Forgive me if this blog is short - I'm really tired tonight. It's a good tired, though!
First, I don't think I told you all about my Saturday night "drama." I'd gotten up from bed to use the bathroom - the last "hurrah!" so to speak before I turned off the TV and and the lights. I don't usually flip the light on in my half-bath. Saturday afternoon was cool and pleasant, so I had some of my windows open. I'd closed them earlier when the temperature dropped, and it was a little chilly. So, I'm sitting there with my pj's around my ankles, when I see something on the floor next to the exterior wall and the vanity. Dog toy? One of my cloth belts that the pups had dropped there? Did I just see it move?!!! I eased on the light, and there, in the corner of my bathroom, moving slowly due to the cold is a small, red rat snake!!! OMG! Startled me so badly and being I was sleepy, that I didn't think to just throw a towel over it and haul it outside. No - I have to yell for my son - I turn around to see where the little *@!#$!! was (the snake, not my son) just in time to see it's tail disappear between the wall and my bathroom vanity!
Now, why do I have the feeling that I'm going to find this thing either in the laundry basket, one of my dresser drawers, or in my bed? Yikes! So far, so good.....
Today, I made a white bean and veggie soup - dried baby lima beans, chicken broth (veggie broth would do if I don't have chicken broth), celery, carrots, onion, and fresh spinach. Turned out really good!
And this evening I figured out how to light the pilot light in my furness! Fire Good!!! The temperature outside is 58 degrees right now, and dropping, but it's a nice 72 in here. Woohoo!!
That's about all I can do for tonight - I've got to finish my tea and get some sleep! Hopefully, without another encounter with the little reptile. And speaking of, if a lizard or snake gets to old to reproduce, does that mean it has ereptile disfunction? Just askin'!
