Fly Strip

On the weekend a fly strip was hung on the back porch. The hope was that it would immobilize the wasps who bumble into the area, and might deliver strings that are truly unpleasant. So far it has caught about a half a dozen mosquitoes, no complaints there, and two house flies. Another plan must be devised for the wasps.

It has been an uneventful day, quiet and peaceful. The crochet blanket gained a few rows, some bills were paid, administrative type emails were sent, software was updated, floors were swept, meals were consumed, sunshine was soaked in…

    I love your quote for today.

  2. Bex, I liked it too, and to be honest, I find most of the people I choose to know well feel the same way about prosperity. I believe the planet has enough resources to provide every last child born with enough prosperity to live in modest comfort.

    Definitely an excellent quote. My family has always been one to share what they have. I constantly surprise DH, I think, when I want to help or give to the younger members of (his) the family who have less, but my family was always like that.

  4. Teri, glad you liked the quote, DH must really appreciate your warm hearted intentions.
