Busy Busy Busy!!
>I've got 22lbs worth of wool fleeces heading my way in the mail (Targhee merino, fine merino, and border leicester). I still have 25lbs here I haven't washed yet..........I need a bigger tub and a new washing machine!
>my sewing machine gave up the ghost and I had to steal Katie's. I'll miss it. Eric gave it to me for our anniversary 10 years ago.
>Alex has raked the entire property. He did not do this because he's a nice young man. He is a nice young man and I love him dearly but he's managed to lose a set of gym clothes ($20) and a pair of glasses ($60) all within the same week. Since he's broke he had to work off the $80 ....I pay for the 1st set he pays for the 2nd set. Fair enough.
>Eric is reading newspapers that are over 100 years old. You wouldn't believe some of the stuff in those!
>Katie is still making mini things with clay and is getting taller. I need to put a brick on her head so she stays little.
>The cats are driving me nuts. Cedar was in the living room the other night after we went to bed making his "talking" noises. I got up to see if he wanted out. Nope. He was talking to his stuffed animal toy. Cripes!
>George is hiding from the rest of us.
> The tufted tit mouse birds are swarming the house and making all kinds of noise. I can almost hear what they're saying "fill the damned bird feeders!"
> the new neighbors across the street have tacked up NO TRESPASSING signs all along their property every 10 to 12 feet. They don't understand the unspoken etiquette here on the mountain (if you trespass you may be mistaken for a deer and shot) that we don't traipse around on other peoples property. They're from the city........I don't know what the rules are in the city never having lived in one.
That's about it . It's homework time and I'm scheduled to be the Homework Police tonight.
