Library time

So I have not posted for the past two days. I slept all day on Thursday and I had a doctor appointment that I missed, and Friday I was really busy up until work time. So how have all you people been. Me and Cheryl worked out in the yard today. I hate the yard it is to big for me. I think that I would like to live in an apartment, that way I would not have to work in the yard, but the only problem is that there are none out in the boondocks. Where there is hardly any crime.
I could not listen to the fire trucks, ambulance, police cars go by at all hours of the night and day. I visit my m-i-l (mother-in-law) 's house and it seems that the noise never stops. I like having the only noise before 10pm the neighbors 4x4 truck going down the road. After 10 everyone is burning a fire and getting drunk or stoned and there is not that much noise the occasional radio going on but that's not so load that you hear it in the house. When the dog barks you know there is a reason for it.
So anyway I downloaded "Stationary Bike" by Steven King, "The Mutiny on Board the HMS Bounty" by William Bligh, and "Kidnapped" by Robert Louis Stevenson. That will give me something to listen to for the next week. I also picked up "The Great Hunt" by Robert Jordan. I can not wait until his final book comes out, (I hope who ever is writing for him does not screw things up). I am still reading "The Path of Daggers" by him and I finished "The Devil's Labyrinth" I just could not get into "The Grave Tattoo" so those two went back. I have yet to knit anything so I still have that blanket, footies, and potholder to do.

So I listen to books on tape and CD. I like doing it because I get the chance to listen to them at work. I happen to have two bosses that let me listen to them off my mp3 player, or I listen to them on my CD player or tape player. I have to go to the library to download my books but it does not bother me to go there.

this web site one of my co-workers found and I saw some of the pictures, I found them funny and thought i would post it.


so i stopped working on my knitting and crocheting to read a book (yes actually read). I need to read "The Path of Daggers" by Robert Jordan. He has a series going that i found very good, but I can not bet this book on disc and the library will not let me borrow it from another county. So right now I am listing to "The Devil's Labyrinth" by John Saul, I find that it is a boring book (but I am on disc 8 so i am not going to just give up on it). Then I am going to listen to "The Grave Tattoo" by Val McDermid. The wife says that it is a very good book. I might do a little knitting after I get done with the blog and being on the Internet.

friends and family

this is my sister's and her husband's blog


so how is everyone out there in Internet world? i am fine and doing much better now that i am back on nights. me and the animals are doing just fine. the wife is not doing to good she has a cold (poor Cheryl [my wife]). the only problem with working nights is that there is nothing on TV. oh before i forget to tell all you people again i do not know how to spell and i forget to capitalize my words. so if you have a problem blame the schools that i went to. I do not forget to capitalize my words when i am using pen or pencil. I never took typing and I might talk to one of the computer teachers to help me learn how to type. So I try to remember to capitalize and do the spell checker.

talking about spell checker io love that little function of the computer only problem is that all the words in the dicionary is not on the computer. i remember back to when i had to right my ramblings on paper and I could not do spell check. the only problem with this spell checker is that it does not capitalize my words , or it does not now the meaning of my statements so it does not do any of the cool things that word does for me.

Well this was my first day back to work and I had to work during the day. All I did was vacuum up the media and the rug in the front office. I used the supper duper host machine. I hate using it do to the fact that you have to take out like 6 filters and wash them. All in all I had a good day. the worst part was getting up at 6am. The get going was hard, and I did not want to get up although the good side is that i did not fall asleep before going off to work. I imagine that I will be going to bed early tonight. I would like to get some done on my potholder before then. I did get some done on my footie while at work.

Today Is my first day

So today is the last day of my vacation. being a janitor at a high school gives me most of the days that the students have off. But I had high hopes of doing lots of things around the house on this vacation and nothing got done. I have yet to finish fixing the house and make all my changes to the outside. then i wanted to work in the yard and get it cleaned up but just could not get motivated. That is a picture of my little dog Ginger.
So I have her and a mastiff named angel. I have several cats and a rabbit. Most of the cats live outside they are dropped of animals that no one wanted to love. So we got them fixed and now there will be no more litters coming from this yard. I live on over an acre of land and try gardening once in a while. Right now I am trying my hand at growing a bonsai. I hope that it will come out right.
I have a pink grapefruit tree in the yard and a kumquat tree. I tried to grow a banana tree but it died along with my mango tree. I did do a garden and all I got that was not bad was lettuce. The caterpillars ate my oleander. I get frustrated and quit doing it, when I find the solution to the problem and try again. I want to grow my own coffee tree and in joy the fruit of the gods by my own hand. I have peanuts that Iwant to grow but the pots I have are to small for it so I have to get some new ones.
I used to have a blog on myspace, but I got tired of it so now here I am. Things I like to do is mostly crafts, which is knitting and crochet. So there will be a lot of talk about that.I like to fish but have not done it in so long i think my equipment is bad. Right now I have on the needles a blanket and slippers and a pot holder. Me and the wife Cheryl like to go to Disney and get as many of the charactures pictures that we can find. here are a few of the charactures http://picasaweb.google.com/ricky4773/Disney
