The five and dime?

The five and dime.
This is a slightly askew square. The diagonal stitching made the fabric stretch. The colors were chosen randomly from the threads Lisa gifted me on her visit. No color is duplicated. Getting three quarters of the way done, I noticed that it looked like a dime store rug. You know the ones. K~

i'm in search of a group of lions

What ever happened to natural selection for humans??
I get so weary of being weary, feeling of general malaise, having a tummy ache, being sleepy, having a head ache, being itchy......should i go on.....
so i am going to go to Africa (again) this time, in search of a group of lions and see if I can kick this natural selection into gear.
if i were an "animal", i would have been weeded out a looooonnngg time ago. K~

Love the art on this show. Super round and cute! The show is good too. LOVE Quack the blue duck with the sailor hat.

Think i had a reaction to my PT tape on my back last night. had to leave work early. Did get to clean and feed the cormorant, the many ducks to get to the one goose on my list, a soft shell turtle and some pigeons. oh and helped with the possem, made turtle food and greens, did garbages in the exam room, did some laundry, dishes, and wiped the counter. Oh, now it is just sounding like home.....
Anyway... I am home today. I need to catch up on some house work and paperwork. K~

Here i am..... down here.

Well this is where I have been the past 2 weeks. I am under there somewhere. I have been busy with 7th grade homework and readings, 5th grade activities and homework, and 2nd grade reading and homework.
I have also started PT for my shoulders and arms finally after 20+ years of pain and discomfort.
between house wiving, zoo keeping, tutoring, stretching, and farming, well i am spent! K~

very sad today

We went to the funeral of a long time friend.
He died on the 4th of September.
He was my big ol DNR pal and a sweet sweet soul.
He will now rest in peace away from all his pain.
Bye my Harley buddy! K~

The Minnesota State Fair

Through the eyes of the Walshes.
Yes D had to dress up as Freddy the Flathead Catfish and ride the DNR truck driven by yours truly. S road on the back with him as Rick handed out FIN bobbers to the fair going mass. C sat on the Smokey the Bear float (who is 65 this year by the way). Later we stopped off at the butterfly house! Kind of neat.
School today. Trying to keep up. I'm tired, but all went well today.

to do list

It's Sunday morning and I am sitting here in my nest reflecting on the week that was and the week that is coming up. Today I will try to bulk cook for September. I am trying to get a jump on organizing.

Food I am going to make and freeze:
Chicken breasts
hamburger ground and pattied
other stuff.

I am working on a white board for the children's homework assignments and activities

Keeping up with clothes washing and sorting

Need to finish my school shopping ... just a few more things.

But first I have coffee and farm!

Well I am again rendered speechless. After a 4 hour, yes I said 4 hour welcome to 7th grade event at Ramsey Jr. High School, I am, well, just astounded. I can not believe what a year this will be. Not much else to say. Still stunned this morning. K~
