Some of the weeds I see are very pretty.
It rained again last night and it hatched at least a billion more skeeters. We carved for a while today…you have to be careful and not do the Minnesota Wave with your carving knife. The summertime Minnesota Wave is when you take one hand and wave it in front of your face quickly followed by your other hand. It makes a breeze which may or may not drive the skeeters away from your face…or flying up your nose. Ever tasted a skeeter? One time I swallowed one and it gagged me and made me cough until I nearly threw up….now that was possibly too much info. Those little suckers can fly around a long time.
Some kind of Thistle possibly Spiny Plumeless Thistle a Noxious Weed.
It was a noisy day outside, between swatting at mosquitoes…me saying well a thousand less will hatch…a thousand more…etc… then someone delivered dirt to the township road…that truck roared in and then backed up to dump his load of dirt…then the helicopter was spraying the potato field across from us.
I am bummed out. The Persids are very active the next few nights. The skeeters make it impossible to go outside for more than a few minutes after dark.
Christmas Ornament count: 10 finished! (65 to go)
