Too bad I don't have 2-3 more pairs of hands ... I could really go to town on my quilting. Ha!
I was also able to get some more hexies basted ... I still have quite a ways to go on them, but I'll have plenty of time to work on my hexies on our upcoming trip.
Speaking of our upcoming trip, we're on the countdown - 16 days and counting. So far, the long range forecasts for Hilton Head are showing lower than normal temperatures and increased chances for rain, we really don't care. DH always says that a rainy day at the beach is still better than a nice day at home. Ha! And seriously, after the summer we've had, it'll be nice to just get away to our Happy Place.
The rain we had on Saturday brought in a cool front ... the daily highs have been in the 70s and will continue to be in that range for several more days. It was in the mid 50s this morning when Lois and I set out on our walk. It feels like fall, so it seemed only fitting that I make a big pot of soup yesterday afternoon.
(Forgive the glare from the vent hood lights.)
DH and our neighbor John (Lois' husband) had been chatting about trapping and relocating those pesky raccoons who lounged on our deck a week or so ago and leveled our green beans. Their discussion morphed into determination after we discovered evidence of a major raccoon party on our deck. There were a LOT of muddy little paw prints all over our deck and up and down the steps to the deck. DH had forgotten to put the grill cover back on the grill Friday evening ... there was enough contrast to really see the evidence they left behind.
After we saw that Saturday morning, DH drove straightaway to Rural King and purchased a raccoon trap. I'm not convinced that they'll be successful in their efforts ... the bait had been taken, the trap had been triggered but there was no raccoon in the trap. <sigh> We'll see if they can outsmart those raccoons. I'm not holding my breath. Ha!
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that will bring you joy!
