I don't like your face

The other day a friend of mine, Charlotte, stopped by to visit. On the way out, she decided to tell Charlie goodbye. I don't think he liked that idea. As a matter of fact, I've never seen him behave this way. They chatter when they're really angry/upset; this is the first I've heard him do it. Pretty neat, sad, and funny all at the same time. And I'm pretty sure if Charlotte had actually put her hand in the cage she may have lost it. Poor Charlie boy! :)

April Showers!

I guess this is the season for a lot of things- loud obnoxious birds, crazy pollen, and these weird mosquito type bugs. I mean they are seriously EVERYWHERE! Being the kind soul that I am (lol), I used to just try and catch them so I could release them back outside. The ones that didn't want to be caught, I took pleasure in just smashing them into the walls. I had the best of intentions, but frustration reared it's ugly head, and well, you know the rest. ;) This morning, as like most mornings, there were a couple of these guys flying around in the restroom, ugh. I started my shower and noticed one drowning near my feet, so naturally, I tried to help him drown. But then an overwhelming feeling of guilt came over me, so I had to scoop him up and set him on the shower ledge. In the process, I ripped off a couple of legs (whoopsies, my bad) but he was still alive- I promise. Anyways, I just noticed him dead right where I left him. Moral of the story: there isn't one. I just killed a bug today and thought I'd share. I think I'll flush him now.

The new pad.

I recently moved into a new place, and someone had asked recently why I hadn't posted any pictures yet. So, here ya go! Btw, I love this place; it will be hard to say goodbye when the time comes.

I finally had my TV mounted onto the wall, yay for me!

I just love to keep the blinds open, the view to the outdoors is just gorgeous. And you have to just love the faux french double doors. Beautiful!
My patio- which conveniently has a little gate; this is so convenient when the dogs have to be walked. The flowers are new, and I just planted some herbs recently too. :) You can't really tell in the photos, but there's a pretty good drop just past the doggie poo trash bin. It's neat, but I have to be extra careful never to let the dogs near it.
Just another awesome view! I've already seen what I believe to be a small fox or wild cat and a family of raccoons. I could sit on this patio for hours.

My New Favorite Recipe Blog!

I know a few of you out there have your own recipe blog, and I like them too. :) Don't hate! But I came across this one the other day and just LOVE it! I seriously printed out probably 50 recipes (and have more to print) yesterday and plan on trying them ALL out. This blog is called The Sisters' Cafe, I highly recommend you take your booty on over there and check it out. Even if you don't always like to cook or bake, this might be the blog to help inspire you to create wonderfully delicious (they have several good for you foods, too) meals without all of the hassle. I can't wait to try out every one of these. I wouldn't have ever thought a couple of years ago that I'd get so excited over recipes, but I guess things change as you get older, lol.

April Fools!

I thought I'd gotten off scott-free! No April Fools jokes came my way; boy, was I wrong! I'm known for playing small pranks around the office, so I thought I was being extra careful yesterday. I wasn't careful enough, and my co-workers got ahold of the front bumper of my car. I think the whole credit union was in on it, lol. But can you blame them???
Look at the picture below, I was able to tape this next to his name tag while he was away right before the big rush of the day. Not a single person mentioned it to him (and many many people saw it), lol. And no, this wasn't all I did. I didn't go big this year, just little random things here and there- tumbling paper towel rolls out of the cabinet, taping over the mouth piece on the telephone (it took Brenda forever to figure out why no one could hear her on the other end), replacing the copier paper, taping two dozen cups together at a co-worker's desk and filling them with water, etc.....
