The rain has stopped temporarily, and the cooler weather has moved in.  It now feels like fall.  The horses even noticed and enjoyed the cooler temps.  I saw them from the window raising cane. I went to get the camera.  I didn't make it out before they were done.  I did get Scout looking at me as if to say, "ha, ha, you didn't catch us in the act!"

I have been in a pretty weird mood for the last week, so, I haven't felt like really blogging at all.  I took some of my plants out earlier in the season and the other day I decided to take the rest out while it was raining and wash some of the dust and other things that collect on them.  I will spray them with some stuff to get rid of any bugs that they may have.  I have that horrible scale bug all over some of my plants and that makes one heck of a mess.   I can wash some of my plants off by hand but, I have a couple of Jade plants, I would be washing them for ever!  So, I took them outside to wash them off.  They say that it won't work with rain water but I am going to give it a try.  With the slightly chillier weather, I am hoping that will take care of it.  Scale leaves a sticky residue all over the plant and any surface it is on, the floor, counters etc.  I had to wash the whole area that my plants usually are at.

I have been weaving the scarves that I have had on my little loom.  I had stopped weaving for a while then realized that a very nice blogger friend wanted a scarf and that I better get my behind in high gear and get it done!

Today is my shopping day, and I will probably get my hair done also.  The grey is showing through. :=(  Then back to weaving and tomorrow is the day I get ready for the hubby to come home for the weekend.  Change sheets on the bed, pick up the house (so, it can get messed up), cook a meal that will satisfy a hungry man, and so forth.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

You have been busy! I don't have plants inside the house and I don't miss the mess either. Plus we feel better! Scale is hard to get rid of...hope to see photos of your weaving. You sound depressed...get some sunshine maybe that will help!...Oh and getting rid of grey too...I have embraced mine:)

Indoor plants, not my favorite I have one I haven't killed yet it was given to me and I didn't want it but have it for now. I wanna see more weaving pics, that just interests me to no end. I still want a saddle blanket if you still make them....please :)

lisa said...

Crystal, I actually have one that I wove a couple of years ago. It is just a little larger than the normal ones. I will blog the saddle blanket and let me know. I will send you the measurements.

I finally decided to go grey. What a relief. I rather like my gray self!!
But not telling you to do so...I think it's important to do what makes you feel good.
