A walk in a winter wonderland.
My cats refuses to go out and my dogs didn´t want to get in after our walk. It was -10C (15F) when I got up this morning and it isn´t much warmer now. We walked in to the forest and bof because the arctic winds are worse than nasty at the moment and the only place to stay out of it outside is in the forest.
The winds have spread the snow very unevenly so in some places it´s just an inch or so (two centimeters or so) but in other places it´s up to half a meter ( half a yard). But I would guess that we´ve gotten around 20 cm (8 inches) in average. To go out on the bog now would be suicide more or less, but even in places one could think it was fairly safe one can be surprised.
We were walking along a creek where the forest machines had sunken down rather deep when they were here some weeks ago and I walked so far from those places that I could. But suddenly my left leg sank down through half a meter (half a yard) of snow and then continued down in to slippery mud🙂 I´m glad that my other leg got stuck on the frozen ground just beside🙂🙂🙂
It took some time to get my foot up out of that muddy mess and I´m so happy that my new rubber boots is rather tight around my ankle, if not I´m pretty sure it would have stayed in the mud🙂🙂🙂 Well, now I know where I won´t walk next time anyway🙂🙂
I forgot to buy more sunflower seeds yesterday so I can´t fill the feeders more than once today and one time tomorrow. But there´s still lots of apples in my apple trees and my neighbors feeds them too so they´ll survive until Monday afternoon without problems. But I do feel sort of guilty not remembering that🙂
But I did buy a DVD yesterday, Toy story 3. I thought it just got out to the cinemas so I was a bit surprised to see it already in the supermarket. But that´s usually a sign that it´s not that good🙂 But it´s to cold to stay out any longer period of time and there´s nothing good on Tv except for Eureka today.
It´s time to make a second pot of tea and to keep the fire burning in the stove and I think I´ll take a nap just like all the animals are doing right now🙂 Have a great day now!
