I had an idea LOL ,While at the cabin , I wrote a letter to Diane♥Diane's place BSH! of Diane's Place and ♥Connie /Meow The Blogger Queen of varieties of life ,just little notes about friendship etc , then added a memo to anyone who finds these note in a bottle ,if they wouldn't mind to contact me and added my email and phone and address as well as both friends blogsites add. as they are of public domain , I know it is just a lark but I actually put them inside of plastic bags inside the bottles ( little different than pic here these were my first lame attempts ,LOL, I had alot of bottles to use notice the bag of pretzels tee hee ) and taped the lids so

nothing could get in or out !LOL I then went down to the beach shown in pics below and gave them a humongous fling into the Atlantic Ocean , said a little prayer and that was that!!!!! Wouldn't it be awesome if they were found and still legible , and I was not 101 years old hahaha. Anyway "Here's to friendships , where ever they may be , across the lands , across the sea's , Internet or In real life (IRL) they are very important to ME!!!!!!! :-)Then the snow !:-( it snuck up on us quickly , everything was all fall colours an pretty and then ,wham ,,,snow on the mountains and headed our way , we don't want to get trapped down there in heavy snowfall , you would need skidoo to get out and would have to leave your vehicle there all winter , uhhhh not an option . SO we took down the flag that we put up late summer , the weather is not kind to flags down there , it's a savage, shredding and endlessly battering the poor things . So down it comes as it was only in this condition since the last storm, we change them frequently , you can see why !Big fluffy snowflakes on the cabin road Uh Oh , Highway was getting more than we thought I hate this hill below, it doesn't look as bad as it is , to the left where the pole is starts a 50 foot drop and then straight down onto houses below (I wouldn't live there if I won a house there!)

Also the road turns and is slick even in good weather , I have seen alot worse in town here but this one gives me the creeps ,,,,,and for good reason,,,,,JUST SO HAPPENS can ya tell??? yes I know I take my camera everywhere , I literally do , can you see on the right hand side below , someone hasn't got their winter tires on yet YIKES or it is just too slippery !we stopped to see if anyone bent over on dash etc as you cannot tell from passing , nope all gone but they were not there long the truck was still warm .
and as usual around these parts the snowplow , a common occurrence , it comes afterward . not before it is needed , although this is not alot of snow for us ,with our terrain (HILLS AND MORE HILLS) we need the plow out any time it snows !this one is on the bottom of that hill !!!!and now entering the blurry city LOL . actually most of this is gone just some chunks like that in everything we dislike , will not go away !!!!

So remember if you get snow , get your winter tires , pump your brakes when needed reduce speed and follow the snowplow if you can find it LOL


have a great day

Ladies ..........

Someone will always be prettier. Some will always be smarter. Some of their houses will be bigger. Some will drive a better car. Their children will do better in school. And their husband will fix more things around the house. So let it go, and love you and your circumstances. Think about it! The prettiest woman in the world can have hell in her heart. And the most highly favored woman on your job may be unable to have children. And the richest woman you know, she's got the car, the house, the clothes~~~~ might be lonely. And the word says, "If I have not Love, I am nothing." So, again, love you. Love who you are. Look in the mirror in the morning and smile and say, "I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed, to be disappointed!" "Winners make things happen~~ Losers let things happen." Be "blessed" ladies~~~~~ and pass this on to encourage another woman.
This was an email that I recieved this Morn and thought I'd pass it along to all the ladies , Girlfriends around the world ,
Know your self worth
Bee Happy :-)

I love this pic ,this place is just past our cabin , it is literally 45 min or so from my front door,I showed pic on an old post of the other side of these mountains this is the very end of the road ,the mountains and ocean all coming together it is so quiet sometimes it feels like the end of the earth !

About the end haha , we had no power for over 9 hours and some areas on the island are still without . The weather has been having fun with trees and electrical lines and keeping the linesmen very busy a very stormy day , we had the rain wind etc and for most of us here ,we are use to it and wicked weather doesnt raise an eyebrow mosts days but I hate hate having no power . NO COMPUTERS ,,,AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

not a sound of Tv drowning out the world ,oh dear what to do ? LOL I am one who likes to be prepared even if there is nothing to be prepared for ,,,,well I like things just in case and it worked out for us today ,people (HERE) scoff and think I am a worry wart but did they enjoy a hot meal ? why yes they did ,whilst their neighbours down the road or other side of town ate cold dried out sandwiches ('dried out' added for effect of making my point LOL) . Did those around me have back up lights to at least read and find their way around ? I think sooooo ,,,no hanging in the dark by their feet here !!!!!!!!Did they enjoy the radio and extra batteries for all the things they needed ?YES , even a back up mini generator for phone /home and charging cell's . As most" home " phones do not work without electricity ,GAWD forbid they'd have to walk to another room and be tethered to the wall on a corded phone if the cordless ones had no plug in or if

if by chance their cells gave out and needed charging , Lordy !!!!!!!!,what would they do ?????;-)

I guess my post has the stench of sarcasm ,it is not hidden well but I am always ribbed about wanting things prepared and charged or enough bottled water to fill the tub LOL and whatever you need in case of anything really ,I know our little part of the world wasn't hit as hard as many but I was prepared ,like a good girl guide tee hee .

To all those out there giggling while reading this , I will still share with ye in a storm!!! :-)

Have a fabulous fun filled day , laugh out loud you may like it !
