  1. Popping in to say hi! HI!! Been super busy. Worked all weekend getting firewood. What a great but exhaustisng work out! have to get moving on my swap too. Maybe thursday. I took off for a dr appt and will have to whole day to do stuff. Have a great night everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. :ghost:skeleton Happy Halloweeny! :ghost:skeleto
  3. We got about 4" of the 10-15" predicted. Sorry to those without power and trees down. We were lucky......... this time.
  4. Lol!! My friends friend has a BULL (yes bull) named chunky monkey! Well I've been wanting to get rid of my NOT comfy sofa sleeper and bring the daybed into the living room from the porch. So we went and dumped it night before last. Me, Sue, Kenne and Andre', crammed into my ranger (good thing for jump seats) and hauled it off. Last night I wrestled in the daybed. I have the whole LR ripped apart. My gypsy blood makes me re arrange when I can, I cant stand things to be the same forever. The LR Has been pretty much the same since I moved here in spring '03. I love the change, even tho its minimal. Glad Fil is home Cindy! Have a great day everyone!!
  5. hello! On the computer at the library. My home one is really tired. Maybe Santa will bring me a new one. **sigh** I have some sites I have to come here for because the sites are too graphic heavy to load at home. Oh well. Have a great day!
  6. Hi all! Been busy collecting firewood. This morning I worked with my friend detailing a truck & car, then moved log lengths, then me & Sue filled my truck with split stuff, then I unloaded that and went back for more lengths. My arms are killing me! I just joined the stocking stuffer swap, Now I will need a stocking pattern I like. Dont know if I'll crochet, knit or sew.
  7. Kenne has been helping me like crazy I make sure theres always his brand of beer in the fridge and he keeps coming ro help me. He's a wonderful friend. AND my friend Wayne, ya remember the one that was rumored to be dead, well he wants the old jeep to use at his hunting camp. So its out of here soon! And he's paying me for it with firewood! Doing ok here. Had a couple of older people I know pass away over the past week. The count of people I knew, or am close to their survivors, is now at 20 since last November. Henry and Vivien, a sweet couple, I know their kids, grand kids, remember when Vivien came in my store. Both 94 died within 6 weeks of each other. That poor family is exhausted. Kenne gave me a bunch of cucumbers from his garden. I'm off to pickle, garlic dills, YUM! And watch the Giants, then maybe go to Steves memorial get together if it isn't pouring rain.
  8. I go through 8 cords a winter on average. I don't like it as hot as Marton did so I may use less. Well I love to see crafts. maybe I'll look you up. My real name is Nancy so watch for me I'll probably pop in there tomorrow from the library. VERY nice!!!
  9. just cleaning & the such. No yarn involved. I did stack a little wood later in the day. First ya have to know he has a 'dark' look to him. He has dark with some gray s&p in there hair, and a dark complexion. The you get to his eyes and they're a very light ice blue. Very striking. WOW! Gorgeous quilt!! nope Cindy glad you had a good time away. Can ya come to my house and clean like all that for me? Marlene awol is ok, we all have life that gets in the way. OK, when Marton died I emailed a bunch of online friends who I'd lost touch with. A couple years ago I joined facebook and never went back. They found me there and my email was flooded with friend requests. So I went to the library and went back to FB.(my computer here is too old & slow to load social networks) So if anyone is on there I can pm you my name if you want to add me. Got a load of work to do today. Yard work, wood stacking, pickle making, cleaning... I need 3 more of me to get it done.
  10. Its raining here today. I took my truck in this morning to get the front brakes fixed and he found a bad ball joint too, so thats fixed. I had a feeling I had bad one(s) because of the way my old tires wore out. Good thing is I didn't need calipers so the part $$ went to the ball joint instead. His worker said I was 1 bump from the ball joint completely letting go. Then we stood talking about tattoos till another customer came in. (ruined my good time ) Did I mention this guy has gorgeous eyes??? anywhoooooo............ I was going to stack firewood with the rest of my day off, but then the rain started. And its supposed to only be in the mid 60's today. I don't want to make myself sick, so its indoor work for me. Great doggy pictures Judy!!
  11. My cousin-in-law sent me this. Thought I'd share...... ***************** I think this is one of the neatest things I have ever read. To the women I'm sending this to: Thank you for being you. The Clock God doesn't give you the people you want; He gives you the people you NEED... to help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you and to make you into the person you were meant to be. I LOVE YOU!!!!! NOW, YOU'RE ON THE CLOCK!!!! IN 9 MINUTES SOMETHING WILL MAKE YOU HAPPY, BUT YOU HAVE TO TELL 9 SISTERS YOU LOVE THEM INCLUDING ME.. GO!!!! One Flaw In Women Women have strengths that amaze men..... They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy. They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry. They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous. They fight for what they believe in.. They stand up to injustice. They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution. They go without so their family can have. They go to the doctor with a frightened friend. They love unconditionally. They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.. They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart. Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning. They bring joy, hope and love. They have compassion and ideas. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital things to say and everything to give.. HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN, IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH. Please pass this along to all your women friends and relatives to remind them just how amazing they are.
  12. The area manager had a lapse of stupid for once and thought. She usually just thinks of herself.(see more below) I'm good here. Town didn't flood. My house was not even sorta threatened. Big needles and double yarn will definitely go faster! The rest of the story: We are not going to Maine. Donna took her mom to the doc who said travel is not a good idea. Sondra could suddenly fill up with fluids and even have a heart attack in the car on the way up to ME. If we were away and anything happened we wouldn't know where to go. Here Donna knows where the Dr's & hospitals are and she could help her mom. Second The flood waters are receding. Towns are starting to get better. We are a federal disaster area, but we'll get through. It could have been worse. and for the grand finale; :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D I was looking out the window at work thursday. I see a bunch of men I know talking. I look and think 'that guy looks like Wayne' Then I think, 'no, its my head playing tricks on me cause I want him to be ok' well :D:D:D:D I look at Deb & James(co workers) and say 'I gotta go to the gas station and get a snack.' I run out the door and go over :D:D:D:D and theres WAYNE! :woo:woo:woo:woo I go up to him & say 'do you know how many rumors have been on the internet about you?' he says 'yeah, I heard I'm dead' So i grabbed his arm and said' ok you're real' Yup had to touch him to be sure. He had been in Albany med. With everything going on, stress, his previous trauma ( i did tell you he fell 50 feet out of a tree and broke his back all up, right), his body had had enough and just shut down. They treated him there for pneumonia and sent him on his merry way. I am a very happy camper. So is Kenne, they'd been friends since they were kids. He was way ticked when everything became rumors.
  13. Good luck with school Dorothy! I've been working on a round ripple, not sure yet whose going to get it.
  14. It's me again. The Bank closed my branch for the day cause of the rain/potential flood. The Area manager told mymanager that Stephanie& I were to be given today off. We're supposed to report to other branches if ours closes to work. But we 2 live in Phoenicia and the Area mang. was afraid if we left we might not get home again. My Mgr said the roads leading in/out of town were being closed off. The one on our main highway was almost under again, so no way into the area. I called Kenne & Steve (they work together, Steves the one with the house where we camped & played manly croquet ) and told them stuff was closing. Stephanie was evacuated from her house at 6 this morning. I wasn't sure Kenne would be getting home tonight. The rain has let up some now. The water looks like its receding. But it is supposed to start up heavier again tonight. Keep your that it does no more than mist or sprinkle. So with a day off I guess I should pull out some yarn......... NO gotta get stuff done around here! (yaaaarn, yaaaarn) gah! :lol:lol Dusti the girls are really cute!
