Roses & A Fishing Pole


I'm feeling majorly drained lately, and not able to put my finger on it. Any one have any suggestions on amping your energy levels? I definitely need all the help I can get!

Tuesday was Valentine's Day, and we (Jon & I) spent it very  low key. Tuesday morning I woke up and stumbled to the bathroom (my morning routine) to see Jon standing in the hallway with a new fishing pole & reel! Rock on! Happy Valentine's Day baby, he said :). After getting ready for work I still half asleep, walked down the stairs and into the kitchen oblivious to these sitting on the counter! Jon had to ask me if I was blind, as these gorgeous roses and a huge box of chocolates sat on the edge of the counter. I immediately stuck my nose to smell them, they are beautiful!

I got him Godsmack concert tickets, as well as Staind & Black Stone Cherry will also be touring with them. He also got a bag of Pistachios (his favorite) and a cookie that is a honey bee that says "Bee Mine". Since, he's a bee keeper and all :). I thought it was fitting! 

When I got home Tuesday night we went to the local Mexican restaurant and chowed down on Chips & Salsa. Fajita nachos for me, and a chimichanga for him. We were both stuffed to our gourds and brought home over half of the food home. A quick stop at Blockbuster to grab a couple movies, and we came home and snuggled up on the couch. 

How was your Valentine's day? 

Sunday, February 12, 2012


Listening: To 60 Minutes, watching it with Jon. Wow, when did I learn to like this show? However, I loved the interview just done with Adele!

Eating: Nothing. Had a bowl of homemade chili earlier for dinner though.

Drinking: Fruit Punch. A staple in my house.

Wearing: Gray tank top and plaid pajama pants.

Feeling: Like I don't want this weekend to end. It was completely restful, and much needed.

Weather: Cold. 17 degrees cold.

Wanting: A vacation with Jon. Craving the western skies and mountain tops.

Needing: An adventure. Kinda goes along with "wanting" above.

Thinking: Nothing really, of importance anyway.

Enjoying: A quiet evening with Jon, awaiting the Grammy's, and snuggling with my cat under the blanket.

Sunday Morning

Sundays are supposed to be for relaxing and enjoying your one last day off, before heading back to the grind on Monday Mornings, right?

Well, I truly believe so. So today, I plan to do exactly that.

This morning started out with a couple biscuits for breakfast, with our own honey from last year's harvest.

Then I enjoyed 2 cups of coffee, with a splash of milk and sugar. 

Now, here I sit wrapped up in blankets with the sunlight streaming through our windows. The air is crisp and cold, with  yesterdays snow still on the ground. Jon is off to go get us some Orange Juice, and hopefully some movies to pass the rest of the afternoon. We haven't left the house all weekend, spending it in our pajamas, taking naps, enjoying bowls of homemade chicken noodle soup, and snacking on chips & dip. Also, endless cups of tea have been drank in hopes that this cold that has invaded my body will soon disappear. I will miss this weekend, and the quietness it has brought this house. We need to divulge in these more often, without the sickness though. I realize though the only time we slow down is when we are sick, is it God's little way of telling us we need some rest?

Saturday Morning

Good Morning! 
Jon & I just woke up! W went to bed at 10 last night, and slept til 11 this morning! We were both exhausted! Jon is in the kitchen cooking an omelet with venison sausage, and I'm about to go head for the coffee pot! Both my cats are sitting on either side of me this morning, as we watch the rain fall outside. The weather forecast said rain all day long, yuck! However, I shouldn't be complaining as we are having spring time weather rather than winter!
Jon's brother got to come home last night. His sternum is severely cracked, due to a momma cow charging a fence and getting him down to the point of almost killing him. Luckily he was able to scramble away. Jon's nephew is still improving, but his girlfriend has apparently taken another turn for the worse. She's back into ICU and still heavily sedated. Keep saying prayers, please. 
Jon and I are taking his other nephew "R" tonight to the Arena Motocross, it was our Christmas present to him. He's so excited! We are hopefully going to take him down to the pit beforehand so he can meet the drivers, get autographs, etc. We are also going to take him out to eat beforehand as well! It will be a full day for him, but I'm sure he will love every minute of it! His parents don't let him be a part of anything, so it's always a great pleasure to see such a HUGE smile on his face! 
**Jon just sat down with his omelet! Oh my gosh, it takes up the ENTIRE plate! Pepperoni, ham, venison sausage, cheese, eggs, and lots of spices!**
I think I will get up and go find some coffee! Happy Saturday, to all of you!
