And another day has gone by.

Today I went back to work again after staying at home for one week with the flu as a faithful companion 🙂 It’s strange how it can feel as it it was ages since I was there before but still feel as if it was yesterday at the same time. We have lots to do but we’re just waiting for the economy to plunge down since almost everything we do here in Sweden goes on export. Sooner or later the bad economy in Europe should hit us as well I’m afraid. But so far so good 🙂





Clouds covered the sky most part of the day but just before we were going home the sun broke through so our afternoon walk got really pleasant. The nights are still so cold that the ice on creeks and ponds doesn’t melt during the day. Tonight won’t be any different and on Thursday they say it will snow here again. I can’t say I’m looking forward to it but I really can’t complain, Mars is a winter month here to be honest.





Hectors leg is still bad but it doesn’t seem to bother him a lot. He runs much in the same way hyenas do and it works fine but looks funny 🙂 🙂 Nova behaved very good today, yesterday she didn’t 🙂 Twice she just didn’t care that I called for her, not because she saw a hare or any other animal, no she wanted to follow a track that she found beside the road. But after being leashed and not allowed to walk around like the others she realized it was better to come when being called today 🙂 🙂 🙂



Different reactions to the deers in the field. Nova is almost hypnotized by them and Hector couldn't care less 🙂



It is time for a pot of tea and a couple of sandwiches too. There’s a fire burning in the stove and since the sun shone all afternoon its already rather warm in my cottage. But I’ll have a fire anyway so that the Jackdaws understand there’s no use in putting sticks in my chimney 🙂

Have a great day!

  1. back to work after a week off, thats hard.Beautiful photos, I’ll take your winter over ours anyday, i’m sick of this snow, hope you don’t get a big storm now, looks nice with ground bare.

    • Hi Laurie!
      It wasn’t that hard to be honest. I wake up that time anyway, even when sick, so it was just like any other day 🙂

      Yes this has been a pleasant winter 🙂 The snow that will fall will also melt already the next day they say. I won’t complain if it does 🙂

      Have a great day!

  2. Så skönt att din influensa är borta nu, alltid gôtt när allt flyter på i normala gängor igen:)) Hoppas verkligen inte att vi får snö men som du säger mars är ju en vintermånad. Ha det gott/Monne

    • Tjänare Monne!
      Ja tack och lov att den har gett med sig nu, men jag är fortfarande väldigt trött och snorig dessutom.
      Vi får säkert snö här i lilla sibirien men den kommer ju att smälta redan nästa dag tack och lov 🙂

      Ha det gott!

  3. i bet it was tough to go back to work. we got an inch of snow here today but it will melt because it is going into the 60’s again! nova sure wants to chase the deer! joyce

    • Hi Joyce!
      It wasn’t that bad actually, I woke up just before the clock started its alarm and I worked in the neighboring factory and then I can chose my own paste.
      I doubt we’ll get much snow but like Yours it will melt away already the next day.

      She loves to look at deers but doesn’t even make an attempt to run after them. It would be a different thing if it had been hares 🙂 :- 🙂

      Have a great day!

  4. Hi Christer,
    Looks like Nova’s tail is wagging really fast while she contemplates those deer.

    Love the last photo. It looks mysteriously inviting. If it’s of the bog then I suppose it would be mysteriously inviting so that unsuspecting people will fall into it. 🙂

    You’re lucky that jackdaws are all you have to worry about in your chimneys. We have bats and raccoons and swifts and spawns of Satan. Opossums, too though I’ve not seen any, thank heaven.

    Enjoy the day.

    • Hi Caryn!
      It was 🙂 But she is happy just to look at them and didn’t even make an attempt to run after them 🙂

      I like that photograph as well but it doesn’t lead in to the bog at all 🙂

      Our bats doesn’t seem to like chimneys so I’m quite pleased that we only have to worry about Jackdaws 🙂 🙂 🙂 But they think we’ll soon have raccoons here so perhaps we better starts to prepare for those as well 🙂 🙂

      Have a great day!

      • Yeah, smoke in the chimney doesn’t stop the raccoons. You’ll need grills over the opening. Then I suppose the cranes near you will use them as nest platforms. Sometimes you can’t win with animals. 🙂

      • Thankfully cranes doesn’t nest like Storks do 🙂 They prefer the solitude out on the bog. But it would be fun if storks could move up here but they are so rare that that won’t happen in my life time. We had a nesting couple of Black stok here some years aog and they are ever rarer here. So the location was never revealed to anyone 🙂

  5. Everybody everywhere keeps waiting for the economies in their countries to tank. I see so much with higher gas prices here and the threat of bombing Iran and all the other bad news that triggers negative thoughts. I suppose the worst one is that the Euro is at its’ brink and no one yet has predicted it will come back strong. Then there was the bailout of Greece. That was suppose to make things worse here but living day to day I haven’t noticed anything but higher gas prices. I’ll have to say, that is bad enough.

    • Hi Z&M!
      Yes the worst is the Euro. They might kick out Greece from the Euro zone soon and it is perhaps what they need to do to save the Euro. Our politicians told us we were dumb not wanting it when we had our referendum, now they don’t say a thing about it 🙂 :- 🙂 Our petrol prices are painful now!

      Have a great day!

  6. Happy to hear Hector is doing a bit better.
    Gas is going up here and everything seems to cost more but we are very busy at work. Our business shows no sign of slowing down.
    In fact it’s increased.

    I wish I could take a week off sick from work.
    I am sick.
    Sick of work.

    • Hi Cindi!
      I w3ish we had Your low petrol prices 🙂 🙂 Now its painful to fill up the car over here and they say it will be even more expensive when summer arrives!

      It is the same at my job, we have lots and lots to do all the time but since we are dependent on what happens in the world no one knows for how long this will last.

      I think the rules for sick leave at Your job is sick 🙂

      Have a great day!
