Date night

Last night was date night with the other half. We went flower shopping and went out to eat it was nice to have the evening off. For dinner I had the best cabbage rolls I've had in a long time. After we got home we decided to just relax outback on the patio instead of planting. I snapped a few photos of our evening.  How did you spend your night?

2013 flooding

We have had so much rain over the past 4 days we had almost 4 1/2 inches come down last night in about 8 hours half of the town is shut down do to all the rads and bridges flooded. Here are a few pics I took this evening which has actually come down some from about 4 hours ago.

These top 3 pics are supposed to be the parking lot of the local golf course it probably is 20 feet deep and flooded out onto the course.

These pics are of the local park abt a mile from my house it is flooded to the top of the bridge and the entire park looks like a lake the whole thing is completely covered. in the past this bridge has gotten covered with water. i feel so bad for all the families in howard county that have been affected by this flooding. we are lucky because we have a retention pond out back so we have not even affected but my poor parents were up all night shop vacing because there basement started flooding in 2 different places.
Thank goodness we are going to have a couple of dry days before more rain comes in.

Feverish Friday

So it's starting to warm up here we hit 50 today and the weekends supposed to be even warmer so it would only seem fitting that I would get a spring cold. Ya the kind that makes up ache all over, runny nose, watery eyes coughing and can't breathe. It all started last weekend I went to the adult Easter egg hunt with my neighbor friend while at her house we had a drink and silly me didn't pay attention and picked up her glass and took a drink ( she's had a bad cold for over 2 weeks now) I looked at her and said "oh s@@@ I just drank after you!" The doctor told her this strain of flu (a cold and i don't know why they call it the flu now? any ideas?) has been lasting about 3 weeks.
Well this is just great since now I work somewhere where I can't blow my nose without shutting the whole line down and everyone waiting on me.
Any way I hope everyone is having a Good Friday. I've been in my pjs and in bed since 7pm.

Pre Easter

Wow I haven't posted in awhile. I started a new job almost a month ago and I love the hours but its factory work building parts and my shoulders and back are killing me. It will work for now but I'm still lookin.
I can't believe this Sunday is easter where has the time gone? As I'm typing that my brains is saying to me " oh no now you sound like your parents!" Lol It happens I know we all say we don't want to be like our parents and it happens anyway. But anyway it's makin me think of spring and all the things that come with that warmer weather and the thought of being able to be outside and set on the porch I'm just totally excited about it. I hope everyone else is havin a great start to spring.

Some things I've been workin on.

Stool contest

This is the before pics of my stool...after 2 coats of paint and some new fabric...

So I took this little guy up and entered him into the stool contest at groovy girl yarn I think he turned out pretty good.

And then yesterday the other half, my mom and pops and I went out to my bros to work in the wood shop to use this...

To make a cool bench out of a small cabinet door I have. My pops started teaching me how to use all the power tools ( jig saw, table saw and circular saw) and I'm in love. He also taught me how to read the ruler so I would know what every single line stands for, I'm not sure that I will caught on to that unless I measure a lot of stuff to get practice.

I hope everyone is warm and cozy cuz it's freezing here 9 degrees as of right now.

it's been a week...

so one of the major things that has happened is i quit my job last friday. i just walked out i had had enough. it's been a long time comin i haven't been happy for awhile and i am sick of retail and especially retail management. of coarse i'm kinda freakin out now because it wasn't planned i just did it on a whim but the good thing is my other half is supporting me 100%. we are going to have to change our life style and cut back in order to make ends meet but i feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
i'm hoping to have more time to do some of the things i love and i have a lot of ideas brewing in my head. one of my high school friends has a booth at the big antique store in town (treasure mart) and she said i could put some stuff in her booth so i'm doin my spring claening and gettin rid of some stuff. i know (one of my friends said) it's not spring but because of all my years in retail we do the spring cleaning in jan so now thats when i always do it at home. i want to take more pictures and set up displays and get my photography better i also want to learn a few new things so i will have a lot to keep my busy because one of my rooms looks like a hoarders closet i have way to many clothes.
i have been looking for a new job and hope i don't have to go back to retail but if i do it will not be as a store manager and i hope it will be a different kind of retail. 'm not gunna lie i'm scared to death what if i can't find anything jobs are so hard to come by these days but i'm having faith and staying positive.
my friends told me the other day that i've hit my reset button that i'm at a point in my life where i'm ready for a change and i've taken the leap and hit the button. so anyway this is the major thing that's goin on in my life right now as more changes come i will keep everyone posted but for right now i'm enjoyin some time off and the little guys are lovin me being home with them.
i hope everything is goin good with all of you out there in blogland.
