you guys have figured me out...

you are completely correct farm lady, I do function well when I am needed and there are things I need to do... I don't like to just sit around or do nothing.... very often but, I can't tell a lie there are times when I do just bury my nose in a great book and travel off to another time and place for a bit and let other stuff go.

My day in reverse :)

I made some chicken pies tonight... (flash on)
 we would have been fine with just the small one (flash Off)... but we have plenty of left overs :)
 Hank was letting me practice on him with the nikon...
 then he got a cattatude....
and gave me the back of his head...
 the tree that was hit by lightening a while back...  :(       is not going to make it....
 there is a little silver speck (click to embiggen) it was a plane flying VERY high up
 the confederate roses are blooming so we practiced a bit with close ups too...
 Mike got BIG BERTHA out and took down a couple dead trees, and there are about 15 pines on his list... soon very soon they will be down!
 this morning I went to Glascock county, about 50 miles south of here to deliver a van load of baby things to a young girl who needed them... Myself and two other families pooled thing together for her.  It was a beautiful, slightly chilly day... I love fall when the cotton is ready to harvest, so of course I had to stop and get a few pics
 it is just soooo darn pretty
 makes me smile in a big way to get to see things that God has made...
I saw some old places that I wanted to stop and take pics of but traffic got kinda crazy and I was trying not to miss the turns to get back home ... so I only missed one had to go back but, I knew it as soon as I passed it so only went a city block...a little town block LOL and cut through a cemetery to get on the right road....

Am totally over our heat pump... we have had it barely 5 and a half years have had more problems with it than we did the old system in 19 years... It turned really cold here the last night and mike turned the heat on and the blower motor blew out... technically I think it is still under warranty but, after the out side motor blew this past spring and it took them 2 weeks and we eventually replaced the motor ourselves... mike said bad words and that he will take the part to work on Monday and get a replacement on his own....

I went to Genes funeral last night ... there was a MOB of people from all walks of life there... Gene was very loved by so many, it was really extra special ... I have a funny tale from it but, I think I will keep it for myself for a spell. 

Teresa, the lady who I traded my old camera for her cedar chest is totally LOVING the camera and we are making plans to get together pretty soon ...we live about 50 miles apart so has to be a bit of planning involved and plans to spend the whole day together too... we have so many of the same interests and the same slightly twisted sense of humor so not only did I get the chest I wanted and her the camera she  wanted but a new friend too and that is PRICELESS :)

I went yesterday and got TWO new pairs of glasses for 67 dollars :)  my old glasses less than two years old and the second pair that the transitions have come apart on... had to be replaced and I am so done with the place I have gone to for over 10 years after these last two pairs issues... so got one clear lenses and one sunglasses and am SO OVER THE TOP HAPPY !!!!!!  *and I can see without the transition fog* 

I had some of the pics I posted in the last post printed just to see how they would print ... and OH MY WOW!!!! I am so  amazed, thrilled, happy, giddy, a tiny bit suprised , and did I mention happy with how the pictures from the Nikon prints... and YES DAD I HAD EXTRAS MADE TO SEND YOU and JEANNIE!!!  :)  umm I do need your new mailing address so call me when you read this and tell me... HA HA HA isn't it funny I can drive 770 miles to your door but can't remember your new address any better than I could the old one for umpteen years.....

I am sure there is more ratteling through my little head but, it will have to come out and play another time... hope you are all having as good of a time as I am :)   love hugs and prayers for all... until we meet again, God bless you and keep you !

Lovely post chick... so nice to know you made a new friend, the funeral went well and you made lovely looking pie.
Your cat is like our Teddy, does not like having his photo taken.

No idea you had a cat either--and I wish you had one more--mine! You don't want another one , do you? She doesn't like us, and we're not too good a friends. The first cat I've ever had that I can't find a love relationship with. :(

Hate that about the heat pump--we have a gas pack or something like that. But until 2004, we used a Siegler oil heater--and I was SO glad to finally get central heat! But that oil heater did get you warm--on one side at a time!

I know you love to read, I've learned you're a home-body- (hermit, like me!), but I admire the way you get around, too! You're as a busy a body as I read! (Everybody I read is way busier than me, it seems!) Of course-I'm a bit older than you--and I think I've been married longer than you are old! ;)

I gave up on transitions years ago, I was so sick of looking through a grey lens no matter whether I was inside or outside! One suggestion NEVER get anti glare finish, it makes your glasses smudge all of the time!

It looks like winter is coming there, the trees have shed their leaves!

I've never seen a photo of ripe cotton plants before. Cool!
