Yesterday was a day of running into town a couple of things, but I did manage to get one important - if rather late - job done in the evening. I burned a fungus. I really should have done it earlier in the year, but just didn't have the chance until last night. Mostly because … Continue reading Wasps, fire and other things
While doing my rounds this morning, I made sure to check where I'd found wasps while trying to clean up yesterday. I was surprised by what I saw. First, there was the hole in the ground. I didn't expect to see an actual hole like that. Also, do you see the light brown stuff scattered … Continue reading Follow up: ground wasps
This morning I went to get a meter reading to submit to the electric company. Being rather short, I tend to see more glare on the cover than the numbers themselves. My solution has been to hold my phone up and take several pictures. The display cycles, with a short blank period in between, but … Continue reading Yikes!

First, we got a call from the tech guy, saying that he would be here between 1 and 3pm to see what's going on with our secondary internet account.

There is an employee at the hardware store that I was very happy … Continue reading The next steps

This morning, I got a call from the pharmacy, letting me know my husband's painkillers were ready to pick up. Oh, what wonderful news to start the day! … Continue reading I’ll be feeling this tomorrow!
A few days ago, I mentioned in a post about getting bit by a horsefly while by the garage door. Since then, I've looked at the wound and thought, that doesn't really look like a horsefly bite. Maybe a spider bite? I'd been walking into spider webs at the corner of the garage door a … Continue reading So I was wrong about that…
A couple of photos from when we were exploring the native plants garden. This bee photo was pure serendipity. It was the first of several I took, in quick succession, and the only good one of the bee! This was in a structure near the native plants garden that I think is actually there to … Continue reading Pollinators
