I shouldn’t be surprised.
I could see the last shivering moments of daylight when I came home after work today, soon it will be light enough to take photos when walking with the dogs again 🙂 We still have a very high humidity here (around 96%) even if the temperatures are way below 0C (32F), usually the humidity sinks when it gets colder and it was foggy on my way home after work, not that common when it is this cold either.
Two hares scared the living daylight out of me on my way home. I could see the first one rather early but got really surprised when I realised it ran towards my car and it refused to jump of the road. So I hit the brakes and turned left (I was alone on the road and drove slowly) and to my big surprise the hare jumped in the same direction! I barely missed it. I think I drove 100 meters (much the same in yards) when another jumped up on my left side and ran out in front of my car! I barely missed that one too.
Later on there was this deer standing on the road too but it had the courtesy to jump off the road in to the forest when I came close. Well at least I now know that my heart is ok 🙂 🙂 It would surely have stopped if it had been in a bad condition 🙂 I shouldn’t be surprised really because it is when it almost is dark when the animals starts to move around again. It’s a good thing the roads are so slippery that we all drive rather slow so we are able to see them before it is too late.
It’s time to start soaking more seeds that will be sown this coming weekend. I have a species of quince that I keep in water with detergent in the fridge at the moment. I’ll keep on changing that water and detergent several times every day for ten days before I sow those seeds and put the pots outside. They mustn’t get warm because if they do they’ll die. It can be really interesting sowing seeds 🙂 I’ll also have one pot in which I’ll sow the seeds, then I’ll put lots of ashes over the soil and after that I’ll pour boiling water over it all, I hope that can resemble a bush fire 🙂 🙂 🙂
But first I’ll make a cup of hot cocoa and something to eat.
Have a great day!
