"Drying out"......

We have had a dry house for quite some time....but I have broken the barrier - pre-meditated calculation of picking up a bottle of merlot to drink all by myself!!!! but to smooth it over I had to pick up the balancing factor for the Hubby ...Upper Canada Dark Ale....

And to get a kick start to 2008 I picked up BlackBerry Merlot and Zinfandel Blush wine kits - for us both to have some fun making... The Merlot will be MINE ALL MINE (To be shared only with those Rivettes who dare to solo tow to the next event.....) Okay so maybe I will have to make a second batch by then - Spring is a long way off right now......The Blush will be for home where it shall create the mood to "blush"

Have been Well - much better now - that the parents have moved and settled quickly into their temporary quarters.....and have started the process on the new place AGAIN!!! the septic has finally been approved and now we shall go to the Minor Variance hearing for the THIRD TIME!!!! Never live in Ontario Canada - their whole reason for existance is to promote beaurocratic BS and paper work....

Anyway - hopefully in the next month we will finally have our GREEN LIGHT and want to chip the ground in January if possible...to have the parents in the new place by early summer....

Still waiting on the Insulin Pump approval for Peter, and Mom is actually now moving around a bit more without her walker!!! - which is just short of a miracle!!!

Soo I am quite happy these days....and busy just being busy - have no idea at what but my days are full.....

I just started another mini project..anyone into sculpting?..here's my latest..
Paula I have never tried sculpting. Your bear looks great. Sharon what kind of bear is that? Why it's a codybear of course! I have done some ceramics though. I made a mug, and a couple of lamps for the kids' rooms.

Laura I know how frustrating that is. I have had too many hard drive failures...well even one is too many right? Plenty time for marriage kiddo, enjoy your youth and independence.

Sharon, I am up! Having the house up by summer for your parents is terrific news.

A Kodiak - is that it Cody Bear?????

sure is real cute....

The only ceramic I ever did was in the 5th grade and I made a little toilet with a head in it with racing stripes - it was funny really - a big thing was my Dad's morning constitutional tee hee so I thought as a young kid he used to hide in there from all of us with his newspaper so I made a special ornament for the bathroom.....you know in the move I came across it and laughed my head off....brought it up for my Dad and he blushed...guess what he did - not through out!!!!!!


The little moments in life are so precious no matter how corny they may be....

Glad you made it up Carol - no excuse of a MetDet Rally to keep us down for the day now is there

Laura no telling any secrets now - you are 21 now and that is a golden rule

Yea, This computer stoped working as far as the wireless internet, so I called, to try and get it fixed, well i was 24 days past my warrenty, so they wouldnt even talk to me, so I called the US HP number, after 2 weeks I recieved a call back, then I got a 2 year warrenty for free for my troubles, but then they said they would send me a new wireless card. Well 3 weeks later, it still didnt show up, after about 50 calls, I finally got it yesterday, and that wasnt the part that was broken, but I called back and they sent me a box to send it to HP, so 2 more weeks at least.

Isn't that always the way of warantees they are rigged to expire a month before you need them! Good negotiating on the free two year warantee. If I have any problems I am going to get you to be my agent.

Good Morning All,

Oops it's actually almost 11 here..been painting the pesky bear..

Sharon, you are sooo funny!..I remember my dad always started the day in his 'castle'!!!..how fitting a gift you made for him, pity he didn't appreciate your sincere sense of humor!!!..(big smilee here)..

We had gone to the Kernville Campground for that rally the other weekend, and Steve and I went into the Bear shop..I wanted to make a couple of bears clinging to a tree..the store had one in a lamp form, but it was soo tall..so I said I'd try to do my own..i got inspired in South Dakota at the Bear Country USA in Rapid City. and loved seeing the baby bear cub nursery where there were about a dozen clinging to a tree that had to be at least 20 ft. tall..

So this idea I had, I go and google baby black bears: they all look different with different muzzles and marikings!..so I'm sitting here trying to decide which one to copy!!!..anyways, I'm painting it black..not brown, or cinammon, or gray,..

here's the link to my video I made of the little cubs

Oh that is just perfect!!! I have of course a partiality to black bears as they are our dominant species around here - actually had our first Bear encounter this summer when I left my wood shed door open where we keep our garbage can - well you can guess where all the garbage was in the morning...

Michelle - I would have followed your advice but it has now been far too many years - just ask Carol how much use my computer has - in particular my key board...
But I will not settle for no from now on in my life...and certainly not from any of the male parts out their that think we were all born stupid... (okay they are not all like that but still far too many of them are!!)

Paula your bears are adorable!

Good luck with all the hoops and paperwork for the house Sharon. That is so good of you and Peter to do all that on behalf of your parents!

I can toast to that Michelle oh you mean the computer yes of course .

I pm'ed Laura this morning to let her know the same - my machine is now 4+ years old so they have perfected the issues they had with the LCD's and pixels death..

many of my pixels recovered but just enough to be annoying with dark colours...

Wow CodyBear - you don't take too much time to get that sculpture done - it looks great.

...but where is the little beehive in the hollow of the tree -

Call your bear Winnie The Pooh and Winnie the Pooh Too
