Think good thoughts.

  I had a terrible time shooting this matter where I put it, it was one thing or another.  But, I think it really is good rules for all.

    It's been a quiet day here on the old homestead. The Irishman woke up not feeling good, all sinusey and scratchy throat.  My stomach is still a bit queasy. All in all, we were a couple of low key characters today. As you can see, we wound up deciding not to go to the concert. Just way too late a starting time and not feeling at the top of the game, made driving into the city on a snowy night not all that appealing. We wouldn't have gotten back home until about 3 AM.

   We sat around reading a lot. The Irishman did a clean and conditioning job on his work boots with mink oil, or Saddle soap first, I guess, then the oil.  I made bread and cooked a lovely supper of plain chicken breasts with leftover roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli.  We watched a Brad Pitt movie called The Mexican, with Julia Roberts and Gene Hackman and Tony Soprano. (LOL--I can't for the life of me think of the actors name, and I know it as well as my own. I must be tired.)  Later we watched Finding Nemo.  Now I am finishing up here and getting ready for bed. I am tired and we have a big day tomorrow. (Well...not really big.  But you know, lol)  A 10 Am meeting and then we'll go to lunch and to a movie to celebrate the Irishman's birthday. It's not til Monday, and he doesn't know that I'm throwing a surprise party for him next Saturday, combo  BD/Valentine's Day. It's been very last miniute, but I wasn't sure if I'd really be up to doing it....

   Carol--I checked the settings on Dragon Woman's Kitchen  and sure enough, somehow the access setting got changed. When I read your comment about not getting into it without an invite, I was confused, because it has never been like that before. So...I fixed it.  Thanks for letting me know.  I got the post written and had some trouble with the pictures and spacing...this is a problem I have always had with blogspot.  Don't know why it has to be so difficult...all I want to do is post a picture and write under it. lol

   My phone has been strangely silent today.  Been kinda nice, for a change.  I think I had maybe 3 phone calls all day. Is this how normal people live???  lol

   It's really beautiful out there. We got maybe 4 inches, a little less. It was a sight to see....

   Okay, fatigue is winning out. I will skittle on outta here and wish you all a good night.

Good night from Heart Mountain. Yup, 3 calls a day is how normal people live.

Please get rid of that word verification thing. It is a pain in the ass and for what?

Blessed be.

Very nice sign, and I agree with every one. Funny that a 12-year-old would come up with "Never give up" -- but well worth thinking about. Your margins made this hard for me to read (or lack of them on the left) but I struggled through. Hope you got a great night's sleep!

Having a quiet day at home sounds good to me. Enjoy the rest of your time together.

I love the way children think, those are great rules! You sound wonderful, and I think 3 calls is a lot! Some days NONE is just FINE with me! Sorry-I'm a crab today!!!

Dianne said...

Sounds like the rules in my house.
You should go to as many concerts as you can, but I see your priorities today.

Mine are posted the last two recent poems..... about music.

Keep writing!

LOL...yes sir, Andrew sir. The sucker is GONE!!! I didn't even know it was on....

Ronda--you guys are getting hammered, aren't you? Take care, dear one.

DJan--I know!! I accidently hit it and then could not for the life of me get it back to normal. I screwed around with it for 20 minutes, and finally went to bed. lol

Queeneenee--I'm with you, and sometimes none is perfect. You're still one of my favorite crabs...xoxoxox

Dianne...honestly the crowds really annoy me. I barely enjoy movie theaters. I have gotten way too seduced by the solitude...
