Intervention by a friend

Some of my friends have taken to giving me a blogging intervention. Lisa has started the hinting and sarcastic remarks. I am sure Jenny has some sort of torture device waiting for my this weekend. And Vickie Close is now sending me material I couldn't possible pass up. In June at Scott's clinic Vickie was there taking pictures. I ordered a couple of prints from her. They have not arrived yet but in the meantime she sent me these.

Thanks Vic your the best.

It was all his idea

Ok, I had planned on posting a picture of kyle that I took while furniture shopping this weekend. But it seems to have been deleted by accident. He made it through the front door of the first place and then got board and started talking on his phone. After the first place he suggested we go to the city and look at furniture. I said "really honey after one place they all start to look the same" So off we went after the third place Kyle's eyes were glazed over and he almost walked into the traffic.
Good news readers I am going for acupuncture and Chinese medicine on Thursday to get over my blogging funk.
This weekend Also entails a trip to a haunted mansion with Jenny.

4 weeks and counting

Official move in to the new house date is November 15th at the very latest

It's going to be a long month.

Today calls for comfort food and Sangria to take my mind off of the horrible weather. I made roast chicken for lunch had some chocolate covered pretzels for a snack and for supper we ordered in Chinese food. If this weather keeps up I am going to gain a lot of weight. Below is my fabulous sangria recipe

3oz Red wine
1/2oz Scotch
1/2 oz Triple Sec
3oz Pineapple juice
3 oz orange juice
splash of Lime
splash of Ginger Ale

the badness continues

Again I have failed to blog and take pictures of the goings on here. This weekend was the Alberta Stock dog field finals and I was involved in organizing the trial. Because of my lack luster enthusiasm lately I failed to take pictures or do any face booking or picture taking. So I refer you too Wendy's blog
The trial was full of good weather and good friends.
Congrats to the winners

I know, I know

You know when your mother comments on your lack of blogging that things have gone terribly side ways. I seem to be stuck in some sort of vortex lately. A vicious circle of drinking too much coffee and complaining about my house not being done or the amount of rain we have been getting. My friend Bev calls this a "funk" I am stuck in it. Don't want to do anything just want to be a slug. The whole family has packed up for the weekend and traveled up to Lacombe to visit my mom, move some cows and bring the sheep home to go to market this week. Our house is slowly getting finished in the meantime I think our trailer gets smaller by the day.
Next weekend the the Alberta Stock dog year end finals. Should be fun as long as the weather holds. I have only entered Isla. I have decided to sell Rob. I like him as a dog to have around but him and I working wise just doesn't work. Not going to be an easy do to sell and I am particular as to where or who I would sell me dogs too. I hate it when dogs get passed around from home to home. In the meantime he is happy to chase Isla around the yard and move sheep around the farm.
Not much else new. Craig is coming along in his training. Bracken is living with Scott and Jenny. Scott will train her this winter and I have asked him to trial her a little in the spring if she turns out nice. Her personality has change quite a bit since she went to their house.
