Mighty Mo

This is KAW point where the Mighty Mo and Kansas river meet. If you look closely you can see the Mo to the left and you also might be able to see its current is so strong its flowing back into the Kansas river a bit.




That's a headlight in the mirror and check out the train it has no caboose.









This is a sand bagging machine the sweet Army Core sent this to the little town of Parkville.






I know its a bit blurry but this wall of sandbags was very impressive 6 ft maybe









Mighty Mo




The call the Missouri river the Mighty Mo. The Mighty Mo is being ornery its over flowing and the currents in the river are amazing fast. Army Core of engineers are letting excess amounts of water out of the damns to the north of us. Nebraska or Iowa? Its all from record breaking snows so this "melt" is headed this way. The good thing is that the Army knows how long will take for all that water get here so this weekend was all about being prepared for the little riverside towns I live close to.



This weekend was also about perfect weather two very perfect days! Saturday we went to a blues/rock/jazz festival and it was worth it. I got in the girls line to go potty and an older lady looked at me and asked me if I was hot. I had on jeans and two thin tank tops and a loose knit zip up sweater. I said no. then she asked me if I was from KCK and I said no and she it showed : )



Now give me a break it was like 72 and I was sitting in the shade with the most perfect breeze and very very comfortable. I don't as a rule wear shorts till its 80 to be she was weird in short shorts and a sleeveless tank at 72.

Feeling fine as frog hair! Now to get Miss Pumpkin on the mend, who has been hair ball hacking for five days. My poor girl! We'll I'm off to photograph some cards. I hope you all are well!

so much

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…

Life

Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …
