I've been calling our home the aunt hill because there are four aunts who live here. For any Louisa May Alcott fans out there: yes, I did get this nick name from her book Eight Cousins.
Recently we have acquired a different kind of ant, the creepy crawly kind. They've been marching in looking for water. It was 102 degrees today, better than it was last week but still hot enough to just about kill my plants and add to the drought we are going through.
Meanwhile the only safe place from ants is the refrigerator.
