Look what we just got...

a new shed for all my gardening stuff. This is the location I will be planting my garden next season. The double doors on the side are where the lawn mower will enter. And the little door up front is where I can walk out into my garden. I'm so excited, I can hardly wait until next spring. Now all we have to get is the fencing to put around it. I want that cute white pvc fencing with an arch at the front. It's gonna be so cool. Gary's gonna run water and electric out to it. He's already talking about putting a wall up inside and cutting my space in half so he can have a wood shop. For what he doesn't do woodwork. He's just trying to evade my space. First I got "again" kick out of my sewing room, giving it to mom. Which is okay, I have a bigger space upstairs. But they don't leave me alone. This morning I was making cards on my table listening to my ipod, singing away to the soundtrack of "Hairspray" (OMG if you haven't seen this movie you have to go, it is the funniest, and I love the music, and John Travolta) anyway I'm singing away and Gabby somes in and say "stop singing already". Now I need walls up here because I have no privacy. None! One more thing about the "Hairspray" soundtrack, when Gabby and I have gone on our walks the last two times people could of saw us dancing in the street because we had our ipods listening to the same songs from it. Too funny....just wish I could dance.

Is it any cooler anyway? Not here yet. We went for our walk this morning trying to beat the evening heat. We did have rain last night which was good. You can actually see the grass turn a little green this morning. Like it's saying "thanks for the rain". Now all we need is some cooler weather. See we move up here and this is the hottest summer they have ever had. Now you watch, this winter will be the coldest they ever have. I'm okay as long as it snows. We shall see...

Gabby's first day of 8th grade!

Well I dropped Gabby off at school this morning at 7:45. And won't pick her up until 3:30. That's such a long day. Now I am home with Gary and mom. Yippee for me! I have washed the van, watered the plants, folded clothes, talk to the State of Florida to get my $300 reinstating fee back for licenses, done all kinds of searching on the internet, talk to daughter, Heather and now I am bored. Too hot still to do anymore outside. It is pretty winding out but no rain in sight. Not one drop. So I guess I will go watch some tv and make another bear to sell. Did you see the one I have on ebay right now. Somebody actually bid on it, hurray! check it out, it ends today.

Don't forget "Big Brother" tonight. It's getting better. Little Danielle is evil just like her father. Oh and who has HBO and watches "Big Love". Heather told me to watch it. I only watched this season and it is addicting. I guess it won't be on anymore after this season. Too bad cause I really like it. Gonna have to go see if they have the first two seasons on video to rent.

What goes up must come down...

I guess that is what they say. Well I got woken up again Saturday with Gary saying "come see the hot air balloon". Well that is not new, we have already seen it a couple of times over the house. But this time it landed in the back field. I guess something was wrong with it, because once it landed two vehicles with a trailer were there to pick it up. They torn it down and went on their way. Pretty interesting to see. They are suppose to have some event with the balloons for Labor Day here so we might volunteer to help. Should be fun.

So I get this call from my friend "Barb" from Florida. Her and all the ladies are going to lunch now at "Mug and Jugs". She called to just tell me what was missing..."ME". No kidding! This has been the only time I wish I was back in Florida. Their all getting ready to start the new school year, and without ME. It sucks!! God I miss them so much, they were the best people to work with. And talk about the friendships, well I can't because I will start crying again. Thanks alot for calling Barb. I love ya and miss you terribly. Don't have too much fun without me and don't forget to email me with all the new gossip!

Well for all you who know about our driver license drama, hopefully it will be resolved today. We shall see. Got intouch with both insurance companies, up here and down there, and hopefully they can get it fixed for us. I feel so bad for the people I talk to on the phone this morning, they must of thought I was a nut case crying in their ear. I have to be going thru menopause because my emotions have been terrible lately. Ever time I hear Heather and Bill's wedding song I start crying. I need to have another baby or something . Just kidding, lol.

Well Theo dog has still been depressed. No lizards to chase or pool to drop his ball in. So yesterday I decided to make a little pool for him. He was so happy, until puppy didn't want him to have the ball anymore. Puppy is such a brat sometimes. And then Gabby wanted to go swimming. Poor thing is so bored. Glad school is starting next week. Hope that will work out good for her.

Don't forget to watch "Big Brother" tonight. I hope Dustin doesn't get kick out. I hate that "Evil Dick". What a jerk, hope it is all an act. I can't imagine anyone acting like that in real life.

It is so hot outside this past week. I guess it is everywhere. Too hot to go outside and do anything, and Gary is driving us crazy. He ususally stays outside and works but this past week he hasn't been because of the heat. He went out this morning at 7:30 and only stayed out for a half hour. What's with that. Gabby thinks he has "ocd", whatever that is.
Anyway not to much happening here. Waiting for school to start for Gabby. She has to go in and take a test to see where they are going to place her this year. Probably in "gifted & talented" which is probably the same as advanced in Florida. So we shall see.
We have all just been watching tv this week and me knitting . I did make a bear, just need to do his face. And then I will put him on ebay and see what happens. I'll post a picture when I'm done with him.
Hope everyone who reads this blogs are doing well in their lives. Oh, I have a "Red Hat" meeting tonight. Not sure if I will continue to go. They just seem to go out and eat dinner and put people on their prayer list. Not my cup of tea if you know what I mean. Plus I am going to miss "Big Brother" tonight. I said yes to going before I realized this. Must be the heat getting to me.

Big Brother is fixed I say...

at least that is what I think. If you are watching it, don't you think that Big Brother is making all the decisions. The people you think are leaving are staying. I do have to say that I love Jen now. She didn't even react when Evil poured ice tea on her head. She was so calm. And what is with that Amber. That girl needs to go, her crying is so annoying to me. Can you imagine having her as a friend. She'd stab you right in the back one minute and tell you as you are leaving "I love you so much". I do think that Evil needs to leave next too, he is so cruel, no wonder Danielle doesn't have a relationship with him. Well here is my daughters, Peppers, view on the show. Check out her blog:
It will be interesting to see who is on the panel to vote who wins. I want to be on that show. They should have it for older people like me. Well stay tuned to see who wins. Who do you think will make head of household this week. I say Jen.
