Old Man Winter has decided to make an unexpected appearance in the northeast this week.
Ok, maybe not so unexpected (in fact late), but still we weren't prepared. I never got the plastic up on the windows, so guess what I'll be doing later this afternoon.....It was 3 degrees this a.m.! Brrrrrr..........
I have been soooo distracted this week. It's been hard to get down to business.
Between Christmas stuff and Little Man being in the house (and now back out- story later...) well, it boggles the mind.
Ok, I must confess........there's more taking up my time these days....
Read all about it here!
It's Friday, a time to air all my useless thoughts and random gossip. In blogging terms, Friday Fragments.
If you haven't tried Friday Fragments, head on over to Mrs. 444's place & check it out! What a way to get a load off!
I share all the dirt with my blogging friends during Virtual Girls Night Out.
So here we go:
What "itis" ails you?
Ron and I were watching something on TV. I didn't think he was paying attention, as he had just walked into the room.
I said, "The poor guy has hepititis on top of everything else."
Ron said, "I thought they said Menangitis."
Yikes! Hepititis,Menangitis, Bursitis...........
I just wondered, what "itis" ails you?
Here are a few I made up:
"A$$"-itis:Those who are incapable of getting off their a$$ and getting a life.
"best"-itis: Those who are afflicted with the annoying habit of thinking they are the bestest of the best.
"dork"-itis:Those dorks who don't even know it!
"ignorant"-itis: Those who are ignorant as to how their crazy, rude and distruptive behavior affects others- Now & Forever.
If you feel offended by any of these, you may have an "itis"
Get a life.
New use for an out of season item?
When the weather person starts predicting storms here, we stock up on essentials! I found a new temporary fridge for any overflow.
I use my outdoor grill! Works great for bread and stuff that you don't mind freezing.
I don't know about you suburbia folk, but us country folk don't store our grill away for the winter. Ya never know when Billy Bob is going to shoot a huge buck out the bathroom window while taking care of business.
"Yum, yum, venison steaks for dinner."
Ok, don't you city folk go crying about poor Bambi. I really don't like venison all that much.
But I do love a good hunk of bar-b-qued beef in the middle of winter.
Time waster or brain builder?
I have a new addiction, which is stealing every available moment of my time. I got an updated Blackberry and with it, the game Word Mole. I can't stop playing, and my daughter and son are fighting me for the phone to play it as well! Talk about expanding the vocabulary!
I am not a big fan of games, really. But, the gaming bug bit! I've always been a sucker for word searches and other word puzzles.
And, as I mentioned, Little Man is out again.....
Baby's daddy and momma are not getting along (surprise), and Daddy has a few "itis" related issues going on. Grandma and Grandpa will probably get him Sunday for my nephews birthday.
Check out this pic!
It's a bit fuzzy as it's a pic of a pic...but this was our back yard when we moved in- 10 years ago this past April. We had the land cleared for the house. It was previously woods. If you look to the right, you will see a pile of branches and sticks. We had piles on both sides of the yard that were so high, we couldn't see above them.
We spent that whole summer burning branches.
And finally...Christmas is in the air!
A pic of my wall above the coal stove:
Everyone have a Happy Holiday!
We'll see who makes it next Friday!
Extra! Extra! Read all about it!
