Yesterday I blew out 10 eggs which really hurt my ear drums. Maybe that is why I have a headache today. If I ever need to do this for a craft or something, I will buy an air compressor to be my lungs. I put them in a sundae cup and they are on display on my kitchen window shelf. I don't really like them there. They would look better on a table. I'll find a better way to display them. I just have to think about it some more.
One other thing I did over the weekend, I hung this fabric shower curtain over the sliding door in my bedroom. I have had this curtain in storage for years from when my rental house was furnished. It is short but that's ok because the dogs won't rub against it. I only need it for the Summer to help block the setting sun and to make it darker on the weekends when I get to sleep in. If it is dark the dogs won't wake me up at 5:30am on Saturday morning.
I put up more shade in the garden too. My jasmine shrub always gets sunburned and I am determined to avoid that this year. Right now I have half of a bed sheet shading the shrub but that is not good when it is windy like it is every other day here. I'll keep thinking and maybe I can come up with a solution from the things I have around here. Maybe I could weave a shade out of plastic shopping bags or sew together those net bags that oranges come in (except I only have one of those). I should have planted sunflowers like I did last year. They were great for shade. I thought they would re-seed themselves but no luck.
