Friday Night Conversation

Happy Friday everyone. Who still has Easter candy left? Boy time flies, remember talking about who got what last year. I got some Reese's shaped like bunnies. Pretty good.

What's going on in your world?

On your mind?

Of course supper ideas. I am fresh out.

And in the totally random department, Mountain Monsters is the most ridiculous show on tv. What is yours and why?

Add in anything you wish.

Happy Friday!!! I still have one bag of mini-eggs left and some hershey's kisses.

Not much going on here....fence building this weekend so it will be busy just with that. Doubt I'll have much time to go running or do horse things. Just as well...I re-sprained my bad ankle again yesterday when I was playing with the dogs. Will try to run at lunch today and see how it feels, but mileage runs are probably not going to happen for another week :(

I think tonight I will be kind of lazy - maybe just make some flatbred pizzas. Last night was chicken noodle soup. I don't enjoy cooking; especially when it's nice outside and I have projects to do. I need to get outside after work and do more demo on the old fence and get my tools all organized for tomorrow morning.

I wish I had cable so I could watch tv. Sadly, we do not. So I just buy a lot of DVD's from amazon or watch netflix. Just got my latest amazon order in the mail - some random movies I ordered: Beetlejuice, Horse Whisperer, A Time to Kill, Legends of the Fall & Dances with Wolves. One I need to order and totally forgot was A League of Their Own. Great movie.

When we used to have cable, my bad vice was watching the Bachelor or Bachelorette series. I feel shame...LOL.

Happy Friday, I didn't buy any Easter candy before Easter as we have no small children but I do buy it after when it is on sale, got some nice stuff this year. Some boxes of Chocolates for half price, I take them when I go visiting as a hostess gift (nothing like being thrifty is there, great as long as they don't say Happy Easter on them) and I also got some nice chocolate candies, I am going to a horse auction tonight, so supper will be some french fries at the chip wagon, then easter chocolates to finish off with, a nice healthy meal ehh?
I don't really need any more tack and definitely not another horse but it is a social time visiting with friends and maybe seeing something that I would like. I usually get a couple of nice saddle pads that way.
One sale a few years ago there was a nice saddle pad and it only went for $3 I bought it and we used it to sit on as the benches can get hard and uncomfortable, it was worth it for that only but I am still using it so a very good buy.
We had an inch and a half of rain yesterday so things will be muddy over at the barn so may not ride today. Sis was hoping for rain as she wants to roll her lawn, guess she got it, and here's hoping she isn't asking for any more.

Happy Friday.
Although, not so happy! I have tonsillitus, AGAIN. Need to get my tonsils out soon.
But I have an appt with an ENT dr next month so that's good.

I am just working, rainy day here. I do have some Easter candy left. Definitely going to enjoy it once I'm better.
Tomorrow's my riding lesson of course, it was supposed to rain but it's not until Sunday so that's a plus. Won't be canceled.

Other than that, not too much going on.
Probably having soup tonight for dinner. Wooo!

Happy Friday!!

Not much going on here, just tons of work. I'm so swamped at work that I feel like I'm in over my head. May have to work a weekend or two pretty soon and I hate that.

I've been wanting to go shopping. There are some new stores that have opened close to us that I want to go to and the outlet mall too. I love wearing interesting socks, but I haven't shopped much in a while so all of my cute socks are about worn out. The place to get the good ones is at the outlet mall. But, DH has been out of town for three days so I kind of just want to spend the weekend with him around the house. Shopping may wait until next weekend. We just bought a tractor - very old and used but runs. We need to do some work on it including mounting new tires. I may just stick around the house and help out with that.

I don't know what's for dinner yet. Possibly soup and grilled cheese. Something easy!

I haven't ever watched it but on one of the cable channels is a show called Naked and Afraid. It looks like one of the stupidest shows ever! I get the whole "survival" thing, but why do they have to be naked? Everything is blurred anyway. If you want to have a show where everyone is naked put it on HBO and don't blur everything.

And Get Off My Lawn while you're at it! LOL! (I do sound like an old lady now.)

Random thought: I keep seeing these infomercials for Time Life Rock and Romance CD collections. Occasionally I will stop and watch for a little while so that I can sing along with all the great music! Those things are expensive though!! I'm not sure if I can bring myself to pay that much for CD's. Remember when you could join the music clubs, I think it was Columbia music record club, or something like that. Your first 10 albums/cassettes/CD's were free and then you'd pay like $9.99 a month for more? I guess now you can just download music. No need to check the mailbox everyday to see if your music got there.

Oops, I almost forgot (thank you for the edit button) I still have a few jelly beans left from Easter. It's a weakness! And there are just too many jelly beans that you can't get except at Easter time.

I see those commercials for the cd things every now and then. They play last night on a channel I switch to that isn't to bright and I cut sound off just to have something on. Usually after racing is over. They show coin collections, and I know those are a rip off.

Talk about a useless information post.

Happy Friday all.
I thought this weekend was never coming after working last weekend and during the week. The next couple of days will be as lazy as possible. Like others, with the good weather I prefer to potter about outside. Iíve spent the late afternoon sitting in the garden cleaning the saddle that belonged to my second horse; itís no-longer used and Iím thinking of selling.
Iíve absolutely nothing planned for the next couple of days except perhaps a ride with a friend and some gardening; thereís been very little rain here so the ground is hard and will need watering before anything can be done.
No one in the family eats chocolate Easter eggs and neither can I so I donít buy them. Although, I did watch my work colleagues slowly eat their way through a very large basket of mini-eggs that was continually topped-up by a member of staff, so Iíll be surprised if they didnít feel ill after them. No one owned-up to having a chocolate hangover by the end of the week!
This area loses tv reception as the leaves come on the trees, thereís no cable and even those with satellite seem to have trouble. The picture will break-up until autumn so itís very difficult to watch; I get out of the habit of turning on the tv even for a DVD. Over the past few weeks Iíve been watching old westerns (Texas from 1941 was hilarious yesterday) and comedies (Last of the Summer Wine, Still Game, Blackadder and Keeping up Appearances).
Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Happy Friday ya'll!

I worked a little earlier today (I am a massage therapist) and then went to the barn to check on my new horse Silvia. She arrived yesterday and is settling in way quicker than I would have imagined, which is sooo nice to see!

I absolutely love the white chocolate eggs that come around Easter! I could literally sit and eat a whole bag of them. I also love the Starburst Jellybeans! They have a bag of just the red kind which is perfect.

Tomorrow my husband and I are racing all day (and probably night) and then Sunday should be a much needed rest day. My other hobby is cars, and my husband and I each have a race car. This is racing season, so we have been going non-stop since mid-March...whew time is just flying by!

Dinner was Cinnamon Toast Crunch LOL
