The Cottage by the Cranelake, we're still alive.

  The kitchen door is open and I can almost only hear the dogs barking on the other side of the field. Every now and again they quiet down and that’s when I can hear the birds sing. I can’t understand how their closest neighbors can stand hearing those dogs all day long. It has […]

The Cottage by the Cranelake, we're still alive.

  Nasty cold again during the night but they say it’ll turn now. I can feel it in the air now this afternoon, the wind isn’t that biting cold as it has been lately. Still I would lie if I said it even was close to lukewarm 🙂 The day has mostly passed fairly quickly […]

The Cottage by the Cranelake, we're still alive.

  It has been sunny all day and actually a bit warmer than predicted but I doubt anyone could feel it because of the nasty cold wind that has been blowing. Tomorrow will be sunny as well but pretty chilly. No use in looking any further since they have so big problems to even come […]

The Cottage by the Cranelake, we're still alive.

  I think I would lie if I said we’re having sunshine this morning but the clouds are so thin that the sun shines through anyway. It was a bit chilly when we went out for our morning walk but there was at least no wind, now it’s warmer but the wind blows again. Weaker […]

The Cottage by the Cranelake, we're still alive.

  It has been a glorious spring day here, it reached  17C (62,6F) so naturally it was a work day. Sunshine most of the day and a weak but nice wind. I can’t complain about working though because the day passed fast and we had one of those washing things for customers all morning day […]

The Cottage by the Cranelake, we're still alive.

  The weather predictions said full sunshine all day so I wasn’t the least surprised when heavy clouds flew in when we were out on our morning walk, I wasn’t the least surprised when it started snowing either 🙂 🙂 To be honest, it lasted only a minute or so and it did melt as […]

The Cottage by the Cranelake, we're still alive.

  We never even came close to have that sunny morning they predicted about yesterday but it was fairly warm outside when we took our morning walk. We walked in to the village and there the wind caught us but even though it did feel a bit chilly it still was quite ok. I couldn’t […]

The Cottage by the Cranelake, we're still alive.

  Time passed fast at work today, I was busy all the time. The thing is that I can’t say what it was I painted 🙂 🙂 🙂 I remember the colors but not the things 🙂 🙂 🙂 Now some of them popped up in my brain but just a few. I guess time […]

The Cottage by the Cranelake, we're still alive.

The photos will be a mix of both old and new today.  The Christmas commercials have started on tv and I’ve noticed that one of our telephone companies use the same ones for the third or fourth year i a row. I think that if they now will torture until Christmas with these commercials they […]

NOC SENSEI

E’ profondamente riduttivo pensare alla cultura giapponese senza compiere lo sforzo di guardare questa realtà al netto delle distorsioni con le quali questo mondo giunge sino a noi. Vi sono infatti aspetti poco conosciuti e spesso letti con similitudini rispetto al modello occidentale che rischiano di renderne una visione falsata. Con una popolazione di circa […]

The Cottage by the Cranelake, we're still alive.

  Much the same weather today as previous days but with the difference that the sun almost managed to shine through the clouds where they had a weak spot 🙂 It has been drizzling too but just for a short while. We were just about to go out to the bog when the hunters arrived […]

The Cottage by the Cranelake, we're still alive.

We’re having the same weather we’ve had lately,cloudy and warmish. Fog in the late evening and early morning  and very little wind. Today I don’t mind at all, I’m not even cranky that it will continue like this because anything is better than real winter 🙂 🙂 The day has passed fairly quick, I’ve been […]

The Cottage by the Cranelake, we're still alive.

  Today passed faster even if it is a Tuesday.  Much the same weather but fog started to build up on my way home from work. It looked really beautiful but it was so dark that I would have had to use an expensive Hasselblad camera to be able to get a good photo 🙂 […]
