We really need to clean up the back yard. Some of those weeds are getting tall and a friend of mine gave me a ghetto idea, something he does on his lot too:
We can rent one of those plow things and hook it up to the back of my truck, and simply comb the area. Problem solved. Its a big enough lot and sure is cheaper than most other ideas. He does the same thing on his lot and it saves having to hire a tractor or rent a riding lawnmower. Sounds redneck, doesnt it? But hey, if it works, lol!
Will we do it, heck I dont know.

How about shish kabobs??

Yes I cut classes all the time, in fact, back then, my friend and I used to hitch hike into town to spend our lunch money, lol. Of course you couldnt do that now and our parents never knew just how 'bad' we were.
I pick coins up all the time, ya never know.

Pickles, we're a dill pickle family. Kosher dills

Goo morning to all.


Do you have anything you really really want to get done this weekend ?
1. Mow our other property.
2. Work on another fence at the other property.
3. Paint the roof of our other shipping container.
4. Rake and possibly seed more of our land.
5. Plant my tomato and pepper plants.

I think that's all for the weekend but I'm sure more will come up
.

lol What are the chances any of your list will get done ?

Good chance and more.


Do you wear bifocals ? No.


The "Grill Fairy" is going to stop by your house this weekend. Yay.

What yummy item do you want her to bring for your grill ? I love almost anything on the grill. I rarely buy swordfish and I love that grilled.


Did you ever "cut" or "skip" a class when you were in school ? Shh, yes.

If you see a penny on the ground will you pick it up ?Yes.

Other than change, have you ever found money on the ground? Yes.

How many different kinds of Pickles are in your fridge ? Two. Dill spears for burgers and sweet gherkins for Tuna sandwiches.

Have you ever worn a "Tiara" ? Only as a joke because my DH calls me a Princess. I'm still not quite sure what he means by that. I have a very blessed and lucky life but on the flip side I work my butt off and when I am working I am "no princess, lol"

Word of the Day:
equanimity \ee-kwuh-NIM-uh-tee; ek-wuh-\ , noun:
Evenness of mind; calmness; composure

I needed to practice a little "equanimity" yesterday. There was one contractor who seriously ticked me off yesterday. and I'm usually so sweet.
