there was a party on friday, a pow wow, in a teepee at marks.

it was taller than the house!

it was pretty cold that night, but inside the teepee the fire kept everyone really warm.

it was awesome, and also was in honor of sherns birthday. i can't wait to build a year round one in my backyard, so sosos ososo excited.

we did some yard work during the week and it turns out we have a miracle in our yard now.
The tree weeps
psst..cue the weeping tree! the tourists are coming!
Andrew made the tree cry
we also have one patch of bright yellow grass. not really sure whats up with that, but it sure is pretty.

so the goal for the rest of the weekend was to get the winnebago from pats house to ours. we hadnt really started it since october so we were expecting things to be a little dicey.

we primed the carb with some gas and it started right up! shit! drove it home through downtown without a hitch and parked it. phew.

driving the winnebago home
both homes at home
they even match! how cute!
that done, i took monday to try and relax. explored the neighborhood and the multiple cemeterys close by.

went to evergreen, which has gone to the wild.

the woods are filled with tombstone after tombstone

the floor of the woods is checkered with sunken in graves EVERYWHERE.

i kept getting scared that a skeleton hand would come up from the earth and grab my ankle. either that or i'd just fall into an open grave, i was so busy looking around and not paying attention to where i stepped

went to the crypt, where graverobbers have broken a hole through the cinderblocked door.

a few years ago the crypt was filled with skeletons, but now theres only a scant bone or two. still, its creepy.
so i left my moped running while i snapped a couple pictars at the bottom of the hill of the cemetery, when i was done and ready to leave i got on it and hit the throttle, and it cut right off. !!!!!! the ghosts of the cemetery had filled my gas tank! eeeeeee! phew thank the goodness, it started right back up. i wholly spected to get killed.
after that near death scare, i just came home.

i got news from the shop, my subaru's engine block is cracked, i am sad. i used my sadness energy and organized some things. i mean really, the damn loyale manual just came in the mail today!

i my sadness i tried to nap with the dogs but just couldn't quite fit into the snuggle chair too.
everyone sleeps in the same spot
now its just back to the work week. bummer. gotta buy a car too, ughghghghghhhh
