I rearranged my art room yesterday, swapping out the bookcase for the table. The cutting table now has both table ends set up with my large cutting board on top. It’s taking some getting used to, but it’s much nicer than before. I managed to get nine pocket tissue holders sewn for the Depot Gift Shop, and have a quillo put together to be sewn later today or tomorrow.
We have Depot Duty today so the tissue holders will go with us, along with a bag of selvage trims that I’ve been collecting for a friend who works there at the Depot.
We were in Bakersfield on Wednesday of this past week and stopped into the Orchard Supply Warehouse to see what they had for squirrel eradication/removal. We purchased a trap, brought it home and baited it with peanut butter on bread. No takers, but the bread dried up so we put in a fresh piece and loaded it up with birdseed on top of the chunky peanut butter. Still no takers… But the squirrels did stay away for a day or two after the appearance of the trap. I think they knew their time was limited… I hate to admit that we’ve begun watching their antics by the birdfeeder. Gads… if we keep them to keep us amused, we must have no life at all… Nah, we have lots of better things to do with our time–it’s just that they’re fun to watch, just like the birds or the bunny rabbit that almost fell head-first into the water dish the other day. Wildlife can be such fun!
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be grateful for your life and for what you have (and don’t have). Tell those you love that you love them — OFTEN. Life is precious and we have no guarantee that tomorrow will be available to us, so enjoy today.
