13 Recent Things That Has Happened in the Last Two Weeks.



  1. The dog ran into a truck. Don’t worry, the truck is okay. The dog is okay too, if a little shaken up.



  2. The morel mushrooms were affected by the freeze around Easter, so mushroom hunting has been disappointing this year. .



  3. A lot of people go out mushroom hunting this time of year. And I found a hunter on my property. It was creepy seeing a guy slowly moving through the forest on my land—but I knew what he was doing. We explained that we’d appreciate it if he’d leave a few for the children to find. .



  4. Since I got my ears pierced on my birthday in March, my 2-year-old daughter has been asking to get her ears pierced too. I don’t think so—not until she’s older.

  5. I finally started some veggie seeds. I know I’m a little late, but the weather earlier this month had me scared.


  6. I transplanted some hastas from across the street where they are growing like weeds to my front yard. Technically, they ~are~ growing on my yard, but I want them closer to my house and looking like I spent money on them. .



  7. My 2-year-old daughter seems to be very afraid of bugs and anything that looks like a bug. She runs away from them screaming “Bug bite me! Bug bite me!.” If she keeps that up, she’ll never want to get out of bed. Where we live, there are bugs everywhere! .



  8. On the other hand, my son wants to be an entomologist—a scientist who studies bugs. I think he might figure out a way to create cyber-bugs, since he’s into robotics too. .



  9. My husband is almost done with his doctorate degree in music composition. He passed his written with flying colors and he said his oral exam was fun. So right now, he’s Dr. Creekistan, ABD (All But Dissertation). .



  10. My friend and co-worker, Aimee the Red, is running in the Country Music Marathon in Nashville this Saturday. This is her second marathon. Last year she ran in the Rock-n-Roll Marathon in San Diego. We tease that she’s going to have to find a “Classical Marathon” or “Hip-Hop Marathon” for next year. Good luck Red!


  11. We're thinking about summer vacation now. How about a nice trip to Disney World? I've never been! But for sure we're going to drive to my hometown of Omaha, Nebraska to visit friends and family there. Anyone from Omaha? Watch out, 'cause here we come!


  12. I found out that an old friend of me and my husbands is a professor of music at Virginia Tech. We were able to connect with him again and he said the situation there at the school was the most difficult thing he's ever had to deal with in his short time of teaching. We gave him our support.



  13. Every evening when I come home from work, I notice that the “Siding Gnomes” have visited. I have never seen the gnomes myself, but cedar shingles are creeping up my house. Hopefully in the next few weeks the project will be done. And I’ll have to thank and pay the Gnomes.

Very interesting to see what you've been up to. :-) I'm glad to hear the dog is okay. Give him/her a hug from me!
My TT is a list of things I do on the computer.

You've been very busy!

I must confess, I feel the same way about bugs as your daughter does. ;)

Happy TT!
I'm sharing Florida sunsets pictures on my TT today. :) http://janne.cc/blog/?p=97

Interesting list. :-)

My 3 year old cousing (male) is also fascinated with bugs. If he's misbehaving, you can always stop him in his tracks by saying "Mikey, there's bug!"

At first I thought that said "sliding gnomes" and I was like...what are they doing, sliding up and down the house? Isn't that noisy? LOL!

We live next door to Tech. My husband's agency have been providing some counseling. It's been very hard. Blacksburg is a small little place sort of like a small town.

I'm glad you clued me in on what the photo was of.

Good update!
