As I don't foresee much happening i will blog now.
It has been raining for a couple of hours and doesn't look like it is going to quit.So when I finish this I will get my nap.
I had hoped they would be here today to work on yard but it won't be til Wed. Bill has finally lost his patience. He let the boss man know he wasn't happy.
i am now having trouble with my computer locking up. GRRRRRRR. I have done all I know to do so I will get the computer guy out and say fix it. He can deal with the aggravation. makes it hard to play scrabble when i have to constantly refresh page.
I finally got my sketch ready for pen and worked on it for awhile.
Ok Only pic I have today is this poor mocking bird shaking off the rain i hear a cardinal outside but can't spot it

watched the new show "The Chew" that took the place of my soap. Not too impressed. too much perkiness. from all of them.
ok Hope your day is going well.

    I also watched "The Chew" for the first and last time, today. I give them a couple of months and they'll be history.

My favorite daytime show is still "The View". I tried out "The Talk" on CBS and didn't like it.

  Hi Eleni.......

It is raining hard and is also very windy here, so I will do some cleaning when I finish sparking. Our COMPANY returns tomorrow, so I want to get as much done as I can today. Maybe I should take a nap so that I nourish my patience!!! If I snap and kill my BIL, will you call me in prison?
Have a good day......

  Hi Eleni.......

It was so nice to talk to you today. I have heard your voice on your videos, but it was much clearer on the phone. The hour went very fast and we still have lots to talk about. We will do it again soon.

Love your Art work and Landon's too. Have a great week.

    I got rained on today, and wet feet into the bargin. It was a quiet day here too - I did make another big pot of soup - the same as last time, except two pounds of black beand instead of peas, and half a big head of cabbage instead of celery. I also left out the mushrooms so the BW can safely eat some. No corn, wheat, mushrooms, or tomatoes if she wants to eat some.

  Hi Eleni........

It would be nice to get a phone call to let you know what is going on. It only takes a couple of minutes........

I am tired tonight. I went to a Dinner Theatre production of 7 Brides for 7 Brothers with my SIL today. It was fun, but I am worn out from trying to keep up with all we have had going on lately.

Have a good Sunday.

    We all need our rest even the guys who are working on your yard. They probably have family and wanted to spend some time with them on a weekend day. Don't fret or worry it will get done and you will be happy with the results.
Have a wonderful weekend. Sandy

Saw a Hummingbird and a Swallowtail today

Friday, September 23, 2011

I was wondering if I would ever see another hummingbird and today I did. It stayed longer too. I tried to get some pics but only got this one. Not the best but you can see what it is if you look closely.

Then right after it left a black Swallowtail came and stayed long enough for me to get a picture. It has been coming by almost every day but only long enough for me to see it but not take a pic.

And always are dragonflies flies lately

And here is Brianna

The back yard is beginning to be a small nightmare as nothing is going right. Guy put new pump in today but now piping needs something else. The lawn guys did fill in the holes but that's about all they did.It is just a bunch of small delays. I don't know why things never seem to go smoothly for us.
They never came back to finish up next door. Front and back yard full of bamboo branch's and still all of bamboo not down.
What ever happened to people doing a good job.
My eating is not good at all. can't get my mojo in gear. That is stressful not succeeding.
Stressed out about my daughters even tho there is nothing I can do.
I know.Excuses,Excuses.
Ok Hope you are having a good day.

    Good pictures - and I hope your yard gets done soon. Our new kitchen took unexpectedly longer because the new cabinets weren't all right three times - the last time we gave up and just took what they sent. we were cooking on a hot plate and washing dishes in the bathroom for quite a while.

  Hi Eleni.........
When your Cleome blossoms are in full bloom, you will see lots of both Hummers and Butterflies.

Love your usual.

I am sorry about your stress.........I wish that I could give you good advice on how to handle it..........but I can't give myself good advice and I am knee-deep in stress 90% of the time!!! I have stories about the stress of company that will have you rolling on the floor.

Have a good weekend.

    I've decided that my kids are strongholds in my life. I allow their problems to give me permission to binge. I have to get better at "giving it to God". A mother's heart...bittersweet. I can only imagine our frustration with the backyard. I'm trying to play Scarlett with mine!

Disappointed in back yard.

Thursday, September 22, 2011

I was hoping they would not take all of bamboo tree down but they are. I wanted it to stay as it gave some shade to part of yard and birds loved it. I hope birds go to the other neighbors tree.It will take some getting use to being able to see sky and trees way over that I never could see before.
Then they had a problem in our yard with sprinkler system. Our pump wouldn't handle the heads. Now we have to wait til we have a new pump put in.They think it can be done Sat. So yard is dug up and no sod can be put down yet. We had hoped to get sod down . This back yard is getting very expensive.I hope it will be worth it.
Roxy went to vets today and she is in perfect health. but she was very bad mannered. Two different dogs wanted to just say hello and she snarled and snapped at them.We think she just didn't want them near Bill.Jealous.
Just got a call from my son Benjamin and little Ben has been in the hospital since yesterday. Poor guy gets so constipated that he ends up in hospital for it. Not a fun thing for a twelve year old boy.
Angel and Brianna are suppose to come over and do a few things.
Oh My experimental meal the other night turned out very good. Now all I have to do is try to remember what I put in it. emoticon
Ok later

    Poor Ben! Ash has chronic constipation too. We frequently have "code brown" weekends where she gets flushed and cleaned out. Not fun for anyone!

I hope he feels better soon.

And I hope that your backyard gets finished and looks amazing. I can't wait for pictures of the end product. emoticon

    Bummer about the bamboo! I'm sure that your yard will be gorgeous and well worth it once it's finished!

Hope little Ben is doing better.

    We can moan and groan together...I have nothing but lots of dirt and a few weeds...which will grow into a forest of weeds once the rains come.... but then, we do have a back yard and we can retreat there when we want... glorious!

    Poor little Ben!

Your backyard will be a beautiful place once you are done with it. I know what it feels like to lose big trees and shade though. At least bamboo grows fast if you can plant more.

Have a nice evening!

PS my backyard looks horrible and has no future of looking better, so I love to look at your photos and pretend. emoticon emoticon

    My backyard is so sad right now....I hate going back there. The pool is still down and the fence needs mending. I'm going to see if there's anything my yard man can do...otherwise I have to wait for Tracy to come back. (Larry's son...and my stepson. He's really like MY son, too.) What did you cook for your mystery meal?

    It seems with any kind of improvements there are always clitches--nothing every goes smooth. With our dog it seems he always wants to make friends with the other dogs and has a shrill bark so everyone looks at us and wonder why he has to bark so loud--LOL!! I'm really sorry about your poor GS having to be in the hospital as that must be embarrassing and not fun at his age. . .I'm glad your meal was delicious!! Enjoy your evening--any new TV shows you'd recommend yet?

    Have Bill put in some taller type of tree or more bamboo I love the bamboo I just planted on the side yard to deter golf balls from hitting the side of the house.
The birds need somewhere they can feel safe so they will keep coming back to visit.
Hope you and the girls have a good visit. Sandy
