Sunlight through Leaves

We were riding through the woods admiring the sunlight through the leaves. I think I caught a glimpse of a wild turkey. It's a lovely time of year.

Egg Gourds

These are egg gourds Larry cleaned and attached hooks to. He wants me to paint them like Christmas ornaments. I'm giving it some thought.

We cracked the pecans with the rocket cracker. I am not very far along picking the meat out.


Seven peonies need to be cut back. I got five of them today and put the trimmings on the compost pile. I'll try to finish tomorrow.


I have several trays of cuttings for my flower boxes and baskets next spring. I don't know that it's cheaper but it takes advantage of a warm, sunny closed space where I spend a lot of time when it's cold, windy, or rainy.  Larry turned on the pilot light this morningšŸ˜

Wasps Again

I've paid an exterminator several times trying to get rid of wasps in my art room. This spring we sprayed expanding foam around the electric wires and didn't have any wasps until yesterday. The room was full of wasps. Larry sprayed and today I swept and vacuumed. Larry said they may have chewed through the foam.

Another Task

Today we had lab work done and ate breakfast out. Then we checked out the sale prices of strip steaks. I washed the other outside fan and then took it to the basement along with the canning supplies. We were going to vote early but couldn't find a parking place...maybe tomorrow.
