I finished A Dance with Dragons last week, so now my wait begins.

A day off after 6 days at work! (Which is not a long time compared to some stretches people go through, I know, I know, but for an introvert working in a public space and having a lot of On time, Off time is much welcomed and needed.)

I so love hunting season and it's nearly here! Hunting tripps keep me alive and kicking and I just cant wait. If I can just keep away from my sneaky Dr's always plotting to put me under the knife.

I love, love, LOVE surprising people I love with perfect gifts that they aren't expecting.

A few weeks ago, I surprised Brian with Lego Delorean from Back to the Future. (And luckily, I got it at the pre-order price which was significantly cheaper!) Because of the excitement over the car, we showed the kids the first movie last night. They loved it! And Tyler was so excited to wear his Calvin Klein polo today.

Just today, my brother got this USA Pro Cycling Challenge Jersey delivered to his door. My brother is a huge cycling fan and an avid cycler. The race went through our hometown this year, and since he lives in AZ, he couldn't be there. When I saw this jersey with our state flag on it, I knew it had to be his! My sisters and parents agreed and we ordered it for him. I loved hearing his excitement so much!!

Aww but as a birder who has never even SEEN a grouse, I have to be a bit sad at the start of grouse season. :(

All the grouse near my house disappeared about 10 years ago as the woods became too dense for their liking. We used to occasionally get them banging into our windows and breaking their necks, which usually made for a tasty meal.

We had a few hit the windows over the years and yes they shure have their up and down cycles (usually 8yrs but sometimes more). The turkeys (feathered variety) here really drive the grouse away especially from the winter feeding areas but I do love to go hunt them where the numbers are good, lucky for me there is always a lot up at our ranch near Chewelah Wash. There is not much better sport in my opinion.

Going to spend the weekend manning a table at World Maker Faire this weekend. Last year our website (Cemetech) won the Educator's Choice award, so fingers crossed for similar luck this year. If any of you will be there, keep an eye out for us!

Fresh-picked apples. A totally different fruit from the waxy supermarket offerings.

Iv'e a cool big owl living in our old big barn. Been parking some stuff in there for the winter and the critter would rather be left alone . The screechy scream is totally unnerving damn near pissed my overalls the first time it screamed at me! Ya know the strange thing is under where the thing perches it drops the pellets. I'm not into lookin at poo so much but they're wierd, compressed together pellets of skulls and claws creepy.

Cool!

We have an owl nearby that we hear at night. I've never seen her, just heard her. We'd heard baby owls with her, and a visiting friend or lover. Owls are cool.

I was just trying to get a good pic for you Luet, just cant get enough light on it without upsetting it ,It flys right at my head and out of the barn and screaches a scarry scream that damn near spooks me clear of my boots! I'll try again early in the morning maybe it will be a bit less warry of me without the bright maglight but thr flash was the worst. I do think it's a screech owl it's odd to see it close up and "in the eyes" I can kind of feel its rage, can feel it only wants its privacy.

Wish I had taken a picture of just how much was awaiting our return but I loved coming home to the pile of packages and stuffed-to-full mailbox last night.

Also love my own bed. Sleeping on someone's pull-out couch gets old after about 5 minutes.

Loved seeing the skyline appear as we approached Chicago. Never get tired of that view.

I love that our daughter Sarah starts student teaching stuff next week and at my old grade school! How wierd is that! Then she graduates from eastern this year, another one down. I hope ya all just starting out with little ones start saving now it will cost way more than you think. It just boggles the mind how much it takes just to get a 4yr like Sarah now Kylie is going to be a geologist so after next year grad school an I don't even want to guess how much$. Im just saying it costs so so much more now than when our first kids started college, start saving and get in on every deal you can.

I have one more assignment due before I get a month off from school.

I have rail planters for our balcony-thing! And the flowers to go in them. Just need to work on the aforementioned assignment before I can take care of the flowers.

They're my tiny blue flowers I've been wanting since AZ. :mrgreen:

Lobelia. Since bringing them home, they are tending to look purple as often as they look blue and these are not cascading like the ones I had before could be...so, maybe not the flower I had (and killed) in AZ but close enough. :)

My baby girl Maddie turns 16 tomorrow! I just gave her the keys to an old 71 ford pickup I had been saving for her. The older kids all wanted "and got" newer cute little cars and I'm pretty shure Maddie's going to keep that pickup in good shape for a long time, at least thats how I raised her to care for tools, and pickups are tools to me anyhow. She is such a busy kid "they say she's most like me" and knockout pretty too! I'm proud of em all but Maddie has always exibited such good money sense but time will tell. Now I have to stand vigilant on guard against "s*** heel skid lid boys"and the like. Why can't I just turn back time till she was 6 or 7 and full of questions.

I love kisses goodnight from Nom. I love kiss anytime from Nom.
I love tea.
I love how much she adores Riv.
I love my grumpy, demanding, snuggly, beautiful, little baby.
I love getting to dress her in the rocketship sleeper.
I love the little nicks in her earlobe, the pattern of hair on her forehead, her little sasquatch shoulders, her snorts, her funny faces, her squishy little face.
