Wowser it is cold!

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

I am really using my heated seats in the car! I never thought I would, but apparently a fat butt does not mean an insulated one. How do cows stay warm if those leather seats are so cold in my garage????

I feel that this year is going to be better for me, I have decided that it WILL be,, so many wonderful people in my life that helps me realize I am so blessed.

    Heated seats oh how CUSHY!!! that must be really good for the TUSHY.
I bet I would love those for the winter months.
We too have it cold but now it is Thursday and we are warming up. We have no snow on the ground and it is a Balmy 21 degrees right now.
I hope work is getting back to routine for you and the hand is much better by now. Thanks LINDA for being my friend. Pat in Maine emoticon emoticon

    It's so strange. It was starting to get cold, and then we had some weird kind of front move up here in Seattle. It was almost 60 yesterday.

I suspect we will end up with a colder February and March than we did December and January.

    I cn see you run out in your jammies and robe and turn on the heated seats run back in get dressed for work grab your lunch and head out and oooooooooohh and ahhhhhhhhhh as you melt into those warm seats. Wish the darn leather sofa was heated like your car seat.

How do you rate your home since it's been insulated do you feel it's warmer?

Hugs and enjoy the day.

no snow, no sun either

Monday, January 02, 2012

Thank goodness we have lots of clocks and watches here: cannot tell if it is night or day,, no sun at all since last Saturday for about an hour..
No snow either,, freezing rain..
Since this is a leap year, I am going to look forward to little things, try to work harder for a new thing ,,, maybe a different workout..
I am also continuing on making a pointed effort to say something nice to ten people a day,, strangers if at all possible.

    That's awesome! I don't think either one would be any trouble for your coz 1) you are always busy doing lots of interesting things and 2) saying nice thhings to 10 people a day would came naturally coz you are such a nice, friendly person yourself! emoticon emoticon

What's in store?

Sunday, January 01, 2012

Not one of us knows what is in store for us this year. Will we be left here next December or leave for our better life, as assured us at our birth? Living "as if" is the only way to do it.

AS IF I will never see a person again.
AS IF I will lose my eyesight, hearing, or senses of touch, smell and taste tomorrow.
AS IF I have only today to tell others what they mean to me.
AS IF I do not have the luxury of making my wrongs," right".

Each person is given 24 hours a day, one at a time. If they allow others to control their feelings, actions or everyday life, they have just given that other person THEIR 24 hours ! When I read about people that are emotionally or verbally abused by another person, I see that one guy got 48, the other zip!!
If we are allowed to exist another 364 more days, we have that much time to make that many choices, all of this is our gift; what we CHOOSE to do with it, is our reward or punishment for our choices!! Cannot get any easier than that..

Only 7 1/2 months to go!

Saturday, December 31, 2011

Last night I reserved our cabins for vacation next August!! Most people do it a few months beforehand, but the resort in the Upper Peninsula only has 12 cabins and this one is the largest one for the price. They will call me next spring to re-confirm I still want it and I am getting excited to go already! The other cabin we are staying in for only two nights, is only about a three hour drive form here, but I reserved it also, to assure I get them back-to-back. We will drive to the U.P first, then when we leave there, we will drive back down over the Mackinac Bridge to Indian River,MI.. about a half hour from the bridge,,
when we leave there, we only have a three hour drive home.. DD gets carsick, so this is the best way for her to enjoy it.
In my mind I am already there, unpacking he car and jumping in Lake Superior for a quick swim!!

    A swim at this time doesn't sound so good but then in August yes it will sound just lovely.
I bet you are getting excited.

    That's great that you have something to look forward to already! I can count the number of times I've been in the U.P. on two hands. I would really like to take a tour of it one of these vacations and get to know my state a little better.
