Yep. It is still going. Sometimes better than others.
I think the weather needs to be medicated. It is acting a bit bi-polar here lately. It isn't sure what season it is. Jackets at City Fest? What? City fest is where they give out free bottles of water to help keep people from getting too hot. Little or no shade on the city streets and the beginnings of summer heat. Heat, not jackets! You shop for hand painted tiles, wind chimes and hand made childrens clothing. Hot dogs, hamburgers, barbecue and turkey legs are on the menu. Bounce houses, pony rides and carnival style games. It is good to be back in the south.
Who is ready for the rattle snake round up?
Nope. I didn't think so. I skip that one very year. HATE snakes.
With the weather so unpredictable right now, our garage activities are limited. However, Dragon seems to have rediscovered my backside. Random smacks and squeezes at every opportunity. I wake up every morning with my panties rearranged in interesting ways. I ask him, "how did you do that?" He tells me that he doesn't know. Must have done it in his sleep.
Ha! Like I really believe that. Okay. He may be telling the truth but I can never be sure.
"The LOOK" is coming more often, as well as quiet threats. Is my temper a little out of control or is he back on top of things? I think it is a little bit of both. He hands out deadlines and expects them to be met. No threats for the deadlines. Simply expectations and the knowledge that there will be consequences.
We had the garage cleaned up, then Dragon dug the bike out for the season. There goes my nice clear spot of floor space. Between the lawn mowers, garden tools and motorcycle there is NO room. Grrrr. I guess it is like any other room of the house. It will take continuous efforts to keep it clean and usable. The weather should be warming up a bit this week. I think I'll spend a little time clearing a spot for some spanking action. I already have a chair out there. Things just need to be moved around a bit for some swinging room. I can almost feel the sting already.
What is on the agenda for the day? Clearing projects. I have started drafting a new style of over bust corset. Every excited. This one will be part of a steampunk/50s sort-of outfit. It is what I want it to be. The base dress is a classic 50s housewife type of dress. Add a leather corset, engineer boots, steampunk jacket and hat. What do you have? Something that is uniquely me. Then I am off to work with the lycra for the running skirt. I wanted something longer than the local stores sell. I don't like my bottom hanging out for all to see. I'll save that for Dragon. He prefers it that way too. I am working with two new sewing machines. A cover lock machine and a new sewing machine. I have to figure out which stitches work best and how to do what I want to do. What the different setting are and how they work with the fabric. It doesn't take me long to get frustrated, that is why I have more than one project going.
Sorry my posts aren't coming as regular as they did at one time. My internet access is usually limited to my phone. And I HATE typing on that thing. I share a lap top with two other people and my daughter has priority. She uses it for school work. Sorry folks, school work is more important than blog land. So proud of her. This is her first year with computerized lessons and she is doing great. She is almost done for the year.
It is time to turn the computer over to her for the day and for me to take my forgotten antihistamines. My allergies won't let me forget them for long down here. Itchy eyes, runny nose and sneezing. I do love the south but there is so much more pollen down here.
ps. no new job yet. Still looking for opening and opportunities. Dragon says the job he has now is a job. It is work that pays the bills. I asked him if he wanted to go back to fixing vacuum cleaners for a living. He declined and decided that he is happy with the job he has now after all. This isn't the best, most stable job he has ever had but it isn't the worst either.
