There’s a thief in the family!
I woke up to a sunny world covered in frost, beautiful but a bit cold. But standing in the sun made me hesitate whether I should wear a warm jacket or a fleece sweater. I’m glad I did chose the jacket even if it got a bit too warm when walking in the sunshine. It’s better to open up a jacket in the sunshine than to be freezing when walking in the shadows 🙂
I could hear thousands of cranes shouting by the lake, some Black Grouse were still playing by the fog, geese and trumpet swans flew over me and so did the lark. It was an amazing morning and it got even better during the day. The little wind we had was fairly warm so I started thinking about the pump in the pond. I could hear how it pumped water but nothing came up to the filter.
So I decided to take it up and check why it didn’t work as it should. It was almost impossible to bring it up, not only had every single plant placed its roots in it, most roots were also packed in solid ice. So I had to use an ax to cut it loose from the frozen package 🙂 🙂 🙂 It wasn’t until I had cleaned it up that I realised that a small plastic sort of tap were missing so almost all water just went out into the pond instead of through the filter. I plugged it with a thick twig from the old plum tree but I really need to find something better. Do You know that it’s almost impossible to get rid of that smell of old aquarium one get on the hands after cleaning a pond pump 🙂
We were just about to take a walk again when my neighbor told me that Orvar and Sune had went over to him for a short visit. He said that Sune had been looking a bit tricky when he suddenly rushed forward and stole one of my neighbors working gloves 🙂 🙂 🙂 I don’t think he was angry but his girlfriend thought that it was very funny 🙂 🙂 🙂 I need to put up a higher fence, I’ve lived with one thieving dog before and it’s always awkward to return other people’s stuff 🙂 🙂 🙂
Channel six has shown all the Star Wars movies and when the latest film was shown, when Anakin Skywalker becomes Darth Vader, they showed the entire film without any sound 🙂 the only time they had sound was during commercials 🙂 🙂 🙂 So they’ll show it again tonight and this time, as an apology, they won’t have any breaks for commercials at all 🙂 So since there’s nothing else on worth watching I’ll watch it even if I already have it on dvd.
It’s time to make a pot of tea and start a fire in the stove, the night will be just as cold as the last one they say. I have almost 100 photographs, taken at our walks during the day, that I could show today but unfortunately I’ll only be able to show around 20 or so. I do hope You’ll like them.
Have a great day!
