I Was Away

It was only there for three days and I had my laptop.  So.  Why didn’t I blog?  Hmm.  Well.  I don’t know.  Well.  No.  That’s not it.  I could have blogged.  Really.  I turned my laptop on.  I went to my blog and stared at it blankly a few times.  And then, I turned it off.  I just didn’t feel like it. 

Monday, I went to Reisetrstown to see how the house looked and see my son.  Sometimes, children ( even adult children) need to hear, “that’s all right.  I still love you”.  We had some cooking  lessons, what to throw out lessons and what to chop down lessons, like the iron bench is completed covered by forsthysia bushes.

081309 002The house really looks good.  I want to thank my daughter for finding good people to do the job.  The pompom tree on the side yard is very overgrown, but it completely hides the idiot’s porch next door.  I’m afraid I’m going to have to call the county on him again.  The hydrangea on that side don’t look very good.  They aren’t getting much sun.  I think I’ll have them moved to the front this fall.  It’s looking a little bare since I had the big holly tree removed.

081309 004 I was standing on the front porch when I saw a small pile of tiny black pellets by one of the shutters.  I slowly pulled it back and there was the bat.  I slowly closed it and got my camera.  See?  He’s smiling just for me.  I think we’ve always had bats in our attic.  For a few weeks in the fall and spring, they’d be coming in as I was leaving for work.  I liked to watch them trying to get into the tiny slot.  I missed the train more than once.  Bats are so cool!  Whenever we go to the DC zoo, I always go to the bat house.

Is that enough for today?  I hope so.

    Oh, I love your house. Especially the color! I also found the pic of the bat fascinating. I’ve never seen one up that close! What a great picture!
