Finally its calm again.
I heard several bangs against my walls all evening and night and went out a couple of times to see what it was that hit but found nothing, it must have been the gusts that were so hard when they hit my cottage. Thankfully the forest protected this place most of the time and when the wind turned slightly everything went calm. I could hear the roar from the wind but almost nothing reached my home.
It has continued to blow all day but now finally its calm again, I don’t mind a good storm as long as it doesn’t disturb my night sleep 🙂 The birds had started singing again when I came home after work and we were out walking. I could hear the Black Woodpecker sort of screaming in the forest first one and then its partner screaming back. It’s a large woodpecker and its favorite food is the very big Carpenter ant (hästmyra in swedish). The only ant we have that can destroy houses fairly quick if it starts nesting in them. Loves to hollow out both fresh and old tree and I hate it when I see one of those giant ants close to my cottage 🙂
I’m tired and it feels like I’ll have an early night tonight. But first I’ll make a pot of tea and something to eat. Perhaps I’ll try ti finish the book The Hobbit, for some reasons I just don’t want to continue reading it. I remember liking the book last time I read it, about twentyfive years ago but no I just think it’s boring 🙂
Have a great day!
