We are experiencing technical difficulties. Okay, we WERE experiencing technical difficulties. That's why I haven't been on here for a while. I had 4 viruses and 2 rouge programs. WOW! Now,thanks to a wonderful nephew, we are back up and running. YEA!!!!
Just in time to tell you about our bug problem. Ants,spiders,and crickets,oh my! Let's start with the ants. Ants are everywhere right now! I mean EVERYWHERE! If a teeny,tiny, drop of ice tea gets dropped on the kitchen counter, BAM, ants. If a drip of butter happens to land on the stove, KAPOW!,ants. If a tomato,yes,tomato, is left unattended, KABLEWY,ants. The only place that we don't have ants is (get ready for this) in an iron skillet. I can leave an iron skillet completely full of food and the ants will not touch it. Go figure.
Now the spiders.....We are killing spiders every night. Not just your normal everyday spiderweb spiders. OOOOOHHH NOOOOOO, couldn't be those. We are having to kill the giant field spiders. You know the kind. I think they are the size of my St. Bernard. Okay, maybe not that big. But close. The spiders are roaming my house every night. And every night, we kill them. Now before I get comments about picking them up and putting them outside(yea right), I'm all for bugs being in their natural environment. My house is off limits.
Now for the cricket.......We have a cricket that has taken up residence in our bedroom. How do I know this? Because it announced it to me ALL night long. "Good night Hubby" Cheep,cheep,cheep. "Hubby, can you turn up the t.v.? Cheep,cheep,cheep. "Honey, can you kill that cricket?" Cheep,cheep,cheep. Enough all ready. I couldn't find the little cheeper. I did find earplugs though.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl,cheep,cheep, cheep.
