~A Little Update~

Ants: all gone. I'm not sure why they are out of our house. I swept and mopped and they came back...and I threw my hands up in dispair and ignored them. I think I went outside and weeded or something. Kevin did put some ant bait around our house, and if that is what worked, it worked magically fast. All I know is that they're gone, and I hope they don't come back!

I thought they weren't getting in through the basement, but I am seeing little piles of dead ants around spider webs down in the basement. So I guess they are coming in through the basement. For once the spiders are working for me! Go spiders! (Just the little spiders. The big spiders can stay AWAY thankyouverymuch.)

I see something forming here:

What do you think?

And what are these? Squash bugs? Yeeks.

Good to know it's not a squash bug. I'll let you google pictures of bugs. ;) Let me know what you find out! :)
