I'm still here!
I've been painting, weeding, planting...
Cleaning, sprucing, tidying.....
My hubby asked me the other day if I thought we were slaves to our place.
It was his birthday, so I said, "Why yes my love, I definitely think we are slaves to our place. What an insightful observation."
Had it not been his birthday, I would have rolled my eyes and said, "Duh....ya think????"
However, we came to the conclusion that we have no clue what we'd do if we weren't working on our place. We are not really sit around and do nothing people. Except in the wintertime. Then we are couch potato, lazy good for nothings. It's a seasonal thing. We have Seasonal Affective Lazy Good For Nothing Disorder. I would imagine it all balances out as we certainly make up for lost time when the sun is shining.
And I should clarify that I have a much more severe case of the disorder, as The Farmer braves the elements daily in the winter to care for the cows and actually runs a business as well. And he puts in much longer summertime hours to counterbalance any winter lack of activity. Can you tell I'm backpedaling? Pretty much, he doesn't have the disorder at all.
It's just me.
The weather has been beautiful. Literally sunshine and roses.
Until last night. Last night, the most amazing thunderstorm rolled through. We all sat under the protection of our back porch and watched the show.
Constant lightning in all directions, pouring rain and freight train wind. It was awesome. Loved it.
The only downside....the hay. Our field is/was full of the tallest, most beautiful grass ever. Until last night.
...is now laying flat. I'd go take a picture, but I don't want to. Our internet connection has been horrible lately, and I need to strike while the internet iron is hot.
For the last week, I haven't been able to upload photos, get blogger to save my drafts, or get my email on any sort of regular basis. This morning though, it's all working like a charm. Apparently the thunderstorm gave the internet a swift kick in the pants.
While we're on the subject of technology, I got a new laptop. A MacBook Pro. I know not a single thing about it, nor does anyone in my household. Usually, I can go to any of my people for techno help, but not in this case. It's a bit frustrating trying to learn a whole new system, but once I have time to devote to it, I'm hoping we'll be great friends. If anyone has suggestions for an awesome get to know your Mac resource, please let me know.
Dear New MacBook Pro,
Why are you so very different from Windows?
I need to know.
Hoping to love you soon,
Okay invisible friends, the first workshop starts a week from Friday, so I'd best get the show on the road!
