Sorry about Tuesday, the time just ran away so It got a bit too late for me to write anything. I really don’t have much to write about today either to be honest. The days have passed quickly and I haven’t even anything to complain about either🙂
We have actually gotten a couple of heavy showers now, can’t notice much on and in the ground though.
But the beavers are still hanging around by the creek. We went there yesterday again and the first thing I heard was a big splash when we passed an opening by the creek out on the fields. There grows lots of bushes along the creek but I think the beavers might have used some of them as food, it’s mostly willows and there’s nothing beavers like more than willows.
I’ve connected the engine heater in the car now, they have warned for strong night frost this week, especially in the region I live and since I live in a cold spot we’ll most certainly get it and it will probably be colder here than just a hundred yards away. There is however a place I pass on my way to work that is even colder than here, I always smile when I pass that house🙂
I picked some of the berries on my Aronia tree the other day. To be honest, they taste like crap before frost gets a chance to freeze them a little but since the frost didn’t show up more than that one time I thought it best to help nature on its way so to speak. They become a bit sweeter after a frost night or two but then the birds love them a lot too🙂 Lots of berries had dried up so I only got a couple of kilos (around four pound). I’ll make some jam of them later this autumn. That jam is rather nice when having pancakes. The berries are full of vitamines and anti oxidants they say and they were very popular in the old eastern Europe back in the days. I’ve always wondered why since they aren’t that tasty before they are made in to anything else. But I guess times always were tough for them back then and they used anything they could really.
It’s time for some food and a pot of tea of course. The sky seems to be clear so perhaps I’ll go outside to watch the stars for a while🙂
