Snow, birds & Sunset

I feel like I am taking one step forward & about ten back every day!  The house is a total "war zone" & I am discovering this is way worse than moving!  At least if you are moving things get put in boxes & labeled so you stand maybe a half a chance of knowing where things are!  We managed to empty our other two rooms.....most of which went into the office which happens to be the smallest of the three.  There are very "narrow passages" between the furniture but lots of luck figuring out where you might find clean socks or undies!  What didn't fit went downstairs in Popster's man cave.  His biggest complaint......he can't find his way to the bar to make a cocktail!  Poor baby!

It was a rat race all weekend getting the rooms empty & doing all the painting between trips to either L*wes Or H*me Dep*t to buy paint, trim, baseboard etc.  We have a standard joke every time we walk in the door "here goes another $100"  Seriously it is between $104 & $112 every time & we have been making daily trips.  Every other trip involves trying to bring home 12 foot long pieces which have to stick out of my window & usually there is a gale force wind or it's snowing ! 

Fun times!
These pics are from the big storm last week that dumped 13+inches of snow on us

This is Popster snowblowing paths in the backyard for Molly!

Just one of a few things he does for her
I had to shovel my way to the bird feeders
They are going through a lot of seeds this year

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
