.... Bugs and Lilacs...

It's that time of the year again when all the creepy crawlies wake up and launch their attack on us non-suspecting North Carolinians... Up until last summer, we fought back with bug bombs and "weapons of bug-destruction" ... and got nowhere!! The Calvary arrived with one call to the Orkin man (angels playing harps are circling my head now). The Orkin man has been my light in a tunnel of darkness...He showed up and brought order to my chaos ... I'm sorry to say now that I am waiting anxiously for him to ride in on his white horse ( or white truck in these modern times) and save me from the fleas that have awoken and are attacking me and my poor innocent cats...and son!!
I thought that Orkin had wiped them out last year but they have returned again in vengeance. A pocket of them are located in my attic sewing room preventing me from getting to my sewing machine... You see, my son and I are "flea magnets". We can be sitting or walking and fleas find us and attack us...we are irresistible to them!! My husband and daughter, on the other hand, must not smell so good (to them) because they never get attacked...What I would give to be less fleas, that is!!! Anyway, yes... I am losing it... and this blog today may hold up as proof...I just really hate bugs and North Carolina is SO buggy...
Despite all this trauma, I do have things in progress that I work on downstairs and will soon have pictures to prove it!! Please stay tuned and check back... I can't wait to get them listed!! I also still have new "news" that I will tell you later... I don't want to jinx it!!
Take Care,

Tina ~~ You poor thing, hope your flea problem is well taken care of and you can get back to sewing.
