central vacuum system is in place, and I'm loving it. Joseph & I recently got it all hooked up, and it is truly a whole different experience now. Vacuuming has always been one of my least favorite chores, but dare I say I'm actually enjoying it? It's quiet, and I don't have to stop and lug the vacuum behind me every few feet, so it's quick. I never thought this would be something I'd actually ask for as a birthday present, but it's a wonderful thing!
There's another new soap on the curing rack. I've been doing some research on good flea and tick repelling essential oils. Once I'd finished my list, I gathered all the oils I had on hand, about a dozen, and put each under Guinness and McNib's noses. The ones they approved of are now in a dog shamppo bar. I've been pondering names, and have one that I like a lot. I'm going to run it by my best name critiquer first. If it's a go, I'll be sharing it. If not, I have another idea up my sleeve.
The birdnest is one I found last week, nestled in the crook of one of the pear trees. Wishing you a day of nice surprises!
