Ha, ha, Mother Nature, regardless of how much
rain you threw at us earlier this year leaving us
with soggy, unworkable ground, just look at this . . .
I planted some bush bean seeds and noticed tiny little
beans hanging down beneath the fat leaves so I've
been checking, crossing my fingers that the deer did
not find them first and here they are, the first picking
accompanied by a couple of small peppers and a
tomato that the bugs didn't get.
I planted another row to see how far along I can get
plus the pole beans are winding their way across
the cattle panels. Just at deer height so we'll see
if anything develops there.
In other news, I have a couple of days off in October but
my husband is working. Since he isn't paid unless he works,
he doesn't have those days off too. So, what am I going to do?
I decided to plan a neighborhood painting party like we
did last year at another neighbor's house. We chose an acrylic
painting off the internet and tried to copy it while we had
some snacks and maybe a sip of wine or two.
No one really cared if their painting was good-
as long as the wine was.
A friend and I also took a water color class at our
local library, not this picture but one I tried
later at home. I do have water colors if anyone is
interested in that rather than the acrylic.
Again, good doesn't matter, it's just all fun.
Then I thought a couple of us with new cameras could
go on a Photo Safari. No, not in Africa but in the wilds
of St Louis County!
OOOOh, Ahhhhh you might be thinking.
A trip of a life time. And you would be right!
First we will drop off some donations to the Wildlife
Rescue center, things like paper towels and cotton balls
that they need to care for the injured ones.
Then we can go into the park walk around until
something tickles our fancy. Maybe a pretty bird
or a colorful lizard or babbling brook and a spooky old tree.
(You gotta work with what you have! LOL )
There is also the Wild Bird Sanctuary or Lone Elk park if
that doesn't pan out.
Anyone else have some fun, cheap ideas for a
stay at home vacation?
