Where Am I?
In my little house, in a rural town of 300, in Eastern Oregon, and still in my jammies. I love Saturdays like this.
However, I have already driven up and down the two lane road, in my jammies, on black ice to take Kid #1 to get to the school to teach a basketball camp for little kids. Eight miles away. We were late (teen daughter does not like to move in the mornings). We left at 7:55ish, and the camp started at 8 am. So I was going 70 mph.
I know it's black ice, because I 'tested' my new studded tires when I braked at a stop sign, and slid, but happily stayed in my lane, and didn't go over the line too far. I'm calling this a 'win'.
And, it's a foggy day, and 28 degrees. January is our inversion month. Warm and sunny up at Anthony Ski Resort - 17 miles up the road, cold and nasty and icy in the hood.
Which brings us to Kid #2. He is recuperating from a ski accident from yesterday (first day on his new ski's, he broke one ski brake while coming down Starbottle Run and going too darn fast). I'm a little miffed because this was Day #1 of 8 days of our local ski program. Hope he can continue. His knee is not feeling good. But he isn't screaming in pain, or crying, and he looks fine. So I am considering this another win. No broken bones - and he can walk and talk.Well, limp. He limps.
I have chosen my OLW for 2015. It's Be.
To Be still, Be me, Beleive, look for the Beauty in all things, and to Let it Be.
And yes, I am taking Ali's One Little Word Class.
And Today's Line Up:
Interestingly, I thought today was going to be a nice lazy day. Turns out.. I'll be running! But, in the spirit of my new word, I am letting it all just Be!
- Kid#1 has a 1pm game. Varsity Girls. She then has to work concessions all day. Followed by movie night with her posse at her boyfriend's casa.
- Kid #2: Finished taking down all the garland and bows off my white picket fence. Sniff. So long Christmas. And he is laying low. Injuries and computer time.
- Helping a friend with a display board for her daughter who is on our local rodeo's court - judging happens on Jan. 31st. Thank Goodness for A roomful of scrap crap and my Cameo silhouette!
- Dinner in town tonight with one of my favorite coworkers/friend and his wife - Barley Brown's! Best place in Baker, in my opinion.
