Seasons Greetings

Merry Christmas to everyone.
I hope to post before the New Year but I don't know what will happen.
On a funny note, Auntie was putting things into my stocking today and the loop came off. I got t sew it back on so we could hang it.

Buurrrrrrr.

Hey I said that I would try not to quote Christmas carols.
My 'allergies' on Saturday turn out to be a bug. This morning my fever broke just for Fey to get it.
Ayden had been a ball of energy. The wind gust were at about 55 today so no one when out. The winds should die down in a day or two.
Okay, nap time.

We know how to make a mess.

Before and after pictures of the Library.

Stuff that was pulled out of the living room while Fay vacuumed (below). Ayden was supervising her.

That is 2 of 7 rooms cleaned for the holidays. We did this on Friday. Saturday, I was to finish up the kitchen, but I spend the day dealing with my allergies instead. Oh well, there is always tomorrow.

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

No new ones

I have no plans of putting up any more pictures from Thanksgiving. My relatives did a wonderful job of that.
We have started to clean the house up for Christmas. Right now the plastic is going up on the windows. It is raining out side, not snow. I did pull down one of my villages to put up. The other one isn't going up. I haven't finished repainting it yet.
Normally I try to make about 5 or 6 different truffles for the holidays but this year I am think about fudge instead. It is a little less time involved. The cookie dough is ready to be baked (mostly).
Friday we will know when Fluffy is arriving. Fey thinks he will be here for Christmas.
At lest I am not quoting carols-yet.

I need a life?


(watch the eyes)

I just wanted to put down some thoughts and pictures I found. The pictures are from a Live Journal I recently started following. I hurt the saying form somewhere. I like the squirrel and I haven't figure out why yet.
The farmers are taking all the corn down now. I think that is why my allergies are acting up.
And I finally fell down the stairs. I missed the last step and landed on the floor. My hip did bruise. The other side is just painful. I don ' think I will carry down the laundry. I usually through it down, basket and all.
There is a radio station playing Christmas music now. It surprised me yesterday

Pictures

Here are pictures of Ayden after the groomers. It has to be my luck that the weather has gotten colder. He isn't getting a sweater.



Fey's father was in the Halloween parade. The first picture is of him in his uniform. They aren't the greatest of pictures. The middle Pictures is of a pair of ponies drawing a carriage.

Happy Halloween

I don't think that I will post before Saturday, so I am wishing everyone one a safe holiday.

Ayden has a grooming appointment tomorrow. His coat isn't very manageable right now, so it is coming off.


Spent the last three days visiting my parents. It is 5 hours by car, each way. I do wish there was another way to get there.


Still looking for work. I do hope to have something soon.

Here is some of the carrots from the garden. Mutant Carrots:

Welcome Fall

And I think Winter is here too. The Temperatures dropped from 75 to 40 in about 12 days. The basement is half full of wood. Hopefully we will be done with that soon.
The 'cat door' was closed for the season less than a week ago. I know Ayden has tried to ram into it a few time. I hope he hasn't hurt anything there.
On an odd note, Six weeks until Thanksgiving. I haven't decided if I am going to make my own meal or eat with Fey's family.
I am trying to restart menu planning. There has been some luck with that.
Here is the little pumpkin I got out of the garden. I painted the face on it. I believe the only thing living right now is the collards.

Needs Work

I forgot, Me is Sorry. The week has been some what eventful. Heritage Festival was okay, but after going to another County fair. I am a little tired of them.
I had a job interview on Tuesday. I start this Tuesday. I'm not too sure of this one ether
Wishing good luck to my parents. I hope the trip is uneventful for the move.
On an odd note, Eel and I don't mix.

I must like to play catch-up

Two weeks and no update, my oops. The dog went into the vet to remove the clip from the tether to his safety harness. None of use can figure out how Carrot-top got it stuck. As of Sunday, I had a headache that seemed to not go away. Auntie took me to the ER on Tuesday. I have no clue what they gave me but it was good.
The county next to ours is having their Fair next week. Fey is planning to bring me there on Monday.
Lets try for a bit closer next time.

Time to play catch up

Auntie has told me that I have been a little off lately. I never put up a menu for last week and I don't think I will this week either. My ankle stopped hurting on Wednesday. Friday I was trying to make a cross between French fries and potato chips. Third slice in, I cut my pointer figure. Pet finished cutting the potatoes for me.
Fey flea bombed the house today. I stayed out side with the fuzzy ones. She also made dinner. Auntie's room is clean(as is all the rest of the rooms). The laundry has been running all day. I think I will be going all day tomorrow as well.
They had the tournament on Thursday. It wasn't to bad. We learned a a few things to do next year.
The weather has been cooler lately. I pulled out a blanket to sleep with.

Saturday, August 22, 2009

Oops

I am sorry I haven't updated all week. I will try harder next week.
I did roll my ankle 3 times in a 48 hour period. I hurts now.

It makes me wonder. . .

if anyone is reading this thing anymore. I haven't receive feed back from my family at all. Heck some haven't updated theirs in a few months now. I do enjoy this. I hope to hear from people soon. I will continue to participate in some of the things I do, but I am getting rid of the other blog.

The weather has been alright. It cooled down for a while. The hot dogs where still frozen at dinner so I boiled them to break them up and then we cooked over the fire, Yum. I also tried brownies with zucchini. They turn out wonderful.

The car is starting to act up. I am hoping that it holds together till next year. At 15 years old, It has had a long life(I have own it for over 3). I a not planning to get a large wagon next.

Well time for dishes, maybe, I am not sure of I am up to doing them tonight

Cheesey Chicken

1/4 cup chives
2 green onions
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup chicken broth
1 lb chicken breasts
~
Preheat oven to 350.
Beat the cream cheese with the chives and onions(Or sub a container of chive and onion cream cheese, and slighty beat it).
Slowly beat in the chicken broth.
Pour over chicken.
Bake 30-45 minutes.

The guys caught Creamy sleeping in one of the planters and call me to get a picture;

Ayden thoughts


Ayden is sleep in the pillow right by my desk. He doesn't seem to what to be far away from me at all. He looks so cute asleep. Yeah Try reminding me of that when he pukes on the floor. Oh well, I don't think any of us could think of life without him.
Time to do house work.
