Having been here now almost a year,
there's just a bit of adjustment moving into an old house!
For one, this past winter we had to get the entire duct work
replaced under the house....from that springy type to the sheet metal type,
as critters were chewing through and traveling under us!!! I know...creepy.
A month or so ago, my hubs came home from work
and as he was stepping up onto the porch
thinking that I had the garden hose draped across the steps
it was a real king snake sunning himself!!!!
After Ellie gave him a good sniff he scurried off to his home....
Oh well, he'll take care of the critters is what I say ~
Yesterday, I looked into the front flower bed....what do I see?
A big, ol' snakeskin that was shed out there!!!!
I just keep thinking, yes, that's a good thing ~
they do keep those varmits away, right?
Thank goodness we have someone coming tomorrow to paint the outside of the house....
as pieces of it are slinging themselves out into the yard with this Georgia heat!
And then just awhile ago, I hear crack, boom and crash!
Not knowing what it could be, I called to have someone check the back yard.
I thought maybe a deer had jumped the fence and couldn't get out ~
I see them all the time around here...but no.
It was a massive pecan tree limb that crashed to the ground!!!
They are tender trees....can't take much or they will shed their limbs.
And it was FULL of pecan babies too!
This old 1925 home is a wonderful place to live ~
I love this house....so much character, so much history.
Remember this artwork?
I just added it to my Etsy shop......
Have a great Wednesday my sweet friends,
hugs and love,
