We’ve had our AC on for days now – very unusual for us. The porch remains my favorite spot even though it’s pretty hot – low 90’s. Gardening is really not fun but Rick continues to weed his vegetables. I quit. Remember last year and those 59 hills of pumpkins, the peppers, cucumbers, onions and tomatoes that I grew? Not this year – my peas are about done and then I’m going to mow that area down. Ella and Dawson have their pumpkins at the far end. My bum knee doesn’t like to weed the garden.
I’ll bet you’re wondering about the lone gosling – I can’t believe he’s still alive! And his “groupies” will not let me get close enough for a decent photo. Here’s what I did get.
A RugAlong Reader asked about using prints – yes, of course you can use prints – I’m just trying to use up what strips I already have cut and they happen to be wovens. The next rug I start will be a combination of prints with wovens.
I haven’t had too many emails so you all must be working on your assignment. That’s good! My days have been too busy lately to sit at the machine until last night. This is a tub of plackets I cut off shirts. I’ve been wondering why I kept them.
I’m trying something but don’t know it it will work – here’s my first step.
It felt so good to sit at the machine again!
I’m asking for your opinion – if you have cats, do you use Frontline for fleas? Do you think it’s effective? If not Frontline, what do you use? How about for dogs? Does anyone use the Seresto collar? Telly and Hazel have the collar and are always itching and scratching. I bathe Hazel and surely I would see fleas on that little white wet body but I’ve only ever seen two when she was on my lap. I’ve been cleaning and washing for a couple of days now. So much work! I’m calling my vet when I finish this post.
I have a great book right now – in fact I’d like to read this morning rather than clean. Haha! No surprise there. I’ll post the book when I finish.
That’s all from the farm, Folks! The weather is hot and humid which means the corn is growing and that’s what it’s all about in North Iowa!
