Sunday Fun

Hi All!

Happy MLK,Jr. Day. I hope everyone remembers what he tried to do with non-violence. If you haven't had a chance, drop by Sarah's blog to listen to his "I Have a Dream" speech.

Hubby's home. Why does that throw me off? I guess I have my plans made for my week and then suddenly, he is here with other plans. If he tells me his plans at all! Of well, I do enjoy spending time with him and tomorrow he heads out of town for work for the rest of the week so I will miss him horribly.

The temps here have been swinging as wildly as a dancer's tassels. In the day time the temps climb up to the high 60's but at night - brrr - it gets chilly. Need proof? Just check out this visitor to our bird feeder this morning.

I don't think he got that fat from our birdseed!

Last night my friend, D, and her daughter, C, joined Hubby and I for dinner at the Texas Roadhouse. This was a thank-you dinner from Hubby and me for their dedicated care of our kitties while we were gone during the holidays. We had a lot of fun at dinner. The food was good, there were lots of free yeast rolls and the company was great.

After dinner we invited D and C back to our house for cheesecake (we have a freezer full thanks to my MIL who sent us a package from Omaha Steaks for Christmas) and Wii.

First, we bowled. Hubby, C, and I bowled. D refused claiming some sort of video game deficiency (this was verified by C so . . . we let her off the hook). After bowling C and I raced cows. Yes, really.

On the Wii Play game there is a game called Chase! It involved riding a cow through a twisting course while mowing down scarecrows posted in the middle of the course for points. It is too funny for words! Normally, I have to race my poor cow alone since Hubby refuses to be drawn into the silliness of this game. However, C joined right in and this led to a giggle fest which Hubby retreated from.

Chase! was followed by fishing, target shooting, and billiards. D finally got into the action on billiards and wasn't too happy when I won (according to C I won totally by luck and I am pretty sure she is right!).

It was a fun evening. We need to do it more often.


Voice Update: Okay - I was cranky much of the day yesterday from a lack of sleep. I didn't do my massage or my exercises. My voice was pretty good but, I know that if I don't get right back on the ball, I will regret it!

That is one happy mourning dove! Good times. If I read all about your wii fit stuff, will I lose weight?

That does sound like fun! I'm always tempted by wii but so far have resisted. You make it sound like I should run out and get one!

By the way, I like the "dancer's tassels" analogy!
