Not much today. Being rather lazy.

Hoping the house next door gets sold rather quickly. Every car noise of voices regarding the showing of the house, the dog perks up and sometimes bark. It went on the market Friday and the showings have been fairly constant. Thankfully houses go quickly in this neighborhood and it is also a seller's market here right now.

That's how it is in my town! My neighbor's house sold in a week and had 8 offers above asking price!

Sitting on the porch with my cat listening to the birds singing and one of the neighbors yelling and cussing at her kids, something about a hook from a fishing pole being found stuck in the hood of their car

Aww, that's sad. That woman has some mental problems. Is someone there with the kids?

Yeah they have two houses together and two or three families living there, plenty of people are there. Their dogs killed 5 of our cats, they have like 5 or 6 children there from their daughters and all by different men.. My dad and I are too nice to demand they do something with their dogs, they always say they will put a shock collar on them but they don't, so whatever I guess we cant have cats then.. We have two left out of 7 or 8, they are for killing field mice because we live next to an open corn field

I wouldn't let the cats outside. They can kill whatever gets into the house from within. How sad that your neighbors don't care about others.

I'd be either talking to a local dog warden or seriously considering shooting the dogs. In some states it's legal to shoot a dog that is chasing or attacking a domestic animal.

Hello morning all! How's it going so far with your day? Today, I've just had a hair wash and a shower. Tonight, just enjoying my usual TV show before heading to bed.

Our foster daughter starts school tomorrow, so we spent some time today running around after her. She wanted to help mow the lawn but our yard has some awkward sections so I did most of it. We let her run the weed whacker and she helped pull some weeds.

Finished piecing this quilt top today and taking it to the quilter tomorrow. Hope to have it as a banner at the church. Went back to the quilt I was working on for my daughter which is about 12 years late. Also pieced together a pin cushion.

Long day today, having got the call that our foster daughter can start school tomorrow we had a few things we needed to get sorted out, as well as yard work I mentioned earlier. Then we had arranged a time for her to shoot some hoops with a friend from our church, and then we got to gather everything together and get her to sort out her book bag ready for the morning. It's interesting to see the process from the other side - when I was her age my parents kept telling me to get ready the night before and I kept saying I'd do it in the morning. Now the roles are reversed.

Now I'm chilling with a beer wondering what it's going to be like to get up much earlier than I'm used to. Since tomorrow is her first day at school we said we'd drive her to and fro, and put her on the bus from Thursday. We'll also have some paperwork to see to, and need to talk to the school .

That quilt is absolutely gorgeous! It looks like stained glass!!

Drinking coffee. It's not often that coffee waits until this late but it was our foster daughter's first day at school so we drove her in, partly to make it easier for her and partly because we had a few bits of admin to do at the school as well. Then we ran a few errands and only now get to sit back. In a couple of hours we go to get her again. Tomorrow she's riding the bus.

I had hoped to go for a run today, the first in a while, but it looks like the weather is going to put paid to that and then we'll have to go back to the school. Maybe the weather will hold tomorrow and I can run then. I'm surprised that I feel the need to really unleash some energy, given how much time I've spent running around after her these last few days.

So, on Wednesday, took the quilt to the quilter. First time with her and here since we moved. I think I am going to like them, but we hold our final satisfaction until I get it back. Then I came home and worked on another block for my daughter's. Had a full body massage. This evening went to a piano recital a neighbor was doing with her students. Worked some more on the block. These blocks have a lot of little pieces to go together.

Waiting for a bit before I start to clean the back deck. Spraying the hose outside will surely awaken anyone who is still asleep since sound travels in our little area. I only clean the deck once a year but it takes a few hours and I'm completely sore afterward from scrubbing with the push broom. I use a mixture of Jomax, outdoor bleach and water. It doesn't harm the plants or grass like some other deck cleaners.
