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!!!!

Joined Welcoming


If you have been following along with my ramblings you will know that I have re-joined the Garden of Friendship  Being a member in this group means that you have to be on at least one committee.  I decided to join the welcoming committee.  Figured what the heck why not.  I’m planning on joining the graphics committee in the future however it’s been a long time since I even opened my psp so I figured I’d better get some practice in using it.

I just signed up to be a member of the Tutorials group to try and get a bit of a refresher.  If you are interested in more information about the Tutorials group please see the section of my site for this or goto the main GOF site.

Below is two images that I’m going to be using when signing guestbooks/emails welcoming members.  I know they are not the greatest but I was kind of using that as a bit of a refresher to see how much I actually remembered…lol.



Not my best work but not too bad considering it’s probably been at least 3 or 4 years since I’ve actually created something with psp.

April 19, 2013

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!!

Garden of Friendship

Well I’ve officially been welcomed back into the Garden of Friendship.  I didn’t realize until now now loved these wonderful people make a person feel.  It’s because of this that I’ve decided to have a section of my site just about this amazing group.
