Zip lining

Sunday, August 15, 2010

Last Tuesday we went Zip line riding on Wildcat Mountain in NH. It was a BLAST, not to mention cool and refreshing to the humid day. You take the ski lift 1/2 way up the mountain then walk up a steep hill to get to the zip line gate. There is NO turning back once you get up there either.
My sister and I up at the top before getting in line

All Strapped in and ready to go!

The I Love It Here sign is for a contest to win a New Hampshire Dream vacation worth $2500. You take pictures around vacation/tourist places around New Hampshire and upload it to Visit NH dot gov and hopefully people will vote for your picture.

Then we went Tourist shopping in North Conway. Had lousy lunch service at Wine Thyme, found a really neat toy in a toy store and walked around in an olde country store called Zebs.

That was a GREAT day!

It was a busy week

Saturday, August 14, 2010

My parents, sister and niece were here for a week but went back home. We had a GREAT week. We did a lot of walking, shopping, browsing and eating.
Sunday we stayed around the house and chatted and discussed where we would be going this week. We took a short scenic train ride and part of the group went to a blueberry social for desert. It was old home week in the town here so they have events and things to do almost every day.

Monday we headed to Meredith NH so my parents could take a boat ride on the M/V Mt Washington. Well not a good day. We parked in the main parking lot at 10:40AM. They got on the boat at 12:05. My sister, niece, daughter, grandson and I went shopping then stopped for lunch, got a phone call that my parents were through with their boat ride but they didn't know where they were. Long story is they got off at the wrong dock in the wrong town. So we go back to the car and find parking tickets, $15 fine. The tickets were written at 1:10PM, it was a 3 hour time limit but we were shorted. Then we go to pick up my parents. They just got off the boat, don't know why but they didn't think it looked familiar.

Here's the boat:

We got back to the house, rested for an hour or so then went out to our favourite place for seafood.

We took family pictures of my parents with the great grandsons, grandchildren and my sister and I.

I'll post more tomorrow

PS, We wrote down a time line of when we parked, a phone call, a picture we took, when the ticket was written. My niece called the police station when we returned to talk to them about this ticket. Then my niece and daughter went down to the police station a couple days later to meet with the officer and discuss the ticket. It was ripped up and thrown out by the officer and they were told "try not to do that again"

    Sounds like a great week, Robin!

The MV Mount Washington is a great ride! Too bad your parents got confused with the myriad stops. Hope you didn't have to drive too far to pick them up.

Too much negativity!

Wednesday, August 04, 2010

Surely if you are having a bad day you can find SOMETHING positive! Well apparently some people can't so I guess I have to cut out reading some blogs and posting on pages.
Posting so much negativity just brings you down more and reflects on others too because then I feel bad. I realize there are some things in your life you can't control but to post negativity every single day is just a downer.

Life is too short to stress yourself with people who don't even deserve to be an issue in your life..:)

This week is busy getting ready for my parents to visit and both my kids & grandsons. it will be so much fun!

I'm hungry!

Sunday, August 01, 2010

It's 9PM, I had dinner at 5:30 and I'm hungry again but I can't eat anything because I need to have blood work tomorrow and it's one of those fasting blood work things. I'll have to take some yogurt with me tomorrow to eat after the draw.

I bought a box of Quaker pancake mix the other day so my son made some this morning and they were really good. He made the low fat recipe that used the egg white.

This week will be busy, I have to get ready for my parents visit next week. Cleaning making up a menu, making phone calls for tours for them and all kinds of fun stuff.

Have a GREAT week everyone!

    Hi you! Took in my invoice, will be getting paid for the ones from June "soon" and the July ones "also soon". Have 11 to get finished before Ramadan starts so they will get a new bill "soon" with the remaining ones. THEN I'll be free to go and play in someone else's pool.

Where are you going for tours with your parents? Pancakes - sounds so yummy!

    When I have this problem I drink a lot of water. It helps fill up the void in your stomach. Get away from the TV! The commercials are made to make you want junk.
