I’ve been rather active this morning, again! That sort of scares me 🙂 We started the day as always by looking out the window and see what kind of weather we’re having. Today we had thick fog but since the sun was rising (I slept for rather long today, almost until 5:20 am) I knew it wouldn’t last for long. So I dressed as quickly as I could, leashed the dogs and picked up the camera. I wanted one of the old with me as well but since I’ve cleaned the cottage I had no idea where I had put the camera I wanted 🙂
So I loaded the old Zeiss with some B&W film and out we went. It was so nice outside, rather cool, lots of fog and very few flies around 🙂 The dogs walked around as they pleased and Albin was either right behind me or beside Sune all the time. Well he didn’t want to go our way at first and it took around 5 minutes to make him see that it was best if we all went the same way, after that there were no problems on what direction we should take 🙂 It was absolutely quiet, not a bird sang but once I could hear a lorry passing the village on the big road far away. I could also hear some cranes when we were almost at home again.
We had our breakfast and after that I drove to Falköping to buy worm pills for the dogs and aquarium fish for me and I brought the Zeiss with me too. Even I got surprised over how few people that were out in the town. The pharmacy opens at 9:30 and beside those putting up their stalls for the little market they were going to have today I think we only were about five people in the town square and even fewer on the roads around it. I found a new vintage store in the town and they were putting out things they were selling in front of the entrance and it looked so nice. I took a few photographs of that and the rest of the town square with the old camera.
I went in to the pet store as soon as it opened at 10 and I had a clear picture of what I was going to buy and of course I bought nothing of that 🙂 Instead I bought 5 Ram cichlids, 10 Neon tetra and 3 guppy. Later I’ll buy an algae eating cat-fish, there aren’t enough algae in the aquarium right now to have one. I also bought lots of dog treats, I use plenty now when Albin is learning what is right and what is wrong 🙂
I’ve realised that the electrifying tennis racket doesn’t kill wasps. I thought I killed one this morning because it smelled burned and didn’t move, suddenly it was gone and I found it on the floor between my feet and Albin. So I electrified it again and now it smoked after I was finished, guess if I got surprised when it started to walk again!! I don’t mind killing them but torturing them is to go too far. So every time another one flies in to my kitchen I use the fly killer as a tennis racket. It doesn’t kill them but they don’t stand a chance. I’ve realised that I have a pretty good backhand 🙂 I missed one and it flew up to a window upstairs and when I finally killed it I found at least seven dead ones on the window sill!!! I’ve never even noticed that they have come inside the cottage!
It is time for another walk and after that a nap I think. I’ve been sleeping badly the last week and I guess it can have something to do with the full moon. I didn’t know it was a full moon week until they told me at work.
Have a great day!
