Beautyful day today. Sunday so Norman cleans the house and I write the family letters. Then I worked on Norman’s family tree and he washed the truck. We went down to check on the garden and found that he had left the gate open but the lines we put up across the gate area seems to have kept the animals out so we were lucky and no plants were eaten. I bet that is the last time either of us forget the gate again. This morning we had a visitor on our front porch. I got out and took a picture to show you. The picture shows the Luna moth but you do have to look for him. I had to hold the Mac upside down to get him and could not get too close to him as I decided it was not worth taking a chance of falling just to get a better picture but you get the idea anyways. I think the Luna moth is the most beautiful moth there is and this is only the third one I have seen. Now he is gone, I will watch for him tonight.
We watered the new plants and tomorrow we will water again and mulch them all so we don’t have to water every day. The nice warm 80 degree weather is supposed to last all week so tomorrow we will work in the garden and then on Tuesday we need to go to Whitwell to check on the house and see if the lawn needs a little pick up. No word on anyone interested so we are not going to waste much time there but we can stop in Dunlap at the farm store and get some vegetable as my frozen one are almost all gone as are my canned ones and what ever they have will be better than Walmarts. Then on Wednesday we will go to Spencer to the dump. Everything we can’t compost or burn gets taken to the dump. Some things we can recycle for free and the rest we have to pay 11 cents a pound. We usually go to the dump once a month and it costs us right around one dollar and we use that day to do other errands in town, such as going to the post office, the store- they have the best meat! and the liquor store. Have a great day.
