So it took 7 calls back and fourth with the Village to get them to come out and help get some of this brush picked up! UGH! Monday was our bi-monthly pick up... storm was Tuesday....next one is July5th.... Now I would think when there is a storm, just like snow, concessions have to be made?! Right? NOPE! I had to show my ugly side in the end... Now I get that they can't come and get every limb that falls during a storm, BUT when you say it was a WHOLE TREE, and it was in the street and on our car, that should count for something, right? Well, first mistake is WE cleaned if off the street....Long story short.... They finally came and took most of it away.... YIPPEE!!! But I had a head ache for the whole week!!!
Now I had been trying to get a few dolls done for Lemon Poppy Seeds... But with the back procedure, then the boys party, I got behind... SO finally today I got a few new things up! I thought I would share a couple of them with you! Here's Becky, a OLM original... She a big prim gal at over 28" long and a fat head! Love that puckered mouth!
hard to believe I need to think about fall... This was a pro-do-type.... Bigger then I wanted, but I finished him up and love how he turned out. I just don't think I want to make these guys this big! even with rags in the bottom it takes at least a 1/2 of a box of batting to stuff him! LOL
So here's the war zone before clean up started.....SIGH... such a mess... not the end of the world, just a mess... and I feel guilty not being able to help some....
Hubby out there cleaning up today.... now we are getting ready, or I should be...LOL.. to go to a graduation party....
AND here it is the new washing machine! Misi commented that sometimes things work out for a reason, and something better comes along.... WELL... This is the case with this bad boy! OMG! I needed a washing machine this size when the boys were little! Truly almost to big for what I need these days....LOL.... So I got the clear lid on the top loader. I really wanted that... the other didn't have it.... They claim this is a better machine then the one we returned. I asked them to comp the difference for my aggravation on getting a broken machine and they did!!!
So it all worked out in the end.... Now we wait for the adjuster on Wednesday for hubby's truck verdict.....Off to get ready, have a great day everyone... I will visit you tomorrow! OLM
PS... I have done 4 loads of laundry already, I am fascinated by the clear lid...LOL
