Still Here....

Haven't fallen off the face of the earth, as far as I can tell.

I've spent some time fighting with my computer and blogger.  Seem to have that situation on an even keel for the time being....

I've got the shed back upright  ~ which means that there will be a storm soon to blow it back over. 

Poor thing is getting a bit rumpled!

No weaving, or sewing, or crafting.

I've been doing a little painting, the outside of the house kind.  I should be out there right now. The weather is gorgeous. 

I had a rummage sale, got rid of loads.  Didn't make much money, but how would I when I priced everything a dollar or less? 

Working, working.  You know? I could get so much done if this thing called work didn't get in my way!

The other morning as I was getting ready for work, the son came home from his shift.  He was so dirty I had to take a picture.  Remember, this is at about 4:10 AM!!!

He is such a goofoff... It's hard to get a picture~  Thing is, I haven't been able to break him of his habit of coming all the way into the house with his work shoes on, and hanging on the door frames with his greasy dirty body.  I've decided to do a really good clean when he goes back to college.  It's hopeless otherwise!

My girls will be home soon.  The closest one that's within the state's borders, will be home this weekend.

The girly in New Mexico won't be home for another two weeks or so. 

It's their birthday today, and I can't wait to see them.  Too bad they both will only be around a couple days before they have to get to school :(

I'm a little bummed out.  Summer is almost over.  Winter is coming and there is so much I didn't get to do. At least the fun stuff.   It seemed this summer it was either cold and rainy, or hot and humid, or extremely buggy.  The conditions for getting projects done so I could go have fun just didn't happen much.  Just the last few days have been nice~  And here I am stuck at work for 10 1/2 hours getting too dang tired to do anything much when I get home.


We had a little excitement here the other night.  A high speed chase coming out of North Dakota crashed in the slough just a mile northeast of here.  Manhunt! Never did find the guy.  He stole another car (the fourth) just down the road from me, but blew the transmission on it a few miles down the road.

Shaking my head...

They woulda just had to let him sit it out overnight in the slough. 

The mosquitoes woulda taken care of him.


  1. I'm with you. I know it's August in the middle of the day, but these mornings I need my terry bathrobe.

    Are we lucky to have such messy boys?!!

    I thought of you when I read last weeks SF Chronicle, and the new businesses that cater to "burners" - the people who pay big bucks to go to Burning Man. The blowing sand is the issue so they showed a designer who came up with special goggles for blowing sand, made from bras. I swear they looked like your picture last year!

  2. I'm with you..... this "work" thing is overrated, I want to WEAVE!!!!!
