The sun is shining!
I was late going on our walk this morning which turned out to be a good thing since the hunters came, a bit late too actually. I didn’t come far until the hunting leader approached me and asked if I could walk elsewhere today since they would walk around in a bigger area than usual. I really don’t mind so we walked in to the village instead. They also told me that they’ll stop hunting February 15 since that’s the last day they can hunt hare.
There might be an occasional hunt for wild hogs after that date though but so far nothing was planned. I have to admit that I thought they would give up early as they usually do but they are still going on even if some of the hunters have given up. I had hoped that we would be able to walk to the bog on our second walk but since they still are out there I thought there was no use in bringing any digital camera if we walked through the village again, so I brought the Hasselblad instead.
Perhaps I should have brought one with me because I suddenly realised that we hadn’t walked to the little lake north to the village for quite some time. The sun was shining and it was 5C (41F) in the shadow so the snow started to melt rather quickly. There were lots of branches on the ground and prone to fall as I am I naturally did fall 🙂 My right foot got caught beneath a branch and when I tried to get rid of it I blocked my left leg with the branch 🙂 I can tell You that the ground still is very soft and I didn’t feel a thing when I landed on my knees 🙂
The wind that blows are rather nasty and sort of semi strong so my scarf kept flying around all the time but I was so glad I used it. But as soon as we went in to the forest it made me so warm I felt like I was boiling 🙂 but that’s better than freezing after all. I have also vacuumed my cottage and scrubbed all floors, it feels so nice to walk barefoot on newly washed floors and here it lasts for a day as most, that’s life when having four dogs 🙂
They say we’ll have sunshine tomorrow as well and that it will be slightly colder, so I won’t be surprised if it gets warmer and starts to rain 🙂 I hope the hunters stay away tomorrow so we finally can walk up to the bog again! I really want to find that other bridge that they say is in good condition.
It’s time to feed the dogs and after that I’ll feed myself too. Tonight they show Grimm on channel six and after that I think I’ll watch a dvd because it is way too early to go to bed at 7pm 🙂
Have a great day!
