Hot and Humid

It's hot and humid here in Northern Ontario---I hate it--but it's weather we'll cry for come mid-January, right???

JK...aka my hubby, is giving his shop a "face lift".  He's putting on new siding...which now will match the house.  We're getting "closer and closer" to putting up a "FOR SALE" sign in front of the house...MAYBE!!!  The problem is....the cost of living is so darn good here...that it makes it almost impossible to leave Elliot Lake.  Every where else, it is so darn costly to live!  Get the picture???  :(

Crocheting...hmmmmmm.  A dead subject right now.  I haven't picked up a crochet hook in almost a week--and I'm working on a bath puff that should take me just a few hours to make!! 

Enjoy your day...I'm going out for coffee with a few friends.  Back home, I'm sure JK will put me to work!!  ;)

Rainy Night in EL

We had some much needed rain move through last night....and in all honesty, we could use a few days of soft rain.  The "bush" is so dry.  No rain, no blueberries!!!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

My vegetable garden is doing very well...other than the one tomato plant Mr. Raccoon snapped off and left...everything seems to be in GREAT shape.  I'm hoping the chipmunks will continue to ignore it!!!! 

We made a fast trip to Michigan to visit my parents.  They both look good for their mid 80's.  Still self-sufficient...but don't do much anymore.  They love to travel, but keep it local and try to be home before dark.  This aging process doesn't appear to be much fun!!! 

Well, better get some clothes on the line....hopefully they'll dry in this humidity!!!

Life sure has a way of getting busy...don't you agree??  I've missed my blogging time...but then I haven't exactly been a well-organized person!!!

My DH built me a raised garden...and it's doing amazingly well.  I have several tomato and pepper plants, along with some basil, peas and zucchini.  We also put in some marigolds...I have read they do a great job repelling some of the insects!!!  And they happen to be my hubby's favorite flower!! 

My female cat...Magnolia, has been ill.  Seems my other cat, "Psycho" Sunny bit her on the butt...left 3 puncture wounds and it became terribly infected.  So, Maggie spent the night at the Vet's office and came home the next day with a drain tube.  She wasn't home 5 minutes when Sunny decided the tube just wasn't something that should be there, and tried to pull it out of her.  Back to the Vet...and she spent the remainder of the week there.   :(   She's been home for 5 days now...and is doing MUCH better.  Poor little thing!!!

Other than that...I've been doing some crocheting.  Finished a few hats and I'm now working on a bath puff. 

I'm seriously thinking of quitting my job and taking the summer off.  DH wants to do some traveling, a GREAT idea!!  I'm just hoping I can find another job in the fall!!! 

Until next time...and I promise not to wait a month....enjoy your day!!!
