The world was frosted.
I woke up to a rather chilly morning, the predictions were actually spot on when it comes to the temperature!!! -8C (17,6F) Guess if I’m surprised 🙂 🙂 The rain and high humidity that we’ve had lately helped to frost everything outside so the world was rather sparkling white and lots of it sparkled in different colors when the sun every now and again managed to shine through gaps in the cloud cover. Too bad those are so difficult to capture with the camera.
The fog that they had predicted however never came, well they are saying that we’ll get fog from 3pm but there are no signs what so ever that this prediction will come true. I’m still hoping though because if it actually shows up at 3 I’ll have around 36 minutes to et some photos until the sun sinks and it’ll get dark again. In summer it take a couple of hours until it is dark after the sun has set, in winter it takes minutes. It’s only one month and one day until it slowly, slowly starts to turn around towards longer days again.
I started the day with starting a fire in the stove and the cottage got nice and warm rather quickly but it takes a few days until the warmth stays for any longer period of time, the walls are cold and it takes some time before the heat eats its way through them so the warmth stays an entire day after having the fire in the morning. I always wake up a lot of flies when I start using the old stove and once again I heard how the spiders above my head in the bedroom got a fat fly as evening meal. It must be a horrible death for the fly but every time I hear them getting caught in those webs I say “Thank You Charlotte” 🙂
The security police here in Sweden raised the threat level of terrorism during the week claiming they had proof a young man was up to something and that they searched after him everywhere (they even posted a photo of him so we all could look for the “evil” one), turns out he was at home in his apartment all the time and had even made updates on facebook 🙂 🙂 This isn’t the first time our secret police makes a fool out of themselves. One time they stormed an apartment and knocked down a man in front of his children. It turns out they had stormed the wrong place and that the man was totally innocent! So far they haven’t apologised to the family and this is over a year ago.
Every time they bring any of those “evil” men to court they lose so I have serious doubts about if they actually know anything but instead just want to be as cool as the big boys in other countries that actually have problems. The one suicide bomber we actually have had was missed totally and to be honest he wasn’t the brightest star in the sky. The only thing he blew up was himself and a car. It is also well known that our secret police don’t do much about the ones we do fear, the nazis. They can run around threatening people and start riots without being disturbed at all.
It doesn’t look like we’ll get any fog, too bad I wanted to get a few good fog and frost photos but that will have to wait for a while. Instead I’ll make a pot of tea, start a fire in the stove and enjoy the evening.
Have a great day!
