The storm is approaching.
The wind is roaring through the trees and it sounds like we’re having a big storm, but I don’t think we’re having more than gale strength yet. But every now and again a gust hits my cottage so hard that it trembles. I like sitting indoors listening to the sound but this will continue for a couple of days and I can’t say I like driving around in it. The wind tosses around my little Mazda as if it was a toy 🙂 🙂 🙂
But, thankfully, it seems that we’ll miss most of the snow 🙂 At least one good thing now when spring seems to be delayed for over two weeks. Further south though they are now warning for both strong winds and heavy snowfall. This is the time of year it’s easy to go insane when hoping for spring that never arrives 🙂 🙂 🙂
It seems I have deers in my garden all night now 🙂 New ones arrive as soon as other goes 🙂 But the oddest thing just happened. It was a doe that just had eaten and slowly was walking away. Suddenly she stopped and started shaking her head and then she suddenly had lots of foam at the mouth. This kept on for a couple of minutes. I’m glad we don’t have rabies here because I would have thought it was that 🙂 None of the other deers reacted like that so it’s nothing in the food. It could be some kind of lung worm though. But I read that our Roe deers (the species that comes to my garden) is very healthy and that predators usually kills them before they get sick. A deers life is usually never a long life.
The wind is slowly turning towards the only direction where nothing protects my little cottage. Even though it never really get cold in here when I have a fire burning in the stove it actually feels much colder when the wind comes from that direction. Thankfully my bedroom is on the other side of the cottage, behind the warm chimney 🙂
It’s time to make something to eat. I’ve bought three different kinds of sour milk (this is the promised land of sour milk 🙂 ) and I think I’ll have a sandwich or two with it. Naturally I’ll make a pot of tea as well 🙂
Have a great day!
