Mani/Pedi Supply organizing

 Remember this old travel cased that I found at an Estate sale? Well, I found a great use for it.
 I keep all my manicure/pedicure supplies in it.
And while taking the above photos, I couldn't resist taking one of Rascal. He's so photogenic!

Dewberry hunting!

 Brian, his friend and I went hunting for dewberries. Actually, I was hunting for dewberries, they were just exploring. We had just had a line of thunderstorms with a smattering of hail move through followed by a cool north wind and clear skies. It was a gorgeous evening to be outside. Then we realized we weren't alone! We were being followed.
 Not by one, but by two cats! Rascal and Samson were tagging along.
 The dogs, Honey and Lexi were not happy about being locked in the yard.

 Rascal climbed tree after tree!

 Here he is actually panting!
 I had almost as many photos as I did dewberries. This wasn't gonna make a cobbler!
 So I hopped in my trailblazer and drove a few backroads near my house. I hit the berry jackpot and picked 6 cups or enough for 3 cobblers!
I also had not taken my camera! All photos,except the dewberries in the bowl. were taken on my HTC Thunderbolt phone.

New Bat house

Still behind. We actually put up this new bat house over spring break (mid-March).
The Monday that I returned to school was a VERY windy day, and the original bat house blew down. Mr. CC managed to get it standing back up temorarily. The next weekend, we bought and concreted a new post in the ground.
The following weekend, we waited until after dark, hoping the bats had all exited and then took the old house off the original post and re-mounted it on the new post. I won't go into all the little set backs, but it took us about 3 hours. It also took a few days for all of the bats to return to the house. Hopefully, some will decide to move into the new house before the babies start being born, and I have to spend my evenings putting fallen newborns back into the house.

Where to start?

Where to start? I guess there is no real need to say that I have been busy! Most of my time after school has been spent outside working in my yard. My flowerbeds are FULL of weeds, so I have been weeding and mulching. I have also planted most of my veggie garden. I got a late start there. Hopefully, not too late!

 Computer time was spent editing photos for a group of youngsters that received their First Holy Communion. After having them printed, I had to sort and package them for mailing. Thankfully, Mr. CC made the trip to the post office for me. I will be taking photos for the Holy Confirmation group in a few weeks.
I have also managed a little bit of crocheting. I am working on an afghan now.
The chickens were thrilled with a little free-ranging time before I planted the garden! Chickens and seedlings don't mix!
