I would like to go out and mow the lawn but most people are still asleep I think and wouldn’t appreciate that I actually do take care of my lawn every now and again 🙂 We’ve been up since 4:30 this morning so for me it feels like we’ve been up half the day now at 8 🙂
We never got any rain yesterday and today the sun is shining and it will be pleasantly warm. Not what they predicted yesterday though 🙂 I had hoped that the rain would be just enough to keep me from mowing the lawn and watering my pots but today I’ll have to do both. I’ll only mow the parts that need it though, it has been so dry lately that most of the grass haven’t grown at all. I guess that the rain that has fallen was just enough to keep the vegetation alive.
It wasn’t sunny when we were out walking early this morning tough. Half the sky that I could see was clear blue without a cloud and the other half was one big grey mass of cloud. Guess on what side the sun rose 🙂 It took an hour or so for the cloud to move away from the sun but I can still see it now several hours after we came inside again. I might actually be able to do so all day because we are on the edge of the low pressure that passed here yesterday and it won’t move that much today they say.
I’ve just put in new batteries in my electric tennis racket fly swatter and now it smells like fried flies here in my kitchen 🙂 I still have flies indoors and that’s because they follow us inside when we walk through the mosquito net covered door openings. I must confess that I do enjoy killing them with the tennis racket 🙂 It works great on flies but wasps tends to survive the electric shock so those I try to just catch and release outside again, they eat lots of flies so I let them outside now during summer. In autumn however, when they are irritated and stings for no reason I’ll kill them too.
It is time to continue to water pots in the garden. I usually just pour a little in to the pot the first time so that the soil gets a bit moist, next time I water them (after half an hour or so) the soil will be able to keep much more water. If it is too dry it’ll just go right through.
Have a great day!
