Today he had company.
They predicted lots of sunshine for today and to my big surprise the sky was cloud free when we got up this morning and went out for our morning walk. 7,5C (45,5F), no wind and not a single fly in the sky. I’m not surprised that the sky now is covered with clouds 🙂 They had by the way predicted lots of rain yesterday and we got one shower for around 10 seconds 🙂 The day was actually mostly rather sunny, something they hadn’t predicted 🙂
Anyway, it was so nice being out walking without getting bit by the lately totally crazy flies. This isn’t the worst year when it comes to biting insects but it’s not one of the better either. I feel when the bigger ones bite ant it itches a lot after those bites but I don’t even react to the smaller ones any longer. The dogs however scratches themselves so much sometimes that I wondered if they had gotten fox scabies but I found those nasty bites they were scratching on. Fox scabies isn’t that bad any longer, they get at least two shots of something and then it’s usually gone. Back in the days it was a nasty shampoo that smelled like death and was quite nasty in all ways and it had to be used more than seven weeks I think it was and it didn’t help every time either. It’s only pure breed Collies who still needs to use that, they tend to go insane if they get those shots.
We walked by the fields and met our stalker, the deerstalker again 🙂 This time he wasn’t alone, a doe was walking beside him. He wasn’t that obvious in the stalking today so I only saw him a few times before we turned and walked in to the forest. I had hopes to see some mist rising in the sunshine but I only saw it in one place and it was impossible to get a good photo of it. The sun had by then warmed up the air so much that a few flies tried to annoy me but they were still so slow that they never will try to annoy anyone ever again 🙂
I bought an older tripod for my old heavier cameras yesterday, they had sent the package by bus so I had to pick it up in a petrol station in Falköping. I picked it up and since I was in Falköping I stopped at one of the bigger grocery stores there and bought some things, like lots of minced meat for Orvar. They had some minced beef that they had lowered the price with 30% so I bought a lot of that. I think I could go back to normal dog food to be honest but his stomach is so much better now that I will keep on making his food myself until the day he doesn’t need any food any longer, because he’s worth it as they say in the commercials 🙂
The tripod is much better in some ways than the one I already had, it is much steadier than the one I already have, it’s also rather easy to make longer or shorter. It is heavier though and there’s no quick hitch so it does take some time to put it on or take it off. Well one can’t get it all in life, can one 🙂 Yes of course one can if one is filthy rich 🙂 I like this old tripod though so I’m happy with it.
I think it is time for a small nap and hopefully I’ll wake up to a sunny day, as they had predicted 🙂 🙂 🙂 If not I can always bake a bread or something or perhaps take another nap 🙂
Have a great day!
