Weeds: There’s an APP for That

August 8, 2011

After hitting END, wait about an hour.  A vehicle appears in your driveway.  Late the next day, all the weeds are gone.  It’s a miracle.  There was one little problem.  Sweetums programmed it to remove the ferns.  I didn’t discover it until it was too late.  What do I do?  Is there an app for butt boils? 

It even weeded around the volunteer Impatiens.

 

And whatever these are.

 

 

 

 

 

I still have to chop at some bushes.  They’re blocking my view of the water.  I attacked them three or four years ago.  Sweetums almost had a heart attack.  Well, they grew back.  And I’m going to do it again.

Ice onthe Creek

January 5, 2008

I was surprised to see all this ice when I got up.

It wasn’t windy and I was feeling better so I went on a walk with the dog.  We walked down the main road and then cut through the woods to the river.  The water was really moving.  Gus likes to run along the beach when the tide is down, but today he wasn’t at all interested.  We were out for an hour.  It wasn’t bad, but I was glad to get home and get warm.  There’s nothing like a good cup of coffee on a cold day.

I started sewing on the table runner.  Zippo helped.  He had a lot to say.

  Look.  I made a snowflake.  I programed it into my machine and put several on the top.  I really like this machine. 

I got some knitting done.

  After I finish this hat, I am going to make gloves to go with the hat I made last week.

I’m pretty tired.  I should go to bed.
