Meet Ronnie, the yellow jacket destroyer!
Here she is all suited up and ready to go!
First she sprayed some aerosol stuff
Then she used a puffer and dusted the nest and bees really well. Boy, were they angry!
It only took her a few minutes to do what she needed to. She told me to stay away from the patio for a couple of days.
And if that wasn't enough excitement, my dryer died! Fortunately, I had enough cash saved from house cleaning and working for Gail to buy the cheapest one at Lowes. My washer and dryer are over 20 years old and I knew they wouldn't last much longer. I just told Gail yesterday while cleaning her house that my washer wasn't far behind and low and behold, it croaked last night with a load of dog towels in it. It looks like there is mud in it and the agitator won't work. Since it's $80 just to have a guy come and look at it, I'll figure out a way to buy a new washer as well. Goodness knows with a house full of critters that I can't be without a washer and dryer!!
I'm glad I know how to handle money as well as I do. I've been out of work for 16 months and have still managed to pay for an expesive air conditioner repair last summer, a major car maintenance bill and new tires, go to a quilt show and have some fun, and now buy two new appliances. Of course, I had to take some money from my retirement funds for little Princess' surgery so I can't count that one.
I am a survivor and should be more proud of myself for what I continue to do without a permanent, full time position.
It is blistering hot here today and Alissa is with me. We are going to paint some concrete stepping stones - in the house of course. We're not going out for anything today!!
Have a great day everybody!
