a great night

S called me on my way home stating he had " cabin fever" - so when I arrived home we looked for something fun to do, decieding on an outing to downtown Denver proper. So we loaded up the mom van and off we went, we landed at the Denver Pavillions and first just walked around doing a bit of shopping, at bath and body works Hh and I got lavander and chamomile sleep spray for pillows- oh my it smells so good, then we also purchased their newest fragrence line the Orchids and it has a hint of plumeria, exotic and a bit musky - nice too. while we were in there S went to Breaking the mold- a candle shop and purchased a candle ( round and smells wonderful too. we must have had a thing for that.

I should back up a minute here to say that we parked in a 10$ lot and waited about 10 minutes to put our money in the automated machine, when a nice lady drove up behind us and offered us her ticket as she was pulling away, well that was very nice we took it.

then off to the 16th street mall and a shuttle ride down to Larimer, then we decied on P.F. changs for dinner, we had to wait a bit, but the food was wonderful. and we even had a little bit of desert.

when we were done with dinner, we went back to the mall, where we all rode back to the pavillions in a horse drawn wagon it took all 5 of us and Hh loved everyminute of it. S and I hadn't done that since we got engaged. so all in all a great evening. Coming soon we will put up the high blue belts.

There is no friend like the old friend

who has shared our morning days,

No greeting like his welcome,

no homage like his praise;

Fame is the sentless sunflower,

with guady crown of gold;

But friendship is the breathing rose,

with sweets in every fold.

wow- a sink hole

here is the Denver channel news story

This could be a nightmare in the morning and over the next few days, as this is the major roadway through Denver N and S. I have to go down to Colorado Springs on Sunday night to work on Monday morning at UCCS , right now it seems that the South boand is o.k. but this is messing up the HOV lanes too, as they are letting all the north bound traffic us these two lanes to get around the problem.

Punxsutawney Phil Sees His Shadow, Predicts More Winter in U.S.
By Dan Hart
Feb. 2 (Bloomberg) -- The groundhog called Phil emerged from his burrow this morning in central Pennsylvania and saw his shadow, which according to legend signals there will be six more weeks of winter in the U.S.
Phil's handlers removed him from his stump-shaped shelter on a stage in Punxsutawney at 7:27 a.m. local time. They then said Phil saw his shadow. The forecast elicited some boos from the crowd gathered to await the 122nd annual weather prediction.
Punxsutawney Phil and his predecessors have seen their shadows 97 times, or about 80 percent of the time, since 1887, according to the Groundhog Club, which conducts the annual event atop Gobbler's Knob. Only 15 times has the Punxsutawney groundhog not seen his shadow, including last year, while another nine results weren't recorded, the club said.
If he sees his shadow, there'll be six more weeks of winter weather, and if he doesn't, there will be an early spring, according to superstition.
To contact the reporter on this story: Dan Hart in Washington at .
I too see my shadow this morning, so sory guys and gals a little more winter is just around the corner. I am hoping for good presents and there seems to be a bunch yeah! will let you know later on my take !

see this post- my birthday - her birthday

K8- knows how to do it up right, her theme parties are a scream. Interstingly as I talked to her last night I said I was going to re-post about this party, because on my sitemeter we can show I am directing trafic her way by having this photo linked to her Blog I am not entirely sure why it comes up in images, except in my original post I said this would be my kind of party, and quoted Gretchen Wilson lyrics - red neck woman.

Well I am not going to have a theme party- but I did ask for a few things. One that I didn't get at Christmas was a shower radio- I am hoping for that?!? and, hmmn I also stated that I wanted a " cold stone birthday cake" with chocolate and cherry and that took some effort on S's part. So I am hoping that will be a part of my party. He already did a good deed with my Cherry chocolate Dr. Pepper this was in limited release, not sure how much longer we can get it.
