Returning to the Farm Post Birthday

These guys are buggin' me...

After an extended drive due to a good Samaritan (me, helping three stranded drivers), I finally arrived back at the farm at 3:30am this morning. Since I have to be at work by 8am, I don't have time to post.

However, suffice it to say, Wifey was VERY happy to see were the girls. I got a video of her surprise as I woke her up. I'll have to edit it to make sure it is appropriate. Since I arrived home at 4am and couldn't wait for her to wake up, I woke her while she slept in the bed and her gown might be showing. We can't have that! ;-)

We got lots done and I'll post all about it very soon. Much to my dismay, I arrived back at the farm to find BOTH sticky traps FULL of bugs. Back to square one with the critters...

Bathroom critters (4 days)

Living room critters (4 days)


  1. That must be your "bug" out cabin. Hey, they were there first, you are the intruder (grin).

  2. Dizzy-Dick, it's his "bug-in" cabin. ;)

  3. Good to hear the trip went well.

    As for the bugs, I ran into rule 9 of the article on 45 uses of lemon. Both washing the floor and using some in a spray bottle daily and I haven't seen a bug since, even mosquitoes on the porch have stayed away since. It has been a couple months now so it may work for your bugs too. I spray every other day on my baseboards.

    ""9. Keep Insects Out of the Kitchen
    You don’t need insecticides or ant traps to ant-proof your kitchen. Just give it the lemon treatment. First squirt some lemon juice on door thresholds and windowsills. Then squeeze lemon juice into any holes or cracks where the ants are getting in. Finally, scatter small slices of lemon peel around the outdoor entrance. The ants will get the message that they aren’t welcome. Lemons are also effective against roaches and fleas: Simply mix the juice of 4 lemons (along with the rinds) with 1/2 gallon (2 liters) water and wash your floors with it; then watch the fleas and roaches flee. They hate the smell.""

  4. Be glad your wife doesn't spook like mine does sometimes. I probably would have ended up getting shot sneaking in to wake her up.:)

  5. Good to hear you're back safe and sound. Looking forward to more updates. Jenny

  6. In his series Archaeological Teasures from the Tigris Valley he performed excavations at battlefield sites and photographed the objects found in an improvised studio on site.
