Have You Ever Seen the Rain?

We are suppose to get rain tomorrow, but I am not holding my breath. It has not rain one single day since we got back from Oregon. Even for Colorado it is extremely dry. I personally think we are in the middle of hundred year drought. Optimistic Paul decided he better finish the shed before it really did rain. He started putting the tar paper on around noon, but it got too hot and he didn't finish until after supper. As you can see, we are ready if it does rain.

Here is a shot of the shed with half of the tar paper on it, and a picture of our beautiful lilac bush. Turns out lilacs don't need a lot of water. Who knew?


I found couple of Seminary pins, Mia Maid pin, and a Brownie pin with my service pins.Guess, I might be a bit of a hoarder.

Service Pins

I did get a pin for my twenty five years of service. I now have quite a collection of service pins. I also got a gift. I choose a hand held GPS system that lets you know the elevation. Still don't have a Droid.

Earth Day

For Earth Day my supervisor gave each of us stapless stapler. It only staples up to five pages at a time, but it is so cute! It kind of reminds me of how we use to hook pages together when I was in elementary school. I wonder if kids today do the same thing we use to do? The G-Babe blog has mentioned several times how much music means to it's creater. It is so amusing (to me) to be so un-musical and admit'song' is a important part of my day to day life.
About 15 years ago I started using music at work as a way to block out distractions. Nowdays, I can not function without something playing in the background, even if there is no commotion. I have been 'conditioned,' just like Pavlov's dog.
Today I have been focusing on popular tunes from the 70's. You know, "Louie, Louie," "Lonesome Loser," and "Indian Reservaion."
