Got Eggs?


    GOT EGGS?


      I overheard a few conversations about having too many eggs after EASTER. By the way I hope you celebrated our Saviors resurrection. 
     So ennaway, I heard excuses like "But they were on sale!" I believe egg sandwiches are being fed ah plenty this week. lol. 
     My Grandbaby turned 7 the day before Easter and I was invited to her party. I had fun. I enjoyed watching her open presents and after she gave everyone a hug and thanked them. I then had early breakfast with her and Mom at their church on Easter. Yes I was up early ( on auto pilot) and made it on time!
 Later I went to my church and it was enlightening. 

     Now last week was spent at the camper by the lake. I fished and my first fish was a HUGE
crappie! Bout 13 inches long!! Hot diggity! Relaxing there as always and any stress melts away.
     The weather has been up in temp then way down. Rain then foggy. I am going fishing in the morning. I have worms to use and a freezer to fill! Couple weeks ago the salmon started upstream to lay their eggs. By now they must have turned black in color which is not good eating.
     I bought me a fishing pontoon! Not a party kind, which has seats all around. It has one bench in back by motor and up front a swivel fisher-woman seat. It was just what I was looking for. The trailer a scissor  type to go under and lift up boat. The motor a 4 stroke 25 horse Mercury. So no mixing gas an oil!! I bought it from a private party used. No rust everything works. It's a 19 footer. Ah  and a trolling motor too. I need four bumpers to protect from dock dings. I told Jon I'd stuff foam in BIG bras from 2nd hand store and hook them together around the boat. You know, booby bumpers! LOL!
He said he'd never go on the boat if I do that. I said awe heck I could see you testing the bumpers by squeez'in the boobie bumpers to be sure they are good to go hahaa.
  So Jon buys the neighbors atv he brought back from his cabin up north. Another toy!!

Oh my it's late and I am going fishing in the morning.
So nite all!!
Count your blessings every morning.

Toods.......





My grandbaby and her Mom. Love them so much!

Sooner Or Later...

    




     Sooner or later I would be bloggin again.
     Sooner or later I would be Up An Att'em.
     Sooner or later I'd be inspired......
    
     Well where was my laptop with low life battery? Hey bought a new battery an still hadn't blogged. My life has been full of chores and no scheduled fun inserted. Insomnia makes me look like...well look at photo above. Nuff said.

      I am moving up north. Surprised? As if moving from Missourah to WI wasn't north enough. Well like they say, if you like your tongue stuck to your fork...go up north!
     My manfriend is retiring and his dream is mine too. You know locals, livin the good life up north in a cabin fishing from your front yard. BBQ parties on your pontoon with bubbly refreshments!
     Well it's in the mak'ins. I thought I was too old to handle it but we're not getting any younger the more we procrastinate. There's ah place we looked at and after tour we went to local pub yah hey. We walked in and someone at the bar said Hi (insert manfriends name). Huh? Seems so many retired folks up dare are from Sheboygan area. Go figure eh? Dang it was fun chatt'in there and having a few brewskis..
     Enna way.....the inspiration I found was in a photo.....

Inspiration   
       This got me firing up the saw, polishing the cutting table and dusting off blades.
     I have been woodburning dog portraits. I scrollsawed ornaments. Then insomnia caught up and well hence the photo up there. This castle from bits of wood really set my mind in creative mode.
The man in photo also made a fairy tree which took my mind away into a demention called Create!
Sooner or later, right?
     I decided to dust off my camera and actually start using it. I will post amazing photos here. Good grief I just set the bar pretty high didn't  I? okay, so whatever.
   I'll be back after another trip up there in yooper land. Be good. Bumps! er Toast!

Fall is here!


     Where did the summer go? For me it went too fast.
I really enjoyed my summer. Even all the hard work. 
We winterized my camper yet we have to do Jon's this week.
Now when we go during winter we bring our own water and gas for generator to run things.
Our neighbor had a fallen branch that went right through their roof!
We helped caulk up the hole. I hope that doesn't happen to our campers.

Pretty soon I will be on medicare. I bought a policy to cover what they don't.
I also bought myself a small car. A Ford Taurus. Not a new one. I really like it.
Jon is keeping my van and replacing worn out parts. I never knew there was buttons on the steering wheel for radio! Jon got the sound working great. I never could...hah.
I sure did alot of painting this summer. Oh and stacking firewood! I think my arms are longer from that LOL!

I fished but not as much as I wanted to. Priorities Jon barks. Well he is right. First things first.
By the way, I lost 26 pounds this summer!! I am in a much smaller size in clothes.
I can't remember when I looked this thin. Of course memory at my age...LOL!

I have a smart phone. I still can't work it right. I miss my old simple phone.
Ennaway ....I got an old fashioned hand written letter from my friend in Missouri.
So good to hear from her. Did I ever mention the downtown burned down where I used to live?
I have no idea if they are rebuilding it. Specially the food store and senior center.
Jon bought this brat cooker Johnsonville now has out. It works great!
No more standing outside in the winter getting coals hot.

The neighborhood has Packer parties and it is fun! I have the basement cleaned so we can host one this Fall. I wore a fuzzy Eore (donkey) suit for Halloween party. It even has a tail LOL!
Well I best go and continue doing chores then go shopping a bit.
I hope to spend a bit more time on computer. Take care!
