Where do socks go and selfies in the sunshine

 Five socks, I pretty sure they were having problems with their other half's and separated but where are they, believe you I have looked everywhere any ideas where they could be.  

 Spring cleaning don't you love it, washing curtains it looks like the window needs a wash too.



 The selfies are the cats not liking get their pictures being taken, I was just having fun with them.
 Talk about ignoring me.

 Do go away I'm sleeping in the sun, what I do best.
 Leeroy is shaking her head that would be a no no no so I will leave them alone.

 Washing on the line not seen that in a while.

 Look what they do when I leave them alone, it's a bit blurry but they are dreaming you can just tell.
 My idea is to build a elf house out of this tree stump, I saw them on a blog and they are so sweet so i will have a go.
 They path is growing.
 And the tiles are disappearing slowly, I've broken one hammer, the sledge hammer is still missing but I can't swing it it's just too heavy .
 This my toilet roll storage.
You can see why building the floor up would be better, in heavy rain it can flood.
The kitchen and toilet are two bricks higher so they would be all the same level.
The next step is moving the cupboards, washing machine and all the bits and pieces do you think I will find the socks you never know.

  2. That's a big job. We took tiles like that up by jamming a flat shovel edge under them. They popped up quite readily. It was easier than hammering them for us.
    Love the kitties.
    I had a washing machine that ATE socks- When we got rid of it there were a LOT of socks around the outside of the drum. xo Diana

  3. Your garden path is coming along beautifully.
    One of our cats loves having his photo taken. The other is like me - camera phobic.
    I learned the other day that the French call selfies 'braggies' which makes sense.
    As always, I love your garden.

  4. Looks like you are making good progress on your demolition, Merle. Good idea to use the bits on the path, too! I think that is the age-old question - where are the missing socks? I think my washing machine swallows mine and they end up in the septic tank.....Once I had a whole basket of unmatched socks when the kids were young and used them to stuff a flat bean bag chair. The 'kids' like to bring that story up when we are meeting new people.....they always look at me strange and the kids laugh and laugh. Hey, I don't like to waste a good unmatched sock. Your felines look blissfully happy in the spring sunshine. Probably dreaming of mouse pie.....xo Karen

    1. That's a great idea but I only have 5 I would throw them out but the brown ones are my favourite socks, they are a wool/cotton mixture very warm and nice to wear.

  5. Ha Ha Merle your'e so funny. I'm sure the socks will turn up when you move the washing machine. I love Spring cleaning too.My windows are a lot dirtier than yours. We get cement dust sticking to them from the works a couple of kls away. The steamer will come out when the weather improves. Your furry babes look so peaceful

    1. Does that mean you are breathing cement dust, that's not good since removing the tiles I've done a lot sneezing.

  7. I believe it's called sock warp; there are billions floating in it.

    1. When the ears go back I usually go away, slow to anger but quick to react.

  9. that path is coming along nicely but what a big job!! You will have big arm muscles when finished , have you tried a stiff edged shovel, like a snow shovel, oh you won't have a snow shovel will you, well I wish I could send you one, they have a straight edge and most are very study, to chip at ice, we took tiles off our old kitchen with one, not sure if it would work on your tiles though, if I was closer I would come help, lol, lol, the cats might be dreaming about where they hid those socks, they look guilty to me!!!! You are welcoming spring and Autumn is upon us, the clothes on the line will smell so good, always smell so fresh when brought in don't they, I can't wait till you finish the elf house, that stump is a beauty!

    1. We do have a shovel like that but it doesn't have a handle same as the small sledge hammer now, I broke it but I found one with a fibreglass handle or maybe very hard plastic but it very good.
      When we had dogs they would bury clothes.
      They would pull them off the clothesline drag them around in the mud then bury them that's why there is a fence around my washing line.

  10. I've never lost a sock in my life, so I can't offer any ideas where yours may have got to, but it's possible they may be under the washing machine, you'll find out when you move it.
    Your garden is looking lovely, I'm looking forward to photos of the elf house in construction and finished.
    Spring cleaning? I'll wait until much closer to summer, when my heavy curtains will dry properly the same day they are washed. Then I'll get my big feather quilt out in the sunshine and fresh air too.
    Love the dreaming cats.

    1. I know what you mean, nothing worse than wet washing hanging around.
      Never lost a sock you are the only one I know to make that claim, my daughters partner always buys black socks so it doesn't matter if one goes missing, i think it's a good idea

    2. Like River, I have never lost a sock. And having said so, will probably start next wash...

  11. Hello Merle...
    Loved seeing all your photos.

    Thanks so much for your comment on my blog. I didn't know the servants were buried in the tombs of the rich aristocracy. Wasn't that horrible? Hope they weren't buried alive. Susan

    1. I'm not a 100% sure about the servants being buried with the kings but have read that in reference books about that time but it was a different world then, I like our time better even with all the problems.

  12. Yeah socks. I just came up 2 short, also. It beats me. I think they may be hatching a plan....... they gather and gather and some day in the future they will take over the world and we will be their slaves.

  13. How funny that all the socks are missing, Merle. I've never had that many missing at one time. That toilet paper storage is ideal for your bathroom. Oh, I wish you would build an elf house out of the tree stump. That would be delightful. I just saw dessert tiers carved out of tree stumps too. A lot of clever ideas out there. It always makes me smile when I see fresh laundry out to dry. My mother-in-law used to do this, and she had 10 kids!

    Have a good Friday, Merle, and it was nice to hear that you remembered the song "Downtown."

    love,

  14. Socks are such mysterious creatures.

    I love the pictures: so warm and inviting. There's always something to do in a house, isn't there?!
