400 miles over-due...

Yesterday I changed the oil in our car. It was the first time I'd done that. I change the oil in the van and Dad's truck a lot but never in the car until yesterday. It took FOREVER!!! I have been thinking over what I did yesterday and how I can do it better, and I have resolved to cut the time it took me by 4/5 the next time I need an oil change. Does anyone else enjoy changing oil, mowing lawns, whacking weeds (and yes with a weedwhacker LOL), shoveling snow, or any of the plethora of other tasks that our current society views as a hassle? I love doing all those and more!!!

Today I spent the majority of my time with my Dad learning how to use a new house drawing software program that he recently purchased. It was a lot of fun. We read through the blueprints of the first house that we built and drew it up on there. Guess what?!? It didn't have a flat-screen tv (or ANY kind of tv for that matter!!!) in the list of decorations for your house! It was also missing such necessities as bookshelves, cars for your garage, nightstand lamps (they had nightstands though), and other stuff that I can't recall at the moment. I had a lot of fun. They also didn't have *wait for it* GUITARS!!! OR GUITAR STANDS WITH GUITARS ON THEM!!! How sad.

Tomorrow is square dancing night!!! I can't wait! It is so much fun. Do any of my followers/occasional viewers square dance? Would anyone like to learn?

Well, until next time, toodles.


I'm thinking that the picture at the top is a little bit wide. I should probably crop it down a little sometime.

Today is Saturday. I know what you're thinking: "DUH!!!" but please, bear with me. At the Pederson household on Saturday, you will find our weekly cleaning getting done. Sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, dusting, cleaning toilets, sinks and counters and so on. We have it all split up into certain allotments and you choose yours and get it done (I know I know: DUH again). Most of us can get ours done within an hour. There's usually country music going; Rodney Atkins, Trace Adkins, Eric Chuch, Keith Urban, Josh Turner, Jason Aldean and a Gaelic band called Gaelic Storm and an opera group conducted by Paul Hillier are some of our favourite artists to listen to. HOW COULD I FORGET BRAD PAISLY?!?!?!?!? Brad Paisley should be on that list!!! Put him in mentally.

Earlier when I was vacuuming, my little 1-year-old brother Hezekiah was assisting me. He is SOOO CUTE!!! When I get on to a computer I'll upload a picture of him. It's always fun when he helps me.

Have fun until next time. Leave comments if desired.
