Nothing says "Happy Holidays" like a snake moving into your walls. Yes, you read that right.
Mr. Paisley and I went out to dinner last night and upon our return I went to unlock the front door while he dragged the trash cans to the curb. It's yard trash day :-) Go green!
Currently there's a black, vintage milk can sitting to the left of the front door at the Cottage. The Cottage was built in the 40s and the exterior walls are essentially 2x4 studs clad in wood "novelty siding" on the outside and drywall or paneling on the inside. Most of the walls don't have insulation in them either. There are some places that do - any time we have had to pull off siding for one reason or another, we've insulated, but we're not at 100% yet.
It was too dark for a picture...and I was too freaked out to have taken one anyway. Plus the snake chose not to stick around.
Great...now every time I walk to the front door I'll be watching the corner for that dang serpent to pop out!
