Weekend Get Away

I decided to take Friday off work and Thursday night drove to Las Vegas. The thing is....Sis didn't know I was coming. What a fun surprise.
Koami has been busy painting walls. You will never guess who's wall this is.

It was nice and warm. Well, for me. We went for a walk one day and Koami and Loren put on their jackets. 30 degrees warm up felt great to me.

So after celebrating Koami's birthday I had to head back home to my cold, windy weather.

I had a bit of excitement on the drive home. I had my first ever and very last contact with a deer. I was driving along watching out for deer. I saw a group and slowed down. They all took of running down the hill except for the one that turned and ran right in front of me. I heard contact but neither the car or the deer was hurt. I believe that his back hoof must of hit the car as is ran off. It took me a while to realize I wasn't breathing. Scared me to death but I can say that the Lord was looking out for me. I feel so blessed.

Week in Review

My mind draws a blank about the events of this past week except for one thing.....Bunco.

The 2nd Thursday of every month 8 great friends get together for a night of fun and laughter. I so look forward to this night. It's not so much about playing the game itself but rather the company. After a great meal we get the dice warmed up for Bunco. The longer we play the more laughter. The more laughter the lower the stress level. Sometimes I think once a month isn't enough. This week I won the prize for Lowest Bunco's. I didn't roll any myself but we were playing Bunco Share, so I got to count 2 that my partners had rolled.

So far it's been a nice weekend. It's a 3 day weekend because of Human Right's Day on Monday.

Yes it's me talking about the cold again.
I turn down my heat when I leave for work in the mornings. So when I get home from work my house is about 63 degrees. Today when I walked in I felt like I had walked into an oven. I had to check and see if I left the heat up. No, that's just how cold it is outside! The wind is blowing. So with a temp. of about 15 add in the wind chill factor we are sitting right about ZERO!
Oh how I love my warm home!

Artic Adventure

Monday night for F.H.E. I decided to go see Disney's Tangled. I have not been to the local theater in a very long time. It was freezing!!!!! People were coming in with blankets, hats and scarfs. I never took off my coat or gloves. What's up.....let's have some heat! I had went from school to the movie. So I had not been home to turn my own heat up. So I got home from the movie freezing to a cold house. It took me all night, a couple of corn bags and a blanket, to get warmed up.

2011 - Exciting Start

As the New Year started the town siren went off. My thoughts were....someone has finally came up with a good way to ring in the new year. It didn't stop and I soon realized it was for real. When the siren stopped I could then hear the sirens from the emergency vehicles. Soon my room was filled with red and blue flashing lights. I jumped out of bed. Soon there were 3 fire engines, tanker truck (In case the Hydrant wouldn't work. . . we are talking temps at -13), police, ambulance, and others all in front of my neighbors and my home. It appears that they had a chimney fire. As far as I can tell they were able to hold it to the chimney. What a heart racer for me. I can only imagine what it must of been for them with their 3 little girls.
