The Biggest Loser.....

there are a few on that blue team that I'm not liking too much.....

I hope Brady doesn't lose too much this week...just because he is sneaky.

No game tonight......

No game in Phila tonight
Maybe Wed night
I might actually get some sleep tonight

Sports are killing me......

I'm getting no sleep due to sports!
Last night, the World was called

The weekend and more pictures......

Johnny boy and I went to the Richmond Renegades games on Friday night....and it was fun. Two fights, pretty funny. The crowd just goes wild when they start fighting.

Worked on the kitchen all day Saturday.
The wallpaper came off so easy but the glue decided to hang around a bit more.
So I had to work on getting that off.
That product Diff, works pretty good.

Sunday all the kids over.
Big dinner and football....oh gosh I just love it!
Made that apple cake is just so good!

and now it's a bit cold here in Richmond, VA.
getting down in the 30's tonight.

Here's more pics from the apple pickin day.

and now all is good.....

The Cowboys won.....13 to 9.
they held Tampa Bay to just 9 points...that has to say our defense was actually playing. We didn't get the game.....we had to watch those dumb Wash Redskins win.
but I'm impressed.......the held Tampa Bay to just 9!!!!

34 to 14.....!!!
Needless to say I think our season is pretty much over. We have steadily looked worse and worse with each week.
It will take a miracle to make it to the playoffs this year
oh well, there's always next year.



Let's go Cowboys.....

Doing some fall stuff.....and picture overload!!

We went to Charlottesville's only about a hour from our home and is just beautiful. Besides being the home to the University of Virginia, it's also home to Monticello, where Thomas Jefferson lived and Ash Lawn, where James Monroe lived! A lot of history and some big, beautiful mountains.

We went up to Carters Mountain to the apple orchard. Picked Granny Smith, Red Delious and Fuji apples. And it was hard...because you're standing all slanted like on the side of the mountain. was cold! I don't know what the temp was, maybe around 47 or so but the wind was blowing and there were a lot of clouds so it felt really cold. But it was fun.....and Maddox enjoyed just riding around in the wagon with the apples. He thought they were balls so he kept throwing them out..haha.

After getting around 27 lbs of apples, we went to the downtown mall. It's an area in old Charlottesville where the streets have been laid in bricks and is now closed to traffice. A lot of really cool stores, some restaurants and coffee shops......just a pretty and neat area. We ate at some pizza joint and ran into one of Johnny's cousins. That was neat.......

Then we headed over to the more "modern" area of Ch'ville......and went to Crutchfields. They carry electronics and mostly just do catalog / internet sales but they have a couple of stores. And since Johnny boy and Bucky just love looking at electronics, we stopped by. And it was ok....just felt like walking through Best Buy to me!

Headed home around 3:30.....very, very tired!
rested up and then went over to Linens and Things since they are going out of business. Had to see what kind of deals they had......but nothing really. Just 10 and 20% off right now. I did buy a pedestal cake stand.

So now I have 27 lbs of apples!! what was I thinking???
Tomorrow I am making an apple cake, apple crisp and some homemade cinnamon applesauce.

some pictures from our day and a shot of my front porch with the beautiful mums that Johnny boy bought me on Friday.

Friday, October 10, 2008



Here are the rules....
1. Link to the person who tagged you: I can never get mr linky to work....check out the sidebar....I was tagged by Connie!
2. Post these rules.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks.
4. Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them

ummmm....let's see, unspectacular....

1. I love Fridays especially because I can come home from work and make coffee. Other days I cannot do that because it will keep me up!
2. I sing my own little spanish version of a song to my little dog every day...and I don't even know spanish!
3. I cannot drink sodas or beer out of a can. My pepsi has to be poured into a cup with no ice and my beer has to be bottled beer.
4. I used to always be after turning 50, I'm always hot.
5. I always think after I get my yearly physical, I'm good for another year!
6. I get as excited about snow the same as I did when I was a kid.

and I tag everyone who reads my there anyone out there??


New phone....

This morning I put my cell phone in the back pocket of my jeans.....and left for work. But when I got out to my car and went for my phone, it was gone. So back to the house, unlock the door and I can't get the house key out of the lock! I tried and tried but couldn't get the key out! whatever.......I left it there.

went in looking for my phone but couldn't find it anywhere. And I had to go so again, I try to get the key out of the lock but no, wouldn't budge. So I went to work...yep, just left the key in the door! Made it really easy for anyone who wanted to get in the house.....

So a couple of hours after I get home from work, I go to use the bathroom downstairs and I notice something black in the bottom of the toliet....what the heck is it. Johnny goes to get the gripper to try to get a hold of it and guess was my phone!! I guess when I tinkled before I left for work it fell out of my back pocket. So ewwwww.....I had to get a new phone! And here it is.....HTC Touch Phone. Hope it's a good one!!

it's been over a week......and here's a bunch of pictures!

It's been over a week since I posted......well, all I can say is life got busy! Here's a bunch of pics from the pumpkin patch, my kitchen hutch decorated for Halloween and the welcome wreath on my front door.

*I finished those darn steroids on Sunday and man I hate taking those things. It did make the pain in my knuckle go away but it's still there and sometimes, hurts just a tad. I go back to the orthopaedic doc in November. And those steroids, they puffed up my face or maybe it was the candy corn!

*Nicole, Maddox, Jacquelyn, Bucky and I went to the pumpkin patch on Saturday. It was fun even though it got a little warm. It's the kind of deal where you load someone up with pumpkins, they take 3 steps and then you only pay $20 for all of the pumpkins. We loaded Bucky up......he held 15 pumpkins! THANKS BUCKY!!

*And then on Monday.....I broke out in poison ivy! arghhhh.......and the only time I was outside around anything green or growing was at the pumpkin patch. And it's all the way around my I think Maddox must have touched some and when he wrapped his arms around my neck, boom.....I've got it. And I guess he's not allergic to it because he doesn't have it. And let me just tell sucks!

*Cowboys won.......they looked really, really bad but they won. And as "they" say...a win is a win!

*Desperate Housewives to just so freakin funny!

*Can someone PLEASE tell me when Lost is coming back on!!

*I dreamed the other night that Kayla and Jake went back together and got right away! Isn't that weird! I guess that was just wishful thinking!

*It's starting to get chilly around these parts of the country!
