words to live by.......

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!!"

Wow, this weekend has been a scorcher!  Its 101 in the shade! Ouch!!  We put the horses in the barn on Thursday and have keep them cool with fans.  It isn't fit for man nor beast!!

This poor guy was trying to keep cool by perching on the stone on the side of the porch!  I am telling you, and if you live in Missouri you know exactly what I am talking about.   It's HOT!

Ok, I guess you figured by now, it's hot.  I have been staying cool and staying inside, catching up on "spring" cleaning.  Gosh I didn't realize I had so many magazines!  The catalogs I get in the mail are just ridiculous.  Hell, some of them I have never even heard of the place.  So I am thinking........they could be use to start fires in the winter.  Nope wont work, because they are in color and on slick pages they will gunk up the flew!  So, as much as I hate to in the trash they go.  Now the magazines I do read and pass them on to friends and other family members, the problem is I am about 18 months behind on at least a dozen different ones.  Answer to that......I will be in the hospital for a couple of days and then home recouping....I call this Project READ MAGAZINES!!  I should be able to get at least 6 months knocked out, I hope.

Now it is a week before the arm thing, so I will be very busy this week catching up on promised blocks.  This will keep me very busy and my mind off of the arm thing.  I am hoping down time will only be a couple of weeks so I will be as good as new by mid August!  Fingers crossed and praying hard. 

So, with that I leave you with:

My bff, Bonnie on the floor playing with the puppies!  You see her black tank top....well it was white by time she got up, lol!


  1. LOL...I understand the white on the black tank top, except mine comes off of Miss Max when I cuddle with her! I like to take my magazines to the library to recycle, and they are always glad to get them no matter how old they are. Good idea to catch up while you are healing...hope all goes well!

  2. ...and yes...it is so stinkin hot here in Missouri...it's pretty bad when you don't want to get back out to go to the movies or go to the pool!

  3. Guess what? It's stinkin' hot in Nebraska too! UGH! I have been sticking to indoor decluttering. My husband would prefer I work on the garage, but it is TOO DANG HOT!!

    Take care of yourself...and just focus on how much better it will be once the surgery is over and you can get back to the activities you love!
