We’re having a nasty weather today. It’s chilly with winds and rain. Every now and again the wind calms down and the rain becomes a nice spring rain but then the winds return and it gets just nasty. The old stable saved us again when we were on our way home from our walk and from now on I refuse to go outside any more today.
I had planned to fill my car with petrol before I started working on Wednesday morning so I was planning on going away a bit earlier than usual. Just as I was going out the door my stomach told me not too 🙂 I was still a bit early when I finally drove away even if I would have to hurry a bit. The night had been cold and it had rained the evening before so it was anything but easy to drive even slowly 🙂 The big road was ok but the smaller one in the forest had a thick layer of ice.
Suddenly hares jumped around on the road and beside it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many hares at the same time and since it would be difficult to brake hard I had to slow down even more. When I finally had passed them I noticed a deer perhaps 200 meters (much the same in yards) in front of me. It walked slowly from one side of the road to the other, nothing strange with that but when it had reached the other side it started walking back again and it continued like that until my car was just a few meters away. I have no idea what it was doing but suddenly it decided that jumping in to the forest would be the best it could do.
I hadn’t come far when suddenly a goose family walked out from the forest! Two big geese and three goslings. The goslings jumped down into a ditch but there parents refused to leave the road and walked in front of the car with their wings spread. There was nothing much I could do but to slowly drive behind them until they finally decided they should fly back to the tiny ones. I don’t think I drove more than a few meters when a timber lorry suddenly appeared on the road 🙂 It is not easy to pass a timber lorry if one drives on a very little road in the middle of the forest 🙂
After that it was calm for some time, at least until I came out to the fields. Then there were at least a hundred birds, some kind of seagull, standing on the road and they all refused to fly away. I really didn’t want yo drive over them so I had to stop and there we were looking at each other, I was just about to open the door to go out and scare them away when they all suddenly lifted and flew out on the field, it was newly plowed so I guess they all were there to get some worms for breakfast 🙂 I didn’t make it to the petrol station that morning, I barely made it in time to work 🙂
Yesterday morning was a bit different. I didn’t meet any geese and there were no seagulls on the road but the deer was there doing more or less the same thing and I met two horses 🙂 They weren’t alone but led by two people. One of the horses was stressed so I just slowly rolled pass them and didn’t speed up until they were far behind me. Today was quite uneventful, I met three cars and that was it 🙂
Have a great day!
