Murder Can Be Inconvenient!

I may have bitten off more than I can chew ....  No pics today, as I am having to pace myself writing. The computer is not keeping up with me. Odd, since I don't even know how to really type. I just peck it out with two fingers. Downloading a picture is out of the question.

I am so pleased with my blanket chest and doggie bed. The other part of the chest is coming along, if a bit slowly. Maybe I shouldn't have tried to do this while simultaneously reworking my sewing room and painting the outside of the building. Oh, and laundry today, as well. I like a good challenge, but I am whipped tonight. I don't even have the energy to nag HeWho.

Really tired. I am still waiting for him to help me hang those upper cabinets in my sewing room. There are four, but they are connected and heavier than I can manage on my own. He still has not hung my stem glass holder under the kitchen cabinet ..... another chore that requires two people to get it right.

I am not sure if this made the national news, but I had limited outside time today due to a murderer loose nearby. As far as I know the manhunt is still going on tonight. Made more difficult by the rain that started as it was growing dark. Lots of woods and farmland around here. The schools might be closed tomorrow. They were in lockdown today and the busses did not run.

I had to keep my store locked and I couldn't sand the drawers .... well, I could have inside, then clean up the mess. Hopefully I can sand tomorrow. I did get four more shutters painted and ready to hang, but I did not cook.

The murderer's (alleged) truck was found just one mile from my exit. He is alleged to have killed three men in Kansas City last night, then a local man about 5 miles from here this morning. All locked in tonight and me with no gun! Just wasp spray and a bad attitude. They better catch this guy, I have stuff to do!!

They spent almost ten minutes on the local (St. Louis) news tonight talking about the murder and manhunt. Scary stuff!

Yikes! I heard a snippet of that on the news, but I was in the kitchen and didn't hear the location. Keep that wasp spray handy!

that would be rather unnerving. I think you could probably do a lot of damage with wasp spray, maybe a baseball bat too. Then again you've got those dogs to warn you and keep you safe. Doesn't sound like a good nights sleep is coming your way...be safe lady.

hahaha..I could probably better defend myself with wasp spray and bad attitude anyway. Stay safe!

no guns here either. I imagine a baseball bat or golf club could do some damage though.
