Lying photographs usually gets better and definitely bigger if You click on them.

The day started out very nice even if it almost was as cold as it was yesterday. But the sun disappeared almost as quick as it went up and it hasn´t been seen since that.

Even though the sun won´t come up until 07:16 in the morning, the light starts showing around 6 am. The sun will go down at 5:17 pm.

Not long now.

Almost there.

Nova is now accepted by everyone, but she´s not especially liked to be honest. Orvar does his best to keep away from her, at least indoors outdoors works better even if he´d rather die than to play with her. Hector allows her to sleep close to him and sometimes he does play with her. But she still has this habit of trying to bite them in the legs and when that happens he too keeps a long distance to her.

The first sign of it.

There it is.

And this was the last I saw of it 🙂

Bertil is actually the one that seems to like her the most, even if he was prepared to beat her up the other day 🙂 Things will change to the better because she is determined to make them understand how great she is 🙂 and she is a great little dog! 99 times out of 100 she does as she´s told and that´s really good for a dog in her teens.

I know this is a bit blurry, but it was so amazing how that little ice crystal cought the last of the red in the lights from the sun.

I´m still at home and I´m not sure I´ll go to work tomorrow either. My throat is sour and my stomach has given up again and I get tired by walking 100 meters (yards). I think I´ve gotten every little germ there is to get here now 🙂 🙂 🙂 So I guess those Roseroot pills doesn´t work especially well after all 🙂 🙂 Well I´ll get pass this too but I am really tired of this winter and all my colds.                                                                                                           Have a great day now!

  1. Hello!
    I am sorry to know you’re cold again. Do you do not take flu vaccine in your country?
    To be honest I never took it.
    But people seem to be taking free from frequent colds, at least.
    The pictures are so beautiful today!
    Especially loved the latter, Nova and Bertil are spectacular 🙂
    The crystal I use my imagination to see how beautiful it is.
    It’s a case where the machine does not show everything, is not it?
    Hope you get well soon
    Take care

    • Hi Didi!
      I´ve had colds unusually many times this winter and since it isn´t a flu there´s nothing to do but wait for it to pass 🙂 But I have taken flu vaccine once and I got as sick as if I had gotten the flu 🙂 🙂 🙂

      I just couldn´t get the camera to focus on that crystal and I think it was because it was so small. I tried the macro but then the color got so weak that it almost didn´t show.
      I´ll get better, sooner or later 🙂

      Have a great day now!

  2. Hi Christer,
    Seems like everyone has multiple colds this winter. Hope you feel better quickly. Poor Nova. Her energy probably scares them away :-). That’s probably why humans don’t have babies late in life. They can’t keep up with them.

    • Hi Barb!
      Yes everyone seems to have it! I´ll get better sooner or later 🙂
      Yes I think it´s her energy that is the main problem. When she gets happy she gets so exited that she really is a pain 🙂 🙂 But I can tell You that Orvar did play with her this afternoon and since she didn´t bite him in the legs it worked really fine. She will be loved by them before summer 🙂

      Have a great day now!

  3. Hi Christer,
    Sorry that you are still not feeling well. You really need to try a tincture of golden seal and echinacea in Blue Skyy vodka. Or the vodka of your choice with or without the golden seal or echinacea 🙂
    Looking at the photo of Nova, I thought Wow she’s beautiful! And waaaay too intense! Are you sure there is no terrier in her background?
    The little ice crystal is lovely. I have trouble getting those shots because they never come out the way I saw it.
    It’s snowing here. After all the warm days, I was hoping there would be no more snow this year but it is still February so my hopes are in vain.
    Hope you feel better with some rest.

    • Hi Caryn!
      I really don´t like vodka but if this doesn´t give up soon I´m willing to try anything 🙂 🙂 🙂

      She is beautiful and intensive 🙂 🙂 We really don´t know anything more than border collie, but I wouldn´t be surprised if there´s terrier in her too! Her head shape looks very much like the one on Staffordshire Bullterrier and she looks for rodents in much the same way I´ve only seen terriers do.

      I tried the macro too to get that crystal shot, but then it got so light that the color disappeared. It is difficult with those small things 🙂 🙂

      They say it will snow here on Thursday and then it will get a bit warmer after that, but they have been wrong before 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Have a great day now!

  4. Trvligt att det går bra med hundarna. Och det är klart att Orvar måste hålla på sin värdighet och inte “nedlåta” sig med den nya “byrackan” (jag är nästan säker på att Orvar tycker att det är en byracka ;)))!)
    Fina soluppgångbilder du visar. Det är ju härligt nu när dagen är så lång att man hinner uträtta lite när det är ljust!
    Synd att du skall dras med så täta förkylningar. Du måste nog ta hand om dig bättre!/Anja

    • Hejsan Anja!
      Vet inte om Orvar har så mycket värdighet egentligen 🙂 🙂 Fegare hund får man leta efter 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Visst är det sjönt när ljuset återvänder! Men jag kan inte förstå varför jag fått förkylningar så ofta denna vintern. Börjar bli liite trött på det nu 🙂

      Ha det gott!

  5. Men Christer du är ju sjuk alldeles för ofta du är väldigt klen du, ställ en ambulans på gården eller sluta med kolhydraterna. Jag har inte haft en förkylning på snart 3 år, peppar, peppar, peppar.
    Vadå vinter, fnissar ännu mera vi har 1 meter högt med snö på heeeeeeeeeeeeeeela gården och idag snöar det igen, jiiiiiiiiiiiipppie.
    Men i lördags var det kul då var jag på syfestival och kramades med både Helen K & Inger K och myste på som bara den. Lämnade ett iskallt Ljusne -28 för ett varmare Älvsjö -5.
    Krya på dig nu.

    • Hejsan Lotta!
      Borde nog ha en läkare boende i en friggebod ute i trädgården 🙂 🙂 🙂 Så här illa har det aldrig varit förr vad jag minns, fast kolhydraterna borde jag nog dra ned på i vilket fall som helst 🙂

      Såg något om den syfestivalen på Face Book! Så du var med där! Kan tänka mig att ni hade det roligt då 🙂 Dessutom måste det vara skönt att komma till nästan sommartemperaturer 🙂 🙂 🙂 Tack och lov att nästan all snö försvann för ett tag sedan här 🙂

      Ha det gott min vän!

      • Suckar förtvivlat………………Facebook men Christer du är Lost in Space. Jag är med i klubben Våga Vägra Facebook, umgås med dina vänner På Riktigt.
        Kram LjusneLotta som tycker det där med läkare i trädgården vore nått för dig

      • Hejsan Lotta!
        🙂 Nä jag fattade, men Helen är ju med på FB och jag har för mig att hon skrev om det där 🙂 🙂 Eller så var det Inger. Så det var därför jag visste om att det hade hänt 🙂

        Ha det 🙂

  6. Hello Christer
    One time I had bouts of recurrent sinusitis and had already undergone various treatments, including antibiotic. I needed to improve quickly, because I had a scheduled surgery. At the time my doctor prescribed me an antibiotic and sent tip to do in a pharmacy handling such a “resistance factor” because my immune system had already precarious enough. It worked!
    Just do not know the name, just know that it was written in such a “resistance factor” and was sent to do in such farmica manipulation.
    I do not know how it works there, but in case you find there.

    • Hi Andréa!
      They are very restrictive with antibiotics here since the multi resistant bacteria becomes more and more now and that´s nothing we want to have 🙂 So they never give anything for a common cold. Som it´s just to wait for the cold to pass and hope it goes fast 🙂 🙂

      Have a great day now!

      • I am Didi 🙂 She is Deca 🙂
        Sometimes you change the names.
        I think is funny but not understand … why did this happen?
        We are similar to you?

      • Hi Didi!
        I´m so sorry!
        I don´t know why that happens but it does happen with other names too, but normally I see it before I post my comment 🙂
        I´ve changed to the right name now.
        I will look better in the future so It won´t happen again!

  7. Hi Christer,
    I am sorry you are still so sick. Winter never seems to let up: it just keeps coming day after day.

    Colds go away ion their own good time, but stay warm and try a bit of chicken soup, the universal remedy!

    • Hi Kat!
      I just don´t understand why they keep on coming this winter. I do hope that I´ve filled my quota now so I don´t get it next winter 🙂 🙂

      It´s actually a bit to warm right now, the fire in the stove have been burning since 5 am this morning 🙂 🙂

      Have a great day now!

  8. hi christer…i bet the rest of the gang is threatened by nova’s dominant character. i am sure they will all come around sooner or later. sorry to hear you are sick again! it is sleeting here right now and snow is on the way! yeah! winter is not over yet! joyce

    • Hi Joyce!
      I think one turning point came this night, but I´ll write about that tomorrow (hopefully, if my memory works. You´ll have to remind me otherwise 🙂 )

      These colds are really annoying but I must have reached my quota by now, so I´m expecting to be healthy for the rest of the year 🙂 🙂 🙂
      I´m afraid that winter will be long this year.

      Have a great day now!

  9. Hi Christer,
    sorry to know of your bad cold : last days of winter are very dangerous we are tired and our immune system is k.o……. but spring it’s not so far.
    Your photos are very good …..and your world too.
    buona serata

    • Hi Adriana!
      You are so right! The immune system is really K.O 🙂 🙂 I do hope spring comes soon but I´m afraid it will be late this year too.

      Thank You 🙂

      Have a great day now!

  10. I’m STILL trying to get over my cold. I got it from the other girls at work, we just keep passing it back and forth. I’ve been taking Mucinex DM for my cough and bronchial stuff and Alka Seltzer Cold Medicine for the common cold in general and then NyQuil, to knock me out at night and Tums for my upset tummy and IBProfen for my headache and my back ache from coughing so much and other pains and Imodium A-D for er…um, well. Anyway! I’m trying to eat oranges for Vitamin C and get plenty of sleep, Oh, and sipping diet Sprite. Other than that, I’ve done nothing for it! LOL! 🙂
    Also…I wasn’t going to mention this but since you have. Yes! The very first breed that popped in my mind when I saw Nova with her little block forehead was Staffordshire Terrier (actually I thought Pit!) but you know that I have MANY little pits that I take care of at work, and ADORE. So, if she’s got that in her breed, she’ll definitely have lots of high energy! The ones I know LOVE to play!
    I’m glad that Bertil likes her! 🙂 🙂 🙂
    Take care, Cindi

    • Hi Cindi!
      Well You´ve done a little bit more than I have against our colds 🙂 🙂 🙂
      I guess that IBProfen is the same as our Ibuprofen and that is a real stomach killer. But they do work fantastic on pain so I have a similar too 🙂

      Nova does have that same head shape as Staffordshire´s have, but smaller, I guess it´s the other breeds in her that makes it so. She also have that same energy level 🙂 I suddenly remembered the first time I met a Staff and that boy behaved just like Nova does with her toys, we had a tug match with one of his toys 🙂 🙂 He was a wonderfgul little dog 🙂 Lower than Nova though, but still heavier 🙂

      Have a great day now!

  11. Christer, luckily Grenville and I have felt fine all winter, first time in a couple of years. This year i did not get a flu shot and that may be the reason as a couple of people I know got sick after getting it, as you did before. So now we just take vitamin C and make sure we drink some orange juice and have chicken soup which I made today. Hope you feel better soon.

    • Hi Beatrice!
      This winter has been really bad when it comes to colds but I just can´t understand why. But I guess that those colds actually gives me a better immune system for the coming winters, it really has had to work hard this winter 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Those flu shots can be vicious to be honest. Some never feels a thing an d others gets as sick as if they really got that flu 🙂 I avoid them now days 🙂

      Have a great day now!

    • Hejsan Susie!
      Inte ens jag kan säga annat än att det är vackert ute nu, men vad jag önskar att det var varmare och vår nu 🙂
      Skall krya på mig, börjar tröttna på detta nu 🙂

      Ha det gott!
