I drove up to Lilac cottage today planning to work but it is sooo hot, like 40C. The temperature inside the house was tolerable, I opened the windows to let the air in, the house has been closed up for over a year. I really didn't have a lot of time had to come to work early today, all week actually, blah..... So I thought I would have a little talk with the current residents, the lovely, delicate, long legged spiders that have been squatting in Lilac Cottage. I sternly informed them that I have bought the house and if they did not want to be squished or vacuumed up they better vamoose within the next couple of days. I really don't want to squish them or vacuum them, maybe I'll collect them and carry them across the road and let them go in the forest.
I read in some Feng Shui book or article that one should have something like a windsock hanging in the front yard to bring good fortune to the home. So the other day I went to the dollar store and for $1.25 I bought myself a windsock. I hung it in the cedar tree and think it looks quite nice, hopefully the good fortune will show up soon.
