Let me tell you a story....

Yes, we know, it's been about a zillion years since the RicRac girls have posted. Suffice it to say that life been having her way with us!

Dena is busybusybusy finishing her MLS degree, raising a genius of an 8-y-o, and prettifying her new house.

And Tiffani? Well, I disappeared to write. And, as a matter of fact, my first pro fiction sale just went live recently at Strange Horizons. You can read it by clicking HERE. It's not too long, so it won't take much time. I hope you enjoy it!

And, while Dena has been quite the craft girl (ask her to post pics of her kitchen island and the "booth" she built, complete with fab pillows!), all I've made lately is a laundry bag ... that I'm taking with me on my 6-week writing workshop to La Jolla. :) So I'm sorry to leave again. But I promise to be back some day and to have craftiness to show off.

Yeah, you know who I am talking about...ADAM LAMBERT. Sure, he's gay, but that is part of why I think he rocks...he can make both the girls AND the boys melt. Aside from the hottiness, he also has a younger Bono charisma that I appreciate.

Honestly, this will be the first time that I can say I will actually buy an album of an American Idol. Heck, I would even buy an album of what I have heard so far on the show!

Anyway, enjoy the boy---and if you haven't seen it, trust me, he is totally worthy.

Tags of 6

So, Emilia has tagged me--and I must comply.
According to the rules, I must post the 6th picture in the 6th folder in my pictures files, so here it is:

It is hard to see her, but if you open the pic you can see bella leading a very large horse (made much larger by the fact that the poor kid takes after her parents in the vertical department) VERY well. This was last year--she participated in a week long horseback riding camp, and pretty much loved it from the beginning. Bella isn't a team-oriented kinda gal. I think she is always worried about the other kids, and doesn't like the pressure, so horseback riding is right up her alley. I was blown away with how much confidence she had about her riding abilities, and I was pretty impressed with the show that she put on (which is what you are seeing in the picture). She pulled that horse, it did what she led it to do. She got on that sucker and they trotted, stopped, backed up, you name it.

Other kids were racing after their run away horses. I didn't snicker, I promise.

Still Alive

I promise!! Just an update, I am working my fingers to their little nubbins in school so have been ignoring any bloggerific-ness. Solly. Anyway, without further ado, I am posting pics of my step-grandbaby Lily. Hmmm...I wonder who she looks like?

Ahhh....choo! A dusty last couple of days were had, but soooo worth it! As many of you know, we bought a house a few months ago, and I have been giving the wall in between the kitchen and dining room the evil eye ever since. My father-in-law decided that he would come help us take it DOWN, foolish man! (Actually, he did most of the work.)
Before, in all its hideous mustard glory:

During, and notice that dave still has on his pajamas:

Roger, electrical mastermind:

The easy part is done:

Almost done! All we need to do now is some patching and painting...the electical blucky took about 12 hours one day, and another 5 the next. They were three ways switches, and I guess those are harder?? Hm. Who knew.
Silly boys:

Is it Christmas Yet?

It feels as if I've been prepping for the big day for weeks... oh wait--I HAVE! From baking dozens (13? 14?) of cookies to shopping to parties and figuring ot menus, it's been a whirlwind few weeks. OH, and there's also been crafting! But I can't show any pics yet :( We'll show off soon...
