You know I love little fuzzy animals....

..but when I start thinking my (Irish) Native American name should be "Dances With Dust"..well things have gone a little to far..


So, remember the other day speaking about all those little things in life?

Well, yeaaah..sometimes it a stretch..a S------t-----r----e----t----c----h..

Last night, while trying to get a "fix" on our wire-less {why is it something you can't see can need fixing? And how do you know where it is to fix it if you can't see it?? Just wave your arms around in the air all wildly and say Abra ca dabra?? } ..

..I needed to get on the floor to get the serial number off of the router (?).. sounds like something you'd use in the garden..but what do I know..

That's when they attacked...the Dust Bunnies..


Um..then I tried to put a positive spin on it...if I wasn't crawling around under my desk, I
wouldn't have seen them..at least for a while...and I wouldn't have found the little box of decorative pins that was hiding by the router...whatever that is..

So after a particularity normal sort of OK day, dangerously close to being described as a blah day, I thought I needed the push of finding some of those "little" things..

{I will write tomorrow about 2 ginormously GREAT things that happened, thanks to Mother-in-Law and Melinda of http://melindasfabricfancies.blogspot.com ...)


..anyway..

#1. Found my perfect temperature..well, not mine....that would be 98.3 or something..no I mean outside...

51 degrees with sunshine


There you have it..it was beautiful..
perfect... fall weather..


#2. Discovered the extreme excitement of finding lost things I didn't know I'd lost..


#3. And while on the floor, I discovered I was sitting Indian-style with my legs crossed the way I couldn't have 51 pounds ago..oh happy day!


#4. In keeping with the whole "Native American/Indian" theme..I named myself..Dancing with
Dust
..which is another one of my favorites..likes Stands With Camera..


OK, so you can see..a stretch, but stretching is good for you..

So go out there and stretch today..you'll love the feeling :-)

Oh..and just LOOK at this hat...it's totally dreamy...

hmmmm,,,, when you get done corraling all those animals that hide under desks, you could surely come on over and give me a hand, no, not in clapping, but in corraling...
Way to go Colleen, you are still heading down that wonderful road of weightloss. Is it that weight machine you got not too long ago? I think you look fabulous, even if someone shaved your head on the sides! Have a great weekend

Hi Colleen. FYI: I have quit my blog. I just ran out of things to say. I decided I'd rather go the photo route with the state I live in and places I go sometimes. Hope on over if you'd like. I've let a few of my favorite people know. I can still read everybody from the Google Reader, though! :)

Great hat. Skye ate my cute Kermit frog, got a new one at Disneyland last month but it's not the same :( 51 pounds ~Hooray for you, oh how I wish I could lose that much! I am so happy for you. I actually took a picture just like the elephant one at Disneyland 20 years ago. I don't know where it is so I'm going to borrow yours. I'm going over to visit your MIL now. Have a wonderful weekend with the dust bunnies.

Question: How do you get the picture underneath your heading and description to fit the 'whole' box and now have the sides empty. My OCD is showing and that drives me crazy. See my new blog to see what I mean.

All My Yesterdays said...

OMG them dang Dust Bunnies multiply at your house too? Obnoxious little critters for sure! But then, without them I'd have no pets....
Good for you and the Indian sitting I see new clothes in your future (O:
