I fixed my phone last night, by restarting it, and spotted the first black snake of the year – at least for me
Yesterday, my phone was “stuck” at 55% all day long. I have no idea why… I was doing my normal morning routine – checking email, Facebook messages, uploading photos and memes – and noticed my phone was at 55%, which I thought was weird. It’s never lost that much power so quick, but I stuck it on the charger anyway. I got busy doing some things while it charged. Came back a little while later and it was still at 55%. Eventually, I changed the charger and moved it to a different plug… and went to Home Depot to get some rock and sand. When we got back, it was still at 55%. At this point I was beginning to think I was going to have to go to cricket to replace it.
I got busy on my computer.
Then, I decided to restart it. I was already prepared to have to replace it, so taking the chance of restarting it and it not coming back on was a chance I had to take. But it worked and came back at 100%. I have no idea what happened, why it did that, but I sighed a sigh of relief when it came back from the brink.
This morning, I took a bucket of sand out to my front garden and was looking around when I heard some rustling coming from the garden. I looked, thinking it was a bird scavaging for food when I saw the tail end of a black snake.
Of course, I didn’t have my cell phone with me, nor did I have any shoes on. I went back in the house to grab my cell phone, hoping I could find it again. I didn’t put shoes on either. I’m not worried about a black snake bite… I stay far enough away and am aware enough that I don’t really have to worry about it biting me, always aware of where it is. It was really more concerned about finding food than about me, and as long as it doesn’t feel threatened and doesn’t smell fear on me, I have no worries about it striking. It’s just come out of hibernation, so it’s hungry.
It’s always exciting, seeing a black snake. At least for me, and especially the first one of the year. Hopefully, today continues to be a good one…
Hope you have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by!
