Talk to someone who you have lost touch with over the years. This can be through e-mail, phone or in person, you choose. Let me know how it goes! :-)
Last week I was super excited to watch an old movie but had trouble finding time because I worked both Friday night and then Saturday night. Luckily, I woke up at around 10:30 on Saturday morning turned on the T.V while I was having breakfast and saw that "Dirty Dancing" was playing! I was so excited knowing that is was the one I wanted to watch with the recent passing of dear handsome Johnny (aka Patrick Swayze). I did not move from my couch from the start of the movie to the finish! I cried, I laughed and even took Tucker in my arms and danced around the living room to "I've had the time of my life." It was a great Saturday morning!

Watch an old movie that you haven't seen in a long time. Maybe it will be an old Disney movie you own or one that you use to know all the words to. Let me know how it goes.
So this week I was going to go up to a stranger and say, "Hi, How are you?" I thought this task was going to be relatively easy for me being that I'm pretty out going already. I was never prepared for what actually happened. Thursday I was in the grocery store in Aylmer picking up my weekly groceries. I always carry my cell phone with me to calculate all my groceries up so I don't go over budget. I was walking down the cereal aisle and spotted an elderly couple carrying a big storage Rubbermaid container. I thought, perfect targets for my dare. I walked in their direction with a smile on my face and than the old lady came up to me screaming that she was allergic to cells phones and was telling me to put mine away. I quickly dashed out of the aisle and continued my shopping trip. Just when I was going down the last aisle I spotted the old couple and unfortunately the old lady remembered me and started chasing me to try to get my phone, that she was apparently allergic too. The manager ended up escorting the delusional woman out of the store and I was able to finish my shopping but didn't try to say, "how are you?" to anyone else!
Have a great week!

Every week I can't wait till this time of the week, Friday! No matter how busy or stressful a Friday is I always have the thought of the weekend in the back of my head to push me through the storm.

The day that I always look forward to most is Monday of the fair because it's the derby day! Most of the out of towner's are gone back home and the locals crowd around the ring and watch cars crash into each other for 4 hours. It's great! This year was especially exciting because we had two friends in the derby; Adam and Kyle.
The guys with their derby cars! Loved the Mountainview colors!
I was so excited seeing their cars drive into the ring to go head to head with 6 other cars. When the cars got going I started to get mad at the other participants hitting the boys. Eventually their cars had enough crashing and quit. First Kyle was out at the far end and Adam right in the middle of the action getting continuously hit even with his white flag out the window.
When I try to describe my feelings for the fair to "city" friends they just don't understand the excitement I feel. They think it's silly and a waste of time to be standing around a dirty area, shivering because of the fall dampness. To me however I couldn't love it more. Country music, great food and chatting with new and old friends! What else could a small town girl ask for?
