Brrrrrrrr! It’s turned cold in Oklahoma.
29 degrees on this frosty morning but the Weatherman is promising a sunny low 60 degree afternoon-hard to believe!
This was Friday night and Saturday morning-SNOW.
When the hunting party went out before dawn, I declined and stayed home where it is warm and dry.
I buzzed into Wal-Mart for cat food and picked up this book, “CopyCat” By Erica Spindler about 1 week ago. It was a good read.
“The Woods” by Harlan Coben was an excellent book. The ending was nothing like I had anticipated.
I checked out “The Promise” by Harlan Coben from the library. I just started reading it yesterday, so far it is addictive.
It was even better the second time around.
One word for you Brian, sequel.
Last Tuesday evening (1 week ago), when it was still warm and windy, before Oklahoma turned into the Artic Circle……………….. I was attacked.
I was mindlessly strolling thru the gate carrying Scooter’s feed bucket when a psycho Praying Mantis jumped at my face.
I nearly had a heart attack!
The damn thing jumped right onto my face. I know I have a sorta big head, but c’mon.
I swung Scooters bucket at the crazy bug which sent Scooter into a fit. I thought Scooter might have stomped the Mantis.
No such luck.
After I recovered the bucket, filled it with Scooters Equine Senior, I approached the gate and that psycho Mantis was waiting for me again!
This time I ran and got my camera:
I hope the Mantis is gone for good. I did not kill it despite my urge to smash it dead…..
Scooter my protector, making sure I was okay after my Mantis attack.
It took me a few minutes to recover from my near cardic arrest-geesh that thing scared the crappola outta me.
Cellas milk chocolate covered cherries, in liquid-yummy!
This is the only kind of chocolate covered cherries I like. The ones that are soaked in that white, cream stuff are nasty-eww.
Yankee Candles are not something I have ever tried. I was renewing my car tag and noticed Yankee Candles in the store next door.
After my car registration was all taken care of, I went into the store and bought 2 Yankee votive candles. ‘Mistletoe’ and ‘Home For The Holidays’. I bought the small ones because I was not going to invest $10 on a candle I may not like.
Good thing too.
I burned the votives the other night, I was not impressed with the Yankee Candles…..
The Wildfire brand of ‘Coyote Ugly’ smells delicious!
This candle is in the tin and made in Sapulpa OK.
The little candle in the tin made my house smell wonderful…..even better than a Glade candle.
I am tempted to go back and buy another tin of this scent. But I wont.
I need more candles like I need a hole in my head.
Wee One had a preschool fundraiser about 1 month ago and had to sell $80 worth of candles.
Since no one around here is much of a saleman or saleswoman, the hubs bought $80 dollars worth of candles.
I have about 1/3 of them sold but selling the rest does not look like it is going to happen. I think I’ll throw them into my Christmas care packages, if I decide to do the packages.
Marvin is upset with me.
I accidentally stepped on his tail while I was wearing my boots. He’s been sulking about ever since.
Geesh, I said I was sorry! Get over it already.
