Visiter from the outside.....

The other afternoon, it was cool outside so we decided to "air out" the house. We opened windows and doors. Lee Laurie was cooking some sweet treats.....one reason I have put on a few unwanted pounds....and we had opened the french doors that leads out to the patio.


She was at the kitchen table when I heard a squill and "Stevie!" At that moment I knew something had came in from outside. I am thinking a wasp or bee. She hates anything that flies....even airplanes. Well, it was this pretty moth. All that Lee had seen at first was a shadow sweep aross her face and she knew it was something big. When we saw the moth I ran for the camera. Doesn't it look so pretty? After the photo shoot of the moth, I went and got a small insect net that Lee Laurie had gotten for the children. I used it to catch the moth and set it free outside. It wasn't hurt at all. Notice the beaded board that we put up. We just put in up over the paneling and we painted it. I do not enjoy painting beaded board. We would roll it and use a paint brush for the grooves. It looks great and we love it.....now.
Now on to the next project......

Okay so LL & I have that in common for real... and things that crawl on the wall as well. I hate such things... truly. Steve can attest to my squeel and run tactics. I'll be getting a broom for HIM to get the "thing".

You should put up pics of the beadboard... wainscotting!!

I couldn't kill the moth either. Beautiful thing isn't it. Flies or any insects our cat oscar will kill it. You should see him chase 'em down, funniest thing.

Thanks for coming to my rescue! I hate bugs! I'm glad that you didn't kill it though. Those little dollar tree nets fnally came to use!
