Ticks and propagation. Well not propagation of ticks of course :-) :-)
It´s going to be a bit cooler today and the wind is fairly strong but they seem to have missed that when they did the forecast 🙂 🙂 Talking about winds, I always write that we seldom have tornadoes (we call them a tromb) here and if we do they are very weak. Well I was a bit wrong. Yesterday several rather strong flew over the northern parts of Sweden and they haven´t seen that many trees on the ground before. 15 000 homes lost the electricity as well. No one died but one person got badly injured when he got hit by a tree. Still these were not even close to the ones on the american continent but very unusual for us.
We went down to the creek yesterday afternoon because I was testing something that we use against mosquitoes on our skin. It showed it not only worked on mosquitoes the forest flies refused to land on my ears and nose as well 🙂 🙂 Normally I avoid the creek during summer because of all ticks that just waits to find someone to feed on.
I knew I would regret it if we went there and so I did. I´m so glad that I check myself for ticks every day because I found on on my scrotum! Not a nice place to find one!! But I got it early and I don´t think it got the chance to give me any infections even though it was stuck rather good. My dogs also got some and I hope I have removed them all now. But appart from that it was so nice to get in to the shade under the trees by the creek.
We also walked on another road leading out of the village later yesterday evening, I thought it would be nice for You all to see something else from the village area. My friends says it´s wrong to call this a village because the houses and cottages is to far away from each other. They usually is in clumps of three and far between. Long ago it was very different but the old castle owners let the homes fall apart if they couldn´t find a new tenant.
It´s time to finish my pot with tea and perhaps I´ll make a sandwich or two. I´m out of paprika so I´ll have to go to the grocery store later today. Well I do need more things than paprika otherwise I would have stayed at home 🙂 🙂 🙂 Have a great day now!
