Night Sky

Filed under: Important stuff,Nature,Photography — allmycke @ 7:11 pm

Returning from en emergency trip to the Big Hospital, the sky looked like this…

2335

… but I had to use a picture from last May, since my camera was at home.

The trip? Well, it was urgent enough, but basically another step in making sure a young person close to me will receive adequate treatment. More later.

May I Introduce…

Mr and Mrs Loon. LoonsI fell in love with the Canadian author Margareta Atwood, when I read Surfacing” in which she describes the haunting sound of loons across a summer lake. It resounded in me as if she had written that passage about my memories from Sweden. (Yes, I believe it was one of the first books I read after moving to Canada in 1974…)

Update:

When looking at the picture again, I realize this might be Mr and Mr Loon… the females aren’t as gaudily decked out as these two…

The Little House That Couldn’t

Filed under: Just stuff — allmycke @ 7:06 pm

This outhouse has been on the decline during the past few years…

Little House

… and would have toppled over if it weren’t for the tree it now uses to lean on. You may wonder why the owner hasn’t torn it down long time ago. So do I – but maybe they only use their little cottage as a day-cabin.

Brambling

Filed under: Nature — allmycke @ 6:49 pm

The chaffinches have some serious competition these days.

BramblingThese are called brambling according to my dictionary – fierce little guys who will even take on bullfinches when it comes to sunflower seeds

Sweden vs Canada

Filed under: Just stuff — allmycke @ 9:14 pm

This is about hockey.

crosby-goalSweden and Canada are playing as I write this. My hope is that Canada will win this game (right now it’s 4 even…). Not that I REALLY care one way or the other – but it would be sweet to meet our Phys. Ed teacher  with a NA-na-ne-na-na tomorrow over coffee.
Yeah – I can be a bit wicked at times – especially when it comes to men who are closet MCP:s such as the person I just mentioned.

People say that bullfinches are very shy…

I have at least three pairs who are helping me get rid of a big bag of sunflower seeds. Picture is taken through the window – which has not been cleaned this side of last Christmas – please do not judge the clarity of the motif!

A Record?

Filed under: Personal,Photography,Work — allmycke @ 7:39 pm

Well, nothing to boast about – but this must be the least number of posts I’ve managed during a month.

April 29th6 posts in a month is an all-time low – and my writer’s block is almost totally due to events I can’t really share at this point. I won’t waste many words on the lousy, moody weather we’ve seen  during the past 7-8 weeks – the rest will just have to remain on the back shelf just a wee bit longer.
