I did get rather annoyed.
It didn’t get especially cold during the night but cold enough to give a thin layer of frost on everything outside. I was just on my way to the forest when the hunters suddenly started to turn up, so I had to walk in to the village instead. Can’t even pretend I didn’t mind and I think the hunter I talked to noticed that very well 🙂 I don’t mind walking in the village but I never let these two dogs walk without being leashed there just in case we would meet anyone who is afraid of dogs.
I know that those few we meet in the forest loves dogs so I never have them leashed there, I think we are perhaps four people besides the land owners that ever walks in there so I rarely meet anyone anyway 🙂 Well, there are two more people walking there sometimes and they have a dog that my dogs actually are allowed to say hi to. Sune gets so happy that he shouts out loud when that happens 🙂 I don’t know why people with dogs here in the countryside don’t allow their dogs to greet other dogs but that’s how it is here.
The sun has been shining all day and it has been almost totally wind free too and that’s why I don’t mind if it gets colder because then the wind usually blows elsewhere. We did go out on the fields too but had to walk back the same way to get home so we wouldn’t risk to be shot and shoot they did a lot so I guess they were hunting wild hogs today. Later we walked out on another field and I brought the old Edixa with me. I think that camera might be my favorite one of all the old ones. It is heavy, hard to see through the viewer and one never knows when it will break down because those cameras were never known for any higher quality 🙂 Still I like it a lot 🙂
This time we walked out on the castles pastures because their cows have moved to the winter pastures where they have more protection against bad winter weather. Nova didn’t like that at all but I have no idea why. She wanted to go the other way all the time and I guess lots of wild hogs might have taken refuge on the other side of the creek where they didn’t hunt. I didn’t feel a lot of smell from hogs but it was there. I guess that if the wind had blown I would have felt it better. Still, no sight of any animals today, wild or tame except for the usual horses of course 🙂
It is time to make something to eat for both me and all the animals. The sun has already set (today the sun rose at 8:44 am and set at 3:15 pm. Thankfully it’s only ten more days and then it’ll turn towards longer days again even if it will take time until I actually notice anything 🙂 ) and it will get dark very fast now. The fire is burning in the wood stove, the night will get cold and tomorrow might start with some fog before the sun forces it to move away again.
Have a great day!
