Good Things.

I participated in a Miata run this weekend up to the mountains. Tony came along, too, but in his OTM (Other Than Miata). He followed behind all of us Miataphiles and I guess the run leaders forgot to tell the sweep car that he was with us, because the sweep car kept trying to shoo him past us.

It was the first time my car has been to the family cabin up there, and even though our visit was just for one night, it was a refreshing time for us. We surely do enjoy being with each other. *goofy grin* We watched the squirrels and blue jays appear and disappear with the peanuts we put out on the deck. The squirrels were burying the peanuts so fast, they were shrouded in a cloud of dust! The desperation of their attitude makes me wonder if it’s gonna be a cold, long winter up there. Also, we managed to get in our traditional visits to the candy store, our favorite breakfast place and to KMart.

When we got home last night, Tony pulled out all the Halloween decorations and started setting them up. He also bought some of those Pillsbury Halloween sugar cookies to make. Aahhhh, how I love that man.

For me, since I knew I’d be awake anyway last night (Sunday night insomnia), I decided to move Mr. White (my male fish) into the tank with The Ladies. We’re gonna try for some fish babies. It’s something I’ve been talking about doing for nearly a year now, but had to work up the nerve and get all my fish healthy. It was a project (you can read about it on my fish blog) and more traumatizing to me than to them. But all is well, for now, and it looks like they’re over there working on getting frisky with each other.

Not the best picture of him, but he’s “swishing” at the front of the tank…”

The weather has turned downright chilly and I’m loving it. We’re having crockpot beef stew tonight for dinner. The appetizing aroma of it is scenting the house right now. Maybe I’ll make some hot chocolate, too.

Right now, I have my cat on my lap keeping me warm, some gourmet chocolate from the mountains on my desk, a hummingbird contentedly passing time in my back yard, our bird just started a chirpfest upstairs and my fish are moving rocks.

For now, life is good.

    I am glad that life’s good for you right now. πŸ™‚

    Halloween decorations! When can we come and visit? hehe.

    So, when you go somewhere with your Miata club, do you guys have to hang out afterward? Or do you just drive up together?

    • My life would be better if we could hang out non-stop. πŸ˜› hehe

      The decorations aren’t completely up, but they’re completely out of storage. Because, you know, dude’s hardly ever home to put them up… slacker.

      The Miata Club usually starts with a meal (the meeting point), there might be a snack mid-run (regrouping point) and then there’s another meal at the end (ending point). We chose to partake of the beginning meal and mid-run meal, and then broke off from the group to go to the cabin. πŸ˜€ Sounds like your kinda club, huh?

  2. We fired up the crock pot this weekend as well. I made some killer (tasting) chili.

    The Miata run sounds like it was a great time. Enjoy these moments while you can.

    • Mmmmm, chili. *drool*

      The Miata run was a good thing. Even though I was kind of balking on doing it, I’m glad I did it. Tony encouraged me to do it, actually. πŸ™‚

  3. Are those Christmas lights still mounted on your roofline?
    Starting to get cooler, the water temp in our pool is dropping and you still haven’t been over for a swim. A well, perhaps next year when it warms up again.
    I didn’t realize you were a shooter too!

    • Yep, we leave the little lights strung on our back patio all year round. We have to. That’s where the hummingbirds sit. πŸ˜›

      I know… I’m so sad we didn’t make it out there this year.

      I have a .22 pistol that I bought back in 2004. It’s an enjoyable sport that both of us enjoy. πŸ™‚
