The wind is blowing and the rain is raining so it’s much like it has been this winter but things will change, colder weather will arrive on Friday and it looks like all weather forecast site agree on this I’m afraid. I know it was too much to hope for the winter to continue like this but hope is after all the last thing to go🙂 Today is my last day of vacation since we have a holiday here today. Can’t say I’m longing to go back to work but since the Lottery gods didn’t care to let me win the big winning off I go tomorrow morning.
We went down to the creek this morning.
I would like to take a nap but I think that might be a bad idea since I really need to go to bed early today. I would most likely be just as tired when it’s time anyway but sometimes I actually doesn’t get tired if I take a nap and that’s not a good thing since I’ll get up around 4:40 am tomorrow🙂
But instead of taking the usual path since we can’t cross the creek any longer, we walked in to the forest on the othger side of the creek.
So instead I’m boiling rice, both for me and my dogs,. I think they’ve gotten too many treats so they are a bit wobbly in their stomachs right now. Nothing really bad but wobbly enough to get some rice in their food. I’ll have the rice for dinner but I’m not sure what I’ll have with it. I forgot to pick out something from the freezer so I think it will be fish buns today.
We haven’t walked in there for years since´the thinning. Before I always had the feeling this was the place where one actually could meet a troll or gnome🙂
I tried to see if I could find some tracks from the beavers since this is the place they usually walk around. I saw one print and I think it must have been done these last few days.
I have watered all plants down in my cool cellar and it looks like most if not all still are alive. I always lose some plants during winter down there but so far it looks promising. My black walnut outside is ok too, this warm winter was probably exactly what it needed as a first winter. The magnolia I planted at the same time however did get a bit damaged that horribly cold weekend we had in the beginning of this winter.
This one has been in the water a bit too long. I wasn’t sure if it would hold my weight when I had to walk on it.
It’s time to check that rice and then to heat up those fish buns. I’ll see if I can find me something to read otherwise I’ll watch some more Big Bang Theory instead🙂
We walked back over the fields and it was hard to find places to walk on because the ground is so full of water now. So I can understand why they wanted to let the water flow again.
As You can see the wild hogs had worked through the entire field.
Have a great day!
