze 🙂 I had to hold my breath but still my glasses, the hole I see through the camera and the lcd screen froze 🙂 I had no idea what I photographed or how the photograph looked 🙂 🙂 🙂

But before we walked , actually not long after I woke up I hit my right little toe on a basket my cats sleep in, well they do sometimes anyway. It did hurt but I didn’t think much of it, not until I saw blood all over the floor. At first I thought one of the dogs had injured itself but then I realised that I had torn of the nail on my little toe 🙂 🙂 🙂 Strangely enough it doesn’t hurt that much, only when Sune steps on it which he seems to do rather often 🙂 🙂 🙂

My freezer has been filled with ice for some time now, it’s my own fault because I didn’t close the door, a couple of times actually, so the ice grew and it was time to do something about it. So since it was as cold as it was today I picked out everything in the freezer and placed it on my entrance door covered by a blanket. It seems to smell wonderful for my dogs so I can’t let them outside without keeping an eye on them, so I guess it will smell just as wonderful for foxes 🙂 It has taken all day to get that ice out of the freezer and now I’ve started it again. I better get that food in to the freezer again so I don’t star feeding any foxes. It’s quiet enough with my own pets, the birds and the deers 🙂

I have a pan on the stove with rice porridge in it. It will soon be ready to eat and after that I think I most likely will fall asleep in front of the tv 🙂 I doubt there’s anything worth watching, there seldom is. I remember when I was a kid, Fridays and Saturdays were the days that we knew would have the good programs. Today it seems they don’t have any good programs to show, ever.

  1. Kallt väder och kameror är inte en bra kombination, jag brukar förvara batteriet i BH-n för att det skall vara varmt;)) Imma och andra komplikationer infinner sig oftast också:( Fy katten för att smocka i tån så:(( Att frosta av frysen nu när det är så kallt är perfekt jag har dock fördelen med att ha en inhägnad altan så det kommer inga djur in dit:) Ha det gott/Monne

    • Tjänare Monne!

      Batterierna påverkas inte i mina kameror, jo kanske den lilla men inte de två större. Däremot fryser ju imman till is och det blir ju omöjligt att se något 🙂

      Konstigt nog gjorde det inte speciellt ont, men nu har det börjat värka en del. Dags att göra det nu när det var tidigt i morse det hände 🙂

      Ja det var lika bra att göra det nu när det ändå var så kallt. Nu är allt inplockat igen så jag kan slappna av och vet att maten finns kvar 🙂

      Ha det gott!

  2. Oh wow! THAT is cold weather. Today we are supposed to have a high the 40’s but tomorrow a bad freeze is coming in and temps are going to drop to frigid conditions. I have lots to do today but I also rented 2 DVD’s from the library. one is “Raven” a story based on some of the writings of Egar Allen Poe and also “Hildalgo” an epic adventure about a “horse” race. 😀 😀 😀
    That’s amazing that you didn’t know about your little toe! I did that once by ramming my little toe into the corner of a concrete step (I had sandals on) and I really FELT that!
    But that title for your post was good and alarming! 😀 😀 😀 it made me read your blog first thing before all else (becasue I worry you know! 🙂 )

    • Hi Cindi!

      It might be just as cold tonight again, if the clouds go away it most likely will be or even colder 🙂 I’ve brought in extra many fire logs today 🙂

      I actually found two good nature programs so I’ve been watching those now. I have a couple of dvd’s but didn’t feel like watching a long movie today.

      It didn’t hurt that much when I hit my toe, I guess the basket is to soft for that but I think loosing a nail would hurt much more though 🙂 🙂

      Have a great day!

  3. D°et är kallt även hos mig,omkr -17° nu i kväll.-30° har jag aldrig upplevt i hela mitt liv,saknar det heller inte.Frosta av frysen är helt perfekt en sådan dag.Som tur är har jag en självavfrostande frys/kyl.Jag har inte varit ute idag,bara matat fåglarna.Nu hoppas vi på lite högre temperaturer.jag tycker inte om kyla.
    Ha en fortsatt trevlig helg.

    • Hejsan Renate!

      -30 är inte ovanligt här, det brukar alltid vara en period varje vinter när det sjunker såpass mycket. Det är inte för inte jag kallar detta stället “Lilla Sibirien” 🙂

      Det kan bli like kallt inatt igen om det blir molnfritt. Kyla har jag inget emot faktiskt bara vi slipper snön så 🙂

      Ha det gott!

  4. hi christer! i am waiting for the same cold air to move in. do you not have cable tv in sweden? we get so many channels here that one could just sit and watch tv all day. and lots of people do just that! stay warm! joyce

    • Hi Joyce!

      I know You’ll like it if it gets that cold over at Yours 🙂

      Yes we have and in places we don’t we have satellite dishes instead but I don’t think they show enough good programs to get it. Not especially expensive though. Besides, blogging takes just too much time 🙂

      Have a great day!

  5. Hi Christer,
    Blood on the floor sounded like someone was having a fight and lost badly.
    Of course Sune is going to step on the one part of you that hurts most. It’s a rule. 🙂
    I agree that there is nothing worth watching on TV on Friday or Saturday. Because our local football team is in the playoffs, there will be nothing on TV on Sunday, either. Even my old stand-bys, BookTV and CSPAN History TV have had nothing interesting, just reruns. I might have to resort to DVD’s.
    The last photo is beautiful. Did you make it sepia or did low sunlight do that?
    It finally got sunny here but it’s very windy and cold. Rocky is out on the sun-warmed porch again.
    Time for some tea. Enjoy the rest of the day.

    • Hi Caryn!

      I thought that one of the animals had injured itself. Orvar usually loose a claw every now and again. It never seems to bother him though, he just cleans it and leaves it alone 🙂

      I actually found two good nature programs today but besides those there was nothing worth looking at.

      It was the low sunlight that did that, I do like that photo a lot.

      Clouds came and made me hope the night would be less cold but it seems we’ll get another just as or colder than the last one. I’ve brought more firelogs in to the cottage than I usually do just in case 🙂

      Have a great day!

  6. thats a nasty injury, ouch! I hope it heals quickly. Beautiful photos today, the reflections in the water are so lovely, I’m drawn to reflections and love to paint them, its warmer here today, minus 21 celcius, regular heat wave, lol.Keep warm and enjoy your evening,

    • Hi Laurie!

      It’s not that bad to be honest but Sune tends to step on it as often as he can 🙂

      Much warmer here this morning, only -9 🙂
      I love water and all that has to do with it, I only wish there were more around here in this area. I do miss the ocean from my old home town.

      Have a great day!

  7. You know what Christer? Every single photo today is a Blue-Ribbon prize winning photograph to me, absolutely amazing! I love how the light looks, the snow crystals are intricate and the water photos are vivid. The one with Sune standing in such an alert posture is definitely perfect. So enjoyable to look at. Thank you so much!
    now about this “blood on the floor” title of today’s post. You gave me quite a fright, thinking all kinds of awful things! Keep a close eye on your toe, okay? Infection can happen quickly! Have a nice peaceful, unbloody rest of the weekend!!

    • Hi Robin!

      Some are a bit blurry but that’s ok 🙂

      I thought that headline would get some attention 🙂 The toe is quite ok but Sune tends to step on it as often as he can 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Have a great day!

  8. Du kanske skulle skaffa dig en BH att värma batterierna kamerabatterierna med! *fniss* Men skämt å sido så tycker jag dina bilder var alldeles excellenta, så tydligen gick det alldeles utmärkt att fota!! 🙂
    Vi hade inte alls så kallt, bara -5 igår men igår kväll blev det -12 och nyss var det -8 när jag tog en runda med Santos. Vi förväntade oss dock en jäkla kyla igår, så när vi skulle ge oss av för att ta en prommis nere vid havet (det var så vackert med strålande sol och alldeles vindstilla och då måste man bara passa på) så tog jag fram en liten polotröja till Santos som jag köpte på en loppis i somras för 20:-. Den är mild orange med grön krage – kanske inte världens vackraste kombination men har man liten hund utan en massa päls så har man….. 🙂 🙂
    Trodde det skulle bli enormt besvärligt att sätta på honom den – men han kom fram och ställde sig på bakbenen så det gick lätt. Han försökte inte ens åla sig ur den, vilka våra andra alltid gjorde. Han måste vara van vid tröjor!?
    Sen åkte vi iväg och gick på två prommisar, en kort och en längre och då…..
    Fast det kan du så småningom läsa om på min blogg! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • Hejsan Susie!

      Batterierna är inget problem, de klara av minusgraderna utan att påverkas. Det är allt det andra som fryser så jag inte kan se vad det är jag fotograferar 🙂

      Idag var det mycket varmare, bara ett par minus och lite solsken ibland. Men å andra sidan började vinden blåsa och då blev det ju lite obehagligare. Fast vi gick ut på mossen en bit ändå, bara för att kolla hur frusen den var nu. En vecka till så är den som betong 🙂

      Så bra att Santos inte bråkade över tröjan, här skulle det bli problem det är ett som är säkert 🙂 Troligtvis har han ju haft det förr då.

      Ha det gott!

    • Hi JD!
      Well I need them at least when I’m walking around in my cottage 🙂

      It doesn’t hurt unless Sune walks on my toe 🙂 but it feels a bit uncomfortable when having shoes on. Tomorrow at work will be a fun day walking around in shoes all day 🙂

      Have a great day!
