After Work Chores

I found my Velcro and finished my phone case.  Well, almost finished because I think it needs a loop so that I can hook it to my belt loop.  It's a little too big to fit in my pocket.

Today I tried one of those homemade weed killer recipes.  Actually, I didn't follow a recipe because I was in a hurry when I came home from work and just grabbed a gallon of vinegar, poured in some salt, poked holes in the top and sprinkled the weeds between the sidewalk and the street.  Looking back on the real recipes, I forgot to add dish soap which helps keep the solution on the weeds and helps get through any oil and dirt.  Maybe it will work anyway.  I'll give you an update in a few days.

I wasn't expecting to have to kill weeds in February.  We usually have a freeze around this time but the temperature has been in the 70's and this weekend is supposed to be in the 80's.  That's just crazy.  The weeds are going to die of heat stroke and lack of water before they freeze.

The quail are doing well.  I got another 4 eggs in 3 days.  I should be getting twice as many but only 2 hens are laying.  I'm patient.  I'm sure they will lay sooner or later.

What you need is more rain (drown the weeds) and coincidentally I have plenty to send you :)

Haha, I think rain will awaken the giant amgry weeds just waiting below the sand!
