It is time to buy fish!
The heat is gone and now we’ll have lower temperatures for a while, I do hope this wasn’t the summer we’ll get this year 🙂 I remember summers when the temperature barely reached 20 C (68 F) the entire summer. One midsummer we had 8 C (46 F) and we had 12 C (54 F) on New Years even that same year 🙂 🙂 🙂 I rented a cottage back then and had to find fire wood in the middle of summer because the cottage didn’t have any electricity 🙂
But even if it is cooler today it’s still to warm indoors for Hector. He walks around outside trying to find the coolest spot, but he walks away after a while since the mosquitoes bites him all the time. They appear as soon as the sun doesn’t shine or is covered by clouds now. A more aggressive mosquito has moved south these last years and when our old kinds circle around for a while to see if its safe to fly down and bite, this one doesn’t care if it is safe. It just lands and bites, it hurts too! But this is nothing compared to an area further north. They have so many mosquitoes that they can’t go outside without getting hundreds of mosquitoes drinking their blood within seconds. It’s so bad that the government since three years back helps them to kill off all mosquitoes.
I saw that there was lots of mosquito larvae in my pond now so I think I’ll drive by the pet store tomorrow so I can buy some fish to put in the pond. I doubt it will do much difference since there already are so many of them flying around but then I at least have done what I can to reduce the numbers 🙂 The bites doesn’t seem to bother me as much though, I tend to become immune towards the itching after a while when enough mosquitoes have bitten me, it’s not the same for either my dogs or cats though.
It is time to start making dinner for the rest of the week, I eat dinner at work every day so it is easier to make for the entire week at the same time. I’ll make a cup of coffee as well, I’m still a bit tired since the late Saturday night 🙂
Have a great day!
