After the somewhat surreal Tuesday, Wednesday was much more mundane.

Actually the mound of laundry we hauled down to the laundry mat was somewhat surreal. Tomorrow I will be trying to clean out the garage enough to get at our washer and dryer, just for the sake of not having to deal with that type of mound again. The garage is a daunting task, but the cost of doing a hatchback full of laundry all at once has convinced me that waiting any longer is foolhardy -- particularly since the evil landlord has finally sent a lease renewal for the next year. I find I get very passive aggressive whenever we are in lease-limbo, feeling like any move to unpack, clean-up or install anything might thought off the Karmic forces and make me loose the game of chicken we play every 6 months to a year.

Besides the laundry, I got to Look back at lights of Hobbiton from first slopes of the Green Hill Country.

Sparing you all the photos.

Instead, I will share with you one of my favorite local critters -- I suspect this one is responsible for the drop in the total number of mice...

This one is large enough that mouse pinkies are "just right" for a meal.

Snakes terrify me. If that guy was in my yard, I'd die.

I keep on saying I need to get a sticker for the mower that says "I brake for vertebrates" - every time I mow I either have to wait on garter snakes or amphibians (both toads & some form of common frog).

The amphibians seem not as prevalent this year, though on warm nights I do have to do toad patrol before the older dogs go out -- they seem to think the toads will do in lieu of sheep.

Snakes have never been my freak-thing, unless I cannot identify the species. I know what most of the non-poisonous species look like, but have an unfortunate dearth of knowledge regarding the venomous type -- If I can't recognize it, I won't approach.

The picture is much more up close than I was -- the miracles of even a cheap zoom lense. These Garter snakes are quiet skittish.
