I did some outdoor work today. While trimming weeds and grass, I upset the homes of lots of spiders and crickets. I almost got pecked by a bird when I moved the box on the porch in which it had taken shelter. Then, while cleaning out the shed, I discovered a snakeskin.
Update: of course the night could not end without the flying insects getting in on the th action. I had to destroy a wasp nest on the back door. Was that there this morning? Now I know why that wasp has been flying around the last few days.
