So very different

MCR has a new song.

All I can say, is it is not what one would expect from My Chemical Romance. But once you hear....

Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na) will be stuck in your brain till the end of time.



Here is just a little taste of what is to come. What do you think?

I wonder if this would actually work. ;-)

To tatt or not to tatt

Tatting that is.

Years ago I tried tatting (using a shuttle) but was unsuccessful. I couldn't figure out how to use the shuttle at all. I came across this post back in August which in turn led me to this video tutorial on needle tatting. Now this I can do! Now to just find the time to start.

The last week

This week is my last week for jury duty. I cannot believe it has been 4 months already. Although it was an inconvenience to go to jury duty twice a week, I think it may be hard to go back to work on a daily basis. Plus there are some people that I really enjoyed visiting with each week. It will be nice to finally get closer to getting caught up at work and now that I won't have to worry about this extra weekly commitment I can continue with my education. Now if only I could have a couple of days of vacation. With only working 3 days a week for the past 4 months I doubt my boss would agree to me taking time off from work.

Deceptive Beauty

When we bought our house it came with two very ugly bushes in the backyard. We knew that eventually they would have to go but it was not a task that was on the top of the list. It has been a very rainy spring and the bushes started to turn from brown to green and the white bottle brush type flowers turned a pretty purple color.

I have lived in the desert my entire life. I have heard of Buffel Grass and knew it was bad (it kills the native plants and is very quick to burn) but never knew what it looked like.

I took this photo back in April. It is now September. It was not until I got this month's electric bill (that happened to include a photo of what to look for) that I found out that this bushy plant is the dreaded Buffel grass. I had seen this bushy plant everywhere and never knew what I was looking at. I think I will digging out this weed a lot sooner than I had planned.
