Then Tll Now

Bill cut down the big Camphor tree stump!  The whole front yard smelled of Vicks Vaporub! 
The table runner is bound and finished! 
I made a batch of peppermint goat's milk soap. 
And some more lotion while I was brewing in the kitchen.
I wanted to bring some soap and lotion to Caleb and Cassandra in Fernandina Beach.  She had recent surgery and hasn't bounced back because of complications....with two little ones, there isn't much rest time.  I told her I was impaired, too, so between the two of us, there just might be one whole person to keep up with things! 
To make it interesting, there is a hurricane on the way!  This was the sunrise this morning...it is windy but beautiful for us right now. 
To the southeast, there are magnificent clouds gathering! 
Someone else is stocking up for stormy weather!
I am having fun with their baby Conure, Kai.  He is so curious and smart!
He pulls my french wire earrings right out of my ears and tosses them to the floor!  He thinks they do not belong and frees me from them!  Too cute!

  2. That was one big stump! My stuffy nose could sure use a whiff of that.

    Looks like we dodged the storm this time. Enjoy those wonderful ocean breezes.

  5. We used to have a conure and he was quite a character too. He was a good old bird. That is some tree! I'm going to have to show that to The Mister. Your soap saved the day today. Read all about it tomorrow. I hope that storm spares you. I do love a big storm now and again-but not too big.

 Remember the pretty spinning wheel music box my sister-in-law gifted me while on my NY trip?    I took it apart to clean and oil it-ev...
