wolffe: (sorry I missed church)
As we went by a nearby Church...

Jason: Hunh. That's funny. I've never seen a Roman Baptist Church before. You wouldn't think there'd be any given that whole John the Baptist thing. I mean, Rome didn't really treat them well. Although myth has it that he did give them the finger as he was killed.

Me: Honey, it's a Romanian Baptist Church.
wolffe: (goofy love)
We were watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade yesterday and Toby Keith (or some country singer in a very 70's fur collared coat) was singing on a float with a little girl by his side. She wasn't in the costume of the other float children, so I figured she must be a guest of the singer's.

I asked Jason if he thought she was his daughter or granddaughter. To which he replied, "wife".
wolffe: (shiny!)
First, the explanation of why I didn't ride Zane. If you've been a friend for a while, you'll remember this but the last time Zane was ridden (to my knowledge) was about 2 years ago and it ended like this. That post is friends locked, so if you aren't on my list, sorry. The video was removed and I failed to have the foresight to download it when I could. Alas.

So anyway, I knew that I would need to lunge Zane and check his gas, steering and brakes before taking off on any kind of ride. That would require me to move quite a bit, and with my level of fitness (extremely low), fat (extremely high) and the temperature (extremely high) that was just asking for heat stroke. As disappointed in myself as I was, I chose to leave that project for the fall when I will hopefully be in better shape, weigh less and it will be cooler.

It's certainly motivation for getting healthy. I'm working on a motivation board with pictures to keep me on track.

But this isn't a fitness and exercise post, it's a picture one. So here we go!


Can you see my grin? I am NOT direct reining him in a curb bit, I promise. I am holding him to a walk as he screams and bugles for his girlfriend in the paddock below us.

Just glanced over and Jason is looking at a website for "Frog Lube."

Yeah, that took some explaining.

It feels like forever since I posted here. I'm pretty busy today, cleaning carpets and for some godforsaken reason I decided to rearrange the living room, so pictures it is!




Taken by Jason (duh). That white thing is our target. Which ended up looking like...


This.




I can't tell you how many times I sat in the exact same place in the exact same tractor while Daddy worked. Neat that I can share that with Jake.








My Great-Granddad took cotton to be ginned over this bridge using a mule cart. It was built in the late 1800's and was still in use until a logging truck fell through the platform in the 1970's. (You can see where on the right hand side.) The structure is pretty sound, and if I win the lottery I'll have it repaired.

And I will leave you with...


Baby Redonkulous!

Jake actually went trick or treating with Jason. He came home with a pumpkin full of candy. :) I have pictures I'll put up later, probably tomorrow.

OMGOMGOMG

Jason just came home with my birthday present. A new laptop!!! Holy hell this thing is nice. I'm getting it all set up now. Whee! It's way early but he said he couldn't let it sit in his office for the next 2 weeks. LOL <3

Watching the sheep being sheared.

Yesterday we went to a Sheep to Shawl event at a local farm. Well, hour and a half drive local. It was neat. They showed the whole process of wool production from the sheep to the, well, shawl. Watching the guy shear was the neatest thing. They also had other local artisans - a lady doing pottery on a wheel, a bee apiary with bees in a display, a woodworker, a man weaving chair seats plus a bunch of ladies spinning/knitting in 1800s dress.

I didn't get all that many pictures, because it was crowded as hell, but I will share a few. More at flickr.

this is going to be OMG picture heavy. )

Okay, so for two years (!) Jason has been working toward the pinnacle* of his chosen online game, World War II Online. Now, having been cracked out on WoW, I understand a bit of game obsession. But the past 8 months or so have been really hard. It's been like a part time job for him, and his regular job has him coming home late most nights anyway. He was coming home and going straight into the game just about every night. I couldn't make plans to meet with friends on the weekend (that included him) because he was always having to go to some meeting or another. I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to go somewhere or do something and couldn't because he had some damn meeting. It's been the source of much angst and a few fights.

So anyway, he finally became Commander in Chief, and this past Sunday they won the campaign! Which means he can retire and I get my husband back! Woohoo!

So I baked him a cake.



This was my first time working with melting chocolate, and I made a few mistakes. Also, I have no idea how to make red icing. I put almost the whole thing of red food color in there and it was still pink.

There are only 4 stars because the game gliched and never gave him the 5th. His in game name is Alphie and it was the 53rd campaign. Oh, and he plays Axis, so it's German Chocolate. ;)

The funniest thing was that when he saw it, he said that I must be *really* happy he was done. Well, yeah, but I also thought his accomplishment warranted a cake.










*the game is structured like regular military, with a command structure. He worked his way up through the ranks from regular player into the officer corps and finally to Commander in Chief. You can't go any higher unless you're a developer.
