Woke up to a loud thunderstorm approaching, shut the house up, (Okay, I made Guy shut the house up) went back to bed, and listened to it get closer. Found myself thinking about my work today, and fell back asleep–until the tree at the end of the street got hit by lightning. -laugh-
So the yard is watered, and the street quiet. It’s going to get busy in a week or two as school starts back up and little girls in pigtails and new dresses, and boys in pants with uncomfortable creases and clean shoes start going by my window with a pace both eager and slow.
The apples I’ve been watching on my new trees are ripening, and Guy and I shared our first harvest. I’ve been torn if I should spray for mosquitoes or go natural in an effort to find another gallynipper mosquito. They are HUGE, and the eggs can lay dormant for up to ten years until conditions are right. I want to put one of these little suckers in plastic. Gallynipper They can get through heavy canvas and their feet span the size of a quarter. And they hurt!
