Good thing I didnt share the pic! (of the massive window spider, not the spider bite on the bum). The huge spider had moved to the back door to greet me this morning. It was gone when I got in from watering, hopefully not under the door...
Got three ant bites to add to the bite collection today, two on the ankle and one on the knee. I dont think they are bull ants, but they are bigger than the usual ants. Clever little things do their work in the cool of the morning too. I found holes in the sand all over the place from critters who had dug in to avoid the searing sun. Its not actually much hotter than usual but there is a new weather man on the tv who makes out that it is.
I let the rabbits out for a run this morning and the girl is being such a brat. Trying to chew my exercise mat, went to find scraps on the kitchen floor, dug at the bathroom mat and is probably currently in the dirty laundry pile on my bedroom floor making holes in my clothes... She needs the exercise, and is usually a very very good girl but they are in another moult right now so shes a furry little terror. I should go find her before much damage is done.
Come spring, the Beaver County farm will be idle for the first time since he first turned the soil there in the spring of 1979. Don Kretschmann, 71, is retiring after failing to find someone to take over his 80-acre operation.
