I just got back from getting groceries. I love Snapple tea, but my grocery store doesn’t carry it, and I’ve inquired about it several times now.
So I go to the Walmart market (I won’t set foot in a super Walmart) and get Snapple tea and some other items I think might be cheaper there. Then I head a couple of blocks down to my grocery store to get things like ground turkey and other items that need to be refrigerated.
Not much on my patio is blooming. Just the morning glories, a few petunias and the sedum autumn joy. There might be a few pin cushion flowers out there.
It is kind of a sad time of year for gardeners. If you live in a climate like this one anyway. I focus on my indoor plants this time of year.
I could always get mums, but I think it’s just too hot for them. Later on I might get pansies just to have some color out there.
You won’t believe what I found in my bath tub the other day. A slug. A SLUG IN MY BATHTUB! Yukety-yuk!
I told the office manager and Nathan came down here and put something down the drain. I kept the door closed for some hours and then ran hot water for awhile because as you know Ivy is fascinated with the bath tub.
How on earth did a slug get in my tub? Had to be the drain. There are no windows or other places it could have come from I don’t think.
I can’t abide mice, snakes or slugs. I’m sure there are a few other nasty reptiles or insects on that list, but those are right there at the top.
When I lived in Texas, there were those cute little green lizards. I liked them though.
I also had Nathan secure the yellow cupboard where I’m keeping my boho craft supplies. Ivy is determined to get in there to check out all those beads. I can just see her getting the plastic containers open and hundreds if not thousands of beads scattering across the floor.
I don’t think she can get in there now, the little stinker.
I haven’t tried doing many crafts since Ivy came to live here, but she certainly wants in on the action. Actually next month Ivy will have lived here one year.
Right now she’s sleeping next to me on the table I keep my laptop on when I’m not using it, and Charlie is at my feet on the recliner.
Ivy likes to play this game where she puts a toy up on the coffee table or dining table or somewhere. Then she will sit and stare at it for a minute or two, then knock it down and start all over again.
I finished watching “The Fall” on Netflix and two evenings ago I began watching “Broadchurch.” Above is the cast.
When eleven year old Daniel Latimer is found dead on the beach of a small town known as Broadchurch detectives Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller must crack the case. As the mystery slowly unravels the town seems to fall apart at the roots forcing the once kind neighbors to turn on each other.
I’ve decided what I really like about British and Australian TV series and movies is that the actors don’t look perfect. Do you know what I mean? They’re rather ordinary looking and therefore more believable to me.
I was riveted by “The Fall.” Oddly enough I had never seen the actor Jamie Dornan before, who played the serial killing villain. But he was quite good, as was Gillian Anderson. It seems he is pretty famous and handsome to boot.
Apparently he was in “Fifty Shades Of Grey”, but I haven’t seen that. If you have Netflix and haven’t seen “The Fall” and you like crime dramas, I think you’d like this one. It is quite fascinating.
I am reading “The Good Neighbor” right now.
Sometimes the past just won’t stay buried.
When 14 year old Brittany vanishes from her bedroom one night, her parents are devastated, certain she has been taken.
They can’t bear to think about who has done this and what might be happening to their precious girl.
Even worse, the police seem to see them as suspects, implying that they may have had a part in their own daughter’s disappearance. Only their neighbor, Taylor, is a rock. She organizes search parties, feeds the volunteers, works night and day to help them find Brittany.
But as this affluent California community becomes focused on the hunt for the missing girl, it slowly becomes clear that her disappearance is linked to terrible secrets from the past.
Secrets that must be kept hidden at all costs….
