Please Just Try To Keep Up

It's been too long since I've updated that
I now require you all to follow me
into the world of randomness.

Had a dream last night that I had overslept
and was going to be late for my book signing.
Because, apparently, I am an author.

Also in this dream, I had termites in my hair.
Big fat white termites.
They looked like squishy Tic Tacs.

But that's neither here nor there.

When Brian went to leave this morning for work,
he called me into the garage.
It was raining in there.

A hose had burst in the water heater
and the force of the water made a big ol hole
in the ceiling and soaked everything.

 Don't you just love a pretty picture?

Everything in the attic is pretty wet
and it soaked through the wall
so the carpet in the guest bedroom is wet.

Before I allowed Brian to shut off the water
I jumped into a cold 2 minute shower
to wash the termites out of my hair.
Let's move on.

Brian and I have put ourselves
on a pretty strict budget.

We are in the process of getting ready to house hunt.
And moving is EXPENSIVE.

We are a cash only household now.
Except for using the debit card to pay bills online.
Using only cash is scary.
But it is working.

I don't go out as often as I used to.
I make one trip to the grocery once a week.
That's about it.
It's amazing what you can save
if you never leave the house.

And since we are cash only,
I can't shop on line.
Unless I get one of these on my computer.

My sister and brother-in-law came
for a short visit last weekend.
Again, I took ZERO pictures
but they look like this.

My brother in law is quite handsome.
And smart.
And handsome, did I mention that?

My sweet daughter, Kate,
took me out for a Mother's Day lunch
last week and brought me these.

Aren't they beautiful?
Just like her.

Have a Great Week!!

Totally Random

This post is all over the place.
I don't like to post unless I have something interesting to say.
And I have nothing.

The babies have all hatched and are running amok in the yard.
Baby quail are just the sweetest things ever.
So far we only have one family.

I know these are terrible pictures but they are hard to get close to.
Mom, Dad, and nine babies.

All the birds are loving the quail block Brian put on the back wall.
I think we're going to add another one this weekend.

I just finished planting more flowers,
mowing the yard,
organizing the garage
and baking banana bread
and it's not even 9:00 am.

More random junk:

I finally went and got all my hairs chopped off.
It's a summer ritual.

The following pics were taken with my iPhone
and are not good but I promised pics.

It's choppy and messy and easy.
I like it.

I've also had some of my Weight Watcher Bloggers
ask for pictures.
This is not fun for me.
Partly because I don't like pictures of myself
and partly because I don't like my hips.

Here's a picture of me last September
at BlogSugar with Meg.

Yikes, right?
Here's what I looked like last week before I chopped off my hairs.
-26 lbs lighter.

I think that's about all I've got.
But I did want to share one last picture
that my friend posted on Facebook.
I thought it was sooo funny.

Have a great weekend!!
