A nap should never continue for longer than half an hour.
I woke up around three this morning and this time I can’t blame any of the dogs 🙂 I let the dogs outside and the night was rather warm and calm, the clouds had come and stopped the eventual frost from reigning the land. But I had big problems going back to sleep after that. I did eventually but I don’t think I slept for long. It was still dark when I got up the second time and by then the rain had come.
Even long after the sun must have risen oven the world it still was very dark outside. The rain had changed to a gentle drizzle and we all enjoyed the walk. I talked a bit loud so that no deers or other animals would stay to close to us, I don’t want to go out looking for Sune in weather like that if he would get the urge to follow them. But he did actually listen very good when we did meet a deer on the road one morning. He started to follow it but stopped when I told him to 🙂 I do hope he will continue like that.
Nova is a completely different dog when it comes to that though 🙂 But it seems to work great with her leashed to Orvar, he has already stopped her from running after animals and he doesn’t seem to dislike his job either especially since he understood that he’s in charge 🙂 I always let him walk by himself for half the distance until I leash Nova to him and after that they both walk free from me but Nova still can’t do anything she shouldn’t 🙂 I think this might be the answer if she refuses to stop running after hares. But there is one field where I can see if there are any hares and she’s allowed to walk by herself there.
I thought it would be nice to take a little nap after the walk, fifteen minutes up to half an hour is perfect and the day always get good after that. Unfortunately for me I slept for more than two and a half hour and that’s never good 🙂 🙂 🙂 I tend to get cranky, get a head ache and sort of zombie like for the rest of the day when that happens and I can honestly say that today is no exception. So when we were out walking a while ago I did over react when ever Orvar walked away to far ahead of us and I did over react when they continued to walk when I told them to stop and so on. The good thing is that not a single wild animal stayed within hearing distance after me going on 🙂 🙂 🙂
There was a short while when the clouds got thinner and the sun almost reached us but now it’s back to deep grey clouds again and it is almost as dark as when we went out the first time today. The kitchen door is open though because it is fairly warm but I have a fire burning in the stove at the same time. The rain makes everything feel damp and as soon as I close the door it will feel nice, dry and warm indoors again.
It is time to make another pot of tea and then I’ll get upstairs and watch a movie. I’ll start with MIB 3, if it is as bad as they say I still have two really good ones to watch after it so the day doesn’t feel like a total waste when it comes to film watching.
Have a great day!
