Kimber should be a good deterrent, she would love to play with the birdies.

I went to my favorite annual herb sale this morning and got a load of plants. In addition to the herbs, I bought five succulents. I've seen several interesting ways to display them. Now to pick one.

I am feeling much more rested after the codeine cough syrup last night knocked me out. I had a few coughing spells but nothing like the past nights. I am planning a resting day to try and get over this bronchitis as quickly and completely as possible.

One thing I really want to do today is plant my herb seedlings. I am so proud of them.

TB can pick up my dirt and pots as he needs some items to finish the fence - the contractor raised it, but left holes on the bottom that even Violet could get under if she wanted to! We have decided we are not going to get him back again, it is not worth the trouble. We are also not going to recommend him to anyone either!

Don't need any robins on my deck by my grill. Stupid birds. And the sad thing is, once they get a notion to build a nest somewhere, they keep trying to re-build it no matter how many times I knock it down.
Pac, when we moved in here, the front outside light above the door had it's cover hanging on two screws. We moved in the fall so noticed it but with all we wanted/needed to do inside it wasn't a priority. In the spring a robin started building a nest inside it. We found out that this was the "norm" in the complex. The lights were installed incorrectly and the covers didn't fit. The robins liked the warmth of the bulb and the covers were just the right size and distance from the light. Needless to say, we had to duck often coming in the door. As soon as we were able to we changed the fixture and no more nests.

So I understand your frustration.

We had that problem with Sparrows building nests right on the front door steps.One day I walked out forgot to duck and cover at least put a hat on.
That little sucker dropped a bomb on me.*SPLAT!*
We fixed that problem pronto. Must have been because I wasn't too happy.

My husband went to a garden center and bought the biggest fake plastic owl that he could find. Hung it up.
Problem solved. They don't like Owls. HOOOOT-HOOOOT...

You actually go to Costco to get things you NEED? We spent $400 the other day on frozen berries, pineapple, chicken wings and lactaid pills!

We can't get out of Costco for less than $400. Good thing the closest Costco is 45 minutes away.

I once got out of Costco with a receipt for less than $100. I have to say it that way, 'cause I bought a carton of cigarettes (they are at a separate cash) and the total of the two receipts was closer to $150.
