Bourne Ultimatum…

SWMBO and I went on our usual Friday date last night. Went to Red Lobster for dinner then to see “The Bourne Ultimatum”. Cool movie! Action from beginning to end. I knew at the end that Bourne was going to end up in the water with bullet holes in his back before they showed it. The only “complaint” I had with the movie was how incredibly fast, accurate and ‘all knowing’ the computers they used were. For all you ‘techno-phobes’ out there; it can be done; but it can’t be done that fast.

Really Not Much Going On Lately…

Still going out to the property most everyday and either cutting up wood and bringing it home or moving dirt. Trying to make where I want the outbuilding bigger. Rained the other day so I stayed home and re-stacked the wood in our ‘wood shed’. Have room now for the ‘new’ wood. Now to rent a log splitter…
Want to go see the latest Bourne movie. Maybe Friday night. Red Lobster sounds good too! Read the “Bourne Identity” and am reading the “Bourne Supremacy”. Except for an ‘agent’ that’s lost his memory the books are nothing like the movies. And I think I like the movies better. Too much whining I can’t remember this or I can’t remember that in the books. The books are interesting. But not as interesting as the movies.

Finally! The Damned Rain Has Stopped…

And we’re moving back to warm (GOOD) weather! I’ve still been going out to the property most every day and cutting a load of firewood and bringing it back here. About got enough to justify renting a log splitter.
SWMBO took me to the mall in Silverdale today to pick up her Harry Potter book. We tried out some of the Select Comfort beds also as we’re planning to switch beds when we move in to the dome. Been sleeping on a waterbed since 1971 (with FEW exceptions) but am ready to move to something else. Something a bit more comfortable maybe….
Took a couple of days a scanned over 300 of my pictures and will be straightening those up and uploading them to my gallery. Spent the last couple of days ripping my (legal!) cd’s to mp3’s.

I’d Like To Say Nothing Is Going On…

But I’ve been too busy to say that. Sort of!
Missed our regular Friday night date last Friday ’cause SWMBO drove down to Sisters, Oregon for their annual Quilt Show. She was gone until late Saturday night so it was just Poop Dog and me hanging around the house.
I went out to the property friday and saturday and cut up some wood. Having that digger to hold trees at waist level sure makes it easier to cut them up! I’ve cut up and transported to the house we’re living in about a cord of wood so far. Cool. Now I have to rent a splitter, get it all split and stacked in the ‘woodshed’.
Sunday was a pretty regular day. We had friends out to the property for a picnic. Took our new camp stove and grilled ribs. Even made homemade potato salad! (I’m SO cool! <G>)
Monday it finally started cooling down some and it’s been raining off and on Tues & Wednesday. Had a meeting with Bob the Dome Guy and his main man Dan at the El Sombrero in Belfair about noon today (Wed). Got a lot of thing about the dome worked out and made a visit to the property. SWMBO’s car almost didn’t make it up the road because of all the mud! Had a doe and her baby stroll through the clearing while we were all standing around in the dome hole talking. Cool! I like having a piece of property where deer feel they can waltz through….
Not much else going on. Playing on the computer a lot. Mostly converting video’s to divx format. I need to get my ass on the scanning I have to do! I’m playing too much though…. Did manage to upload SWMBO’s Quilt Show pictures to our galleries. Check it out!
