They say we had heavy thunder all around this county yesterday and I missed it🙂 I didn’t miss the rain though and yes we still need more but I’m tired of it now. I want those amazing sunny and warm autumn days we so rarely see here. But at least it isn’t raining today, cloudy yes but no rain and if I understand things right it won’t rain again until tomorrow.
The sun should have been up when we went out on our walk this morning butbthe clouds were so thick it still looked like it was night time.
We went down to the creek because I wanted to see how high the water level is now.
Old roads long forgotten leads in to either the forest or the bog. Before they thinned out the forest here this road sort of screamed out that meetings with trolls and gnomes were highly possible🙂
I’m out of good books now, well that might be a bit of a lie because I have lots of books I haven’t read yet but they are mostly crime novels and I’m not in the mood for that at the moment. So I went to an online book store yesterday and ordered three books, one I’ve read about and two in the spur of the moment. The one I wanted is a book about Swedish Folklore, about all those mythical beings we have out there. I’ve read som from it and got a bit surprised about the werewolves.
The water level is even higher than before now. This little ditch is usually never filled at all.
Now days our old beliefs usually get mixed up with mostly the American ones, like Santa. Our Santa is called the Yule Gnome and he has no reindeer even if most kids here now believes that. Our Yule Gnome had a carriage pulled by either one or two goats or a horse and that is something people of today don’t know. But then again most of our old beliefs comes from mostly Germany so they aren’t ours from the beginning either🙂 I’ll tell You more about what we used to believe (or perhaps most of us actually still do?) when I’ve read the book and closer to Yule when most of those beings is said to be out there wandering the countryside. But I sure was surprised about what I read about werewolves!
It won’t be long until it’s totally covered.
I also bought a book called A street cat called Bob and Amazing Gracie. I understand Gracie is quite famous in the USA, she’s a deaf Great Dane and she and her owners have been guests at the Oprah Winfrey show. But I’ll tell You more about those books as soon as I’ve read them. They will arrive late next week it said if they get that first book because it could still only be ordered.
They have finally removed those electric fences🙂 It’s impossible to walk there anyway since the cattle have destroyed the road. Now it’s mud instead.
I’m baking a bread right now. I never follow any recipes but do it by the hip as we say over here🙂 Today I used half the amount of water that I normally do and replaced the other half with quark instead. The bread usually turns out so much better if one does that, more tasty and juicy. Sometimes I do the same but with cottage cheese instead of quark and then it’s more like I’ve added cheese which I also do sometimes🙂 Like always I had some rosemary in it but today I also added lots of oregano. I hope it tastes as good as it smells🙂
As soon as I’ve placed it in my fire heated stove I’ll make a pot of tea, there’s nothing as tasty as the first warm slice of a newly baked bread with some strong cheese on it🙂
Have a great day!
