Sometimes it's honey; sometimes it's sting...

Tonight is the first of this season's Survivor episodes. I can't wait! I think the division of the group into four teams by age and sex is going to be a very interesting long as the younger men don't clobber the younger women, older men and older women tribes right off the bat. Hopefully the challanges won't be slanted quite so heavily as usual towards physical strength this time.

Yesterday was a busy day. I had a lot of paperwork that I got done, and then there was the parish council meeting last night. It ran longer than usual due to all the upcoming projects and activities.

Big family news: Mathieu (3) can ride his big boy bike now, all by himself. Sure it has training wheels, but he is riding all around the teardrop driveway on his own.

The county homemaking and livestock show is underway. Zachary didn't place in the county with his leather photo album, sewn goat blanket or cake, but he did get a 1st place, 4th place, and 6th place ribbon. He has his hopes set on winning or placing very well in the goat division tomorrow. His goats look GOOD, and he has been working very hard with them all along. I really hope he does well with them. He did real well showing a pig today at the show. Sarah, a cute little distant cousin on my side of the family, had two pigs showing in the same division, so asked Zach to show one for her.

Today I went to Beeville, picked up Andrew for lunch, and ran a few errands. He has a lot going on his his life, so it was really interesting to talk with him. Among other things his band, 'Up From Ashes'...or 'Risen From Ashes'...? got a recording contract. He says it is no big deal - strictly small time, but still, it is a good thing. The photo above is of him and his dog, Buddha that I took when I dropped him off afterwards. Yes, those are the shadows of Christmas lights still up on Feb. 2.

Hi, just stopped by to say "Thank you!" for the super cute Year of the Dog postcard. Arf Arf! Happy New Year to you as well... From one Survivor fan to another. :-) Can you BELIEVE they voted out the lumberjill first???

You're welcome, Jess. I enjoyed painting them.
I really wish they wouldn't have voted Tina(?) out. Sigh. She was strong, outdoorsy and interesting. :/
