Ranch Dressing, New Work & Groundhogs
I have been busy as a bee today. Since my little shadow was staying the night at her grandmother's house, I told my husband to take the computer keyboard with him to work so I wouldn't be tempted to surf the net all day (I have an addiction). Well, I guess I wasn't thinking becuase I was still able to surf the net sans typing. Next time he should take the mouse! I was able to complete to more Springtime welcome signs. One with a Miniature Horse and the other features a handsome Palomino Quarter Horse. I would rather be painting with oils on canvas but my signs bring home the bacon and the coffers are a bit low lately. My DH has off for Easter the next 5 days so I really hope to get a painting at least started.
I wanted to thank Angie of Free Rein Art for the super nice blog post about me yesterday. I was very flattered when she asked me over the weekend to send her some pictures of my signs and a bio. When you get the chance stop over to her new blog, Ranch Dressing, to learn a little more about me and also about decorating your house with a cowgirl flair!
Lastly, meet my new nemesis, Mr. Groundhog. He's taken up residence under my shed and is helping himself to the baby romaine lettuce growing in my garden. I am at my wits end with this guy. I have a humane trap set but he's not triggering it for some reason. I keep baitng it and setting it and testing it to see if it works but he eats the food bait and the trap doesn't close. I've tried a few other things, annoying him, ammonia soaked rags around my garden, pinwheels to spook him - nothing works. I think a rifle would work but that would be mean, wouldn't it?
Please let me know if you have any ideas!
