We finally got a break from the rain and the mosquitoes to enjoy some Deck Living.
I enjoy just sitting on the Deck with the girls and let the serenity of our little garden take over 🙂
This season has been a stinker. Once the alpha males were voted off by the coalition of Dom and Wendell the game became “All Hail Dom and Wendell”. Puppy still loves Donathan who is the only one actually trying to stay in it and not just wanting to be Dom and Wendell’s third. The only saving grace is Dom and Wendell need to make moves against each other or it just become…the jury thinks one or the other was better. That’s not about playing the game, it’s a popularity contest at that point.
So far this season hasn’t had anything I would consider Epic worthy moves :(**
So I have been working on our yard this year. I’m doing a small Victory Garden.
Yes, I said Victory Garden. I was raised with parents who grew up in the depression and survived WWII. I use language like Victory Garden, Cat’s Meow and gams. I also enjoy the styling of Benny Goodman, lol.
Last year we had a really bad mosquito problem. It was our first year in the house so I had no idea what to expect until it happened. The mosquitoes were just awful and made it difficult to enjoy the deck and yard. This year I’ve planted mosquito repelling plants like Citronella, Rosemary and Marigolds. I’m also going to spray the yard with lemon juice. This should kill off a bunch of those critters in a healthy way. The dogs share the space with us so I have to stay away from things like pesticides. Wish me luck!
Last night a very nasty and vivacious storm blew through our part of town. The clouds were amazing and the subsequent rainbows (not caught on picture) were just incredible.
The rain was torrential and we missed getting any hail. The thunder and lightning were just like the storms we sometimes get in July. Very cool.
All in all, too bad. The storms didn’t deter me from voting. Got it done and the storm made it so I didn’t have to water the garden….Win Win!
I love April. It’s the best time to bird watch. I’m not particularly into Ornithology but I love the colors of the birds. All of the colors of the birds shine out in contrast to the browns and grays of winter.
I’m going back to this location next week to see what other birds are in town. Ahhhhhh…..SPRING!
I was reading that The Crown is re-casting the leads to different actors. Claire Foy, Matt Smith and Vanessa Kirby were perfectly cast as the Queen, Prince Phillip and Princes Margaret so why in heaven would anyone mess with that?
Aging the characters isn’t a good enough excuse. Have the producers ever heard of makeup? I’m really having a snit over all of this and I know it’s stupid but seriously why mess with what works? Not sure I will continue watching this Netflix original. I feel as though this will mess with continuity and really…not interested in that!
