I now have a swelling on my upper arm which is 15 x 15cm (4 x 4 inches) big. It is bright red, hot and itch insanely 🙂 It is like having a huge mosquito bite 🙂 I think it helped that I woke up several times during the night when scratching it. I place an ice pack over it every now and again but it only helps as long as I keep it there and to be honest, the cold makes it hurt instead 🙂 This is what normally happened back in the days directly after I was stung, not three days later!
There were some clouds in the sky when we went out on our morning walk but I could see that the clouds were flying in the right direction so we would get plenty of sunshine for most of our walk. Just as the clouds were going to let the sun shine new clouds on much lower heights flew in and covered the sun so we never saw it! Turns out it was fog clouds so it became a rather nice walk anyway 🙂 It got rather thick for a short while but mostly it was just enough. I managed to get some foggy photos with my Hasselblad camera too because the fog stayed a few minutes after we had come home too. Now the sun shines and a wind blows nicely.
I have the kitchen door open and the electric tennis racket by my side. Every time a wasp comes close to the door I start practicing my tennis swings 🙂 I’m not sure the electricity does much damage to them but my swing certainly do 🙂 The wasps were three weeks early this year so I wonder if they’ll die out three weeks early too or just keep on going until it’s too cold to continue? The flies didn’t seem to bother that they started too early so I doubt the wasps will either.
I cleaned out the dog yard yesterday and today it’s time to do the garage. I bought some extra warm blankets to the dogs since they tend tobe more in the garage than in the dog house or dog yard. There’s no use in buying the kind of dog bed that is like a small cave, I hope You understand what I mean. The dogs will only chew them to pieces anyway. So I was thinking if I could find some wooden boxes that I can line with fabric so it gets cozy in there. I know they weren’t in the warm dog house last winter when it was as coldest so this could at least keep them reasonable warm if they used what I’ll make them. They will of course chew these beds to pieces too but it will at least take longer before they’ll be successful 🙂
It is time for a pot of tea, I’ve filled one of the dog toys with treats so now they’ll be occupied for a few minutes. Sune still really doesn’t get it, he usually tries to bring the thing out into the garden where he puts it on the lawn and looks at it 🙂 He is however really fast in stealing bits and pieces that Albin gets out of the toy so both are quite happy anyway 🙂
Have a great day!
