The Friday Five Good Things

Five good things that happened this week.

1. I was out for the day, so Sunday dinner was up to Himself. He went to the store and bought a rotisserie chicken. Added a salad, potatoes, and veg. Was so nice not having to cook after being out all day.

2. Heard from an Aussie friend I hadn't heard from in a very long time.

3. Made the ornaments for the paper ornament exchange.

4. Ran some errands with Himself. Decided to check out paint chips as painting walls is the project planned for his Winter break. Got a quart of Benjamin Moore's Natura Ice Mist with eggshell finish to try out.

5. Ink found a little friend in the front porch who came in to feast on some birdseed that had spilled. The little rodent was hiding in a tote bucket where winter boots live. Himself carried the tote across the street to the woods to let the fur vermin go.  On our errand route we stopped at Ray's (the hardware store) to buy Fresh Cab Rodent Repellent. It's all natural. Smells like pine which rodents apparently hate, and is safe to have around children and pets.

How was your week?


  1. You are a very kind exterminator! Well, maybe more of a repellent, but that sounds funny..... :-/

    1. The fur vermin freak me out when they get in the house. And I freak out when Ink goes in hunting mode. So I'd prefer the mice just stay outside.

  2. Thank you for dropping by my blog earlier in the week. I apologize for not visiting sooner. Real life got in the way of computer time.

    I have a look around your blog and really like what I see. Bleubeard thinks Ink is fabulous, too.

    I like how you find these positive things that happen in your life. That's really the best way to look at life, in my opinion.

    I have a friend who planted her tomatoes in straw bales last year, but was too late trying to find them this year. My state caught fire for several weeks in the spring, so any hay or straw had to be used for cattle and horses. I still don't see bales in the fields this autumn, either, so they may be scarce next spring, too. Hope your husband got a bumper crop.

    1. Cherry tomatoes did very well. Leaf lettuce did well, too, but we were too stupid to know when to pick it. Beans didn't take. We got a couple of cukes. Some critter liked the peppers so much they ate the entire plant.
