The good news is, I got a fantastic deal on a 5-piece patio set. Hy-Vee is having a sale: 50% off. Didn't even have to put it on my credit card. Awesome!
In cute news, there's a tiny little baby bunny living under my front steps. I don't know if it's actually a baby or just a smaller variety than most of the other bunnies around here, but in either case, it's tiny and cute. Once I knew it was there and approached slowly, it let me get relatively close it before it scurried back under the steps.
And a firefly update: before I was watching them from the patio, which wasn't very conducive because they usually stay close to the grass. Tonight I was watching them from the lawn, and it was much more satisfying. I was burning a citronella candle and I didn't know if it would affect fireflies the way it's supposed to affect mosquitoes, but it didn't seem to bother them.
I really should be paying more attention to packing and cleaning and purging the apartment, but buying things for the house is just so much more fun! Gotta sort out priorities. But I really do need to get on that lawnmowing thing before it gets too shabby.
