"Oh the weather outside is frightful........"



There was a winter storm warning for today starting at 9:00 am so why did I decide at 11:00 am to go to HD & buy paint????? I wasn't planning on painting today but made up my mind I now have to paint the family room a different color! Not like I didn't have enough to do between cleaning up the grout lines & getting all the "haze" off the floor! But no - I decide to go out as it hadn't started to snow & I figured those weather men are always exaggerating or whatever. Of course once I'm in a store like HD I lose all track of time. While I was checking out the cashier said to be careful driving & I was like why?? I couldn't even find my car in the BLIZZARD & it is bright red. Did I have a snow brush in my car? NO! It is normally a 20 min ride home & it took me all of that just to get out of the shopping center! I tried several ways to get home & had to stop to "brush" the snow off - with my bare hands & pull chunks of ice off the wipers! I finally pulled into my garage an hour & 20 mins later & had to "pry" my fingers from the steering wheel.


All I can say is I'd better LOVE the paint color I chose!!!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
