Barnful of Puzzles!

While browsing around some Albums in plastic canvas groups I’m in on Facebook, I came across this darling barn.  In which 4 different animal puzzles are stored.

I have two of the four finished right now, the others are on their way.  To the left is a pig… doesn’t he look full of mischief?  To the right is a chicken… she looks like she’s ready to chase some chicks.

Uncompleted are a cow and a horse.

Spring? Is it really on its way?

I’ve seen so many weather reports lately about snow, snow and more snow… in places where its supposed to be warming up.  Wrecks on highways in whiteout conditions… nobody’s fault but the weather.

One picture showed a trucker’s trailer crumpled like an aluminum can… icy highway, and he was on the shoulder… someone drives along side him, and the whole side of the trailer gets peeled off.   Who’s fault would this be?  The guy on the shoulder, the guy driving by?  Neither… the weather, since the highway they were on was icy.

Drive safe out there, folks… and stay warm!

Valentine’s Snow…

First snow I’ve seen all year, where I’m at.  Just two days before Valentine’s Day.  Isn’t this weather supposed to be in late December or January?

Wintertime… What Fun…

Yes I’m being sarcastic.  So far the only fun thing I’ve seen about winter is being able to play in white fluffy powdery snow.  Trouble is, that kind is rarely around for long.

Snow has this nasty habit of melting… then freezing again… turns to slush, mud and ice.  Depending on the area someone’s in, it might not stick around long enough to do more than mess up windshields and make the streets mucky for a few hours.

And cold… If its too cold, it doesn’t snow at all, it sleets instead… and sleet is what’s more commonly known these days as freezing rain, or raining ice.  Either that or no precipitation at all, just bone chilling cold.

Makes me glad I’m not living under a bridge.

Nomad Life Part 4: The Holidays

How does one celebrate holidays living in a vehicle, with space at a premium?

A tiny tree, maybe, sitting on a dash… or an ornament suspended from the rear view mirror?  Is it new every year, or a gift held for ages, lovingly tucked away in a drawer in memory of times past?

And gifts… are gifts exchanged at all?  Perhaps small necessities to make life a bit easier, or brighter… something to commemorate the giver?

Does the vehicle dweller in question live alone, or with a significant other?  How about pets?  They’re part of the family too, of course.

Nomad Life: Part 3 – Vehicle Dweller or Homeless?

Do you live in a pickup, or a van?  Maybe a motor home?  Something other than a fixed structure like a house or apartment?  Depending on your local laws, you could very well be considered to be as homeless as someone curled up on the sidewalk without any shelter at all.  Heck, in some places even people living in transient motels are considered homeless.

Wintertime is a bad time to be without shelter, of whatever type.  My joints still hurt 25 years later, after a winter outside without blankets.  No vehicle, mind you; groves of trees and stands of grass were what my ex decided were appropriate places to sleep.  Always moving around, no place the same two nights in a row.  There’s more than one reason he’s an ex.

I would rather have had a van back then, or even a small car.  A home of some type, out of the elements.  A way to get somewhere warmer, out of the cold and snow.  Or heat, in the summer.  Though I could easily have done without the ex.

Christmas Shipping Deadline

The last day I’ll ship something ordered for Christmas is the 15th of December.

There are always shipping delays of one type or another this time of year, and I want the packages to have the best chance of making it to their destinations in time for the holiday.
