From ice skates to golf skirts...

 The new ice skates arrived all pink and white as promised, and my lil Peach is just thrilled with them.  She is learning to balance and glide -- little by little, step by step.  It's been fun watching her.  I am gaining more strength and ability on my skates too, but I must admit that I fell twice yesterday.  The ice had a great crack and a punky spot where my skates caught and tripped me up.  No big deal, just a slight ankle bruise that will look terrific with my golf skirt.

Yep, I said golf skirt.  Hubs and I are flying out tomorrow to Arizona to watch our youngest son play in his first college golf tournament of the season.  It should be fun!  I love walking on golf courses.  When a girl goes from dry prairie to a lush golf course, it's such a treat.  The green grass, the flowers and beautiful landscapes make it a pleasure to chase a little white ball around.   I don't golf.  I have.  I can.  But I don't.  I get enough golf talking, golf walking and golf watching to satisfy any desire to golf, but I do like wearing the clothes that go along with golf.  I especially like skirts and T-shirts.  That's what I've got packed to wear on the course, but I can't go without jeans and boots to wear on the plane, to wear bumming around, and for driving home in the truck.  Our ThirdBorn bought a Chevy truck for his construction job, and we're driving it the 20 hours home.  It'll be fun to see country we've never been through before on wheels.  See ya in a week!


  1. Woohoo, enjoy the fun and sunshine and warmth! As well as the drive through some beautiful countryside. I hope you can stop a bit and get off the main road to see things up close!

    Great to see the little one enjoying her skates!

  3. Have a grand time, Jody! The skates are so cute. I know you'll enjoy the sunshine and warmth in the southeast.

  4. ROADTRIP!!! How exciting -- I LOVE a good roadtrip and you'll be going through some exciting country. I'm so impressed that you're ice-skating. I'd fall and break something. Have a wonderful trip!

  5. Enjoy every minute! And soak in that Vitamin D!


  6. Yippee for you and walking on the greens! I'm sure you'll make the most of your time away. Love those new skates!

  7. WARM...oh how I envy you! WARM, SUNSHINE...oh how I envy you, Jody! WARM...
    Debbie, Artful Aspirations, is going to be in AZ as!

  8. I agree that following your son around a beautiful golf course sounds like just thing after (during) a long winter. Have a ball! ;)

    Blessings, Debbie

  9. That was smart of your kiddo to pick somewhere very unMontana-ish to go to college. Hope it is a great trip!

  10. Enjoy the sweet fellowship with your guys!

  11. Hope you're having a great time, Jody! Can't wait to hear all about it.


  12. Pom Pom said you were heading to Phoenix. My husband and I just got back from Scottsdale where we spent a few days at the Valley Ho where my husband's company was having a meeting. Interesting place to visit, but I couldn't imagine living there. Not enough rain or trees for me! Hope you had a good time.
