Bad news first, or good news?

Hey, friends.
It’s been a heck of a long week over here.
My water pump and thermostat went out in my Stratus, so we’re down to one car until we can come up with a grand to have it repaired 😦 If you see me cruising around in Brian’s rusty blue Subaru with a dent in the front from a small deer collision, please give me a wave and send some positive vibes our way 🙂 Also, if you’re in Point and in need of a car shop, go to Auto Select. I love the one on Hwy 10- they are so nice and provide really good service.
Did you know that a car can overheat, even when it’s -4 degrees outside?

I also had a dentist appointment that didn’t go quite as planned- there was a problem with how my body was processing the numbing shots, so it was a very painful filling. I was supposed to have two cavities filled, but I postponed the second one until next month. Ouch!

Our back door is frozen shut, so we have to carry Abbie out the front door to take her out.

And last but not least in my list of depressing news, yesterday was the one year anniversary of losing Rachael. I’ve been truly amazed at how much God can heal a broken heart in a year’s time…

I certainly miss her smile and positive attitude. We were kindred spirits, like that.
In positive news, I used my cast iron skillet (thanks, Jean!) for the first time to make cornbread!

I’ve also been able to get our humidity in the house up to a comfortable level, leading to some crazy curls…

I had the Safelite guy come out and take care of the chip in my windshield. Yay!

Our guest speaker for our Trout Unlimited meeting this month was James Card. He spoke last night about his guiding experience in South Korea and he showed us amazing pictures of the different types of fish! My favorite was this fish called a cherry trout, with cute little stripes!

I got my hands on the sheet music for Rhythm Song, and I’m relearning it. It’s like reuniting with an old friend. I tore my hands open already on those mallets. Good memories!

I zipped over to Adventure 212 this morning for a photo shoot with their new chef in the bistro. Delicious food and good company- I had a great time!

Yeah, I ate that cupcake. Coconut. Delicious.
Brian and I are just getting ready to head over to O’so for their special bottled release of Bourbon Barrel Night Train. I’m in heaven. Catch you later!
