In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

PLEASE HELP ME TODAY...NOW!
See these dogs....you know I love them. But here's the thing....They have become obsessed with marking their territory IN OUR HOUSE. I noticed it about three weeks ago. I saw a stained spot on a vinyl footstool I bought at a garage sale last summer. I cleaned it up. And wiped up the floor. I did this for several days. Then I noticed a wet spot on the leg of a pie safe. I then became obsessed looking for wet spots. A few days ago I cleaned off the footstool one more time and I had told my Shug something was stinking......yup...I scooted that footstool over a bit. OMG! I heaved the footstool out the door. The padding underneath was soaked. Yesterday I was on the phone with a friend. I just let the dogs in from being outside and Winston (the welsh terrier) went over to a sack on the floor and peed on it right in front of me. I YELLED! Then I picked up the sack (it was plastic) and under it, a puddle. Then this morning as I'm watching TV, and enjoying a bit of crocheting, Dixie walked over and dribbled on a piece of furniture. Then I followed him into the hallway as he was sniffing a basket. A basket full of yarn! Yup, it was wet on the bottom. You get the idea.
I don't know what to do. I am at my wits end and I am not going to have this in my new house. My Shug has suggested I take them back to the humane society. I can't bear it. I also cannot keep them if they are going to continue. I need help NOW. TODAY. Otherwise, I know, they are gone. Do you have any idea on what I can do to get this stopped? (kind of a bummer considering my last post....sigh....)
I'm 59. A wife, a beekeeper, a gardener, and a crafter. I like to read; novels and old cookbooks with history in them are my favorites. I've been married for 21 years to a loving, hard-working man, who makes me laugh. We have a little dog that was found dumped in a park, and given to us. He is a boy, but has a girl name. Sorry Dixie. (could be uni-sex I suppose)
We have decided to take a journey together and build a new home on some land we purchased a few years ago. We are building the home ourselves. In 2016 we moved to the main level of our new home. I've created "The House on Hilltop Farm" blog, so I can record the house building journey. The Bee Lady from Hilltop Farm is about everything else going on in my life.
Nice to meet you.
So, I showed my niece my new (old) camper and she said, "I love the name coral belle. Coral reminds me of the ocean and the color of the camper reminds me of the color of the water in the ocean." (Out of the mouths of babes!)
