This is how I feel at the end of this garden day. Reflective .. even pensive about how things are going. Raccoon Man finally came and collected his trap .. tail between his legs .. the guy had the nerve to whine about not being able to come earlier because of the weekend ? .. oh, and he forgot to tell us how to set the trap ? ... loser !! has left the building !
Hubby was up on the roof cleaning out all the silly wire from said SILLY guy .. cleaning the gutters .. just cleaning in general and hoping F.B. Raccoon, who has been a no show for about 48 hours .. has found another stomping ground to park his carcass ? I'm not wishing THAT on anyone .. I just want it out of here !
I spent hours in the garden trying to whip it into shape .. cutting back .. watering, fertilizing .. pruning with climbing up and down the ladder too many times to count .. hubby raking flying debris .. you know how you can be crazed driven in PRUNING mode when preoccupied with other worries ??? .. things are cleared out, well and truly proper, while I was in that mode.
So .. I need to sit back and rest up for a bit .. get ready for the next battle in other words .. and yes .. poor Emma .. she is in heat .. Sophie wants nothing to do with her .. nature can be cruel .. July 24th can't come soon enough for us all to get her spay operation over with .. poor little girl .. poor Sophie .. poor us ??? LOL
