Today was to be my day that Roy spent with the kid, away from the computer.
Well I did get to torch an hour more then usual but that is it so far.
did take my threat for tomorrow because there is things I would like
him to do and I would like to take pictures of my beads and pieces I
made without Quintons' help.
We shall see.
The dog went home yesterday and was very excited to see her owners. I was excited to see the in-laws too.
I thought I would show you some beads I made. Yes I do make beads, it is just to do something with them.
Click the thumbnail for bigger picture.
The first picture is just the new colors one of the companies put out. Some of the colors are pretty yucky.
This picture is of the beads that I have made so far this month.
Maple flag is happening on the base here, it is kinda like top gun, where other countries come to fly and do mock fights.
yesterday was open house for maple flag and I took Quinton, there were
planes from the countries and you could even go into some of them. I
even got Quinton to go into 2 planes, he did not go very far into them
but he did. He did find the vehicles more impressive then the planes,
especially the truck with the forks. I did not take my camera so I did
not get any pictures but maybe it was for the best because we did not
stay very long. Just enough to look at the vehicles and eat the free
pancakes and Quinton ate most of them.
The dog is going home
either today or tomorrow. Yeah. Did I tell you I am pregnant and the
smell of dog makes me sick, so the poor dog just did not understand why
I would not pat here too much or let her sit beside me.
Did I tell you what the dog did to Quinton thursday?
last trip with the dog to the park was a disaster because Shelia saw
another dog in a persons yard and she went racing to meet this dog and
blew the leash apart in my hand. I thought never again. How do you
control her and keep an eye on Quinton.
Well Quinton wanted to go on
the slide, so I thought okay again we will try it and I did have
another leash that I hoped was better.
So we played and the dog
yipped at us because I had her tied down so that I could play with
Quinton. And as we are getting ready to go home, I go to untie the dog
from the tree. Well that same dog she saw last time was out and Shelia
did a 180 and ran around Quinton and gave him really good rope burn on
his ankle and part of the other foot. I had to step on the leash to
stop her from pulling so that I could help Quinton get untangled and up.
Let me tell you I wanted to spank that dog for hurting Quinton, but it
is not my dog and there was a little girl with us then too. And I
don't need the humane society after me.
So I do have self
control and it is hard to discipline an animal that is not yours
because I know George and Cathy treat her like a human kinda.
Did I tell you that Shelia made Roy not want a dog?
and Roy is working nights so he is sleeping during the day and with
Quinton and I being out of the house to go to Maple flag open house,
the dog barked and whined the whole time we were gone and then she went
postal when we got home. I feel sorry for Roy because she would not
The hard thing with this,is it had made Quinton and I
house bound because we could not go to the play group and leave her
while Roy slept.
Okay I think I ranted enough today.
We did have a good time a Maple flag so something good did come out of today.
the trip was good and Quinton loves going to the farm because there is
all the tractors and quads to sit on, as long as they are not running.
And the sand pile in front of the house. My mom told me he even went
into the chicken coop to give some grain to them and he went to pick
eggs. Mom told me the first egg he dropped in the pail but after she
told him to be gentle, he was. I am impressed considering last year he
would not come within 10 feet of the chicken coop and now he is going
I bought some new colors of glass at Bedrock and today my
other shipment came in with the clear and basic colors I needed. So
much for not buying anything for the business for the year.
I don't think today I am going to get the chance to play with the new colors but hopefully tomorrow I will be able to.
Today Quinton and I are making a quick trip to Edmonton.
lampworkers guild has a meeting tonight with demos, so Baba and Guido
are going to babysit while I go and then we will come home on
Wednesday. Roy gets the dog HEE HEE.
Well I think Roy has decided against getting a dog because we are dog sitting right now and it is something.
barking over any other dog in the area or people on the sidewalk, she
barks if you leave her and then don't acknowledge her the moment you
The begging for food at the table ( and we are not giving her any food from the table).
I am pregnant right now and dog smell does not agree with me.
I took her to the park with Quinton and she broke the leash I had, all
because she saw some other dog behind a fence and had to go see it.
She broke the leash.
I promise not to torture her, I will just try to ignore her when she starts to get on my nerves.
Oh and yeah caught her today digging up my garden that I JUST planted.
And we have not even dealt with the dog poo.
night Quinton came out of his room hysterical because he heard a bee.
Well we went in there and looked all over, Roy did find a mosquito
caught between the screen and the window. But Quinton would not go
back to bed, we even took turns laying with him but 2 minutes after we
got up he would run out crying "bee". He even came out with Murphy and
a blanket to lay in the hallway he was so tired. Finally I just picked
him up and put him in our bed and left him, and bloody hell if the kid
did not finally go to sleep, alone in our bed.
We did figure out that he may have been hearing the motorbikes in the neighbourhood and was thinking they were "bees".
night he did the same thing with less dramatics and again the Murphy
and a blanket in the hallway but I picked him up and took him to his
bed, telling him that "covering with a blanket will protect you from
the bugs" and it did help him go to bed.
I am thinking of
making a quick trip to the city this week, I am just trying to figure
out how to handle the dog. Roy is working nights so the day he starts
I would have to come home early to see to the dog.
brother-in-law finally got his bi-pass surgery and it went really well
after all the concerns there were. I am glad it went well and relieved
that he did not have to wait too long or been in the OR. and then
bumped out. But the work now that he has to do to get better. And I
want to go see him but with Quinton always having kooties(like a cold),
I don't want to get him sick, while he is still in the hospital.
Did I ramble enough?
I planted potatoes in the garden, actually Quinton helped. I still
have a box of mixed seed potatoes left, I will probably make a poster
to giveaway the rest of them, and I really don't want to compost them
if I don't have to. This
weekend it is suppose to be hot so I am glad I planted the potatoes
while it was a litter cooler. Hopefully with Roy being home this
weekend, I can get some more torch time or even jewelry making time.
I cleaned the beads I made a couple of days ago and just made ladybugs and bees. Just to get the time to take pictures of them.
is the start of dog watching for the week. I don't look forward to the
dog poo picking up thing but I am sure Quinton will like the dog, when
it is not licking his face.
Well I hope you all had a peaceful Mother's day.
The weather got chilly later in the day but we still barbecued and the ribs where great. Yeah I am craving ribs right now.
had fun at the park today because there were to little boys playing
there too. Some days he does not want to do anything with other kids
and then every once in a while he is happy they are around and not
I never got the chance to clean any of the beads I made today but I can only hope to have the time to do it very soon.
had ordered me flowers today but for some reason they canceled the
order. I am not to heartbroken because in exchange he is going to buy
me some glass that I need to order.
I really like that present.
I do like flowers but I like them more on the spur of the moment or
just out of the blue. Most moms get flowers for Mother's day.
Can a leopard change its' spots?
am ticked at the husband today because I asked him if I could torch and
he would watch Quinton. Well he agreed and I did but when I finally
came into the house, Quinton was watching cartoons and Roy was on his
game. That ***** game. It was a nice day, I figured Roy would go down
to the park for some "Whee-ee"(slide time) and it did not happen. I
did not get back into the house until 5:30pm and I had to make supper.
Next time I am not going to make supper.
So the day was a
bust for the kid, tomorrow Roy promised not to go on his game(we will
see), and I am hoping it will still be nice to play more outside.
I did make some good looking beads today and hope to have some time soon to clean them and do something with them.
The show went really well this past weekend in Edmonton and it was nice to visit with everyone I could.
had fun at the farm because my parents have a pile of sand by their
front door, so he spent most of his time out on the sand. I went and
bought him a sand box and some sand for home. We set it up Sunday
afternoon, and Quinton played in it and then this afternoon he was in
it again. I think we will be spending a lot of time in the backyard
and in the sand box.
The weekend was a little cold in Edmonton and I
brought some of that weather home with me. So we are getting half a
day of sun and then it is getting cloudy with a little rain, makes me
jealous when you get weather that is a nice 70 F (21C).
Well I am just finishing packing up to go to Edmonton to go to the craft show on Saturday.
was a nice day, I walked to Curves and then I turned over the first
part of my garden with hopes that next week I can plant the potatoes
that are growing in the closet.
It is 10pm and I have some more pictures of some jewelry to take before I can go to bed.
