High pressures during winter usually means sunny and really cold weather unless one is at the border of it as we in southern Sweden are right now. For us it means very windy and only cold weather. Cold enough together with the wind that at least I prefer to stay indoors even if the sun might be shining. Unfortunately my dogs don’t care and drags me out of the cottage anyway🙂 These high pressures during winter also tends to stay very long at the same spot but finally it looks like it will move south-east and perhaps leave us late next week. Oh how I long for warm winds and rain again :-)
Normally we walk in to the village on Sundays during hunting season since they tend to hunt in the forest on Sundays. But the wind made it impossible and I guessed that no hunter wanted to go outside today anyway, they tend to be a bit comfortable those guys🙂 So we walked down to the creek and walked upstream’s towards the place where we met the wild hogs last time. I talked loudly to my dogs all the way since I didn’t want to be surprised or to surprise those pigs again. I doubt I would be that lucky one more time🙂
Should I go down stream?
I walked upstream, despite the chance of meeting hogs too close.
It’s too bad that the snow fell before it got cold because the ground was even more soft today than it was last time we walked there. But I could walk in the foot steps the land owner had made just a few days earlier, the snow layer was thinner there and the ground had frozen at least some. The wind didn’t reach us in there and I couldn’t see a single new track from the hogs but a few older from deers. With the wind goner the walk turned out to be quite pleasant.
I think I might have more deer visitors now because all the food I had put out was gone this morning. The new rather skittish hinds have already been here, they ran away rather fast so I’m guessing that Lotta and Tiny might be close or perhaps a neighbor was outside scaring them away. Not intentionally but they are smokers and only smokes outdoors.
No hogs resting here today.
I didn’t win the lottery this week either so I’ll drive to work tomorrow as usual. I don’t know what higher power that controls who win the lottery but I can say that I think they are incompetent🙂🙂🙂 It’s time to make some tea and to give all the furry ones their food soon. Orvar has a bad stomach again so the rice is boiling on the stove.
