I guess I am happy to be back at work. Not surprisingly, it's much less work than cleaning up after a flood.
Last night I put my car in the garage for the first time since last Wednesday night. This is what I had cleaned out of my interior fan for my car heater a week ago on Sunday:
Apparently the little critters are at it again because when I turned on my heater (it was a little chilly this morning here), it was making noises again. Sigh. Now I get to be a contortionist once again to remove the fan housing from underneath the passenger dash and clean it out again. The fun never ends.

We're getting tired of living in plastic box land--this is our front porch.

Yes, that registers about 15 inches. This is what it did to the basement:

It started to rain Saturday afternoon. It rained and stormed fiercely. It let up long enough on Saturday evening so that Paulette and I could take the old endtables up to her niece, Alison in Neenah. Then it started to storm again--into Sunday morning. There was a little break on Sunday, in which our friend Kyle called and asked if we had flooding. His street was terribly flooded, as were many streets in Oshkosh. Just getting to church, Target and Starbucks was a major chore with all the flooding. Then the rain started again--and Kyle's basement flooded. Ours just got a couple of small (by comparison) puddles which are drying up and our garage got flooded so that we couldn't park our cars in there. (Our garage still has a puddle, but we can now park in there). Jeffy was beside himself all weekend. He hates storms. We had him hiding in the bathroom for a lot of Sunday. I hear we got almost 5 inches of rain by this morning. Yikes. Steins, where a lot of our plants are from, had 2 feet of water in their outside plant area with 2 inches in the store. Guess we won't be going there for a little while.
Here are some random pictures of Jeffy and Churchill:

I had a really nice weekend. Got a lot of knitting done and all of the planting done in the yard I wanted to. Of course, it didn't hurt that I decided the day before, on a whim, to take Friday afternoon off. My friend, Kyle, brought over some orange daylily plants he was dividing. I found a place for them. Then, when Paulette and I were getting ready to go to see the Sex and the City movie yesterday, I looked in the backyard and there was Kyle, abandoning more of them. I think I'll put them along the driveway side of the house.
Wendy on Wendy Knits! is having a summer haiku contest on her blog. Sadly, I thought of one after the contest was closed. So, now you guys are going to have to read it!
Summer, hot outside.
I knit filmy lace inside
Huh, and when I was going to school I just hated making this stuff up.
