About 7pm last night, I finally decided to get outside and start mowing. I had to wait until then for the temperature to fall below 90! Once I got started, it was nice with the breeze hitting me. I ended up getting the entire main front yard done. Of course there is still the "front front", the "Bluebirdy meadow" front, the in the woods front, and the side front, but the "main" front was done! I felt like I had accomplished something. I didn't do any mowing while Al was gone, so I'm behind!
While mowing, I kept thinking about what we were told about the Rattle Snakes being on the move, as I sit on the rider with flip flops on! I am waiting for one to jump up at me! It was getting pretty dark by the time I was finishing up and I actually came across a snake. It was a small one, and I don't know what kind it was. I almost ran over him, twice. I think it may have been the same one (or a sibling of) the one Al saw earlier in the day. The one I saw ended up going towards the woods, so that is okay. The one Al saw was close to the house, so that's not okay!
We have also been seeing evidence of an Armadillo that is tearing up the yard.
This was a borrowed picture, but this is what we're dealing with. They dig holes in the ground, looking for insects. We think one has been burrowing a hole under one of our sheds. I guess he's looking for a place to spend the winter. I sure found a lot of freshly dug holes in the yard though.
Today is football day (for Al) this afternoon, more mowing and then we're going to start watching season 3 of Dexter. We just got season 4 as well, so we have a lot to catch up on. If you haven't watched the Dexter series its really a terrific show. The story line is about a guy who is a serial killer, but he only kills the really bad people, but there is a twist!
