Are any of my friends signed up for, and using this application? If so, how do you like it? Does it take up a lot of the page? Are you actually making any money with it?

If you're not using it, why not? Give me the good, the bad, and the ugly, please. I'm considering doing this, but don't know if I've got the friends base to make it worthwhile.

Thanks.:)

 Lucy O'Donnell, the woman who inspired 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' has died.

Lupus is a bitch.

I never knew that song was named after a real person, or that she was just a child at the time it was written.

Well, the snow has finally arrived. Too late to keep the kids home from school, but it doesn't seem to be accumulating in the street, so they probably won't come home early, either. We'll have to wait and see if it keeps coming down today.

The forecast says it could snow off and on all day and overnight, but then dry out. Maybe we'll have enough to play in after school.:)

Presents are wrapped, cookies are baked, eggnog is chilled, and all we have to do is pack up the car and go.:)

I wish you all a Merry Christmas!

I've been looking for little TLaPD clues all over LJ today, but just now noticed that the little LJ user icon guy has a patch over his eye. What else have I missed. I know on my 'user info' page, my 'Friends' are listed as 'mateys'. Frank the goat is dressed like a pirate. The update button at the bottom of this post says 'update Captain's log'.

Hmmm....what else?

Inspired by [personal profile] kaleidoscopeeye and her wonderful quotes tonight:

Your hopes, dreams and aspirations are legitimate. They are trying to take you airborne, above the clouds, above the storms, if you only let them.
-- William James.

There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something better tomorrow.
-- Orison Marden.

Hope is passion for what is possible.
-- Soren Kierkegaard.

We had a great day at my Mom's house yesterday.:)  The kids played in the wading pool, and the adults lounged on the deck. We really enjoyed seeing the honeybees drink water from the pitcher fountain...

Look what I found in the very back corner of my yard...

They were trying really hard to get back under my neighbor's shed, where I think Mama was waiting. I helped one of them over the fence, after grabbing it with a towel. He did not like the idea of being helped, and tried to hiss, growl and bite at me. Cutest darn things I've seen in a long time.

First came the lightning, then the thunder, and then the wind picked up. That was just before the hail started...


Right after taking this photo, I dodged out to pull back the roses so they wouldn't be ruined. Then the rain mixed in...



and soon became too much for my gutters...



The wind died down immediately after, so it was safe to turn my computer back on. I do have a surge protector, but always turn off the computer during big thunder storms.

Up early to be ready to go and rent a chipper. Not a chopper, though that might be fun, but a chipper. We spent hours yesterday trimming trees and shrubs around the house. There are about 4 truckloads of debris in big piles around the place.

I took pictures, but haven't edited them yet, so they're still in the camera. I'll take more today of the chipping. It'll be easier to load the stuff into the truck, and more of it will fit when it's in tiny, bite-sized chunks.

It's supposed to be about 80 degrees today, and 91 tomorrow, so we need to get a move on. Have a great Sunday, everyone. Do what makes you happy.:)

Don't plug in the blender until _after_ all the ingredients are in it.

I would have taken a picture of the results of my folly, but it included red Kool-Aid, and I was afraid it would stain everything.:(

I was dumping ice from the bag into the blender, which already contained the Kool-Aid mixture. The ice bag bumped against one of the buttons, and you can imagine the rest.
