happy, happy hump day...

I know I missed a day, but got busy...
and we have baby green beans!

just a shot at the fine stackin' job I do...
that was my job as a kid...
we had 2 old wood stoves in that big old farm house I grew up in...
hauled plenty of wood, too...
split, haul, stack...

got some mornin' glories happening here, too...
and right in my back yard..

had a red fox trot across the north part of the yard right before lunch this morning...
no shot of that...

y'all know I had a bad day on Monday after all the work we did over the weekend...

yesterday was the complete opposite...
it was a wonderful day!

I was up and outside taking photos...
dead heading flowers...

it was Monday evening that I found this...
it was huge and I couldn't believe we hadn't seen it before...
this is the line of shrubs out front...
see the big white X?

this is what was in there...
a big bald faced hornets nest!
its a wonder that no one has been stung...
I walk Charlie right by there...
the cats sleep under there...
mower guy rides right past there...
it had to go...
cost us $100 to get it done...
but the guy came right after lunch today and sprayed it...
not going back out there until after DH gets home...
these are pretty mean little varmints and can swarm on you pretty bad...
check out the youtube videos of the idiots who make them mad...
;0)

after my great and amazing speedy recovery yesterday, I got up early this morning with a d sore throat and both ears aching...
;0)
doing better now...
just need cold medicine and a nap...
there is something going around here already and school's just been back in session a little over a week...
;0)
I hope this isn't a sign of things to come this winter...
I might just hit doc up for a cootie shot...
;0)
have good days!

Tete, Great photos. Yes, that hornet's nest is scary. All of you have been lucky not to have been stung. I hate that you are sick again. I hate ear aches. Take care and get well soon. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Hi Tete, Firstly I love all of your photos, except for the hornets nest-yuck and watch out! I put up corn yesterday and string beans-we just freeze them, I don't can them. I am sorry you have been fighting something; drink lots of hot teas and broths. Sending love and prayers for a quick recovery.
Hugs, Noreen

Hi Tete, you captured great photos once again with your talents. The hornet's nest would be scary to find. So glad no one or your fur babies were stung.
Sure hope you feel better. Something is going around like an early flu. Can you believe how fast the summer has flown by? Must be my age!!!
Have a nice weekend. Blessings, cm

Those morning glory were so pretty. - To bad you didn't get a shot of the fox but neat that you got to see it. - Wow that was some hornets nest. Glad no one got stung. - Hope you don't get sick, here the sore throat I have is more from the smoke from all the fires in the PNW then a cold.
