12.4.13 cont.

Awful Awful afternoon yesterday..   I had a nap in the afternoon and heard a comotion in the front of the house  went to see what was going on and  sitting in the middle of the klitchen floor was

          A SNAKE!!!!!!!

Can you believe it I like to have died right then.   I never knew I could scream so much in my life!!!  I can laugh about it now I managed to get the dogs locked up but not the cats they were hunting it    

I wasnt sure if it was poisunous or not all I saw was black about 14 inches long    I managed to get on the center counter  and called  every man I knew around the neighbourhood to come help and only got 1 response. My friends husband drove right over but when he got here he couldn't find it  so he left me!!


Thank God for my son he was already at work and had to come all the way home 3/4 hr drive one way  he gets here comes in the house  says he had to use the bathroom first then he would find the snake. walks towards the hall and picks up the snake!!!!      

It was  like it was waiting for him!!    Turned out to be his  snake that he hand raised outside when it was hurt (had the scars on him not that I looked !!)     I dont know how it got in the house though  that thing is old at least 6-7 yrs      

This weekend the house will be gone over with a toothcomb and any and all air gaps or holes blocked off!!!

so that was the rest of my day yesterday!!!!!!

today I keep looking at the floor where I walk and checking chairs   it will take a while to get over this!!!

Hello everyone!! 

The last month of the year!!   I sure hope next year goes smoother for many of us!!I think we all deserve a year with a lot less

Well I have been working away on the UFO list and actually got a few finished.  my list for this year was 38 items and I have about 4 items left on the list!!!  not bad  if I would stop making new ones it wouldn't be so many!! Oh well there is always tomorrow....

I have started  working on the wish quilt by redbrolly as well I have saved the patterns for awhile  and it was top of the list for 2014 but started it now.

well  I need to go and get some more cleaning done before the repair man gets here. Our satalite box  needed replacing  but I couldnt get it to program when I got the new one in the mail so they had to send a  tech to fix it for me!! they had to come the past saturday to fix my sons as well in his room should have done both when they were here but they said they couldnt as new box was shipped to me.!! I guess this way they get paid twice at least I have the repair plan on my  bill so I won't get charged!!

Hope you all have a great week 

Blessing for a great Holiday season  to you all.
