I was hoping that you were okay. That is a lot of rain but hoping you didn't have a lot of wind with it.
Have you tried putting boric acid down along the outside and inside of the walls where the trails are at. Bugs don't like it but it doesn't hurt the plants you will be using the composted materials on.
It was hot here today, turned the a/c on yesterday and it really feels good.
I mowed the yard when I got back from vacation and am going to have to mow it again Monday, already high enough for the dogs to get lost in.
Found a snake this morning, first one I have seen in the yard in three or four years. It was a good snake though, it was dead. Don't know if the cats or the dog killed it. I thought it was a worm, about three inches long till I saw that it had eyeballs. Am watching much closer because there is probably a nest of them close to where that one was.
My dog's favorite place is on the ironing board in the sun, then I caught her pulling all the straight pins out of the pin cushion and throwing them on the floor. Moved the pin cushion so she couldn't swallow a pin. Put an old pillow case for her to lay on so I am not getting dog hair on my clothes when I iron.
One of the little towns just south of me had a very bad reputation for stopping people on the State Highway for speeding and collecting fines that never quite made it where it was supposed to go. The Texas Rangers finally stopped that and then last year the Texas Rangers and FBI paid the City Hall a visit and took the Mayor and two other off to jail. They had the Mayors trial today and found her guilty of taking out loans on cars that the town didn't own. I don't think they gave her enough time but at least she is out of a job. And it was her birthday.
