I’m glad I didn’t meet her in the morning.
Another summer day here, a bit cloudy from time to time perhaps but warm and nice. The morning however as very foggy and I have problems understanding how it could be since there’s no water on (or in) the ground and the humidity is very low. I love walking around in fog so even though we had just a short time before I had to go to work we still took a little walk. We could of course have started earlier but it’s impossible to enjoy fog when it is pitch black 🙂
Just as we were turning back homewards again I heard a moose cow calling for her calf not far away from us. It’s never a good thing to be close to a moose cow and her calf when You can’t see them 🙂 But it sounded as if they were somewhere in the other direction than we were walking. It was rather warm this morning and lots of insects were very active even that early. I don’t know if the Moose fly had stayed in my hair all day or if it was on my fleece sweater in the car just waiting, but it didn’t take seconds until I felt it crawling around on my neck. I hate those flies!
From this week and forward we now stop working early on Fridays and I have really looked forward to this 🙂 It’s not the generosity of my employer that allows us to do that, we simply work half an hour more all the other work days. So even if I stopped at the grocery store on my way home (I won 100 swedish kronor, around $15,4 US) I still was at home before 2pm. The sun was shining so we walked down to the creek to see if the beavers are still around.
They are 🙂 Even though we haven’t gotten especially much rain the water level now is even higher than before. As soon as the rains starts it will be impossible to walk down there 🙂 I saw one beaver for a second or so and I could see lots of signs of their activities too. Just as we were walking in to the forest something in the corner of my eye caught my interest, a moose cow and her TWO calves 🙂
If she stays around in this part of the forest she will be sort of immune when the hunting season starts. The group hunting here is usually allowed to shoot one moose bull or moose cow or a moose cow and one calf. This lady has two calves so they can’t really touch her 🙂 because they aren’t allowed to shoot her if she still have calves 🙂 I like moose’s but that doesn’t mean I want to meet them especially close, they are dangerous and wouldn’t hesitate to kill me and my dogs if we came to close.
It’s time to make a pot of tea and something to eat. Tonight is SciFi night at channel six again, they used to have that before but suddenly they just stopped and so did the viewers watching the channel too 🙂 It’s nice that tv-companies can learn something, like that they need viewers if they want any income from commercials 🙂
Have a great day!
