A Nice Friday

Friday, August 12, 2011

It was another beautiful day and I spent some of it outside just enjoying myself instead of working.

Hubby and I went for a walk when he got home from work and we sat by the pond in our swing. We have a lesser heron staying at the pond doing some fishing. We also sat in the swing by the house. The flower beds look great.

We also have a big hornet's nest hanging over the pond. My hubby loves those and saves them.

    I am happy to read you and DH sat together and enjoyed the company with less stress,its about time for both, in fact all of you.
    We do have hornets nests under the eaves. DS is allergic to bee sings so we always get rid of them just in case. HUGS, Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Wow I have never heard of saving a hornet's nest.. well maybe because I have never really seen one before. Sounds cool though.
    I'm glad you were able to start your weekend off right

    Glad that you had the chance to relax and enjoy your day. And it's so wonderful that you had the chance to sit on your swing. It brings back memories of when my dad built a swing for our front porch when I was growing up. emoticon emoticon

    Loves and saves the hornet's nests or the inhabitants?


    I'm pretty sure that you meant the nest. They are pretty cool. I've seen / held a few and the architecture is simply amazing.

    We have some big spiders on the outside of our building that have some magnificent webs built across some picture windows near the elevator. The windows do not open and are not near any condos, so no one really minds. It's fun to see how big the webs and the spiders get over the buggy summer months.

    Glad you enjoyed your Friday. I'm not fond of wasp nests. Especially if the wasp are still in there. emoticon

    Glad you had a good day. We were hot here, but worked outside for a couple hours anyway. Picked the green beans, and some weeks. No chiggers, thank God.

    I just made a run to the store for benadryl cream tonight for my friend who "discovered" an underground hornet's nest in her yard. Yowza. Hanging over the pond I guess would be better and less of a nuisance.

    I love their paper-making abilities. It is a natural marvel of engineering. Those and honey bees' honey combs.

    Glad you took some ME time!!!
