I Am Back

Well, here I am. I don't even know if I know how to get this blog up online anymore!! I really had thought about closing my blog down but I gave myself enough time and realized I really did like blogging. Keep at me, I don't want to get out of the habit of posting. That was part of my problem. I do like to blog, but after I missed a couple of days I got depressed because of that and then just kept putting it off.

I hope to turn over a new leaf and at least drop a short note everyday.

Not much has been going on in my life. That is OK. I like it that way. As I have gotten older I certainly have gotten to enjoy the passive nature that my life has taken. It gives me time. I don't know, yet, what I do to pass all the time I have, but, I must do something with it because I never have the time to do things. And I really don't want to think about what I do with all the time.

It has, in the past week, been brought to my attention, by some well meaning friends and family, that I analyze everything too much. Hum. Maybe that is what I do with all my time! That's a thought. So, after being hit by this by many people this week, it seemed like too much of a coincidence, that...after analyzing it!!!...I decided I needed to stop analyzing everything. At least I will try. So, maybe I will have more time now. We will see.

One thing did happen this week at work. We were invaded by bees. We had our bug guy come out and he sprayed powder where they were at above the office. As it seems, it did rid them out of the office only to go and sit outside the office waiting for the workers to go find a new place to call home. In the mean time, one of the guys there...might I ex marine...decide to get a plastic bag, get on a ladder, trap them and pull them down!! (I found out later, that that is what they do to get rid of them!!! Can you believe???)

Hum, as he went for them, he touched them a little too much and they took after him. He down off the ladder and ran...get this...back into the office with bees clinging to him. Now they are no longer above the office but IN the office...MY OFFICE!!! He shook them off and...are you listening...went and got the jet vac and swept them up as they flew by.

Check out the pics I took. Not good ones, but you will get the idea!!! Ah yes, to know our country is being protected by Marines gives me such peace. Now, now... I promised not to analyze!!!!

BTW this pic is my retired boss' office, not mine. I was standing in mine to take this pic!! You can see the nest hanging from the tree!! Ugh!! I took the pics through the window. I knew if those bees went swarming, I would try to run, and fall and I would be their NEW place to call home! But I am glad he was around. Saved us a lot of money...minimum $350...and he took care of the problem!! Just glad he didn't get stung!! They said at that point they should have been pretty passive and they were!

Oh, forgot, I finished a new LO. Boy. This one is sure different for me, but I love doing things out of my norm.

It feels real good to be posting again. I guess I have missed it more than I thought.

I will be seeing you around. Need to get busy and do something creative for today.

Have a great Saturday. Remember the weekends are for R & R. Just do it; and as always...
