Soon the forest and bog will belong to us again.
I drove to friends I haven’t seen in years yesterday and it’s strange how one doesn’t realize how much one miss friends until one meet them again after a long time 🙂 It was a bit cold in te morning when I drove away but the roads were actually quite ok, at least in the beginning. But the wins grew in strength and by the time I was driving home again the snow was falling and the roads rather messy. It didn’t take as long as I thought to drive there, hours. I thought it might take more than three. It did take longer home though because of the winds and snow.
They have a red point Siamese cat who wasn’t too frilled to meet four rather happy and big dogs 🙂 He was placed high up on a bookshelf and stayed there in the beginning but like a true Siamese he naturally had to come to the kitchen where we were sitting and complaining about our presence 🙂 and very loudly too 🙂 🙂 I do like Siamese cats, they are great personalities 🙂 I need to go down to them again when it’s warmer again, we really only had time to catch up on what’s happening since last time we met this time.
Today I woke up to a grey and slightly foggy morning. We walked down to the creek over the fields and all dogs were unleashed all the time. I could smell the wild hogs and I don’t think they like dogs too much since they’ve been chased by hunting dogs the last couple of weekends. So I thought it was best to give the dogs a chance to flee just in case the hogs would try to scare us away or attack. Nothing happened though and even Nova behaved the entire time 🙂 Well we couldn’t see any hares and she really doesn’t care much about any other wild life.
I was hoping to get out on the bog this afternoon but hunting dogs from a neighbor area ran around here instead, I hope this is the last weekend they are allowed to hunt so we others can get back our forest and bog again 🙂 I just checked and it seems most of what’s running around here has an end for being hunted on January 31. Fallow deer however is allowed until February 28 and yearlings of wild hog all year round. So lets hope they all are tired of hunting wild hogs by now 🙂
I’ve done the laundry, paid my bills and cleaned out the kitchen stove from ashes, the cold I got before Christmas is still hanging around like a friend that doesn’t know when to go home and make me tired all the time. So I think I’ll have a tiny nap after this. Not too long though because I want the fire to burn in the stove all day long.
I think I’ll make myself some hot cocoa too before I nap, it does make me sleep so nicely 🙂
Have a great day!
