It’s been a loong day today, I haven’t worked more than usual, it has just felt like that. It’s pitch black when I drive homewards and I have always liked to drive in darkness but my little Mazda is so low that most cars blind me when I meet them, that I don’t like. But I was lucky that very few cars were on the road at the same time as me today.
It’s best when I’m totally alone and can see the lights from homes far from the road, I always wonder what stories they have and most must have long stories since they usually are at least 100 years old and some even older. We are still a bit scrimp with Christmas lights here and so far only the striptease bar had put up their lights, unlike most here they had colored lightbulbs in their light chain. Can’t help but thinking it does look inviting🙂
It’s a strange thing that we have a striptease bar here at all in the middle of nowhere but just beside the highway but the owner said he had to open up here too since so many of his customers came from this area. I’ve never seen a single car at the parking lot, since everyone knows everybody here they never park there, they stop at a resting spot further down the road or in the forest nearby🙂🙂 :-)
I always keep an eye just beside the roads I’m driving on since it’s the eyes of the animals that can be seen the best in the darkness. They are like reflectors and can be seen from far away. There are surprisingly many small animals beside the roads too, today I saw lots of tiny sparkling eyes in the grass, most of them are probably mice and moles figuring out how to pass the roads without being killed but some are from weasels and foxes and lots of cats which seems to be suicidal since they tend to jump out in front of the car just in time to get hit.
The fire is burning in the stove even if it is rather warm outside. Soon I’ll make myself a pot of tea and I’ll have a big bowl with yoghurt, apple and banana slices. I was hoping that I would have my books I ordered last week by now but it seems I’ll have to wait some time more. I so would like to tell You about those Swedish/Scandinavian werewolves🙂 By the way! I think I’ve found my Yule card now🙂
