It was another 4 egg day yesterday. I still have some store eggs that I'm using up, as I had bought a few dozen awhile before they started laying. So, I had 14 chicken eggs now, so I put 12 in an egg carton and texted my neighbor. "come and get them". She came over to the chicken coop and got them from me and DH and I chatted with her quite awhile. She brought up all the cars/trucks turning around in our street on Saturday. We can't see if they just pull in our street and then back out into the main road to do their turn around (that's what most do), as our shop blocks that view, but the entrance to our street is right out front their house/front yard. Then we told her about the truck and boat trailer just pulling in right through our driveway loop. She was like omg, why is there all this traffic all of a sudden? DH told her he thinks that the boat launch down the road is so packed and no parking that they have to drive on past and a mile down the road is our street, the first street after the boat launch, so they pull in. We also had 3 or 4 cars pull in really fast, all at the same time, and drive down to the end on Saturday night at 9:30pm. They didn't stay down there, just turned around and left. We discussed maybe putting a sign at the entrance to our street "no river access" or something.
DH got a hold of the fence guy on Saturday, too. Told him he needs to get out here and get our fence and gates up. He's tired of people thinking they can just drive on to our property. He says he will be here next Monday, the 17th. He'd better be.
The birds are just going nuts over this bird bath, it's so fun to watch.
Since I picked up the flooring on Friday and it's had a couple/few days to acclimate I think Dh is going to install the rest of it today, or at least get started on it.
We both got a nap in yesterday, as well as the dogs. I made some tapioca pudding and that is the last of the box and I can't find anymore in the stores now. Been looking awhile as I knew I was down to the last of it. Then I brushed long haired dog as he needed a good brushing. Got his shaggy feets all trimmed up, haha. And gave both dogs their flea/tick treatment.
Has anyone ever made vanilla extract? I think I'm going to try it for my neighbor Christmas gifts this year. DD got a cricut machine so she can make me some bottle labels. I'm going to order the vanilla beans and bottles today and pick up some vodka when I go see my mom on Wednesday.
