My Life is a Cartoon

Maybe my life is not a cartoon, but I do like to draw little cartoons about some of the things going on in my life.

Where is the rain?

Okay I asked my friend to come next week because it's susposed to rain all weekend. It still is susposed to, but it looks beautiful outside right now. I'm going out to mow the back yard, not sit and read as my picture shows ;-)

My yard is pretty dry

I did get out and mow the front yard, but I think I mostly kicked up dust. I thought with all the rain we've had lately it would be doing a little better. I'm afraid I let some of it die. Who knew that you still had to water in the winter. I'm going to do a better job on my garden.

What to do?

I wonder if I'm going to regret it if I don't mow my yard today. It' s been raining a lot and it's not over, but the yard is dry enough to mow if I get out there right now. It's not as tall yet as this picture ;-)

It's not looking any better

The weather seems to really want me to have a wet weekend. It may help my plants and roses, but I can't mow in the rain with an electric mower.


Weekend Company

I was hoping for a clear weekend but I guess I will have to settle for rain. Hopefully it will not be all day Saturday and Sunday.

I haven't even started my garden

I do have a little tree that I'm trying to keep alive and the ants got into the pot. How am I going to keep them out of my nice garden dirt when I start my garden.

I thought my roses were doing good

I thought to feed them and they have a lot of leaves, but then I saw just one street south of my house someone has roses on their bush. I just hope that because it's south of me, that they are in another zone and mine will bloom soon.

It's Saturday

Those big birds are back, they figured out how to reach the higher up feeding spots while standing on the rim. I'm going to either put wire around my birdfeeder or get one of those with wire around it. That lets the smaller birds in, but discourages the big ones. I also just put some food out on my back step. At least for right now, the little ones are trying to eat and maybe they will get some before being run off.


Grackles at the birdfeeder

This morning I saw grackles chasing off the sweet little birds that wanted to eat at my birdfeeder. I tried putting duct tape on the bottom, because they were sitting on the rim and eating. I think it worked because the little birds can eat out of the higher up places which are hard for the grackles to hang on to.

Cat Shelf

I put a shelf by the window today and two stools of different heights so the cat can jump up on one and then the other to get to the top of the shelf. That way he can look out at the birdfeeder that I have feed in for the birds. He loves to look out the window.

I've got to practice

because the champ will be coming to town weekend after next - I guess if I can't improve I can always hide the dart board

Lunch at Red Lobster

Were going to Red Lobster for lunch tomorrow. I've never been there and I hope they have something besides Lobster because I don't know how to eat it, and I'm not sure if I would like it.

Texas Two Step

Well I got a ticket, but I didn't even match one number. Oh well, at least I was able to get the ticket without breaking the door. Tomorrow it's susposed to be cold, but I didn't mow today so I may be out in the in the cold one day soon.

Future Plans

A friend is going to let me paint a door on a tree he has on his property. When I saw it I thought it would be perfect. I made a picture on my computer of what I think it might look like, but when I get a chance to actually paint it that may change a little. I've never tried anything like this before. I don't have many trees myself, and none that have a spot for a door on them.

Here is what I am hoping to make it look like when I do get to paint on it. I just hope it turns out good. I feel that it's important not to make a tree look bad. I love trees. I don't know how I would feel if I were walking through the woods and came accross this on a tree.


Garden Idea

This is my garden plan, I only want a little garden to start with because I'm not really a gardener. I heard it may get cold one more time, but I want to start the garden pretty soon.

Were having a thunderstorm

We needed the rain, and I really do love thunderstorms. I guess if I ever get struck by lightening I will stop liking the storms, but for now I still do. I didn't mow yet, but with the rain I will have to very soon. I don't want to be the kind of neighbor that people don't want to have living near them ;-)

Am I mowing the yard today?

Well no, actually I'm really tired and taking it easy, but if I don't get to it before weekend I will be out mowing Saturday or Sunday.

What I should be doing
What I am doing.



I'm not sure I'm going to get around to a cartoon today, but I wanted to save a spot.

Windy Monday

The wind blew over the recycle container and when I went out to go to work, I had to pick up trash that had blew in the yard first. I just hope not too much blew away.

It's a Windy Sunday

The girl put on a yoga tape and I did a little yoga with her, it let me see that I had gotten a little stiff and need to get back in my yoga class.

It was really windy today and I don't see how the birds keep from being blown out of the trees. When I was walking into church this is sort of what I looked like. I'm not at all sure how my hair looked after I got inside ;-) - anyway now I'm off to buy some food for the lawn, so it will be happy and I can mow it soon. I may get some flowers for the front yard while I'm out because The Girl says she will plant them.


The boy, The girl and I played a game called Personal Preference. She knew both of us a lot better than we knew each other and so would have won, but she didn't want the game to end, so she guessed badly. The boy ended up winning.

Does this mean I'll be lucky?

I went into 7-11 to get a lottery ticket for my friend and I and one of the doors had a sign that said use other door. I did, but forgot when I came out and used that door. It came almost completely off because the bottom hinge was broken off. I felt bad for the people who work there because they had to come to put it back.
Note: I didn't even get one number right, so I guess it's not lucky to break the door when you get a ticket.

Thursday Already

I've started to see little green leaves coming out on the trees. I can still just see the birds nest from last year and I hope that they will soon be filled with bird eggs. I guess that spring is about the most wonderful time of year, until I start to have to mow the yard ;-(

I woke up about an hour before the alarm and the cat seeing that I was awake brought out the wake up claws, but I still didn't get up until the alarm went off. I did think of some questions I need to ask today at work. I hope I can remember everything when I get there.

Wednesday Work

I brought work home with me today because tomorrow is a big day at work as far as my job goes. On the upside I did notice that the red buds are blooming on the way to work and there are also some white blooms on a tree that I don't know what is. There there are the little green leaves starting to come out on other trees. It's really nice to see. Even the yard is starting to have a little green in the grass, I was afraid it would die because it's been so dry.

I'm running late

And I never did get going very fast today. I guess it's okay to have a slow day every now and then, but I've got to get going a little faster.

Monday, March 06, 2006


Oh No is it Monday Already?

Well I got to get ready and head off to work. I think I left food on my desk from friday and I hope my office doesn't smell bad all day. I may take some air freshner with me just in case.

Sunday Morning

This morning when the cat work up he was sneezing, I hope he is not allergic to me. Also were trying not to feed him too much and so his food bowl was empty. I didn't want up and even "the claws of morning" didn't get me up so he had to bring out his teeth. He didn't bite down on me, but I did get up and give him a little food.

We had about 50 go and eat after Sunday School. This is the largest class that I've ever been in. Now I'm going to ride to the store with the girl and the boy, and put some gas in my car for work tomorrow.

Saturday Painting Class ;-)

I decided to work on a painting with three people in it. I haven't put any paint on it yet, I've got to get the drawing right first. I think it's going to turn out good though.

Watching TV together

Today I watched TV with my phone buddy. I've never seen the show before, but it was Deal or No Deal. Now I've got to figure out what I want to paint tomorrow for my art class.


I'm tired tonight

So I've just been sitting here sending unusual wedding dresses to a couple of people I know who are planning to get married. I sent them some I know they wouldn't want, but a few they might.

Doctor Visit

The Doctor visit went well, I hadn't been taking my blood pressure medicine and I didn't think I would get caught, but my pressure was high and so I had to fess up. I got three things for my cough and it's actually better already.

I liked her new office and there were no painting on the wall, so I'm thinking about going by and asking them if they would like some paintings for the walls - it would be a way to get my stuff seen. I guess it would just be sick people seeing them, but that's better than nothing. I would try to paint something healing and not something that would make the feel sicker.

The doctor gave a few suggestions and one was giving the cat a bath a couple of times a week. I can see how that might lower my blood pressure, but I don't really want to do it.

I want a truck

I've been thinking that I would like to have a truck. I've wanted one for years, but they cost more so I always get a car ;-(
