Relaxing evening

                                         

       Knowing I needed, no we needed, to relax we went out to eat and then sat outside in the wonderful warm spring day and drank a glass of wine.  I could smell the pear tree.  The deer, birds and squirrels came over to eat.  It was lovely.  Filling the sky's were dozens of dragonflies.  I will have some great subjects for photo shoots this year.  All of a sudden, mosquitoes by the dozen also filled the air and like hungry little vampires attacked us without mercy.  We ran to the house.  So much for our lovely night outside.  But it was lovely and relaxing and we needed it badly.  Wouldn't it be lovely if the bugs followed spring by at least a month.  Oh, one of the deer is obviously nursing.  Soon I will have new babies to take pictures of.  Soon I hope to plant flowers unless I am at my MIL's

    Tomorrow I am going to an auction.  I hope to get some lovely items at some lovely prices.  Wish me well.  Have a great weekend all.

the best stuff i have found is deep with 40% of the stuff that works to kill them,(sorry cant remember the name) i can get cans at walmart for 1.97 for a huge can. was always sending it over to zach when he was in iraq and he said it really worked well. I have tried the skin so soft but the mosquitoes ate me up even more lol

I use a product called "Jungle Juice" I buy at camping stores. Cream for the skin and a pump spray for clothing. The little vampires want nothing to do with it. <grin> I LOVE sitting outdoors at twilight.

those little dominickers are major pests, aren't they?     A nice, quiet, relaxing evening was just what the both of you needed.    Glad you got at least part of one.

Spring has made her entrance here as well. I finally had a chance to clean out my flower beds and get them ready for planting. I can't wait for my garden to bloom again. (Hugs) Indigo

Ooooo!  I hate mosquitoes!  Don't have them as much where we live as there is no standing waterat our house, but they are still out there and the city sprays starting every spring.  Glad you guys had a nice relaxing evening and enjoyed yourself.  Hope you had good luck at the auction.  De ;)
