We humans, however, spent the day cleaning out the barn and trimming trees. Oh, how delicious a nap would have been for us!
We also spent a portion of the day hauling off the wood and shingles left from tearing down our wood shed. We will eventually be replacing the old wood shed with a log structure that matches our log home. As we removed layers of old wood and shingles, we were greeted by the current occupants of the shed (who will soon be in need of a new home). It seems the woodshed was home to a family of black snakes. Here are Mama and Papa. Their babies slithered away quickly before I could snap a good picture.
I am hoping they find a nice new home....far, far, away from this location....and certainly not in the new woodshed!! Yikes!
