Back on the grill

Vday got me back on the grill after our harsh winter.

NY strip steaks, crab claws and some big shrimps.

Still have some sick kids, though.

Lovey Doveys

Not content with halting my playground building effort, by making a nest and laying eggs in my pile of parts, now a pair of doves is building a nest on the shelf of my BBQ grill!

Looks like I won't be grilling for a while.

Unless barbecued dove sounds appealing to anyone.....

Guess I'll just have to paint instead.

Montezuma's Castle

Took a drive on Sunday, up to Sedona, for lunch.

On the way back we stopped off for a look at Montezuma's Castle, which has nothing whatsoever to do with Montezuma.

Nice place for a picnic, however.

Bird's nest

While hunting for Easter eggs in the garden, the kids stumbled upon a dove sitting on a nest of 2 eggs.

She has built it on a chair round the side of the house, where I had put all the parts to finish the playground structure.

So now I can't get that done till after the babies have flown the coop.

The baby birds. Not our children.

Justin Case

I doubt anybody's been keeping up, but here's what happened. Ifn you want details, check my tweets.

SWMBO got a new job in Scottsdale, AZ. We moved over to MIL/FIL's place at ChristmaKwanzaaChannuka. I drove a U-haul with the insides of our house, and HerOutdoors drover the kids.

Once we settled down, we bought MIL/FIL's house and they are moving northwards. The sale closed this week, so it's now officially owned by our bank.

Its a lovely big house with 12' high walls, 4 toilets (inside) and a big back garden (outside). Once I find my camera-USB cable I'll get pics uploaded.

Transport is an issue, and SWMBO takes the car, so I hafta borrow MIL's to go out. Starbucks is 3 miles away. Can you believe that?

New Desert Colour Scheme.

Do you like it? Now that we are in Arizona, I needed a more appropriate colouer scheme.

And, one of these days, pics of the house we just bought. My first hoose!

What happens when The Hulk doesn't get his LA Weekly

Passed this the other morning outside Starbucks. I saw julia Roberts driving out of there last week. Coincidence? Wonder if they are doing a movie about a lady Hulk with her in it? It was closed for an afternoon a few months ago, while Sandra Bullock was filming there. And I also once saw Spot, the Target dog. What a name dropper.

Finally got back to blogging

Took me ages, but I was finally able to log on again.

Had a look at Kyle's site last week and it got me twittering. That should keep me busy.

Had some friends round for dinner last night, baked salmon, roast veggies, mashed yams and SWMBO's spinach salad.

Finished my MBA, and will got to the graduation ceremony at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh in November.

Starting to interview now for jobs.

All new!

Found my blog again. Windows crashed and killed my bookmarks folder, and I couldn't remember where my wee blog was. Now I have it back again.

She who must be obeyed has a blog herself now. It seems to be written in the language of her planet.

Spare ribs for T last night. Nothing special except the price: 99c per pound Albertsons special.

It may be dover sole tonight, if I can find it in the freezer.
