Snow, wind and winter.
It would have been a nice morning if it wasn´t for the rather nasty wind we have. The thermometer just hit 0C (32F) and it snows. Not much just enough to cover the ground. But since it has been snowing like this all night there´s almost 2,5 cm(an inch) of snow on the ground. It gives me a sort of christmasy feeling when looking out the window, but walking in it and feeling the nasty wind just makes me wish that it was spring again 🙂
I have seen my first Sea-eagle this morning! I had just packed down my camera in its bag when I heard crows or ravens make lots of noise. I looked up in the sky and saw how they were chasing this big eagle all over the sky. But when I finally had gotten up my camera out of the bag they had flown away to far to get a decent photo of them. I could hear surprisingly many smaller birds sing and I could see a lorry drive by on the big road some distance away. Nowdays they look like christmas decorations with all their lamps 🙂 🙂 🙂
When we were almost back home I could hear some Trumpet swans that had decided it was time to leave the lake and head for more southern beaches. This time however I had the camera ready. Looking around in the village made me realize that I almost were the only one awake even if it wasn´t especially early in the morning. But snow and cold winds sort of invites to sleep longer on a Saturday. In fact, I will take a short nap after writing this and for the rest of the day I think I´ll watch some DVD:s. The only thing worth looking at on tv today is Eureka, the rest is garbage to be honest.
I bought new fire logs yesterday from the supermarket in Skara. I still have most of those I bought some time ago left, but they have already warned that there will be a shortage of them this winter so I might not get a chance to buy new ones later on if I use all now. The ones I bought yesterday burns much faster than the ones I already have. So if I put in more than one in the stove it can become to hot. The ones I already have here at home burns slower but doesn´t give that much heat at the same time either. Both have their qualities but they actually works best together. The new ones are great to start the fire with and the other are great to put in if one doesn´t want to check in the stove to often to see if one has to put in more logs.
Well it´s time for that nap now, so I´ll put in two of the older logs in the stove. Then I know that I don´t have to check the fire until I wake up again 🙂 Teodor is sleeping in my orange bag that I always use when I travel, Bertil sleeps on my sofa in the living room and Hector and Orvar sleeps on my bed and now I´ll join them 🙂 Have a great day now!
