Last nights moon. If You click on the photo to make it bigger You can see the dark spot on the moon too. I´ve almost never been able to get a photo like that of the moon before I got my new camera.
I can´t remember when I was this tired as when i woke up this morning. I woke up at five am as usual and unfortunally my dogs noticed it. So I had to get up to let them out in to the garden. I went straight back to bed when they all had come in again and slept for an hour more. I was as tired as before but got up since I usually gets a terrible headache if I sleep to long in the morning.
I was so tired that I fumbeled with my tooth brush and dropped it so it fell down in to the cat littre tray. So I grabbed my spare one and did the same thing once again :-) :-) You would think that I by then would have realised that it would have been better to get out of the bathroom, don´t You? But noo, naturally I fumbled once again and now there´s also a jar with hair gel in that littre tray. Well, it´s time to clean that littre tray anyway so it will all go to the dump. I simply refuses to move those things out of there now :-) :-) :-)
About that getting immune of the itching mosquitoe bites it´s said that back in the days the Swedish Sami indigenous population every summer went out and slept naked for one night so they really got bitten by mosquitoes and midges. After that they had no problems with itching bites (but I do wonder how they felt after that night with or without any itching :-) ). I´m not sure that´s such a good idea to test though. It happens that mooses and deers dies every summer just because they couldn´t flee from mosquitoes and midges. They more or less got poisoned to death by all the bites.
It´s a cool, cloudy morning without any wind at all. The swallows are flying around my cottage eating as many mosquitoes as they can before the long move south. I could see how at least hundred swallows attacked a magpie that sat on a barn roof when we took our morning walk. I´ve never seen this behaviour this late in the season before. They have no young ones in the nests and the magpie just sat there minding its own buissness. The poor magpie had to flee to a big tree on the farm next door.
Goldenrod. This is the European relative to the Canadian Goldenrod. It´s not as invasive and smaller too.
I´m just waiting for the grocery store in Gudhem to open up now. I do need atleast one new tooth brush, but I think it´s best to buy two just in case :-) I´ve already finished one pot of tea (and that makes me realise that I have forgotten to take any photos of my pots! I´ll get some for tomorrows blog instead). I´m still tired but I won´t be dangerous in the traffic anyway. It´ll probably only be me on the roads anyway :-)
Have a great day now!
