So the previous owner of my home liked climbing ivy. And let it go all over the base of the shutters around the windows at the front of the house. While dealing with the landscaping issue du Juor a couple of months ago, I noticed that the shutters were completely rotten. Between then and today, the bottom fell out of 4 of the 12 shutters. Add in the on-going landscape problems, and the house was starting to look abandoned.
While pulling down the shutters I disturbed something. Either bees or wasps or something. I’m guessing wasps based on the number of nests behind the shutters. I got stung on my cheekbone.
Right now it just hurts like I got punched in the face. (And yes, I do know what that feels like.) I’m guessing that in the morning I will look like I lost a bar fight.
2020 can’t be over soon enough at this point.
