I looked up my family tree and found out I was the sap.
4:51 AM and the fig tree is making funny noises! What now? I slips out of bed, grabs my iPhone and get the 2000 lumen flashlight and head for the door.
They apparently were frightened by my sudden appearance (most people would be scared at my appearance at 4:30 AM). They scampered out of the tree and over the garage of our neighbor. I counted five of them, You can see two in the following picture.
So it is now 6:00 AM and I am up! The garden needs some work so I head to the back yard!
Checking the email, I got a monthy report on our heating.cooling usage:
We have the thermostate connected to the internet via the Honeywell software so we can control heating/cooling/temperatures/fan from anyplace on the world!
Time for work! WORK? Eeks!! Out to the back yard and trim back the tomato plants. I filled 200 gallons of trash containers with dead vines and old tomatoes (sounds better than rotten, right?).
We went to the Garden Grove Elks and danced for hours. We have 17 members of the gang this evening.
We were thinking a lot about Brian and Jan this evening and when our waiter came up, I broke down and had a burger!
we headed home about 9:30 PM and watched TV before crashing. I was in bed before midnight so I could be ready for the “Great Raccoon Battle” that may occur in the morning.
