It’s been too long

Finally there were enough days without rain that we were able to go to Trenoweth. Having still not figured out what to do about the 5 foot deep hole in the middle of the driveway, we’re having to drive in the servants entrance which takes you through the pasture. When there’s a lot of rain it turns into a mud bath. The thought of getting stuck put us off.

I was a little nervous wondering what had happened in the past 5 or 6 weeks, had rats invaded and chewed up all our furniture to make warm cozy beds, or had cockroaches and scorpions made it their home.

Thank goodness none of the above. All was as we had left it. We had seen rodent activity under the kitchen sink, but it seems the peppermint smelling rodent repellent actually works. Who would’ve thought rats don’t like peppermint.

DeAun set about cutting the hardiboard which hopefully the rodents will not be able to chew through under the sink

While I worked on cleaning up the guest bedroom. It even has a built in ironing board and sleeve board with inset plug and shelf for the iron. I wonder who the original owners of the house were?

Not that we need to iron anything when we're there,

That’s all for now, pretty mellow visit, but a wonderful weekend.
