Gobble, Gobble You Turkeys!!!

Okay, well not everyone is a turkey but if you are one and realize it, ain't life so much more fun?

Ummmm, unless you're a real life fowlish type turkey then you're probably tap dancing in the oven in a few hours.....

It's been a while since I posted so this will be long winded, no doubt.


Gifts in the mail
Holiday wishlist giving time over at C'ville

Well wishing:
Hoping Lynlee is doing alright, thinking of ya daily!

Recent Projects:
Too many to name....My list seems to grow daily! Tomorrow I will post a ongoing working list of projects needed before Yule begins.

Wanna go dos:
See Harry Potsmoker aka Potter, the kid's think it's funny to call him potsmoker...ahhh the little thrills in life!
Go see Rent...PLEASE don't let the eldest offspring start singing at the top of her lungs during the showing!

Recent thrills:
Closed my bank thrilling is this you ask? Pretty damned thrilling! I hate banking... I pay cash for everything anyway, just had it cuz I might need it....We made the decision to close it after our little home town bank was bought out by Citibank....It's surprising how much freedom there is in not being tied down to an financial institution. We still have a savings account just not checking. I know you think I'm crazy, okay crazier than normal, but really I like things SIMPLE.

Also The Old Man was made District Manager at his job....and remember back a few months ago he turned them down for this very position due to less family time? Well seems he can work from home and only put in very few actual office hours!!!! How cool is that? They heard his desire to be a dad/om and still wanted him!!!! His promotion should be announced after Turkey Day, prehaps the following week...unless anything squirrely happens and he backs out then its good to go!!! This means insurance and a pay increase plus per diem! WOOT! All I can see is more yarn! HAHA shhhhh dont tell. I guess he will tell them something definite at the final meeting...

Recent disppointments:
The eldest offspring is a drama geek....and she lost her bid for one act play for UIL...she was so disappointed...But she is to be in a musical in a month or two...hopefully this will ease her sadness...Either the musical will or I will have to buy her a giant poster of Cabaret...she is a Liza freak. She even wants Sally Bowels hair....Ooops, rambling!

And finally decisions:
We have a 53 arce farm...with fence and cross fencing as well as a barn and many corral type fences. We raised goats until two years ago when wild dogs killed the whole herd, almost, save 4 we gave to someone to protect them from becoming munchie treats. Anyhoo I have decided that this place needs to work for me and not the other way round....I am now on a mission to find angora bunnies, some alpacas and renew my herb garden and gourds. The Old Man and I want solar power and to make this a true homestead......We have been mapping out plans and it may take a year or two on somethings....but the ball is rolling and we gotta try. As soon as time allows we will set up a site to sell some of our product we usually sell from home....well actually we rarely sell but barter, but thess improvements take money not goods for goods so as much as I dislike to we will try and sell some of our items we hand make here. This is by no means a plea for anyone too look or purchase our goods just talking out loud, k? Last year we made near $400.00 from our gourds, unpainted , granted this sounds like a minute amount but they take no work and that was one small patch of land and about 12 plants! So these small amounts here and there add up.....our herbs always do well....and culling out livestock adds to the pot...
HOLY CRAP we sound so little house LOL oh well! Anyway we gotta give it a go and try hard....worse that could happen is we fail....there are worse things like never trying at all....

Anyway to all have a safe and filling trukey day.....celebrate everyday as if it were Thanksgiving....and wear elastic banded pants people! And dont be a dumbass and drink and drive....

Have a wonderful Turkey Day.
I wish I had some land too, I love getting into the earth.
Congrats to your Old Man on his promo.
Tell the oldest offspring that the parts we don't get make us better for the parts we do get.

Aw, thanks, Cordi!

RENT and HPGOF were both fantastic. You won't be disappointed. Like visiting old friends.

Huge congrats to the OM!

Tell the kid to break a leg in her upcoming musical!

I think the farm sounds divine! I wanna do that some day... I wish you the best of luck with it!

PS: I <3 angora yarn. Get lots of bunnies to keep me supplied. ;)
