2018...


I'm going to start out with that...

But, We had an impromptu New Years Eve gathering.... and I had a amazing time, So much so,... I may have danced a little too much, and I may have drank enough idiot oil to drown a small village... but, many fun times were had...  And I got a lot of stories the next day.... Some I remembered.. Some I had no idea...  It was one of those nights that you accidentally got drunk.. lol seriously, We had a good hearty dinner (made chili and cornbread) then started out with a small drink, people started to show up, we started playing music... All of us girls were dancing.. and when I say all of us girls, it was about 8 of us we started out line dancing and messing around, doing the sprinkler and rave music.. then we got serious and apparently Lisa and I acted out the whole Madonna's like a prayer video for everyone... and poor Rollo and Gemma were so tired they passed out before 12am..
About 11:45 I queued up a Scottish bagpipe version of the Auld Lang Syne.  It was only fitting right?
So, we rung in the new year with a count down and then the bagpipes...
annnnnnnd then the dancing started in again... and that is a bit where things got fuzzy....  So I awoke the next morning, very very sore.. haha
I went in about 2:30-3am....
I woke up to a baby on the loose running around outside of the paddock he is supposed to be in.. wrangled him with Lisa's help.. and then came back into the house and proceeded to freeze on the couch...  but, I did manage to put on a corned beef in the crockpot...
Us girls watched a few movies while we waited for the corned beef to finish cooking.. then we had a great meal with Black eyed peas, Collard Greens and Corned Beef... pretty uneventful day.. but I have to admit.. I was sick of people complaining about this football team and that one, and who is obnoxious fans now.... I really don't care.... and don't care to see it on facebook.. I also don't care to see pictures of frozen water bottles from your car leftover from the night before...  but, then I thought I was being a judgemental jerk and needed to just turn off facebook.. and that is what I did....
So the next day, Elena and I were supposed to drive back to New York, but, woke up to about 6 degree weather..  and holy crap it was cold...
So I checked the news... and saw this crap..
So I called my uncle and he said it was just going to be about artic cold... So we started to prepare to leave and he texted me and told me they were expecting snow.... and yes, they were.. I saw on the news today they are supposed to get about 8-12 inches in Maine.. crazy.. So We decided to go at a later date.. so I sat on the couch all day freezing, because it never reached above freezing that day.... and the heat in this old un-insulated house sucks.. and it never got warmer than 60 in the house lol....  So As I sat here on the couch again this morning.. .... and We got toasty warm.. so We decided to get out today.. and went for the Japanese steak house and then ran over to the sporting store and I got an education on bows...
I originally wanted a crossbow... but, never shot one.. or a compound bow....
So I got to asking some questions and the lady at the store set me up with a bow and some arrows and took me to their archery lane.. and I got to play around with it.. I loved it...
So I wound up buying a Bowtech 2017 diamond model infinite edge pro.  has a 70 lb peak draw weight on it.. and I pull 46.1 lbs, I have a  26.5” draw length and use 27.5” 400 spine arrows....
what all this means... I'm about to learn a lot.. but, I had great groups while we were sighting it in... and then she told me to shoot random targets and I was hitting bulls eyes.. so I decided this was awesome.. and this is going to be my new hobby for the year....  I'm excited.. I have never shot a bow before..  and it's too cold outside to do it.. haha
 So I'm going to go check out some stuff about the lingo and figure this all out...
