There's not a whole lot of randomness around here today. I got up about 4 AM as I woke up and couldn't get back to sleep. Amazing how much you can get done first thing in the morning without phones ringing and interruptions.
load of laundry going-check
kitchen counter cleared-check
writing post-almost check
I have to have my kitchen totally cleaned out by Monday morning. Most everything is either on my dining room table or down in my sewing room. What a mess! At least I still have a kitchen to use in Mom and Dad's apartment. Several of you that did kitchen remodels told about washing dishes in the bathroom sink. I think there will be a lot of take-out in the next several weeks!
Have any of you been following the Ber*nie Mad*off scam? How can someone hide that much money? With 65 billion missing and only 1 billion accounted for there must be some bank on an island somewhere that is just bursting at the seams with money! I feel so bad for the people that thought they had their golden years all taken care of and now have nothing. One elderly man in Florida has gone back to work as a bag boy to help make ends meet. I don't think Mr. Mad*off will see the light of day again outside of a prison. Now they are saying that more members of his family are involved. Sad.
I have been diligently working on getting pictures printed off and put in albums. With so many pictures on my computer I was getting a bit nervous about it crashing and losing everything. I have filled about three albums and now have to do the journaling before I put in any more pictures. For me the journaling is as important as the picture itself. Some say you should always do the journaling in your own handwriting but sometimes I like doing it on the computer in fancy or funny fonts in different colors to match the matting behind the picture. How many of you do scrapbooking and what do you think about the journaling?
Nancy over at Nancy's Nonsense has passed along this award to all of her regular readers. Thank you Nancy! I think this is a great award as so many of us out here in Bloggityville have formed such a bond. I feel very blessed to have met and made friendships with so many of you over the last few years. I can't imagine missing out on this very special Sisterhood! I too would like to pass this on to my readers. Enjoy!
My turkeys have been coming by faithfully every day. Must have something to do with the grain that I put out for them...... They usually come single file from the woods and hang around even after they have eaten, preening themselves on the fence in the sun. We have about 40 at last count. The painters begged for me to let them come hunting during turkey season. NOT!
Have lots of gray squirrels and a few reds. Noodles and Munchie keep a good eye on them. Yesterday there was one in the feeder on the deck and Noodles was sitting right under it. The squirrel had no idea he was around. I went out to shoo him away and the squirrel didn't even seem to notice me walking towards him When I got close enough I could see that he only had one eye that he could see out of. The other one was gone, all healed over and had obviously been that way for a long time. He turned his head a bit and caught sight of me with the good eye and scampered off. He's full grown so has managed okay even with his sight problem.
Look at that big fluffy tail!
Guess that's it for today. My sister is coming for the weekend, T's birthday is here on Saturday evening, computer class this morning and more kitchen stuff to do so it will be a busy weekend. Have a good one! :o)
