Personally I have no problem with this, as it's one less person in our bedroom that snores!! On Sunday night/Monday morning, at 1:30am we were awoken from our sleep by Molly barking like a crazy dog. So I trot downstairs and what ever had wandered through the property had obviously gone, as I couldn't see it, but Molly was bouncing around the family room, like a dog on drugs!!
So I yelled at her, and "ushered" upstairs into our bedroom for the rest of the night. There just isn't words to describe being woken up from a deep sleep by a barking dog, well no words that I can write here anyway!
So what is interesting Molly do you think?
Yep, it's a squirrel sunning itself on the log pile. They have got a nest in there somewhere, and I am sure they take great delight in tormenting Molly by just sitting there, knowing full well she can't get off the deck!
Then to confuse the situation, another squirrel appeared in the tree.
Both squirrels were chatting back and forward, probably making fun of Molly!!
Ended up with a blister on Monday!! We have a huge willow tree at the edge of the driveway that "sheds" twigs all through the winter. So I spent an hour raking them up and carting them to the firepit and that's how I ended up with a blister on my hands!! I got around 3/4 done, so I'll finish it off today.
Dh made a start on another project on Monday. Where the old stairs were in the attic, we are going to make a linen closet, and we are also going to re-do the closet in the spare bedroom. So this means removing plaster and lathe in the linen closet and pulling down drywall in the spare bedroom closet. So another messy job, but it will be well worth it when we get it done.
The attic is on hold until the guys come back to finish off the corners in May.
Did you remember to put your money in your Daily Savings Pot?
Today's money saving tip:
If you do need to purchase some plants, be sure to buy the kinds that will pay dividends. Buy perennial plants which need dividing every 3 - 5 years.
You can also start your own cuttings from woody stemmed type shrubs. Flowers like dahlias & calla lilies come from tubers that need to be divided regularly, too. Over just a few years, an initial investment in these types of plants will yield a very full garden.
