Another Nice Day

Sunday, September 05, 2010

It was another nice day though not as nice as yesterday.

Hubby and I went for a couple of walks to day. One really long one.

We found out that a male turtle is living in the compost bin. He has dug himself a couple of caves. We saw his head sticking out. He likes to eat the compost veggies.

We saw a doe and fawn several times today. She doesn't run from me but knows to fear men.

Hubby discovered that his driver's license is going to expire and he did not receive a renewal notice. So we have been rounding up the info he will need to fix this in the next 4 1/2 days. EEK!!!

    It must be a box turtle in your compost bin then, right? That is strange but if it works for him . . . hope it never spontaneously catches on fire like they do sometimes.

    I know all about stuff expiring, hope he gets his license okay.

    That is kinda stinky, but you really don't need that much info for your driver's license do you?

    Isn't our weather gorgeous???? I really felt like working in the yard today!!!! Hubby mowed grass & I worked over the planting area at the entrance to our property!!!! It has been so hot & I have been unable to work there almost all summer so it was really overgrown!!!! I at least got a good start on it!!!! Now I am super sore & tired.....but a good tired!! LOL!!!! I LOVE the idea of a man-cave for your turtle!!!! LOL LOL!!!! I wish Hubby could take walks with me, but he can't!! I don't go out at night because of the coyotes, but I walk my furkids in the day!!!! emoticon

    How cool to have the turtle living in your compost bin. I have a blue tongue lizard in mine and she loves sitting in the sun. She has gotten used to me and doesn't move. I love having her here as I have my own cockroach exterminator.

    Hope your hubby gets the license sorted out.

    Have a great week. emoticon

    I'm chuckling over Sheryl's note about the little man turtle cave! LMAO, in fact!

    I wonder if Illinois has decided to change the rules on you and not send renewal notices any more. You'd better check yours, too.

    Beautiful days here as well. The high on Saturday was only 69! Today will be in the 80s. Did a 5k walk this morning. It was only 47 when I left the house. Brrr. Tomorrow is going to be 90! Oh well - that's September. I love it!

    New Mexico no longer sends out renewal notices for driver's licenses. I guess it is one way for the state to save money, and if it means a person's job is saved, then I am all for it.
    On a personal note, because of this my own DL was 4 months past due when I realized it. After 6 months, you have to re-test before they will renew it, so I am glad I got it done before that.

    The box turtle has apparently decided to stay here for a while. We have been leaving it alone except for offering fruit every 2 or 3 days. They are building houses in the field across the street from us now, so I can only assume he was displaced by a cement foundation. DH plans to offer it a hollowed out log and leaves just in case it decides to hibernate here for the winter. I appreciated the links you provided for me. I never meant to keep it as a "pet". I was just hoping it would find it's way back to it's home. Now, we have to protect it from our dogs and try to offer it a suitable place to hibernate, should it decide to do so here.

    Great Day!!! It has been really windy here and we have more wind in the forecast today. My Dad is coming to fish for a while. If it is too windy, the fish won't be biting.

    Take care and have a Marvelous Monday.
