It didn’t get as cold as I had feared.
It was -4C (24,8F) already at 9 pm yesterday ao I thought it would be nasty cold here this morning but clouds had drifted in and saved the night by making it warmer. Still frost though but just beneath 0C (32F). I thought I would see lots of frost covered plants but the only thing covered with frost was my car and gravel on the road. I guess it’s too dry here at the moment to make frost.
Still, it was cold enough to make my hands cold, because naturally I didn’t bring my hunters gloves. No I’m not a hunter but those gloves are perfect because they are both mittens and gloves. They are sort of gloves with a mitten cap over that can be pulled of if You understand how I mean 🙂 It won’t stay cold for long though, it’ll turn already on Tuesday they say.
I was trying to find thistle seeds on-line since a bird called Steglits (European Goldfinch) loves them and they are always nice to see by the feeders. It turns out I can get 50 kg (110 pounds) of wheat seeds for the price of 5 kg (11 pounds) thistle seeds 🙂 🙂 🙂 I do like those birds here but not at that price 🙂 I’ll just continue with either sunflower seeds or mixed seeds for my birds.
I walked into the village this morning because at least one of our hunters were out early today and I really didn’t want to disturb the same hunters as I did yesterday again, at least not so close to the first time 🙂 The sun almost showed itself and that was the last time we saw it today I guess. I had a chat with the same villager I always have when I walk that way, he had just gotten a new well. They came and drilled it the other day and it was already connected to the house. Not really drinkable yet because lots of mud was still coming up those pipes.
This is a nothing much will be done day. It isn’t inviting enough to go outside to do anything in the garden, hunters are all over the forest and it’s rather cold because of a weak but nasty wind. So I’ll mostly stay indoors drinking tea and keep the fire burning in my stove. Not bad at all 🙂
Have a great day!
