Instead of decorating the yard, maybe I should clean my house? The neighbors are starting to look at us funny. I blame my husband somehow...
Sure - he's all cute during the day until he stops your clock to trick you into feeding him after midnight. THEN look what happens. Sigh....
Which reminds me...I haven't watched Gremlins yet this holiday season. Isn't that a Christmas staple? I wonder if its on Netflix...
We probably shouldn't get into how I feel about motorcycles and my phobia about how the riders of such turn into puddles of goo on the road. Umm...ok...anyway. I came home one day to find Skelly sititng on the bike of a friend of my husband's and asking my husband if he could come on their next road trip. I just rolled my eyes. I don't get boys and their toys. I banned Skelly from pedicures for a week after that maneuver.
Funny. I took his photo and them left him there for a couple of hours. I forgot to tell my husband what I was doing and he just about jumped out of his skin. If we end up getting divorced over all the poses I put Skelly in, I do wonder what reason we can use for the paperwork....
I was very excited to harvest my garden this fall after sampling a few baby carrots, some baby potatoes, peas and green beans. Little did I know, my plan had been thwarted by not one, but two forces of evil. All my carrots had been eaten by a mouse or mice who burrowed under the ground and ate them…leaving nothing but a thin outside shell behind.
The potatoes were infected with slugs! I had no idea that I even had slugs. I hate slugs. Why, why, whyyyyyyyyyyy? Sigh.
You might remember me posting this tree last year. Every fall I walk to it during my lunch hour to see if its turning red yet. It's a perfect climbing tree and the leaves are so huge. Anyway without going on and on...here is the tree this year
I spent about 40 minutes walking through my neighborhood this afternoon. Just me. :) we lived near a new construction neighborhood and it was fun to watch all the activity going along. I discovered 4 new show homes in the area and made a mental note to visit them on our next free weekend. I have no interest in moving but like to wander the floor plans and get decorating ideas.
Of course by the time I was done my walk I had about 30 questions related to home building. Lol sometimes I feel like a 5 year old. Why? How come? Can they? Lol I need either an expert or a know-it-all to walk with me to answer these questions as they occur to me.
We don't have a lot of time in the mornings to make lunches and we are never quite organized enough to make lunches the night before. As an alternative, we've come up with some shortcuts...
This bin sits in our pantry and is filled with school safe (no nuts) snacks.
This bin sits in our fridge and holds all sorts of things depending on the week. In this picture we have jello, yogurt, sausage, cheese, apples and plums.
This is the last bin. It also sits in the pantry and holds fruit, fruit sauce and pudding.
