Sneaking a Peek

The diggers are gone for the day, but I was coming inside from running some errands to say I had been mistaken about the gentlemen. They stopped me on my way out the driveway to ask if it was OK for them to be there(a little late) but I said sure, so thought maybe I should come inside and update you, that they might be a little more polite than I had given them credit for, when what do I hear, but a something that resembles a gunshot and loud cracking. Ta Daaaa....... no electricity, no computer, no phone. Guess who...........the diggers. The power company has restored power, but still no phone, still no computer, so I may be away until Monday. Maybe there is a message here.....too much blogging, too much complaining, not enough grace, not enough housework, yard sale pile getting done, so, looking on the bright side of things, the diggers have provided me with the opportunity to give my undivided attention to some much needful chores. By the way I am at the Public library to give you this update. So until Monday, I hope you all have a blessed weekend, and I will look forward to catching up then. JackieIf it looks like I am sneaking a picture here, you would be correct. I am sitting here at my computer when I hear a machine crank up and look out my window across my driveway to see this. Now, did anyone knock on my door to say they would be driving across my driveway, possibly tearing up the grass on the other side of the driveway that is so hard to grow since it has been so dry, and is just starting to fill back out because of the rain which makes the ground wet and will be making an even bigger mess. Of course not! It appears that I am in a run on sentence kind of mood.

Now instead of standing and looking to see if they can figure out what they are going to do they are sitting, with the machine looking partially dug into the ground. I may need to add they are not even digging for me, they are digging for a house across the street. I think before I get a little flustered because I think it is just common courtesy to tell someone that they will be in your driveway, I will go, that is if I can get out of my driveway since there are many large trucks and trailers parked all around. Town is convenient but sometimes I long for the quiet country.

I know this is not a very exciting post, and I am having a little difficulty coming up with some subject matter, since I seem to be drowning in preparation for the yard sale. So much to do, and I am a little overwhelmed, having a bit of a hard time staying focused. The digging has begun again so I am out of here. Have a wonderful day, and hope to be a little more exciting soon! Jackie

I'm glad they're not quite as rude as it first seemed...although zapping your wires isn't very nice!

I was wondering where you've been. I've not seen you around blog land lately. You've got a full plate!
I wished I could go to your sale. The lack of sunshine has brought down the numbers of yard sales. Hope to see you back soon.
Thanks for visiting my blog. It's been a bit of a trial and error, but the new background is up.
Have a *Sweet* Weekend!

Hi Jackie,
So glad you stopped by my blog! I've been poking around yours and it's fabulous! We have a house going up on both sides of us so the noise is endless, but thankfully they haven't hit anyting yet. Hope you're up and running soon. I am the wrong person to ask for tassel how to's. Mine was totally trial and error, but here are some great instructions from a fellow blogger
Good luck!
