Love is like a heat wave, baby

It's warm here. Too warm. My 300 pounds of meat for the dogs, which is more like 200 now, is thawing. We don't have the freezer space for it. It's never this warm in November. It's been above freezing for several days now. My meat is soggy. I've been giving it out to the dogs like candy. I need to get rid of it before it goes bad. The skiff of snow we had is disappearing quickly. I'll have to go back to training with the four-wheeler. I'm pretty disheartened about this heat wave. It's ruining everything. Sigh. Sob. Sob. Sob. Snort. Sniffle.
We went to Thanksgiving dinner at the Engmans last night and it was a great time. Really amazing food and a movie on the big screen after dinner thanks to a borrowed projector. Lots of kids and dogs.
I'm getting lots of work these days, so much so that I'm actually stressing over looming deadlines. I haven't felt that in a while...it's kind of nice.
Peace.

Roy didn't want turkey. He opted for some eggs.



Look how happy I am. Short of my mum's, this was the best turkey dinner ever.

Eric and baby Ella.
Rachel and baby Alex.

Well Gus, we're all pretty disappointed, but I'm sure we can get over it. Just keep that dictionary close by and we should all get along just fine, ok?

the lustre of thanksgiving is starting to fade and like this blog post, will be a distant memory, superceded by christmas dinner and new year's jackassery and valentine's day schmoozing. who is this "gus" that you speak of? my name is lexar-7 and i am the cobstominate extroidinaire of planet mongeezerblub in the blogosphere. you can call me "sir".

akbushbaby said...

Um, yeah.
No.
How about I call you "Piss Off."
And you can call me "The girl who kicked you in the shin the first time she met you in person."
