Wow where do I start….I know it’s been 5 or 6 days since I posted here but in my defense it’s been way too nice to be inside on the pc, and by the time I make it in the house, after getting super made, dishes done etc I’m just way too pooped to do anything.

Today is a dreary rainy day so I don’t mind being here.  Actually got a tut done for the GOF tuts committee which is great.  You can see it in the GOF section if you are interested.

So what have I been doing?  Well I worked on the weekend as usual and by the time I work, sleep and spend time with my son I really don’t have time for much so that wipes out a few days.

Monday and Tuesday I spent cleaning out the weeds and crap out of all of my flower beds and yes there is a lot….lol.  When I moved into this house there was small rocks in a few of the flower beds but I really don’t care for them.  I had removed them and replaced it with red mulch.  But I ran out in one area and put the rocks there until I got more mulch.  Well I finally got more mulch…2 years later…lol…and decided it was time to get rid of the rocks.   So I gathered up 12 big pails of rocks and moved them to under the large tree…(another project I started…lol) and replaced them with the mulch….looks much better.  Yes I should have taken pictures…next time I will.

After I got the rocks moved I decided it was time to start trying to remove all the wandering grape from my trees.  So after spending a good 3 hours wrestling with those grabby buggers I decided it was time to quit….still have 2 1/2 trees to do and some in the old green house but that will have to wait for another nice day.

So with all this being said I’m off now to have a nice hot bath and head to bed.  Gotta go to work again in the morning for a health and safety meeting.

Take care all!!!!

I can already tell you today is not going to be a good day.  I was awake at 3:00 am which is even worse than the last 3 days which I woke up at 4 or 4:30…have no idea why…I haven’t been napping which is usually when I can’t sleep at night.  And now I have to go to work tonight. So I”m going to try and nap today but not till after lunch.  Which is why I”m writing now.

Yesterday I was so tired I didn’t write everything down so a couple of things I”m going to add here.  The first being the little cuties I found in my flower bed yesterday.  I’ve always been a country girl and yes my brother raised rabbits when I was little.  That being said I never realized that your every day rabbits and jack rabbits do look a little different.  How you ask?  Well let me tell you they have stubby little ears compared to their popular long eared friends.  I thought I had only one living there and then after my son just had to check them out we realized there were actually 4 of them living under there.  Check them out in the two photos below.

Baby Bunny


So I got up this morning to check on them cause even though I really want them gone and was planning on using the live traps I bought last year to get rid of the 500 chipmunks I had around here….they are still adorable but they were all gone.  Guess they got tired of Jason and I constantly petting them.  And for the record, these little guys did not like carrots.  I”m sure they will be back when my garden starts to grow…lol

So I’m off now to post some pictures of my family and yes maybe even my critters.

Have a great day!!

April 18, 2013

Well I think the early mornings are getting to me.  It’s only 8:45 pm and already I can’t keep my eyes open.   So I’m going to cut this very short today and will fill you in tomorrow….just didn’t want to miss a day.

But I will say I did my squat challenge and I’ve got 4 baby jack rabbits living in my flower beds under my flowers….chipmunks last year…jackrabbits this year….what next skunks next year?…lol.

Night all,

I know I’m writing this on the 18th but in my defense I was way tooo busy yesterday and when I finally did stop I realized I still had my squat challenge to do.  Got that done and went to bed..I was pooped.

I did ok with the squat challenge had to stop 2 times but in my defense I did go for a 1 mile bike ride with my son when he got done school so I was already using those muscles doing something I hadn’t done in a very long time.

It’s about 2 miles to get to work and that is my goal.  I want to be able to ride my bike to work everyday that it is nice enough out.  I know it doesn’t seem that far but there is a quite large hill on my way there and the way back so I want to make sure I’m able to do it.  Lord knows I need the exercise…lol.

We went to see G. I. Joe last night as well and it’s pretty good but not the best I’ve seen in a long time.  But it did give me an idea for something else here.  Movie/TV show reviews.

Well that’s all for now.  Take care and hope to see you again later today.

Well it’s early afternoon and I’ve got all my housework done so now I get to play.  I finally finished the review of how to code a word press site so I think that is what I’m going to do.  I have the images already, it’s actually a regular web set that I made years ago and I still love it and thought it would look great on this site.  Drop me a line and let me know what you think.  I’d love to hear from you.

So I’m off now to work on this…if I don’t get back here today you will know what I am up to.

Well this is a new theme but not the one I was hoping to create.  For some reason the changes I was making were not going to the theme so I’m thinking this one will do for now….hopefully I can come up with something later.

Well Gotta go eat and feed the critters….maybe after I’ll add some pics of my critters and my family.
