A Peacock?

On the way to work this morning, I had to slow down to let a peacock cross the road.  Where did a peacock come from?  That was odd.  Do people keep peacocks as pets?
A couple of weeks ago there was a hot air balloon trying to land in a field beside the road as I went to work about 7:30 in the morning.  Strange stuff.  Just wanted to share.

Writer's Block: Physical Education

Call it gym, P.E., recess, or pure hell, most people have participated in a class at school that focused on games and athletics. What sport or game did you hate the most when you were a kid? What sport or game was your favorite?
I hated volleyball!  I made a B in health/PE once all because I failed the volleyball test.  I didn't like much in PE in high school.  In younger grades I liked free play on the playground.  Tennis is ok, but we never played it at school.  In college aerobics was a good PE class; dance would have been ok too.

Bored

I'm very bored tonight.  My husband is playing video games.  I'm looking at recipes online finding to decide what to bring for my sister's baby shower.  We did some yard work, then I made fajitas for supper.  Not much else; I feel very lazy.  We should have done more outside since the weather was nice again, but it gets dark so early now.  We will definitely walk tomorrow.

I could bake something else, but we don't need anything.  There are still left over cookies from Friday's lunch at work.  Usually all of my oatmeal cookies are eaten at work.  I don't think I put them out early enough.  Next month I'm making something else.  I'm the only one expected to bring the same thing every month anyway.  I can cook other things besides oatmeal cookies!  Maybe people are getting tired of them and won't notice if they aren't there next time.

What's everyone else doing tonight?  Anything exciting?
Maybe I should do some more house work since I'm so bored or dye my hair.


Edit:  And my foot keeps going to sleep sitting here!

Writer's Block: A.A. Milne

Some people find Eeyore’s gloomy outlook charming. Others prefer the bouncy enthusiasm of Tigger. Who would you rather be trapped in an elevator with: Eeyore or Tigger?
Eeyore
I like Tigger, but I don't think I could deal with all that bouncing while trapped in an elevator.  Tigger might cause me to have a panic attack.

What's Your LiveJournal Sitcom? (by rfreebern)
I think this got the sex mixed up on most of my lj friends.  It's silly, but I like it, especially the part where I try on broken_skai's pants without permission.

Isn't it good...

when someone says something to encourage you at just the right time without even knowing that you needed encouragement?

That situation just happened at work.   Thank you Jesus for working through people to help us

Now back to work. 

Fay

We've had some rough weather today coming from what's left of hurricane Fay.  I wasn't sure I was going to make it to work this morning.  I couldn't see anything but the lights of other cars because it was raining so hard.  Then in the afternoon, there was a tornado warning because one was spotted in a nearby town.  I was in a meeting at a middle school.  The kids had to go into the hall and crouch.  They let us continue our meeting, but I was a little nervous because there was a lot of extra furniture in that room.   I recently had a dream about a tornado, too.  The tornado never came near us though.  Coming home from the gym tonight, there was a flooded area on my road.  I found another way home.  This hasn't been as bad as Hurricanes Floyd and Fran, but still it's the worst weather we've had in awhile.  Something about those f named hurricanes in NC.  Poor kitties stuck outside :(  I wanted to sneak them in, but then my husband would probably not be able to breathe tonight.  Which reminds me I need to call him to let him know about the flooded road.  I hope people are driving carefully tonight.  A lot of them weren't this morning.  I don't understand how people can continue to drive 60 mph or more when they can't see where they're going.

Singing Disney

What do you do when your husband is singing Disney songs while using the computer for an hour?  How does he remember so many songs and dialogue from the movies?

I hate my lawn mower!

There's always something wrong with it.  Finally I got the pin in place so it doesn't drag the ground.  I planned to mow the yard today.  Guess what?  It won't start.  I just put  a new battery in it last year so that shouldn't be the problem.  Tim is at work with my car because his is in the shop so I can't do anything about it today.  Hopefully my neighbors won't complain.
