I hate them Mozzie Flies

The rain has been good

AND bad..

It's been good for some of our plants and our lawn, and it's filled up the lakes and reservoirs, but now our 5 acres look like wild terrain with all the overgrown weeds and with the tall grass comes chiggers. BLEH. And MOSQUITOES!

It's like they've come on with a vengeance, and i can't go outside in my shorts for 5 seconds, literally, without getting bitten somewhere or another. *sigh*

And it's not like if I'm out there longer than 5 seconds, I don't put on a shirt with long sleeves or long pants.. THEY GET MY HANDS INSTEAD, them little b**gers.

So, along with the usual protection we've had to rope in the help of a Mozzie Killer thingy, and trusty ol' Chiggerex.

I wouldn't mind the mozzie flies so much if there weren't all these diseases lurking in them stinging pests, and if I didn't get such horrific itchy welts! *woe am I*

On a more positive note, here's 4 of Momma's 6 kitties, posing for me a couple of days ago. :P

Deuteronomy 32:2

"Let my teaching fall like rain
and my words descend like dew,
like showers on new grass,
like abundant rain on tender plants."

Wow I didn't know the mosquito problem was even worse over in Texas! Cute kitties -- they really looked as if they were posing professionally for you :)

I ten to think Northern Ontario when it comes to pesky bugs.
