Smooth Operator

Merry Christmas everyone. I suppose you’ve all been missing your weekly updates. Well, I’ve been missing my sanity and sitting on my couch. So, we’re all disappointed. 🙂

December always brings lots of activity, what with the shopping and wrapping and baking and general over indulgence. However, this year we added Christmas parties, birthday parties and weddings to the list of things that we wanted to cram into one month. Oh yes, and we’re still finishing drywall.

I say we, but ultimately, I’m still just the tool washer. Drywall is messy business and even more so without running water! There has been some sanding going on so we feel good about paint soon! The husband is glad to hear the word paint, because that’s my thing. The father (who is my dad), has a paint spray gun that he is going to loan us. I’m looking forward to trying that out for primer and the bedrooms. In the living and dining rooms, I won’t be able to spray due to the half wood walls. (Which, P.S, by-the-way, I put poly on last weekend.)

So now on to the wild life! We saw a few deer on Saturday morning, but no elk. On Sunday afternoon a flock of seagulls turkey came through the back yard. They were some big boys! (Note: I don’t actually know that they were boys. I looked up how to tell. Males [Called Jakes. Girls are called Jennies!] have brightly colored heads, which I didn’t find clarified anything for me. Also, evidently all turkeys have a snood [the red dangling thing].

As with the past few weeks, I didn’t see any elk until we were headed out of town! They’re even more fuzzy now than just a few weeks ago!
