The keyring has a small lanyard on it, so you can hook it to your purse (for those of you who are like me and always losing your keys ;o) Our liability insurance premium comes due next month, and I am really sweating this one out as the money just isn't there. We're not quite where we thought we'd be at this time last year with groups already scheduled in advance and on site donations coming in (this post). We have about $65 so far, most of it from an unexpected and generous donation by a reader (can I thank you by name on the blog Ms. Aussie?) Although I am an interpreter for an elementary school, it was not always so. My background contains enough legal and administrative experience to know that I do NOT wish to have visitors/operate Epic Farms without liability insurance. I know of a number of non-profits who were forced by their finances to let their insurance lapse, but to me it is a very dangerous game of [one wrong move] roulette that could put you out of business in a heartbeat. Not to mention completely ruin your life. I'm hoping the more places we have the widget, the more likely we'll be to get some online donations. Guess we'll find out soon enough, right?
And now allow me to recap my Whattaweek one day at a time:
Sunday was sneaky and snarky: Seems I have a stalker...(remember small problem?)
Monday was meanieweenie day: I got shot (twice). Cortisone injection in each hip for Bursitis, which is terribly painful. I can't say I enjoyed the shot either (because OW) but hopefully I'll be a bit more mobile with only Arthur to contend with. I did, however, have to really fight the urge to laugh while grooming Sara that morning. Bella is quite the jealous tart, and was just about to take a nice big chunk out of Sara's *ahem* boo-tay when I yelled (her mouth was wide open, but I wasn't quite quick enough on the draw with the camera phone). Bella tried to convince me that I completely misread her intent, but for some reason I just didn't buy it:
Tuesday was...(is) tragic: Because it's missing. I'm sorry, did I have a Tuesday this week? Apparently I didn't as I have absolutely no clue what I did that day (and how sad is that? *rolls eyes*). Must have been due to left over trauma from the shots ;o)
Wednesday was one of those whiny "Why Me" days: Sponsored by; Who DOES this stuff? Coming around the corner of the house, I was blinded by the sun hitting a discarded piece of one [lousy] inch wide Z-Flashing from the patio roof that was laying at just the right angle to catch the sun. Unable to see for a moment, I stepped right into the shallow hole at the water cut off valve - the one I had been watching for until I was blinded by the light *SNARL* - and twisted my ankle. So now I'm hipping and hobbling around like an idiot. Raspberries! Of course it did leave me with an interesting question to contemplate: Does this make DH a flasher?? He put it there after all. Bwah-ha-ha-ha *cough* sorry.
Thursday was a day to be thankful: We got RAIN! Funny how sometimes the sky is so pretty right before the bottom falls out...
Saturday was spectacular sunset day: It's amazing how the same sky can be so varied depending on the direction of your gaze. I tilted the camera for the first shot...
