Well this is odd:

I welcomed the rain the other day.

You see, when there is lack of anything exciting to talk about ... weather is a good ground breaker.

There, broken ground.... full of water. That subject is well, done.

Yes, comedy ... with me it's semi sort of. Bursts of humour, and then NOTHING .. for a long time. I guess I have been saving myself. I think.

I though it was better to leave the month on a high note, rather than no note at all. All going well, today there wouldn't have been a note either, because I was supposed to be at work. But I am not. Not that I do not wish to be at work .. but I am wishing to be better first, work second. That will happen in another two weeks. I will be better. I BELIEVE.

In other great thoughts and adventures. I think I talked about instagra.m a while back .. probably my last post .. since I don't have that many to pick from! ANYWAYS .. I love that app .. it is the funnest thing in the world to me right now .. since all my words with friends have sort of stopped playing .. I am going to have to go back to random opponents ... at least that way ... there is no sadness when I surpass their score. It sometimes isn't about the words, but the strategy, since I am not a word whore, but a thinker about possible moves before they happen. So yes, instagramming ... it's the next best thing to be being a great photographer, without having the great skills. Of course there is a little perspective finding .. but how I love it! Probably because it is simple in all reality ... but then, why complicate things .. because you know .. that just gets complicated then!

Little dog isn't little. He's a big dog. Probably should post a picture, again .. they are all on my phone. Sorry. Oops. I have to stop and think how old he is ... 4 1/2 months. He's a little talker backer right now, and loves the couch. Except he isn't allowed on the couch .. and in fact .. I think it's darn right hilarious that he throws his body deep into the aging leather couch, and I scoop him off, the whole time he is telling me his teenage dog stories, until I put the baby gate on the couch, then that stops him, and he curls up in his pink towel laden basket. He's learning his place ... GIRLS rule. .. take that you black and white seeing lovely soft crazy guy !!

My girlie girl for real has taken to braiding her hair. Sometimes. WE have progress, because next year .. it's learner licence central for her .. so eventually we have to grow up !!

The PORCH is slowly progressing. Working man continues to work hard. Very hard. What a guy, huge admiration for his dedication. The MEN on the street don't like him anymore. And all wives have been discouraged from talking to him. It's a street run LOVE OUT fest for the deck/porch building man. Little did we know this when we first thought of the project. I say WE, like I had any input ... yea.

The boy and his band had a music video filmed yesterday. Sounds like it was crazy. Crazy fun. A crazy amount of waiting for things to happen for the crew that went to help out. Crazy exciting that christmas craziness couldn't even bring... even when they were 4 year old and believed in the man in the great red suit. Hopefully this will bring about a couple more people knowing about this little band. I say little as in they are not so little .. but little in a way, where they have great room to grow. I think they really have room to grow ... they haven't been putting out any new music very recently .. but once they come up with an idea, they ideas just flow, like a river after a rainstorm. Fingers crossed for this crazy bunch.

In things other than great ideas, and time that passes me by ... I am amazed by having as much time off as I have had, and have accomplished completely nothing .. absolutely nothing. One would think I could read a book, or 49 with the amount of time I have had off. Wasn't to happen. I spent a great deal of time just doing things for 34 minutes at a time or less, and watched a dog. I spent a lot of time driving, a great huge lot of time driving, so much so ... i should have kept a record ... but would have probably of lost it .. just like my receipt for my bra that I bought last week, and the nasty ELDERLY cashier lady said I couldn't even exchange it without a receipt ... fortunately for me ... the regular bra lady attendant realized the situation, wrote on a piece of paper, I walked to the otherside of the cash desk, and avoided Granny Nasty Bra, and purchased a new bra ... in fact I am wearing it right now.

I coloured my hair .. it's dark again .. for a couple of days .. and to keep things exciting .. I missed a spot. I think it's time for a chop-o-rama so that way the lighter ends wont look so neglected. I will fit that into my busy week of non working. I SWEARRRRR... this week ... I am sitting .. and doing nothing .. wait. Cant. How odd. BUT .. am happy to say that the hideous little foot is so so so so close to being completed mended it isn't funny .. I'm in the home stretch .. and am feeling so much so ... that I really do not want to get the prescription filled that will open up my blood vessels and ... oooopss ... probably drop my blood pressure so I crash into cars and fall down stairs ... just in time to break a bone .... yes... I am thinking about this carefully.

I will start putting my quarters away to buy that new washer ... I'm going to need one ... well ... a newer better working one that I currently own. I am unsure what to do ... but a washer and dryer together ... (front loader), so that way I will have added working space in the laundry room .. or just wait and buy a front load washer, and eventually the dryer .. at this rate I will never have a set that matches .. despite that the current machines look like they match now. It wouldn't be a big deal if they were locked away in the basement, or in a closet, or in someone's bedroom .. but in this massive little abode ... we see them right away in this space ... I will wait .. for the moment .. especially since I have seen my master.card bill for next month already ... and this months wasn't pretty either !

Well ... must move onto the next form of excitement of the day .. will go and chat with the silent one that does not speak .. except to his dog, who is currently locked in his getting smaller by the minute dog house having a nap ... he needed some down time, and sometimes .. just to give him that time to re-coup is what he needs.

I need alcohol. But that's a whole other story ... for another month!!

A little more than a day

I dislike the numerical value of this day.

The weather this morning is similar to the temperatures from eleven years ago... except that my little boy was in Grade One, and my princess doll, well she was just busy being a princess doll. Again... time flies when one is off doing things that consume each and every day.

I remember walking home with someone and wondering if I should leave my child at school ... this far away from the horrors that had taken place hours earlier ... but not knowing what was going to occur in the remaining hours, it was an odd feeling.

My brother in law was in Chicago on business, and had to make his way home by way of land travel, he had been at an airport waiting to board a plane.

What a horrible unfolding of events ... again .. history in the making, and on many levels impacted how we conduct our everyday lives.

In more things numerical:

My washing machine is broken, .... so I called a repairman .. hopefully by the end of the day I will be washing (!!!) clothes, and not shoppng for a new machine.

I'm still looking for a bike to ride .. I have one ... BUT .. it is the only mode of rolling transportation that the chicklets have access to ... so I know the second I use my windtrainer ... and get it all set up to my likings and happiness ... something will happen, someone will need the bike ... and there you have it operation windtraining will be dismantled... I just know stuff ...

Egg time. Gonna make me some eggs. With some cheese. Feta actually, with tomatoes. I would add some bacon bits, but I do not have any. I need to go condiment shopping. AS well as go get my tire that keeps losing air sorted out. AND buy a new bra. I need a new bra... since I am not going to resew my underwires back into my other ones, since I have already done it ... twice.

I have already packed my green waste container ... how amazing of me ... the time spent standing on the foot ... utilized to fill my green waste container with sticks and other assorted yard materials.

The bear found the husbandman last night ... the little doggy character was fierce in his barking, but also stood strong, with the barking. Way to go little four month old doggykins. The little guys fur is absolutely incredibly soft ... kinda cool ... like a live version of a stuffed animal .. except this one has the habit of biting .. hard & often. He will outgrow it .. much to the DEATH of his stuffed DO -DO birds that we have given him .. that squeak .. a lot ... until he destroys the squeaks in them .. however .. they also seem to make him happy .. so who cares... he's biting the DO-DO birds .. and not me ...

Well should move on ... to egg making and other related invents of the morning routine ...

Shee - oot

I've got to take off today and do some real working. Kind of fake - real working. GAWD Lowd above I hope I survive.

I am not prepared, not I am interested in being prepared ... I am just willing to go, do my thing .. meet the peeps, hand out papers, give them an overview, exchange information ... all that big overwhelming stuffs and such ... and much more ... I am glad for those that have been coming to the group for a while ... they know the routine .. they just like seeing and chatting .. and doing whatever comes their way ... I have some new members .. they are going to proove to be challenging ... not sure how I am going to fix this ... I might have a room full today .. or not .. all the same .. I know I have to make big efforts to get the bugs sorted out .. and quickly !!

In other things ... well .. that can all wait ... AND that's why they call it .. a cliffhanger !

These guys perform

Despite quite possibly living the absolute shittiest of times in my life the past number of months, with June, July and August being the low of the lows, wracked with almost uncomprehensible pain, which I am not sure why I don't have a drinking problem by now .. it interestingly has been one of the most exciting times of my life. How so ...

Well .. we have a dog ... a little dog that might grow to be a big dog .. if we are lucky ... but sharing the experience with the kids has been a true parental adventure in itself ... knowing that my every move and action raising this guy is also teaching these young adults how to possibly attempt raising a pup in the future .. I am probably more than glad that the Dog. Whisper has been recorded, and I have watched endless episodes of how my hot dog guy handles himself ... and am teaching myself how to handle our very own mr. handful. Almost ... I'm in training as much as mr mighty ears is in training.

The other true adventure has been watching the boy and his band grow. Last year they recorded their album and  played at a lot of festivals, and around locally, which was fun to watch. This year they released their album, have played at countless night scenes in the big city, have done some extra work just playing because they were asked, for nothing, in blazing heat. They have managed to score a $20,000.00 prize to make a music video .. and in my opinion .. they should take that cash (not that they can, after all .. it's for the VIDEO..) and invest a little whack more of time and come up with some new songs to make another complete album .. as they already have 4 unrecorded songs still .. The music industry is really not a glamorous one ... you crawl around back alleys .. carry around hundreds of pounds of equipment from home to location, from location to home, set it all up, take it all down, have to pay incredulous prices for parking .. and in realily .. get paid nothing from the place that you were asked to play at .. all for the chance to be heard, and be seen, and for someone willing to hear your lifes work and craft. Mind you for today .. the boy is happy .. he got a pair of free jeans out of the deal, for the video shoot .. and someone actually helped fit them to him .. so he thought that was good. He did admit that he was embarressed to be known as a musician at the school, because he claims that is his outside life. He has learned the lessons of knowing who is friends are, and who might be followers trying to invade his life, and sometimes your lifes work doesn't come back in all the riches that you wish it to be .. it is still a long road to tow .. and those that have made it, are truly fortunate ... meanwhile .. we will just see if he can truly make it to graduation ...

In other things equally incredulous the girlie girl lovely one has done her leaps and bounds worth of growth. If a single flower may have blossomed, then she is a garden of full on loveliness ... EXCEPT for her single friend .. that she did not see all summer .. and now has reconnected with. ICK. Hopefully that will all just go away ...

In other things ... well .. have managed to not take a ton a pictures, nor be extra good at the ones I have gotten .. but I have managed to practice .. just a titch .. and hopefully I will continute to take perfect aim in the months to come,... the photo group starts up again next week, ... and despite my betterment of thinking thought that I would have zen zillion hours to capture my "change of state" request for photos ... less than a week till the start up .. and I am minus even 2 photos ... I could maybe show them the photos of myself falling apart .. and then picking myself back-up again ... now there's an idea.

In stil other things .. it's the husbandmans birthday tomorrow .. he want's nothing .. of course, as usual .. the only thing I wish I could buy him is time, or a clone, neither of which I am able to do .. he refuses any kind of funness or foodness or kindness or material items to wish him well with .. he wants nothing. Well, fortuantely .. I will good for that one ... I think if I could offer him one thing .. it's a long life for his dog .. which I think is the only thing he wishes for right now ...

However .. I will fool him .. I am off to the sewing store .. to buy thread and patch materials .. to fix his favourite shorts .. I am such a queen of a wife !!!! .. now to go fetch the dog off the couch .. which is still the husbandmans bed .. should have a little common courtesy !!
