Goodwill Shopping & Jungle Chopping
Look at this very cool wooden clock
that someone made . . . not me,
but that I purchased at Goodwill for $3.99
but with my 20% senior discount $3.20
I took the clockworks out
Attached it to an old milk can
that I've had for years . . .
instant front porch table.
I also found four lovely farmhouse
Two Hens . . .
And Two Roosters for $2.99 for all four.
With my senior discount $2.40
I am thrilled with both purchases
and I had a good time shopping
the store . . . it was a treat
to find the time to go there :)
Before I show you my jungle chopping . . .
look at the size of my turnips.
To bad that they got attacked by bugs.
If any of you have an organic idea for
bug control on root vegetables,
I am all ears and would love to hear your advice.
This is the space between our blackberry
vines and our garden squash.
There was no way to walk in there
to start picking the berries.
So, I had to start chopping away at the vines
trying to not hurt my wonderful squash crop.
I felt like those people you see going
through the jungle with their big machetes.
I discovered these two beauties . . .
see my shoe!
These are huge and not finished growing:)
After I was done . . .
I decided that I deserved a well earned break.
Watermelon & a good book while sitting
under the apricot trees in the backyard.
I love the treats of summer . . .
Book reading is great in the winter
with a warm quilt and a cup of tea . . .
but give me the great outdoors . . .
it's the best!
Thanks for stopping by . . .
Here's wishing you all a very sweet day.
