Y’all know I am an avid reader. I love to read and am an admitted addict. Recently I have had the opportunity to share my love of reading with a local literacy group who helps adults that cannot read or have limited reading skills. Even though by nature I am definitely not a people person, I am enjoying sharing my love of words to a certain couple of individuals who struggle with an ability a lot of us take for granted. And, the best part, I can do it while I am working! even better :)
In all honesty, my job is pretty cool. I have my own huge, private office (altho I may have to share it one day with another part-timer but not anytime soon). I like everybody I work with, 2 co-workers, 1 boss. My boss rocks. She is totally cool, doesnt freak out or put demands. She actually says “Thank you” and that she “appreciates” the work getting done……even though it is my job to do said work. My boss is totally flexible and does not play games of any sort, she is100% honest and up front, no guessing or head games. I realize just how fortunate I am to have had this position landed in my lap like it did.
Wee One (AKA Hamster) has proven to have excellent riding skills. He will literally spend all day long in the saddle without complaints……well, except for last weekend when he rode Scooter around for an hour bareback while WO wearing shorts. He was not happy about his hairy, itchy legs! haha, it’s that time of the year. All the horses have nearly lost all of their winter hair. With constant brushing and trimming their summer coats are starting to glisten.
WO’s Sea Monkeys are growing fast-they are kinda cool. Even I had some as a kid. I ordered mine from the back of a Godzilla comic book when I was in the 3rd grade. I bought WO’s Sea Monkey Kit for $5 at Wal-mart and put them in his Easter basket.
I think our praying mantis’s egg pods were duds. They havent hatched despite our careful care. I plan on contacting the company for a replacement or refund. I did charge it to my Capitol One mastercard, they are awesome about getting merchandise refunded or replaced.
Wee One’s baby chicks, all 13 of them, are thriving. Hubs gathered up the materials so BIL W can build their coop and pen. Right now they are living in the baby chick hutch, which is nice and roomy for them as well as warm and dry. It has a light and good ventilation but it needs cleaned and the cedar bedding replaced every few days which I am getting tired of doing. WO does a good job of feeding and watering them twice a day but he is too small to get the hutch cleaned, so that is up to me. I am not a chicken fan. One of the white ones is mean and pecks at me.
It has been raining since Friday. Louis needs to be ridden. He and I are getting along quite well but he does need some tuning up. I do not like the fact that I havent been able to ride him since thursday. I cannot even do any type of ground work because of the pouring down rain. I need some sunshine!!
We have already had to mow our lawn 3X this springtime. Everything is green and fresh outdoors. I am happy winter is over.
Our $1200 flat screen TV caught on fire 2 weeks ago. WO and I were home alone one evening. Hubs and Bubba were at a baseball game. I was packing for an out of town work trip, WO was in the living room drawing and watching the NICK channel. I walked thru the living room to get something out of the laundry room and smelled something ‘off‘. I just thought it was WO who had his Easter basket out sampling his candy. I continued on into my bedroom and was folding clothes when WO runs into my bedroom and says” call 911, the TV is smoking and making a scary noise! I’ll get the fire extinguisher and wait by the front door!” I run into the living room, see the screen is black but sound is still coming, also I hear a horrible electrical static coming from the back of the TV where black smoke is starting to billow out. Needless to say, I unplugged the TV and unhooked everything. I knew BIL W just got home from work so I called him and he rushed over (he lives at the end of our road sorta).BIL W took care of the rest. Grrrrrrr that TV was not even 2 years old!
People-do NOT buy TV’s from Sears. The last TWO we bought from there did not last past 3 years. Just a bit of advice from a burned customer.
