A Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window...lots and lots of vegetables.

I am thinking...of how to get rid of the ants eating up my maters.

I am thankful for...the fruit of the earth.

I am remembering...the first slip I made on my own.

I am hoping...to get a lot of sewing done before the baby comes.

I am creating...a butter yellow crepe maternity skirt, almost done.

On my mind...what gender the baby is.

Noticing that...I still have a ton of stuff to do.

From the kitchen...dad's home made pizza.

One of my favorite things...pumpkin butter.

What I am reading...blogs.

Picture for thought I am sharing... 
First fruits of my garden!

Borax is good for repelling crawling insects. You could sprinkle it around the perimeter. I read something about natural bug repellants and can't remember it all. Whole cloves are also good, and for rodents, catnip or peppermint work.

Borax is a awesome idea, I will try that first!

I smiled when you said 'firsfruits' will you be making an offering? ;-)

Congrats on the new baby 'boy'. My son turned 4 on 6/29, my how time has passed!

lol Hmm, kind of looks like a offering huh? I think I already gave a lot of it to the ants, and rabbits though! hahaha

Thanks about the baby boy. I know Lela will turn 5 September 9, it's HARD to believe!
