On another front, the Paxton clan is now at war with the tiny red ants. Yup, I am. They come up between the back of the sink and the wall. Not a pretty sight. They only show up on hot days. Now, that really sucks because we will be gone for a few days soon and it is supposed to be really hot those few days. Hmm, what to do. Well I have a few suggestions I am going to try both from friends. I have sprayed some raid and I have ant traps on each side of the kitchen sink at the back and under the sink. Fortunately, I don't think Mom would try to eat them or anything. She doesn't go near the sink without me. I will also try the splenda and the baking soda/confectioner's sugar mix too. Anything to get rid of these annoying pests. I was dismayed when I saw them this morning. Ugh, was my first thought, and there were a lot of the tiny suckers. What was there, is now gone and I hope no more show up. I don't need to come home and have to fumigate the house, that would really suck. Taken over by tiny red ants. Makes my skin crawl just thinking about it. I hope to have a good handle on this now. Anymore suggestions? Just let me know. I will try them all if necessary.
The left arm is a bit sore today. Not really sure why except it is hot out today and humid and I tend to ache more during that weather. My head isn't too bad yet, but I have a feeling it will get worse as the day goes on.
I want to go to the used bookstore today. I need something new to read. I also have some laundry I have to do so I can pack when we are ready to go. I plan to do some reading while we are gone. I am bringing books for Mom to read too. She loves reading and I have some great children's books for her. I will bring her fiddling toys with us too. I also am hoping I remember to pack the camera. I have been a bit forgetful (even with a list) on these type details the last few times we went on vacation. Not a good thing if one wants to take pictures. Speaking of pictures, I will be doing that next week of the painted violins. I hope to have a few of them posted for the give away. There are about 20 or so of them.
I hope you are having a good day and that it isn't too hot for you either. Stay cool!!!!!!!!
