Match Made In Heaven

Ok, I know it’s “Silent Sunday” but I came across some stuff online and am completely bored at work so I’m posting more.  So far we have had two people call for us, both not wanting to go to the hospital so we’re back sitting around watching hockey. Yesterday I stole the remote from the boys and we watched Legally Blonde, but today I gave it up. Usually when I’m working I am the only girl on duty, so very rarely do I get to watch tv that I want to but it’s extremely rare for me to watch tv anyway. Since I handed the remote over, we are watching hockey with the rest of America.

While being bored and “googling” everything I can think of, I came across this little post:

Cancer and Pisces Compatibility

Water and Water… your ocean of emotions and feelings will always be warm and inviting, for the both of you. Cancer and Pisces are alike in so many ways; you are guided by intuitions and feelings, you both have a deep well of emotion and understanding for your fellow human beings. Your heart rules your every action. Pisces is subordinate, something you are not used to but will come to take delight in. Pisces loves to be spoiled, doted on and admired, which something you enjoy doing. You are both introverted and would much rather spend your nights indoors, watching a romantic movie and cuddling together on the couch. If you are ever upset about something, be sure that your Pisces partner will find out what it is, often faster than you might. Pisces lives by intuition, much as you do, and you will always be able to avoid arguments with one another. Why would you even want to argue with someone who shares your mind? Of course, Water signs are notorious for their need for isolation at times. So don’t expect to spend every day and night together, but then again who doesn’t appreciate a little alone time every now and again? To be honest, what you two will have a problem with in your relationship will most likely be money. Cancers have a healthy appreciation for money, and are usually good at both acquiring it and making sure it stays put. You will have to contend with your partner wanting to spend money on everything, be it an inspiring painting, a beautiful watercolour picture, anything that is artful and tasteful. So, if you don’t have a tight hold on your purse strings, you will indeed have a house full of beautiful things, but your bank account will also be drained because of it. Pisces will appreciate your jealousy, something that your other partners tended to dislike you for. For a Crab, jealousy simply means you are showing how much love you have for your partner. Pisces can tend towards the insecure and self-conscious side, and so will appreciate your loving nature. Oh my, because you both live in such deep, emotional worlds oriented in feeling and intuition, your sex life will be subtle and unique, sensitive and sentimental. You will always feel your love emanating from your partner during these experiences. Given enough time and patience, this relationship could easily last a life time. Cancer and Pisces will often seem like soul mates, like you are made for each other. If you have found your Pisces, I suggest staying with it!

Except for the “love to stay indoors” part this about sums us up! On cold rainy days we like staying inside and cuddling up to watch movies, usually those of my choice, but we LOVE being outside! If you’ve read any part of my blog before you know we enjoy geocaching, but we also love camping, kayaks, hiking, riding bikes, I LOVE my dirtbike! We never pass up a chance to be outside and when it comes to summer and water, I’m like a fish…I love water! You can’t separate us! When the weather warms up, I’m sure there will be plenty of posts of my dirtbike and the water.

One thing different between myself and my older man is sports. I love my Cardinal’s baseball! Yadi is my man! My man will watch games with me and has eveen taken me to a game but he HATE professional sports because he says they make too much money and complain too much about not getting enough…can’t argue with that. Despite all that, I am a Cardinal’s born and raised baby and that’s not going away! : )

I am so ready for summer to get here! I can’t wait to swim! Ride my dirkbike! Take out my wakeboard! And swim every chance I get! I am so ready for some warm weather! This cold stuff is killing me! I’m ready to move to Hawaii! Best vacation ever! Which I plan to review and post about later. For now, back to work and being bored. Have a safe rest of the weekend!

Stealthy Cache

I find myself once again with my cousins, who I completely love! Since the weather is nice, we will be spending the afternoon outside geocaching! I can’t wait! We have a few trackables, or travel bugs, to move on and some new caches to find. We’ll probably pick one of many local parks and start there. We’ve only hit about 2% of the parks around here, which is equivalent to 37 different parks, crazy I know. We love it, this area is loaded with parks and outdoor areas to cache.

We enjoy the adventurous woods caches rather than the city caches. City caches tend to be extremely small, require a lot of stealth, and a whole lot of patience, something we have, but we county folks enjoy the woods more. We just like nature. Now, don’t get us wrong, city caching can be fun, you can get a lot of caches in a short time and it can be quit a challenge, but out in the woods, the caches tend to be bigger and full of fun stuff, which the kids love. We also really enjoy moving trackables, we like helping them along their goal. We have our own geocaches hidden and trackables moving around. We love meeting new geocachers and have helped a few out along the ways with hints when we were leaving and they were arriving.

My Favorite Geocaching Pictures

Here are some more pictures from our geocaching adventures.

The old school house, found 1 here.

The classic container…yep, I’ve hidden one that looks like this too.

Seen far too many “birdhouses” out there…poor birds are probably getting really confused lately!

Stumbled upon this one. Accidental find here.

Seen far too many of these, they are so small we usually pass them up every time!

Not gonna lie…we geocache on the job. We call it “Street Familiarization” or “Road Training.” Best part is…the boss joins in! Too bad we found all the ones in town, now we’re bored.

These guys can be tricky if the sun isn’t just right.

Cool old working telephone booth. This cache was called “Superman.”

The hint for this one is “yes, your hand goes in there.”

My cousins just love caching!

Beautiful view of yet more water in our area.

My cousin found the one we all passed up. As you can sort of see (or not) here, this was not an easy find.

This one was located in front of an urgent care…I love the heart in this cache, it just seems fitting.

Geocaching

As promised, here are a few geocaching pictures from our adventures. From time to time I will add more pictures, but here are a few I had on my phone, there are a bunch more on my computer!

You never know what kind of speed limits you will find.

20120206-074456.jpg

Looks like the class clown made it high in the political system…I’d so do this!

20120206-074519.jpg

The last originalcovered bridge in our state that is fully functional.

20120206-074524.jpg

Firetower with a beautiful view!

20120206-074531.jpg

That’s a long way up!

20120206-074538.jpg

And this is the reward when you get to the top.

20120206-074543.jpg

Just beautiful!

20120206-074548.jpg

I love my area.

20120206-074554.jpg

It’s even more beautiful on a clear day.

20120206-074602.jpg

Overlooking river at one of many parks along the water.

20120206-074607.jpg

Another park, off another river. Great fishing hole.

20120206-074613.jpg

Another park on even more water.

20120206-074629.jpg

A wonderful vacation. This cache took us up a slick, steep hillside to overlook the entire town!

20120206-074646.jpg

More water.

20120206-074700.jpg

Another view overlooking the town.

20120206-074708.jpg

A small park that over looks the town with many caches in it.

20120206-074727.jpg

The other side of this park is level with the town.

I have many pictures of caches we found and the people I found them with, I will upload more pictures when I’m back with my computer. More views and examples of caches soon to come!

Lazy Sunday

Yep, it’s one of those days, a cold, rainy, lazy Sunday. Nothing to do, nothing to watch, nothing to read, no where to go…it’s just one of those “blah, why did I get out of bed” kind of days. Unfortunately I do have to get up at some point and get myself ready for another day on the job. I love work and I’m probably one of the few out there that will say I truly do love work! But since this is a lazy Sunday, I’m not looking forward to actually getting up and getting ready for work. I just want to stay all warm snuggled up with my pups, having that lazy day. From time to time, I hate being so busy! But then a day comes along where I have nothing to do and I hate not being busy. I just can’t figure myself out.

At Christmas this year I realized that my mother and grandmother are too much alike! So much so that they bought me two of the same gifts! Not identical, but close. My grandma got me a sock monkey hat to match the scarf she got me last year and got me a firetruck puzzle…my mother bought me a hat too, not sock monkey, but just a plain blue and a firetruck puzzle too! Weird! Nothing like opening similar gifts right after each other. Below is a picture of the firetruck puzzle my grandma got me…this thing took SIX 5+ hour days and 8 different people to complete! It was no easy task! You want a seriously hard puzzle, here it is! Oddly enough, it was able to keep the attention of 3 ADHD kids…though I think it helped that all three of us were working on it together. lol

I got to spend the whole weekend with my favorite boy! : ) Rex, you sure are handsome my man! And in the back you can see my other two boys, Patches (the teddy) and Blizzard (the goat). My man got me the teddy for Christmas last year since he can’t be with me when I’m home and at work, so the teddy comforts me in his place. And the goat was acquired this Christmas from a donation. Usually Blizzard stays at my mans house, but this weekend I stole him since my man was stuck working. He shall be returned to his rightful place this evening.

This little pup below is my mom’s dog, Tasha. She’s more like a cat/rat/flee all in one. lol She’s not much like a dog at all! Loves being on your lap! Claws, bites, and barks to get you to rub her belly. Begs like no other dog I’ve ever seen! And don’t put your plate down, not even on the table and leave it because when you’re not looking this little thing will sneak up and grab it before you know it. She’s got vacuum powers! It’ll be sucked down before you know what happened. From time to time she may sneak into my blog, today seemed like a good time to let that happen.

I’m curious to know if anyone that reads this knows about geocaching. If you don’t, you seriously need to look it up! Especially if you have kids! My cousins, my man, friends…anyone I introduce it to LOVES it! Basically, it’s a world wide treasure hunt! Using GPS devices or your phones. People hide boxes or “logs” and you go find them. Signing up for an account is free. And you’ll be glad when you do. It’s a blast! I can bet you have walked by several geocaches and never knew it. Go to their website www.geocaching.com for full details, watch the videos, read the stories…you will love it! Especially if you are into the outdoors, it’s a lot of fun to add to your bike rides or hikes. Your kids will really love it! My cousins do! Here’s an example from this past week, I kidnapped them and we went geocaching, which is what they pick 99% of the time when I get them. Do yourself a favor and check it out! I haven’t found a person yet that doesn’t like it. If you want more information on it, just e-mail me. I’ve hidden several myself and I even have trackables out there being passed around.

Geocaching will take you to some amazing places, new beauties in your area, parks you probably didn’t know existed, new places along your travels…it’ll be sure to surprise you each time you go. I have many pictures from geocaching adventures that I’ll be sure to post in a blog soon, first I have to round them up and decide which are the best to share. Be watching for it though, it’s sure to come soon.
