Boot Bag

Whenever we go out of town dancing, I either have to pack my boots in my travel bag/suitcase, which takes up room, or carry them in the box and that can be cumbersome.  So I decided to make me a boot bag!  Yes, you can buy boot bags, but I wanted to make my own.  Greg suggested using the pant legs of old jeans as I have done for him to carry his fishing poles in using the pant legs.  This took me about a week as my first idea turned in to another idea, and then I basically went back to the first idea.  What took the longest was fraying.  I wanted to really have the worn look and with fraying (to make it look more even) you have to pull one string at a time to keep from snagging on what has already been frayed.  I added the ribbon to the outside of the pant leg just to make it more feminine.  I am going to play with more ideas to see what else I can come up with.

Got a Solution??

Greg saw this in the newspaper today.  We are always looking for solutions to this problem.

The pups have been giving the squirrels fits but they haven’t caught any yet.  Never say never !

I’m Back!!

We lost our internet for TWO weeks – I thought I was going to lose my mind.  What did I do before the internet??  Actually, I kinda liked not being “joined at the hip” to internet.  I still had access via my phone, but I don’t type as fast as I do on a “real” keyboard.  I don’t use my thumbs to type on the phone as I make more mistakes than a beginner typist!  I have to use a stylus to type but I can go pretty fast one handed!

So, the other day I was in the front yard looking at all the weeds that have come up with all this rain we have had (since April 16 – 13.4″!).  I happened to look at the middle of the Sego Palm that was in the front.  Remember this that I posted a while back?

It still looks kinda scary, but it is growing new “prawns”.

They look so delicate while unfurling and then get prickly after they have matured.  Got lots of weeding to do, lawn mowing and weed eating (once the ground dries up about a month from now!).  It’s good to be back!
