Design Team: Scrappin’ Your Heart Out
Design Theme: Gateway to Summer
Designer: The Rush Ranch
My husband has started building a little greenhouse/shed out by the garden. I am staying out of the way while the building is going on. My job is to deliver sandwiches and cold drinks. Oh – and the occasional “Great job, Honey!” I think this tiny building will be used more for storage of his various tools, than anything else, because there doesn’t appear to be any windows for sunlight in the design. I think this is like the joke about the man that buys his wife a fishing pole for her birthday, even though she doesn’t fish? So he is building a windowless greenhouse…….hummmmm. But, it keeps him active and busy, and that is good for him. He turns 74 years old this year and has not yet started to slow down. The love of my life.
You may have already heard that our dogs – two of the three – thought it an excellent idea to chase a skunk. Ugh. Douglas and Abigail were immediately put into the shower, scrubbed with Dawn dishwashing liquid and hydrogen peroxide to break up the skunk oil, and then scrubbed again. They still have a slight scent, but we will just have to tough it out for a few days until the scent finally dissipates. Of all the things that they could chase around here, they choose the skunk. And most skunk families have their babies by now, so you don’t mess with the mom and her babies.
My daughter was driving home from work late last evening, and saw a tiny kitten on the side of the road, playing and chasing bugs in the tall grass. She stopped to get it, but it wouldn’t come to her – it took off in the field, probably back to its mom. So our mission is to keep on checking in that area, to find that family of kits. Barn cats are common in a farming community, but I would much rather they be OUR barn cats because we put out feed every day for our one barn fella. I haven’t been able to tame him, but I keep working on it. People need to take better care of each other, and their animals.
I hope that you can find some use for some of my designs from this blog train, and I will release another set on July 1st.
