Same same but different.
My little home feels cold, chilled out by the nasty strong wind that has been blowing for more than 245 hours now. It isn’t that cold here to be honest but I don’t care what the thermometer says, it feels cold no matter what🙂 My cottage is protected against the wind in all directions than one and it has been blowing from that direction since it started yesterday.
I needed more deer food so instead of driving to my usual super market I drove to Falköping and that super market instead. Same company but different in most ways. This place is divided in two different stores so instead f having food, fire logs and building materials in one big store they’ve separated the food from the rest. A bit annoying since they don’t share entrance and I need to swap cart before going in to the other. This had the result that one of the carts tipped over when it got stuck in the snow and the sunflower seed bag got a big rip in it. There are some happy birds in Falköping today🙂
The deer food however isn’t sold at the super market and that’s why I need to drive to Falköping even if it means I must drive much longer. Normally I buy that in a store called Granngården (The neighbor farm) and even if the quality is very high on everything they sell it is a bit expensive. What many people don’t know is that there’s a similar store just hundred yards away and that place is usually cheaper even if they sell the exact same things. They didn’t have the reindeer food I usually buy but another brand called Wildlife food instead🙂 Smells exactly the same but is sold in 15 kg ( 33 pound) sacks instead of 25 kg ( 55 pound) sacks and the price was only 2/3’s of what the usual brand costs. I’ll keep on going there instead from now on.
This store is much smaller though so perhaps shop is a better word for it. They have most of what they sell at Granngården but most of it is placed in the big cold storage, well it’s only cold in winter to be honest because there’s no insulation in the walls. In the small shop they mostly have things for pets like cats and dogs but they also have loads of things for horses, this is after all the most horse dens county in the entire country.
It’s time to make some cocoa and a couple of sandwiches. I’ll have ciabatta bread with cheese, ham/wild hog sausage, blue cheese and sliced tomatoes. Tonight they’ll show another Star Treck movie, The first Contact on channel Six and this one I’m really looking forward too🙂
