We have the kind of weather here today that doesn´t look especially inviting, but that is rather nice when You are out walking in it. It´s rather cool and cloudy with some fog visible in the distance. The wind is weak so the few mosquitoes that sill hangs around follows like devoted pets.
By the way, did You know that mosquitoes that carries the awful malaria bacteria also gets infected by it? I read about that in this mornings paper. But the mosquito has a different kind of immune system than we humans have. When it gets infected the immune system creates a special kind of bloodcells that kills the bacteria. It doesn´t kill the bacteria that it transfers to us unfortunately.
I´ll pick some leafs and other things later today so I can show You how to make a wreath. This is the old time way to do it, now days lots of people uses glue guns and perhaps no leafs at all. I´ve seen a really cool one made of only chestnuts.
It will stay cool all day today so I better go out to the wood shed to bring in some more firelogs to the stove. It´s no use starting a fire now, but it will be nice to have one when the night comes.
Have a great day now!
