If you are dealing with yellow jackets, this guy in this video, first digs out a nest.  Then he tests three traps, two of which you can buy.  The third is most effective short term and simple to make yourself.

I over did it yesterday.  Big time. So last night I was exhausted and in one of those moods where you don't want anyone to say a word.  I just wanted my bed.  It's not like I see many people anyway, which is probably good, when I get that tired.  I'm more likely to fire off. Ganji has ringworm.  He's the last cat I c

Week 32 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. Lots of appointments this week, but at least my pesky ovarian cyst is gone! Yay for that! Lots of small chores and the usual slog otherwise. Such is life. . Anyone else dreaming of a good rain? I am an Oregonian in sore need of a steady six-month drizzle. I'd even settl

Week 31 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. I think my planner lies a bit: it looks like I did very little this week, but one of those little tasks filled three full days. I started designing my family's 2019 calendar, and I didn't stop until they were nearly complete. Still a short bit of work before printing af

We had relief  from our strange extreme heat, although it was brief, yesterday, in the form of slight precipitation and clouds yesterday. I don't know if the mist was even measurable but sure felt nice! Today its back to the mid 80's, then more 90's. The young woman who asked for help with the orange mom and her five ki

[Part 3 in our series examining Linus Pauling’s relationship with the W.H. Freeman & Co. publishing house.] Linus Pauling’s landmark General Chemistry textbook hadn’t yet cooled from the press when he, along with publisher Bill Freeman and illustrator Roger Hayward, began planning for a younger sibli

I took Freezie, the little Frozen Foods trapped girl kitten, to whs to be fixed yesterday after procuring a spay neuter reservation. Our heat wave continues here.  It was 95 yesterday.  Will be hotter today.   I don't mind the heat so much but the garage is too hot to hold cats, that's for sure.  So I recuperat

I'm longing already for break days, even though I did really nothing except too many projects during my alleged break in July. What a week it's been.  First off last Monday it was picking up the orange mom and her five kittens, all six filthy, in Sweet Home, bathing them all in the bathroom sink, trying to kill their mas

My first seven reservations for spay neuter in a month are Monday and the cats who I had lined up to fill those seven reservations, may not be going.   Their people are to blame, not returning calls or texts when I've already even loaned out traps to a couple of them. Where are these people?   Beats me. Guess they don'

Week 30 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. Does anyone else get summertime blues? I am over this heat, blinded by the sun, and exhausted from going-seeing-doing. I need a good rain already! This week was mostly a recovery week from July's insanity. Not looking forward to August. Hurry up, fall! . Are mermaids st

Week 29 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. Our families both scheduled their reunions on the same day. We got up very early and stayed up very late, but we got to visit with so many loved ones. We are lucky to have and are so thankful for our huge families! (But we are never doing both on the same day again. Thi

Finished the upper flags tonight on my cross stitch piece. Only took a month to complete this section. Zero mistakes, although it's still far from perfect. The left flag is the colonial U.S. Flag, and the right flag is George Washington's personal flag. We purchased this kit at Mt. Vernon as our souvenir for our D.C trip ba

I'm off my break.  Officially I was off break yesterday and what a day! Someone called about a mom cat, left behind by drug infested neighbors, who had kittens.  This was up in Sweet Home.  She had the kittens in a dog crate and said she could get the mom in there too if I could come get them.  So she did, and I did.

Week 28 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. This was my quiet week for July, and I took advantage of it. I have been loving listening to audiobooks while I cross stitch. The time just flies! Lots of stitching progress made, but lots more to do. Such is life. . I brought out some simple #mizuhiki and some lovely #
