I’ve started another. This is Illusion in Malbrigo Rios. It is not as purple as it looks in the image. You’ll see as I progress. I cast on for another vest, FOR ME, again , last night.
Did I tell you that Fireman found a pear tree on our property last week? Full of little pears. They are delicious. Seems apples that grow wild with no “spraying” get mothy and are best for the animals. These pears, although small, were so sweet and juicy. They had no worms in them at all. I gave most of them to the horses who were eager for a pear treat. I am contemplating planting another pear tree here. I love the idea of unsprayed fruit that we can enjoy.
Pear trees are not entirely new to us. Our old neighbors had some very old barely alive pear trees in their yard. The pears would fall into our yard, but were broken, eaten to some extent by the huge squirrel population in that area, and generally a great way to find wasps eating the pear flesh.
We have almost no squirrels up here. I think the abundance of hawks, fox and coyote, keep them at bay. So I think we could successfully have more pear trees. I was truly thrilled he found this tree.
Finally, another thing about living in this area. Seems EVERY church I pass has a COOKIE WALK in December. Yikes. Must stay away. Would LOVE to go to all of them. Well, maybe, I could go to one Cookie Walk…..YES, YEs, and then quickly give the boxes away. At least they do it in December here. Back in Illinois they did it in October. My sweet mom’s gone and she used to keep them in her freezer so I couldn’t get at them before 12/24. I’m shameless about eating cookies. Frozen, thawed, fresh, hot……I have no control. How about you?
