All creatures great and small

We have the world's biggest bumble bee living in a plug socket at the front of the house. I don't mind. He's the only bee I've seen and I want them to live and multiply. As long as he keeps his stinger to himself and doesn't invite his wasp buddies, he can stay.

Last night I actually had to close the window because the yipping of the coyotes was getting out of hand. Oh yes, we are that rural (and I love it).

All of my stick gathering and piling on the fire pit has become a Wal Fart super centre for the robins. Cheeky, lazy buggers.

I have planted tomatoes, basil, rosemary, tarragon, mint and sunflowers. If so much as one deer nibbles on them I will start hunting.

It's Monday of possibly one of the busiest weeks of my year, and that's saying something. Here's to surviving.

Hope your week goes well!

You listen to coyotes (which is cool and scary all at once) and we listen to cows! Country livin' at it's best!

Our coyotes are crazy here too. Our dogs go nuts when they hear them. I just got out of the two craziest weeks of my year. Good luck with your week. I feel for you.
