Painting the decks, back to school, trailcams

 Is my back ever sore, but it is all repainted! I had to lay down a second coat, as recommended. I'll leave this here, in order to remember what I used. I was quite pleased with it.

One is supposed to not replace furniture for three hours, but I don't have that option. I moved it all to the side, painted the inner portion, and moved it back carefully, painted the outside section.

I managed to get the top off of the swing, preparation for winter, standing on the now dry deck. Progress.

I saved enough stain for my chair.

JB went for a walk, as he does several times a day. He said, "It's raining, but I have all this rain gear I ought to go for a walk!"

I found some invasive gypsy moth eggs on a conifer in the front yard. 

Tired and colder in the cooler weather, they've hunkered down.

Our sumac aren't doing well. We've had a couple years of dry Augusts, but there are some leaves.
A little Isabella caterpillar...

Our granddaughters online classes begin today, Friday morning. They have mixed emotions. 

I caught myself on the trailcam! Soon I will be mulching leaves.

Nutmeg grabbed a shrew in the forest.

Our coyote was back, three days later. He was snuffling in the bushes. The cats may have left the shrew there. He's a good clean-up crew. I've not seen him in the daytime.

...years ago we had lot of gypsy moths and then they seemed to disappear, but now they are back!
