Remember way back at the end of June when Riley had her birthday party? Well, somehow, somebody lifted the lid of the freezer, in the garage and a bag of meat that was on top, defrosting, slid down behind the freezer.
Apparently, who ever lifted the lid wasn't paying attention when it fell because it remained there.
Time passed and the smell in the garage became overwhelming. I blamed poor little Riley's used diapers and moved the trash container for them as far away from the main door as possible.
Then Zeus thought it was the drain hole in the garage floor. He cleaned it out and still the STINK persisted.
Then proud of himself, he came to find me to tell me that he had moved the chest freezer and found the mess. OMG what a mess.
Bless him, HE CLEANED IT UP. SMOOCHIES FOR HIM
Over the years I've harden myself to cleaning up messes left by children, diapers, sick kids, dogs etc. but something like this, well, I probably would have tossed my cookies.
Our garage now has no smell. A thoroughly delightful thing that I actually notice every time I open the door to go out there or come into the garage.
Unfortunately, I had the rug cleaned, downstairs and somehow the flies that come with the mess came into the house.
We have been killing HUGE BLACK FLIES for the past three days. I mean these things are huge. I feel like I'm on the Twilight Zone. Poor Murphy runs and hides when I start smacking the windows or counter tops. Louie chases them but has proved a lousy fly killer. He would rather play with them.
I think I'm down to three or four of them but I said that to myself, yesterday, too.
They are disgusting.
When this is over I feel like my whole house needs to be sterilized.
And, you think I can't come up with a daily post? HA!
Speaking of flying things.........we had a dragonfly hanging around the kids when they were in the pool this past weekend. He seemed to like to get as close to their heads as possible. They really are quite beautiful.
Hayden got stung by a little sweat bee. I told her to put her spit on it and then some ice. She looked at me and said, "gross". But, it worked. Our spit is amazing. Got a mosquito bite, put your own spit on it and it takes the itch away. But, don't let Aunt Maude reach over and put her spit on your bite, it won't work.
Ok, I'm off to the studio. I need to clean up because the ArtQuilt & Mixed Media ladies are coming on Thursday. We are going to do some painting and resist work on fabric. YEEEPIE!!
