Have a nice first of Advent!
They are predicting that this storm will be as bad as the ones we had 2005 and 2007 and that’s bad. More trees fell down during a couple of days in each storm than they cut down in a year. But it won’t be that tough here where I live, the worst will go further south. Since I also live in a slope and the forest taking the most of the wind there’s almost no wind at all in my garden. The birds are singing and they have all gathered around my feeders to eat sunflower seeds and tallow balls.
But we walked our usual route this morning and even if the winds are strong it isn’t worse than gale force right now. but the gusts can be really nasty and almost made me fall a couple of times 🙂 🙂 🙂 Every now and again a gust comes down to my little cottage shaking it and it sounds as if a big lorry drives on the road beside my home 🙂 It sort of rains as well, it’s more like strong drizzle to be honest, so none of my animals likes to get out more than necessary.
This might be a first of advent worth remembering 🙂 Normally I would have some Julmust and ginger breads today but I forgot to buy anything of it 🙂 Perhaps I’ll make some cookies with those spices in them just so that I have something, I also bought a tea with Yule spices in it so it will be almost as good I think 🙂
So this will be a day with almost only indoors activities, well indoors anyway not so much activities 🙂 Nova is upstairs sleeping in my bed, Orvar and Hector on the blanket in the living room, Bertil in the sofa just next to them and Teodor in the basket by the entrance. Soon I think I’ll join Nova upstairs 🙂 But first I’ll make myself a cup of coffee and perhaps read a book.
Have a nice advent!
