“Once burned, twice shy.” (I know all those trite old sayings.) I wasn’t “burned” (bitten) yesterday but I’m “twice shy” (extremely cautious) as I move around the yard. Last night, I read web info, and watched videos, and know more about snakes than I ever wanted to know. (I hate serpents.)
I’m so conflicted. I want to “downsize” but find myself grateful when I “have a need” and locate the desired item(s) among my possessions. This morning I added two sections of garden hose so the sprinkler reaches the distant section of the yard.
