Even colder last night.
Once again I woke up to a really cold morning, -5C (23F) and my radiators worked really hard and successfully to keep the cold outside. Well I only had two of them working at the moment so they did have to work really hard. But the sun was on its way up and as soon as it showed itself it got much warmer quickly. At least for a while and after that it didn’t get much warmer.
I had to go to the vet to get a new prescription for Orvar and Hector today. Normally I drive to the big super market and buy everything I need there but the vets office is in the other direction. So instead of buying everything in one place I had to go to several instead and that takes so much more time. I don’t have any lunch break on Fridays since I stop working at that time, so I stopped at a restaurant on my way home and bought a hamburger and fries to go. Just when I came out from there a bunch of funny dressed teenagers came and they had some kind of kick off at school and they needed a photo of a hamburger and most of them should be included in the photo. Of course they could take a photo of my newly bought one 🙂
An awful smell hit me in the face when I came home and opened the door. Bertil had peed somewhere in the cottage and it smelled disgusting. To his defence I have to tell You that I had accidentally closed the door to the bathroom so he really had no chance of getting in there. Instead he had chosen Orvar favorite blanket just by the door to pee on. Orvar doesn’t mind, that’s for sure 🙂 But I do so the blanket is now outside until I’ll wash it. I’ve tried to get rid of the smell but it has sort of stuck to the walls, it’s better now but I can still smell it.
We went down to the creek again and still no signs of any beavers but then suddenly one of them dove not far from us and the sound showed they still are there 🙂 They have been driving tractors close to the creek and lots of people have been walking around there lately so I guess they have become a bit more shy now. I still haven’t found where they live though, perhaps they still use their old home further down the creek? I know too little about beavers.
It’s time to make a pot of tea and perhaps a bowl with vanilla yoghurt, apple slices, ginger and cinnamon. After that I think I’ll read a good book.
Have a great day!
