This is how crazy I am these days. I made a list of things I needed to do today which consisted of six entire items and I took immense pleasure as I crossed things off. You may notice that two have still not been completed.
The laundry is mostly done. There's a load of whites in the dryer that I still need to fold and put away.
And the apple butter? Well. That has turned out to be a multi-part process.
It's been a decent day. I got the hen house cleaned first because that's the nastiest job although I'd far rather clean out a hen house than scoop cat litter daily. After that was finished, I watered all the plants in the house and on the back porch and then I turned on the hose and drug it up to the front porch as I do to water all the plants there.
So far, no problem.
There are two palms that I have planted on either side of the steps leading up to the porch and they are still fairly small and their fronds cross over and sometimes block entrance to those steps which isn't usually a problem. Mr. Moon complains about that but I tell him that when they get some height on them, the fronds will be way up in the air and it'll be fine. So I brushed one of the fronds on my way up the steps and damn if I didn't feel like something had shot me in the arm and before I realized what was going on, I had taken another step forward and found myself walking through a spider web.
Well, if you've been here any time at all you know what thought raced through my mind.
TOO MUCH NATURE!!
I had not been shot but merely stung by a very large wasp who was part of a family, or community, or whatever wasps have, who were building a nest on the underside of one of the fronds. I had to check because I really did not know what it had been and if it had been one of those caterpillars that look like Donald Trump's hair, I was going to take a Benadryl and immerse myself in an ice bath and perhaps update my will.
