Live and let live

This isn't exactly a garage sale find, but just as good. My husband has been checking Craig's list for some time now, looking for a riding lawn mower for me to use at the studio. This little baby runs smooth, it needed a new blade, which we put on it. For $200. What a buy!
My husband is the best when it comes to shopping for the best deal.

Had to share this one with you......Tammy and her baby kitty.......well, guess what? Her boyfriend, Shawn, is smitten with this little one, too. And apparently, little Jinx feels the same way.
Sorry, Sheila. I know you wanted grandchildren, but I think this is as good as it is going to get.
She is a cutie!

Yesterday, I had to address the suspicious smell in the barn. I have a room that is all fabric rolls, and huge boxes of sock seconds. A couple of days ago, I noticed that it smelled kind of funky in there. It never has before.
So I took the 5 storage containers that I bought to transport rugs to the Larac festival, and I emptied the boxes of looper chains, one hand full at a time, and put them into plastic containers.
We found the source of the very dead mouse. Yuk.
We also found out that Tammy screams like a girl.

So then, of course, I was driven to repack every single box. And it was 88 degrees outside, and I was sweating buckets by the time I was done.

Ya' gotta love these wild colors, though..............colors this vibrant always cheer me up. And I must say I haven't been in the best of moods lately.
I am struggling still to live and let live.

And of course, they were all fine....there was just the one mouse. That's all it took.
But I guess it was worth doing, because now they are all in containers that won't absorb moisture, and mice can't get into them. Unless they chew plastic. They don't, do they?

Here is a warp I just put is all pastels, and I am going to make some more of the smaller bags.........for summer.
Playing is hard Jinx says. She runs for hours and hours, and then she crashes.
I feel pretty much like crashing right now.
I got a lot done today. But tomorrow I am playing hooky. Going kayaking on the Sacandaga.
I am still trying to put some balance in my life. Stay tuned, I just might figure this out.

That kittie is a total love and is going to be a source of fun for a long time to come. It shows in every photo and video of that sweet face. Poor little mouse didn't fare as well..
