Hot and tired..............

This will be a short post...."yeah right"  you're saying.  Well, yesterday was Walmart and laundry and today was mowing, spraying deer repellent and watering everything as it has been HOT!  I got out there earlier in the day although the grass was still wet but it wasn't in the 90's yet so that's all that counted!
This deer repellent is not harmful to animals and uses taste and smell to deter them.  It's by the Havahart company who also makes those humane traps for "re-settling" animals in a better place when they become a nuisance in your yard or property.  I hope it works because I like that it is thoughtful of the environment and the animals.  It was also at Walmart and it was the cheapest of what they had.
Just finished supper and I fried hot dogs in butter and had a sandwich with the last of the backed beans and some chips.  Tomorrow I'm cooking cabbage burgers for supper.
Have you ever had hotdogs or bolgna fried in butter?  Yum!!!
This is what we did before grills were invented! LOL!  My mother used to make these.  I use my cast iron skillet. Cut them in half and fry both sides.
  I also made some cookies but forgot to take a picture.  It was a new recipe that Ikea evidently sells and/or makes.  Swedish Oat Crisps.   I haven't really tested them out thoroughly yet so I'll let you know.
I did knit a bit with my new needles and love them!  When I started out knitting socks, I started using  circulars and Magic Loop but then went to dpn's.  I'm liking the  Magic Loop method much better this time around as compared to when I had no idea what I was doing.  At least now I have a little idea! LOL!  This is another Regia Kristen Nicholas self-striping yarn.
I hope you are cool where you are!  Happy Trails!


  1. I love hotdogs but I've never tried them fried in butter. I have to give that a try. We had a problem with moles at the lake. So many people have put poison down, but we tried some repellent that we bought at Home Depot. That seemed to do the trick. I hate the thought of killing anything. Stay cool my friend.
    Blessings, Betsy

  2. Nothing better than a cast iron skillet for browning things! YUM!!! Enjoy your day. Stay cool! Hugs, Diane

  3. I hope you don't mind my answering you here, I seem to have lost your email address. It's about 30 minutes from our house to the lake. Close enough to be able to go back and forth easily. I would love to have the lake be like the one you described, without houses and lots of people, but I'm afraid there is nothing accessible close by us like that. The older I get the less I want to be that remote anymore. :-). I hope you have a lovely day today.

  4. The perfect way to cook hotdogs!!!
    That yarn is beautiful!!!!

  5. Yes I like hot dogs or brats cooked that way in the winter! I hope your deer stuff works for you! :)

  6. Take it easy, Sandra. I have never fried hot dogs before. I will have to try that one day as I usually just boil them.

  7. In the UK we usually grill or fry our hot dogs, but we usually have regular sausages and not hot dog sausages - they look lovely. As do your socks!
