Hello fishy! We are coming to waters near you!

We are getting a row boat!

In the past we have done our fishing from the shore.. well you cant always cast to the places you want beyond the weeds. Well Brian's brother Mark, and his gf Barb came over last night. And asked if we would be interested in a row boat. I was thinking yes before we even heard the details. Barb had connections on getting the boat, but they only wanted the motor off it. Well they asked us if we would be interested in the boat. And we have been looking for a small row boat for a while now. Well we went over last night to look at it. It will do the job!

Its coming with a trailer.. which we can haul behind my Explorer. Today we went to Walmart, I had to exchange the tv thingy I had bought last week. We picked up a trolling motor, trolling battery, and some other fishing related items. The only thing we couldnt get was the oars, cause they were being shipped, and should be there shortly.

Cant wait to get out on the water, and catch some northerns!


I thought it was SpRiNg?!?!

Umm its what.. April 22, known as Earth Day!.. and what did it do today.. it was snowing here! It did manage to get up to 57 degrees, but its almost 8pm, and its already 29 degrees! And the coming forecast doesn't look to promising.. going to be in the mid 40's thru Wednesday, atleast.

Well I spent Earth Day, by going grocery shopping, and bumming with Lia(my future SIL, whom I'm the matron of honor for in her wedding on June 10th). Lia and I left about 9am, and I didn't get home till about 3:30, since I had to unpack all Lia's groceries, that could feed an army for a year! That girl can shop! We went to Rhinelander, decided since we both had not eaten that we would go for lunch. We ate at Country Kitchen, haven't eaten at one of those in a while. Lately the drive up at McDonalds or Burger King is my dinner out. LOL It was fun just to talk.. (like we didn't do it the whole way there and back, and in between.. LOL) We went over to the bridal shop, where her dress is being hemmed. Oh wow, saw some of the prom dresses there. Some of the colors are well, different. One dress was I would call it tangerine, and one was a lite lime green color. I had asked Lia if it was ok to go over to a craft store, cause I had heard about it from a coworker. Well I bought some more DMC that I didn't have, and a cute cross stitch pattern from Precious Moments (the boy is a firefighter, humm I wonder who I will be stitching that for.. times 3 actually). Then we did the grocery shopping. That was the fun part. I with my single cart do my shopping.. and here comes Lia with her double shopping cart LOADED. It took about 20 minutes just to pack my truck with her groceries. But we always have fun grocery shopping. :)

Then we headed over to WalMart.. well... I have to say. I spent to much!.. LOL I did manage to get the one thing I went there for. The rest of the netting for the fence for our garden. I have a habit to find the clearance in all the stores, and well.. I need this, I need this. Into the cart it goes. I bought a new mini stereo system for our bedroom, cause the one wasn't working right. Bought some food and soda, and Brian's cup holder for his bike, and other odds and ends. But I did buy an item, that I thought was suppose to be something different. GRRRR! I paid alot of money for it, but I'm debating whether to take it back, or keep it. I was thinking I was buying one of those DVD players that you can use in your vehicle. I thought I would buy it for road trips, and for camping. Well come to find out it was a 7" LCD monitor, that you can use to plug a DVD, VCR or game system into. GRRR! So I'm still deciding what to do with it. Oh, I also bought the Joel Osteen audio book on CD, called "Your Best Life Now".

Came home put away the groceries, and setup the stereo. Did some stitching before making some dinner. And here I am now.. LOL Well I think the needle is calling me. :)


Ok, I think Im set

Well I lied about going to stitch.. instead I got this blog looking the way I would like it to look.

First of all, I think Lia is going to flip when she sees the template.. HE HE HE.. She loves her lighthouse!

Well, if anything is missing I will be updating it tomorrow. :)

~God's Blessings~

ARGH!!! Ok here I am!

Ok, I have been trying to get my other blog (upnorthlonglake) working again, well after several attempts to contact Blogger regarding the situation, I decided to just create a new username and go from there. So those that have bookmarked my blog, please update your urls. :) (Thanks)

Here is a link to my pervious blog http://upnorthlonglake.blogspot.com/

So, maybe the headache and the heartache that went with waiting for the other blog to come back is over.

Well, lots has happen in the 2 weeks that I havent been blogging. My sister called Friday night (4-15), and said, "Don't be mad, but I'm pregnant".. my reaction was.. I just laughed. Only a month and a half ago.. she had cervical cancer. The cancer was removed, and had not spread any further. Well this is going to be a miracle baby. Thats all I can say! Now also with my SIL (married to my brother) is pregnant (due around mid Oct). Christmas is going to be big this year! Looking forward to the weddings coming up in the near future. Two of Brian's brothers are getting married. One on May 28th, and June 10th. I cant wait! Party Time! The weather has been beautiful lately.. but its cooling down now :(. But thats Wisconsin weather for you! (or atleast us).. LOL I was out in the flowerbeds today.. working up the soil, pulling weeds, and having a ball! Cant wait to get the flowers planted.. which wont be for another more or so. Other than that.. working. Work has been fun lately.. actually able to get outside with the residents and enjoy the view of Big Twin. I started a wall hanging quilt with one of the residents, anxious to see how that turns out.

I have been cross stitching alot! Take a look at my recent finishes http://community.webshots.com/album/244160387LtlCor/2 Im currently stitching on a Tatty Teddy design, which will be adorable when I finish it :).

Well, I suppose, I should get back to stitching.. put in another hour of two. Going grocery shopping tomorrow.. WooHoo! I wish sometimes the groceries would do their own shopping.. LOL
