I knew things would look better in the morning and not only look better, I feel better after a trip to the chiropractor. It always makes me wonder why I wait so long to call for an appointment – he had a cancellation at 5:45 so I grabbed it and feel better already.
Before I forget – thank you for continuing to click on the ads you see on the blog – the proceeds definitely help defray blog costs.
To answer everyone’s question – yes, Orkin will be back in 30 days to check the bait traps and re-bait. It’s at that time we’ll be able to see how much poison has been eaten and it does take awhile to kill off several generations. So even though I saw three live rats, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re not eating the poison bait. I have a 6 month contract at this time and I can renew it repeatedly. The inspector will also look in the attic and the crawl space above the quilt shop. So yes, their work is guaranteed. But it’s not as if they trap and take away the rats. After eating the poison rats will go elsewhere to die – maybe even back into the tunnels underneath the barn floor.
My day was complete with a stop at my favorite thrift store – here’s what I found. This rooster picture for my kitchen – $6.
I need two more small pictures on either side. This takes the place of two pictures that fell down the first day – I took them to the frame shop today that’s open only M-W-F 1-5. I was there at approximately 1:45 – nobody there. I get so fed up with businesses who I assume WANT my business but make it nearly impossible to DO business with.
And this embroidered picture for my needlework wall – also $6.00. I feel like I need to rescue these old beauties if the maker’s family dropped it off at the thrift store as a donation because nobody wanted it. So sad but nice for me.
Here are a couple of reader quilts –
Here are the pictures above the sink – finally hung.
Time for an evening beer! All is well – please don’t worry about me.
