It was Mighty Cold Today!

This was taken today at about 1:00 PST. This fountain sits out front of our Favorite Mexican Restaurant in Victorville, Ca. Victorville is located in the High desert of Southern California.  Elevation approx. 2700 ft.  The car thermometer said it was 37 degrees outside, BUT that is before the Wind Chill Factor!!!

OMG! Shag Carpeting is Back in Full Force!

My Husband and I had Cabin Fever today and decided to risk the cold, windy, rain threatening weather and venture out to COSTCO.

Wow, I could not believe all of the food samples they were handing out today!  I have never been there when they had this many little tiny food stations, with massive amounts of samples.  In fact,  Michael ate so much that he bowed out of our previous plans of going out to dinner.   I, on the other hand did not eat as many of these free, enticing, samples of pure bliss so I had him take me to the In-N-Out Burger drive thru and I ordered my usual; a Double-Double Cheeseburger and an order of fresh hot fries. YUMMY!

As we were strolling the isles of COSTCO something so very familiar caught my eye.  I almost let out a scream as I noticed just a few feet away from me was a bin filled with large area rugs.  Not just any area rugs, but SHAG Carpeting Area Rugs.  I was taken back to the 70's when that was the stylish and most popular style of rug to have.  Yes, you could grow a garden in that long, thick like hair, carpet.  YES!!! it is BACK!!!  Whoa, I don't even think I am ready for this again.  Do you know what kind of creatures can have a soft, cushy life in that carpet?  Just imagine it, cause it will happen and you will NEVER find them in their new City of lushness!

Here are the photos of the beautiful Shag Carpet choices that were available at Costco, and the price, just a mere $124.00!

Enjoy, I wish you a peaceful, relaxing evening!

I know I have been Bad!

My Dear Blog,
It was not my intention to neglect you and my friends but life is not slowing down any and I have been running my self ragged the last 10 days.  I know, I know, that is no excuse!  I could at least take a few moments to share my thoughts, my days activities, my dreams, my tears, but it has been sooo hectic.  Please forgive me, I will try to do better.

What has happened to all of us anyway?  There used to be time in the day to take a break, have some tea and cookies perhaps, share a thought or two with a friend, call a relative we haven't spoken with in a while.  It is just plain crazy nowadays.  I feel like I am running, from the time my feet hit the floor in the morning until it is time to rest my weary head on my bed pillow at night.  All day, The Phones are ringing, door bell is ringing, laundry needs to be done, dinner planned, shopping, and oh, don't forget those bills that need to be paid.  Cell phones, Computers, Fax Machines, UPS Deliveries, I am ready to scream.

I will try to reflect back on the last 10 days that I have so thoughtlessly avoided you and see what I remember as a fun, interesting tidbit that may have happened along the way in my crazy, high speed life.  I am sure there was a laugh or two, a touching story, a few tears, (maybe I will be willing to share), I will do my best to try and think of something.  If not, well, please give me a little, minute, tiny bit of a pat on the back for checking in tonight. 

I am exhausted, just fried, and need to mellow out a bit before it is time for the sun to shine again and the madness starts all over.

Have a wonderful night, sleep tight, and I wish you beautiful Dreams!
