No this is not my Harley but more about it in a minute
Here I go Again, I don’t know why I have that Whitesnake song in my head but I do. Shows you how old I am. Ha
Hello, Hello, Hello how are you? I don’t know where you live but here in the south it has been HOT!!!! Every day in the 90’s and then add in the humidity and it is almost unbearable.
I have had the best weekend and I just want to share some things that have been going on. I had a long weekend off from work starting with Friday. I had an appointment with my Scruffy dog to get his eyes checked at UT Vet Hospital in Knoxville. The Doctor was so happy with Scruffy, his eyes are doing great and best of all. He can see!!! This has just opened up a new world to him he is so curious now about everything. He has also gotten a lot braver and rushes to the door barking when someone comes in. He never did that before. Of course I guess it was hard to bark at what you couldn’t see.
Anway I am so happy. He is also out of the cone collar for most of the time.
Y’all I stepped out of my comfort zone a little Friday night and went to a Biker Rally with my friend Lorie and her husband Paul. They have a camper at the site where the Rally is held every year, and Paul is part of the crew that does the Rally. I could never be accused of being anything like a biker chick but turns out it doesn’t matter I was welcomed just the same. I had a great time. The money raised helps support charities so it’s all for a good cause. Several bands played and there were many food vendors. One of the bikers told me I was dressed a little fancy for a biker rally. I told him it was my first one I’ll know next time. Lol.
I saw some gorgeous bikes
I had so much fun and saw some amazing bikes, mostly Harleys. I didn’t get to ride one but Paul (Lorie’s husband) has promised me a ride soon.
I also got busy and finished knitting three scarves ( remember I told you I couldn’t knit just one at a time). The good thing about working on more than one at a time is you get finished with three almost at the same time. See, there is a method to my madness.
I do love to knit scarves they’re fun and you can take them anywhere with you. I always keep one going in the car. I am also trying to knit enough scarves by Christmas, both men’s and women’s, to have enough to give all the patients at our local kidney dialysis clinic. I feel for those people and know that Mark and I are so fortunate that he didn’t have to spend one day on dialysis before he got his kidney transplant. If you missed that story you can check out parts 1 and 2 here and here I would love to just do a little something special for those having to travel to the dialysis clinic several times a week. Especially in the winter when it is so cold.
We have a few blackberries on our property. A very few. Every year I try to catch them when they ripen and make a cobbler. Every year I wait too late and someone, I guess one of our neighbors, comes along and gets them. I am not sure who does this. The blackberries are close to the end of our driveway and people probably assume they are free for the taking. I noticed last Wednesday that there were a few, probably enough for a cobbler. I went back yesterday to get them and they were gone!!! Do you think that stopped me from having my cobbler? noooooooo.
Don’t judge me. It was delicious.
And now more about that Whitesnake song I think it says a lot about me right now. Life is for living it is too short not to enjoy and do the things you want. An’ I ain’t wasting no more time.
I don’t know where I’m going
But, I sure know where I’ve been
Hanging on the promises
In songs of yesterday
An’ I’ve made up my mind,
I ain’t wasting no more time
Here I go again
Here I go again.
You know you’re singing it in your head now, if you’re old enough to know that song lol.
Join me on Tuesday I will be sharing some of my new favorite things.
Love your day your way
