I am already tired of the snow so some pictures of my flowers from this year are called for. Something to look forward too.
Another long day. I spent all day yesterday listing items from my MIL's estate in my store and answering questions about some Skookum dolls I am selling. Today it was back over their going through things and tossing old cards. We haven't gotten any help from my BIL and today I hauled down a bag to but in the garbage. He was laying on the couch and insisted on going through the items before I tossed them. I told him if he was up there helping us he would know what was in the bag already. Garbage goes out tonight so I hope he gets it done. I figure if we get most of the personal items gone and things everyone wants to keep sorted the auctioneer can have it on the rest of the items.
Check out her beautiful table. Man I wish my house was big enough for it. It was her Mom's and we sure hate to part with it. My house is small though.
Below is a picture of Ricks uncle. He helped build roads in the Black Hills back in 1918. We are either going to donate this to a museum or get it framed and hang it. I would like to keep it. I love the bead work on the indian's clothes. Imagine the hours it took to do that. So pretty.
I go to work tonight. I am hoping for a nap as I am tired. These 16 hours days are getting me done in. It still seems so strange and awful to be going through my MIL's things. Wish she was here to help me and explain some of the things we have found. I miss her terribly.
The caucus is over and I haven't gotten a single phone call today. How nice that it. They were good about interrupting our supper about 3 times a minute. Now they can go bug some other state.
Well, time to go get my laundry in before I work. Rick is making supper. I am sure it isn't on my diet but today who cares. I am too tired to think about it. Hope you all enjoyed the flowers.
