Young groundhog is delicious, just saying.

I've heard that, but am sure they're not interested.

Skunks hate mothballs. You can get them to move out by countering stink with stink.

Years ago our new neighbor in Keller found a skunk in her clothes dryer. They'd just moved in to their new house, and the outer cover on the dryer vent hadn't been installed. If I remember correctly, she closed the door softly and the skunk left without spraying. She had her husband install that vent cover immediately.

Years after that, and after many more families had moved into the area, John and I found that a mamma skunk had raised a litter of babies under our concrete porch. We didn't know they were there until the half-grown young ones came out for a stroll.

We do live with critters, even when in the city.

Ordered this 5x7 indoor/outdoor rug to go here...

I think it will be pretty.

I agree with Mimi. That space looks very inviting and the rug will pull it together nicely.
Enjoy your weekend.

Had the last of my spring medical appointments this morning...you know how it is, male or female, you see your physicians and dentist, then also have to have the preventative prodding, poking and/or X-raying of relevant body parts.

All important, but I feel I have been consumed with these the past couple of months...because, I have.

Had my last one this morning, and there actually are no appointments of any kind on my calendar for next week..just Moraine View.

Interstate goes in this afternoon for its scraping down and recaulking of the roof, tho the last such application 3 years ago has still not yet leaked, so I hope Cummins does as good a job as Peterbilt...it is something Doug always did, but I cannot, so must hire it out to those who can.

Need to get my hair trimmed yet, the garage door opener installed and my rock border down (must be getting close, as the city has been out to mark utilities in the yard), then little house tasks are essentially completed and I can begin preparing for heading out on my next long trip...mid-June, or thereabouts.

I'm ready, and starting to get excited about it.

Made some more shell pavers yesterday for one of the back yard beds, saving back just enough shells to make one more for my Iowa City granddaughter...who has a "secret garden" at her house, where Grandma promised a shell paver would be provided.

I found a lot of olives this last trip, of all sizes and colors, starting at Tybee Island...where my first venture out on the beach turned up not a one, and they are the State shell of South Carolina, you know, so I have a particular fondness for them.

Walking and talking to Doug about that beautiful island, where we'd never been together, and he being very much in my heart after the visit to his memorial bench the day before, I said to him honey, help me find an olive shell...not that it's his job as now-spirit-hubby, to help me find olive shells, I was just being bit silly....but when we returned to the beach the next morning, it looked as if an entire bed of olives had washed up overnight.

I didn't pick them all up, as someone else might want some , but I picked up a lot of them, and continued to find them the rest of my beach time that trip.

Coincidence? I think not.

Tybee will become a return-to place each year now, and I have two weeks reserved there next year already.

My neighbors to the south have also bought a home there, and are moving this Saturday...both of them university professors, one of whom has accepted a high powered position at a university in Savannah, a big enough deal that they are moving them from here to there.

I'm very happy for them, but they have lived next door about 20 years, and I am sad to see them go.

But...life.


Maggie

I have a serious sweet tooth, ya know, and homemade desserts only occasionally being available to indulge in, thank goodness , I am always on the lookout for something with nutritional value o keep around that will also fill the sweet treat bill.

Found these in WM, and they are delicious

The chocolate coating is very, very light, but still there ...and I mixed them with their roasted and lightly sea-salted ones. Yum!

Turning this prayer shawl in this afternoon, I have to say this is one of the prettiest ones I have made thus far, and will use this stitch pattern again.

Tho a simple pattern, it did not seem to lend itself well to talking and visiting while crocheting, as I tore a couple of rows out due to mistakes about a half dozen times in the process of making this one.

Doesn't really show in the photo, but the yarn is lovely soft green.

Probably my last for awhile...

Hey there Maggie!!! I love the rug and you new space... that pattern on the shawl looks like shells!!.. and your pavers are beautiful!!! You are multi talented for sure.... for the sweet tooth thing, I make granola bars and add chocolate chips... and cover the top with a thin layer of dark chocolate... since its mostly oats and nuts and dried fruit I consider it almost healthy... it's wonderfully delicious... oh, and I add candied ginger... ok, I'm going to go get a piece!! Hugs and love to you..pats for the pup.. keep having fun!!

Hi there, Gail.

I keep Kind bars around, too, which are a yummy but still nutritious treat.

Yes, I am loving the new space, and my rug arrives on Thursday.

I have a new outlet in my garage, now, so the garage door opener my kids bought me is being installed tomorrow.

I'm becoming very high tech, with a car that makes and receives phone calls, and now an electronic garage door opener.

Maggie

My yard guy says he will begin my rock border later this week...yeayyy!

Going to start pulling up the rotting landscape timbers and marking where I want new or revised borders to go....still need to do something with the Lily-landing-pad I created a few years ago, off the back stoop, and think I will put River rock within that area.

She killed the grass, leaving mud for her to step in in wet weather , so I poured down gravel and put cement pavers over that....time to upgrade it a bit, and river rock will be pretty, can also add seashells at will, like the front bed.

I found this some time ago, and it spoke to me.

It applies to so many things in life...and, it's okay.

I love the quote! That is the truth. Too old for nonsense & drama.

Hope you & Lily have a good day.

Jane
