He’s better.

I didn't take especially many photos today, the weather wasn't especially inspiring :-)

We’ll get rather strong winds today and the gusts might almost reach storm force. Naturally the wind will blow from the only direction when I can notice it here in my garden and it will stay that way until Monday. The predictions say snow but it rains rather heavily right now.Β

We might actually get up to 21cm (8,4 inches) until tomorrow night. I’m not looking forward to it to be honest πŸ™‚ They say next week will be below 0C (32F) until next weekend so it will at least not be messy on the gravel roads here in the village. The predictions for Wednesday-Thursday jumps wildly when it comes to how cold it will be. Anything from -2C (28,4F) to down to -18C (-0,4F) has been predicted so far πŸ™‚ Personally I hope they’ve gotten it wrong as usual and that the temperature won’t go down below freezing point.

I can’t find anything interesting on tv today so I think I’ll read a book instead. I di still have plenty of dvd’s to watch as well if I can’t find any book interesting enough. Albin however is already bored πŸ™‚ None of the others wants to play indoors and he won’t go outside as long as it rains. So at the moment he is close to the radiator whining in a high-pitched tone that is quite annoying πŸ™‚ He also have this sigh so deep it sounds as if his lungs are loose rattling inside him πŸ™‚ It’s hard to be a rain hating dog today πŸ™‚


The rest are from yesterday morning.

I think the new food works, he still farts bad but he’s a dog so I don’t expect anything else πŸ™‚ But he hasn’t had a wobbly stomach since I changed to the new kind, which isn’t that long ago but it is noticeable. His pale skin is less red/ pinkish now too so I do hope the eczemaΒ will vanish within a few days now.





I started to write this hours ago and during that time I’ve been outside putting sand and gravel in pot holes in the road outside my garden, not the best time to do it since they were full of water but I figured that if not too many drive on the repairs the road will freeze before the new sand and gravel is gone again πŸ™‚ Still no snow from the sky though, it should have started an hour ago but I’m not complaining πŸ™‚ I’ve also talked to my neighbors three-year old daughter and her mormor (grandmother on the mother’s side) and also checked if I have electric cables touse outdoors. I need to buy more.





It is time for a pot of tea and then I’ll start with a book I think. I doubt we’ll get Albin to go outside until it starts to snow πŸ™‚

Have a great day!

  1. Hi Christer! Oh your weather sounds like ours for the past week or so! Very dreadful! And nasty to walk in! Karma doesn’t mind weather at all but our Tucker HATES going out in rain. He will find every way possible to not go out, but of course at some point its necessary πŸ™‚ I hope it stops for you and no snow until early December πŸ™‚

    We are to get to 17 both days now! Incredible but so sad that its gotten to this stage. Climate change is a horrible thing.

    Today is a busy day so I am so glad the dogs woke me up just before 6 πŸ™‚ I guess they knew I had loads of stuff to do. After work yesterday we packed up the car and Karma (Tucker gets too car sick to go anywhere) and went to my favorite provincial park, Bird’s Hill. We had a picnic and wandered the lands and forests. It was grand!

    Are you on Instagram? I wondered if you are because of your great photos. I am on it and follow some really nice accounts with great photos.

    Well, I hope the weather stops for you and that you are able to get out and wander. Have a good evening!


    1. Hi Dianna!

      Can’t pretend I like it πŸ™‚ It snows like crazy right now but it is still so warm that it melts as soon as it hits theb ground, thankfully πŸ™‚ The only time I like snow is if it fall some during christmas vacation and then it must be gone just after new year πŸ™‚

      That climate change could show its face a bit more up here πŸ™‚

      I moved to the right pklace because I love walking around here in the forest and on the bog πŸ™‚

      No I’m not, I’ve actually never even looked at anything on Instagram πŸ™‚ I’ll see what it is aftyer this.

      Time to feed the dogs before Albin get too high pitched πŸ™‚

      Have a great day!



  2. Hi Christer,
    These dogs that melt in the rain can be difficult. πŸ™‚
    The high pitched whining would aggravate me beyond bearing. I might be moved to toss him out in the rain and close the door for a few minutes. I’d keep watch in case of coyotes. Rocky’s low pitched and almost silent spoiled brat noise is probably even more aggravating than Albin’s though. I’ve reached full irritation levels long before I realize what’s irritating me and who.

    Last night went below freezing here. There was frost as well as a thick skim of ice on the bird bath. I left the little quince outside overnight for the first time. It looked okay this morning but it needs to go in the ground soon.

    Today is mostly cloudy and damp. I hope your weather forecast is wrong and you don’t get any snow at all. Just rain.

    Enjoy the day.


    1. Hi Caryn!

      Yes they sure can πŸ™‚ Where did I write that πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      I did just that a few minutes ago πŸ™‚ He went to the door and hit the poochie bells, I opened it and he turned back into the kitchen. Then he did it again so I tossed him outside πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I don’t have to worry about the coyotes though πŸ™‚

      Snowing like crazy here but still no snow on the ground, too warm and wet at the moment but they say the temperature will drop during the night so I will most likely wake up to a snow covered world tomorrow. It is easier to plant the quince now than before You need to use dynamite to make a hole in the ground πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      I guess since iut is weather I really don’t want they willget it right this time πŸ™‚

      have a great day!



      1. Rocky hits the poochie bells so that I will get up, Piki Dog will follow and Rocky can run back and steal Piki’s toy or my food. Or he rings them because he wants the front door open to the porch or because he wants to go out so he can come back in and get a cookie for having gone out.
        Piki Dog rings them so he can run outside and eat grass and rabbit poo.
        Nobody ever rings them because they have to go outside and do business. :/ These terriers are too smart sometimes.


      2. Albin has hit the bells so many times tonight that I refuse to go to the door again tonight πŸ™‚ He just look out on the falling snow and white ground, then he looks at me like I actually is responsible for the bad weather and turns back into the kitchen again πŸ™‚ It’s only when Sune comes to the door that he actually goes out for a minute or two πŸ™‚


  3. I agree.
    You need to be on Instagram.
    You definitely have the great photos to share!
    I really hope you will consider it.

    Some of my dogs will go right out into the rain.
    It never stops Blue
    but some of the little ones put on the brakes when they see rain.

    I hate to tell you but I have a window open right now!
    Yep! and it was in the 70’s today here in the Midwest!
    I planted some roses and a few discounted plants I had picked up and never gotten around to planting.
    I know how this weather can be, warm today and who knows what tomorrow!
    I really do NOT want the snow.

    (I’m crossing my fingers that you’ll do Instagram!
    you can find me at cindimyers053 )

    1. Hi Cindi!

      I’ll take a look at it πŸ™‚

      It’s snowing like crazy here this morning, it would most likely not be like crazy if the wind hadn’t blow as hard as it does though but anyway Albin just refused to go outside πŸ™‚ I told him in not so many words that if he wakes me up thatearly because he wants to go outside he actually has to go outside even if it is a snowstorm out there πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      I so wish we had Your temperature here πŸ™‚ but I’m afraid it’s going the opposite way right now. It will be nasty cold in the middle of the week but how nasty cold we don’t know.

      Have a great day!



  4. Christer,
    I love snow pictures but I hate snow. It is usually so inconvenient. We will have a temperature drop tonight but no snow. It is far too early for us.

    Sometimes I wish my pets could talk then I think how awful that would be. The best part would them telling us when they don’t feel good. The bad part is just having to listen to them complain. Albin does it well without words so imagine how awful it would be if he spoke.

    Gracie doesn’t mind rain unless it is pouring. She’ll come inside and her fur will be wet which is the only way I know it is raining. She is also a complainer and whines and barks at me when I don’t do whatever it is she wants. Maddie is quiet though she does meow to be patted.

    Stay warm!


    1. Hi Kat!

      It’s the same here. It is very beautiful on photographs but just annoying in the real πŸ™‚

      Yes he does speak weal without words πŸ™‚ but I have started to recognize the different sounds he use for different things so it is more or less as if he spoke and he does it constantly πŸ™‚

      Teodor shouts all the time when he decides to follow us on our walks or when he wants food, otherwise he’s quiet. Bertil almost only makes a sound when he knows a moose or wildhogs are nearby so I’m always glad when he follows us on our walks πŸ™‚

      Have a great day!
