I woke up at 4am today, a bit early but I felt fully rested so there was no use in staying in bed. I took a look out the window and saw that ground fog was building up. I could however not see if the sky was clear or cloudy but I’ve never seen ground fog unless the sky has been clear. Turns out it wasn’t just ground fog, it continued to build up to become “normal” fog.
It wasn’t that thick at the beginning but the longer we were out walking the thicker it became. My thermometers said 6C (42,8F) so I wore a fleece jacket but it didn’t feel that cold to be honest and after a while I started to regret wearing it. We started to walk towards the forest and bog but the fog wasn’t thick enough to be seen in there so we turned around and walked into the village instead.
Bertil, who had went out half an hour before us met up when we were leaving the forest and followed us on our entire walk. It s nice to see him coming back to normal again even if he may stay a nice cat, he’s so nice and kind now that no one of us can stand him for longer periods of time 🙂 🙂 Yesterday evening I had to toss him away from my bed because he just wouldn’t leave us alone 🙂
There were very few flies in the air but I could hear them warming up in the vegetation, they start to move their wings to warm up their bodies so every tree and bush sort of was buzzing, very strange sound 🙂 WE had been out for around an hour and was where the Beekeeper lives, it was so nice outside and the fog had thickened so much that I decided we should go to the bog anyway. The only sound, besides the flies, I could hear was one bird singing. Can’t say what species though. I also heard two squirrels chattering when Sune scared them and they were running upwards on a tree trunk.
I would have loved to walk around on the bog this foggy morning but it is now so wet that it’s hard to walk there and it is rather difficult to see deep holes as it is and almost impossible if it is foggy. So we turned homewards again. I was surprised to see that the fog stayed as long as it did, the sun didn’t manage to break through until around 9am.
I must have strained every single muscle in my back yesterday when I was cleaning the paint box 🙂 🙂 I don’t have to sit still more than a few minutes before they all get stiff and it is a pain to get up to do something 🙂 🙂
It is time to get a cup of coffee and a sandwich or two. After that I think it’s best to start moving again so my back can go back to normal 🙂
Have a great day!
