have grabbed me with their nasty teeth and refuse to let me go…. i wander from place to place, with my to do list in hand, realizing that i have about 25% of 50% of the items finished and i really don’t give a shit!
my front lawn is mowed and basically beautimus, because other people can see it, my back lawn is covered with droppings off of the tree from hell [see post below] and i just can’t muster up enough ambition to go out and work on it.
i have looked at my fantasy football team [the golden graboids] once today to make sure i have everything in order… no this is not an obsession [Allen!], but it is like a job. you must manage early, especially when you didn’t get hardly any of the players you wanted because of the V,LDDoS you were too lazy to sit through a live draft. i’m sure i will keep you all up to date on the status of my team… [no it is not an obsession]. oh and jess, i got one of those ‘error has occurred’ messages from our buds at fox sports this morning…
in the last two days i have brushed enough hair off my dog and my big fat cat to make an afghan, a sweater and at least two rats in dog suits. my dog will not come near me, he has had enough. i don’t know about everywhere, but here in northern utah [utah’s canada] the seasons were late this year. usually all this shedding stuff is over by the end of june, well it’s almost fall and the animals are still in full shed mode.
pardon me for a minute, i need to go make some sugar water for the hummingbirds…. they seem to be migrating again, and there are lots in my yard… i love that part about being home during the day, i get to see all the hummingbirds….
i’m back. speaking of humming bird feeders… i have two, a giant one that holds quite a bit of liquid, but i never fill it all the way up because the effing earwigs get in it and die and pollute the whole thing and a small one [best 1 hummingbird feeder] that works really well and doesn’t spill all over the place when the wind is blowing. i had an old one of these, but after about 10 years the base finally broke, and although the new one is easier to clean, i don’t really think it works as well because the sugar water doesn’t flow down into the base as well and i have to go out and move it around to get the nectar down to where the hummingbirds can get at it.
this has been a good year for hummingbird feeders because [possibly because of the late seasons] we haven’t had nearly as many wasps this year. so not as many wasps hanging around the feeders and chasing the hummingbirds off. this is probably sick and wrong, but i have a ‘bug zapper’ that looks like a small tennis racket, in summer’s past i have taken the zapper out and zapped the wasps and then dropped them by the bushes where i know that spiders hang out, since the wasps are just stunned and not dead the spiders come out and claim a nice dinner. i just think of it as life in the food chain, well kind of.
although being quite lazy today, i am actually multi tasking, i am doing laundry as we speak, which [to conserve energy and money] i hang outside during the summer… and since the washer just finished i am going to go do that! after i run spell check, not because i can’t spell, but because i can’t type! oh and because i am OCD about that.
this is the old hummingbird feeder and you can see my laundry on the line in the distance.
