I dont get alot of sleep anyway but I feel well for a lack of word , gypt(spell??)you know, got the short end. It makes me sluggish and assdraggin all day .Now I am as fast as I need to be but am built for comfort not speed LOL, but on days like this I feel like a turtle with two shells.
It is at least a cooler day today and a nice constant breeze so IT makes things better all around ,
Sundays around here , not always but most ,we have a big cooked supper and alot of the time it is the tradtional Jigs dinner with a Stuffed baked chicken. Jigs dinner consists of boiled salt beef, or salt riblets , boiled into oblivion then carrots , turnips, potaotes, cabbage , greens if available,an onion thrown in the boiling pot , with a bag of peas pudding , cooked till tender and served up with the roast chicken(or whatever roast beef/turkey etc) and gravy. The name jigs dinner refers to the meal without the roasted meat, it is all boiled ! It is actually fabulous may sound blahhhhhhhh but it is not especially when veggies are really fresh. It comes from our English/Irish heritage , so does our dialects , there are many here on the island .Some accents are so thick I have to strain to pick some of them out and the speed of the speaker is usually a very quick pace .Sprinkle in the slang words (ME SON, ME DEAR ,UPALONG LORDTHUNDERIN,YES BY!!! ),and unusaul sayings (Owshegettinonb'ys - (How is she getting on...or how is she doing?,,,,,,,,,Scoff and a scuff - Meal followed by a dance.) ,,,,,,,,,,,Now luh, da arse is gone right out of er - The economy is facing hard times!,,,,,,,,,,,,Stay where your at and I'll come where your to - Stay put until I get there!) ,,,,,,,,,,I'll be over now, d'once - I will be there soon.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Mind your mout now - Be careful what you are saying, usually used to tell someone their language is a little off colour.) ,, it can be like a different language to a mainlander. I guess everywhere has their own way of talking , I have always been interested in different dialects from everywhere not just here , and love to hear an accent , Australian, Southern,Swedish,French ,Boston,Minisota hehehehehe well you get the point .Do anyone out there have an accent or different slang from your area ,come on share :}
Long may your big Jib draw me buddies (HAHAHA)

I am sitting here in front of the TV with my laptop and am watching the Triatholon that was taken place here on the island . Athletes from around the world , swimming /biking/running around on our hilly terrain , WOW they are all guts , walking around some areas around here are trecherous as you would have to be part goat to hang on some of the hills :} and part polar bear to brave the waters, what great shape they must be in to endure . People on the island support all the athletes no matter where they are from and cheer them all on evenly, large crowds support the event and makes me feel good that it shows our true sprit of friendliness. Good luck to them all.

, somehow they always have a sleepy effect on me , like I want to curl up while the world goes away, wake me up later .Unfortunately I do not have that luxury, as most people who work outside or in the home we have to get up and get on with it ,even when you want to draw the covers up tight and snuggle into the pillow so warm.
I wonder what it would be like to win a large lottery and not have to push on so diligently and could not only stop to smell the roses but watch them grow.I hear many people say they wouldn't change but that is ludicrous , they may not want to but society as a whole towards them would change which would conform them knowing or unknowingly they would change.
What would I do if I won a large lottery hmmmmmmmmm????
Fall flat to the ground , no knees bent ,just like a tree and T I M B E R!
Get up and do the biggest dizzy happy dance every performed while rechecking the numbers
recheck the numbers for the third time
and then spend .........
new car/van /Harleys yes that's plural
boat for my DAD&MOM
a top of the line RV (have to ask Mr Mocha /DICK about that one LOL )put a little away
share with family /friends/ charities /Health research
Travel to Australia and Arkansas *wink wink*
rent a cruise ship and fill it with people I care about and sail around the world ,eating drinking and being merry ,,,,,,, yes I know it better be a big big lottery but it is after all fantasy! and on that note I would hire a dozen staff , all men and they would have to wear jean cut offs and OH MY , see how money corrupts , LMAO
So what would you do/buy if you won the lotto , or did you ever win big , come on tell me I'D LOVE TO KNOW

It is our friendly HAHA Moose , they can do alot of damage so watch out !They are bigger than alot of cars !!!!!!they are hunted on the isalnd (FOR FOOD,NOT FUN) but not where this sign is, due to it being a National Park and reserve for them.

This is a short 5 minute drive from our cabin down towards a tiny community ,where most of the houses are on either side of the road and there is a general store/post office /, you get the idea .
This water fall is partly from the snow on the mountains and is pretty dry this time of the year ,it procedes down to the highway under it and comes out .........
HERE , to join into blissful marriage with the Atlantic Ocean
On the other side of the mountain , "the bear went over the mountain
to see what he could see.......The otherside of the mountain,"
Dont let it fool you I am on a steep hill , these mountains are large and they have feirce wind that I spoke about before that tore a roof of a cottage , a BIG roof and pitched it into the ocean . It almost swiped my tent last time HAHAHA.It is powerful
This is one of the Beaches down there , It is sandy as apposed to our cabin which has large rocks to pebbles ,there is a little island that the Atlantic has to re route around to fill the beach .
This is another little port /island /harbour which is used to launch from in boat , it is the atlantic and just beyond is open sea .The smell of the salt water spray is intoxicating , and the fresh air fills your lungs to exhaustion.
we leave here and drive back to the cabin just as sun is seting and enjoy the fire , Hey who said they could burn MY old french doors !!! I guess it is too late now , they were only outside for a few years LOL!The fire got alot bigger after dark , they could put stuff in and I didnt know what it was till morning
well it's just stuff, as long as it wasnt toxic , go for it :} Wish I had some SMORES now !

How hot is is where you are ???????????
((((Thanks Meow for the converter ,,,,she has a temp converter on her blog check it out ))))))))))))))))

As the bad witch in the wizard of Oz says when Dorothy splashes her with water "I"M MELTING ,I'm Melting
I am not joking , today I placed a thermometer for outside use on my patio which gets little breeze , I left it in the sun and when back about an 1/2 hour later it read 45c , it was 31c in the house and we are not use to this weather , especially this time of the year , usually we will have a few hot days etc and August is hot but not like this , I guess when I asked friends while typing here a few months ago to send over the heat ,it was during snow storms and winter , but wow, what a difference. You can have some heat back now , thanks. I have showered three times today , I am getting pruney , dont you just hate that sticky feeling from heat.!
Now I don't know if your suppose to leave the thermometer out in sun ,you tuck into shade but I wanted to see if I was sitting out there what the temp would be cause it always seems hotter out there , now I know , it may not be a true reading but close enough . Our temps have been in the 30's high 20's Celsius not counting the humidex and it is humid (PANT PANT) SO EVERYWHERE YOU GO PEOPLE ARE SAYING "SOME HOT HEY?"
If we didn't get a breeze off the ocean , ughhhhhh! Now you all may be thinking , what is this girl talking about that's not too hot , but when your not use to it or not climatizied to it , it is like walking in a oven to us around here .
I guess everyone on this side of the planet is finding it hot , but Australia is a little chilly isn't it MEOW, LOL you can have some heat back LOL :}
It is about 1 am and I am reading blogs and bouncing around the net and was watching our local news wrap up , HEADLINE "Our politicians are being investigated for embezzling large amounts of money , hidden as travel and other expense payments , could total in the millions "
crooked politicians , who knew LMAO,,,,,, seems they were receiving payments for travel , gifts , etc more than once and overpayments of large amounts , and did they report it , NOOOOOOOOOOO of course not , there are criminal charges pending , HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA
If that were anyone (outside of politics) they would be drawn and quartered . This is not the first time certainly that this has happened but the first time they got caught , and enough proof to do something , oh well I guess the political speil will be spinning over the next few weeks .
Well I must go and see if there is something in the deep freezer I want to make for supper tomorrow and then sit in it , yes I said in it , hope I can fit , there will be a tiny news flash next week , Greeneyed girl found frozen stiff in freezer , with a supersized smile on her face .:0}
Hope your all doing something fabulously fun and wanting to tell me all about it LOL
come on , make me jealous , love to hear what you are all up to .LOL
PS> NOTE to J, please contact me so I know you havent been eaten by a LION! 1 email at arrival is uh , NOT ENOUGH , love you crazy girl , super hugs (((((((((((((((((((((--))))))))))))))))))))

Look what I got !!!!!! I love mail , snail mail ,email ,blog post etc . Especially from friends , this one is from my friend Meow .It really was a nice surprise , thank you , I scanned it and hope you can pick it out .click on it and it enlarges really nicely so you can pick it all out :} What a great place to live , looks like meow has alot of things to do over there, hey that may be her laying on the beach LOL . Thank you Meow you made my day big HUGS ((((((((**))))))))).
Well I needed something to make my day , we have what looks like "the pox of the CHICKEN" yep , chicken pox , The Doctor is not sure , could be one of a million viruses but looks like the old poxy to me and Him . Not a severe case but non the less the only chicken I want to see if in the oven roasting or maybe BBQ. HAHA
Well I can thank God it is not like some pictures I have seen on the web , any of you out there try to self diagnose????Scarey stuff , I was looking for pics of poxs LOL and some really bad cases came up , I started getting itchy-er by the second , I know it is the web and you cant buy into it but it is hard not to do if you are peppered in spots and people you live with have spots and it is 12:30 at night , I have alot of medical books but thought I'd take a peek on the web . The DR> says that there are at least 2000 or more undiagnosed virus with symptoms like these but you cannot tell with out the blood work ,which I had today , oh joy , well I guess I need to know , HAHA . I thought it was flybites first but there were more and more coming and no flies around , then horror , fleas , nope , checked not a flea in site and the DR said not a similiar bite mark ,sooooooooooo . I shall wait..............
Now all I need is a longer stick or a door facing to rub on , sounds naughty , and oh does it feel good ! and who said calomine lotion works had to be drinking or on drugs , it just distracts you from your misery .and makes your spots more noticeable .
Monday, July 10, 2006
WELLLLLLLL. I say to my self ,,,yep , I would like to put some pink into his cheeks , but his Mom is like , what are ya going to do , boys will be boys , I am in awe, and finally , I say , "Did he get punished"????Her answer , NO, how can ya today, they will call the police if you touch them and if your too harsh they will tell hate you ! . I am totally wanting to pounce on the lady, who I have just meet , but know some what about her through various friends. I come back with , you know , this will lead to bigger things , and what if something happened at work and you needed your car or if there was an accident etc , , I really felt like sayin ,,,,,
WAKE UP LADY YOUR SONS A DELINQUENT do something about it now ,before he goes to jail . This is not the first stunt he pulled and each are more serious , some people need school for parenting .
The lady sitting across from me as we were dispersing , kinda whispers to a few of us , """lock up your cars girls , I thought my son was bad , he came home with a ring of love bites , I think I will give him a hug when I get home """, we roared,
I mean this in the nicest way , if you bring them into the world TAKE CARE OF THEM tough love is part of it. OK WE ALL KNOW TEENS ARE GOING TO DO STUPID STUFF AND MAKE LOUSY DECISIONS , we can not help love them and want to help them , and keep them from trouble , but enough is enough, a good parent knows when to protect and when to make their child be accountable .
The picture ,it is for anyone out there who has a teen who has a difference of opinion (sort of an OXYMORON)laugh , you will need it hehe:}
What do you think , come on ya know ya wanna tell me , pleaaaaase :}
Have a good one

This is one of my favorite poems
it is not for all , romantic and yet a little Macabe.
Annabelle Lee by : Edgar Allan Poe
It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.
I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.
And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea
,A wind blew out of a cloud,
chillingMy beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulcher
In this kingdom by the sea.
The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me
Yes! that was the reason(as all men know, In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.
But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we
Of many far wiser than we
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.
For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the sideOf my darling,
my darling, my life and my bride,
In the sepulcher there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.
an undying love , what else could a woman want ! I am a sappy romantic at heart , anyone out there want to share a favorite????come on, I cannot be the only love junkie out there, or any poem ,,,,share ,,,,have a great day everyone .
