A few hours of sunshine.
I woke up this rather wonderful but chilly morning to the news about what had happened in Paris yesterday evening. I was looking at facebook and wondered why I saw all these comments about us all being French today but no explanation to why. So I popped over to the newspapers and found out. It is still not confirmed who did this and why but we all have our suspicions. But then again we all had when Breivik killed all these people in Norway and how wrong we were then.
It is when things like these happens that I appreciate how fantastic I live, in a cottage by a bog at the outskirts of the world where the main concern at the moment is that they have chopped down a part of the forest and that flies tend to destroy the summer if spring was rainy. Sort of gives perspective to how small our problems are here 🙂
We’ve had a chilly morning here and some parts of the forest had frost, the grass on the roads were still frozen when we walked there an hour after the sun had risen. Flocks of birds flew between the trees, deer was jumping around all over the place and I heard a moose calf calling for its mother when we came a bit too close for it. Thankfully mother moose decided to walk the opposite way bringing her youngling with her.
We walked out to the bog and the chopped down area is smaller than I first thought and it sort of makes a circle around an area making it an island of trees. I don’t know why they’ve done it that way but I’m pretty sure the wildlife likes it. They can go out and graze in the open areas and fairly quickly run in to safety in the forest if they need to.
The clouds are once again starting to cover the sky so I was lucky to be outside while the sun still shone. We might get some sunshine before it sets at 3:49 pm and we’ll get some sunshine tomorrow morning again before the clouds and rain comes again. It is the small moments we’ll have to enjoy 🙂
Have a great day!
