Default August 23.....Friday

Hi Kids,
I am up early on this pretty day because, this is day 2 of the installation of new windows and a door. You have to give to get, but, the disruption is tough. They left yesterday at 7 pm,and, will be arriving shortly for a long day of drilling out these bad boys. Already, the new ones make such a difference over the dinosaur ones we had!

Tomorrow starts the march of my 3 kids birthdays...with Nikki in NC, it surely will be tough. I have been posting on FB, some of the new creatures the kids are seeing for the first time....this is the prettiest of them all so far....

Make it a good one......


Trip, with her book & tea!

Good morning everyone:

Trip: That moth looks like the Lady Ga Ga of the moth world. Enjoy the new windows. We replaced ours about seven years ago and it sure made a difference.

Well, it's day three of Sinus Infection 2013. I haven't slept more than two hours at a pop in the last three days and I can feel it. I did go to the doctor yesterday and got the good ole antibiotics. My white count was over 15,000 so he was a bit concerned. Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in today and I'll start feeling better. Betty doesn't like it when I'm sick. Even though I have a sinus infection, I have no problem breathing unlike when I have a cold, and can't breath, I whine like a four year old. When I'm sick like this I just shutdown and don't talk. It really bothers her when I'm quiet. She usually can't shut me up and believe me she's tried.

Our plans for a weekend at the lake have been canceled because of illness so we are just staying home and I'll just rest. That should be an easy task because I have no desire to do anything.

I hope everyone else does have a fun and exciting weekend.

Take care,

Good morning Mates

Just another warm sunny day in these parts. Since we just came back from Ct., we will do some major grocery shopping today.

Mike take care of yourself and get well soon.

Trip, now you have a reason and an excuse to travel to warmer spots during the New England winter.

Have a nice day folks.

Morning mates, a little slow starting this morning, too many phone interruptions!

I am happy to report that I am returning to my preferred school, with my great co-worker, so back-to-school time won't be so bad. Still, got to psych myself up for that, I am still in "lazy summer" mode!

Got a call from a complete stranger this morning, although not unexpected. A very old friend of mine from Montreal, now in Ontario, had let me know her "significant other" would be visiting relatives near us and wanted to meet us, so we are going yo meet him at some nearby Tim Horton's for coffee. Hopefully next time he visits, my friend will come with him!

That's not Nikki's finger.. phew...I could not figure out how to get the picture she sent of it, off my phone so I googled it..

Here is another bug, they had in the kitchen, a wolfe spider. All the babies scrurry off her back, and when the mom taps her foot, they all scurry back on. Nikki says the size of it, is about half of a dollar bill, leg to leg. UGH!
Mike, I love that lady ga ga referfence...lol


Trip, with her book & tea!

Default August 23 . . . Friday

Good morning. Yep, 100 plus in our area, too, but I still have to go out.

Moths I don't mind, spiders, I do! Feral cats have kept down the population of little green lizards. Now about barking dogs . . .

Some house work is on my to do list this morning. Soon I have to go to the DMV and get a driver's manual to brief me so I have ace the written test.

Mike, feel better soon. I get sinus infections, too. No fun.
