So. How's your week been?

Ours has been...weird. Not just weather-wise, although that's a biggie - but weird all the way around.

Wednesday, I got stung by a scorpion 2x. It was hiding on my bath towel.....:owowowowowowowowow: SG smashed it into oblivion - fortunately, it looks like I am not currently allergic. (We have small ones, not the big deadly ones. Still - :ow:) We've killed 7 in this week alone - NOT normal. "Experts" say it's because of all the rain we've had - they've coming up, looking for drier areas. Whatever....the pest guy sprayed for them last week (because we'd killed more then - it's already been a BAD year for them)..I guess that's why we're seeing so many? :shudder:

Monday, we had a.....let's just say Anna's arch-enemy. It was stuck in between the window screen/glass - after baby birds. SG killed it with the shovel, then pumped 5 .40 rounds into it, just to be sure. :bigger shudder: There is NO DOUBT that it is DEAD. Thankfully.

I asked the Lord what's up...haven't gotten an answer. I also told Him that if He wants us to move, He's got to a) give a definite sign and b) provide financing. (I said that No scorpions would be a nice sign that we should far today, *0* have been sighted. I'll take that!) (Seeing's how He provided this property, I don't want to move without a clear sign it's His will. So....)

I've blown thru 9 books this week alone. 5 of the Maisie Dobbs mystery series, 3 Jane Austen "sequels", and ...wait, 4 Nicholas Sparks/Cameron Wright/etc books. So - 12, I guess. And I'm halfway thru "My Life in Service" about Lady Astor's maid, and another Maisie Dobbs book. I can't weave - my wrist hurts too much for that - so there's really nothing else to do once school/chores are done. :sigh: At least my "to read" pile is getting smaller!

Shabbat Shalom! See ya on the flip side!
