And then there's this little devil:
The Raccoon who has taken possession of our garbage cans. He lurks out there every night from 9 pm - 3 am. He's smart, strong, and stubborn. When we catch him in the cans, he climbs up the fence and waits for us to leave the window so he can return to his business. One night, B returned late from a night of call, only to be startled by the raccoon perched protectively on the fence. And when the kids aren't waking me up during the night, you can bet the raccoon is keeping me up with his banging around down there. We're strategizing a way to politely get him to move along...I'll keep you updated on our progress.
Too bad I can't sing, or I'd try this. I'm sure all my little critter friends would love to help me tidy up around here.
Oh, and this is just the beginning: there's a pair of turtle doves who live in the back yard, and some wild boars who roam the neighborhood (really).
In other news, I'm teaching my first-ever jewelry making class tomorrow. I just finished making the bracelet kits. I hope I don't sound like a complete idiot. :)
