Living in a winter wonderland.
The snow started to fall late yesterday evening and it still falls here over the village. I can’t say I’m happy about it but here it is and I can’t do anything about it. It will stay for a couple of days they say but rain will come before Yule so I guess it will be a snow free holiday.
I didn’t think any hunters would go out today (and I was right) so we walked down to the creek like we usually do on Saturdays. I was hoping to see some kind of tracks in the snow but it seems both humans and animals kept calm this morning 🙂 Bertil followed us like he always does and he didn’t like it at all. He complained all the time and I think he doesn’t like that place since we got followed last week. He stopped complaining as soon as we got out to the open fields.
We did finally see a deer but that’s all. We were out walking for over two hours and it was rather nice as long as we stayed out of the wind. After we had walked by the creek we continued on our walk to the village. Not a single track most of the part, not from any humans, animals or cars. The snow dampens the sounds so it felt like we were totally alone in the world, at least until the plowman came with his tractor and plowed the roads.
Later on we walked out to the bog and on our way home I saw two big doglike animals running around on the fields. They were way to far for me to see what they were but I could see that they were to big to be foxes. So finally I thought I had seen the wolf/es I thought we had in the forest! But no, it is just those dogs that keeps coming to my neighbors all the time 🙂 🙂 I met the owner at my neighbor’s home, this time she was sober! so I told her where they were and went home a bit disappointed 🙂 🙂 🙂
I’ve started to decorate my tiny and rather ugly little yule tree. Unfortunately I can’t plug in the lights because I don’t have any more electrical extension cords in the house 🙂 🙂 It is the place it will stand on but I will decorate on that table as well. Now I only have to go to the supermarket and buy yet another cord 🙂 🙂
Have a great day!
