Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. — Carl Bard
I think what I like about this challenge to refocus your outlook is the goal of reworking the ending.
Life At Our House
Saturday was a rare sunny day with a brisk breeze. I decided to take advantage of it by washing all the clothes my bed wears and hanging them outside on the line. It may be the last time I get to do this before spring. I did have to do battle with all the falling leaves and baby spiders that wanted to hitchhike into the house. But it was worth it. Ahhhhh, that wonderful sundried smell!
I have sinus issues so tissue boxes are part of the household decor. And so many of them are just butt ugly. I was looking at the boxes and trying to figure out a way to cover them up and then the light bulb went off. YARN! So I found some free patterns and used a gift card I had for JoAnn’s and bought some yarn. Here is the result:
With the rest of the yarn I made another bag for my Tarot cards.
We had our first batch of Hot Sweet Cider tonight. Yummmmm….
Hey, Saver! The recipe for this is already on the blog. Go down to categories and click on Cider!
Out In The Yard
Once or twice a year we get a grey squirrel trespassing in our yard. Usually just running out and yelling at them as soon as we see them will chase them off for another year. We’re willing to share some bird food with the red squirrels, but not the greys. The reds have been having trouble around here and the greys will run them off. So when this guy came calling for the second day in a row, the Husband went out with the BB gun to scare it off. No, he didn’t kill it or wound it. Scare only.
I also got to watch doves splashing around in the bird bath a couple of days ago.
This is our header for today. Rudebeckia or Black-Eyed Susan. I scored these for $1 a piece from Lowe’s clearance rack. They were beat up and broken a bit from a storm but bounced back nicely.
Not A Mug
Soooooo, now it’s 12:15 pm. Grrrrrr. First my pics wouldn’t transfer into Media. Then they would show in the draft but not in Media. Then when I posted this the first time, it ate pictures AND text. *Sigh* I wonder what will happen this time? Please post…
