The best Christmas present I’ve ever bought myself!
A new warmish storm is passing us and the wind is roaring outside and howling in my chimney. The oh so common rain is also falling but mostly as horizontal drizzle that hurts when hitting the face. This morning however was totally different. Just below freezing temperature and foggy to later turn to sunny and warm. I would have been happy with either of those two for the rest of the day.
It was a good fog, You know that thick that it was hard to guess what it really was what one saw but still thin enough to actually allow You to know where one was🙂 It was actually thick in the forest too but we were out too late so most of it vanished before it was bright enough to get some cool photos. Well one can’t have it all for some reason🙂
I went out in the dark yesterday to get some packages of fire logs and if I hadn’t known what a fox sounds like I would have believed some beings being out walking in the forest🙂 It has this strange barking-howling sound that could scare the crap out of someone who doesn’t know what it is🙂 It kept on for quite some time and didn’t care at all that I was out there too. Well mating season is on its way so I guess it felt that was more important🙂 Foxes get quite big here since they aren’t hunted, almost as high as Nova but so thin that they weigh less than Sune🙂 It would have been cool if it had started to bark while we were out by the bog walking in the fog🙂
Tiny has been coming to the food by herself for some days now so I’m afraid Lotta isn’t with us any longer. I can’t be 100% sure since I had to turn off the light chains since rain came in to the electrics somewhere and my fuses popped again. But I think no other deers than Lotta and Tiny comes every night, there are still plenty of food out there and why risk coming close to humans if it isn’t really necessary? I’ll keep my eyes open just in case I’m wrong because I thought I saw both of them on our walk the other day.
The water is flowing in high speed even though the ground is almost flat here. There’s so much water in the bog right now that if the ditches would clogg up we would have a lake within a day or so🙂
The fire is burning in the stove and I’m making a big bowl of rice porridge. I’ll also put the kettle on so I can have some tea. Channel Six will show StarTreck 5 later tonight but besides that there’s nothing seeworthy on any channel, so I might just watch a few episodes of Big Bang Theory. So far I’ve been laughing out loud every episode I’ve seen🙂 That was one of the best Christmas presents I’ve ever given myself and I’ve given myself some pretty good ones🙂
