    The house came with the walls like that. Its a popular finish around here. It does look nice. :) But, the walls ate getting cracks, and it's almost impossible to fix the cracks without making the repair look more obvious. :( So we live with the cracks. :confused:

    Only the real Dr. Pepper here. No diet, no aftertaste, no migraine ;)

    I agree on the cabinet and there is room for another next to it!

    Taiwanese friends gave us a "Korean melon" this summer. I don't think it was quite ripe when we ate it (saved seeds as we were instructed!) but its flavor is kinda cucumber/honeydew. Not sure if they will grow better than the cantaloupe did, we will see. Did get one cantaloupe about 1.5x the size of a softball and 2 smaller ones that got ripe. Another small one was too green when the plant succumbed to some blight/mildew (got the squash as well). It was nicely orange inside but no flavor. The chickens enjoyed it.

    glad the last batch of mozzarella turned out good. I've learned that a big part of the challenge of cheese making is figuring out why the batches don't turn out all the same when you do every step exactly like the time before. enough to drive you nuts. hope your world is good.

    We drove to Dallas today, to celebrate our SlL's birthday.

    Last Winter, they lost the second, of two Springer Spaniels, who had been with them for 15 years. They waited a while but then decided to buy another Springer Spaniel puppy.

    Missy is now 7 months old, and a pure joy to be around. :love. She is a beautiful dog, so I had to take some photos.

    Here, she is playing with her favorite toy . . . a stuffed duck. Very appropriate, considering Springer Spaniels are a "Bird Dog". :lol:

    DH put the sprinkler out, to water the grass. It was so cute. The Pekins gathered 'round, to enjoy the water.

    We were watching from the window. It was SO cute! They were letting the spray go in their mouth. :lol: So, I ran to get my phone & don't ya know! They were almost finished with the fun, and then they left. :th

    They sure love their water. I hqve noticed the khakis enjoy it much more than the rouens, but they all can't get enough of billing in the puddles....:).....do the geese get excited with it too?

    They didn't seem interested in the sprinkler. But, they sure do love the pools! :celebrate

    Perhaps it is beneath their dignity to run through the sprinklers.
