Valentine's Day and the Single Girl

Single ladies, let's make a pact to not be the person staying home and eating that bag of cookies or chips.  

Treat yourself to something special.  A scarf that really makes your eyes stand out or a pair of shoes that you wouldn't normally spend money on.  If you like flowers buy yourself a bouquet; better yet, buy a orchid.  

Get your other single friends together for a great night out.   Go to that nice restaurant and flaunt your singleness.  It's o.k.

Yep, make the day about you - from you!

Friday Smiles

Hello everyone!  I'm joining up with Annie at A Stitch In Time.   If you need to smile hop on over and see what others are sharing.

I received an email from a friend about British humor.  It is very different (and truthfully, a bit more my style) from humor in the United States.  It's maybe a bit more snarky.

Here's a portion of the email.  Hope it gives you a smile and maybe even break out in laughter!

The Brazos of Northern New Mexico

Last weekend some friends took me along for a ride to the Brazos and Chama.  We had a blast.  First we stopped at Bode's for burgers.  They changed their homemade patties to store bought ones and it just wasn't the same.  They still photographed much better than they tasted!
We continued on our way and I took some photos out of the moving car.  I just held up my camera and clicked, not looking through the viewfinder.  I got lucky!
We drove through Tierra Amarilla towards the Brazos.  Our mission was to find some deer and other wildlife. 
These are mule deer.  There isn't a lot of their normal food available.  This group was waiting by the side of road and had no hesitation to come up and be fed.  We had crackers.  It is always exciting to be so close to nature but yet my heart breaks because of the condition they are in.
This is Keith, one of my friends.   There are three bucks in this photo alone.  
My friend Alyce, surrounded by deer!
We have gotten a lot of snow the last two days.  My work was actually closed yesterday because of it.  

A friend fixed my little netbook so I'm back to using it.  Although I can't help but notice that my Chromebook has a much larger screen.  I'm going to have to crack down and figure out how to download images onto it.

I'll write another post about the other animals we saw on the road trip.  Hawks and wild turkeys!

Friday Smiles - 102

Hello everyone!  I'm joining up with Annie at A Stitch In Time. for Friday Smiles.  If you need to smile hop on over and see what others are sharing.

I've been busy knitting the last couple of weeks so my funny is related to knitting, along with another past time that I enjoy. 
I must admit, I haven't seen any of the new season.  I may end up watching it at the end, having a marathon Downton Abbey day!
