Garden update: Out with the old in with the new.

Out with the old . . .

. . . in with the new.

My plants are no longer glorious. It is time for fall and winter colors to take their place. I have not quite decided how I am going to fill up all of my flower beds. I am still debating on doing some fall and winter vegetables.

Ant Pile

As we are planning for winter so our my most feared insects. Seriously they are mean insects. They are piling up huge ant beds all around my plants. Every time I pull up a flower they come up scrambling from the ground. Well, I am beating them up. Maybe or probably not but I am seeing a lot of dead ants. I apologize to ant lovers if there are any. I boil a large pot of water. Once it is ready I take it out and dump it on the ant piles. The other day I did it and ant eggs came spilling out as did the live ants. I came out a few hours later and there were dead ants everywhere. I know it sounds so mean but I have nightmares of these things. At least I am not using chemicals, right?

Sorry for not adding texture to my photos Ralphie. However these pictures are not shown for artistic purposes. If I beautified my ant pile or dead flowers I might just keep them there.

Brooklyn's First Day of Preschool!!!

Hooray for Brooklyn! She was so excited for her first day. But she was very nervous and would not look at me or her teachers. She has warmed up to the idea and is loving it. She even talks to her teachers now. Having her friend Miles in the class has helped her not be so shy.

Definitely Red!

I find it very funny that being one of the only people in my family without red hair, I end up with the first red headed grandchild. The more her hair grows the redder it gets. She is so much fun to have around.

Are you kidding me!

I was completely shocked when I first viewed these commercials. I thought it was a joke. I was waiting for the punch line. I love how the people slur through the line, "It is fine in moderation." This is just like the tobacco, alcohol, and coffee industries trying to tell us that these different products do have health benefits. This is a bunch of bologna. Read your labels so you can avoid products that have the High Fructose corn syrup.
