Now, I am off to the dump. Gotta love rural living. The dump run...

When I was a kid we used to love the dump run.

We usually brought back more stuff than we left!

I remember once the people next door took a nearly new ten speed to the dump because the gears were messed up, my stepfather brought it home and fixed it, you know the rest!

Reminds me of when I was a kid. My dad would borrow a friend's truck and haul stuff off to the dump. My little brother and I would ride along, and the entire way there we would sing (to the tune of the lone ranger theme), "to the dump, to the dump, to the dump dump dump..."


...and I'm still sitting here procrastinating.

I used to love it when Dad would take us to the dump as little kids. A fascinating place!

I'm planting the flats of greenhouse stuff I bought. Flowers, veggies, along with some herb seeds.

Eclairs are so magical. There is nothing they can't cure.

Word from the Mothership is that this is a "Do Nothing Saturday."

I've decided to move the dinner to Monday night. I still feel crappy.

Hope you feel better soon, Andy. Sorry the eclairs didn't work their magic.

I interrupted the planting to start getting ready for a graduation party. Heh. Glad I looked at the invite again, as it's TOMORROW. Oops.

Good call. I recommend some tea and brandy. If nothing else you'll forget how awful you feel!

Smart move. If you are coming down with something, you certainly don't want to pass it on. Get some rest and pamper yourself for a change. Just for you.

I just had to change the batteries AGAIN on my mouse. I think I am on this computer too much.

I need to go downstairs and check on my mail.

My daughter asked me to embroider her some scarves with matching doilies for her bedroom. So I ordered them today. I have been asking her to take a look at the ones I was looking at. So today I just ordered what I wanted to do. If she doesn't like what I chose, then I will give it to the church for the fair in the fall. And she will get nothing. They just finised doing over her bedroom. Even down to sanding the floors and refinishing them. I have been working on a lapghan for my granddaughter. But it is getting heavy and too warm to hold in my lap at this time of year. So I am going back to doing something light and easy. And I can take it with me when I have a doctors appointment.

I know what I want for Christmas coming. I want a floor stand for my embroidery. That way I will have both hands free for passing the needle back and forth with both hands. The one I want is only thirty-five dollars. I will probably end up buying it myself because I am too impatient to wait that long.
