Rain and sunshine.
When the storm started yesterday I heard some strange knocking sounds toward the wall and windows by my entrance and after a while I remembered that I had hung out a sheet on a hanger to dry in the cold winter weather.
Yes it does dry even when it´s way below freezing point, but it does take longer time to do so. I thought it was best to bring it in since it was stiff frozen and the winds had become rather hard and there was a slight risk that it would hit one of the old windows and break it.
So I let the dogs out and walked around the cottage to fetch it (I use the kitchen entrance mostly now during winter). Just when I was about to remove the hanger I looked straight at a beautiful little doe 🙂 She had decided to sleep by my cottage out of reach for the winds and just didn´t care that I was only one meter (one yard) from her 🙂 🙂 I don´t think my dogs even noticed her at all 🙂 🙂
Just before I fell asleep last night I heard the sound of poring rain and I hoped that the little doe had found a better place to sleep. But I didn´t sleep especially well to be honest. Most of the time is didn´t notice the wind more than from the roaring sound, but every now and again the wind changed direction and hit my little cottage so it started to shake and tremble 🙂 🙂 🙂
I don´t know where they found them, but suddenly we had two new snowmobiles driving around in the village yesterday evening 🙂 🙂 🙂 I could see how much fun they had and those tracks they left helped me when we had our morning walk today. They had driven where the snow has been to deep for me to walk these last days and with the rain falling the ground got rather steady to walk on. It would probably have been even better if I had waited an hour or two more before I walked there so the colder weather we´re getting back now could have made that surface hard as concrete.
Well it´s time for me to have a pot of tea and then I think I´ll have a nap 🙂 We might get some sunshine today so if the wind calms down as they say it already has (which by the way it hasn´t) this could be a really pleasant day 🙂 Have a great continuing of the new year!
