I Love Puzzles...

The "picture" is becoming clearer ;-)
I've been doing research this past week.

Lots and lots of thinking, sketching and calculating.
I'm working to figure out how best to utilize my little woodlot,
in a timely manner, to shape the life I want.

What I know for sure:
My resources are limited at the moment.
I wanna use my skills to earn income, on my terms.
Practical, useful and realistic is way more appealing then bling.

Day by day, things are taking shape :-)

~ I will share more on the topic, as things progress ~

Little update in the comments ;-)

The Ultimate Blog War Duel

A Notable Milestone

A few days ago, I got this little screen cap
off my blogger stats. That's a lot of Howdy Ma'ams! :D

Although, I think 'bout half of those
came from Ray, Bob and Billf... ;-)

Regular or not, thanks to everyone
who put in their "two cents worth" :-)


That Pussy's an Ass :P

~ A little Caturday Humor ~

Your cat may not always be plotting to kill you,
oh but he is plotting...

Good Morning!

I really like those colors :-)
Anyone know what they got growing there?

Friday Night Reds ~ Into the Woods!

Since I've been spending more and more time out there lately,
I thought these pretty redheads were a good fit, eh ;-)

Now it is ;)

It's been a long week. I never made it out to "Play" as my last post suggested. Had some car issues on the way out, which thankfully turned out to be very minor. But even minor things like a fucking loose connector can leave you stranded for a while. Especially when the "error messages" you get are random and unrelated ~shaking head~ Gotta love GM :/
Dare I say, conspiracy for extra dealership traffic?... :P

Anyways... Back in running order. Tools/toys are loaded up and ready for the next ride out, hopefully tomorrow.

And in the meantime, since it is Friday... How 'bout some Reds ;-)

Check back in a few, and have an awesome Friday!

Finally Done!

Tax Time... Ain't it fun... :/
Gotta love phone tag with "foreign" people???

Yippee!! At one point, I was on a chat thingy for the program I was using, attempting to work through a software glitch. I waited over an hours while the following four lines alternated about one per minute....

One of our Customer Specialists will be right with you.
All agents are currently busy. Please stand by.
An agent will be with you in a moment. Thank you for your patience.
The next available Agent will be with you in a moment.

Needless to say, the screen was full of shit :P

Then I get the message:
Onisokonikumen S: How may I assist you?

Oh great, I thought, and proceeded to write out my issue.

Then he answers:
Thank you for your patience. It will be another moment.

Several minutes later, he comes back with... 
Looking into it. 

Then I get this fucking message:
Thank you for contacting us. You may now close this window.
Your session has ended.

Like seriously!?
What kind of fucking customer service is that??

After more bullshit, I finally got to the nitty-gritty of it.
And I have to say it was really easy, compared to the previous years.

Looking at a bigger picture here, if feels so weird to do these "simple" things, not thinking about how it could affect EVERYONE else. To live just for me, and my daughter of course as she is part of me. I just can't remember ever having this feeling.

And I'm loving it more and more everyday :-)
