I finished sewing together the scrap pieces of the Halloween fabric. I have a few other Halloween scraps sent to me and I will add those next. My plan is to get the Halloween top finished this weekend so I can move on to another project.
Now the raccoon story. I have had the windows open the last couple of nights since it has warmed up. I also have two bunches of ripe bananas that I use for my smoothies on my kitchen table. Well, the smell of the bananas must have migrated outside to the point where a young raccoon smelled them and attempted to gain entry thru my kitchen window. It knocked out the screen and I think the noise scared it so it ran away, but woke me up two nights in a row at midnight. Then it would alway come back a second time about two hours later and try again. Well, last night it took me a hour to go back to sleep and at 2 a.m. I heard it again. I had closed the kitchen window since I finally figure out what was going on, but there it was hanging on the the window trying to figure out how to get in. I banged on the window. It scared the raccoon and he ran away. I now have placed the bananas in a covered sealed container and will keep the kitchen window shut for awhile. I wonder how many nights he will be back before he finally gives up? I am just so glad he didn't get in! I have chased bats, a mouce, spiders, silver fish, deer, and grinnies, but never a raccoon.
