I’m always nervous before the annually vehicle inspection but this time it was horrible, I sat and shivered just before I had to drive in 🙂 🙂 I have no idea why I react like that but have been since the first time I had to go there. I can’t even say that anything bad happened when I was a kid and followed my mother to inspect whatever car we had. Everything went well though and now I won’t have to do it again until next year 🙂
It sounds as if all my neighbors have mowed their lawn today and I guess I should have done it too since the sun is shining and it’s just enough warm outside but I really don’t want to do it after being at work in the heat. I’ll do it tomorrow instead unless it is raining. The grass hasn’t grown that much since last time even if we had torrential rain on Wednesday. It does look much greener though and the weeds in the flower beds started to grow really fast 🙂
I drove via Falköping on my way home after work today. I needed some goldfish for the second water barrel I have. If I don’t have any fish in the barrels they’ll be mosquito paradise and I think we have enough mosquitos as it is since many comes from the bog. I just walked in to the pet store and said I need a few goldfish and the owner said ” Are You sure You don’t want Gold Ide instead?” So of course I wanted that instead 🙂 Ide (Leuciscus idus link to Google on Gold Ide) ) is a fish we have here in Europe and like the goldfish it lives in cold waters. I remember when I was a kid and went to the big aquarium we had in my town and I always went to see the Gold Ide first.
To be honest, these are more brass colored but that’s close enough 🙂 These five won’t leave a single water living insects larvae alive 🙂 I’m not sure if they are jumpers though so perhaps I should buy some extra mosquito net to cover the surface with just in case. When I was a kid out fishing the Ide was the fish I mostly caught. It is edible and rather tasty says those who has eaten it but the bones in it are terrible. Now days rarely anyone would eat it but it was quite common back when we were poorer in this country.
The owner also told me about a dog food that I could try on Albin. It is expensive but still cheaper than boiling the food myself and it is for hyper allergic dogs. It is made from Salmon and dried antarctic krill. The thing I do wonder about is the sugar beet pulp, I think Albin has reacted to fibers from beet root but I think I’ll try it and see how things go. As it is I’m not sure he gets all that he needs when I do the food myself.
It is time to do something to eat and today I’ll have meatball sandwiches with beetroot salad and tomatoes, plus some cheese I think 🙂
Have a great day!
