They know when it’s time :-)
It has been sunny all day here and a few degrees below 0C (32F). It felt much warmer while we were out on our morning walk than it did on the walk we just came home from since the wind started to blow and it is bitterly cold even if it is weak. We went down to the little lake and to my big vexation I saw that the castle owner soon will cut of the road to the lake and church ruin too! He knows he can’t do that legally so he will put up those rope gates again so anyone can go through the pasture to the ruin and lake if they dare walking surrounded by up to 100 curious cows and their calves. Thankfully they move around the cattle quite a lot so every now and again it will be possible to walk there.
I did the laundry as soon as we came home and since the fire has been burning since we woke up I also baked a bread and it turned out rather nicely even if I perhaps should have left it in the oven for a few more minutes to be honest. But it is difficult to keep the temperature right all the time when the heat source is fire from wood 🙂 I was worried that the crust would become almost black if I had left it in there any longer 🙂 I think I might be coming down with something because despite the heat in the kitchen I still feel rather cold inside.
The hunters went out rather late as usual but today their dog actually did find a deer to follow, we could see it from a short distance when we were heading homewards. I can’t say that it looked like the deer was especially stressed because the dog only followed his nose and the deer got that pretty early. So it ran in circles making the tracks hard to follow and stood and watched the dog only ten meters (much the same in yards) away from it 🙂 The dog was so occupied following the tracks that it never saw the deer at all 🙂 I later on saw them driving down with a cart towards the forest.
I’ve just been out pouring out some deer food in my garden and I don’t think it took more than five minutes until I had three deers eating there 🙂 It’s time to make something to eat for myself, my dogs and cats too now and I’ll have cocoa once again it is after all winter now 🙂 By the way, they didn’t bring home anything they had shot in that cart, they brought home a Christmas tree 🙂
Have a great day!
