There´s already a fire in the stove.
It´s funny really, but I can tell if it is a cold morning outside if it is rather warm inside the cottage when I wake up. If it´s frost outside the heat from yesterday firing in the stove will stay better than if it is a couple of degrees warmer than frost all night. I´m not sure why it is like that, but I´m almost never wrong about that.
So I wasn´t surprised when it showed that it was only -7,9C (18F) when I got up this morning around 6:30 am. There was no wind we we got out and the sun had started to slowly show that it was about to rise above the horizon. Orvar and Hector was as eager to search all tracks as they always are but to our surprise it wasn´t Bertil that followed us today on our walk, it was Teodor instead.
Teodor isn´t a cat that likes cold weather at all and I don´t think he likes to walk around much either but this morning he looked as if he really enjoyed it. Well to be honest, he did try to climb up my back to sit on my shoulders several times 🙂 But the cat is rather heavy so I had to force him down to the ground again.
I´m always looking forward to SciFi night at channel six on fridays, but this time they had put in a program called Spartacus, a series of programs about a gladiator. I can´t see any connection at all between science fiction and gladiators, can You? The next scifi program, Star gate Universe, came so late that I decided to go to bed and read in the two books I got from Joyce at Octoberfarm.
One book is called “The Walkers Companion” and shows different kinds of nature and animals You can meet when walking on the american continent. I love these kinds of books! It´s fun to see how different, yet similar our two worlds is. With this book I´ll also learn what many of Your animals is called so I know what You write about in Your blogs!
The other book is called “Skywatching” and I haven´t had much time looking through that one yet. But amongst other things it shows the different start constellations and their names. Those of You that has followed me some time knows that I would love to be able to travel in space to meet civilizations that lives out there (I´m sure that there must be others out there You see), so this book is something I will read and re-read many times:-) I´ll show You more photos from both books tomorrow. Many thanks to You Joyce!
It seems the temperature has some troubles rising since a huge cloud is blocking the sun. So I´ll keep on putting logs in the fire and make pots of tea to keep me warm 🙂
Have a great day now!
