I finally got the rest of my bedding plants into the ground this week, so I guess I am making some progress. My vegetable garden is all up... and Mr. Resident Groundhog has already found it.. he has chewed off one cucumber hill (3 plants)...grrrr... He has avoided the trap so far (but we did catch one frisky squirrel!)
I spent most of last weekend inside... not where I wanted to be. The weather was beautiful and I really wanted to be outdoors working in the garden. However, on Friday night we seemed to be suddenly invaded by tiny ants. Yep, the ants came marching... ten by ten it seemed! So I spent a good part of both Saturday and Sunday cleaning kitchen cupboards and trying to figure out how/where they were getting in. (Never did solve that mystery.) I did however find two rogue Honey Nut Cheerios spilled in the cereal cupboard and let me tell you, the ants were all over them! Literally. All over them. So I made fast work of that... Anyway I now have very clean cupboards and the issue appears to be much better.. I hesitate to say "solved" or "cured".. don't want to jinx it!! Hubby spread some borax and sugar solution along the kitchen exterior wall/foundation and that seems to have helped considerably.

On the sewing front, there hasn't been a lot happening. I have been cutting (for a while now) 2" and 2.5" squares for a scrap quilt that a friend and I are both doing. We are sharing our fabrics for more variety; the colors are greens and blues and various lights. I love the combo of green and blue. Hubby commented that he thought it was a bit strange and I replied, "it's the colours of nature- the blue sky and the green earth." I do have a small project underway that I will share with you when the time is right... just not yet.
That's all for now. The next few days will be busy as I prepare for company next week - darling daughter is coming home for a visit. Insert big smile here....
