Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

SECOND TIME AROUND ART

 

What a week it has been I have been working on my new web store.

It is on www.etsy.com if you look at my blog on the right side bar  you will see a few pictures or go to http://www.etsy.com/shop/SECONDTIMEAROUNDART

I have been working on making jewelry and putting the web store together and not being a computer wiz it took me a lot longer then most people.

Where was Rick  http://rickpaulettervjournal.blogspot.com/   when I needed him and his skills .

Here I’m racking my brain trying to figure out what to put where and how to get it there and then it was time to put pictures in and there went some more brain cells.

 

001

I finally got it up and running Wednesday I think and we have made 5 sales.

I still have some tweaking to do but so far not to bad I thought.

 

002

Please take a look and tell me what you think and if you have any ideas please let me know. I need all the help I can get.

AROUND THE HOUSE

Not sure how but I think during a windows up date it gave me the new Live Writer and I didn’t even have the old one figured out yet..

Our week went pretty much like every other. The weather here is getting cooler and the leaves getting prettier.

With the weather getting colder it make’s me want to hibernate and just sit in front of the TV and eat. It will be nice to hit the road and follow the sun and hopefully we will get more exercise.

We ( I ) need to get back to painting and fixing the house up even thought we have 1 to 2 years (leaning on the 1 year) to get it done,that time will fly by and as slow as were moving it will take 2 years.

  Angela got her new glasses we ordered for her birthday,she is so happy with them you would have thought I got her a new car.

I spent most of my weekend in my man cave working on jewelry,watching TV and having a few cold ones and yes I do invite Angela to come in as long as she behaves her self and not touch anything.

All the boxes are full and some new ones on top of the pizza oven. I’m working on a web site on http://etsy.com/   but that’s going about as slow as the painting. I think what’s happening is my job is getting in the way again.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

 

Not a lot going on here, I took a few days off to just relax.

Thursday I took Angela to Eye Master to get new glasses Sunday is her birthday and you know what happens to your eye's when you get older!! just kidding dear. You have seen the ads for eyeglasses get any frame and lens for $65 or two pair for $99 blah blah blah well $400 dollars later we were out the door. So much for getting a bargain but that's what she wanted for her birthday. And she is going to look so cute with them.

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY HONEY"

Friday we took the dogs to the dog park we even took Max this time. It was Max  first time going to a dog park we didn't know how he would react with all the other dogs and may be start a fight.

 004

He can be a little wild sometimes,but he did real good he did not pay much attention to the other dogs. I guess he looked at the size of some of them and knew what would happen,maybe he not as dumb as we thought. He's not to crazy about riding in the back of the truck in his kennel but he gets car sick or is it truck sick.

 005

Max looking over his shoulder keeping his eye on the big dogs..

Saturday night we had a little party for the birthday girl.

004

Saturday we took Annie to the dog park.We have never been to this dog park it is in the down town area of Kansas City.

005

Annie found so many new smell's.When I took her leash off she took a few steps and looked back to make sure it was ok to run around and play.

KEEPS GETTING IN MY WAY

 

Like I said in my last blog work is getting in my way. Here it is Monday and just getting to my weekend blog. But I guess when you work for a church with 2000 members and a school  fall and winter are very busy times. So here is what has been happening in our boring life.

Friday was shopping and cleaning out garage day. Did get a lot of junk out of there.

Saturday we took the day off and took Annie (The Lab) to Parkville for Parktober fest. It was a small festival to raise money for the park system.

They had good music,food and cold drinks..

I don’t know what it is but when we take Annie out she draws a crowd, and kids love to pet her.

003 

This a southwest food restaurant in a train car I thought Sam & Donna and Dennis and Donna would like to see.

Sunday it was back to work,there’s that word again it keeps getting in my way. I sure hope my boss doesn't find my blog and read it.

Hope everyone has a good week.
