We waited absolutely still.
No frost last night but I’m pretty sure we’ll get it tonight. They are predicting 4C (39F) and here in little Siberia that usually means below 0C (32F) and frost. The night will be clear too so a thick layer of frost on my car tomorrow won’t be a surprise to me. I was a bit surprised this morning however, I opened the kitchen door to let Sune out for a while and in to the garden jumped a doe.
She didn’t care about Sune at all and he couldn’t care less of her. I closed the door as soon as he came in and she started eating the berries on the Aronia bush. I’ve always thought it was the birds that ate them 🙂 The berries are, kindly said, nasty tart 🙂 and I can’t understand how they have become popular to have in juice and jams. The health freaks eat lots of them too because they are fully packed with vitamines and anti oxidants but they just taste nasty 🙂 I suddenly remembered that I needed socks while she was eating those berries and went outside, she was gone within a second 🙂
I forgot to tell You yesterday what I saw on my way to work. I pass a huge stable where a trotting trainer have all his horses. Every morning they tale them out to the paddocks and it does happen that those rather nervous horses take their chance to run away while they are walking to the paddock so I always drive slow until I passed the place. Yesterday I saw one horse running like crazy in a small grove of trees. It ran fast but it looked a bit odd. I can’t say what it was but something wasn’t right.
I drove so slow that I almost stood still with the car when I saw the horse standing in a ditch. It was then I also saw a person hanging to the bridle 🙂 From what I can understand by seeing this the man had never let go of the bridle and just been forced to hold on for his life 🙂 The poor man looked a bit shaken to put it mildly and his clothes had seen better days. All cars that now had arrived to the place stood absolutely still, first we wanted to see if the man could walk at all and that he could but he did limp badly. Then we stood still until he had come so far away that the sound from our cars wouldn’t stress the horse to do something similar again. I guess that man still doesn’t feel too well and I do hope he loves horses otherwise I doubt he still works there 🙂
It is time for something to eat and to check that the radiators are on, the night will be a tad chilly I think 🙂
Have a great day!
