Saturday was a morning to work in the garden .. and we both worked hard .. hubby slowly emptied the rain barrel with watering dry patches in the front garden .. a slow some what back annoying job .. but finally the rain barrel is twisted to the right position to make life easier using it ! Thank you hubby !
I was in prune back and tidy up mode .. and binding the Karly Rose grass in its more attractive vase shape around the obelisk .. phew ! now it can rain all it likes (does that put a whammy on rain fall now ?? )
I only lasted a few hours .. it got HOT and STILL, .. no breeze and the sun beating down on us .. we were both sweaty kids in the garden. So .. most things in order .. I came in .. had a shower and collapsed for the day.
Sunday .. well this is the day I rip the house apart and clean .. didn't get too far ... beds changed laundry on the go .. kitchen cleaned .. family room dusted .. then bang .. then the repercussions from a stressful week and working too hard .. I had to stop and flop on my bed .. I hate having the health problems I do, but especially when they just drag you down to the floor in the middle of trying to do things .. so this day was done for me.
This morning I was up at 6:15 .. Sophie and Emma too glad to see me .. so they are happy cats to be back in their routine with me. So far so good ?
Now for the raccoon part .. our Raccoon Man, Curtis, was by yesterday .. put the spring loaded SHUT door on .. so we thought finally the door is literally SHUT once FB Raccoon leaves tonight .....
Well .. when I got up and some what conscious ? .. Emma took off for the living room ran so hard when she hit the top of the leather sofa she fell off near the bay window .. so I had to go over and see if she was alright .. and what did I hear ? raccoon CHATTER .. I mean chatter BIG TIME .. the wooden box with spring loaded door is right above the window .. FB Raccoon was there yelling his head of in raccoon 'speak" .. I went and had my coffee so I could wake up to normal people level .. thinking all the time that he was outside on the roof mad as hell that he couldn't get back in .. I was plucking up my courage to go out and catch a picture of him (thinking .. I hope he doesn't make a leap for me being so mad as he sounded ??) .. so I adjusted my camera to 'burst' mode defied the reality that I looked like 'Night of the Living DEAD" put my jean jacket on and went out front ...............................
Oh SHIT ............................ no raccoon on the 'outside of the box" .. meaning FB Raccoon in trapped inside ...................................... I'll let you know what happens and with a picture of the box minus the raccoon that should be on the OUTSIDE of IT !!
