Things Are Starting To Change

Monday, November 07, 2011

Yep, things are slowly starting to change in many ways. DST is over. Fall is in full swing. The weather is changing. Things are slowly starting to happen with my MIL's estate. Some change is good.

The NWS didn't know if it would rain today but it did some. I did some yard work and started moving some of the brush we cut down from the trees weekend before last.

Have you noticed that when junky foods that contain too much white flour, salt, additives, sugar, HFCS, etc. fall from favor they start advertising them more on TV while touting that they are healthy for you with tag words like "whole grain". What a bunch of crap.

There was a big buck in the yard today. I wish he would stay put and not run off because it's safe here but the poor things are frantic looking for somewhere to hide.

We got a really crummy verbal offer on my MIL's house today from an investor who flips houses. $55,000 less than what it is worth. But it is our first offer and I find that sometimes things look up after this.

Hubby and I got a short walk when it was almost dark as soon as he got home from work. I miss DST!!

I worked on my check book tonight and got some bills ready to mail.

NWS is way off on our weather a lot of time, but just as accurate as the local TV stations. Our great weather man retired, now we don't know what we'll get until it's here.

I've noticed the ads on HFCS, too. People believe that stuff. I'll put my faith in Dr. Oz.

I miss DST, too. Winter isn't my favorite season, and it's coming. I like seeing things grow.

    Hubby hates DST - he will be yammering on about it for the next few weeks. You know, because this has NEVER happened before ... LOL.

In a way it is beneficial to me because I usually get my walks in before work and now I can leave earlier and have a little more time to myself before I leave. Although today, my daughter had school off so I opted to take her out to breakfast before I had to leave - definitely the better choice ;)

Have a great day !

We live close to an army base and because it is completely enclosed, the deer are trapped and abundant. You see the most impressive buck when driving by. I believe they sometimes have controlled hunts to control the population though.

It was so nice to get that extra hour of sleep today. I needed it.

It was a cloudy day but it was warm and windy.

My son was off work and went to a friend's house.

Hubby and I went for 2 walks and saw a lot of deer today. Baby came to see if we put out any food for her today. I had forgot to put it out until later.

Hubby and I put away all the Halloween decorations.

I sure hated it starting to get dark at 5 P.M. Ugh. The chinchillas were wondering what was up too so hubby and my son fed them early.

I worked in the high arctic for 3 months 10 yrs ago so believe me we have it not so bad (its night time up there until February now) Have to take the old lady to the hospital tomorrow ( diabetic eye tests) so I booked tomorrow off of work and Friday is a stat so its a shorter week for me.

A Spot Of Tea

Saturday, November 05, 2011

It was really foggy this morning. My son had to work the early shift today so I didn't get to sleep in. I made breakfast and lunch for all 3 of us when I first got up. Hubby fed Reek and gave the others a snack and then spot cleaned the pet cages. I did a few chores and my son left for work.

Hubby and I got ready to go to my MIL's. He had to wrestle the air compressor into the back seat of the Mustang and take some tools as we were going to winterize her house. We stopped to get some antifreeze and some gas and we were on our way.

Hubby had a challenging time and it was difficult to get the pipes cleared of water. He emptied the water heater, winterized the toilets and drains, drained the water softener, and drained the hoses to the washer. We were there all day and ran out of time and will have to do the dishwasher, ice maker, and finish the washer later on.

I visited with my MIL's best friend Ruth and she made me some tea. It was the best tea I've ever had and was from her son's shop, The Attic, in Green Bay Wisconsin. It was orange cinnamon spice tea. Orange spice tea is my favorite anyway but this was the best.

My MIL has the most beautiful roses and I cut some buds and brought them home.

We got Blocker out for a while. She was nervous. We gave her a big piece of fruit though and she loved it.

And it's so nice that your late MIL's neighbor is so hospitable.

    That was a long day, it takes us a while for the small RV. You must use gallons of antifreeze in it. Does that mean you can leave it with no heat on in the winter?.
We have to jump through hoops to leave the house for just a month in the winter but we never drain pipes or use antifreeze What a job that has to be!!!

I was raised on black hot tea. I thought I would love it for ever but. Taste buds have changed and I cannot drink it. I must try the Orange tea because i do like the lemon zinger tea. I do not take any sugar or honey or sweetener in tea. I tried Truvia and it will be a long time getting used to that too. Hot water with Lemon is now my go to tea.Black loose tea is good too, just hard to find.

Busy Friday

Friday, November 04, 2011

It was cold today. Ugh.

I have another humongous bruise on my ankle. My hubby will ask me how I got something so horrible but, of course, I don't remember and this will start the discussion of how someone can darn near smash their ankle off and not remember it. LOL. He gets bent out of shape about it and wants a detailed story complete with 8x10s. Hubby can tell you where every one of his scratches, bruises, scars come from. I think it's a male bragging thing. "I got this scar in the BIG ONE (WW2)." It doesn't matter that they weren't even born yet. LOL.

Actually it reminds me of my FIL who had no toenails on his big toes as he had to have them removed when he was in the service in Korea. He had severe ingrown toenails that are called cat faces. My son had them too. When my hubby and his brothers were little they asked my FIL how he lost his toes nails and he told them that the Germans shot them of in WW2. LOL.

Today my son was busy and we did 5 loads of laundry, cleaned the 6 pet cages, the bathroom, and vacuumed.

The lawyer called today and my husband's mentally ill brother has an "emergency" already after 2 days and needs $400. It's the weekend and I'm sure he needs cash for drugs. I had hoped these people would be smarter than this. The con has already started.

    You always get so much done in a day! You inspire me! I'm going to get a lot done today, by golly. My dad had only a partial pinkie finger on one hand...he had so many stories of how it happened...it was fun to hear what he would come up with next. Beautiful day! The sun is shining in my little corner of the world! Hope it is in yours as well! Enjoy! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon

    You're creative - come up with a reason for the bruises (I never recall what happened, either). I'm sure there's a busload of kids headed for the cliff that need you to save them

    I never remember where/how I got a bruise. Sometimes there's a faint memory of bumping/kicking/dropping something but no details. I get a lot of bruises, too. You did have a busy Friday----good for you. I got nothing done but some errands. Why do I always have errands?? It's gotten colder here, too. I need to bring in some of the porch furniture--maybe today! I can't believe the BIL. What a case! Once this is settled will you have to have anything to do with him?

    Oh my, another bruise Morticia. Please look after yourself.
Boy, that brother-in-law of yours takes the cake and it seems
that now he will start asking for more money if the lawyers
start giving it to him. He's not very nice, is he?

Glad you had another busy day with washing and cage cleaning.
You have a wonderful son and I hope you tell him from time to time.
I laughed about the ingrown toe nails. Ouch...
Hugs and have a great weekend.

    Ha, ha the bragging about scars reminded me of the movie "Jaws" when the guys are in the boat comparing scars. It must be a guy thing, LOL!

    Haha. My dh is always saying "back in 'Nam"... Even he's not even 30...

Sorry to hear about the problems with the brother in-law. These things take such an emotional and physical toll. They really drain you. I hope you can find a workable solution very soon!

    I hope your ankle is feeling better. I know how it is when I knock mine against something cause it smarts terribly; and like you said, nothing to mention about the bruise it leaves. Ouch!

Hope things work out for hubby and his brother too.

Take care! emoticon

    Why are lawyers so naive? They see this stuff daily. Is it denial or blinders?
