How many times do you write the wrong year when it first changes? I find myself doing that many times until I finally get it through my head. Someone told me once that they go through their first month of checks and write the year in on all of them. Sounds like it might be a good idea for me.
We had a nice quiet New Years Eve here at home. We watched a couple of movies that were on tv. I had never seen the Jaws movies about the sharks back quite a few years ago so it was interesting although rather gory. The interesting part was to see the hair styles, clothing styles and the cars that they were driving. I must Google it and see what year those movies were made. That was easy, it was 1975. You’ve got to love Google!
The big thing that I noticed was that no one wore a life jacket while boating, water skiing or floating around out on a raft. Were we really that foolish back then? I have a hard and fast rule at the camp, NO ONE goes out in the boat without a life vest on. NO ONE. I know it’s not ‘cool’ but but that is the way it is. It doesn’t do you much good if you get thrown into the water and the life vest is under the seat. I can be such a dictator at times! ha!
Someone sent me a few pictures from long ago that I thought I would share with you. Yep, that’s me in the middle with the very curly hair, my oldest sister on the right and my next oldest sister on the left. I think this was taken in from of St. John’s Church here in town.
This one was taken at the beach somewhere, maybe in Canada where some of my cousins live. Again I am the one with the curly hair, I hated it back then but wish it was still that curly now. My mother was expecting my brother who is the baby of the family. After four girls I think they were pretty excited to finally have a boy. We didn’t spoil him or anything……
Here we are all grown up. I was the middle child which explains a lot…….. I would guess this picture was taken about 20 years ago. Oh to be size 10 again…….waaaaaaaaaaaa!
We went to the lake today to check on the cottage. The weather was so mild that I could have worked in my flower garden if I had wanted to. Everything looked fine and the alarm was on. Sometimes when the power goes out I don’t think it resets itself so we check often.
It was so peaceful there. The Hubs was working on his IPad and I was puttering around, making the beds up with fresh sheets, Swiffering, checking the food in the cupboards and bringing home things that needed to be eaten before next summer, cleaning the toilets as well water leaves a lovely ring and just plain enjoying myself. It was the opening day of ice fishing and there isn’t a lick of ice yet! I can assure you there are some fishermen that are pretty bummed about that.
Son brought over the Christmas pictures and downloaded them onto my computer after we got home so you can bet your boots my next post will be about Christmas. That’s a warning but I promise to only put in a few……….
