Operation Repel Raccoon

We have officially begun 'Operation Repel Raccoon.' That creepy, poopy critter better look out. We've blasted the deck & nest area with boiling water to kill germs and repel anything lurking in the nest. We have been leaving the motion activated lights on at night. We also sprinkled a critter repellent over the grass around the deck stairs.

Take that evil raccoon!

So far, so good.

No fun food photos today - I tried to take a photo of our tasty snap pea-zucchini-tomato saute but discovered the camera batteries were dead and it didn't occur to me to use my cell phone. We were too distracted talking about some changes at SP's work (longer hours and less vacation - boo hoo) to pay much attention to our dinner.

No Starbucks ice cream tonight. We finished it. I guess I'll have to settle for a chocolate Klondike. Mmmmm.


  1. To clarify - I checked that the nest was empty before I poured the hot water near it. No critters were tortured in the process.

  2. Isn't turnabout fair play? They're torturing us...!
