A Quote By Woodrow Wilson

If you will think about what you ought to do for other people, your character will take care of itself.. Character is a by-product, and any man who devotes himself to its cultivation in his own case will become a selfish prig.

A Mom Quote Over Cookies

"Living by basic good-mothering guidelines enables a mom to blend the responsibilities of parenthood with its joys; to know when to stand her ground and when to be flexible; and to absorb the lessons of the parenting gurus while trusting her own inner voice when it reasons that another cookie isn't worth fighting over, or that her child won't suffer irreparable trauma if, once in a while, Mom puts her own needs first."
Sue Woodman



My Day So Far... Looking at old crochet patterns that I have from the 80s!

Further Update on Lawn Mower

I told you a day or so ago that we think that we might have wrecked the sit down lawnmower. Well, hubby managed to get it into the shed... and we have a ridiculously long driveway and sure enough, one of the tires has completely seized up. Have no idea why but tomorrow, he is going to take it apart to see if it can be fixed. If not, I guess we are going to have to call someone to fix it. There is not telling how much that is going to cost. :(   There goes any shopping trips for fun stuff.

Not liking how this month is starting out.  Hubby surprised me with a trip to the dentist yesterday. He knows how much I hate cleanings so he told me at breakfast.

And oh, I didn't mention the fact that we got locked out of the house today. I closed the back door and the locking mechanism just fell into place. Hubby drove in 5 hours later. We were starving. All we had was breakfast... and a very light one at that. I wonder what else August has in store for us??


My Day So Far... See above...  I think that I hate gardening even more than I did yesterday

Today's Quote By Oscar Wilde

 "When the gods wish to punish us, they answer our prayers."
Oscar Wilde


My Day So Far... Better now... Locked out of the house from 10:15 until 3:30.  Have never been sooo bored or so hungry in my life.  Key is be hidden as soon as I think of a good place to hide it.

Update on the Lawnmower


 Hubby is home and we managed to get the lawnmower out of the ditch and then pushed it all the way back to the garage. There is no neutral on the machine and all of us were exhausted when we finally pushed it in. We have one LONG driveway.  I think that it's good and broke!! 

Just another reason why we weren't meant to live in the country. So far, we have broken two lawnmowers, one tick bite and way too far from the city.

Okay... the deer we will miss. :(  But that is it!

Not A Great Way To Start Our Day

 Darling daughter decided to surprise her father by cutting the grass. Unfortunately, she managed to get it stuck with the two front wheels in the air and it's too heavy to get it... unstuck. We will have to wait until hubby gets home.

We also had a bit of an explosion with a lot of smoke pouring out of the engine... not sure what we did to it?? OH OH...
