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…

… 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

The chaffinches have some serious competition these days.

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.

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.

Spring – Umpteenth Edition

Filed under: Nature — allmycke @ 8:09 pm

I have jackets/coats/parkas suitable for any temperature between – 40C to + 15C in my hallway right now. I don’t intend to pack away the real winter-gear until I have a lawn outside my patio – but right now it seems to be a long way away.

Mom and DadHowever, swans and geese seem to be confident that spring is here.

Spring – 2nd Edition

Filed under: Loki,Nature — allmycke @ 8:45 pm

… 3rd – or maybe even 4th!

The MoteI’ve lost count. This is however the first time that Loki has been stopped by a seemingly deep river when he wanted to take off up the hill! You could almost Think he’s become a bit prissy – not wanting to muddy his feet…
