Hi, can you find the Killdeer nest in the image below?

It was last weekend when I was with Kevin while feeding the cows that he asked me if I could see the Killdeer nest. As I was looking everywhere, Kevin just laughed. He said it’s out in plain site. I had to admit that I didn’t know what I was looking for- never seen a Killdeer nest before. Heck, I wasn’t sure what a Killdeer even looked like!

You might see the nest right off the dot. But when you are out in the open pasture the nest isn’t easy to see. This is down by the pond/cabin, Kevin marked the nest with two bigger rocks so he wouldn’t mow over them.

Hi, they say April showers bring May flowers. Right now I need weed control! Kevin uses Roundup. But with all of his chores, he doesn’t spray as much as I would like. It was Easter weekend, my dad was telling us of the homemade weed killer he tried and said worked. So this is what I am going to try in a selected area of our driveway. Our driveway is gravel and all those pesky weeds are growing up between the rocks.

The Recipe:
White Vinegar 1 gallon
Table Salt 2 Cups
Dishwashing Liquid A good squirt.
Hot Water I used half a gallon to dissolve the salt before mixing with vinegar.
Sprayer I bought a 1 1/2 gallon sprayer.

It is not recommended spraying this homemade weed killer on concrete (sidewalk or driveway) or where you do want plants to grow (in your garden).

As you see, I will need to give it one more application.

Have you tried this homemade weed killer recipe? How did it work for you?

Best Wishes,

Hi, I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend with family and friends! I was very thankful to spend the whole weekend with members of my family. It is weekend’s such as this that I cherish greatly. Saturday I had the great pleasure spending the morning at my grand daughters soccer game. This was a first for me. I was the grand parent! Totally enjoying the game.

This was a first in the respect, I had to keep quiet. For me this is not an easy task! I know nothing about soccer; I didn’t want to yell out in case I was misleading. So I kept quiet (like a grandma should) and took my pictures. Following the game there was an Easter egg hunt.

The community center asked that the eggs be recycled (give back) so they could be used next year. It was good to see everyone emptying the eggs and giving them back.

After the morning activities, we headed to Red Robin for an endless basket of fries………..

After playing the biggest part of the day, it was time to head home and begin Easter baking. More family time Sunday with Easter dinner.
