It’s getting quiet.
I bought a tick repellent spray the other day, it could be sprayed on the trousers instead of the skin which I thought was a good idea since the last spray against flies and mosquitos gave me eczema. I’ll never use it again, it smells like a really bad cheap perfume one usually buys when abroad on vacation 🙂 It’s awful and the stench is impossible to remove, not from my trousers but from my cottage. It makes me sneeze and I think it’s melting my brain too 🙂
We were supposed to get sunshine today but it’s been cloudy all the time, it’s warm though and the humidity is high and it’s just nasty 🙂 I think thunder is near because the lights have been blinking quite often and the flies are behaving crazy too. We did get a lot more flies after this rain but it’s still fewer than normal but I’m pretty sure that’ll change. Few mosquitos still though.
Hector has gotten this idea that he must jump over the fence at least one time every day now. I don’t know exactly what it is he want to do up by the farm next door but he runs there as soon as he can. I had blocked the hole in the hedge but he found a new one. I just can’t let him stay in the garden any longer if I’m not out there too 🙂 No one gets angry when he’s walking around by himself and he doesn’t do anything he’s not allowed to but I’m afraid that one day someone will drive too fast and hits him with the car.
Very few birds are singing any longer now, it’s time to wrap things together because most of them won’t get a chance to lay any more eggs anyway. There’s simply no reason for the male birds to put any energy in to singing any more. Blackbirds still sing in the tops of the trees and the smaller birds that will stay over winter sort of chirps too but they always do that. It’s still two months until autumn comes but those that will fly south may not have that much time before they move.
It’s time to make a pot of tea and something to eat. Only one more day before vacation comes 🙂
Have a great day!
