My new nemisis


Raccoons are somehow getting into my attic.  I say somehow, because we cannot find their point of entry. We’ve been in around and on top of it and just cannot find their way in. (Well, Nate went on the roof, I stayed on the ground.) Nothing like waking up in the wee hours of morning to a bunch of screeching raccoons ready to rumble overhead.

My new pattern that I cannot yet reveal to you has been laid out and sent along by my girl, Jennifer. It’s beautiful.  If you want it, you need to go to Robyn’s shop and order her sock of the month for November.

Things have been busy here. Nate’s birthday was Sunday. My Ma, SIL, and nephew came to see us for the weekend. As did Nate’s dad.  He’s staying the week. (but not with us. That explanation to be saved for another post.) Nate’s Mom came on Sunday and left Monday. Then this weekend She will return with Nate’s brother and his family. Things have been busy, but it’s been fun.

Jess is excited about Halloween.  We expect zero trick or treaters. We are off the beaten path, and frankly the house can look quite scary at night.  We’ll be taking our ninja to trick or treat in a neighboring town with a couple of Nate’s friends from college, we recently discovered to have moved back into the area.

I hope you all have a safe and happy Halloween.

    Sprinkle flour in the attic. You will be able to track them with their foot prints.
    That’s how my husband found out how one was getting his father’s old house (which was built around a tree – don’t ask – totally werid).

    After the roofers came and pushed your relatives out this summer, Fred and George (seemed like good names for squirrles) moved back in last month. I don’t know how they got back in, but they even managed to get down in the walls last night. The noise was driving the cats bonkers!
