What a Monday already! This is that Monday you dread because your weekend was SO not relaxing and you know the work work will not be any better.
This weekend there was a lot of good things however.
One, I treated everyone for fleas...again. Actually, there is nothing good about that, unless all the fleas died. I added Capstar to the regiment.
The cats weren't a fan. Both had an increased scratching and intense behavior. Emile did the worst. He started frantically running the house and when he did finally stop his little ears and feet were hot (probably from all the running, although I never see his pads so red). Anyway, the response is over in 30 minutes to an hour, but I am will probably avoid doing that to the cats again.
Except for some increased scratching (also in that 30 minute to an hour window) Nim did just fine. Then we spent the weekend outside and I am sure he found all the fleas in the yard again. Diatomaceous earth is coming this week for me to sprinkle outside for natural flea control. I have had it.
My gardens continue to produce just a little bit. I love these flowers.
My lemon cucumbers may have a chance as I have them going up a trellis sort of arrangement. Keeps them off the ground and away from the slugs. I can't wait for one to ripen.
It was an active Sunday of wildlife commuters. If you enlarge the photo you can better see the two fawn crossing the stream ahead of her.
Still some spots left on the baby elk. I miss my 4 from last year. I haven't had many baby elk visitors this year it seems.
I have scheduled my next IRS SEE exam - Test 1 - Individuals for Monday August 25th. Yes, I am nervous.
