Hunting & Family Time!

Hey Everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend!

As you know I went out hunting on Saturday, and since I didn’t see anything it was a pretty uneventful day haha. I mean I saw some birds and chipmunks but that was it. So I took a a couple pictures of my surroundings and a couple walks around the woods before I went home.This first picture was taken about 6:40-ish in the morning. I thought it was pretty neat that it was naturally this purple. Oh and it is from the stand I was in.


Here is about the spot an hour later.


I got out in the woods about 6:30am and crossed the creek to get to the stand I was going to sit at by the time I took that first picture. I sat their most of the morning until I did a big loop around the hill. My brother and dad were out as well so we met up around lunch time at the cabin and ate. After that I went home. I’ll most likely be going back out this coming Saturday as well. My brother’s deer is being processed so he should have the meat back soon.

Sunday was a lounging day for me, but turned into doing some needed tasks. I went to get groceries, alone because I am much faster haha. I still hate doing it, but I hate it more when I have to slowly stroll. This way I can get in and out in about 40 minutes, with everything instead of 2 hours. When I got home I had to take a picture of my boy with his animal book and drool on his chin. 😀


Later that day we decided that we would for the first time feed him his first piece of ‘real’ food. We cut him up a banana and let him go for it.


Clearly you can tell he is new to this whole eating thing. He didn’t do much more than suck on it, but the taste was still there and I think he liked it. We will now continue to introduce certain foods to him and let him learn on his own how to pick them up and put them in his mouth. I was surprised that he didn’t instantly do that, because anything else he grabs he jams right up there. This will not be his main source of food, we will keep him on breast milk, hopefully, up to a year.

After we got him all cleaned up we took him and the dog for a much needed walk. It had been a month or more since we had gone on one and the weather was sunny and clear. It was a bit chilly so we wrapped up the babe pretty tight. This was also the first time he was front facing in the stroller.


Those eyes though.

That brings us to today, back at work. :/ I would much rather do something else with my time but this pays the bills and the people are nice. We didn’t end up taking family pictures because our nephew was running a fever and to be safe they didn’t come. I also am pleased to tell you that I got a hair cut and I don’t look like a moron, so that is a plus!

I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀


A Bit Of Everything

Hey Everyone!

After yesterday’s post I have cleared my head and will be taking the first step to work on some of these projects. Of course, one at a time will be best. The weather is finally cooperating and that will help. The first thing I am going to tackle is my porch and front stairs. I have to finish cementing the steps to make a nice enough 90 degree angle. Following that I will have to sand and paint. Soon after I will be able to lay the new outdoor carpet. I will, with any luck do the cement work tonight after work. I may possibly buy the carpet and double sided tape as well. If everything is on track I should be able to have this all done by the end of this weekend. It will be tough since this weekend is packed with other things to do but we will get it done! This whole thing will make the outward appearance of the house look 100% better. Depending on how much everything is going to cost will dictate what I am able to do after. I might be able to start working on making my own bookcases, one at a time. Maybe I can start on the garage. That way I won’t deplete my home fund in the process.

Work has been pretty slow today, and it makes me feel different things. On the one hand I want to get the heck out of here and be more productive elsewhere, but at the same time it is nice and peaceful. I should have a few more PCs to work on tomorrow and next week, that’ll keep me plenty busy. I think the only thing I have really had to go check out today was a screaming printer. You all know how I feel about those things!

I have been working on learning Python coding. I want to learn some sort of code and really know it. I heard that it is a great started language, but if I don’t use that knowledge I will surely lose it, that’s just how I am. I have been doing well so far, but I have ran into some snags with the code not working itself. So I took a step back from it because it will only get worse if I keep digging for something that isn’t there.

Our masonic degree work went well last night. We were in and out of there in about two hours. It was super hot in there though. We turned the AC on but it didn’t seem to make much of a difference. We had enough people there and a few guys on the sidelines which is nice to see. We are taking the months of July and August off for the summer, and will be back at it come September.

That is it for me today. I’ll be back again tomorrow for the Friday post, I hope to see you then! 😀 😀

Blah day

Hey There Everyone!

Today has been slow overall for me here at work. Everything is in working order and no one is having any issues that are too complicated. Last night my wife and I ran out and drove past a few houses that are for sale in the area, but didn’t really see anything that we liked. We really hope the right house pops up soon. It is exhausting when all we can do it wait.

My brother had let me know that they need a car seat for his truck for their new baby. I found the one hey liked and bought it for them yesterday evening. It is a nice Graco 4ever seat. It can be used until she is ten years old or 120lbs. They have one now but it will be easily out grown and any time they take a different vehicle they have to swap the car seat out. So it will be a good first real gift to them from me.

This weekend can’t come soon enough. My wife and I have been waiting to get away for a relaxing weekend for far too long. We have a wedding to attend, in our old college town. We will both be out of work early on Friday to get out there for the rehearsal and dinner. We are staying in a Comfort Suites Hotel, we have a pretty nice room and will be away from family and pets for the three days that we will be out there. It doesn’t seem like much but Living back home with your parents after you have been out on your own for 7 years is a huge pain in the ass. They mean well and we know it is a good idea to help us, but it is still rough.  I will be staying in a nice bed:


And I will definitely be using this hot tub 😀


Gah! I can’t wait, to be here. We will be in our old stomping grounds too, so we know where to go and what to do in the small amount of free time we will have.

Today was payday for me, and boy did I need it. I managed to rack up a good credit card balance. I won’t be able to pay it all off with this one check but it will make a good dent that is for sure. I bought a few things for my truck, a wedding gift, a car seat, a few meals, a member book through my college fraternity, dog &cat food, and a couple other small things. It added up quick.

I hope you all have a good hump day, and I’ll see you tomorrow! 😀 😀
