Well my stacks of books are more onamental than anything these days. I had a goal of the end of Feb. for figuring out what I was going to do with them or if I was actually going to read them. I think they look really good were they are and Iam not going to get stressed about it. (I haven't even finished a book since Feb)

to quote an old friend that sent me an email when she saw my list
"My philosophy on reading is a little different, after going through my own "self help reading phase" my last one was the Surrendered Wife after it was featured on Oprah. I decided this was B/S and trashed almost all of them, and focus just on establishing life balance and keeping things simple. My goal was to take time for myself and read for enjoyment, hang with my good friends, and continue to build my relationship with Darin (my husband). But my reading time in itself is time for reflection, growth and escape."

I think that is great advice and I hope to start "escaping" a little more.

Have a great day.

Weekend Fun

Just got home from a fabulous cooking class in Calgary at the cookbook co. Stacey and I went tonite as a "sorry you Christmas party with us was not up to your expectation" free bee...! Am I ever glad that I went. It well surplassed my expectations tonite. We cooked a great selection of food that you could easily serve to guests and not be to stressed out about it. Pork loin was the main dish and was cooked to perfection. I was responsible for the veggie braisen. Basically veggies cooked in beer, and I made the rasberry dressing to top the eggplant and fried green tomatoes.good!!

I work tomorrow and will miss Hayzes hockey game. He is playing the 3 game in the second round against cochrane. The winner plans high river on Sunday.

Destiny has rodeo on Sunday .. and I believe this will be my last week of hockey in rockyford. I have however found a new hockey team.. the pensioners.. 65-76 years old. They play twice a week. I can join them every secound Thursday. Based on my work schedule this will be lovely.. I am going to kick there buts someday.. Sure wasn't last thursday... Good work out.

have a great weekend, I will talk to you soon.

some catching up to do.

Good Morning!
With my internet on the fritz.. I have some catching up to do.
Well, we bought a car for $3,000 (right on budget). I man is coming to pick it up today because it is falling apart as we speak. I guess that will teach us not to by $3,000 cars. Cute well kept car. 1998 Malibu. Just not the headache we need right now. The guy was very good about it and he is going to give us our money back.

I joined weight watchers a couple of Tuesdays ago with a couple of friends. going well. lost the first week. The key is to stay motivate. My plan is to lose about 2 pounds a week. Setting achievable goals I think will help.

Hockey Play offs started for Hayze. They finished in round one best out of 3 against Nanton. They move on to play Cochrane this weekend best out of 3. Here Saturday Morning and off to Cochrane Sunday morning for a 8 am game. He has been playing goal throughout the whole thing. He is loving it. practising regularly and now wanting goaly school. (lord help us)

Future rodeo cowgirls & cowboys Asc. continues to be our outing every second Sunday for Destiny. Hayze did ride a couple of weeks ago. Destiny is loving it very much and I think has won 10-11 ribbons so far this year. She took her little horse Raz last weekend. We look her out of the pasture and in to the arena. I don't think she liked it very much and was missing her baby (9 mths old) and didn' listen to Destiny very well. For the third event a old college friend of mine lent Destiny a bomb proof horse and she did awesome. Nice big horse that Destiny got going really well. took home the 5th place ribbon for her ride in the barrels.

Bangles is taking part in a 24 hour hockey tournament in Rockyford, cutting hair for donations this weekend. One of our stylist is planning on shaving her head for "Relay for Life" Saturday night if she can raise $5000. We have be raising funds at the shop for 2 1/2 days . she already has $1700. I'm sure Karli will be bald.

As you can tell we have an exciting weekend planned. I have Saturday off and looking forward to all the recreational activity.. Plus really want to see Karli Bald.
Have a good day.

Good Info for Woman

I was sent this email from a cousin of mine with some great information for woman.
I have included the "blog" address so that you can read the information on her friends blog about woman's hygiene product. It's great information and if you are a woman I suggest you have a look at the following blog.

Actually if you are anyone, the blog is all about recycling and living greener and has some good "food for thought" have a look.
