I just got back from a 4 hour snowshoeing hike up a mountain a ways north of where I live, with a fellow I have been dating. Last week we went target practicing, and I beat him.

It was rather warm out today, so the building is making noises. The walls are warming up and creaking. And the boards under the rug are talking to me. No, I am not going mad. It is this crazy building. It is old and likes to talk. I just hope it shuts up by the time I go to bed. I need to take up drinking!

I spent the morning with a friend making cards. She sells the stamps and supplies and had a party at our other neighbour's on Tuesday night but I was not feeling up to going so she came to me! We had a great time chatting and creating. It is something I can do without a lot of energy and my hands seem to handle the stamping and paper punching okay. My only difficulty may be peeling the back off the double sided tape, but if it doesn't look perfect no one sees it anyway! (Wow, don't let my perfectionism know I said that ).



Now I am trying to tidy up a bit and decide what to do for dinner.

I forgot that I know another man who is comfortable in his own skin when it comes to doing needlepoint (plastic canvas)....my own father-in-law. And he probably wouldn't be any taller or bigger than one of Rosie Greer's legs Seriously, he is about five feet and skinny as a rail and his hands are all crippled up from a long career as a heavy duty mechanic. But at Christmas all the kids get really great handmade presents including "replicas" of their vehicles, snowflakes, triangular Santa heads, and so much more. He spends most of the year making them and no one has a clue what they are until they get them. He has made picnic napkin holders, napkin rings, and many other larger things to be sold at the hospital thrift stores. I am really proud of him. (The size reference makes no difference I was just saying it because of Rosie ).

Now that could be interesting. He definitely beat me at snowshoeing. He says he has been hiking these mountains his whole life. I just turned out to be in not as good as shape as I thought. Hmmmm, maybe we should delay any event for a while

No, I don't. Havana was my first Golden. She was a stray when we found her. About 4 years old at the time, give or take. She lived with us for another 6 years and found her way deep into my heart. Heck, I named her after a Jimmy Buffett song because whenever I was away from her I was Havana Daydreamin'.
