Hockey Results....

So, last night's game against the Healy Coal Kings was another good one. Not as good for them as it was for us, though. *grin* We won, 6 to 3. Of course, their two best players AND their regular goalie were all missing from the game, so that probably had a good bit to do with our winning. DD got 2 of the six goals against Healy, though. I think she was the only one of our girls to get more than 1 goal during the game. She came off the ice understandably thrilled.

This morning we were up at 6:45 to be at Ft WW by 8:15 for another game. This time against one of the FAHA Tier 4 teams. DD was goalie this time, and only let one of their goals through. Final score was 8 to 1, our win.

Other than that, just kinda cooling my heels around the house today. I've got some cleaning up around the house to do. I started de-cluttering (again) and tidying up yesterday. I need to keep on. The clutter seems to multiply astronomically fast, around here.

The hubby is at work for the day, the kiddo over at her best friend's house, so it's just me & the dogs tripping over each other. Maybe that means I'll actually get something done, if I don't spend too long on here. *grin*

And, of course, Dad's coming over for dinner tonight. I'm making meatloaf, by popular request, mashed potatoes & greenbeans. And we've got some radishes in the fridge that need to get eatten before they go bad. Dad donated a Blackberry Pie to the cause of a good meal. *grin*


The surgery for the guy from DH's work was unsuccessful and he lost all 3 of the fingers. DH's boss thinks the guy will probably sue the company on charges of inadequately kept equipment or something, and win. *sigh* Part of me thinks that hopefully the judge will toss his butt out of the courtroom for stupidity for sticking his fingers in a thing with rotating blades in the first place. The other part of me knows, though, that this is one guy who's likely going to have a hard time finding a job again, though, with only 7 of his 10 fingers. Not a whole lot of unskilled jobs to be had that don't require good use of one's hands. Anyway..... DH has been very careful, of course.


As far as finishing my craft projects.... I've only got 5 more granny-squares to crochet an edging on, then I get to join the squares together. THEN that afghan will be completed. But, it's not happening in time to get on to finishing that apron today. So, maybe next weekend. One thing at a time, though.... That's my mantra right now.... One thing at a time.



Barefoot Gardener tagged me with this in an Email. I decided to post it here instead:


This one is a bit different from the rest. Four things about me that you may or may not have known in no particular order. The directions are at the end.

Four jobs I have had in my life:

1) Pizza maker
2) Bookseller
3) craft-store clerk
4) Library Page

Four movies I've watched more than once:

1) Robin Hood Prince of Thieves (every day for a year, when I was in 8th grade or so, I had that script MEMORIZED, word for word, pauses and everything.)
2) The Day After Tomorrow. (I esp. like watching this in the winter when it makes me feel WARM! *grin*)
3) The Very Thought of You (ooooooh, Joseph Fiennes is hot in this one!)
4) LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring. (First, because this is a fantastic movie series, second because Orlando Bloom is so freaking hot!)

Four places I have lived:

1) Landstuhl, Germany (birthplace)
2) Spokane, Washington (with my aunt & uncle for a little bit as we moved from Germany back to the states, though it was only a couple of months)
3) Rapid City South Dakota
4) North Pole, Alaska

1) Paris France
2) Madrid Spain
3) Florida
4) Alaska

Four of my favorite foods:

1) King Crab legs
2) fresh bread
3) bratwursts with all the toppings
4) creme brulee

Four places I would rather be right now:

1) In bed sleeping.
2) Hawaii with Mom, or Arizona with Shelli
3) in bed sleeping.
4) a nice, warm restaraunt being served yummy food & chatting with friends.

Four friends I think will respond:

I'm not sending this on, though maybe some of my blogger friends will post their answers on their own blogs. (Leave me a note, if you do!)

Four Things I am looking forward to this year:

1) Summer
2) gardening
3) warm weather
4) fresh veggies

Four T.V. Shows that I watch:

1) ER
2) Stargate Atlantis
3) Biggest Loser
4) America's Funniest Home Videos (primarly because DH & DD love it, though I think it often leaves something to be desired)

RETURN DIRECTIONS: Now, here's what you're supposed to do... And please do not spoil the fun. Hit forward, delete my answers and type in your answers. Then send this to a whole bunch of people you know INCLUDING the person who sent it to you. The theory is that you will learn some little known facts about those who know you. Remember to send it back to the person who sent it to you.


I think that's about it.

Have a Blessed Day!

I wonder what sport will be Micah's favorite?

Good post.

Congrats on the big win and the two goals!

congrats to DD on the win!

You know, I was talking to bro about the whole finger thing (while eating lunch, no less) and we couldn't decide if the salt would work as a preservative and up his chances of a successful surgery or just dry everything up and work against him. I guess now we know.

I have plenty of clutter and I been going though it and tossing it.
Good job on your two goals.

Congrats to DD and her team on the wins.

While I agree that it will be hard for the guy to find a job with three missing fingers, I have to say that it's his own fault. I stand by my comment on how stupid he was to stick his hand in something with a rotating blade. It is a shame the surgery wasn't successful though.

One thing at a time... That's the best way to do it. Good luck getting your projects finished, and getting your clutter sorted out.

Congratulations on the win.

And an interesting "4 things". You've lived and traveled to such interesting places!

Connie Peterson said...

No WAY!!! When did you live in Rapid City??? That's our home town!!! We only moved away from there in 1990!!!!

How unreal!! How did you get there and how did you like it???

Congratulations to DD's team!

I agree that the guy was stupid for sticking his hand in there in the first place, but I hate that they couldn't save his fingers.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Crab Legs *drool*
