So, last weekend, it rained. and rained and rained and RAINED, and now here we are at Tuesday and it's STILL raining.
Saturday morning, I went to a local garden center that was having their annual season-ending sale, and bought some day lilies, which are one of the few things the neighborhood deer will (usually) leave alone, to replace some weird bush-type perennial that kicked the bucket in my front yard some time back. I also grabbed a pumpkin plant and a tomato plant, because the deer need a balanced diet, doncha know.
After that, I headed up to Ithaca and splashed around in the rain and bought out Hobby Lobby, and I found some other Very Cool Stuff that I'll be talking about later this week. Sunday morning, I woke up with visions of Belgian waffles dancing in my head, so I headed for a diner and ate like I'd just gotten back from a week-long camping trip. *urp*
I was supposed to do a road trip on Sunday afternoon to pick up yet another foster (I KNOW), but that got canceled so I threw on a rain coat and headed for the creek.
The paintballers have been busy reinforcing their perimeters:
and digging entrenchments:
and doing some general reinforcing work:
Insert standard old-fogy "Well, at least they're outside in the fresh air and not cooped up inside playing video games" comment here.
I played some with the macro feature on my camera:
This is my current fav photo:
Sunday afternoon I did a bunch of laundry and let the foster kittens out to romp around the house for a while and broke up a war between Tinks and one of the neighborhood cats in the backyard (TINKS!) and felt kind of relieved that even if I'd wanted to mow, I couldn't, what with all the rain.
And today I read that this has been the fifth-most-rainiest June on record in this area, and it's STILL raining today, so who knows? Might end up fourth-rainiest, or even third-rainiest!
