While the Lines were down and What a Week...

While the Lines Are Down

April 29, 2011 3:04pm
Please don’t worry, I’m still here. A few nights ago we had a really bad storm, and our phone lines have been fuzzy sense. So that means our internet is down also. I would go to the library but that would only give me a limited time and I have so much to share. So I shall type in my Word Document and tell you what is going on then post it as soon as daddy runs some new phone lines under the house!
 So where to begin?!? Well…
I had a good Easter. We (momma, daddy, little sister and I) went to my Grandparents, mommas, momma and daddy, and met up with my older sister her husband and little girl. We had dinner, and ate way too much candy and talked!
 It was a good day. I missed the sunrise service at the park at six thirty Easter Morning. I was out at my fiancé’s parent’s house watching movies and chatting till very late. But next year I do plan to go.
 Then after dinner at Grandmas I went over to my darlings’ house to give him the Easter basket she made him I stayed and went out to eat with his little sister who just got her license and a new car. It was nice to talk to her. Then I stayed and watched movies then went home.
 The following days I have been waiting for my boss to call me and let me know when I can start working this year. I’ll be working at the golf course aging this year. But I asked if I could cook only this year so I could get tips to put back to pay for the wedding and my “new car” (My parents asked if I wanted to sell my “boat” and get a “new” car put in my name. I said YES!!) And my boss said he could work it out!
 So I’m just waiting for his call/text and for the weather to break.
It’s been storming almost every day and night. It’s nice that God providing water for us and feeding His creation, but I think we could use some dry days now. ;)
 Sense it’s been so wet outside I’ve been trying to keep myself busy inside. So I’ve been spinning my Angora Fiber and so far I have 1.4 oz’s of yarn. And still two plastic bags full of fiber to go! I have also been painting. I just got more into acrylic painting and I have to say I like it. It doesn’t run as much as Water Color and is just so much more vibrant in color!  And I’ve been reading. I’m almost done with my book A Company of Swans. By: Eva Ibbotson. It’s very good. Next will be the book, Beastly. By: Alex Flinn. That one was just turned into a movie. It’s like a modern day telling of Beauty and the Beast, That we must look at the beauty within ourselves to really see how beautiful this world is. I think it’s a very good lesson for today’s generation to learn.
 After that book maybe the novel I bought, Ireland. By: Frank Delaney or one I ordered that is a movie now, Water for Elephants. I can’t remember the author of that one. But I have a lot of reading to do this summer.
 I’m also still working on my hope chest afghani.
Now lets see. What will I be doing on the days to come?!
Well, tomorrow I am going to a near by town to go see my darling after his classes and then have dinner with him and his family. Then I might go shopping with my friend in a neat little Liberal town not far from here. I say Liberal town to be nice. Growing up my Grandpa (dad’s dad) used to call it Hippie town because this town is very colorful and full of ‘different’ people. It’s because the College in this town is an Art centered Liberal college. I thought about taking a few art classes there. I still might. Not live there!! NO! But take some classes, yes!
 Well that seems to be it for now, So I shall write again soon.
With Love, Prayers and Blessings.

 What a Week!!

Oh goodness. It's nice to have internet again. I can check my bank accounts again, and check e-mail and see what all of my friends have been up to on facebook.
 But it's also nice to blog again. I've been so longing to blog and just share my life with you dear reader.
So what has been going on. Well I got to see my Darling Saturday and got some things at Barns and Nobel. I got a kit for a Pin Hole Camera. That should be fun. I can't wait to get some film and take pictures and see how they turn out.
 I also have a graduation to go to this weekend. My darlings sister (she is my age) is graduating from college, and I am going out to dinner with the family. Darlings grandparents are coming up and want to take everyone out to dinner. I have not seen them sense last May, and they have not seen my ring yet so this should be fun.
 Today is Tuesday so today my dear Friend and Her sister, and me and my sister are to get together! I can't wait. But the dilemma is, to whom's house do we go? Hemmmmm..... That is the question!
 But which ever way we shall go We shall have fun and great fellowship.
But now to some sad news.
 Yesterday My little sisters most beautiful hen died. Her name was Bustle's and she was very pretty. She has not been well for a while. Her feet were getting bad and she was just slowing down. She was found in the corner of the cope. But also a few weeks ago, we had another hen go missing. Her name was Hero. She was named such because as a chick, she survived all the killings of her brothers and sister. It was a possum that got all of them but she lived. Well when she went missing we knew something got her. But we could not find a body. Well when Momma and sis found Bustle's they also found what was left of Hero. She was left just three feet from the coop door, next to the shed. Poor dear. And then today, momma and sis found another dead hen. She had no sings of foul play. Just dead. So we are not sure what is going on with all of the chickens but if any more die we will have no more. We are down to nine now.
 Poor sis though. She loves her hens. As stupid as they are and as much of a hassle they are. She does love them. So it is hard to see them go.
 It's still raining. I'm thinking of building an Arc here soon.
Well that is all that has happened this week and last. I pray that God sends dry weather soon.
With Love, Prayers, and Blessings.
