I could hear the roar all night.
It has been storms here all winter but last night was the strongest one I think. My neighbors said their cottage trembled all night until the wind changed direction. My cottage was sheltered by his and when the wind changed the forest took over. I did hear the roar from it though and that sound only really heavy showers can make. The mixed in snow however was quiet, the only thing that was out there last night 🙂 I don’t like things that go bump in the night and I had one such bump and it turned out to be the ladder I had put up for the chimney sweeper. It missed my window by less than three centimeters (a bit more than an inch). I had totally forgotten it stood there 🙂
It has kept on blowing almost as much all day until now around 4pm. The sun has been shining all day and as long as we could find shelter from the wind it was quite nice. So we walked in the forest today and it was perhaps not the wisest of decisions, I could hear how a tree snapped with a loud bang, like a shot from a gun, when we were out there. So I’ve mostly stayed indoors but we have been in the garden several times too. I’ve cleaned up after my dogs and I’ve taken cuttings from a few bushes, not because I needed to but to just see if I will be successful with it 🙂
I watched that second movie from the Hunger Games series yesterday, Catching Fire. I almost regretted I did it because now I don’t have that really great movie to look forward to 🙂 If You like this genre this is a must. The first film was really good but this one was even better and I do look forward to the next one. I’ll buy the books as soon as the last movie is made because if the movies are this good how great aren’t the books then? I usually like the books better than the movies so I feel I have plenty to look forward to!
I’ve decided I won’t get any more tv channels now, if I will it’s better to get them in the autumn just when it is getting dark again and the dark winter will make it impossible to do anything outside. Spring and summer when it is light almost all hours of the day is no good time to watch tv, I will most likely be outdoors anyway.
It’s time to feed all the animals and to make a pot of tea for me. I haven’t checked if there’s anything worth watching on tv but I doubt that, so I’ll most likely see the last episodes of Big Bang Theory tonight. As soon as they release the latest season on dvd I’ll buy it 🙂
Have a great day!
