The weather is turning cool and the wasps and ladybugs are looking for ways to get inside. The windows on my house are only 3 years old, but the wasps have finally figured out a way to get in. I thought with new windows I wouldn’t have to fight the wasps anymore this time of year, but I was wrong. We’re still trying to figure out how they’re getting in. It’s a mystery. We had to kill a few in the church house too on Sunday morning.
Our family is expecting a special guest this week. My Mom’s sister, Anna is due to arrive Thursday from Massachusetts. Mom and Anna haven’t seen each other for about 22 years I think. she’ll be here for a week. This will be an extra special Thanksgiving for us.
