It’s a wonderful morning, the sun is shining and it’s fairly warm. Nights are always chilly here, even during hot summers so fairly warm isn’t bad at all 🙂 We didn’t even have frost during the night so it couldn’t be much better. Even better was that all dogs behaved very well, that was not the case yesterday. Sune became squirrel insane 🙂 so any sound was interpreted as a squirrel on the run and he want after it 🙂 Guess if he was surprised when I leashed him for almost the entire walk 🙂
Nova is always walking in her own little world now days so she really doesn’t care about anything moving, what a difference to when she first came here 🙂 I can only hope that Albin too soon will walk the same path but I doubt that very much at the moment 🙂 He does walk perfect while leashed though and the few times he is unleashed he almost does as I tell him to 🙂 He’s very much like a dachshund, he will come if I call but it is never clear when he will 🙂
I had planned on walking in the village and then out on the fields this morning since I don’t think my feet will manage to walk all the way to the lake and back again but when we came up to the road it looked as if the entire road was covered in glass shards, they shone so beautiful in the morning sunshine. Turns out that they, after I came home from work yesterday, poured out new gravel on the road and after that salted it so it won’t dust now when it’s dry weather, so it was the salt flakes that shone so beautiful. Not good for the dogs though so we went down to the creek instead.
I didn’t see much wildlife this morning, a few geese and trumpet swans flew by and that was it. I could hear several Black Grouse roosters out on the bog too but those are very hard to come close. The best thing is to get out the night before and stay the night in some kind of shelter where they will be the next morning and then sit absolutely quiet as long as they are around. One sound and they’ll all fly away. I can think of several thing I’d rather do than that 🙂
I’ve soon finished my pot of tea and as soon as I have we’ll go out for another walk again. I’ll see if it is dry enough to walk out on the bog but I doubt that. It might be that all smaller creeks are dried out but the bog is like a huge sponge so it’ll take quite some time without any rain before it is dry enough to walk on without wearing rubber boots. My neighbor just blew his nose and none of the dogs cared but Teodor jumped out of his box and ran to the door to check what it was 🙂
Have a great day!
