First off I would like to THANK YOU ALL for the wonderful and inspiring comments you left on the projects I did! Please know how much each and every comment was sooo appreciated. Thank you, Thank You!
What a wonderful weekend it's been! I was able to rest as well as get so many things done! I love weekends like that! I however did not make it out to take care of the lawn, but that will come this week!
You may have heard me talk about Buzzy from time to time. Buzzy is my cat. A big guy with lots of fur and personality. I was never raised around cats only dogs. Each day I learn more about this fascinating species and become amazed at how smart they are.
Buzzmaster spends his nights in the hall bathroom with the door shut. Why? I have no idea thinking back. It's just the way it has been. His litter box, food, bed and toys are in there and he always liked it. Lately, I have awoke to find him in bed with me. I know I have shut the door. Well, I found out that he can now reach up and turn the handle of the door and get out. OK, smart kitty me thinks! I solved that by taking some packing material and wedging it between the door and the frame. Case closed right? A couple of nights ago I took him to his room, shut the door, wedged the packing material between the door and went into the kitchen to turn off the lights. I heard Buzz trying to work his magic with the door knob and decided to watch. He released the knob from the door jam. OK...Then the little guy sticks his paws under the door and pulls the door to him causing the packing material to fall to the floor and allowing the door to open! I just had to laugh! Smart me thinks!
Last night I closed the door, added the packing material to the jam then tried something new. I had some old foam board and folded it several times and slipped it behind the door knob. The door knob would not budge. This morning I woke up to Buzzy on the bed next to me....I guess that means he's sleeping with me! LOL!
Other adventures on the farm this weekend....
Late this evening I decided to go check on my honey bees....they live behind my barn. They were doing great. In the evening it's so cool to see them all coming back into the hive after a busy day foraging for pollen and I imagine water to cool off the hive. I have been meaning to move their hive slowly a few yards every week until I get them back up towards the house so I can take better care of them. If you move the hive too fast, they hate that!
The area behind the barn never gets mowed so it's like going on an African Safari to get back there. Today's adventure ended up with me COVERED with hedge-parsley burrs or Torilis arvensis!!! I HATE THIS STUFF! Every one of my dogs gets into this and is covered and I have to break out the brush! The worst is Miss Sally! She has long hair. Her face will just be matted with this in a matter of minutes!
