It rained quite a lot yesterday evening and night, still I don’t think much went down especially far into the ground because much of the vegetation looks rather desperate now. My lilac hedge looks as if it would die now but I know I won’t be that lucky 🙂 It was still rather humid when we went out for our morning walk and the clouds didn’t go away until after we had come home again and even if it was rather warm the flies didn’t annoy us that much to my surprise.
Nova is much better now but it takes lots of persuasion to make her come to me when she knows more medicine is on the way. It says on the bottle with ear drops that I must clean her outer ear before giving her the ear drops, so how deep goes the outer ear? Is it just the big floppy thing but not into her skull? She needs to be dry before I drop them down and I really don’t want to push a cotton swab down especially far, who knows what I might push in to her ear if I do.
I sat here in the kitchen a few minutes before I was going to bed when suddenly Albin screamed out in pain. I didn’t understand what had happened at first but then I saw that he refused to stand on his right back foot. The poor guy had been stung by a wasp and he was inconsolable, it took almost twenty minutes until he stopped and then his entire body just shivered. I looked for quite some time after that wasp but just couldn’t find it so we all went to bed when he finally calmed down.
I did however find the wasp this morning, I took my shoes, turned them upside down and shook them hard and out fell a dead wasp. Guess if I’m glad I did that 🙂 Now it’s war! I need to find all those wasp nests nearby and just eradicate them from this earth! They do a lot of good those wasps but when they start stinging us it’s time to show who’s the boss around here. Until I find those nests I’ll use the electric tennis racket to keep as many of them as possible out of my home.
It is time for a pot of tea and then a nap I think. Perhaps we’ll take a walk first because they predict rain will start falling rather soon. I guess today is a dvd day.
Have a great day!
