Sunday, April 2

Whoah... flippy on the "invert" filter... :)
I call it "finger in eye". :)
~ snarf...

It's a little colder than the last few days... but it's still very NOT snowy and nothing but blue sky and sunshine. :) We were up to 20 !!!! yesterday! That's awesome!! but it's more like 11 today. Suz is up to 8 km's on her sunday morning "running room" run. sigh... that girl is such amazing shape it's crazy. Of course, I'm a sloth. I really need to get into something or I'm gonna waste away. :D
~ blue ftls
~ p-z shirt... p-z jeans... it's a p-z kinda day. :)
~ clean up, cook and relax? Sounds good to me... :)
~ we're going to my units house for family dinner time. This is way good. I love family dinners. (and not just because I don't have to cook).
~ at some point... (maybe now?) I'mma gonna watch the rest of the season finale of BSG!!
~ several things actually... all of which sound whiney and self centered... so I'll just stew them around for a bit and revisit it later.
~ to send a few comforting type vibes out to kendokamel... just 'cuz.
~ that cloverbee would get a mad scientist wig... :)

Birthday moments...

And Eva... (evangelinaarion) a very happy birthday to you lil'sugar... you've been through a lot since we met here and I can only imagine that your world will continue to grow ever more interesting... Have a wonderful year ahead. :)
... and naughtyltlangel... Happy birthday. I thought for a moment that this was a second journal for someone else but I just can't keep track... so please accept my sincere hopes for you to have a wonderful birthday and year. :)

A friend keeps me well linked to news-of-the-world stories.... and the most recent stuff is really putting the spot light on IRAN. I'm telling ya... it just does not pay to be a country with a four letter name starting with and "I".

We've finally settled on the kitchen stain... Cherry stain on Cherry wood. :)

Ok... time to have a day. :)

A day in the woods...

A day time adventure... and clickable pictures too.
(edit: links fixed)
Started with a decision to drag the kids out of the basement, away from the games, and onto bicycles.
I grabbed a back pack and off we rode to wallmart.

(bicycles all locked up!)

I found a pair of wellingtons, rubber boots, gum boots... (depends on where yer from)
to keep in a box in my trunk for visits to the property... and they were called "Andy".
This, I assume, is the Wallmart answer to Ikea calling all their shit weird names...

On the way home, I decided it would be fun to stop, lock the bikes up a street light
and climb a rock wall into a green zone beyond a traffic wall...

This proved to be a great idea... Fun climbing and when we got over the top
Edward announced that we were in Narnia... Can you see why? :D :D

We found a pond... saw cute ducks with blue heads... :)
Lots of deer tracks and giant sticks that the boys did battle with...

A great giant rock to perch on...
We had to climb down a rock wall to get back to the cars...

We got to the street light with the bikes... and LOW AND BEHOLD...
the stupid key ring, clipped to my belt loop... no longer had a key on it.
Geo locked his bike to the lamp with his combo lock and I locked the other two bikes
to Georges lock. (phew!!) So geo rode on ahead and I pushed my bike with Eds bike perched above
and the back pack home. I searched and searched... but I couldn't find the second key.
So I spent exactly 5 minutes with an exacto blade (to cut the plastic casing) and wire cutters to cut the man strands of the cable.

Safe and sound and lots of fresh air. :)
A nice day... despite the stupid lock issue.
