This evening, I got my first mosquito bite of the year. It's on my left wrist bone, so it looks almost as large as it feels. It is terribly itchy, and heated. I didn't even hear the mosquito. All of a sudden, there was an itchy red welt. At least it wasn't a bee sting. I manage to avoid those most years, but the mosquito bites have plagued me for as long as I can remember. I seldom get through the season without several dozen of them. That's one of the reasons I'm fond of frogs and bats. Anything that eats mosquitoes is good.

While there is no shortage of mosquitoes, I have yet to see a single butterfly this year. Moths are beginning to congregate around the porch light at night, but their bright, sun-loving lepidoptrian cousins are conspicuous by their absence. I miss them. True, this was the first day of the season which could be called hot, so there is yet time for the butterflies to appear, but I'm beginning to worry about them.

Still not getting LJ confirmations from Juno, and LJ itself is still making me wonder who I have to blow to get a page to open around here. Between that, and Sluggo's heat-related conniptions, I'm not getting much done here. Well, I'll leave my windows open to the cool night, and sometime after midnight Sluggo ought to be cool enough for me to catch up.
