Happy Sunday ya all! 😀
Coming in pretty late this morning but I made it.
I had a busy morning and was not organized enough to get a post out before I took off. Home now though with a new book (SSSSQQQUUUEEEE!!!) which I will reveal tonight when I post the It’s Monday! What Are You reading post.
Yes I went snow tubing yesterday and yes it was cold but it was fun too. There were 21 of us…. one injury that involved a trip to the emergency room, I was not the victim, but I was the driver to the hospital. Turned out to be not too bad, a sprang ankle.
Came home and covered myself in blankets and a good book and then promptly fell asleep. What is it about being out in the cold and wind that wipes a person out?
In other exciting news… this morning I signed on with some friends to do the March 12th Polar Bear Plunge for The Special Olympics. I have always wanted to try the plunge and I guess this is my chance to do so. The group I am doing this with has an additional stipulation…. our team will wear prom dresses and tiaras.
Well…. ok then. 😀
I am all about the memories and living life to the fullest so here we go…..
(And I thought I was cold yesterday)
So today I am off to read for the afternoon while washing clothes and doing a little book room straightening for breaks.

Glad to hear that you weren’t hurt tubing! And the prom dress/tiara Polar Bear Plunge sounds awesome! I would never in a million years do it, but sounds like it would be fun to watch! Be sure someone takes pictures of your plunge! 🙂
LOL – its about a 30 second commitment and think of the stories…LOL…. and there has to be great drowned rat looking pictures right? 😀
That plunge sounds like craziness. I don’t know if I’d be brave enough to do it. Altho the tiaras and prom dress part sounds hilarious. 😀
LOL Kristen – that is part of the sell for me…. I love great memories!
Oh, my, what will you think of next? I guess that’s what keeps life interesting….
I know what you mean about cold weather, although you might question my understanding of the term, living here in California…LOL
I’ve been writing, blogging, etc., this morning, so now I’m off to read some more.
Sometimes I dont have to think of things, like this one… it was thought up for me. YAY! And I was thinking life wasn’t going to get exciting again until the first bike ride of the year in May!
Today I have listened to several CD’s with Stephen Fry narrating the last Harry Potter-book. I have also seen a new Gossip girl-episode on TV, and read a few chapters in Brontë’s “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall”. Now it is evening and I wait anxiously on a new episode of “Downton Abbey” which is scheduled to air in about an hour:)
You are doing awesome Elida – I am just getting into a book now 😉
You are so brave to take the plunge but its for such a good cause I don’t blame you and it will be a great memory!
I didn’t want to say anything yesterday but the one and only bone I’ve ever broken was when I went tubing with my family! I broke my wrist trying to catch myself when I flew off. Whoops. It’s still fun though 🙂
Thanks for not saying anything yesterday Amused! 😀 I am in one piece and have never broken a bone… yet.
i have a special place in my heart for the special olympics but the polar bear plunge??? like the warm blanket part of it…..
I verified the immediate after plan which is hot tub. 😀
So glad you weren’t hurt, and the person that was is okay. Good Luck with the plunge I know its for a good cause but not sure if I could plunge in such cold weather.
As for what I’m doing I hope to get through my emails then off to read this book been wanting to finish for days but been distracted all this week.
I just keep reminding myself that it will be quick 😀
I like your attitude about life! Make sure you post pics before you all take the plunge!!
Before and after Staci….. I am never too far from my camera 😀
I think I would just have to donate money to the Special Olympics and forget the plunge! You are brave!
That would be too easy Kathy! I like the sense of adventure 😀
The Polar Bear Plunge? Yikes! Sounds cold…very very cold. I’m already looking forward to the crazy pictures! 😉
I am brave because it is still two months our Megan 😀
Sounds like the polar bear plunge will be fun and fashionable hopefully not freezing.
I am glad it is in March Esme… I see there are some going on right now… BBRRRRRRRRR 😛
Hey I went snow tubing yesterday at Bear Creek!
I didn’t get injured either.
virtual *high five*!!!
Prom Dresses and Tiaras will be AWESOME! I am not willing to try it but I can’t wait to read about your adventures.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
P.S. I am sending you an email
LOL Brooks…. yeah…. I hope it is quite memorable 🙂
Now that I want pictures of! I would never do anything like the polar bear plunge, but the tubing looks like fun. 🙂
LOL Alyce – no worries there…. those pictures might actually be worthy of me posting for that picture meme you do 😀
Hadnt heard of the Polar Bear Plunge til now, and in prom dresses and tiara’s … what a hoot! Can’t wait to see pics 😀
I think Sheree if I am going to do it…. do it big. 😛
Your coming polar bear plunge sounds hilarious. At least you aren’t doing it on New Year’s Day like most organizations do. I’m freezing just thinking about it.
I was just telling my hubby last night that I was glad we had 12 weeks for it to hopefully warm up – just a bit!
You are just a little bit crazy maybe 🙂 … I will be rooting you on in spirit!
LOL…. maybe Julie…
as cold as it was out today….
I hop eyou get to wear tights or leg warmers in the Plung! Cold cold! Sounds fun though. ANother down side to living in Sunny Arizona ~ no snow or snow events 😦 If I was one for hiking then it would be perfect, but alas I’m not lol.
I think I will where long johns! 😀
OMG…you are truly truly unbelievable…a polar bear plunge in Minnesota…yikes…I spent my Sunday moaning in bed with a stomach flu…
Oh no! Hope you are better now Patty!
The Polar Bear Plunge sounds cold but fun and for a great cause! Good for you for going for it!
I am trying not to think of the cold part right now Kathleen… currently 12 below zero in Minnesota. Glad the plunge is not for 8 weeks. 😀
