Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
As some of you know I have “created” my private backyard “cafe”. It’s not a real cafe, because I don’t sell anything, I don’t even have a menu,- it’s just a cozy place in my backyard to spend nice afternoons, or even some evenings alone or together with my family and friends 😊. I actually spend most of the time in my backyard together with someone, not very often alone 😊.
I’m, obviously, not the only one that think this place is cozy because I have family and friends dropping by here now and then during the week as well as weekends 😊.
I have put up some lights and candles in my backyard too, something that’s creates it’s to a even nicer place with a good atmosphere during the evenings 🕯💡.
And it’s good to have something to offer from my freezer like homemade muffins or cinnamon rolls or something else to offer my guests that’s dropping by 🥯.
But it’s not always it’s “suits” to serve cakes and cookies, special not after a warm summer day 🌞. So baked potatoes are a tasty and delicious meal too make, easy too, and “spiced” up with some ingredients like bacon, corn, some salad, dressing, butter, it’s actually a tiny meal.
So last time I had guests in my backyard I actually served baked potatoes together with different ingredients 🥔. Of course it takes a bit time to bake the potatoes in the oven, and even longer in my mini oven 😅. But then it’s just to enjoy for example the beach and the ocean in the meantime, or just the good company from family or friends 😊.
Like I mention in an other text, it’s a bit of mosquitos in my backyard, and that can be a challenge. I have tried different kinds of things to keep the mosquitos away, and in general it helps for a tiny while. But then they are back again 😳🦟.
So I used Google, because I don’t like the company of the mosquitoes to much, I don’t think anyone actually do,- and there I did find something that, some “tips and advice” so fare, has kept the mosquitos away for more then just a tiny while 🦟.
It’s a very easy tips and tricks,- it’s coffee that is used in a coffee maker and barbecue chips that are used on the grill. Put the coffee grounds in foil and put it in an ovenproof dish, place the tray on top, and light it. The mosquito flies away because it does not like the smell. And they are not coming back before the coffee ground is burned up either. And it’s burn for a while too. Of course it’s depends of how big the “mix” is 😊.
I can’t say the smell from this “mix” is the most “flattering” smell I know, at the same time as it reminds me about Norway and barbecue at the beach. And it’s also so much better then be bitten by mosquitos 😳😊🦟. And the mosquitos don’t actually create a very cozy atmosphere either, more like a very annoying atmosphere actually.
Just a tiny tips to you from me,- if you want to try to keep the mosquitos away and don’t want to use to much “poison” from different sprays of any kind to keep them away 😊.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡
See you soon 😊
My backyard it’s become a very cozy place where friends and family likes to drop by for some food, a cozy atmosphere, good conversations and great company (me 😅) 😊. Unfortunately the mosquitos also like my backyard a tiny bit to much, but I think I have found a solution and mix to use to keep them away for a while now. At least it’s function so fare 😊🦟.
