First is the cat you allow into your home participating in her favorite pastime.
The second is finding an impostor in your tray of sunflower seeds. Yes, the ubiquitous stink bug.
The shower went very well and was really nice. I cut the lawn with the little mower before leaving and everyone was picking the maples' whirly gigs from my hair, plus those other hangy things. Hey. I can't see the back and it's easy to get caught in this mess. Having it at Pizza Joe's was brilliant! Everyone likes pizza, there were several varieties, salad, drinks and cake, and a really nice private room perfect for a small party. When I came home, I planted. This year I decided on all bright yellow marigolds called Janie and I love the darker yellow. This nursery had healthy bushy plants, 4 to a pack instead of 3 at our other place. I'm tired of red geraniums and white petunias every year and like the pop of yellow. When planting in my wheelbarrow, we have slits cut in the bed and I use heavy landscape fabric to line it. Folding and stapling the corners makes it deeper so I can add more dirt and hold it all in. Mulch and moss cover the edges when done.
My guy Ed will be here soon for the final coat of mud. I wish all of this dust would be a one time deal, but hubby said to do one room at a time. He knows that when I have too many decisions at once I get confused and it all comes to a halt, so his advice was spot on.
Thanks for all the compliments about my stitches being so nice! The reason I removed that line of letters and stitched again, is because the rest of the alphabet was the same color for every two letters, and this line's error was each letter being different. It bugged me.
Ed's here. Need to hang the sheets again.
Thanks for visiting - enjoy your Monday.
