A few days ago one of those big moths was out flapping against the porch screen to get out. Yup! Somehow it found a way into the porch/balcony. Karma was happy to watch it for a while before the murderer came out armed with a paper towel.
Then this morning...a wasp!
I have mentioned several times how I am afraid of wasps and bees...well, I finally worked up my nerve to go out there and catch it in a jar. I am too afraid of trying to swat them or any other such insane foolishness. I am a much crueler and more devious killer...sneak quietly up on them...trap them...and leave them to die in the jar. I tried carrying wasps downstairs and letting them go...twice...and they came right at me out of the jar! Almost got into the building and scared the everlovin' sh*t out of me...so that was the end of my mercy attempts. Now I wait until they are dead...for a couple of days...so I am dang sure they are stone-cold-dead. Fear is a terrible thing. Talk about revealing your shadow self.
I am going to ask Dagan and Leah to scout around out there tomorrow to see if they can find the gaps where these random bugs are still gaining access to my sanctuary. I can't tell where they are getting in. Has to be along the edges of the carpet someplace.
I have a ton of pictures of the work on the foundation/basement walls on Dagan and Leah's new house. Truth--I got busy sorting, cleaning, and organizing paint supplies all morning--frankly--I am too tired and sore to sort through these, so I posted them all. They are all exciting to us, of course--but you can just skim past if you want to. Here you go!
I can hardly wait to see the next set of pictures! Not that I can tell exactly what I'm looking at--LOL! ;) That's it for today. Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend! :):)
