Sights and Sounds!9:16 AM
Have you ever wondered what it's like living on an Air Force Base? I mean do you ever wonder what we see, what we hear, what we do? I thought today I would share a little of our daily noise around here, just so you can understand how powerful these Jets are, because they are clear on the other side of the base, actually on the other side of the street. Here let me show you how far we are from the flight line.
As you can see we are quite a ways away from the Flight Line so you would think when the Jets were taking off or being worked on, we wouldn't even hear right? Right? WRONG! LOL
Good thing is that you get used to the sound even at night when you're trying to sleep and all you hear is this thundering boom all over.
And right about the time you hear that you usually see this in the sky....I don't think I'll ever get used to seeing the F16's so close, the kids just love them.
Now look at the sky in that pic above, that's directly in front of my house, across the street.......see how it looks greyish......now if you walk to the back yard, then you get THIS kind of sky.
Who knew that just a few steps from each other, the sky would be so different looking? I'm loving the moon though :)
Anyway, moving on, a couple of you have asked me some questions and I didn't have the chance to answer before, so I'll do that now. Quite a few like the borders I use on my photos and wanted to know how I did that. I use PaintShop Pro, but I'm sure any other graphics program will do, I have a couple of borders like those above that I paste my photos into. That's all, it's nothing weird or hard to do and just because I love you all, I've uploaded 2 of the frames online, just click on the links below and save it to your computers!

If you have any problems or questions just email me ok?
Others wanted to know about my blogs and the templates I use, whether I made my own templates etc. YES, I do. I taught myself to make them about a year ago and though it was confusing at first trying to learn all the HTML and what does what, but I'm glad I did it, this way I don't have to pay everytime I feel like changing, which if you've been reading my blog for a while, you know happens quite often LOL
Last night I watched Christy: Return to Cutter Gap and though I really enjoyed it I was a big confused because of some many changes to the main actors. I loved David Grantland in the first series and in this one I wasn't too thrilled with him, mainly because it was a completely new actor but also the way he was portrayed was just so different to the first one. Weird!
Where I found myself rooting for Christy and David in the first series, in this one I'm rooting for Christy and Dr MacNeill.....how about that? Either it's a huge change or I'm wishy washy *shrug* LOL
I'm trying to get my water drinking in but it's SO hard for me, I am not a water person at ALL. I managed 4 glasses yesterday and thought I was going to drown, I spent every 5 minutes in the bathroom and felt like I was floating.....but I did feel better, it made me not as hungry as before, hence I wasn't running around eating all day. Guess it's all about balance right?
I have a house to clean and laundry to do, I also need to mop and sweep the floors but I think I'll leave the mopping for tomorrow, when I got up this morning both kids had climbed into bed with me and both pugs had come along for the ride. Next thing I knew there was giggling and laughing, dogs chasing their tails and I tried to get in on the game but ended up straining my lower back. You ever have that happen? You bend down or reach down for something and get this shooting pain in your lower back, makes you sick to your stomach and it's hard to walk around afterwards. So instead of adding to it by mopping, I think I'll give my back a rest today and mop tomorrow.
I better get going, have a great wednesday everyone :)
