Happy Little Trees, Happy Little Smithers

There is something to be said for Bob Ross and his quiet way of speaking.  He’s so calm.

I love watching him perform his magic.

We all do get a kick out of the notion anyone can make a happy little tree.  Seriously Bob…I’m pretty sure I can’t make a tree and has nothing to do with the fact I only have three fingers and a thumb. HA HA HA.


Summer of Barry – The One Where It Rained A Lot

We’ve had very heavy rains the last 3 days.  I went down to the Creek to see what it looked like.

It’s muddy and the water is very high on the banks.

It was beautiful in its own way.  I’m just glad we don’t live near a body of water.

Tut, Tut, It’ Looks Like Rain!

Um…Me thinks it’s going to rain….

…and then it did…a lot…like 2″.


More Autumnal Fun

I’ve been having a blast recently with all of the outside fun.

It was a little rainy and overcast for most of the day but I just couldn’t let it get in the way of my good day.

Peak Leaf/Color season has passed but there are still some good colors on the trees.  We took to the Arboretum today.

It wasn’t too bad.  I’m going to miss all of the color once Winter descends upon us but at least I have my memories to keep me feeling good!  Can’t wait to see what happens tomorrow!


The Girls Go To The Beach

It was a rainy day but we went to see the ocean while we were in town.

It was a good weekend rain or no rain.  Can’t wait to come back very soon because the beach is amazing!


Curling and Rain

Curling is awesome.  The Gold Medal round didn’t disappoint.  The Canadians were on top form.

That’s Kaitlyn getting ready to make the magic happen!

Sweden put up a good fight but it came down to one mistake that let the Canadians in the door.

We were having nothing but snow every week and then today came with its 58 degree temperatures and the moisture wasn’t snow this time…it was rain.  Lots and lots of rain.

The big talk is if it will make all the snow go away…just in time for the snow that is supposed to arrive next week once our mini heat wave ends 😦  Spring is taunting us!  Not Nice!


Teddy Goes Amish

The Roomie took us to a new place this weekend.  It’s called Dutch Wonderland.  I guess Amish World was taken already, Ba dum dum!

I was pretty stoked because everyone knows how much I like amusements!

This house reminds me of a house in Germany where this old hag lady lived.  Well she lived there until those nasty kids moved in next door and tried to eat her house!

Ha Ha I’m standing not sitting!  Always the Rebel am I, ARGGGGH!

Check me out on the horse-drawn carriage!  I could be almost Amish.  They speak Dutch and I speak German we are practically twins!

Dutch Wonderland isn’t just a place for Kids it’s also a great place for the unDead crowd too!  It was a really fun time!
