Confessions of an Ewok Killer

EJ and I had a quiet morning browsing Facebook. (JJ was up all night so he slept until afternoon). Often we share with each other interesting or cute things we find while surfing the Internet. EJ shared a picture of a cute little dog…

Slugged!

The last couple days have been hot and humid–today was worse than yesterday. Storms have been predicted for almost every day this week so I didn’t water the gardens yesterday even though the plants looked thirsty because I didn’t want to water unnecessarily. However,…

Squirrels, Mosquitoes, and Stuff
