I really have got it figured out this time. The skunk shows up in the egg boxes every night at eight o'clock. So if I want to get this weeks' baby quilt done this week, I'm going to have to work on it during the day, before he shows up to disrupt the household.
Having to work my quilting time in around the well -fed vermin's schedule is very annoying -- almost as annoying as realizing that the chickens have been laying eggs. Hopefully hubby can solve the problem tonight.
A couple of people have misunderstood me and thought that the skunk was in the kitchen. If there was a skunk in my house, I don't know what I'd do. All I've had to handle so far has been a possum in the bathroom, and that was more than enough of a thrill!
Now can someone please explain to me why the vermin is so punctual? When we first moved into this house, a skunk came through under our bedroom window at 3am every morning like clockwork. Through the window, the smell would wake my husband up and he'd wake me up. He eventually changed his routine -- either that or we learned to sleep through it.
This new skunk, though, is being more persistent.
