Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice

The picture doesn’t begin to describe how many Asian beetles have infested the bedroom. The best way I’ve found to manage the problem is to vacuum them up. I then take them out immediately because they stink.

Additionally, when I turn on the outside faucet it floods into the kitchen. The house is built on a concrete slab so there’s not crawl space. We’ll have to decide if we cap that faucet or have it repaired by tearing into the wall. I need that faucet for the rose garden, not so much for watering the roses but for keeping the deer away with the motion sensor sprinkler I have out there.

There goes out tax refund, and more. Ah, the joys of home ownership.
