Quick update...

Past couple of weeks ..

The kittens are still working on their "look" and have not done anything particularly cute ~ ~ yet.

I took a long walk in the rain, on purpose. 

Decided to ask the butcher to just give me the hog in wholesale cuts, and I would take it from there. No, don't put cure in the hams, no sausage, no I am not out of my mind.  I have a hacksaw, a bandsaw and if need be, kidding.

I have a graduation party for a friend's son coming up in a couple of weeks and although I swear we are not doing it this year, there is the late July railroad fest.  Sigh.  I say that the whole hog is gone before the first of August.  Big Food season is upon me.

Audio entry - Goin Whole Hog on this one

Lest this entry promt some sort of spontaneous wave of 100 pound plus meat purchases, please be aware that pork freezes well but 4 months is about the maximum quality limit. My experience anyway.

Kitten Update

Boink Boink and her six new kittens.  Three look like they are going to be black, three yellow tabby.  Fair warning!  There is a great potential that lots of way too cute kitten photos are going to be appearing in this journal soon.

Oh, and I am guessing that the kittens are going to need names sooner rather than later.  Contest anyone?  I will have to think on it.  Obviously the prizes for the winners won't be a free kitten, no one would play.   Back to you on that later.

Puppy was very concerned about the whole process.

Three and Four

this is gonna take a while, I fear.


Boink number two!


Boink Boink was moved to a handy wash basket (I was folding laundry). Still on my lap - but once removed.  Boink number one safely here.

This is supposed to be two truths and one whopper lie

but no one is going to believe this ... and it is absolutely true.

Boink Boink Kitty (my cat) has despite the boxes of varying sizes and open closet doors -- kitty has decided that the best, safest place to give birth is on my lap, tonight.

One handed typing updates, as time and events allow.

Audio entry - A rant - I was NOT a happy girl ...

Well, that and I was dirty, tired, had poop in my hair and spent an additional 45 minutes that way, for nothing. 

My Audio rant is about how a local vendor (Nagy Equipment Sales) was open 2 minutes less today than they said they were going to be open.  How do I know that it was exactly 2 minutes less?  I set my watch to the time found below.  My watch was correct. 

 The official US time

Oh the whole poop in the hair thing?  I, sigh, have one of those jobs. Today was not as bad as some others have been, but aint none of em all that great.

I have sooo gotta stop watching "Most Haunted" and "Charmed"

Today I stopped at a local home improvement store, parked next to a shopping cart corral with the intention of taking a cart in with me since I was going that way anyway, and had something entirely coincidental yet interesting all the same happen.

Two carts in the corral, towards the back, I was just about to walk in and grab one when a gust of wind blew them both backwards towards me.  The one furthest back turned half sideways and stopped against the rails.  The cart closest to me continued until I could grab it.  Odd.  Even odder was my first impression, that I had somehow thought the carts into action.  Of course it IS possible that I had an instance of being able to control the physical universe limited to moving shopping carts.  But my reality voice kicked in and reminded me that coincidence just happened to put me in a place to prevent a windblown shopping cart from attacking someone's car.

On the other hand in the event that I have suddenly developed telekinesis, tomorrow I will work on convincing the garbage to transport itself to the dumpster.
