Cold in many ways.
The first thing I did this morning was to start a fire in the stove. All I needed to convince myself that that was a good idea was too look out the window and to take a look at the thermometer. -2,9 C (27F) and thick fog makes one cold inside by just knowing it.
The second thing I did was to realize that I have caught a cold again! My throat is slightly sour and my nose is stuffed. I´m getting a bit bored by this now 🙂 It wasn´t that long ago I got rid of the last one I had.
I´m not mentally ready to put on winter clothes yet, so I had one thick sweater and a thick fleece jacket on me when we went out on our morning walk. It felt much colder than it really was but since there were no wind the walk turned out to be real pleasant. But I did wish that I had brought my fleece gloves with me. My fingers didn´t really work as I wanted them to when I tried to take some photographs 🙂
Thick fog gives my camera problems on focusing at what I want it to focus on 🙂 It seems it has to have some more sharp contours to work properly, but since nothing is really clear when we have fog that doesn´t really matter 🙂 But I still haven´t noticed that it has other problems when it´s cold outside. Some cameras just don´t work when it gets really cold and some uses much more power to work those days.
I have to fill the bird feeder every day now, even twice. Those little birds actually eats more now than they have done any winter so far and the winter hasn´t even begun yet. I´m not the one that trims the hedge to often and I rarely trims the lilacs where the feeder hangs, my neighbors however does, so I think I have a lot more birds here now days. They can hide for predators all over my garden so I think they have decided my place is the safest. I´m going to have to pay a fortune to keep them all fed this winter 🙂 🙂 🙂
My kitchen stove keeps my little cottage warm and cosy, so there´s no need to start the radiators for many more days. Since I´ve learned how to kook food on it and in the owen the season for my electric stove is over now. The electricity company doesn´t make lots of money on me, that´s for sure 🙂 🙂 Now it´s time to make a pot of tea and then I think I´ll find a book to read.
Have a great day now, I will!
