8/11/19 - Bedtime
Sunday, August 11, 2019
After washing the dishes, I grabbed a lawn chair out of the garage, so I could sit on the patio. It was already dark, so I was looking forward to some quiet time. After all the sensor lights had gone out, a raccoon came up the driveway. We were both very surprised to see each other. I'm guessing he's a regular visitor looking for a snack under the bird feeder. When he headed to the back of the garage, the black cat I see occasionally showed up, and he moved along quickly. Since I didn't want to run into a skunk, I put the chair away and went inside.
I cut back the peonies and pulled a bunch of weeds. When I dragged it out to the street, the yard waste container was full. I'm happy the garbage is collected on Mondays.
Scott has a couple of ears of corn sprouting on one of the stalks growing in his garden. Being a girl from the suburbs, I thought corn plants were like tomato bushes and expected a lot of ears would be growing on each stalk. That's a big plant for only one or two ears of corn.
Sweet dreams everyone!!!
