It was one pretty exciting morning around here yesterday, as the "Tooth Fairy" had made her appearance while we were all sound asleep. Aiden's first tooth must have been extremely valuable to her, as she had left the huge amount of $3.00 !!! Wow, I guess with inflation, and all on the rise since I was 7 years old, that must now be the going rate for a "tooth".
Once breakfast was over with, it was time to enjoy the beautiful day outside and try out Grandma's new wagon......
"Aiden was certainly putting his "all" into it, as Connor is just sitting back enjoying the ride."
"I am thinking Bandit is really more interested in all his toys the boys have collected and stowed at the bottom of the wagon, then all the apples they have also collected....."
After lunch everyone was washed up and packed up so we made our way down to Bluewater Park for a couple of hours before the "Riptail Snorters" had to be taken back to their own home.
"Fun was had on all the "fun" stuff to play on in the Park. Fun stuff that is there "thanks" to our local Rotary Club."
Paul, Aiden, Connor and I had a great afternoon at the park until it was time for them to leave for home around 2:00 p.m.. They went their way and I went back to my sleeping "Crabby Cabbie" and a house that was in much need of my attention.
I never did get around to the other 1/2 bushel of tomatoes, so hopefully they will keep until tomorrow, as it will not be happening anytime soon today either.
With all the fruit and veggies that have been on my countertops at any given time this Summer, there has also been some pesky little Fruit Flies along with them. My friend Elsie had just emailed me a solution for these "little" problems, just the other day.
This letter is from The Smoothie Handbook, and was in response to one of Elsie's relative's inquiries.
Ever regreted not cleaning up the kitchen one evening? By morning you're greeted by miniature flies swarming your kitchen. Well... I was there this past weekend. I needed to do something about it. I was taught growing up that the only way to kill off these annoying bugs was to starve them.
Looking pretty good for this morning at least.
Birthday wishes to be made and people to see in my day ahead, so I am off and running, once again, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
