Another day in the frozen tundra, or so it seems…we’ve been hit by an unexpected on and off again all day snow. Just enough to be really pretty to watch fall and just enough to have made the roads get really crappy really fast. Old Boy had to meet with a farmer about an hour south of here, took him about three hours to get home…said most of the drive was on a sheet of ice. Glad we had everything we needed!
Bubba spent last night with his favorite Cousin Emi and family. One would never guess they are second cousins, they are more like brother and sister. He likes to go over there because he gets special treatment since my cousin and her husband only have girls and they spoil him AND they do fun things like have family movie night with junk food, four wheelers and snow mobiles, they sled and mom and dad come out and play with them.
Old Boy doesn’t get it as to why a boy and a girl cousin would want to hang out and spend the night at one another’s homes, although he grew up with a cousin in the same matter. I just enjoyed getting a break of Bubba being so bored of being home that he follows me around the house night and day telling me about vehicles, motors, tires…he is a huge motor head and sometimes he gets my brain to floating because I just cannot understand all he is explaining. I listen and try, but very little do I actually understand.
Pretty excited…a couple years ago Bubba and I met a great aunt of Old Boy’s while laying flowers at the cemetery. I’d recently discovered a set of his great-grandparents and they are buried at the same cemetery as several of my relatives, a lady came up to us and asked who we were, she knew of no others who ever put flowers on those graves. We introduced ourselves and visited for quite some time, she offered to have us over anytime being she had all the old family photos and such. Didn’t get the call made until today and I’m really excited and hoping she has enough information to help break through a wall I’ve been head-butting for a long time with no luck.
My wheels are turning, feeling some major motivation that I haven’t had in ages…isn’t that the way it goes, dead of winter and cold and snowy as hell and getting out and about is as miserable as all get out.
Winter is really starting to get to me. Has been so freakin’ cold that I just want to RUNAWAY…. Was planning on heading out to the middle of Nebraska this weekend to see my girl, we were going to meet about half-way. Was going to leave the boys home to babysit the minions…yeah, supposed to get nailed by snow and ice and the start time keeps getting moved up. So ready for our trip to the timed events at The Lazy E in Oklahoma in March!
Peace and Love!
I make bitter better.
