no idea what I meant to write about

hey y'all

I had it on my to do list to do a blog yesterday

So, yeah, that went so well

I fell walking the dogs yesterday. Boom. Luckily, Sadie, who I walk while BA walks Sonny, did not run when I dropped her leash. She went right to her other mom.

Scraped up my hands, knees and pride and twisted my ankle. Not too bad, all in all, but it sure put a kibosh on my writing blogs!

Life is finally slowing down

Hey y'all!

I know I've been sporadic. I apologize. Without getting too personal, life has been a little crazy, with a new grand-nephew in the family, a slew of deadlines, and a house that needed to be fall-cleaned.

Okay, we're still cleaning and donating bags and bags to the Goodwill. BA and I are a little pack-ratty. We collect weird cooking implements, for example. Garlic presses? We have 3, one of which rolls. Bizarre egg white beaters? No less than 4. One is a crank kind with its own bowl. One is a tiny one that also does chocolate milk.

Then there's the stuff. Teapots. Turtles (BA) crocodiles (me) basset hounds (both)... Cowboy art (we were out of space so we made a pact to only buy originals. (We still need a sliding gallery wall.) Ravens. weird gothic dolls. Yeah. We're packed to the gills.

Anyhoo, I should be back on a regular schedule now for a bit. I missed y'all

Looking forward to art time

BA and I went to the studio today and cleaned and put everything away. we're ready to start making Christmas art. I want to make ornaments and advent calendars and cthulhu santas!

Babies and cowboys and trick or treat oh my!

Got back from the Professional Bullriding Finals just in time for Halloween. I thought sure I had some cowboy pictures on this machine, but it looks like they're all on the desktop, not the laptop.

So instead I share our Halloween decorations:

I also give you the boy basset dressed as a bull with a cowboy on his back

So I guess there are cowboys!

Last but certainly not least, our niece gave birth to our great-nephew this morning at about 4:45am. 6lbs 3ounces, and everyone is healthy. Hooray!
