I am getting a Friday Fragments in!! I know it, it's been a while, yes it has. We did move across the country, unpack a house, get our bearings, organize said house, and also found time to hike a new favorite place this last month or so.... I get a by on blogging, right??
Actually, here is the deal. I don't get to be online infinitely here. We pay by the usage, you know, MB of streaming use, so I just CAN'T sit here all day and play around or blog or even read blogs like I used to in MD. The other part is that we are having summer break here with school, which also means no one is sitting down for long here. I apologize for my lack of commenting and reading. I will buzz around the blog world as I can, promise ;-)
We made a hard decision moving here to 'detox' ourselves from the electronic world. I needed to limit my computer time, the kids needed unplugged from the TV, so we thought: new location, new rules. The Army movers chose to help us out and broke our TV during this PCS. To be honest, we haven't missed it at all. We have been outdoors having a great time and my jeans are a bit looser now :-)
We found snow and a frozen lake during our 4th of July hike. I feel like kicking myself for the months of sedentary life in MD, because I am feeling it now. I made it over half way up the side of this baby mountain before my knees gave a little warning. I should get credit for listening this time. But I had the joy of sitting with a 2 year old throwing a fit over being left behind with the old lady.
Word of wisdom: DON'T underdo recovery from any injury!!! My knees got banged up while I was impatiently recovering from nerve damages. While you are healing JUST STAY SITTING!!! Let other people do stuff for you and you will keep all the cartilage in and around your necessary joints!!!
Can you believe the massive heat wave going on??? My SIL said that her vehicle registered 107* yesterday. That is crazy!! Folks may be jealous of our cool temps right now, but they won't want our winter temps ;-) I told my friend, Jamers, that we just needed to find a middle ground between her SC heat and my AK cool. Would that be Montana, do you think????
I stink at fishing :-( My hubby is bringing them in, we even had a huge rainbow trout given to us today. The stupid fish will take all my bait, but won't take the whole dang hook!!! Anyway, I have never had so much fish junk and slime and blood running around my sink ;-) I can't wait for hunting season, right??? ;-)
I keep telling myself that I need to be more patient, but I just use way too much patience in the rest of my life!!! I have none left over for fishing... that's my story!!
