skunks and paint and shawls OH MY!

Where does one begin?

Monday night we were awoken at 3:30 by this little guy trapped in the window well below our bedroom. The board you see was put in hoping he would find his way out. No such luck. Thankfully he is too young to spray. Not knowing this yet nor knowing if Mama was around we left him their hoping he would make it out on his own. Nope...and he kept us up the rest of time until dawn. In the daylight we attempted to usher him into a bucket but he just huddled in the corner. Finally a towel was thrown over him and he was picked up. My love released him behind the back shed. I hope he found his family. It was exhausting excitement.
And where were the girls during all this you ask?? My viscious hunters? ASLEEP ON THE BED. Isis was even snoring. I'm thinking of demoting them.





Today's top mission includes all this. I am finally painting the trim in the back room. The weather isn't ideal for this type of work (more rain) but it is my only free day to do so. I'll do the second coat this afternoon and pull all the tape. That leaves a few wall and ceiling touch ups and the shoe moulding. That I will paint in sticks and he will install it. I'm rather happy how the room is coming out. I sense I will be spending copious amounts of time this winter because it is so springy looking. Plus it is now the only room with insulation in the walls. I need to get this done soon though. I'm tired of it's half finished state. Especially since I need the beds to block this...
