Wacky Wednesday

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Co-worker came over last night and we are working on sewing her a bow case for her bow and arrows...her latest adventure. Got some of it cut out last night. She in charge of finding a some foam for the bottom of the case. It's fabric and has pink in it. Little nervous about it but it's a challenge and we can do it. Hope it turns out nice.

Mom's been hinting strongly that she wants me to take her someplace. Probably hunting for bras again. So tonight is first free when I talk to her this AM will ask her if she wants to go to Curves or for me to take her someplace. I have taken her so many times to get her fitted professionally for bras and us fitting her and she never likes them afterwards and ends up wearing the same old ones from years ago. My patience seems short yet I feel guity that I haven't spent much time with her recently. So I will offer to do whatever she wants to do tonight.

Usually after I process it in my mind - we got and have a lovely time together. It's just the thought of taking her out.

I know she's been busy cleaning and getting ready for my daughter to come home. She is so looking forward to it.

A good note is that she walked down again last evening for wii bowling again. So glad they are pulling her in to do it. I think it is good for her to do activities on her own. Maybe because we haven't had time she is reaching out to others.

    Have a great day Kathleen. You will have to post pics of your bow carrier when you are finished. It should be awesome being hot pink. She'll be the talk of her archery buddies.

Curves is a good idea because you can get exercise too. It's a win, win situation.

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Co-worker is coming over after work so we can work on sewing her a bow case. Yes she's now into target shooting with a bow and arrows. Of course it is pink and she has pink arrows. Not sure how I got talked into this. Before I knew it she had purchased the fabric and I'm roped into it. I sew but not sure about all this. So we'll jump in head first and see what comes out.

Down to one vehicle right how. Brake lines went on the truck so hubby took it to get fixed and there are some other issues so they won't work on it. It's old but it keeps going. So hubby gonna look around to see if someone else will fix it or what to do.

Yesterday we had rain and snow! Miss the gorgeous weather of the weekend. Thankfully the snow didn't stick.

Hubby helped me pull off clip art to make up electronic invitation for Christmas Dinner for work. Will e-mail them out today to everyone. Turned out nice I think.

Off to make it a great day!

Magnificient Monday

Monday, November 12, 2012

Had a wonderful time with son and dil and hubby. The weather was so beautiful. Being out in nature was so nice. Went to Red River Gorge in KY. Did a lot of hiking in nature. The landscape is gorgeous. The hills and rock formations were incredible. Son made it up part way and DIL and I made it to the top of natural bridge. It was a tough hike up hill but was way worth it at the top. There was so many neat trails everywhere you look.

Now back home to rain and much cooler weather this week.

It was a wonderful break. Good time with the kids.

Off to make it a great day! Back to work! No days off for us. Wish we did though!

    You remind me that I need to get out in nature more. I think my soul longs for that. But my brain is addicted to the stupid computer!

    Sounds like you had a beautiful time with the kids. And all while doing something healthy, too. Hope you got some nice photos while you were out on the trails. Wishing you a terrific week.

Fantastic Friday

Friday, November 09, 2012

Woke up early and have a jump start to my three day weekend. Starting to do some of the short exercise videos on SparkPeople and I like them...along with my other exercises.

Leaving around 10 to head to our son and DIL for our 3 day weekend at Red River Gorge in Kentucky. Renting a cabin and doing some hiking, hanging out and spending time together. Looking forward to the time away. Hoping to relax and refresh. Nature typically calms me down and refocuses me.

Son asked what kind of snack I eat...well I eat fruits and raw nuts and veggies. What kind of pop do I drink....really don't...drink water or tea. Guess I have changed my life a lot.

Off to make it a great weekend!

Terrific Thursday

Thursday, November 08, 2012

We have made it through the week...almost...

Got through Curves with Mom and she did OK. Says she really enjoy watching WII bowling and a friend is going to teach her how to play after breakfast today at the main house so she can start playing with them So thrilled she has matched up with someone. We haven't had a lot of time to spend with her and maybe she's reaching out some. So want her to get involved a little and find a buddy to maybe go out or go to their activities with so she doesn't rely on us for everything. Daughter called her last night and they talked for 20 minutes on how much fun she had.

Haven't heard any more on the guess we're still on...and there's been no glitches.

BFF sent me flowers yesterday. I was so surprised! Brought tears to my eyes and then I felt guilty...boy she must have thought I was a basket case...kinda was. What a wonderful thing she did. Really helped to cheer me up. She is the bestest!

Off to make it a great day!
