You see this poor dog?

That's me. 

  Yeah.  He's wiped out.  Worked himself to the bone poor thing. cleaning and decorating that house.  After doing all that work he just doesn't have the energy to go on.  It's a wonder he made it up to the roof before he fell asleep.  
  But it was totally worth it you know.  That house looks great!  And now he can truly enjoy that nap knowing it was well earned.

8 Habaneros all in a row...

  Is what I had to eat to come in second place at the Goehner chilli cook off  hot chilli pepper eating contest, last Saturday.  Wow.  You know what the guy who won first place had to eat?  8 habaneros and one bite.  Yeah I lost by one bite.  The poor guy said the only thing that kept him going was the fact that he was going to get beat by a girl. 
  He did manage to keep them all down.  which is not something I can say for myself,  but I'm glad I didn't.  I bet he felt awful the next day. 

  Oh, and did I mention the second place prize...
Isn't that sick?   That's 1 gallon of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked. 

So last Saturday will now be remembered as the stupidest night of my life.  Yeah.

Corn corn and more corn...

There comes a time every summer when my life consists of corn, sunburn, corn, blisters, beanpoles, corn rash, mud, sunburn, sunburn, blisters, and sunburn. Yup that pretty much covers it, oh wait did I say sunburn, yeah? Good.
Well I'm a little sad to say that time of summer has past for me. Yup my job in the field is done, and all too soon for my taste. Oh well. I'm still feeling the affects on my crispy shoulders. And did you know wearing duct tape on your skin can result in itchy red bumps. Yeah. It's gross.
Oh well, back to life I suppose...

Well before I start telling you about today's happenings I just wanted to tell you that I've started working in the corn. Started on Monday actually. I'm so happy, and tired. Best. Job. Ever.

Any who, allow me to show you are semi yard ornament we had today...

Yeah Dad got a ton of sand that was delivered today. But it rained all night last night and most of the morning so the ground was too soft and apparently this is what happens when you drive a semi on wet ground.

They tried to dig it out... but that didn't work. So after digging a trench in the middle of our yard the truck driver call his brother too come pull him out with his bobcat.

"Oh yeah this is going to work, we'll just wrap a chain around that and we'll pull you right out."

Look at them just standing around watching one guy do all the work.

Well pulling from the front didn't work so the went around and pulled it out from the back.
Which worked great!

But apparently that was just too easy for the truck driver, so he drove the truck right back into the whole.

I kid you not.

So they chained the bobcat back up and pulled it out again. This time he stayed out. Thanks mister bobcat man you saved our yard.

What's left of it anyway.

It's been ages,
I know,
It's been ages,
But you never right,
You never call,
And I begin to wonder,
Have you missed me at all?

So many things to do,
so many places to go,
I've had no time for you,
And this has been my woe.

And that's my sad attempt at poetry. :)

Now let's see where to begin on what's been happening... After a lovely visit with my sister and brother in law (lovely except for the fact I was ill half the time.) My life was pretty mush consumed by farmer's markets, gardening, painting, thunderstorms, power outages, another cold (I thought you were only suppose to get sick in the winter??) and now I'm nursing the sun burn of the century.

Well there you have it. I got on planning to write this super long post about every thing that's been going on, but I think I wrapped it all in a pretty neat nut shell there. :D

It's a good thing too I got pies in the oven waiting to come out!

Taking a break...

I know I said I would post pictures but I haven't had time. Now my sister and brother in law are here for the week and I just wanted to tell you I will probably not be blogging this week. At all. O.k. :)

I have a good excuse!

Look at me I haven't posted in like two weeks! And I haven't changed my background in even longer! lol
I have a good excuse though. If ever there was such a thing. First there was my computer... trust me if it were any slower it would have been moving back wards. It would take me five minutes to scroll down a page! Let alone load a page!
Then there were the phone lines...Or should I say the lack there of? But the phone lines are back, and after running a few cleaners, virus scans, and "renewing my IP address" (whatever that means) it's seems to be working at an acceptable speed. And now I have a lady popping on every now and again to let me know my "virus database has been updated" It's kinda creepy actually. I take great joy in muting her. :)
So any way, I'm back, I'm busy, and I have pictures coming soon!
