Tuesdays Thoughts

Mom and I went shopping today, one of our favorite activities.  We had a few things to return and always seem to come away with more then what we took back.  :o)  Guess that is a sign of a successful shopping trip.  After leaving the dress shop we had to go to the feed store to pick up some things for the new pasture that we are putting in.  It's not huge but it will give the boys a little more grazing space.

They always have interesting things at the feed store.  Today they had six baby goats, or I guess they are called kids.  It was feeding time so Mom got to hold the bottle for two of them, and no I didn't have my camera with me.......grrrrrrrrrrrr......  After that we had to visit Stuart the huge bunny that has been the mascot there for quite a few years.  He has the run of the store usually unless someone brings in a female bunny to give away and then he is very naughty marking his territory so gets sent to his cage with the door closed instead of open.....He just never learns.  Today his door was open and he was half laying out it so we got to pat him and scratch him behind the ears.

We have a new Tractor Supply that is due to open soon.  They were working on hot topping the parking lot today when we went by.  The only one I have ever been to is in Florida and found some cute boots and clothes for the grands so I am excited about this one.  (Doesn't take much to excite me does it?!)

Pam over at Pam's Ponderings had this list in her post today so I thought I would do it too.  Thanks Pam!!!

1. I was so excited when I bought new sheets, pillow cases, blankets and bedpreads at TJ Maxx yesterday for the lake house!  The quality is great and the prices were really good!

2. If I had some "mad money" to spend right now, I'd buy:  now, I'm talking about a lot of mad money here, doesn't cost a penny to talk about it, I'd buy a nice big RV and take a road trip around to visit all of my blogging buddies!  Don't worry, I wouldn't stay long!!
3. I really shouldn't have walked quite so far this morning.  It was fine going but it was a LONG way back!

4. Anything sad that I read about animals made me cry.

5. The antics of my grandchildren made me laugh a lot.

6.  Family  is awesome.

7. I just cannot believe how I am 59 years old and don't feel a day over 35!

8. I'm really looking forward to our trip to Tennesse in June.

9. The weather right now is raining but it could be snow so I'm not complaining!

10. My mood right now is happy for the many blessings God has bestowed on me, good health, wonderful hubby, great kids, beautiful grand kids, food to eat, a warm place to sleep, family that is close knit, my horses, good friends and a Father in heaven to look out for me to name a few.

11. I couldn't believe it when I got on the scales yesterday and hadn't lost a pound!  :o(

12. And now I am going to: read below:

Almost time for American Idol so guess I will get my jammies on and see who does the best singing tonight. I'll have to DVR Dancing With The Stars and then see who gets the boot tonight.  When we were horse showing we used to say we got "the gate" if we didn't place in a class.  Guess this is kind of the same, I don't think they win anything if they get kicked off.   :o(

I'm not watching Idol this year - can't abide Ellen. But I've replaced that addiction with Biggest Loser.

Sounds like a fun day with your mom - BTW, did she get the CD yet?

We finally had a beautiful day today, and supposedly will have one tomorrow.

Did you see my note on your last post about where Kev was last week? He called last night and has a horrific sinus infection - is terribly miserable. Please put him on your prayer list!

Needled Mom said...

Great list!!!

It sounds like you and your mom had a very successful day shopping. I love shopping with my mom too, but I think we are a bad influence on each other... ;)

I just haven't ever been able to get into Idol or DWTS. Seems like everyone else is so don't know what is wrong with me. Don't answer!!!!

Can you believe that we are suppose to have a little rain tonight? It is very unusual for us to have any this month and it is cool too. This front will wreak havoc on the rest of the country as it moves east.

When do the boys get back? Must be any day now.

I'll bet your mom had fun feeding the kids. Sorry that you did not have the camera handy.

Enjoy your week. xox

Enjoyed your list of things. Think I might do this one. Your town sounds nice. We have a large Western Farm & Ranch store near us that carries a lot of clothing. I love to look at the baby items, even though I have no babies to buy for any more.

Mrs Mom said...

MM- you'll be getting some love in the mail from us in a bit. ;) Must get Dear Husband's surgery out of the way TOMORROW!!! and then life can get back to "normal" (whatever THAT is!)

Will update tomorrow night how things go. But wanted to say I saw that comment, and we'll hook you up! ;)

Love you muchly. And for those of you who don't really know Midlife Mom, or might be new here? There is NOT a Finer Blogging Buddy on the planet. I can promise you THAT!!

You're gonna love having Tractor Supply around!!! My dh used to work at our TSC and it quickly became my favorite store, even if just to go look around and kill time!

Just found your blog! It's great! Stop by mine and visit sometime! www.crazyforthecountry.com

I love tractor supply and what is with them.. we had a new store open just about 15 miles from here and another one going up about 15 miles in the other direction. be careful, this will be a store that is dangerous for folks like you and me......
