The weather craziness continues. I needed headlights this morning to drive DH to the Park N Ride. Apparently somewhere just north of us, some people were getting slammed by a storm. I was hoping for a just a bit of rain, but I can't count on it and needed to go out and water the plants before leaving for Thursday morning stitching.
Normally I love watering. But not any more. Because the dreaded Asian tiger mosquitoes are back! Good photo and their history here.
These bloodsuckers have no respect for daylight hours like our native mosquitoes do. If I stand outside without bug repellent on, I can have 20 of them on me before I can count to 60. I don't see how we can ever not have them here as our gutters (on 150 townhouses) go underground. And some people don't ever clean their gutters. I make certain to clean birdbath at least once a week. Flower pot saucers get emptied. Etc.
Now I have to put on bug spray just to water. Can't even just sit on the steps for the two minutes it takes me to shuck a few ears of corn.
I detest, loathe, and abominate these tiny flying, biting voracious wee beasties.
The good news. I should finish Constantinople either today or tomorrow.
The bad news. I bought a skein of #3 white pearl to finish my Ravish Me canvas and now I can't find it. LOL
