A day to rest.
I don’t know how it is in the rest of the world but this day is a holiday here in Sweden. Today lots of people goes out shopping, the middle day sales has started and it is now we can find the presents we bought before yule for half the price 🙂 🙂 🙂 I’ll go later in the week because I really need a new tv now. My old one tends to make all colors turn a little green and that is a sure sign showing the tv is slowly dying 🙂
I’m not looking that much on tv to be honest but since I still have to pay the TV-license, we pay a license all over Europe to have a tv, I just as well can have one. This makes sure that we have an independent tv that feels free to keep an eye on those with power so that they don’t abuse it. It also gives us tv without ant commercial breaks and that I love. We have to pay this license as long as we have anything that can receive tv and that includes most of our computers.
We had a nasty storm during the night, the worst one so far and even though my neighbor’s house took most of the winds my little cottage got hit rather hard. It squeaked and shook all night. The wind was howling and I loved it 🙂 There’s something with winter storms that I love 🙂 But I couldn’t see a single tree that had fallen when we were out walking this morning, something that we all are a bit surprised about. The ground is so wet that at least bigger trees, like old spruces, should have had problems standing in a storm like this.
I was going to start repairing the stove today but You know how it is early morning when the kitchen is a bit chilly. One turns up the heat or starts a fire in the stove only to remember that was a bad idea 🙂 Well it will stay warm for quite some time so I still have time to do it during this vacation. The fireplace in the stove isn’t that bad so I could actually wait to do it till spring arrives. But it is better to do it now so I don’t risk to forget it later.
I think it is time for a nap, I’ll just finish the pot of tea I’ve just made. My dogs are already sleeping, Orvar here in the kitchen by my feet and the two others up in my bed. The cats are out looking at the birds by my feeders 🙂
Have a great continuing of Yule!
