Crash on the left! Crash on the right! Stand up! Sit down! Fight! Fight! Fight!
One of the bigger pains of living in a metro area is traffic. Some places around here are worse than others. Like my fun stint in I-35 today. Sadly it’s usually backed up when I get out of class but today was especially fun. Three accidents all in the exact same spot. Two on the right shoulder and one on the left. And of course there was the rubberneckers sandwiched gawking in the middle. Good times!
My husband and his family own a towing company and auto repair shop. Today, before I went to school, I stopped in to get my oil changed. I walked up to see how everything was going and I found his new apprentice learning the ropes.

And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.” William Shakespeare~ Hamlet
Today we lost a beautiful friend. Cuddles was diagnosed with inoperable bone cancer that presented in her front ankle. We were told then that she could go at any time and we made the most of those months. Today she couldn’t do it any more. I am comforted to know that she is out if pain but I will miss her nibbles. Thank you for the time you were able to spend with us, Cuddles. You will be missed dearly.
I love camping. It rejuvenates me. Last year for my birthday the hubs bought me a fire pit to use while camping. It was a great gift however then the truck that I would need to haul all of my gear along with the big fire pit decided it wanted a transmission. So no camping with the fire pit for me. Good thing all of the rest if my gear fits nicely into my car.
Well, it is finally a nice enough day to assemble the pit and get rid of some of this wood we have laying around. It’s not fire wood in the typical sense. It’s not cut nicely. It’s not even logs really. It’s more simply the pieces that our trees prune off themselves. Yah, we have self-pruning trees. We’re cool like that. A storm rolls in and poof! Firewood laying all around. So today I’m trying to use some of that free wood to, of course, make room for more self-pruning.
In the midst of studying for tomorrow’s organic chemistry final I decided my fellow classmates needed some funnies to break up the stress.
This pic was for Mom and Dad’s anniversary a couple years ago but I thinks it’s the most recent one with my sister. Happy Siblings Day Kim!
