I have problems even standing on skis.
It is as bit cold today but we have actually seen the sun for a while and that was quite nice. It was only -12,4C (9,7F) when we went out for our morning walk and the wind was so nasty that I refused to go out on the fields. So we walked down to the big creek because the road goes through the forest and the creek runs through it too. I was a bit surprised that the water lever still is rather high, after all it is cold and most water is frozen by now. Well to be honest, the ground is fairly soft in many places so I guess the water still flows down to the creek.
I couldn’t see any tracks from the beavers but since the water level still is high I guess they just don’t need to do anything outside their burrow at the moment. Besides our walks I’ve mostly been napping and watching downhill skiing and the X games. It’s amazing what they can do with a pair of skis on their feet now days 🙂 Jumping high, do a lot of turns and flips and god knows what 🙂 Most of the participants are very young so I guess they haven’t figured out that they can die, even if some actually do every year.
There’s absolutely nothing I want to watch on tv today. Channel Six shows Rambo 3 as tonight movie and I’ve seen one of those, I think it was number two and that was more than enough for me 🙂 How on earth could he be a film star after that?? Well Schwarzenegger became a star after Conan the barbarian so I guess anything can happen really 🙂 🙂 So firstly I’ll watch some episodes of Big Bang Theory and after that I’ll read The Night Eternal.
But first I’ll make a pot of coffee and a few sandwiches and I will of course keep the fire burning in the stove until late tonight, it’s getting as cold or even colder tonight as it was last night.
Have a great day!
