Life in general

Garden is mostly done, with a few exceptions.  I’ve got two baby watermelons still holding on and getting bigger, and the new pepper varieties have finally put out baby peppers, since they’re a colder hardy variety I might see if I can get away with tenting them and see if they’ll produce.

The pool walls are completely down.  Now if it would stop raining long enough for everything to dry out so we can  have a big ass gravel truck drive across the yard to delivery the gravel.

Work is still a bit crazy, I’m still covering for a co-worker with health problems, and now my “home” department is short a full time associate too.  Again.  *sigh*

I’ve been having a great deal of fun playing with my new spinning wheel.  And having to resist buying ALL THE FIBERS!!! to play with.

We found a baby Cedar Waxwing under one of our maple trees.

I couldn’t find the nest to put him back up unfortunately, and it was gone the next day.

Our fridge died, and we had to buy a new one in a hurry.

Note to self, cleaning the dog fur out the compressor intakes on a regular basis is probably a good idea.

For the first year, since we bought this house, I successfully grew Snapdragon flowers.

Aren’t they pretty?  Now to hope they’ll come back again next year…..

    The snap dragons are pretty! And here here to cleaning the pet hair from the fridge compressor…we didn’t do that the first year we had all six pets and the next year we were very surprised! We need this fridge to last!

      I sweep around it on a regular basis, but cleaning the intakes never occured to me. It doesn’t help that that old fridge was a bottom freezer unit, which means that at least one such intake was on the bottom. So I literally couldn’t see it.

    Snapdragons are so pretty and uniquely shaped.

    Even with just the cats I have to vacuum out the coils and such of my fridge at least once a year. Reminds me, it would be a good idea for me to check since I don’t really remember when the last cleaning was done.

    Too bad about the Cedar Waxwing chick. Usually the parents will hang around and feed them on the ground, but it doesn’t sound like you saw them, so maybe it was ill to begin with.
