Time To Get Back To Work

Today is Monday, January 18, 2009. It is a beautiful day, the sun is shining, but you still need to wear a jacket. Yesterday the wind was wild. I have never seen it like it was, strong and constantly changing direction. Watching the tiny sparrows sitting on the feeder, I wondered how they were able to stay put. This stag horn still has some green to it, keeping fingers crossed.

It was a good weekend. The universal joints, both front and rear had to be changed on the truck. So we did that first, knowing that the weather was going to get bad. Neither one of us wanted to be out in the pouring rain. Didn't seem to take to long to do, nothing like the Jeep. LOL

We had a great Mexican dinner on Friday with the daughter and her family. My grand daughter made me pictures. She cut out pictures that she had colored in her coloring book, placed them on napkins and then used little stickers to hold them. She is only eight but wants to learn to scrap book. I have never done real scrap booking other than in my BOS. So I will try to get a "kit" to get her going, see if she really likes doing it. Maybe this weekend I will have her spend the night and her and I can see if we can start scrap booking together. There are a couple of little cutting machines that if she stays with it, I will have to get for her.

Thanks to Mother Moon's Message, I found a blog Bogaman's Blog. He has some really neat posts. There is one of a "chicken tractor". This is going to be one of my projects here in the next couple of weeks. Mama thought I was crazy, hubby thinks if that's what you want to do. Yes, this is something that I want to do. Very cool, thank you "X" !

Hubby dug out the tiller while he was here. It needs a carburetor. So will have to take it to the shop and get one. Have to have her running very soon. The wood pile has dwindled to nothing with the two weeks of freezing cold. So, that is another project that is going to have to been done this week. Yeah, get to work in the yard this week, weather promiting .

Hubby has left, so it is time to get busy, finish up projects, get the yard cleaned up and wood split and stacked. That wind made a real mess yesterday, limbs, moss, and mistletoe scattered throughout the yard. My craft room is in no better shape than the yard. Grand daughter let me know this.

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~


  1. Wow, you are a busy girl....very inspiring, I am going to get working on my basement and my yard as soon as I can pull myself away from these blogs :)

    Thanks for sharing.


  2. Glad you got your hubby for a few days! I hope the Staghorn makes it - I'm always so sad when one of my plants doesn't survive the Winter.

    Our weather sounds the same - very windy here the last few days, and then beautiful today! Almost tricks me into thinking Spring is here...almost!

  3. What a windy day you had! I love wind like that! Nice that you are having a beautiful day today and that you can go back to getting your work done. Take care now!

  4. you are always such a busy woman.... Yet it is one thing I do love about you.. you enjoy it all so.... I understand you about the things to do... especially as soon as the weather warmed.... glad you had some time with hubby.... know how precious that is to you... hope your week is a great one... blessings

  5. My goodess Dede, you are so busy! I am off work at the moment and I did plan to be just like you.. but, you know, I will start tomorrow, you inspired me!! Hope you are well!! ((hugs))

  6. Awww, you and your grand daughter are going to have a great time scrapbooking. Thats such a great idea. Obviously you are in an area that you can have chickens, we are not, sigh. Pets, dinner or eggs? You get so much accomplished, I don't know how you get it all done, do you sleep, lol.


  7. Wow, you always have projects! I wish I had half the energy you have. :) Your plant looks like one of mine....I'm crossing my fingers too. :)


  8. You seriously amaze me with all you do.

    I love how the family is always around you, that is how it should be.

    You asked how I am today. Totally shitty actually. Everything is sore, oh well.



It was nice of you to take time out of your busy day to stop by. Blessings to you and your family! (((HUGS)))
