Ladybugs In The Garden (and a sale...)

I spent all day today hammering away at jewelry while catching up on episodes of (gasp) Bethenny Ever After.

All alone in my quiet little house.

The laundry is piled up and the dishwasher is full of clean dishes waiting to be put away and the floor is kinda sticky (probably more than kinda, but who wants to admit to that?) and my bed is not made.

But I've been to the gym and showered and there is food in the fridge and it is warm and sunny, so all is well.


The reason, though, is that there is a sale in the shop. A crazy sale that is keeping me busy.

CLICK HERE to check it out.

In other exciting news...we have aphids on our fruit trees and because I don't like to spray them with any type of chemical we resorted to paying money for ladybugs.

Because apparently lady bugs have been avoiding my yard. Must be all the testerone around here. But sweet ladybugs eat aphids which makes them happy and in turn makes me happy.

It's a win win situation...minus the fact that I paid $6.99 for a bug. Or bugs. 1500 bugs, to be exact.

Hope it works!
I'll keep you posted.

  1. Your ladybugs remind me that I just discovered a new book series called Ladybug Farm by Donna Ball. The books are about three middle-aged women who buy a run-down mansion on an old farm (former winery) in the Shenandoah Valley. There just happen to be a lot of ladybugs on the farm, thus its name. I have read two of the three books so far, and they would make a great summer read. I have the third book on hold at the library. You might like them!
