It's been an endless summer. It's still beautiful, hot, and dry.
Cobwebs decorate my house and I have no plans of having a Halloween party. Cobwebs are a sign of neglect. But hey! Who freaking cares? Check out Bill of the Birds post today, written by Birdchick. Get the message. You might laugh until you cry.
Why am I talking about cobwebs? We have friends from Maryland arriving on Friday for a weekend of golf and fun. I really don’t want them to see the cobwebs, dead flies on windowsills, or toilets that need cleaning. The dust that covers every inch of living space here includes short, black & white dog hairs and whatever else floats around this house. Hey, they’re men. Maybe I’ll just put fresh linens on their beds and be done with it. HA! I will make the bathrooms shiny and pristine.
I probably won’t be posting for a few days due to sleep deprivation and having a lot to do. Bam Bam had his testicles whacked off today so we have Mr. Biggins for a night or two. We’ll share a back bedroom. Me and Mr. Biggins, with his 25-foot long legs that will push me, inch by inch, to the edge of the bed by 2 am.
Here are some photos and some of them include frustrating captions. Bear with me?
Determined to get out of the house, I drove to the pond to see the Egret. No Egret, but I thought I saw a sandpiper! Naaaaa…
Oh, boy. What’s this? TRASH. Were these photos worth standing in baking sun and feeling sweat drip into my burning eyes?
I’m trying not to think about them leaving. After five months, I have loved and cared for them every day. I hope they remember that my house is their house and return next spring. Sigh… I have taken numerous photos that I'll treasure and share whenever I need a lift.
Long-term residents include clumsy juveniles practicing their feeding skills. Their summer pink feet are pretty.During the weekend I got fed up and impatient. For a long time I let the pond ooze with overgrown plants to provide shade for the fish in boiling heat. I missed seeing them, and like a crazed mad woman, I forgot about my painful back and used the large net and my hands to rip out the overgrown celery plants. The water lilies have room to grow now,
They grew inches without pellet food for two months. Hello strangers! Remember me? They obviously did...
Hey, excuse me… Excuse me… Excuuuuse Meeeeee! Go find some acorns or something… It’s too damned hot out here and you’re getting on my last nerve. Hmmmph.
