My Week

Howdy y'all!
I'd go through the "oh, my poor abandoned blog - cobwebs growing in the corner, tears in the eyes of my ardent followers, spare space on the Google servers, et cetera, et cetera..." routine, but every post would look like that; so, apologies aside, here's what's been going on. First, an apology to Heather. I saw your comments when you posted them, but I didn't publish them. I knew I would forgo posting for quite a while so I figured it better if everyone thought I didn't check my blog. Y'know as opposed to thinking I was ignoring everyone. Which I actually was. :(
I have been working ten and a half hour days up in NY, but I have been spending plenty of time on the computer. Can I get some feedback on here to see if anyone still reads my blog? And if you do, is it interesting? Funny? Boring? Narrow? ....
You're probably all dying for some pictures, so here they are! :D
Dad installing the landing on the stairs.

Mark.

My closet. I floored it, so I took this picture.

Mr. Moore and I did this floor.

Mark and me working on the mudroom ceiling.


This is what you get when you tell Tasha "sure, you can look at my pictures."

Mark. What he does every time he's not moving. :D

I reorganized the truck. Considering the fact that I really don't know where most stuff goes, I don't think I did too bad.

A stove that my buddy and his dad built. Ain't it a beauty?


Windmillville. Actually, Chateaugay. Both of these pictures were shot from a moving vehicle and hardly do justice to the view.
Gotta be up at 5:30 so I need to go to bed. :D Goodnight y'all!

  1. Thank you for the pictures :). I always love to see what you and Dad are doing!
    Lets see .. do I read your blog :)? Yes, it needs more pictures,to be updated more,less pleading for comments :), and little less sarcastic (I figured I could say that cause you know I love you :)). I do enjoy your blog! Grace would like you to put the Bates singing on the sidebar so she doesn't have to spend too much time looking for it :).
    Off to enjoy a wonderful day together as a family!! Been looking forward to it all week!!!!
    Glad you are home!!
    Love,
    Mom

    1. I do know you love me, Mom. ;) Also, I really try to cut down on the biting humor. Guess I gotta try more. :D

  3. Just saw your Google+ posts from today...I love Risk!!! Of course, whenever I play with my brother, I always die:) LOL I'm not very "strategically" minded, but I still love the game. Also, the Rice Crispy snowmen are cute. Great idea! Hope you had a great day!

  4. Yes I'm reading! The bad thing is, I use Google Reader, so it isn't always convenient to comment right then, and later I forget. So here it is, my comment...

  6. Wouldn't a "Cease Fire" card in Risk take the fun out of the game? Never heard of that before, but I guess I haven't seen the updated version. But, after all, isn't the fun of the game dying...that is, when you play with your older brother who loves strategy??? Can't you tell I'm terrible at it??? LOL

      They added a Cease Fire card to Risk?! They're ruining the game :-( The old falling apart version always has been and always will be the best.

    2. LOL I totally agree with you:) I always love falling apart!!!

  7. Well, it looks like you had a nice, busy week.:) I got a (female) friend like Mark (grabs a phone and texts whenever she's not in action) Your work is looking great!
    P.S.
    1. I have not read any blogs in a long time, so I can't say I've read it in a while, but your posts are . . . interesting.
    2. But I do like to read it when I am in the mood for a good old laugh:) In other words, my brother and I both think your blog is funny.

  8. I saw your "Show Your Desktop Friday" thing on Google+, and thought I'd upload a pic of mine to my Picasa Web Album. Here's the direct link to the photo:

    2. I just uploaded it via my Desktop Picasa...and it sent you an "invite" to the picture. Let me know if it works. I've never done it before:) I guess I could just make it public...LOL That's why it wouldn't show up for you:)

  9. All the snow looks like fun:) Wish y'all could join us for snowmobiling and sledding in the next two months...I'm excited! BTW, I LOVED the FB picture on your Google+ page. Too funny! Have a blessed night (or wait, is it evening?...just ask Joe...LOL)!
