Good morning, another beautiful sunny comfy day Loving the beautiful summer weather. The painter finished all the walls yesterday, we went with a light yellow and it’s lovely. They should be starting the ceilings today, pine shiplap boards, can’t wait to see that. Sears delivered our new stove and refrigerator the night before last and they are in the boxes on our porch until kitchen cabinets and counters are in. Doggie Danny has vet appt. today, needs a few shots this time, including rabies. There has been 4 incidents with rabid skunks and a fox in towns nearby us. It… Read more »

Hi Jenn…..Pleased your little house is at last taking shape you could be in by Christmas.lol
Rabies I had no idea you had problems with that where you live Jenn must be a bit worrying when you have animals as well. Hope Danny did not complain too much at the vets. blowkiss bigsmile

Last year an older man had his front door open and a rabid animal came in attacking him. He had to beat it with something he had in the kitchen. Horrible. I feel for the poor animal that has rabies. Some people see an wild animal running towards them and they think it’s cute. Bottom line, run as fast as you can if a wild animal, like raccoon comes towards you.

Hi Jenn, yellow is nice its uplifting, my hall and stairs are a soft butter yellow and when I wake up it makes me feel happy ! Gosh lots of goodies to open and try out. I watch all the Animal Cops from Houston, Detroit and Phoenix and see how important shots are for dogs, so much more to worry about over there when we really don’t have anything ! I bet Danny just can’t wait to get to the vets, lol my cat used to put all four legs out straight so we couldn’t get her in the carrier,… Read more »

Danny is not a fan of the vets. They are wonderful with him there. He has his quirks and one is he won’t walk on bare floors. They bring out a blanket and pull him in the exam room, then when he tries to buck when they give a shot he can’t because he is sprawled out on the blanket. Love the group at our vets, they are really great.

Animals are so funny ! Willow is part feral and I got my DIL to tell the vet to be careful but she was good as gold which I found so hard to believe as I thought they would have to wrap her in a towel while she attacked, lol !

Good morning
I see below that Ice and Beryl are having cold enough temps. for the furnace to come on. And we tied a record of 107° yesterday and going to be 109° today.
I had a prickly pear margarita last night, Rick made the juice from the cactus fruit. Then we had fish tacos from Walleye pike that DH brought back from S. Dakota.

We are 68F which sounds good for us but it doesn’t seem like it but the sun has just come out and it might be a good day. Next week is supposed to be good but we shall see ! I love fish but not in a tacos but maybe Rick’s are a lot nicer than the ones we buy which taste like nothing and are like leather, lol !

Good morning Ardy, oh those temperatures would be suffocating to me. Whew fire fire The south too, Kathy is getting very hot weather and FL is bad I’ve read.
Fish tacos have become popular around here in the past couple years. We have haddock in most of the ones in local restaurants. Glad you had a yummy meal. The drink must have been refreshing in the heat blowkiss

It is very hot in the afternoons but, its part of living in the desert i guess. I feel sorry for the states getting this heat that arent used to it.
I am not sure if i would want to experience MN winters again though.

Good morning Beryl, Jenn, Ardyth, Kathy.
My CH kicked in last night for an hour it was that cold crazy weather to be sure.
Cold but sunny start to the day but that wind is taking the edge off the temp.
Our landscape man not turning up today and it is going to be a dry day, he will return tomorrow when we are expecting heavy rain once again. cry
Not seen our heard from Beryl hope she is ok.

It doesn’t look like I will get it though. I was in the middle of a job in the garden when the rain started and I have been dying to get back to it to finish what I started, making a new place for the bird feeding station but as with a lot of jobs it was more than I thought and I keep looking out the window at it but need to feel right to get back to it minus rain of course, lol !

Ardy, people do that in Florida with the Kumquat trees in FL. Many people have them on their lawns or abandoned places have trees in the yard. My sis Barb makes the best Kumquat pie I’ve ever had. There is a Kumquat festival in Dade City every February that we have gone to, so many Kumquat desserts. Yummy! Glad Rick was willing to take the time to pick and use some so they do not all go to waste. cheese

What did Rick think of your influence over us…LOL I saw your post on my kindle ( I can’t type on it ) with Rick peeling prickly pears, what are those things? Are they good?
Yes, lobster boats bring in traps to drop in the morning and pull them late day or in the next morning. If they leave overnight they risk someone pulling their traps and taking their lobsters. Fishermen are VERY territorial and I’ve heard some very wild stories including shootings over traps and territory of fishermen.

He just laughed that i was the cause of unhealthy eating…..LOL cheese love
What you saw on my FB post was prickly pear cactus fruit. Two years ago he just made PP juice and i had a margarita. This year he turned it into BBQ sauce and it was delicious. Tonight i will have a margarita.

Sounds very good, I’ll have to see if they carry them in stores around here. I don’t think so I don’t remember ever seeing them. eyeroll

I doubt you will find them in your stores, i dont believe they sell them in our stores. He went down the street to an apartment complex and picked them. If they arent picked the birds eat them or they just fall to the ground later……..there are still a “ton” of them left…..it was very messy and you have to be careful not to get stuck with the spines.
