Yep. Home from roping. Timing team roping is hard work! Long days and high intensity. This was the last roping of the series for the year. My sister and I love it though. We get to spend long weekends together. We are exhausted now. I’m going to bed early tonight, because work calls me in the morning. πŸ™‚

As a little treat after the weekend, my sister and I stopped by the store on the way home. Spent some of my hard earned cash on a couple of new blouses. Yay! They were much needed.

Hope you all had a nice weekend!

5 days off and it’s not even vacation! What could be better? I don’t work Friday or Tuesday and with Monday being a holiday…well you get the picture.

What are we doing you ask? Today; nada, zip, zilch, nothing. We will however see the folks this weekend and also help our youngest daughter move back home.

Have a wonderful, safe holiday!

Swing over
Zip over
Hop on over
Swing by
Zip by
Drop by
Those are all phrases relating to driving over or walking over to see someone. Where in the world did they come from? And can you imagine if that’s what we really did?
Hook up to a zip-line and zip by.
Hopping, swinging, dropping?
Why don’t we say I’ll drive over, or I’ll walk over?

Do you have any phrases like that?
