hi blog.

School started. Do you miss me?

All is well.

Bullet points of note with a real blog post this weekend.

- I have a snow car now. My $ubaru 4ester will eat the snow that covers my road. Her name is Gilda.

-the Sophanne's have new neighbors. They ride midget motor bikes and four wheelers after school every day. Their backyard is in front of our house. Soon we will make a call regarding our township's noise ordinance. But first...

-we have to find out where the easement on the property is in case we have to use some of their yard for when we get City Water (as opposed to well water)

-I've taken to doing my own vacuuming at school. And still the custodian (who I like but am always discouraged by) comes in and complains about her job and the people she doesn't like. Another custodian had to change the vacuum bag on her vacuum cleaner so that I could vacuum my floor. There's so much wrong with that.

-knit night makes me happy. We may have a knit night field trip on September 17 to the local alpaca farm. I hope we do.

-there is a kid at my school with the name Nimrod but we call him something else. I'm glad for him and me.

-tonight's plan was to make a Black Forest cake for a cake walk this weekend. The walk was cancelled so I might be making it this weekend just to see if I can.

The noise may be a seasonal thing. When the weather goes bad, the riders may retreat to the house. (hope, hope) good luck with the easement!

1. Glen vaccuums his own room! They have one of those backpack vaccuums he uses.

2. My dad has a Forester... you'll love it!

Good luck with the noise ordinance thing. Usually isn't sexy enough for the "authorities" to act on. I would call and tell them the riders are naked. That might get their attention.

Is there any room for another knit night occupant? I seem to have tons of time now and could use a distraction. I would love to visit an alpaca farm. Is it the Lippincot farm?

to answer your question..... yes, we have missed you!

You are going to have a great winter in that car - mine is amazing in the snow!

Hi, blog! We miss Becky, but am so glad you're updating for her. She can make a Black Forest cake, if she wants to. Who the hell would name their child Nimrod? That's cruel. WTF is the matter with people anymore? Hugs. Me, Grover and Stinky

New car, new neighbors, new school year - I'd make a cake!

Why oh why would anyone name their kid Nimrod? Seriously. Though I do know a little boy named Bain. At least it's spelled different, but you can imagine...
