Welcome Sue! Not sure if you'll learn anything here, but you might get a laugh or two!
Went out for supper with one of my peeps, bought groceries then came home!
I have 2 more BIG-ish projects, then I can build the bridge over the creek (spring run off),
then relax.....I think!
Kalen got hit by a truck riding his bike to work on Friday.
He's ok, the truck didn't stop at a stop sign.
I'm stealing this picture off the internet, so if it's wonky...........
He texted me right away.
I told him he'd be stiff the next day, but he works out lots, runs & rides his bike for hours, so felt all right.
I made him a card.
This will make him smile, cause he knows how far I'll walk for a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte!
Here's the inside.
Not sure if you can read it, but it's a definition of "LUCKY"!
He told me he volunteered at the Mustard Seed that night,
cause when you "almost bite it, I figure you owe the world something" unquote.
The guy wanted to not report it and just pay for the bike;
Kalen reported it....
the bike is worth thousands......
oh to be young & have money!!!
It's a touring or racing bike....
my mom said she can't get out of the hundreds of $ for a bike, so can't imagine!
Then so we don't have another 'card for no reason' fiasco like here,
I made Vanessa a card!
She'll get the 'latte' thing too!
Hers has the definition of 'unique'!
AND.....in case you're not paying attention, I've fired up the sewing machine!
I tried it on this card here;
and practiced some more on these 2!
Okay, don't look too close!
That's why they're going to the children!
Tomorrow night is dinner with the gf's.
Thursday I want to wrap the water lines....again!
I'm taking the heat trace to the electrician so he can put a plug in on it.
I need 100 feet of it!
A couple years ago I told Ray, "this is the last year I'm cleaning off the roof"!
This year I mean it!
Hopefully this will melt the snow under the sky light so there's no ice build up.....
That's what should happen in a perfect world.........I'll keep you posted.
On the weekend I sprayed the last of the chemical out of my containers over by the sewer pump out.
Relax people, it's for control of the weeds;
Shadow knows the 'P" word, and the cats don't like the smell, so all stay away.
My little rubber boots leaked, so I had sewer socks!
I dug the rest of the potatoes.
The whole time I'm digging I could smell cat $hit!
There was none in the gardens.......
I was walking in it!
I had sewer socks & cat $hit shoes!
About 4pm I came in,
shoved my clothes AND shoes in the washer & had a shower!
I tell ya....160 acres and they gotta go in or around the gardens & flower beds!
Had firepit Friday, and 5 o clock somewhere!
The strawberry bed is built, full of dirt, and covered til Spring!
I just have my gladiola left in the big flower bed,
but it hasn't froze hard yet and they're still blooming!
All the windows but one are washed on the outside!
2 are even done on the inside!
It has nothing to do with energy, this stuff has to get done!
Tonight I washed, bagged & hauled more tomatoes to the freezer.
I even bought some rubber gloves today,
cause I have a pile of peppers I gotta do something with!
Working on a couple more cards for challenges.
No, I don't have any more time, it just gets dark earlier!
Hope you're all well!
Talk to ya later!
Ta ta for now!
