Did you ever have one of those days, weeks, months, years...that it seems nothing goes right? I kind of feel that way lately, when I think things are going right finally, I hit a big curve. Sometimes it gets hard to bounce back.

Sometimes I sit back and I wonder, do some people have more bad luck or negative things happen to them the others. You know what I mean, seems there is always that 'golden' person that seems to float through life and everything just works right. I wonder why that is, is it our own doing? Somehow do we bring things on ourselves, without realizing it. If so, then what can we do to turn it around so we have some of those 'golden' moments where everything flows so nicely. Hmmmm, more to ponder.

Have a happy sunny day!

A day off...

Finally I had today off. It seems like between the Post Ofc and Dino's, I have been working non-stop. Too bad Alec isn't home to spend the day with me. He volunteered to help put up the new park equipment that came in. Of course, this has been a cold, wet and windy weekend. I just talked to him and they are still plugging away on it.
A friend of ours just called and he has a calf he is going to give us. We raise them for the beef. We already have one that is about 1.5 years old, so it will be nice to have another around. Of course the ducks might protest that more of 'their' space is being taken!
Once again I did not win the lottery. Darn! How will I ever be able to retire!
I did get my recipes done for the recipe swap, so was happy about that. Did the dishes. I still need to fold three loads of laundry.

Another busy day ahead

I have to go to the post ofc and clean, then I am filling in at Dino's so will work 10-4 there. Then Alec and I have to buzz to Hays. Hopefully that won't take too long. I have laundry I need to get done and some house cleaning, but having trouble fitting it all in this week. Alec's bday was yesterday, we had a friend of his over that was in town for the night. Nothing too excited, but it was a relaxing evening for him. I have been tossing around thoughts about jobs, do I really want to work in an office again. I worked in one for so many years (over 25), and I am kind of burned out on that. I don't mind cleaning, I even have a cabin I clean when they need me to. Trying to figure out if I can get enough with that and helping at Dino's. Of course, I would prefer to be able to be home, but I still haven't won the lottery!
Well, off to another busy day. I hope everyone enjoys their day!

It's Monday!

Monday is here again. The sun is shining, which is a great way to start the day. Of course, the wind is screaming. Today I need to get this house cleaned, the mess just seems to creep up on me.
Yesterday I did start pulling out some stuff that I have been wanting to sell. We have a classified internet site that you can post things on free. Hopefully they will sell and I will keep pulling stuff out that I have been planning on selling.
I'm hoping to squeeze some scrapping in this week too.

Wind, wind, wind....

Life in general has been busy and hectic. Alec has a lot going on at work, some not so good.
The wind just doesn't want to stop. At least its getting warmer though, but there is so much dirt flying around, you can't open the windows!

I've been so busy I haven't had time to scrap and organize my room like I want to, but I am going to shoot for that in the next few days.
2SS had a weekend crop, I played BINGO and some of the guessing games, but didn't get to scrap the contests or challenges. I did work on my recipe swap and get it done. Thanks to Mary for coming over and getting me motivated.
2SS is having a National Scrapbooking Day crop on May 3rd - I am hoping it works out for me to participate in it.
