Where to begin?? (forgive puctuation and spelling, my spell check has gone out on me today)

I really have absolutly no idea where to begin this post.
Should I start with asking you all to join me in a happy dance, cause Chris and her son are soon to be back home! Woot!

Or, how bout we do a jig because school starts for Kyle in 2 more days! Yea!

I could start to grumble, because Tucker in now 4 months old, and chewing anything he can get his mouth on.Grrrrrrr.

We could rejoyce together, because the gentleman that owns the huge feild across the street from me has, as of Sept.15th when he cuts and bales the last of the hay, has given me cart blanch to use the feild (which is huge, did I mention it is huge!) to work the dogs in anytime I want. And, he is also going to keep me in good grass alfalfa mix hay all winter at a decent price! And!! He delivers!

Lets see, where else could I start? Ummm, how bout,Darci luv's her Bear!
Did I fail in all the many posts that I have written, to mention that Bear is the absolute apple of my eye! Since Chris has been away having pups, and Lexy's, Hank's and Cain's recent departure from our little family, that dog has stepped up, and is everything a girl could ever want in a friend, companion, and fantastic working dog. He has recently earned the title Sheep Boss. Is there nothing this dog cant do!?
I am....smitten.

I could, but I wont, bemoan the fact, that having a house and yard to care for is very time consuming, and is a lot of work! Especially when ya dont have all the tools for the jobs! Like a lawn mower?? Good thing for sheep! lol

How bout, Im entering the pic at the top of this post, in a Photo contest next month that is held anually here. There are several different catagories, I may enter more than one, but I just like that pic so much, that I think its worthy of the entry fee. Its only 5 bucks, so ......

We could discuss my lawn, which looks like aliens landed on it! The sprinkler system appears to be missing a big area, so I have a big perfectly yellow circle of dead grass, and inside that, a perfectly green circle of grass, which looks really weird right about in the middle of my yard. Looks like a bullseye. All I need now is a neon sign, pointing to it with the words, land here, your among friends!
Trying to get the landlord to get some one out here to look at the system, is like pulling eye teeth!

Im thinking of downsizing my truck. What do I need with a One Ton Deisel??? Looking at half tons, gas, and maybe not so many bells and whistles. But damn, I love that truck. It'll be hard to actually let her go, but I wouldnt mind a smaller payment thats fer sure.

My vaccume broke, and then it got fixed, thanks to a more than I am, mechanically inclined friend. ole Red says,...If ya cant be handsome, at least you can be handy!lol

Heres a random thought. I am really loving my air mattress. Does anyone know if one can find bed frames for air materesses?

Names! I need name suggestions for the new pup. I am so not able to think of a single one! Ive always cottened to people names for my dogs, if that helps. Im thinking, the only one right now that is wanting to stick in my brain, is to call him Abel, and Abe for short. You know, honest Abe, and Abel, the good brother?
I know! Thats why Im askin! lol

Im looking forward to getting out to Soldier Hollow, and Meeker here soon. It seems to long since Ive been around working dog folks, it'll feel good to get to visit again.

For all the fun Im having here, at home. I still so do miss my friends back in NC.
Big Wave you Guys!
Now Get those dogs ready for these tough ass western woolies, and get yer butts out here trialing! Bear says he can kick any of yer dogs butts! lol (he is a bit over confident to say the least)

On the diet front. Im at an empass. Dropped 30 lbs and seem to be stuck there. Cant have that! Got 30 more to go. Suggestions?? Yea, I know, put that ice cream back! lol
Ice cream makes me weak.

Heres some thing Ive been learning to do recently. Free climbing the rock wall at the New Rec Center. Its a lot harder than it looks!

It ads an element of danger that the tredmill just doesnt hold for me!

Did I mention a few weeks ago that I went to an Eddie Money concert? Outdoors, and free! Like the rest of us old hippies, he is getting old and fat, but he can still put on one heck of a performance and man can he paly that Sax! I was stage front, and danced my butt off! Had a great time!

There are, which is not unusual for me, numerous other random thoughts trying to escape my mind at the moment, but I think I will save them for later, when I can put more thought into them so they will at least appear.(lol) to be more coherent!

Last but not least, a few gratuitious pics of Bear, tending sheep from the back porch while they do a little back yard weeding.

Peace All.....

Sounds like you're in a pretty good place overall, Darci :)

Loretta Mueller said...

Yeah Darci! Congrats on everything and the weight loss too! Awesome!!!! Sounds like things are really going well for you!

Darci said...

I honestly havent been happier in years! Thanks!

Unknown said...

All I gotta say is the job hunt ain't going great here, so get that business ready and I'll be on my way!

Darci's Mom said...

I agree with your other posters, you certainly do sound happy and contented! Name for your new puppy: "Rocky", why? Because you loved that movie so much as a young girl, AND because as the newbie of the pack, he's going to have to be a fighter! Love you my girl!
