Volleyball is Back!

Hi neighbors!

So good to see you today.  I just have to share a little about my Mother's Day.  I hope all of you had as good a day as I did.  For breakfast my older two daughters made omelets and homemade cinnamon rolls.  They were yummy!

Next on our list was church.  We all go together.  The message was really good.  Next was lunch.  We had Terriyaki Chicken, fried rice, and lo mein, followed by chocolate chip cookies with ice cream for dessert.

Then came gifts. The card was huge!  My children gave me rocks for Mother's Day.  Can you believe it?  Seriously, we have been re-doing our kennels and I needed rock.  They purchased 40 more bags for me!  I also received a nice new purse, a pair of memory foam sneakers and a message board that my daughter made for me out of an old window frame.  See the pictures.  You attach messages with mini clothes pins!

Here is the message board.  She purchased the window frame at a yard sale and sanded it down.  After painting it, she attached wire to the back.  She had fun choosing the fence, chickens and apples to decorate it with.  You use the mini clothes pins to attach your messages and notes.  I can't decide where to hang it yet.

After a quick nap for some of the family, the rest of us worked on crafts, we headed out for some volleyball!  We finally have weather nice enough to play.  I played the first round and then took pictures for the next challenge.  I think I managed to get some nice ones.

Leap, leap!

We had a really nice family day.  I hope all of you had a nice day spent with family and friends.  Thanks again for stopping in.  See you soon!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
