We had a great time out in the sunshine snowmobiling on Monday. It was almost the perfect day for it, could have used a bit more snow as we lost some due to rain a few days back. But all in all it was great other then one minor mishap………..
I cannot be forced to say who tipped over on their machine…….
I really can’t, that’s my story and I am sticking to it……
Thankfully Son got
me I mean got that person out of the ditch……
We stopped for a little rest just to enjoy the sunshine.
Had to get a picture with my two favorite pals.
This is on D’s machine, it was on there when they bought it from a
redneck guy. I think I should take it off before D actually knows what it means!
I always like to get a picture of these birds nests that are up on the power line. They are HUGE!
This is the snowmobile clubhouse.
I love this shot.
Checking out the hill we were going to go down. It was a pretty steep hill so Son drove D’s sled down and then came back up the hill with me and drove his own down. Miss T was riding with her Dad on this trip.
It was so nice to get outside!
I have been rearranging my kitchen cupboards this week and have some things that I rarely, if ever use. They were given to me by a friend years ago and it’s a shame that I don’t put them to good use.
I decided to move them to the basement but not packed away but on some shelves that I have down there. It cleared up space that I need for things that I do use all the time. I am going to try to make a point of using some of them though if only for my enjoyment. I have always liked pretty dishes, especially old ones.
I feel a rant coming on and you know I just can’t keep these things in no matter how hard I try. I watched a new show on the television last night about birthday parties for young children. It was so over the top I could have barfed! This little girl was 5 years old and the mother spent $38,000 for the birthday party! Yes, you read right, $38,000!!!!!! The invitations alone were over $3,000. The little gals dress was $750.00. I can’t remember how much the cake was or the costumes or ice sculpture or the horse drawn carriage but at the end of the show it gave that total. Is that obscene or what?
Now maybe I am all wet and if the parents can afford to spend that kind of money it’s none of my business, they didn’t ask me, but in this economy when we all know so many people being out of work and down on their luck with no real prospects in sight I just find this a bit much. There, I feel much better now. BUT really do you find this to be a bit crazy? What do people think that are wondering how they are going to pay the rent at the end of the month and see this overindulgence? Good grief.
The Hubs just handed me a newspaper article about portly pooches. ‘Man’s best friend is obese. Pets are getting fatter and owners are finding it tricky to count kitty calories and to cut kibble.’ When I was a kid you never saw a fat dog, they were too busy out running their legs off with us kids, playing games and chasing whatever. There weren’t any leash laws so dogs made the rounds visiting people in the neighborhood hoping for a homemade donut or cookie. We had a dog named Ginger for many years and she did this regularly. Everyone in town knew her and she knew the ones that would give her a tidbit or two. She always came back home after her rounds and slept on the porch on the steps or in the cold months behind the wood stove in the kitchen. Now that I think of it she did get a little round in her later years……….
