Mosquitoes at Sunset

We've had a pleasant relaxing day. We haven't been out anywhere. I did answer a couple of emails and cook dinner. I haven't even turned on the TV. My better half has watched sports, read and even had a nap. I've mostly sat on the deck catching up with my reading. I read the newspaper and did the jumbles, stretched out in the swing and just looked up at the trees and the patches of blue shining through. I've had the ceiling fan on and enjoyed my day off. But now the sun has set and the mosquitoes have run me inside. It hasn't rained in several days so I don't know where the mosquitoes came from. So here I am mylotting. Haven't answered any comments yet. I knew if I started on those I wouldn't submit any discussion. So, how was your day? Was it restful or exciting?

@RubyHawk I usually get at least one phone call a day as my sister calls me daily in most cases! Sometimes she is busy past 6 pm and doesn't call as I am getting ready for bed and she is afraid I may go to sleep, (I have been to bed at 6 pm at times!)and she doesn't want to wake me!

I'm surprised that with all the rain we've had here in Florida that we aren't completely engulfed in mosquitoes fright now. They must be aggressively spraying at night to keep the mosquitoes at bay, because I haven't seen any at all, which is unusual. Either that, or our bat population suddenly tripled! haha

Sunday was a busy day as it turned out. I did some things around the house after my morning fitness walk, then got an email notice that I was hired as an extra for a commercial in Portland and had to respond with a photo taken then, then was submitting some poems to our state association contest online (may have messed that up). Mosquitoes sort of leave me alone, but love Anne and she has quite a skin reaction to those bites.

No, I don't use any poisons of any kind. If they were a bother I would get a citronela candle and burn it. I don't believe that's the right spelling. You can also get a blue light that attracts mosquitoes. We aren't out on the deck after dark anyway.

I hate mosquitoes! One summer I took yeast pills, and not a one touched me that whole summer. I was excited to go to church this morning. I hadn't been in months. Since my sister and brother-in-law made a special trip here to sing at the service I really hoped I'd be well enough to go, and I was.
