Brrrr

 We did not go fishing today. It was bloody cold so we just couldn't get in the mood. The birthday boy tried on his new boots then set them aside for "good". He played around with his new cell phone then decided to heck with it, he was going to work after all. I bundled up and went with him.

Gosh, we were all over the place today. Down to the farm, across the bridge and just up the road. After all was said and done, we picked up five bags of moth balls, dropped a package off to Purolator, then shopped for birthday supper. OMG, I don't know how some folks can afford to eat beef. We only eat it when we find a good sale. Lately they are few and far between. We bought some nice cheese and crackers too. We had that and some chichi olives about 5PM. Then we decided we were not in the mood to bbq! 

Tomorrow is a new day. The weather looks much more promising.

(Moth balls are to "hopefully" keep the squirrels from chewing more holes in our basement windows)

    2. we find the beef and pork mix is the best for bbq burgers. It is often offered at less than $3 a pound at Food Basics. We try to eat with a focus on nutrition rather than some luxury cut

  4. We tried moth balls for chipmunks. All they did was bring the things back out of their burrows and pile them up. We are now living with the little monsters.
    Still dark and damp this morning. I am about to go out anyway as the birds are all out of provender.

    1. My house is totally built with wood (other than the foundation). The little monsters are chewing holes next to doors and windows to let themselves in! I put hundreds of moth balls around the foundation last evening. I"m sitting here a few minutes ago and what do I hear in the wall, a monster chewing inside the wall beside me. I sent M out to bail both live trap and rat traps. It's all out war now!
