It isn’t especially nice today either but it is slightly warmer and so far not a single snowflake mixed in the rain. The wind is slightly weaker and has changed direction just a little bit so it doesn’t hit my cottage any more. I’m not used to the wind hitting my home so when it does it feels rather chilly indoors.
It took quite some time to convince Albin that it would be a good idea to take a walk in this weather, I actually had to drag him through the entrance 🙂 He had been outside for a few minutes earlier in the morning and that was enough for him to decide hibernation is the way to go during winter 🙂
We hadn’t come far after I had unleashed them before he just sat down and wanted to go back home again 🙂 Eventually he did come when I called for him but I decided it was better to turn homewards again, the hunters were out in the forest so we had to turn back soon anyway.
He wasn’t happy when we came indoors either, he had realised that the weather would be exactly the same even if I opened the kitchen door 🙂 Thankfully I had three raw-hide bones so that has kept him occupied for a while. He is definitely not an autumn dog 🙂 Perhaps he will like snow better, some dogs do love snow but hate rain.
I’ll have lots of rose-hip soup today and with it I’ll have some sandwiches made from bread I baked yesterday. I used the electric oven, something I’m not used to but it worked just fine 🙂 I almost never follow recipes when baking bread but I normally have half a litre of some kind of milk, can be anything from normal milk to sour milk or yoghurt or perhaps quark mixed with some water. The flour I use is a mix between wheat flour (around 60%) and rye flour (40%) but the amount can vary between the different brands so it could also be 50/50.
This time I tossed in lots of rosemary and oregano too plus a big chunk of cheese that I had and it turned out quite delicious 🙂 Naturally I ate too much of it so I’m not sure I’ll have enough till tomorrow morning 🙂
It is time to start making that rose-hip soup and enjoy it in front of the tv 🙂
Have a great day!
