2013....please let it be good.....

I've been thinking about this New Year's day post and what I'd write....

Of course I've made my mental list of ALL the things I'll do differently this year....

I won't write them down...or probably review that mental list beyond today....

I can only hope that during the next 12 months I laugh more than I cry...
Give more than I receive...
And be kind......(I have a bit of trouble with this one).....I've never thought of myself as one of those sweet women who are quick to smile with a gentle spirit.....
I'm more like a firecracker that ignites without warning and I've been known to even scare myself....

I suppose that goes along with the description of a Scorpio (but I don't hold much stock in that sort of stuff)

anyway.....I'll be posting the last days photos from the desert a bit later.....
there was Redneck Bowling out there going on ....
for those of you who may not be familiar with that???
first:
you find a guy with half a brain and a couple of missing fingers

second:
you watch him stuff powder into a canon bolted to the bed of a pickup truck and drop a bowling ball inside and shout "fire in the hole"

third:
you cover your ears and watch a few dozen people squeal (ok, that's just the women) ...
while the men mutter "that's crazy...do another one"...

I have changed the header photo on this blog that includes a "boyfriend quilt" made of all flannel fabrics given to me by a dear friend.....
for those of you who know me well....
you know that my mind works much like a pinball machine (could explain why I have headaches)

anyway...
the quilt.....soft, beautiful....special.....decorating.....this is how my brain goes....
something new.... life is moving along.....so must Steve & I.....new year....new adventure.....
denim jeans.....because I'm now flying by the seat of my pants.....new experience....hobby.....

the internet......
not a great invention for someone like me who can surf along while thoughts are rocket firing of all the adventures Steve and I haven't had together yet....

the husband.....
the sweetest man on the planet.....who hangs on for dear life hoping beyond hope that his wife hasn't totally lost her pea sized brain.....

agreed to this:

a 1960 Lil Loafer camper.....I'm excited beyond description.....we're hitting the road and taking the new Christmas fishing pole and Steve and I are going camping.....and to vintage trailer rallies....and thrifting to find "cool stuff" for our wonderful Lil Loafer....

it needs a name......and decorating on the inside.....because there's a new "boyfriend quilt"

see now how my brain works.....? the pinball completed the game....





happy new year....and may it hold new adventures for you too.....





boys n their toys...



here's part of the gang.....the years....they pass too quickly folks.....

fly by the seat of your pants....the ride will end before we want it to.....

That Lil Loafer trailer is sooooo coooool! Love how it looks like a loaf of bread, or perhaps a toaster on wheels? You guys are going to have a bast... in 2013 and beyond, and hope we can join you on a few of your trips!

Please tell me you're bringing that adorable tin can out East?

I love your way of celebrating. The group photo is absolutely priceless my little firecracker!
