Yesterday I had the plesure of meeting this cute deer. I stood watching her for more than 30 minutes. What a beautiful sight.
On my walk I came this close to a deer! I feel so lucky. The wind direction was just rigth and she didn’t notice me until I tried to get closer. I am not as agile as I thought I was. (I tried to hide in the grass by jumping from the tree I was hidding back). Of course the deer fled and I stood wandering how come I wasn’t as fast and agile as I thought I was ;D.
We are so busy making decisions in our house building project that I hardly can find time to go for a walk. I am making sure that the workers have freshly baked treats every day. One day after delivering cinamon rolls I decided to go for a walk. What a beautiful morning…. if you like spiders!
I AM SO AFFRAID OF SPIDERS!!!!!!!! So it was difficult to continue my walk after seeing all those spider webs. But I maneged to put one foot infront of the other while my heart was pounding and I could hardly breathe. Semi proud of my accomplishment I returned home to make my niece a fuzzy spider. My niece LOVES spiders (can’t believe that we are related).
It took all my effort to crochet this spider! But I did it and that has to be my challenge for many years…….
Today I went for my daily walk in the forest with my neigbor’s dog. Yesterday I had seen a fox in the field and I hoped to see it again today. My wish came true in the most fantastic way. I saw the fox again (I believe that it is a female and the she has pups close by) and when she noticed me she stopped. I kneeled down and sat very quiet. The fox then turned and came straight towards me. She kept coming towards me and she came as close as less than 2 meters from me. She came even closer than want you can see on the photo. I stopped taking photos because I didn’t want to experience this unique moment through a camera lens… and the dog became unsettled as the fox came closer. I believe that she would have come even closer if the dog hadn’t barked. I feel so lucky to experience things like this. I could hardly breathe from excitement. Unfortunately I have to stay away from this part of the forest because on Friday the hunting season for male deers start…. There is a group of 4 deers in the forest. One young male and three females (and a baby deer… I heard it cry for its mum yesterday). Hopefully the little male deer that I often see won’t end up on a hunter’s dinner plate.
I am absolutely not a dog person. I AM A CAT PERSON. I love cats but this little cute dog has captured my heart. His name is Eddie and he is my neighbor’s dog. I take Eddie out for a walk every day and we enjoy the walk in the beautiful forest.
On the morning of First Christmas Day (Christmas Day for all of you who celebrate Christmas on the 25th of December) I went for a walk to my little forest lake. I brought my camera and enjoyed taking photos of everything. What a beautiful morning.
