I am Grumpy

I hate grump mode!!
I don't know why I'm grumpy (that's a hard word to type, by the way) today, and since I know I am and don't want to be, it makes it makes me that much grumpier!
I was good earlier today, but then I did this, then I did that, and now I had planned on sitting and writing something brainy or witty or both! I had all these ideas swimming around in my head, but did I go directly to the blog without passing GO??? Nuuuu, of course not, now it's all gone, bye bye woowoo see ya. So, bye for now, I'm going to go mope.

Happy 4th of July .................. Wonderful 'Wordless' Wednesday

There is a huge rock near a gravel pit on Hwy 25 in rural Iowa . For generations, kids have painted slogans, names, and obscenities on this rock, changing its character many times. A few months back, the rock received its latest paint job, and since then it has been left completely undisturbed. It's quite an impressive sight. The flag is actually painted on the rock.

Here's the artist Ray "Bubba" Sorensen.

Finally Friday??

It was just WW, now it's Friday & I haven't written a gosh darned thing! No funny anecdotes, no bubbly babble, no fire ant explanations,no report on the chiropractor & my perfectly balanced feet! (sad, the only part of me which is in good shape is only stuff below the ankles! and really that's just structural, I still have the owie toe from when I kicked a door in high school, sigh, I just can't have, oh no, wait.... now that I'm checking stuff out, yes, really looking at SOME of my parts, not any of the interesting ones, I do have pretty good hands/nails, and my hair has grown back very cutely curly, and I do like my butt, hehe, I feel better now) *ding*

My SC mom, Joy found this really cool free (+shipping) paperback swap website! She's been using it a couple weeks now, and hasn't had any problems or snafus, snafoos? snaphues? snaffoos? I think that last one, anyone know? I'm not in the mood to look it up. Duh, spell check, it was the first! the last one looks more fun though, doesn't it? Oh, anyway, you list 9 of your own books to start, which gives you 3 credits, which you use to 'shop' with and 'purchase' other people's books. They mail them to you at their expense. If someone wants one of your books, you get an email, then you print out the shipping wrapper (regular paper, which will print with their address, shipping costs, & lines to show you where to fold around the book. Nifty huh?!), apply postage (media mail for most books is 2.13) & stick in the mail. When they receive your book, you get another Point!!

So, to sum it up, 3 of your books offered = one incoming, then 2.13 for each thereafter (cost of you to ship outgoing/get receipt point/incoming). Big sigh, I guess I could have just said "Check it out, here's the link....' but, I just thought of it.

I was out repotting some geraniums, jasmine, and a hibiscus, and did some petunia trimming, so brain kinda
sunny side up. (not hot enough to be fried).
Oh, 'Check it out, here's the link...

I'm going to go have some ice cream now. MMMmmmm

Fire Ants & Migraines

This weekend has not been pleasant!
Between fire ants invading my laundry room and kitchen and having an almost migraine starting Friday to a full blown one Sunday, to back to an almost one STILL. I have not been a fun person, phbbt, argh, & big sigh. I found a chiropractor which will take my payment form & new patients! Woo-Hoo! So will be seeing them this evening & will hopefully get back to normal, well, my normal at least.
I'll try, will, because I know it's gotta help whatever they do, get back to writing on here regularly and with some substance! I have all these topics I want to cover and just never have enough non-dizzy sit down time to type.
So fingers crossed everybody!

I'll also give some info on fire ants for those of you who have never experienced the nasty mean lightning fast little painful biters!
