Big Time Slacker

Yes that’s me Big Time Slacker. Don’t really have any excuse just didn’t fit it into my not so busy schedule. 

To bring you up to date on my not so busy life:  The job front is still looking bleak. We still don’t have a floor planner for our campers.  I go in once a week to open the mail, pay some bills and clean up after my boys.  We’ve applied to several banks still not luck on a bank taking our company on!  As I told most of you I want to retire next year, but if it keeps going the way it is I may retire this year only without social security.  I have a 401K but don’t want to dip into it as the stock market already has!!Hopefully I can draw low earnings or unemployment for a year??? Boy that’s wishing huh?

I’ve just about got all my spring cleaning done, I know its only February, but when spring comes I will be outside working on my flower beds and yard.  The weather has been hard on the landscape this winter, but I love the challenge of putting it back into shape. This is a picture of our last snow fall.DSCN2228 When we got this snow our neighbors Kentucky got ice and so many homes were with out power for several weeks and then last week we had this bad wind storm and again all of us were without power for a while. We were lucky we didn’t loose power.  However I did loose the tire covers on my camper still can’t find them!  LOL

My riding mower this past summer was using oil, not leaking but seems like I had to add oil every week.  So hubby and I loaded it up and took it to the dealer we purchased it from.  I thought I had owned it for about 5 or 6 years and the dealer pulled my card and I purchased it in 1998!!! Wow I could not believe that I’ve had that mower for 11 years!  Not bad then since this is the first time I’ve had it in the shop.  So I told the repairman to check everything out to just make sure I would be ready for the first grass cutting.  Yes I get excited cutting grass, in addition to the work of it, I love to sit on my porch and look at the results when I’m done.

Yes I am soooooooooo ready for spring and summer.  This has been a long winter and so cold.  I have a new humming bird feeder I got for my birthday and I can’t wait to put it up and watch those little guys feed from it.  I also feed the other birds all year long.  Hayden enjoys seeing the birds feed so needless to say they are eating good this winter.

Yesterday hubby, youngest daughter and I went shopping.  We all had a great time. She helped me pick out new linens for my bed and it was so much fun seeing her finding everything I need to put it all together.  This morning I actually put it all together and it turned out great or so I think. What do you think?  As you can see blues and yellows are my favorite colors.DSCN2232 I know it looks old fashion but I just like the simple looking things.  My bedroom suite is from the early 50’s, a inheritance from one of our Aunt and Uncle who we took care of until they passed away several years ago.  One day I will write about that experience.

Ok, I will not bore you any longer and I want to wish you all a Happy Valentine’s Day and hope you all had a great one.

One more thing I wrote this blog on windows live writer and if I get it over to my other site I will be so happy and Jane will be proud of me. LOL

Until Later,
