Easy Sunday Recap

Well, we had an Easy entire weekend!
To sum it up...

Since our mom was lazy last weekend, we had to put her to work this weekend.
Yesterday she worked on the front yard and today she did the back yard.  Most impawtantly, she put more bird food out and cleaned their bath dishes (it's been hot here!)

Do you see that thing hangin way at the back, what looks like a bird house maybe?
Well, it's acutally a bee house!
It's for mason bees and other solitary type species that don't colonize in hives like honey bees do.
Mom hung it out there several weeks ago, not realy expectin anything.

See the plugged up holes?  We got lodgers!
We're all really excited...ok...mostly our mom is really excited...

This is the time of year when we get ant invasions in the house.  Mom was all grumbly cause just a week after she organized the cupboards and our half of the pantry, the ants came!  They didn't get into any of our food but mom didn't want to take any chances.  Part of her chore work today was to get airtight containers for our dehydrated type foodables.  Now she just has to figure out how to fit the containers in the cupboard...details...

This time of year also brings these guys...or maybe gals...

(creepy pic-sher warning)

Mol!  We have garden spiders out the wazoo and mom lets them stay.  This is one of the biggest!  The pic-sher is zoomed but she really is that big, mol!  Thankfully they stay outside. These guys are in the class of "too creepy for us to mess with".  Hee hee!

With that, have a great week, everybuddy!


  1. I think it is so neat that you have bees :-) But I could do without the spiders...gah!!!!!

  2. Wow, I didn't know there were BEE houses - that is awesome!

  3. COOL BEANS! What kinds of bees do you get, and where did your Mom get the Bee house? Mommy wants one!

  4. Bee house! So you have bee TV, cool!
    We had ants the other day...fortunately we could find their entry and blocking it solved problem. I hope your mom can keep them away. We always have to figure out how to fit the containers, too. Hehe.
    That spider is huge!! Glad she stays outside!!

  5. The.bees look cool in their house, but ants ants are no fun!
