Leather shoes

Last night we had a light fall of snow, although more snow is not forecast for the next few days, temperatures will remain below freezing.

I have not been doing so much this week, but Teres has made Kelly a nice pair of reindeer leather shoes.

She cut out several shapes from the leather, including two reindeer

and sewed the parts together

to form some really comfortable shoes for Kelly

My mum passed away last weekend  and so I will shortly be heading off to England for a couple of weeks, and will be unlikely to be posting here for a while.

Winter isn’t far away now.

No pictures this week I’m afraid and not so much to report.

Temperatures are well below freezing at night and not much above freezing during the day.  There is no snow at the moment but today I have changed the tyres on the car from summer to winter tyres which have metal studs in The treads.

On the 1st December we move to our new house and I have much work to do inside the house before Christmas.

Get the shovel out

I haven’t written for a couple of weeks because I have been to visit my mum and dad as my mum is very ill now (it’s not so easy living hear and having no brothers or sisters to help to care of my parents back in England).

The first snow fell here while I was in England (but has since melted), and temperatures are below freezing at night and not much above freezing during the day, so there is now ice on the lakes.

Yesterday I had a lorry load of……..forgotten the English word for it, but it is called filling if I translate from Swedish.  It is crushed stone (a by-product from the local gold mine)

gravel floor

which I have to now shovel in to the new outbuilding and once I have compressed it down, it will be like concrete.

There have also been some fantastic displays of northern lights recently.  Here are a couple of pictures I took this evening just after it got dark.
