Friday Fences and a Tree

I've decided I'm not having a very good year. I've always heard bad things come in threes, well my three is up so hoping for a better 'rest of the year'. The dryer kicked off, as did my computers-plural, and now it's the dishwasher. I'm re-learning how to hand wash dishes. My brilliant, philosophical Hubby told me, "It's just like riding a bike." Okay, so he was right. I didn't forget.  I do remember how much I hated washing the utensils and I cringe every time I stick the dishcloth down inside a glass. I almost cut off my thumb back in the 70s when a glass broke with my hand twirling around inside.  Not good. To be honest, I'm kind of enjoying dish washing. It gives me some quiet time. Especially since hubby runs like a scared rabbit the minute I get out a dishwashing liquid. And there is the water saving factor. All good intentions aside, I'll be appliance shopping this weekend.

I found this fence on my drive through the country a couple of weeks ago. 
 


I enjoy seeing the amazing trees Texwisgirl over at The Run Around Ranch finds, so I'm always on the lookout for an interesting tree—of the dead variety. I found this one along the road just before I got to the fence above.



HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

hope you have a good pair of gloves for washing those dishes. my mom is very particular about her gloves. i don't wear them because they make my hands sweat terribly.

I HAVE NOT USED MY DISHWASHER IN YEARS AND NOT BECAUSE ITS BROKE. IT IS CHEAPER TO WASH BY HAND AND GETS THEM CLEANER.WE HAVE TO CONSERVE WATER AROUND HERE. TINGS WILL GET BETTER IF YOU AN HOLD ON.
