Mighty hunter, Missy!

I spied Missy sitting on that cross piece under the dining room table yesterday morning, and figured she must be guarding something.  I turned on the light.  Ack…a snake to start my day!


It was just a harmless snake, but still…not a great way to begin the day…and before coffee!  The broom and dust pan got him captured and then I released him in the woods, admonishing him NOT to return.

The soccer game was good yesterday; the land sale was really good; and MM actually took some time off and went flying to see if he could remember how (yes!).

This is the project he is currently working on:


The left side is kind of a “before” shot.  MM is cleaning out the right side…and here are some more of his cleaning tools:

Three machines

The pine beetle infestation has done quite a bit of damage to this property, but the trees have been long dead, which makes it easier for MM to put them on the ground.  Easy is good.

So this afternoon is cake and ice cream time with our birthday gal.  And maybe a book for me later on.  That sounds like a fine plan for a Sunday afternoon!  Yep, I’m on it.  The deck is calling my name.

Empress Bee cracks me up. Cake is a really good four letter word to her.

Yikes on the snakes. I wouldn't have lived that either.

MM sure has some major equipment. Wow.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to the babies. :)

Oh, my, not the best thing to find in your dining room, especially before coffee! Glad there were lots of other good things this weekend, though.
