We had a visitor here this morning.
The clouds blew in from north last night and saved us from yet another night with frost. Well it had looked better if everything had been covered by frost to be honest but one can’t get it all as they say. But just because we didn’t have frost it didn’t mean it was especially warm, there’s a weak but cold wind blowing so the fire has been burning all day in the stove.
I thought I should bake a rosemary rye bread since I had the fire on but it turned out that I don’t have enough flour, I don’t even have enough for an apple pie but it might just be enough for a few pancakes 🙂 I made some gooseberry jam a few weeks ago and it would be nice to have that to the pancakes.
We walked down to the creek again this morning, no sign of any beavers but I think I found one of the entrances to their home! It’s actually easier to see it in the photo than in real life but I wonder how they’ll disguise it when all the leafs fall of the trees. I’ve read that they usually disguise the entrances rather well.
We went to the bog this afternoon instead and I could see a man dressed in a reflective vest down the road towards the creek, he usually wears that when they hunt so I guess they are looking for deers now. Kind of stupid really tp start shooting so close to the moose hunting season since I haven’t heard a shot in the closest hunting areas. My guess is that the moose will move to areas where they can’t hear a lot of shooting going on. But so far I’ve heard nothing.
I had a visitor here this morning, a doe 🙂 I couldn’t see who it was but I could see that it wasn’t Doris the Doe. She has a long rip in her left ear and this one didn’t. I thought she looked a bit thin though, not a good sign this early in autumn.
It’s time to make a pot of tea, give the dogs their food and after that watch Grimm at channel six.
Have a great day!
