The local little ski hill opened last night. Son #1 and the Chairman went to check it out for a bit today. One of our neighbors also did the same and left with a broken wrist. Lets hope the men in this house come home unscathed.
Daughter #1 went on a venture to another state with some young people. I miss her already. But I stalk her on the phone to see where she's at. Daughter #2 is having time with a set of grandparents.
I went out to breakfast today with a dear friend. I LOVE going out for breakfast for some reason. I do it about once/year if that. I could eat breakfast foods twice a day for the rest of my life and be happy. Bacon? What's not to love? Pancakes with syrup. Eggs with add-ons. Oh my.
I ate too much the past ten days. Do I regret it? Not really.
We had family company and special company and I felt like my name was "Martha" a few times. No, not my friend Martha. Another Martha we read about - even with the best of planning ahead.
I have an honest dentist. I went there yesterday morning at the crack of dawn and thought for sure I had a cavity and was going to have to go back. Nope! Just some sensitivity (my teeth, not my attitude in case you're confused), and he gave me a bag full of goods to take home. The hygienist asked when I last flossed since my teeth were in such good shape and I replied, 'well you did it the last time so you should know!'. Surely I jest. Or not.
We had a super New Year's Eve party last night. I love/hate New Year's eve parties because I love my friends but I also love my fleece sheets calling around 10:00 pm. I wore the same dress/vest I wore ringing in 2015. I'm not sure why I remember small details like that. But anyway, I figured 2015 was a nice year so maybe the karma will help 2016 to also be good. I'm superstitious like that.
Well I'll add on a few pics that were on my camera. I believe this is my 1, 198th post, so we hit a milestone a couple Monday's from now. Thanks for tagging along! And I hope 2016 is a good year for you!
