Winter may have just started.
I woke up in the middle of a night from a stench so foul that it was impossible to breathe. My first thought was that it was one of the dogs having problems with the stomach. So I got up and started to look after te place I had to clean up. How wrong I was, it turns out it was one of the cats who had been in the litter box but hadn’t covered it afterwards. How on earth can a small cat create something so nasty smelling???? It was horrible to go in to the bathroom and clean it up, still he had no stomach problems what so ever, it just smelled that way 🙂 🙂
It hadn’t started to snow when we were up the first time but it had when we went up the second time.Well I don’t count what had started to fall yesterday evening because I don’t call that snow even if it technically most likely is called that. You know those tiny ice flakes you can see when we’re having frost? It was those that fell from the sky and it is quite beautiful when it happens but it doesn’t happen often and it is never a lot of it falling.
The wind was a bit stronger than I realised at first so we walked out on the fields and it didn’t take long until I couldn’t see anything through my glasses 🙂 I’m so glad that I now have a lens with autofocus because I couldn’t see a thing 🙂 So we walked to the creek where I knew the wind wouldn’t reach us. I had also brought the Hasselblad camera with me and it will be fun to see how those photos will look like. It has a very dark seeker and it is hard to focus as it is and today it was impossible 🙂 🙂
We passed the dead deer again and this time Nova showed a much bigger interest in it but thankfully she does what she’s told to do even if I could see that she wasn’t happy at all to have to leave this reeking wonder 🙂 I was totally covered in snow when we came home but the jacket wasn’t especially wet at all when it all melted away. I’ve hung it over a radiator though so it will feel warm when we’re going out again today. We’ll have snow almost all day but it will get warmer by the evening and then it’ll start to rain (at the moment however it sounds as if it in this snow also follows half icy marbles, we call it marble snow. It looks much like hail but is much softer, just like snow).
It will however start to freeze again just when I’m about to drive to work tomorrow morning and after that it looks like winter actually has arrived, it will stay colder for at least the rest of the week but it is just a prediction and those I don’t trust at all 🙂 It also says a lot of sun so that makes me even more sceptical 🙂 They show nothing of interest on tv unless I want to see the rerun of the absolute last episode of Downton Abbey. I watched it yesterday and I have liked these programs even though they have had very little to do with how it really was working and living in such a place. If You like this show You will like this last episode.
So instead I think I’ll watch a disaster movie on dvd. The weather all over the world says The Day After Tomorrow but I watched that not too long ago, so why not 2012 🙂 Otherwise I might just as well take a long nap and a nap is never wrong 🙂
Have a great day!
