I hate mosquito's

I really hate those little flying mosquito's! I was trying to do some much needed yard work on Sunday, it was actually cool for a Sunday afternoon in July here in Georgia. I got attacked by several of them. They bit my face, arms, shoulder, ankles, and chest. I was so itchy I had to take a Benadril which made me sleepy :(, so I didn't get my yard done. Tonight we took my sister out to dinner, she is moving to Arizona tomorrow, when we got home we let the dogs outside, I sat there watching them (the little one tries to escape through the gate) and got bit again. On the face, the forehead, ands and arms. I must be a magnet for these things

Man I was really tired

I was wiped out from yesterday. I got up around 5:45 am and made coffee and egg salad sandwiches for my hubby to take to work. Cleaned up the kitchen a bit straigtened the pillows and afghans on the couch and was back in bed by 7am, I slept till 10am right through the alarm clock and everything. I did get my groceries bought (I have to work again tomorrow) and I made a stop at the fabric store for some white ribbon to finish a pillowcase dress I made for hubbies grandnieces first birthday. I ended up buying fabric to make 3 more aprons and for my sister to make her puppy and my puppy their own blankets for winter. Now I am headed to bed have an 8 hour day tomorrow :(

Tech stuff


Tired today

I'm tired today. Today was truck day at work and we had to get all our freight up. It has been hot here in Georgia and hot in the store. They had the AC people out to look things over and they found a few problems which they "fixed" Tuesday but to me and several of my co-workers it still feels hot. We mentioned it to the manager and he said Home office couldn't detect any more issues with the AC but he agreed it was still warm in the store. My suggestion is that they come and do truck with us and then tell us it isn't hot in the store. I'm just happy I have the day of tomorrow. I'm going to go grocery shopping, get my nails done and come back and sew. I have so many ideas floating around in my head, have to let some of them out:)

We are getting thunderstorms today. We spent all day yesterday watering the grass because it needed it so and now it is raining. Oh well a little extra water won't kill the grass.

Okay this isn't the best picture on the planet but here are some pics of my new puppy Leia.
I bought some scissors to clip her face a bit so we could see her eyes. Will post some better ones once I get some more.

Happy Fourth of July everyone !!!

We added a new member to our family yesterday. I got a little Shih Tzu named Leia. Yes after the princess from Star Wars. Couldn't help it :). My eldest dog is named Chewy ( the boys wanted to name him Chewbacca but I said no and shortened it), we also had a cocker named Solo after you guessed it Han Solo. So it only seemed right to name our new baby after the Princess. We also have a cocker named Einstien, my hubby always wanted to have a dog named that after watching the Back to the Future movies.

She is cute and going to need a lot of brushing :0. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to let her have the long flowing hair of her breed or keep her in a puppy cut. She doesn't seem to mind getting brushed right now but you never know about later as she gets a bit bigger. We will have to see. Right now the job is to housetrain her and teach her not to chew up stuff. She also will have to learn to leave the big guys alone sometimes but they seem to be able to handle that job on their own. A growl from them sends her on her way when they don't want to be bothered.

Well I have the next 2 days off and my house needs cleaning. Will post pics of the new puppy in a day or two.
