Random this and that...

First off , it has been quite some time since I last posted.. Time flies by, I did not realize how much time had gone by. (Then I went to post this and realized that there was a draft sititng there that I thought I posted.... so it had not been quite as much time as I had first thougth!) I need to set a date with myself and be here regulary, but then again where is the random in that!

I love to make my kids say "Mom that's so random!" I hear it most from Shanna - and it is not even like I try to it just happens. Take yesterday for example - I was driving down Austin Ave right by the Vancouver Golf Club - for those of you who do not know it - it is a beautiful private "country club" in the middle of the city ( I think Coquitlam is a city?) with beautiful manicured lawns and gardens. As I am passing I notice that just off to the side of one of the fairways there is a HUGE pair of cherry blossom trees - one is white the other vibrant pink.

So in the middle of the conversation about school and friends I interject

"You know one of you should get married in April or early May so that you can have wedding photos taken in front of a beautiful cherry blossom tree"

Conversation stops dead - Shanna pipes up with the

"What ?? Mom' that was totally random"

I smile to myself - it is true - totally random - not planned it just happens! No one is quite sure when odd things will pop into the conversation. I think that it is because my brain is always thinking - seeing - on the other hand likely not totally 100% there in the conversation going on around me (hmm, maybe I have to think about that a little....

Here is a totally random bit of fun - I stumbled upon this while "Blog Hopping" "Blog Hopping" is a allot like pub hopping (from what I hear) you go from one Blog to the next, not quite sure where you will end up and what you will come away with - usually quite fun and always something is learned - except there are not any next morning surprises! (If you read Donna Downey's blog this will not seem quite so random! Poor girl)) I digress.... here is the random bit of fun . . . .

I'm a Chevrolet Corvette!

You're a classic - powerful, athletic, and competitive. You're all about winning the race and getting the job done. While you have a practical everyday side, you get wild when anyone pushes your pedal. You hate to lose, but you hardly ever do.

Take the "SPORTS CAR QUIZ"

I can honestly say that I have never thought of myself as a Corvette! For the most part I do not even like the look of the car, the front end is too long! However - it is a classic - and it would be fun to drive (under control and with-in the speed limits of course!) The description is not so me, but hey it was a random little thing that took all of 1 minute to complete! (And now there is a photo of a hot car on my blog.... how random is that!)

Have a great Sunday - it actually looks like it might be nice!

Oooh...I'm stealing this quiz. And yes, I agree with Shanna. You are definitely the queen of random. ;-) But that's why we love you!
