Happy Birthday I am with you. I also do not like to be cold. I can not wait for the warmer weather. I was so tired of being stuck in the house that I went out and gathered tumble weeds and made a huge burn pile out of them. I thought I was going to freeze to death LOL
Congrats on the grand babies .You seem very active and wonderful to me so you must be doing something right.Those babies are lucky to have you as a great grand ;)

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

We were supposed to go to Bien Shur for dinner tonight to celebrate my birthday. BUT I don't want to get out in the cold, drive for an hour, eat and come back. I think we will celebrate another day at NOON! Man I must be getting old. Actually I am old, but still having fun and enjoying life. One of my grandkids just had a baby and I found out yesterday that another is due in July! Two great grandbabies in less than a year. Yup I'm old.

It is snowing a bit right now and I am looking forward to summer! Not a fan of cold. Enjoy your day and stay warm.

Hang on, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

Glad to have you back! I've been MIA for a while. Even though we don't celebrate a traditional Christmas, it sure takes up my time. And I have been redoing window coverings in the dining and living rooms. It sure is cold, and I guess you are probably socked in with snow. We got some, but it was a bit south of us and of course the east was hammered. My dogs think it is enough snow to make the stove a good place to be.

Have a joyous time with your Mom. I envy both the mom-time and the warmth of Florida! Isn't it amazing how some people take advantage of a good deed and then get angry with the good deed doer!? At least you can now have some privacy and personal time.

Enjoy your day!

Uneventful return trip, but have been running since! Got my sewing room pretty much done and have started on my living and dining room Roman shades. Enjoying being able to make a mess and just close the door on it! What a concept.

Great grand baby Oliver Ryan was born on the 3rd. He was 10lbs and 8oz. Cesarean and several days late. Beautiful boy! Family doing well.

Enjoy your day!

Thanksgiving was great. I majored in desert. My son loves to bake.It has been cold and icky here. I keep hoping the sun will come back out .I bet it is much colder up in your part of the state.
I would love to have my entire family together one day too. Like you they are scattered. I am approaching great grandma territory age too. They grow up way too fast .
hope you had a safe trip home :)

Did everyone have a super Thanksgiving? Mine was wonderful--we are visiting family in Portland and we have gotten a lot of walking into the days and ate on plan for dinner yesterday. The best part is seeing all of the kids and grandkids. Only missing my oldest who is expecting a grandchild in the next day or two--my first great-grand baby! And of course the grandkids are spread all over the country. I doubt we will ever have them in one place at the same time!

I understand the weather is pretty iffy in NM. That storm hit Portland just before we arrived and the skies are sunny and blue. It is chilly, but not bad. Back in NM tomorrow and not looking forward to the COLD!

Enjoy your day!

Those sound wonderful. I never really caught on to sewing. Now in retrospect I wish I had . I think I would enjoy it but am to cheap to buy a machine in case I am wrong LOL I gave my 2 away many years ago

Today after my walk I am going to do the floors. I did the kitchen yesterday .It was way over due. Hard to clean when there are people in your way.I guess I will just chase them around with the mop LOL
Okay off to work with me. The critters say I need to feed them too before I leave emoticon

Neurotic isn't so bad sometimes. I am trying to get everything finished before leaving on Tuesday--not sure it will all happen, but it will be close enough.

One thing I have decided in my mad cleaning--I need new window coverings (roman shades) for my living and dining rooms. These have been up for 18 years and really are looking a bit shabby. So when I get home, I will order fabric and start sewing. I am getting my sewing out of the living room and moving it to a guest room upstairs. A win win for sure!

Enjoy your day!

My JRT was hard on rats too. I miss him so much. If I could find another dog like him I would be thrilled. I think they call them Parson Russel now. He had the longer legs and a broken coat. He was a great dog .He came from hunt stock in NJ back then they were all just JRT his mo was a shorty dad had legs.LOL He wasn't super hyper and over bred like they are now.
I have had a good hunting week, I caught the gopher that has been terrorizing the front garden two days ago and last night we trapped the woodpile rat :)I have a feeling it is going to be a long Winter
The kittens are growing but it will be a while before they are up and at em. Hope they last for a little while. This is really the wrong time of year to add them. The coyotes are coming closer already
Have a great trip. I still have company so things are in a disarray. LOL Maybe it is healthy for me to not be so neurotic LOL emoticon

I know kittens don't tend to last long here in the Jemez either. Earlier this year I had a pack rat in my car air conditioner. Did $600 worth of damage and smelled pretty bad too. I wish my front parking area and the front of the house was fenced. My rat terriers do a great job of keeping the back critter free, but don't want them in the unfenced areas.

Almost ready to leave for Portland next week.The house is almost clean and the house sitter is all set. I'm so looking forward to four days away.

Enjoy the day!

I can see the snow on sierra blanca . Looks like it is pretty white up there. Down here it was a tad drizzly and very very windy No snow. Just the way I like it ;)
I am already whining for warmer weather. I love the seasons when we have light. I can't stand being stuck in the dark for the winter. I feel like I never have enough time to get anything done LOL
Got two kittens yesterday. Had a pack rat taking up residence under the jeep hood emoticon You know how bad that can be!!! SO I guess I need more barn cats. It just kills me when the coyotes get them.
HOpe dog training was a blast .

Wasn't the snow great yesterday?! I have a feeling that we may be sick of snow by spring, but it sure is pretty today. We ended up with about 1/2 inch of rain and 4" of snow. But the roads are clear so can still get to my dog training.

Enjoy the day!

I hope everyone is doing well this bright Saturday morning! I have been cleaning and reorganizing this past week. Built a standing desk and painted it. I had been using a milk carton to see if I liked and could use a standing desk, and after a couple of months decided that yes I do like standing at the computer. Then I wanted something a little more elegant and practical. Built a simple box 30" x 18" and 12" high to set on my regular desk. Painted the top purple and the box and built in storage desk peanut butter. Wonderful color!

Caught two rats in the past three days! Glad to have them gone.

Enjoy your day!

Painting--as you may have realized from past posts--not my favorite thing. Hope you are finished and can enjoy your guests! A friend recommended the eRATicator (not sure of the spelling--it is like eradicator--but with a RAT in it). It uses D batteries and electrocutes the suckers. She swears by it. Haven't tried it yet.

Shopping today, but no time constraints and will just take my time and enjoy.

Enjoy your day!

People are crazy anymore. My son said some one jumped out of their car and threatened him with a baseball bat last week here in Alamogordo????? I just don't get it anymore.

We just finished painting the utility room. I keep oil etc up on shelves in there because the mice chew holes through stuff if I leave it in the cabinets. I had the stuff in there for 2 days and they were back.Monsters. I am afraid to use poison because of the critters and they seem to get off of sticky traps. Maybe I will have to try the old fashioned snap traps. Only I usually snap my finger.

Been busy moving stuff here and there. Some of our friends are coming to stay with us for a while. So I cleared a closet and a dresser so they would be able to stow their stuff. I found out they were on their way after I started the utility room.LOL we also broke a pipe when painting last night. SO glad Jimmy is a maintenance tech and can do most of the crazy repairs we encounter doing projects in this house. They always seem to spiral .
Oh well I am off to bed. Safe travels tomorrow

Recycling the garden beds does sound like a lot of work, but know you will be happy to have them next spring. Bob cleaned a rat out of one of the fan vents yesterday--they have been horrendous this year. After the $600 hit to the car air conditioner earlier this summer, I keep the hood open and hang a light in the engine compartment every night. No further problems there, but the suckers are trying to get in everywhere.

Today is dog training and I am looking forward to that--though after the horrible road rage incident last week, I am not looking forward to the drive. I came through that area just after three on my way home last week to avoid rain on the interstate. Rain is better than bullets.

I stopped drinking coffee about a year ago. I was super addicted to it. I now drink tea and every once in a while I will make some "cowboy coffee" on top of the stove in one of those old fashioned perc pots
Bummer about the electric that would slow me down. We do not have any wood under the porch either. I am sort of hesitating because we had a rat out there twice last year. They really make a mess so I hate to encourage the little buggers. We had the fire going today in the wood stove just to burn one of those cleaning logs .Tomorrow hubby will get up and clean the pipes out really good. I am sure it wont be long until we will need the wood stove. There was snow on the mountain this morning.I like it best when it stays up there LOL
We ad rain on and off all day yesterday,bad storms last night
Today we went to my sons and dug up his raised gardens and brought home the forms and the dirt. It will give us more planters and the old dirt will improve some of the new sections we are planning to garden. UGH it was a lot of work .
Then we cleaned up and went to the $4. movie
HAHAHAHA I never did bake the cookies I planned to bake. Maybe tomorrow I have the gingerbread dough in the fridge .

Best laid plans--the electricity went out yesterday and I was without coffee for several hours! NO COFFEE! How does anyone get anything done without coffee. No electricity also made it difficult! We got 1.65 inches of rain yesterday in a steady downpour. I always enjoy a steady rain as it is so rare here. Also enjoyed the first fire of the season--though I was singularly unprepared. No wood under the porch and all a bit damp, but finally got it hot and enjoyed the day.

Enjoy yours!

The pack rats and gophers are starting to move closer to the house already and it is not even that cold yet. I trap them in a small havaheart trap.. They make such a mess. I am really starting to hate these adorable cute cartoon character faced kangaroo rats too.

Must be the day for it. I am cleaning up the house as well. I did manage to get in my walk and work out. Now I just want to veg out with my book

I bet you had more fun than I did--even if I did make some money. Sitting around watching people make decisions about your 'stuff' can be less than pleasurable! Collapsed yesterday and vegged the whole day. Nice to have days like that once in a while.

Got to get on to the laundry today and then start on cleaning the house. And have to get a rat out of one of the vents--definitely NOT looking forward to that. Pack rats are a real pest. I have to leave my car hood up every night with a light in it to keep them out of the engine--you may remember the $600 worth of damage earlier this year. YUCK!

Enjoy the day.

YEAH!!!!!! Go you !!!!!
I had a great day too. I did not make any money though :/ I went to see my 7 year old grand daughter cheer for the little football team and then tonight I took them to a zombie obstacle course . They had a blast I think my husband was bored to death.There was a teen aged heavy metal band there. They were adorable and talented . We left before the more seasoned bands played .The grand girlies were getting cold .

Got rid of everything but a Limoges coffee service and four individual cast iron teapots (and I forgot them until the last hour of the sale--next year!) Made around $300 which was very nice!

Next year I'll work on the garage!

Very tired, time for a soak and early to bed.

Enjoy your evening.

Some years back my dad gave me an old Winchester .22 rifle he had since he was around 10. It still fires well and is very accurate.We leave it out for hostile yard intruders .

These guys are not bad on nails. Tuweep used to be awful. I got mad and gave him a good scruff shake about 6 months ago. Now he just sits there. LOL The girls were the worst ever .The doberman had talons .I never had such bad dogs.

okay off to work with me Hope you get rid of lots of stuff today and don't bring anything new home :)

That is nice to have a memento from your Dad that actually works! Bob got an old rifle (revolutionary war old) from his Dad, but don't think we will be firing THAT! My brother got my folks' guns, mostly just a couple of shotguns.

It looks like tomorrow will be chilly, but little chance of rain. Hopefully the sun will shine!

I have been putting off the nail cutting chore--will have to do everyone this week.

I didn't know that. I always included it in my wild flower arrangement when I live back East. I loved it.

Had a busy day today but fun. Had the added chore of running into town early because the sink drain was leaking and we needed parts. I guess it was a bonus for me because I was not hungry enough yet to want an ice cream cone so I saved calories LOL

I really love my new gun. I was amazed at how nicely it fired and how accurate it was. It was my dad's service revolver.

Off to cut the dog nails and then to get a few more steps in. Good Luck at your sale tomorrow :)

A lot of people think goldenrod causes allergies, but it is a heavy pollen plant, pollinated by bees not by wind. The real allergy plant is a relative called ragweed that blooms (not showy at all) at the same time of year. Europe has done most of the hybrid work with goldenrod and there are some gorgeous plant varieties out there. We have it growing wild as well. But it does take over sometimes!

Enjoy your day!

I have never seen golden rod around here. It was very popular in the north. Many people were allergic to it. It was very hated there. I always thought it was pretty. It does take over though. I am working on the cut them before they seed project down here with a lot of the wild flowers that has been showing up. I at first thought they were gorgeous. Now they have over run the place . The last week of cool days and drizzle have caused them to start sprouting again so we have started the hoing around to disrupt them
Okay off to chores with me . we went for a nice walk this morning . later we are going to go shooting . And then we are taking the corgi boys for poochie cones. They are so excited
Have a great day :)

When we first moved here (18-19 years ago), I did a lot of flagstone work--building front and back patios and planting thyme and veronica between the stones. Fast forward and I now have goldenrod coming up between all of the stones. It is beautiful this time of year, but you can't even tell there are patios any more--just big gardens of goldenrod. This year I am going to cut it all back after the first frost and maybe some will die back. At least they shouldn't seed anymore! Grocery shopping scheduled for today.

Enjoy your day!

I like your tent idea. Best to stay warm and dry.
Glad tipsy is good for the moment. Hope she will continue to do well..
We usually hit the hot tub at night after dinner and before bed. It is so relaxing. I am pretty worthless after that too LOL I think it is the point
I took my zrytec last night and it seems better. Maybe I just need to switch medications .I think it is just allergies because I feel fine .
I bet the garden looks great. Some times things just need to be opened up a bit. Really changes to look of a garden . I have to cut back some of the ice plant in the front yard it is really over grown again out there..
Have a great day :)

Tipsy seems to be doing well, no heavy scratching or hair loss. I will have to watch next spring for continuing allergies. My oldest kid has a deposit on a Corgi puppy (that hasn't been bred yet). I thought of you when he told me. He is in Oregon.

It looks like this weekend will be cold and wet. I will put up the tent and on a jacket--I want to get rid of some stuff!

My nose has been dry, but I can still breathe. But I know what you mean--hope it clears up soon.

The soak was marvelous! Cool with a breeze outside the pool and good and hot inside the pool. I prefer to soak in the afternoon, come home and collapse. Today we went in the morning--I've been worthless ever since!

I think I told you that I cut out a bunch of shrubbery and a couple of trees to open up the back yard. It looks good. Now I am waiting for a frost so I can clean up the gardens. I'm a bit tired of greenery!

I wish I was closer. I think that sounds so neat.I hope your weather will be perfect. How is Tipsy's skin doing. Is she over her bout now. I think everyone needs a break sometimes
Hope you really had a great soak too. It is about that time of year when we start to run our hot tub again .It is too hot down here in the Summer for that

I have a cold or something. My sinuses are gross ,but I do not feel bad. My client has been sick .He was really down. I guess I have a better diet and such.Hoping whatever this is it passes quickly . I hate not breathing LOL

Been busy putting the garden to bed and cutting back the bamboo it is out of control .I want to try to get the dead stuff out in hopes that it will fill back instead of spreading. I am not sure if that will work LOL

I think I have been lost in the ozone for a few weeks. I'm in the final stages of getting ready for the trail sale this weekend--over thirty miles of garage sales on Rte 4 from San Ysidro at 550 to Seven Springs and even Los Alamos. Should be a grand year for it--though the weather is supposed to change to cool and possible rain.

Had a great dog obedience class yesterday. After a couple of weeks without training, I was impressed with how good Tipsy was. Maybe she liked taking some time off too!

Going for a soak at the Giggling Springs Hot Springs this morning--looking forward to some deep relaxation.

Enjoy your day!

Welcome! We've been kind of quiet lately. It has been very busy here and I have slacked off! Took out 5 bushes and two trees yesterday from an over-planted landscape (over-planted in the beginning for a fuller look, but when you fast forward 18 years it is just plain CROWDED!) Always knew I would eventually have to cull and yesterday was the day. Love the new sight lines and look of the place! Can't MOVE today, but hey, you gotta sacrifice sometimes.

Enjoy the day.

I did enjoy my trip. It was very relaxing. The elk were bugling in full force and very active so we got to see them as we hiked. One even crossed up the road from us and I watched him play in the road for about 10 minutes. He was rolling like a horse in the road. It was amazing to see him do that with all those antlers on his head
I have no idea how many car loads of stuff I took to the thrift store when i was on my purging cycle . I dropped off a load every week for a couple of months. It is shocking how much stuff we accumulate over the years
Happy purging :)

Arlene, did you enjoy your camping last week?

I am continuing to gather and price stuff for the trail sale. My living room is going to be overwhelmed by the time the actual sale rolls around! Lots of things I can live without.

Enjoying the cooler weather today. Enjoy your day.

Great idea for a weed barrier. I never thought of that. I usually just pass them on to the thrift stores if they are in good shape. WOW sounds like you have a serious laundry not just washers and dryers
They used to do a big sale up in Capitian. I have never gone but it sounded like fun. I love to go garages saling .That would sure make it easier to find places :)
Going camping after work this morning :) Yeah I think I am ready
See you all Friday emoticon

I have so many sets of sheets--after my last mangle broke, I got microfiber sheets for the cottage, stopped ironing the sheets and rotated the 100% cotton into my linen closet. So I have six sets of almost new sheets. All of the ones older than that went down in my backyard as a "weed" cloth under six inches of wood chips. Also used old duvet covers, comforters, rugs and mattress pads. I still have a box of something marked linens, but not touching it right now.

I am going to have a great group of things to sell at the Jemez Trail Sale in October. We've been doing this sale for 10-15 years and originally based it on the one that goes through Tennessee. It has finally become a big thing and the road is packed that weekend with people looking for bargains and treasures and as a bonus, they get to see the fall color. I usually have a group of things to sell, but this year, I am really going to get rid of stuff!

Have fun on your camping trip and enjoy your day.

I do the same thing. We are both guilty of hold on to stuff we no longer wear. I have been forcing us to narrow it down.
I also have way to many sheet and comforter sheets LOL I change them with the seasons...goofy!!!
Hoping to trim some bamboo back in the yard today .Also have to go shopping after hubby gets home from work.Some where in between I will shower and prepare food for the camping trip LOL

I must have been by the cleaning bug today. I have changed out shelves in the laundry closet and my walk-in closet. What a job. But they both will work better. I must have thrown away eight pairs of shoes from Bob's part of the closet. He gets new running shoes, but refuses to throw away the old ones. This time I didn't ask him, just threw 'em away. They were under a pile of old clothes that I THINK he doesn't wear any more. GEEZ.

Hope you enjoyed your day.

I am a bit of a pack rat too but I have everything out where I have to dust it. LOL Our house looks like a gift shop. I have stuff all over the walls and in all the nooks and crannies.It is sort of just comfy not overwhelming unless you like blank spaces.I gripe about the dusting though LOL
I try to stay out of hubby's work shop he just has stuff heaped every where and then is mad when he can't find something. It drives me crazy

The sign is finished except for putting the backside UP. Just seems like it has been so busy or raining. It will get up (I think)!

I hate clutter and periodically go through and dump stuff. My husband is something of a pack rat, so I will never be completely clutter-free. And there are some things I can't bear to part with too. But every year there are fewer things that I want to keep. We have the Jemez Mountain Trail Sale coming up in October--over twenty six miles of garage sales along Hwy. 4. I always gather some stuff and sell it then.

Back to de-cluttering.

LOL I know . I do loose several hours of prep time though. Now I have to have everything ready to go on Tuesday instead of Wednesday at 4 sounds stupid I know . But i do certain things on certain days. I am a wacko. I still have to work so he is grumpy gills in the morning when I get up too BLEECH!!!!!
I am baking more zucchini cookies today.They freeze well . I will be glad when the garden is done for the year. I am running out of room in the freezer LOL
I did a huge decluttering in 2013 after my son died. I think it was a healing thing. I took so much unnecessary stuff to the thrift store. Even my shed out back is pretty organized.
. I had so many decorations for all holidays . Cages from all the rescue stuff we used to do. Just stuff that was collecting dust and making good homes for mice. It feels good to know where everything is.
I need to start doing some of the projects I want to do with scrap booking . MY photo albums are falling apart. I though I would have fun building new ones and sharing the pics with my other son and daughter. LOL someday. I still have not even attempted to paint the benches since I got rained out with the grand daughters.
How is that sign coming???? emoticon

It got kind of hectic last month and the beginning of this one. It should start to settle back into a routine for the rest of the year. I need to get ready for winter with a top to bottom house cleaning and decluttering. I am sure enjoying the cool mornings! Makes walking fun again. Gee, Arlene, that is awful to have to go camping with your husband! (GRIN) But I know what you mean: it disrupts the routine. No train of thought here today, better stop chattering and get on with the day! Enjoy yours.

Hang on, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

I have been wondering how the dog trials went. Congrats on the first leg. You have to start somewhere :)
My hubby takes Wednesdays off this time of year to burn up his paid sick time. I really messes me up too LOL I usually get my errands done on that day after work. Now we go camping or he goes with me :/ I guess if that is the worse thing in my life I am doing okay.
Been walking and keeping busy around the homestead
I was starting to think I lost this thread.
Glad to see you guys check in :)

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.
