Frosty and cold.

We’ve had a rather cold night here, -8,3C (17F) according to my thermometer and it still hasn’t risen above 0C (32F). The sun they predicted yesterday will according to the new predictions not show and it’ll also be much cooler than yesterdays predictions. The warmer weather will return later next week, too bad that we all will be working then.


It isn’t easy when the competitor is just as stubborn as one self 🙂

Still, it wasn’t too bad walking with the dogs since there was no wind what so ever. The wild life kept away from us today but we did see some deer, swans and geese and we could hear the cranes on the other side of the village. We also looked at a Bluetit for quite some time. It had found the mirror on a tractor and it was fighting the enemy on the other side with all its strength, too bad the other one was just as stubborn 🙂 🙂


We had pancakes yesterday and if You have Instagram You can see a short video of how Albin is like when waiting for his pancake 🙂 I go under the name jordbyggare (It’s another name for a wight). All three of them do love pancakes so it is a good thing Albin can eat them without getting sick. My neighbor gave me a bag of dog food that only contains chicken, corn, rice and beetroot fibers and it looks as if Albin can eat that food too without any reactions. He still just gets a little of it but so far so good. Wouldn’t be surprised if it actually costs more than what it does now when I boil the chicken myself 🙂


It is time to get some breakfast, we’ve been up for almost four hours and all but me have had something to eat. All the dogs are sleeping beneath the kitchen table and the cats sleep somewhere else in the cottage. Who knows, I might take a nap after breakfast too but after that it’ll be time for another walk again.


Have a great day!

  1. Fy 17 vilket trist väder det är! 😦 Jag har massor av jobb i trädgården, men kan inte göra något av det på grund av kylan. Man är ju dessutom extra känslig för den när man har ont i ryggen. Har dock sittandes på en pall lyckats rensa 3,5 pallkragsrabatt, vilket jag är nöjd med. 🙂 Nu väntar jag på värmen……
    Är det en blåmes som bråkar med sig själv? Dom är ju väldans aggresiva och på den sista bilden ser han så himla ilsk ut. Fast jag gillar bäst den där han burrar upp sig för att se större ut….. 🙂 🙂


    1. Hejsan Susie!

      Här har det faktiskt blivit rätt skönt väder nu, solen lyser igenom molnen och ibland är det stora glipor så den träffar direkt. Jag har planterat lte olika saker och dessutom planterat om tomaterna och stått ute och gjort det 🙂

      Ja det är en blåmes och de är redigt aggressive, måste väl vara det om man är så liten 🙂

      Ha det gott!



  2. Hi Christer,
    The blue tit was funny. I didn’t see him in the first photo and was trying to figure out what the competition was about. Then I saw him at the mirror and laughed. Another great photographic sequence.

    I don’t have Instagram. I might sign up for it just to see Albin in pancake mode. 🙂

    Yesterday was very sunny and windy. I was outside for several hours and now have a patches of sunburnt skin in weird places. The weirdest being two toes on my right foot. I was wearing flip-flops and that was the foot that was stuck out in the sun most of the time I was outside. I also have sunburned scalp and face.
    Today will be hot, sunny, and humid. 84ºF. Tomorrow it will be back down to normal and then it will get cold. April in New England.

    Enjoy the day.


    1. Hi Caryn!

      Bluetits are rather aggressive so it won’t give up any time soon 🙂

      The day turned out to be much better than any prediction said! The clouds vanished for a few hours and we ecen reached almost 50F! So I dressed wrong all day since I thought it wouldn’t last, I even put my winter jacket on 🙂 So no risk of sunburn here 🙂 Toes can become nasty if burnt too hard, not even flip-flops can be used until the pain is gone 🙂 The predictions for tomorrow now says clody and only 35,6F. I hope they will be just as wrong about tomorrows predictions as they were today 🙂

      Have a great day!



  3. Christer,
    Those are fun pictures of Albin. He is definitely impatient. He is great at giving kisses. He knows who to play up to!

    I do not want weather as cold as you’re having. My mind is thinking spring and won’t tolerate winter anymore. Up north will be at the freezing mark tonight, but we ill be in the 50’s, acceptable nighttime temperature.

    I even had my window open for a while today. I am so ready for warmth.

    Have a great evening!


    1. Hi Kat!

      So You have Instagram 🙂 That happåens every day here 🙂

      April can be either winter or spring so one never knows here, still I wouldn’t mind if it could be a bit warmer. Well not up to the 80’s 🙂 Nights are really cold here but as You know by now we almost never have nighst warmer than 50F even during summers.

      Summer will come faster than we can imagine and suddenly it’s winter again 🙂

      Have a great day!
