PAY ATTENTION TO DETAIL…OR YOU MIGHT LOSE YOUR HOMEWORK

This weekend was a pretty good one! ¬†Not that my previous weekends have been bad ones but last weekend was the first one I spent without crutches (spoiler alert! recap coming tomorrow!) and I was sick. ūüôĀ ¬†Not this weekend, though!! Thing 2 came over Saturday morning with my future son-in-law (henceforth known as FSIL) and my 1st grandthing because FSIL was going to mow the grass. It’s pretty tall in the backyard and I’m afraid I’m going to lose a dog in that jungle! Anyway, it finally quit raining – and he…

THE WEEKEND IN PICTURES

Hello friends! Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a good weekend. Did you guys watch the Super Bowl? Was that a crazy game or what?! What about the Puppy Bowl? You know, this was the 13th year of the Puppy Bowl and apparently the first year I pulled my head out of that hole in the ground and actually watched it. I had NO clue that all the pups were shelter dogs and that it was basically an adoption event. Where have I been?! Anyway, I finally watched it this year and now I want to live on a farm so…

WEEKEND THINGS aka ALL THE SNOW

Howdy folks! Happy Monday! This weekend was a sucker punch of snow for us. We started with a little sleet on Friday night because, hey, sleet’s fun, right? I’m just glad it waited until I got home from work to really start. I don’t know about you but just because I CAN drive in sleet and snow doesn’t mean I WANT to. It’s definitely not my favorite. And then, when I woke up on Saturday morning…. …and it didn’t stop snowing until late Saturday afternoon! We…

COLD.. WET.. WARM.. WET.. COLD

Okay, seriously. Virginia weather is Cuh-Ray-Zee. This past weekend ran the total gamut of weather phenomena. In just 3 days!!! And we all wonder why we are sniffling and feeling under the weather. Ugh. So, Thursday night and Friday were COLD!!! I was all bundled up when I went out for my walk. Except I forgot my scarf so I couldn’t feel my face. Rookie move. The rest of me was warm – well, except for my toes. Those 10 are NEVER warm. And I was wearing WOOL SOCKS!!! Uncooperative toes. :/ Anyhoo, I got out on…

WEEKEND THINGS – WHEN CAMPING PLANS GO AWRY

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Ours did not go exactly as planned but we still made the best of it. If you caught my Instagram story on Friday, you know that I was loading up my camper and we were going to spend a few days in the woods with some grand plans for hiking, eating all the noms, and drinking some wine. Aaaah…… Well, all was well and we were getting ready to hitch up and then, disaster – the slide-out wouldn’t go in. We checked all the fuses, all the connections, etc…

WEEKEND THINGS – A HURRICANE CRASHED MY PARTY

So, you did have Columbus Day off? ¬†We did and we totally enjoyed our three day weekend! Well, except for that whole Hurricane Matthew thing. Boy, we really got smacked a lot harder than we expected. I mean, I KNEW we were going to get rain but I thought the main storm was never even going to even make it into Virginia. Pretty sure the¬†news said it was going to turn hard right at North/South Carolina and turn¬†back around and¬†hit Florida and Georgia again. (Hope ya’ll are okay!!!) But, oh no. It certainly didn…
