Summertime Visitors

Remember how I blogged about there being a ridiculous amount of rain a few months ago?  Well, now we haven't had any rain to speak of for the last month and a half or so.  I suppose it's too much to ask for something in-between?  At least it's good pool weather.

While hubby worked on the garage last Sunday, I cut the lawn weeds shrubbery that had managed to grow despite the weather.  The wild life like it either way...2 fawns are already getting used to our yard being a destination and this attractive-looking (and also smelly) varmint has also put us on the "list".  We were very glad Magic was already in the house!

Tonight, I was planning on taking my spinning wheel out on the patio and enjoying a very nice evening. However, the skunk is back.  In a way, it's kind of funny.  You see, my daughter was out front with both her dog and mine when I went out to hang out, too.  At that point, I just quietly called for the dogs to come in (they did) and DD just looked at me in bewilderment.  I suggested she turn around so that she could see the skunk that was about 40 feet behind her.  I'm half thinking that maybe I should call one of those nuisance wildlife trappers to come take it away.

Speaking of the garage, the walls are done (insulated, drywalled and painted).  This weeks hubby-do list includes running gas line for heat and water lines for the washing area.  Equipment is slated to arrive around the end of August.  I have much paperwork and preparation to do!
