I’ve Been Kind of Busy

March 16, 2011

And I’ve been having these little anxiety attacks.  Spending money on home improvement and doing the taxes hasn’t helped any.  Last week I spent the afternoon entering figures and hollering  at Sweetums to bring me stuff.  See.  That’s how we do it.  He spends weeks hollering at me to do the taxes.  I spends weeks coming up with all kinds of excuses.  Then, when one day, I pop in the CD and get to work.  I crunch the numbers and Sweetums runs around getting the information I need.  Now.  It seems to me that I said ‘holler’ too much.   We don’t fight or even argue much.  It’s all part of a big game we play.  We really do get along quite well considering how independent we are.  OK.  Wait a minute.  How did I get here?  Anyway, after spending a few hours on the taxes, I had to stop.  The numbers were not coming up like I thought they should.  I shut it all down and walked away for a few days.  Saturday, it came to me.  I had forgotten to check something.  How the h**l did I manage to do that?  By just walking away for a few days, I saved us about a thousand dollars.  I was so happy.  And so was Sweetums.

I remembered to take my little camera when we went for our walk on Saturday.  After all the rain on Friday, the tide was really high.  This was the only pier under water at that time, but you could where the water had at least splashed over the others enough to leave debris, including a duck decoy.

New Camera

December 30, 2009

My daughter bought my son and me a small digital camera.  I’ve been wanting one to carry when I am walking and Win’s is old.  It’s something I wouldn’t buy for myself because I all ready have a good digital, but this new one certainly is handy.  I took it with me yesterday.  It takes decent pictures. 

This is the pier that my neighbor lets me enjoy.   I didn’t sit there today.  It was too cold and windy.  I didn’t relish the possibility of going in the river.  Can you see how high the tide is?

Jenn came down yesterday with a load of firewood for Doug.  She brought enough for two or three years.  Doug was happy as can be.

Here’s my goofy Gus.  He loves his walk.  If it weren’t for him, we probably wouldn’t walk nearly as much as we do.

Flo loves to curl up on my sweaters.

I’ve been looking for my camera case pattern, but I can’t find it anywhere.  Win has all ready asked for a case.  He wants red.  I have a nice metallic knit and some brown suede for the inside.   I haven’t decided on mine yet.  I have lots of pieces I can use.
