R.I.P. Little Dust Bunnies

April 12, 2016

Good morning.  It's warm out, but it is gray and wet.  The rain is starting and should last until later this afternoon.  The rest of the week, however, should be looking pretty good.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Well, yesterday turned out to be quite an interesting day.  SIL Eddie came by so that we could discuss the electrical work that needs to be done before the deck and porch can be built.  It seems that the biggest problem will be the wiring that goes to the shed.  It all has to be done over.  That means a new trench has to be dug, along with all new wiring and covers.  Oh my.

Today Eddie will go shopping to get all the materials needed, and hopefully tomorrow he can get it all fixed new.  This whole porch business is turning into a wicked big project. 

My dust bunnies are in mourning today at the loss of so many of their friends and family.  Sometime around midnight last night Pogo decided he wanted to have his supper.  (He was not in the mood to eat it earlier.)  While he was eating, I thought maybe I should use this time to do a bit of dusting. 

I proceeded to start on the TV console.  While attempting to spray some polish, I broke the whole spray top off the bottle.  Hmmm, I'll have to find a small spray bottle to transfer the polish to.  By the time I was finished with the console, Pogo had finished eating his meal.  It was now time for us to go to bed.

Now that there is room in the recycle barrels, I think I'll go through another stack or two of catalogues and magazines.  I had to stop working on them last week because the recycle barrels were full.  I may wipe out another batch of dust bunnies too. 

A few days ago, I treated myself to something special.  I ordered a pretty flower ring from Choxi.com.  It is sterling silver and the stones are Spessartite (orange garnets) with teeny tiny diamond chips in the centers of the flowers.  The orange is my favorite color and the garnets are for my daughter Kerri.  Isn't this pretty?


I have a couple more birdie photos to share that I took during the last snowfall.  The first photo is a Blue Jay and the second photo is a Tufted Titmouse.



Well, the morning is slipping away, and I really should get busy and do a few chores before I run out of steam.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Oh, did you make a little flower bouquet or mini wreath for the dustbunnies ????
Kind of strange time to attack the dustbunnies, around midnight, but on the other hand, if you had time and had to wait for Pogo, why not LOL.
Your ring looks very pretty. I don´t wear rings anymore, only my wedding ring and seal ring I got from my parents when I had 18 years old.
It sounds as you say, really serious work to have your little porch!
What a wonderful thing that you have Eddie who can tackle the electric stuff.
opefully your weather improves and it becomes dry, it will be so much better for Eddie to work.
I soon will get dressed and have to do some grocerie shopping.
Have a fantastic day.
Hug
