Andy’s at work, and I’m home today. Riding back from ACE hardware, it started to sprinkle. The sky was completely dark, and I was hoping to get back in time, but it didn’t happen. Thunderstorms were forecasted for the day, and I had been so wrapped up in the fruit fly situation and the broken fridge I had forgotten to cover the mattress. Cutting into a wet, found mattress can’t be that pleasurable.
Upon grabbing some plastic sheeting, and rushing out to the kitchen door, I encountered a squirrel on the deck.
That’s not garbage, it’s recycle-ables. What could he be looking for? Perhaps the last few drops of Fat Squirrel?
After struggling with the plastic, a ledge on the ground, wobbly ikea chair, and a pumpkin vine, I was able to cover the mattress. Hopefully, they won’t get totally soaked. I don’t know when we’ll have an opportunity to cut into them now.
