Yes, the weekend starts today for me and most Swedes because tomorrow is our national day. Most people don’t know why we celebrate it and to be honest most of us don’t celebrate it at all. Not that we don’t love our country but we aren’t especially used to do it, we haven’t celebrated it for especially long. But more about that tomorrow.
I was planning on going to Falköping after work but then I remembered that today is the day the high schools start their summer vacation in this county and those that graduate this is a day of celebration and that usually means the roads are jammed and drunk kids can be found everywhere. Lots of people will also be in the stores buying food for the entire weekend so I stopped by the grocery store close to work instead. I was just going to buy lots of rice and fish because all dogs are now a bit wobbly in their stomachs. It’s summer and lost of awful things that can but perhaps not should be eaten is out there 🙂
The fish was frozen so I thought that this would be a good day to also buy ice cream. I packed one rice bag at the bottom of the paper bag, then I placed the fish on top of it, I placed the ice cream (four packages) on the frozen fish and the second rice bag over the ice cream. Then I placed a t-shirt and a newspaper above it all. It takes 30 minutes to drive home but for once the ice cream hadn’t melted when I arrived here at home 🙂
It looks like that tick repellant spray works very well! So far I’ve picked one tick in four days, before I picked at least four from each dog every single day. The spray is expensive but it’s really worth it! It seems to stay on good too because even if Sune takes a bath in any creek as often as he can he still have no ticks. They should have called me from the pet store today to say that the light ramp had arrived and that I could get it on Saturday but so far no telephone call. I’ll drive down there on Saturday anyway because I’ll most likely need anything anyway 🙂
My dogs woke me up at 4 am yesterday morning and there was no use in trying to go to bed again, I wouldn’t have fallen sleep anyway. So we went out for an early morning walk. I had hoped to see a fox or a badger but no luck unfortunately. But we did a roe deer buck, I thought he would be a nice thing to show here and just when I took that photo a doe came running from the right so he started to run too 🙂 I put that photo in my National Geographic album instead 🙂 I’ll try to place a working link here: Deers and here’s to my entire album, there are a few photos I don’t think You’ve seen. I hope both links will work.
It’s time for a pot of tea and something to eat. I’m not really hungry but I know I will be later on 🙂
Have a great day!
