Went to hear the "Doo Dads" last evening with frineds at Bay City Recreation Area(state park). IT began to sprinkle just as we were leaving their campsite, so the concert was indoors. It was blues, jazzy Gospel, folksy music. Banjo, mandolin, guitar and base fiddle. Little kids were tapping their toes and clapping, pre-teens too.
We went back to their fifth wheel and made a campfire, visited for a couple hours. These friends are retired and camp most of he summer, live about a 45 minute drive from me.
The time with them messed up my prep plans so I had to cross the window washing and baking off my list. Speeding it up today, putting all dry stock in garage next to car ready to pack in the morning,,
it is a short drive from my home to Indian River, only about 3 1/2 hours, but wnat to get checked in my cabin and unpacked in time to make it to non Mass at the Shrine in the Woods.
Off to the store and more packing and cleaning.

another bee-you-tea-full day!!

Thursday, August 11, 2011

Got a haircut; my friend who is the manager of the Beauty Academy saw what a weenie job of root touch-up I did a couple days ago, so she let teh student do it and then because they were so slow, business-wise, she cut, did a complete color, styled and put all these special conditioners on my hair. Total cost to me:$7.00. The price of a shampoo and haircut!!

Big tip for her today..

got mom's lawn mowed,, two acres of heat and flying asthma inducer.. but it is finished until I get back home.

DD is at her Dad's for a luncheon for a wonderful cousin of theirs from Texas.. He was at our home when we were married and I love him.

Picked some raspberries, trained some pickle vines and watered tomatoes. pay some of moms bills, and organize dry stock in tub for trip.

Got to work today and boss did not give me the week off on my schedule, so I told another boss-type person that they could have my schedule and keep it, I would be too far away to need it. They were very nice and covered all my time off.. boss was conveniently off today after posting schedules..

I was very anxious about it for a couple days and now I feel better, not in a rush to do anything.
Praying for all teh travelers ahead o fme on the road next Monday: I know I-75 north of Saginaw,Michigan like my own back yard. Since my dad and a former boyfriend of mine were police officers, I know all the hidey-holes and speed traps, which counties ticket for one mile over the speed limit, etc.

Since I will be traveling early Monday morning, there will be no traffic going north.. returning on a MOnday also..

I wil try to remember all of my adventures to share with all.. and believe me, ask fellow Sparker, Debgil, if my stories rate as adventures...

Where the heck is my darned fan???????????????

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

I think my fan went the way of my big pepper shaker sometime when we were not looking!! We have looked everywhere for that darned thing.. well, obviously not EVERYWHERE , or we would have found it by now!! SO glad we are having a garage sale,, I want to hear echoes in my basement this winter,,
I guess I will be taking Kristy's little Robofan with me on vacation,,, smaller , but has a nightlight and is oscillating too. Got to go wrap Christmas gifts to take with me. I may need a shoehorn and a can of crisco to get all that stuff in my car..Picture Goofy when he packs his jalopy to take on vacation!!!


The worst part is over though: I tried on swimsuits to take with me yesterday, modeled for DD.. not a pretty sight but she is going to earn her inheritance somehow!! She can still see today, so I guess I did not burn her corneas off.. it should be safe to go public in front of some poor, unsuspecting strangers on the shores of Lake Superior.
I DID want a vacation alone, I think I have found the way to actually have the whole lake to myself!! Fat old lady swimsuit and two sturdy German old lady legs as white as snow,, translucent,even!!!

    I am glad to hear you guys are considering decluttering too, its something Im constantly having to do as I come my my packrattedness genetically. Glad to hear you got a suit and are dreaming of the lake!

    Laughs hard at the swimsuit part. Remember it's not what we look like for others it's who we are inside and out. Even if you do lose Pepper shakers. Kristy will find it you wait and see.

    LOL you crack me up. You're going to get to the beach and you're going to look around and realize that you are HOT! It's never as bad as we think it is, trust me. And even if it is as bad as you think it is, so what? You'll never see those people again and if the people that you will see again care that much then maybe you should see them again anyway. As my husband says, "it doesn't matter what you look like as long as you own it." This is coming from a total engineer who has a panic attack every morning because he grew his hair 1 inch longer than his old style because I like it but he thinks it's just not practical. But, he is right. Strut it lady, be you and love you and if you do that than the rest will follow. (I wish there was a "You Rock" emoticon, I'd put it here)
