A Couple of Awards and a Bunch of Great Bloggers

Ages ago Cinj did this for me.

Isn't she sweet. It took me forever to get to it. Now I have to admit five things I am addicted to.

1. Triscuits.
2. Gardening.
3. Blogging.
4. Reading Blogs.
5. My job.

I decided to use my comments to pick those to pass the award onto. There are so many blogs I love, but the commenting back and forth between us is how we become friends.

Racquel of Perennial Garden Lover
Foxymoron of This Country Life
and VP of Veg Plotting.

Then Tink did it again.

I am supposed to list six things that make me happy.

1. Monkeys.
2. Flowers.
3. Manly Man.
4. Critters.
5. Triscuits.
6. Gardening friends in normal life and bloggy land.

I pass this on to these blogs. Again, they were pulled from the comments.

Brenda, who won't put it up, but it is the thought that counts.

Thanks again to Cinj and Tink

Love all of your blogs and plenty more. Thanks for the comments and conversations. Please don't play if you don't want to. It is all for fun after all.

Aunt Debbi is a Homicidal Maniac

I just discovered a great way to vent my frustrations without going to jail - murdering fire ants. Nobody cares if you kill fire ants and like it. The ant colony in the compost pile was much larger than I expected. It spread all the way through the pile and into a few large containers of soil waiting for spring and new plants. A quick trip to the feed store and I have the stuff to annihilate the ants. Don't worry, I am staying organic. There will be no harmful chemicals. Nope, I bought diatomaceous earth (DE). I went outside and disturbed the pile. When the ants came out ready to kick my sorry butt, I spread DE all over them and watched them die. BWAHAHAHA. I feel so much better.
