No pictures tonight.
When I went to the chiropractor today, we were talking about gardening and he asked me if I’m seeing a lot of snakes. YES! Then he told me about his wife almost getting bit by a rattlesnake and as soon as he killed that one, he realized there was a second one right there too. Ugh . . snakes, snakes, snakes!
Seriously, everywhere I got, everyone is talking about how many snakes we’re seeing in this area. Even when I’m not thinking about snakes, someone brings up snakes!
This evening I was going out to pick beans. Vince said “You ARE wearing your boots, right?” Yes . . I don’t go out without boots, even though it’s just rubber boots . . still better than flip flops. I told him that no matter where I go, people are talking about snakes and I’m starting to get paranoid but it was about 7 p.m., and I hadn’t seen a snake today so maybe today was my lucky day.
I started out to the garden and about halfway before I got there, I saw a bucket on the side of the path and went to pick it up to use for the beans and what was sitting right beside it . . a snake! I turned right around, went back to the house . . Vince looked at me and said “You saw a snake!” Yep. I sat down and then I thought . . nope . . I’m not letting them get the best of me. I went back out, picked beans, ever aware of any movement . . any sound . . knowing there were probably several snakes watching me at any given time.
Summer can end now. Snakes can go back to where ever they came from. I’ve had enough of them already! It is going to be a LONG summer if things don’t change.
