The fate of my new bird feeders

And here I thought I was being clever by getting a shepherd's hook for the feeders. There are two squirrels in the picture. As I type this, the total is up to three.

From storage room to guest room



It's still a little tight, but very do-able. Just ask my parents; they stayed in it this past week. And Jim's parents are coming down for Labor Day weekend, so we needed a guest room again. It was actually fun for me. I love organizing and getting rid of crud we don't need, and we had to do both to redo this room.  We left the bookcases up against the wall and used the space on the shelves to store empty boxes and such that we needed to keep. A couple of spring curtain rods and deep red panel-style drapes later, we have a nice backdrop for the room. And not only are the bed and futon usable, but Jim has full access to his musical equipment which he hooked up as we arranged things. Everybody wins.

Hey mom-
Aimee has a new website.  I've changed my link so that it should take you right there.  You should check it out :)

I took a drive to Chick-Fil-A on my way to bible study this morning, and noticed that the convicts were out cleaning up garbage off the sides of the road.  I have to say, their outfits here are almost comical.  I'm not making fun, it's just that they are huge black and white horizontally striped jumpsuits.  I've never seen prison outfits that actually have black and white stripes. Usually, they're orange or something.  It was almost like a cartoon.  Although it wasn't quite as funny when I was stopped at a light and one of them was just standing there staring at me, about 20 feet away.  There was a bit of nervous laughter at that point.

Bugs bug me
Aaaaand the termites swarmed again last night.  Right after I'd vacuumed the whole house.  I'm sure they did it just to spite me.
