for the wonderful giveaway honoring her 100th post. Her sweet grandson Jayden picked my name from the pool (literally!!)
Thank You so much Eileen..I am honored!!
It is just beautiful here in Southern Indiana. The humidity finally left us and the temps are down to being tolerable. There is a great breeze blowing as well. I spent yesterday (which was nice also) out weeding in the garden and flower beds. I will try to post a picture again very soon, of our garden..It is just gorgeous!! Our corn is head (mine) tall and is tassling..Now, if we can just keep those deer out!! They've been eating everything in our neighbors garden..it's just a matter of time before they come visiting min!! Pray that they stay away! Any suggestions on keeping them away? I'd love to hear :)
Have a Wonderful Monday!! Jerelene

Hi Jerelene,
This sounds like fun. I will post on it tomorrow. In the meantime you most go to my blog where you will find your name mentioned again!

Eileen said...

Great post! This was fun. I love reading about the things that other people favor!
And now I've learned a little more about you. Thanks!
I'll post mine now!
Love, Eileen
P.S. ~ Thanks for the 'thank you'!!

Eileen said...

I have one for you too, Jerelene!

Doing the favorite list was fun, but boy are people going to know a lot about us!
('Hope everyone still likes me!)

Jerelene....Those deer love that corn. If they want it, they will get it....so plant enough for the deer and for you! Another solution would be to have deer for supper....but I don't even like to think about that idea. Some people say that you can put hair (from the barber shop, beauty shop) around the perimeter. I haven't heard if it actually works....so that's just a 'she said/he said' thing. If you haven't tried it, you could give it a try.

oh my gosh! you are my first award giver! hehehe. I don't know if I can come up with 20 things about myself...I will try though! Put a scarecrow out in the garden that is wired and moves with any movement and also has a recording in it to scream when movement approaches....I just came up with this...hehehehe good luck!

Linda Higgins said...

oh and spotlights come on, you know the kind of lights that detect movement....lol you won't get much sleep...but you might enjoy the rewards of your garden!
