More Life Adventrures
Last night, before I went to sleep, my husband asked me
what I wanted to do on Saturday morning. My response?
All I wanted to do was sleep to 6:00 A.M. and have coffee
and watch the sun come up. It didn't work out like that.
3:30 Husband gets up to let dog out to go to the bathroom.
I am trying to keep my eyes shut so I don't wake up.
3:31 I hear, "Sasha, Sasha,!! No, Sasha, skunk!!!
I jump out of bed, yelling like a banshee, Sasha!!! Come back!!
3:32 Sasha comes back, and I tell my husband, grab her don't let
her in until you can see where she got sprayed."
3:33 He tells me" I think the skunk missed."
3:34 I let her come into the bedroom and my room is engulfed in the aroma
3:35 I grab her by the collar and start dragging her out the door. Hoping the skunk
took off for home.
3:36 Ron goes in to get the skunk stuff called Nature's Miracle we buy by the gallon.
fills the sprayer bottle and I did have presence of mind to grab gloves. We sprayed her
down and rubbed it in and locked her in the garage bathroom.
3:54 I thought I could still sleep until six, I tried to go back to bed, my room smelled
like 10 skunks had a party. I pulled the covers up over my head.
4:15 I gave up, grabbed a pillow and a blanket and tried to sleep on the couch.
4:30 Dog in garage starts howling, and howling.
5:30 The coffee goes off and my husband and I get up and try to find some
fresh air to drink our coffee with. We give up and have skunk flavored coffee.
6:00 A.M. I walk out to take the Netflix envelope out to the mailbox.
The neighbors cat is dead out in front.
Ron cleans up the cat and buries it out in the back of the pasture.
I think I need to go talk to the neighbors behind us because it seems
like my husband goes out there very early and buries things. Last time
it was a dead possum but you know it looks pretty weird. "Can't you hear them
peeking out through the drapes, " Look he is at it again, can you see what he is
digging that deep hole for this time,?"
I guess I need to tell the other neighbor we buried her cat. I hope she doesn't mind.
We pulled out the tomatoes and got that all cleaned up. I got my chicken pen cleaned
and fresh straw in the nest boxes and one side of the pumpkins picked.
We got the pool filters all cleaned and I went in the house and it was only 9:30 A.M.
Just life around here on Saturday morning. Next job will be Sasha gets a bath.
What did you do this Saturday?
