Okay, where did July go?
I can't believe it is almost August. Time is flying by.
It has been the rainiest, gloomiest, foggiest time here in the NC mountains,
I can remember since moving here in the late 70's.
We have had so much rain!
The last couple of days have felt more like fall with temps in the 50's at night.
Pog and I did a marathon day of yard work yesterday before rain came back today.
It is like living in a jungle because of so much moisture.
The yard has been mowed twice a week when it is not wet and the weeds grow overnight.
There is just no way to keep up right now.
We are still cleaning up storm damage from June.
All the work we did yesterday, weed eating and cutting up trees
has made for sore backs and legs!
I think we are getting too old for that type of work.
Maybe it is time we started thinking about moving out of the woods!
We have had a couple of visitors to our woods.
The deer is welcome, even if she is eating my hosta's
but this guy is very unwelcome.
Here he is checking out an empty bird box on the tree in our back yard.
We are rethinking getting another big outside dog now,
especially if he or she keeps coming back!
I've had to take a break so I can clean house for company coming this weekend, so I will leave you with one more hint of the new door greeter I am working on.
Oh! Almost forgot to show you this great bag of wool remnants,
I got from http://www.heavens-to-betsy.com/
I love getting remnants like this for my dolls and stitching!
This is very nice wool and on sale right now.
I'll be back next week with pics of the finished door greeter.
Wishing you a great weekend!
