Home Again!

The canned ham rolled into the driveway early this afternoon and even with the snow, there's no place like home.  We are glad to have had an uneventful trip and be back in "the big house".

I'm doing laundry with a smile because I don't need to haul them and find quarters and compete with other people for their use.  I can wave my arms around and spin in the kitchen without hitting anything.  It's such a giddy feeling to have so much ROOM.

I can't wait to sleep in my own bed and see if I sit up or still do a duck and roll that I've gotten so good at. She Devil will be thrilled that she can sleep next to her daddy again, she wasn't able to reach him on the upper bunk for six weeks.

Many people have asked me if this is the end of the blog....well, in a word....NO!  I am overjoyed to have 3,200 page views in my two short months of blogging and to have gathered readers from several countries.  I never dreamed that could happen and now that I have found an audience for my verbal banter and it will continue!  I'm hoping to delve into some of my favorite past times such as exploring the origin of expressions and customs.

I certainly want to continue with the Photoshop learning and will post photos of before and after to show the result of various filters and special effects in using Elements.  This is the book I have been working my way through while on the trip.  I still haven't finished it....I had this blog to write you see...

Once the weather is nicer I will venture into the yard and garden and talk about what's working and what's not, how to outsmart the deer and other varmints that treat my yard as a salad bowl and will rerun the video that Wisconsin Public TV did a couple of years ago on my garden.  They tend to run it every pledge drive, so it will be coming up again soon anyway.

I don't know what direction this blog will take, it seems to have a life of it's own and I will just let the daily events dictate what happens.  Whether it be a short story or the progression (hopefully) of my art work...who knows.

The canned ham will be rolled out again on occasion during the nice weather months and you will be alerted as to where we go and what we see.

Both Left Brain and I finished reading Water for Elephants recently and it was wonderful.  It was both intriguing as to the glimpse into circus life, but the way the aging process was handled.  I would recommend it highly.  I avoided reading it for a long time due to the inhumane treatment of the animals, but the subject was handled quite delicately and it wasn't as painful to read as I feared.

So, rest assured, the blog will go on.  But right now I have a date with my hot tub and a pizza to order.

    I've also read "Water For Elephants" and enjoyed it. Did you know it's being made into a movie and coming out soon?
