holidays, vacation, work, etc....

vacation sheep and goats!
horrible decoration over the bed. i want to burn it next time.
also, i don't like the bossy signs. we laugh & dream without reminders!

rachel made us cool wine glasses, groundcat is crabby, and the goat stuck his tongue out at us.
i really looked like this on vacation. the dogs got new toys from jnet and mike! (here's griffin with one right before he demolished it.)

weird stuff in shops, boring books at the cabin, us....
these are my favorite pics from the last few days:

the holidays and time at the cabin were amazing. time with both our families on xmas was lovely. lots of laughter and good times. the cabin was perfect with it's big fireplace, jacuzzi and goats & sheep. we had amazing meals, and watched "sideways"(i'd forgotten how good that movie is.) we saw a family of deer come right by our cabin, and more deer when we got home. we found some cool, not so touristy antique shops (including one with a giant wasp nest for sale in the basement.)
i came home and played with my wide angle lens and got some great pics of the barn. how many pics can i take of the barn, dogs, and groundcat? apparently no limit.
now i'm back to work and....yeah. back to work. more talk about budget cuts, projects on hold until even 2010. i stick it out one day at a time, blog on my lunch break, and try to stay calm.
sidenote: have you ever sat next to a "loud eater"? the kind of person who could make yogurt sound crunchy??? for some reason it's a pet peeve of mine. god knows i probably make a lot of noise. i get allergies and sniffle & clear my throat. so i have no room to talk. but still, the loud lip-smacking eaters make me koo-koo. (probably the same thing that makes me hate it when the dogs lick themselves at night. slurp, slurp....... ICK!)
to see more pics on that damn facebook: our vacation at the cabin posted here. some cool photos of the barn are here. pics from xmas are here. i know, no one cares. i am blogging out of spite. ciao!!!!

Since I can't get on facebook at work (access denied) I can only find peace thru your blog... so keep blogging!
Glad you like the glasses.

What you wrote about bossy signs cracked me up. Thanks for the laugh.
