Repellant Success

I am hesitant to view last night's success at keeping the coons at bay as a permanent solution, but only found one place where they had been digging. We achieved this by a combination of ammonia which I placed in a small dish near the basil and by the husband mixing a spray of ghost pepper sauce and water which he sprayed on the pots and some rags placed near the pots they hsd previously disturbed. Quite nice this morning not to have to replant and clean up their mess. Time will reveal if they learn these areas are now hot spots abd stay away. Will reapply for a while.

Harvested toy choi this morning, all washed, dried and in the fridge plus what may be the last of the lettuce.  Could have pulled carrots, but will wait till I'm ready to use them. I wish I had thought to take a picture because the plants were lovely.

Anah plans to take her test for her driver's permit this afternoon. I expect her to pass easily. She had a friend sleep over last night and I enjoyed watching them (from inside) as they floated around the pool while I imagined their conversation.

Not much info on my brother. I have avoided calling him directly for a number of reasons, but have repeatedly failed to reach the nurse in charge. Today I am calling him and bypassing the nurse's station. Second hand info reveals nothing awful.

Have reached the heel flap on the ugly socks.

Started watching Extant on Amazon.

Will finish the last in the very long Ian Rutledge mystery series today. Must choose a new book for the trip.  May be Every Man Dies Alone by Hans Fallada, but no doubt I'll throw in a cheap mystery just because.

I have actually starting packing though the whole idea of a vacation is a bit surreal. I do know I will be glad to escape the heat here.

It does make for an interesting knit, never know whats coming next. Hand-dyed yarn, a first for me. Went to cast on and discovered I need to reup my sock yarn supply.

At this point I don't know how to knit anything other than hand-dyed for socks. They're so interesting and pretty.

Have you done Fair Isle? My favorite and are you on Ravelry? We could see each others work there. I am mysticmooma there I think.

Ah yes! We are friends - I'm eventual. I don't know how good I've been lately about uploading projects.

I can't even use two colors in one row very effectively; I was just thinking the other month that I need someone to teach me how to use multiple colors without messing the tension up. I often just cheat and duplicate stitch because it looks like a sloppy mess otherwise.

I haven't been on lately either, but do have some of my earlier things up.
