Finders Fee

Cowboy buys and sells for a living. He will look for car, trucks, windmills, you name it for other people and will charge a small finders fee for buying something or a small fee for selling something for someone else.

This week he found a sweet, 2006 Grand Prix, fully loaded, super clean car with 44, 000 miles for $8500 for my niece. He was teasing her about a finders fee.

Today, my sister was her along with my mom, other sister and niece. My sister tried to give Cowboy some money for finding the car. But Cowboy wouldn't take it.

He told me later he thought of the perfect thing to say only a little late. He said he should have said, "I don't want a finders fee from the Page family, because I already found the best thing about the Page family, MJ."

Craft Show's

One of my favorite things to do in the fall, is to go to craft shows. I get great ideas and find great things to buy. A craft show that I went to a couple of weeks ago, I found a booth that was selling charms and beads. I found a couple of charms that I loved and then picked out 5 beads and the lady made the necklace for me right on the spot. Here is the pics of it. I love it.

Today, I went to another craft show and got my idea for Christmas presents for all my friends and family. Can't wait to get started on them. I'll post pics when I make them.

Man's Room

So we finally got DT (the deer) home from the taxidermy shop. We named him DT for his drop tine. We then had to re-arrange the man's room. Cowboy is very proud of his deer and is looking forward to shooting his son this winter.

He looks really good and his eyes are so lifelike.

Here's the view from the top of the stairs. DT is on the left and Bucky is on the right. Yes those are antlers all over the place. We spend most of the winter in the man's room and all summer in the living room upstairs.

The coyote skins were moved over the couch and lined up all in a row. It really feels like a man cave down there now. I thinks it's better all in one room and not all over the house.

Cooking for my Hubby

It seems like the last couple of weeks, I have turned over my cooking duties to my hubby. I love to cook. And so does he. Many nights, he will take over since I have worked all day. And I have let him do this. I love being pampered.

This week, I got back in the kitchen--well, at least, two nights this week, I have gotten back in the kitchen. It felt good. I love to cook. I especially love to cook for my hubby. I think I'll make a commitment to cook at least one night a week.

Oh, I even cleaned up and did the dishes. I usually let him do that also. Not going to guarantee that I will do that all the time.

Little girl in pink

Cowboy and I went out for dinner and on our way home, we catch the neighborhood teenager making out in the car with his girlfriend. Cowboy slows down so the head lights are shining in the car. He then drives by slowly and honks and give the poor kid the thumbs.

Cowboy said it reminded him of the saying, "She the little girl all dressed in pink, she's the one that made my finger stink". To which I replied, "You would know". He said they were all stories, just stories.

He said, the guys would sit around the break room and say, "tell us a story Whitey" and he would tell stories about making his finger stink.

He's a dandy.

I'm spoiled especially when....

My Cowboy spoils me all the time. But he spoils me especially when it that "time of the month".

I think that he is afraid of period time.

I also think that he's thankful that he's not a woman and doesn't go through this monthly.

Whatever it is, I'll let him spoil me. He fixes my dinner and lets me eat it in front of the TV. He lets me skip the gym in the morning. I get out of washing the dishes.

Life is grand except, cramps, emotions, and all the glory that goes with mother nature's blessing.

Goings Ons

Life is just moving along and it seems like it's just moving faster everyday. So here's my goings ons as of late.....

1) Watched my nephew play in a golf tournament today (actually I only got to watch 9 holes). I'm so proud of him. He is an outstanding young man and has so much in store for him.

2) Call me Madam President for one more year. The Home Owner's association had their annual meeting today and I was re-elected.

3) My wonderful hubby got my hot tub up and going and I've been visiting it frequently.

4) Again the hubby shot his first deer of the season, which meant that I had lots of work to do. But we now have 8 lbs of deer jerky and 25 loaves of summer sausage. He thinks he will shoot two more.

5) The deer from last year is now safely and proudly on the wall in the mans room. It really looks like a mans room now.

6) I've hired a new team leader at work and am loving her and the fact that she is taking on so much supervisory stuff. It makes my job much easier.

7) I'm still worried about my Sadie. She is getting some really big fatty cyst and she is still falling up the stairs. Her eating is getting some better.

8) My mom is not doing well. She doesn't sound well. She doesn't look well and she's not making good decisions for herself.

9) I'm loving this fall weather. I wish it could stay like this for 6 months.

10) I've been doing several things by myself lately and getting a taste of my former independence. Although, I'm loving it, I still like doing lots with my Cowboy.

11) I designed a great necklace at the craft fair this weekend and had it made. I put a pic up soon.

12) My feet have been killing me lately (actually my right arch). It seems like I always have some part of me hurting.

13) I really need to be losing weight. I get really frustrated that no matter how hard I try, the scale doesn't like me.

Not Like my younger days

Do you remember when you were young and could go out on a Friday night and party until dawn? Do you remember being so excited to hang out, drink and flirt? Meeting people, mingling, talking about nothing was considered a thrilling evening.

So the thing is, I know that I used to do that. But for the life of me, I can't remember why I used to do that. I'm sure I enjoyed it or I wouldn't have done it so often.

Now, I almost dread the thought of going out. It's almost a chore. I love being at home. I love just hanging out with people I know and being casual and laid back. I love flirting with my husband.

Isn't it funny how things change in your life and what you did in the past only seems like a distant memory.
