hello fall...

How do you like this template?...don't answer that... it's just my impulsive behaviour rearing it's compulsive ugly head again...but to my defense...it's all lined and not crooked like the other one. I found a gold mine of templates today...so be forewarned.

This weekend tended to be more challenging than I expected. Gord and his bro went out for a ride on their bikes late Saturday afternoon and his bro's bike broke...don't ask me the details...anywho...Gord had to tow him back into the city with a rope. IN THE DARK. I'd like to hang both of them with the very rope. Good grief, get a tow truck already~ Sheila and I were waiting for them at my house and they never showed up....and I was getting a little crazy in the head as the time went on and we didn't hear from them. You really don't want to be travelling on the highway this time of year when the deer are crossing at random. Especially when you are towing another motorcyle..........awwwww I can't believe they did that.

When can I ever relax? IT'S ALWAYS FUCKING SOMETHING. Give me a break! I'm glad Sheila was with me, because I was getting a little nuts because we didn't heard from them by 8:00 PM. They are unusually back here by 6:30. She kept me calm. Thanks Sheila, if you are reading this, I do have a tendency to over think things.

I learned how to text message this weekend. I took off my blinders and just went for it. My niece sent me a text message on Friday...and I was not about to look like an old fart. I just use my cell phone for incoming calls, I have all the bells and whistles, but ... hey I don't really need them. But on Saturday afternoon I sat down with the manual that came with the phone. Well fuck, that was a very big waste of time. I had to use a magnifying glass to read it. The type was so small. I decided to just keep on pressing all the buttons on the phone to see what they could do, and it didn't take me more than 5 minutes to figure out all the features and how to use them. Hey, I have my dancing pants back on now.....

Plus today I learned a whole lot of stuff about making DVD's ...and it's so easy. I know I have the technology, but I just don't have the time to sit down and make it happen. I'm not stupid....just short of time.

I have a great supper cooking in the oven. Scalloped potatoes..with onions, , diced ham, left over chicken, mixed veggies, in a Carbonara sauce topped up with a a combo of 4 grated cheeses. I made this recipe up. So, let's see if it tastes good.

I have my Sex in the City DVD (The Movie) in my hot little hands tonight....but, I want to save it for a day I can actually sit down and enjoy it. Thanks again to SIL Sheila for the BD present. It's killing me...but there are two CD's in the set and I am going to find a time frame when I can just sit down in front of the TV to enjoy it. I am savoring it. Now, I have something to look forward to...I don't know how long I am going to tease myself...but I'll know when the time is right.

I just wish I would have more time to crotchet, do my digital scrap booking...and all the stuff I love, like some of the stuff I was fooling around with today....learning new stuff. Knowledge keeps you young, whether it is computers, or just reading about stuff...and trying it out.

Carry on...

If men had a brain about stuff like that (stuff that make women insane), they'd take it out and play with it.

About the stuff you enjoy and rarely have time for, MAKE time. It's good for your soul.

Just remember that if you don't have a texting plan, texts can get expensive (cause you pay for both incoming and outgoing).

Ah men, I guess they keep stuff from getting boring, eh? LOL
