It's Nov. 6 and still no snow, which is extremely unusual this time of the year. Not that mom or I are disappointed, but it’ll look a lot lighter and cleaner if it was all covered in snow. As it is now everything is gray and filthy dirty.

This morning I ran around on the neighbors’ lawn where the leaves are raked and to moms delight it doesn’t make me all that dirty. I had a shower 2 days ago, ( I so miss my tub, showers is the pits) so she’s trying real hard to keep me somewhat clean and white. Can you see which end is the front ?




A couple of days ago we went in Gudruns car for a ride out in to the woods. I don’t hear any shooting any more, so the moose hunt is all over. Still I’m not allowed to roam around by myself, because of the wolf hysteria. Mom think’s it’s all exaggerated but feel it’s better to keep quiet instead of getting into an argument with the locals ??? Doesn’t sound like mom does it ? Maybe it’s a residue from her fever last week ?






All in all it’s pretty depressing this time of the year here, not much to do, other than sitting at home twiddling your thumbs. Mom finished crocheting a scarf, and are now embroidering a typical Swedish motive, the way it looks in June. She’s also baking and filling the freezer with cookies……………not cookies for me though ?




The Swedish cows don’t seem to mind this awful weather, they’re just munching away on their hay. They have a big boss guy that are keeping watch, and he didn’t look all that friendly, so even if I did spot some “meatballs” in there I wasn’t allowed in to taste.

Besides mom said, those do not taste the same as the one you find at the stable with Karen. ……..hmmm ? I’m not sure I believe her until I get a chance to taste for myself.

Maybe next time, if the big guy will look the other way for a second.....




People around here are getting ready for the winter, and most set up feeding stations for the birds. Like this one outside heir kitchen window. Notice the giant snow shovel ? Mom remembers them well, and are so happy we’ll be leaving in eight days. Hopefully before a big snowfall.




Anna loves her flowers in her kitchen window, and every morning she has a conversation with them ??

Mom think it’s a little kooky, I think it’s cute.




The ambulance, post office, police, work agency and a bunch of other offices are located in the same building across the street. Mom always wonders who the dickens decided on pink and red paint for this building ? There’s not much activity going on there yet, but as the snow comes and the ski slopes open people from the south will be arriving in droves. Unfortunately for business it’s too warm to start up the snow canons, so all they can do is to wait for colder weather.




Time for a short walk and than a nap...............

hugs from Mom, and wet kisses to everyone from me.

Oj vilken fart det var på dej det syns inte vilket som är fram eller bak. Det skulle väl vara lite kul med vit vacker pudersnö att leka i nu när ni är i Sverige. Vilken vacker halsduk matte har gjort, blev det ingen till dej...... Vackra broderier på gång ser jag. Puss och kram till er och ha det så gott.

Vad händer med texten??????

Gissar att du skulle trivas i snön, så jag hoppas att det kommer lite så du får känna på hur det känns att snörulla och springa och ploga med nosen, om du själv vet vilket som är fram eller bak på dig... Kramis!

Klart jag ser vilket som är bak och fram på dig, jag ser ju likadan ut, hihi!
Ibland är det lättare att hålla sina åsikter för sig själv för vissa kan man ändå inte ändra på så matte väljer nog att tänka sitt om vargarna istället.
Mattes mosters hund, en mellan Pudel (död sen många år) valde en gång att rulla sig i en stor "koblädda" (som vi säger här nere) och hon var full med skit och inte luktade hon god sa matte. Hennes husse fick tvätta av det värsta innan hon skulle in i bilen för de var på semester. Tror hästens köttbullar är godare.

I also think that you mums influensa affected her, because she normally say what she tinks :) :)) which I think is 100% OK. Surprised that the building is not painted FALU red... and pink together??? who on earth planned that combination??? Sill easy to find the house once the snow comes. We bought a snow shovel last winter, have managed without one for over 40 years, but last winter we couldn't manage without one, unless we wanted to stay snowed in, in the house for many weeks. Enjoy yourself despite the boring beige weather... maybe a little snow would be fun for you. ♥♥♥

Vi känner ett par som är nyinflyttade i vargområden, dom törs/vill ine heller berätta för sina nya grannar hur glada dom är för att det finns varg! Dom har till och med sett varg ett par gånger, men det talar dom inte heller om! (För då gav sig antagligen någon tjuvjägare ut med bössan...)
Får väl se om du hinner få uppleva någon snö - pyttelite skulle väl kunna vara lite spännande i alla fall! Jag älskar snö, men matte hoppas innerligt att vi inte ska få någon alls i vinter!
Svårt att skilja på fram och bak på dig, men när du rusar iväg, DÅ är det minsann ingen konst. :)
