Chit Chat and thoughts

Chit Chat and thoughts

I'm just waiting to go to a group that I go to every Tuesday night so I thought I'd just post a drawing and say hi.

I finally got back in the pool today in spite of a bit of a sore throat, so far I'm no worse for the wear and I was feeling anxious to get back to it.
It's been raining like mad around here and Tanner's soccer practice was canceled because of it, sure hope it's not raining on Saturday morning when there is a game.
From what I understand it is the effects of La Ninja that we are experiencing. We have been dealing with drought conditions here in the high desert of Idaho for a number of years so at least the rain is a relief from that. It is such a frustration though, we're not used to it hindering our activities.

Part of our roof was blown off twice in the last week in high winds and rain storm, luckily we had it repaired quickly. Also I got my windows washed yesterday and am real glad the guy and I decided not to do the outside ones until there is a better window for dry weather. It is so nice to have both windows and blinds clean though, it makes me feel better anyway.

I've been drawing regularly since we got back from California, some strange faces appeared in my sketchbook while Paul, Tanner and I listened to The Goblet of Fire on CD this last weekend. I wasn't really trying to draw anything in particular and yet I guess faces are something that I do without giving it much thought. I suppose those who look at my journal know that though, don't you? My drawings are still the only art that I'm turning out these days and that makes me a bit sad. However, I have been doing some reading and concentrating on other things which I feel are vital at this time, I know I'll get back to drawing and painting in earnest when other things in life are in order.

I'm interested in simplifying our lives. Are any of you into doing that? I really don't know what all it will take but I know that it's a key to our lives being more meaningful than just living by the tyranny of the urgent. I've been told that setting up as many bills as possible to pay on line is a huge help, anybody know for sure? From what I understand it takes a huge commitment at first to get things in order and then it gets easier to work through the simplifying process. It seems like there are so many commitments and obligations in life that it will take a long time but you know, when I get old I want to look back and be glad about how I lived and what I spent my time on and right now I can't say that I'm where I need to be. I think both Paul and I are guilty of just shooting from the hip and going through the paces, we have plenty to be thankful for and to enjoy but we don't take the time to give it much thought. We've got 9 more years until Tanner is 18, then I'll be 60 and Paul will be 68, we want to be ready for that time and not be on the gerbil wheel still. We are committed to raising Tanner to the best of our ability but lots of the changes we want to make will be healthier for Tanner also, different values and time management to name two. So when I say I'm not doing much art you understand that it's because I'm clearing the way to do more art later. (I don't intend to wait until Tanner is raised, just need to get things in order now.) I know this will be an ongoing process and will be like swimming up stream in many ways, it will take self discipline and courage but I think it will be worth it. Like I say, not sure what it will actually look like but I know it won't look like our lives currently look.

Whew, well, I guess I'd better get moving, it's almost time to go to my group and it's something I really enjoy. Tanner is going with me lately because it's not much fun for him to go to roping practice with Paul mid week. The lady who has the group in her house actually includes a little lesson for the kids who come and Tanner just loves it.



So, here's what I wrote in my livejournal the day this photo was taken...

epic FAIL!

I had every intention of editing photos last night. I sat down and dowloaded the roughly 200 shots off of my camera onto my computer and even began sorting them. But I was rudely interrupted by my closet.

No, really! The hanging bar of my closet suddenly came crashing to the floor, startling me to bits and scaring the poor DannyDog into running right out of the room. *sigh* "Okay," I think, "I need to go to Home Depot right now and but a new support for that bar." And out the door I go.

I know what you're thinking... Home Depot is a large and annoying store, there must have been delays galore and that's why you didn't manage get to your photos. But no, gentle reader, that is not the case... It actually only took me about 20 minutes total to return home with the parts I required to tackle the repair.

What happened to the bar was this: the plastic pole socket had fallen off the wall, pulling out the single screw that had supported it. My solution was to purchase metal replacement parts instead of the plastic variety, which also happily had three screw-holes to use instead of just one. So, I replaced the side that fell and put the bar back up and returned my clothes to the bar. Joy! I can go back to my photo-editing in peace.

Of course, you can see this coming can't you? As soon as I sat down again, the obvious occured... The other support broke. Amidst much swearing and exclamations of "I should've known that would happen!" I took the second broken part down (pictured here) and attempted to put up the other metal replacement. I say attempted because this was the point in our story where my drill ran out of battery power. And the spare wasn't charged. Of course.

So I plugged in the battery charger and took the dog out for a walk. A lovely little intermission in this now-rather-longer-running-than-expected comedy of errors.

Upon returning home, I attached the new bracket and attempted to replace the bar. Once again, I say attempted... This is where I discovered that because the metal pole sockets were smaller (as in, not-as-deep-a-socket for the pole to set in) that the pole was just barely too short to sit comfortably and safely between the two. As you can likely suspect, much more loud cursing ensued.

Thankfully, I live on the campus of the school where I'm working now and have keys to the woodshop. So rather than give up in utter disgust and resign myself to just having clothes on the floor from now on, I headed over there and cut myself a small scrap of plywood to use as a spacer behind one of the brackets. No, there were no terrible mishaps or injurys in the shop (thankfully), but thank you for asking. I returned home and was finally was able to attach the bar properly and return everything to it's former glory of proper haning-ness.

And then the following morning my roommate's window blinds fell down.

I hate when we overpay the gravity bill.
