It Finally Got Here!!!

My building finally came yesterday! YAY! YIPPEE! WOHOO!

There was a mix up with the purchase order. The buildings for this area are supposed to be built in Arkansas, but they sent my order to south Texas! Then they had to find a driver to bring it. He got here at about 5:oopm yesterday.

It was interesting to see how he set it up. He dumped it off of the trailer, then got this motorized hand truck-forklift thing and picked up one end, added wheels, then put the forklift on the other end, and walked right to where I wanted it.

It looks tiny, but it's a 10' by 12', so it's plenty big. I have to go buy an air conditioner, because it's been over 100deg. everyday, with a heat index of about 107! I'm not working in that kind of heat!

I stepped off of my front porch this morning to go look at it, and almost stepped on a snake! I don't know who was more scared, me or the snake! I think it was a chicken snake, but he was so fast, it was hard to tell! Now he's under my house! Not good! Maybe he'll find somewhere else to go. Not in the house!

The third pic is my yard. right at the end of the house! The backyard is big but it's bordered by woods in the back, so we have snakes occasionally. It's just part of country life.

I saw a baby Anole lizard, too. He was darling! He was mostly just a head cause he was so tiny! LOL By the time I got the camera, I couldn't find him. Maybe next time.

I have to go to town and buy an A/C and more sunflower seeds for the birdies and the flying squirrels. The tiny little flying squirrels live in the tree at the corner of my porch, but they only come out at night. They are adorable, and I love to watch them. The birds are fairly used to me and will eat while I'm out there. We have Hummingbirds, Tufted Titmouse birds, Black-capped Chickadees, Nuthatches, Cedar Waxwings, and various other birds. They eat a LOT!

I guess I better go get their food, before there's a revolt!!!

Hubby comes home today, so I won't be around much for the next 2 weeks, so you guys have fun!
