It's 5am and I have been awake for about an hour, having trouble sleeping.
I can hear Dad making coffee like he does every morning, loud. He grinds the beans on the same wall as my bed.
A normal day is pretty slow around here.
I have my work-out every day, doing my yoga.ballet stretches and dancing to some cool tunes on my ipod. I usually also take about 2 mile walk to the groovy historical post office. In my family, it's called the hysterical post office.
Because things are so slow, everyone is nosey and gossipy. Some guy is stealing the ditch water, a store owner lost his store because he dumped his wife for a girlfriend and the orange crops are in danger due to the drought. Can Woodlake survive?
We have been watching a new show called Heartland which is from Canada. It's pretty good, but soap opera acting.
My mom is all into it, she gets emotionally involved with the characters and will defend them, or explain their true feelings. haha
My Dad and I just roll back our eyes and smile.
I'm going to be gone most of the morning shopping. It's a 45 minute drive to the big stores, Wal-Mart,
Winco and Costco.
Yesterday, I got some great footage of a blue jay stealing peanuts from the deck. Ha ha It was fun to watch him fly away and hide his peanut.
Then, he would plan to come back and be sneaky, as we were all sitting out on the deck with dogs. He would do a fly by first, check it out, then into the nearby tree hopping on to the end of the branch, then on the desk to the far left, then hop quickly over and grab his peanut. Ha ha
Pretty smart bird.
Plus there is a large fake owl right there, its suppose to scare them away.
There's bird poo on it. haha That's how scared away the birds were. ha
Dad is eating his cheesecakes that I made him. I made 4 sugarless cheesecakes and now he is in heaven having cheese cake for breakfast every morning.
I know, he thinks cheesecake is a breakfast item. ha
My mother seems to be doing really well with chemo, if that is possible. She is happy and always chipper about things. She has not lost her hair, but her appetite is gone, but then she has sudden cravings. So, whatever she wants, she gets, I'll go.
Last night I played Moo cow with the neighbor's cows. That never gets old.
I Moo this awful sound and they answer me. Some poor cow thinks I am it's friend, maybe a lonely cow wants me to be it's girlfriend. I hope it is not waiting for me. Ha ha Mooo ooo
