The new mosquito nets are up and not a second to late, one of those nasty deer flies bit me in my elbow just when I was putting them up. It didn’t hurt that much but oh how the itching drives me crazy 🙂 I know I shouldn’t scratch there but it’s impossible not to 🙂 We’re having much the same weather as we did yesterday but the clouds are thicker, yesterday we could see the sun through the clouds but not today. Doesn’t matter really, it’s warm and that’s enough for me 🙂
I’m freezing though but that’s just because I woke up from a three-hour nap! I didn’t even know I was that tired 🙂 We were up early today, a bit earlier than I had expected so I guess it was just to expect that I would be tired. I drove to town as soon as they opened the stores. First I went to the super market and bought some food. I was thinking of getting some bacon but happened to drive just after the slaughter lorry and saw some of the pigs. I didn’t get any dinner at all after that, only milk and müsli.
After that I drove to the pharmacy to get some hydrogen peroxide. Hector has gotten a hot spot and I called the vet but their answering machine just told me they didn’t have any phone hours today and that the day was fully booked. I really don’t care if it is vacation time for them too, they should never close the phone hours! Also, the message said that if there was an emergency one should call the animal hospital in Gothenburg and I can tell You that much that hell freezes over before I do that even if this had been an emergency.
Then I continues to the low price store and finally found some mosquito nets (they didn’t have any at the super market and only four packages left in this place) I also bought a coffee machine, the old one is long gone and even if I rarely drink coffee it’s nice to be able to do it from time to time. At the moment I’m drinking instant coffee and that’s just not the same even if it is brown and contains caffeine 🙂
The last thing I did was to buy three goldfish, the fantail kind. To be honest, the fantails are actually deformed fish with two cadual fins (most often grown together at the top) and would never make it in the wild, normally I never support breeding of something that deformed but I just can’t help it, I like those fantails :-). Well it was actually two fantails and a regular goldfish with extra long tail and they are now happily living in my second water barrel. May they grow big by eating all insect larvaes that grows up in that water barrel 🙂
It’s time to take another walk with my dogs. hopefully the wind will be strong enough to blow away most of the flies, unfortunately that also means most butterflies blow away too. We have lots of them here now, especially those blu small ones that are my favorites. I guess one can’t get it all, if I don’t want the annoying and biting flies around me I guess it isn’t more than fair that I won’t have any butterflies either 🙂
Have a great day!
