Sorry I've Been Gone

Hi, everyone sorry I've been gone. I pulled my back out on Thursday. I could raise my arms above my waist. I'm still feeling the affects of it, my back keeps popping make it sore. But I'm able to do everything I need to do, but I just have to be very careful. I think the only thing that save me was my husband hadn't gone to work yet. The night before I felt a knot in the middle of my back and didn't think to much about it. Until the next morning and I went to pick up my 1 pound cat and couldn't stand up. I felt so bad because I hadn't even woken my son up yet for school. So try to picture this: My husband gets me to the sofa and wakes our son. Good thing we taught him how to cook, but I felt bad when my husband told him he had to make his own breakfast. So as he starts to cook eggs I stood up slow to get a plate and at least be in the kitchen with because my husband had to get to work. I couldn't lift the plate it hurt so much. I felt sooooo bad normally I get everything ready and to watch my 10yr old son do it; was bitter sweet. I hate not being able to take care of him like I always do, but to know he can take care of himself gave me such pride. He even ask me if he could get me anything. I've always wonder the morals we have been teaching him. Where they being heard by him, and the answer was YES.
I can say how proud of him I am .

You will Not Believe What I'm doing Read for a Good Laugh

My 10 yr old son came home on Monday stating they had wrote a story in class. Each child had to roll a dice 4 times to see what characters they had to put in there story. My son had gotten a lion tamer, princess (he was not happy about this one LOL) Alien and a sand storm. Now the parents have to help make shadow boxes with them. I knew I had this, a miniature artist helping her son out making a shadow box. The teacher was going to send supplies home to help the parents of course I said no need.
We grab a shoe box print photos of pyramids for the background, because it took place in a desert. We make a book because that is where the alien was captured. We made a tornado out of polymer and roll in crafting sand for the sand storm. Then he looks at me and said, " I need you to make the lion tamer out of polymer. By the way it's now Wed. night. "WHAT"
"Mom I have faith in you." With a big smile on his face.
"You may, but I don't this late at night."
The next morning I went to the store grab a bag of those $1 army men and now I'm adding polymer to him to take him from army to He-Man right now.
Boy, was I played.
Well for those that would like to read his story hear it is. I'm typing this the exact way it was written.
The Lion Tamer Hero
I am a sixteen year old muscular boy. I am a lion tamer and I am world famous. I am intelligent and talented. I am the best circus performer. I was born in Alaska, I perform at the top of the mountain.
One day, I found a book that can do anything. It was like magic. Once a spaceship crashed in the ground and an alien came out of the ship.I escaped the alien and destroyed them using the magic out of the book. It sucked the aliens into the book! I know I must keep this book out of the wrong hands, like people who would like to destroy the world. I have to hide the book in a place far away, where nobody will guess where it is.
I was on the plane to travel to Japan to hide the book underground. But we crashed and landed in the desert. The plane could not be repaired, so I was stuck in the desert. I walked and walked and walked until I reached a town and I met a mysterious princess. She didn't speak at all. She walked away and I walked away to explore the town to see what goes on in the town. After awhile a sand storm came and everybody went for shelter. Soon somebody pulled me inside their house before the storm hit. A Person started talking saying to be more careful. If the sandstorm would have hit me, I would be a goner.
Two days later the sandstorm is gone, now I run into the mysterious princess again. She spoke and said that if she could take a ride far away then we can be in a better place and live in a palace and be happy forever.

I've finished him

He glows in the dark!!!!
I've had a hard morning already and it was only 7am. My two cats decided to make sure I started to get gray hair today. I've been trying to teach my cats not to go across the road. Well, my 10yr old thought it would be funny to teach his cat Dawn to get on the school bus with him. Well right there should give you a clue of what this story is about. And yes, if you want to laugh go ahead. Well, my son gets on the bus, Dawn see him and runs towards the bus. I run after Dawn, bus takes off and truck comes barrelling down the road. I scream and dive for Dawn, truck misses Dawn by a foot. So I pick him up scolding him like a child. Telling him I'm going to by a baby crib for him if he want to be outside he would be put in that.

Thennnnnnnnnnnn I look up and my other cat (name Mischief for a reasons)decides to climb a tree a jump to the roof of my house. Well, she can jump on to the roof, but she can't get down. Now I'm grounding one cat and putting him in his room to go get another cat off the roof. While the dog is sitting and watching the whole thing wagging his tail. I knew he was laughing at me. Needless to say both cats are fine, I now have a few more gray hairs.

But I did finish him and wanted to see what you thought.

Gardening Time

I call it the witch's gardening
I had just gone out today to purchase my seed potatoes. My husband wanted 20, I wanted a lot less, but we ended up with 10. Which I thought was a compromise. Each potato can give us any where from 5 to 10 plants. Plus pea about 125 seeds, green beans about 100 seeds, onion 3 different kinds we have approx 400 sprouts. This is just the start.

Can anyone guess what I'm doing this weekend? LOL

This is just the start we've even talk about 18 pepper bushes,10 tomatoes plants. I heard raspberry bushes and blackberry bushes are coming my way. That without the 8 x 16 ft strawberry patch. Fruit salad anyone.

I know my husband wants some other items. So we can make home made salsa.

I thought I would show some more photos of items I have finish for you to view.
