So where is that plastic bag?

The only photo I took today. The group of sheep outside their pasture is now getting bigger, I saw at least eight this morning but they all ran in to their pasture as soon as they saw the dogs and I.

I bought a big loaf of bread when I was at the super market yesterday. I remember picking it up from the bag and putting it on the kitchen counter. I can’t find it now! I’ve been looking everywhere since yesterday when I couldn’t find it. It was placed so that only Orvar would be able to reach it and it was placed in a thin plastic bag. I really don’t care about the bread, I can bake bread if I wish too, the problem is that I can’t find that plastic bag anywhere!





normally when the dogs take something they leave traces of evidence but there isn’t a single piece of either the bread nor the plastic bag! The thing is that when this happens (not especially often now days) the culprit usually gets a very upset stomach but none of them have. I am worried that the plastic bag would get stuck in the stomach but they are all eating with great appetite, no vomiting and show now sign of problems. I couldn’t find any traces of the plastic bag when they pooped either. I have checked the entire cottage after traces or if I placed the bread elsewhere than I thought I did but no, it has just vanished from the earth 🙂





I never lock the door when I’m around so anyone could of course have walked in to my home and nicked it but it is a bit far-fetched to think that someone would nick a bread and then walk out again without taking anything else 🙂 🙂 🙂 So I’ll just keep on looking at my dogs when they poop and hope for the best. I’ve even checked the garden if I could see the plastic bag there but nothing so far.




Today feels much chillier than yesterday even if it actually are a bit warmer but the humidity is high and clouds cover the sky. I only took one photo on our morning walk and that’s quite unusual 🙂  but I have plenty to take from earlier days this week. The weather isn’t especially inspiring and I’ve been more concerned about that plastic bag. All the animals are asleep and I think I’ll join them in a while, normally I do laundry on Sundays but it’s vacation so it can wait 🙂





Have a great day!


My first almost ripe tomato! Naturally the birds pooped on it :-)

    you would think that if one of them ate the bag you would see signs of it in their poop. there was a dog on the news this morning who ate 60 hairbands and 7 pairs of underwear. teddy hardly eats her food let alone anything else. i am just getting my first tomatoes too!

    Hi Christer! I wonder where that bag went?!?! How very odd. I hope you have found it by now! We are currently under a heat and weather advisory. The temperature is 29 but with the humidity it feels like 36. Its gross outside. When you step out you feel like you are walking into a warm slightly damp woolen blanket. Yuck! My husband has gone to chase some storms to the south of us. I am sure at some point we will be under a tornado watch. This weather is supposed to stick around for the week at least. July is my least favorite month (well except for January) because we have summer for such a short time but you can’t go outside. I’d like to move to a province where at least we can enjoy the seasons but since we didn’t win the lottery last night, we are staying put. For now anyway! 🙂 I hope your holidays are going well and nice and slow! I went strawberry picking yesterday morning. I got 8 litres of berries and made jam, froze 3 big bags and whatever is left was eaten at leisure. It was fun and good to go before the sun became strong. We were in the fields picking just after 8 a.m. Then we went to our local farmer market in St. Norbert (just outside our city) – I needed spinach because although my garden is growing, its not fast enough! 🙂 Have a good evening!

    • Hi Dianna!

      I still haven’t found it 🙂 But all dogs stomachs are fine now so I can only hope that the bread was brought outside while I was napping and that the bag is somewhere in my garden 🙂

      No risk of that here 🙂 it will be rainy later on they say and we might reach 20C but the humidity is high this morning so it’s quite unpleasant outside.

      I just watched the real time lightning site and there are some really big thunderstorms in Canada so I guess he had the chanse to see some good stroms! Our weather will also stick around for at least a week but most likely longer. I like it when it is around 20C but the rain could go elsewhere 🙂 I do hope You won’t get any tornado!

      November and February are my two least liked months, both are just dreadful 🙂

      It seems to be a really good berry year this year! I’ve never seen this many blueberries on my bushes before, I’ll get a few cherries and even raspberries this year. The raspberries I have rarely give any berries and the ones they give usually taste very little. Some years however they give both plenty and tasty ones so I hope this is such a year 🙂 My carrots, red onions and broccoli grows fine too 🙂

      Have a great day!

    • Hi Mona!

      I will 🙂 But all seems fine in their stomachs now so I can only hope for the best. Still I do wonder where that bag is 🙂

      Have a great day!

  4. Ledsen att behöva påpeka det, men precis som oss andra så börjar du bli lite äldre (notera att jag inte skriver gammal) så jag tror att du helt enkelt glömt bort vilken dag du la upp brödet på bänken. 🙂 Ja, jag vet att du minns det så klart. Kommer ihåg hur plastpåsen såg ut och allting, men det hjälper inte… 🙂 🙂
    Min gubbe gör så hela tiden (han är 5 år äldre än mig) och så “vet han” att han har lagt den eller den saken på ett speciellt ställe. Eller så har han läst något i en tidning och det var på vänstra sidan och en jättestor artikel. Så visar det sig att det är fel tidning, det är på högra sidan och artikeln är pytteliten….. *fniss* (Fast det ska bli kul att höra om, när, var du hittar brödet! 🙂 🙂 🙂 )

    • Hejsan Susie!

      🙂 🙂 🙂 Denna gången är jag dock helt säker på vad jag gjort och när 🙂 Hade nämligen inget bröd på morgonen och åkte därför till stormarknaden och köpte ett. Minns att jag blev förvånad över hur mjukt brödet var och tänkte att det nog var mest luft. Annars hade jag nog trott att du kunde ha rätt 🙂

      Brödet hittar jag nog inte men plastpåsen borde ju finnas någonstans även om det skulle komma ut småbitar ur en hund 🙂

      Ha det gott!
