June 9: Paperwork, Box Unpacking and Raccoon #3

July 3rd, 2014 at 06:54 pm

My plan for today was to work along with "my" carpenter constructing another built-in bookcase* but that plan fell apart when the carpenter phoned to reschedule. So I just sort of hodge-podged the day.

After my early morning coffee and post writing**, I walked back to our "barnyard" and found raccoon number 3 waiting for me in my live trap. (I am on a roll, here.) So it was another drive-and-hike raccoon release*** for me before I could officially start my day. But I will never complain about a hike.****

9:30am to 12:30pm This seemed like a good day for it, so I put in 2 hours of emptying stored boxes***** and filling up book and display shelves. That plus some mundane chores (like doing the cat boxes) got me to lunch.

12:30pm to 1:30pm Had another enjoyable lunch and DVD lecture on ancient civilizations.

1:30pm to 6:30pm Got totally immersed in stocks****** and household financial paperwork for the rest of the afternoon.

6:30pm until... A leisurely drink, a nice dinner at home, and a big time-chunk of pc strategy gaming******* wrapped up the day for me.

  1. Another Reader Says:

    Those raccoons will reproduce faster than you can relocate them....

    A double walled (and roofed) coop can be effective against raccoons and foxes. The coop can be surrounded by another enclosure that the predators cannot reach the chickens through. Not that they won't try....

    The foxes here are decimating the squirrel and easy to reach bird population. They are also attacking the neighborhood cats. It's almost impossible to convince suburban neighbors the cute babies they feed today will kill their cats and lapdogs tomorrow.
