Friday I caught Serenity at the theater. Excellent movie--I highly recommend it to all. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, so I won't give any details.

Saturday I just spent reading and screwing off. Had to make 2 trips to the bookstore--one in the morning, and another in the afternoon. Finished 3 books, so now I need to go again and get some more. I'm waiting for about 6 different authors to finish books I know are in progress right now--not including the next Harry Potter, the two I'm waiting for L. Neil Smith to release, and about 7 different authors I'm hoping will be releasing new ones soon. Of course, that's just the fiction side--I haven't included the non-fiction side. I admit it, I'm a junkie.

Sunday I spent the range testing out my new scout mount for my K31. The scope mount seems to work pretty well. I'm fine-tuning the scope--I've got the elevation down pretty well at 25 yards, I still need to work on the windage. I'd like to find a 500 yard range to really work on it, but for now I'll probably just have to try to get it as tight as possible at 100 yards. This is the first time I've mounted and adjusted a scope--I've always just used iron sights in the past.

Thursday evening I found a 5 foot snakeskin shed on the threshold of my kitchen. It looks like a blacksnake. The entire skin is in perfect condition--I don't think I've ever seen one so complete. I have been having a problem with mice, and I noticed this weekend the mice don't seem to be in evidence anymore. I haven't seen the snake, but I have seen some evidence that it's still around.

I also noticed that there are a good many spiders around my house. I was going to get some spray, but then I saw that a few of them had some small scorpions in their webs, so I reckon I'll let the spiders stay as well. Between the spiders and the snakes, it seems I'm relatively free of scorpions and mice. Ah, the joy of country living!
