In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

My week was as crazy as Indiana weather!

So...last week.....
On Friday (not two days ago, but last Friday), my Shug took off and we went and looked at all of this granite.  See the house blog for more pics of this place, and to see my island counter top.  Among everything else going on in life, we are working on the kitchen now and the deadline is before Easter!

On Saturday I realized my phone wasn't working properly, so after spending over an hour on the phone with Apple, they scheduled an appointment for me to come and see them the next day.  Valentine's Day!  My Shug had house stuff to do anyway, so I asked my cousin, Vickie, to join me.  We decided to shop since the store is in The Fashion Mall (bonus) and eat at P.F. Chang's (double bonus) amongst all the lovely couples celebrating Valentine's Day! The mall is a good hour away.

Well....while we were there.......and after she bought me this strawberry covered with Godiva......for 8 bills.....because it was Valentine's day after all.....and after I spent an hour and forty minutes in the apple store, they gave me a new phone... we left.  And had snowed like crazy and the roads were A.W.F.U.L.   So bad, that it never occurred to us to take any pictures!  We were really scared.  And if you know where I live....there are two ways to get to our house.  We chose the one with the overpass, no guard rails,  that reduces from two lanes to one, then back to two, with a merge.......because the other way had not been traveled at all.  With slick roads and little visibility it was very scary.  And first, we stopped at Meijer for some lunch meat and clothes because Vickie was spending the night (because of the weather-not because she planned on it) and we hadn't had any dinner and it was 8:00ish!
Good thing she bought us a piece of fruit for nourishment!  (seriously Vickie, this was $8 bills?!?!!)
We didn't even get a latte' or anything.We made it home safely, only to get up the next morning to head back to Indy.  Which would have been Monday.   President's Day.

Why are we going back to Indy, you ask?  Because we had massage appointments at the spa....and after the night before....I needed a massage bad!  And the roads were all cleared up!
I sure wish I could show you the pool area but I didn't take my phone/camera to it with me.  It was very nice and we had use of the pool, hot tub, workout room, and sauna, all day long.  Included with the massage.  Well, after the massages we got dressed and decided to eat the hotel restaurant.

They give you this big honking slice of butter with a sprinkling of sea salt on it to go with
these breads and crackers.  YUM!
I don't know who these people are...maybe the original Conrads...and their pet moose.
 While we were waiting on our valet' service...
 we took a few pics.
Well...I did.
I think these lions came from MGM in Las Vegas (kidding)!
Darnit....I left my selfie stick at home.  

And I missed the name of the hotel....
There we go!  Cousin Vickie, Sister Theresa, Mom, Me...
all with greasy hair and frumpy clothes!  
Hey we were relaxing!
And ummm, I would not go into that restaurant dressed this way for dinner.  But it was 2:00ish and we were almost the only ones inside.
Here's a pic with the name of the hotel.
 Downtown Indianapolis scenery!
So after a busy week of painting, and working on the house, and massages, and phone issues, and crocheting, and snow storms.....Saturday (yesterday) it got up to 66 degrees and MY BEES WERE OUT IN EVERY HIVE!!!!!  YAHOO!!!!!
I love 66 degrees in February!!!  I hate snow storms!!
