Since Ingrid, from Desert Canyon Living, likes my digress's (digresses, digressions? plural police, help!) I thought I would link up with Nancy (who recently DID NOT have a terrible tropical hurricanish storm named after her, lucky gal - thats Andrea from Rural Revival - menopausal moment brought to you by my synapsistic rogue brain cells) from A Rural Journal - for her "random 5 friday " linkup (links links they're everywhere! but you too can join in!) where you write 5 random facts about yourself and kin and critters and things (was this not the longest run on sentence yet? no? let me try again...). really. I also want to do this because my mind is a writers blank right now and this gives me good excuse to prod it into submission because my mind has a tendency to wander at random and Im not sure if this is an effect left over from the DVT or the castlemans but if I ever go to the doctor again Ill ask but I dont want to go anymore because it seems now they want me to do time in the catscan machine for 3 more years before they tell me im in remission but i say screw that I'd validate myself and say I am because i live in my own body and I feel fine. phew. there is a reason why they call it a run-on sentence instead of a plodding-on. well...unless your reading it...
Enough! let us begin!
*clap clap like the king in the King and I!!*
i have clouds that drop out of the sky and look scary during storms.
But since this is the wild West, scary is good because it teaches you to respect nature.
since I have the personality of a buffalo I need this.
but unfortunately i dont have a basement to hide in,
I eat chocolate while sitting on the floor in the pantry under the stairs.
even if there isnt a storm.
sometimes its not even chocolate it can be doritos
I love cool ranch doritos.
but i digress...
*my wandering wandering brain, slap me I cant Stop!*
I have only just recently in my life started to feed wild birds in the wild.
I dont know what this is, but he's colorful and I like that.
sometimes I look in the bird book but most times
I just take pictures of them because its nice to have bird mysteries.
I have found they are much better then human disease mysteries.
i dont like those, but they can be colorful too.
dont worry, i wont take pictures of those
AND show you them.
*wheres my camera? wandering brain!!! STOP!*
i like rocks.
i make mr. foresterman carry them.
then at the end of the day, he'll empty his pockets and ask me if
I want this certain rock.
"no" as i casually look over at it.
Hes learning to ask me at the moment now when I hand him a rock if I want it.
you can teach old Foresters new tricks...
it is becoming apparent that I am a blonde non threatening snake whisperer.
This is a rattlesnake.
he slept in the sun while I took pictures of him.
i think he's smiling in this one.
i like plants.
and I like to have gardens.
Once when i was living in Wisconsin, the three little neighbor girls down the street
came to visit me as i was clipping herbs in the garden by my goldfish pond,
the same pond were my fish knew my voice and I could call them out of the depths for the girls.
"are you a witch?"
the youngest one asked.
Her oldest sister gave her a huge nudge and whispered scolding.
I just laughed and laughed.
its always best to keep them thinking....
I am finding broken artifacts at the top of the burn in the old homestead.
I am now thinking of digging it up, but i have to use a shovel, which is time consuming and messy.
wheres a backhoe when you need one?
is this why we DONT have one?
that sneaky smart mr. foresterman...
payback time for the rock incidences.
this is a vintage glass bonsai tree that I bought for 5 dollars at the last auction,
where I only bid against myself once that time.
tomorrow Im going to another auction.
They have horses there.
