About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Geocaching




 
   Have you seen this man?  He appears to be searching for something....  Perhaps he lost his keys or a contact lens?  If he's not careful a police man may start to get suspicious...  Actually, this is my husband and he is looking high and low for a geocache.  Have you heard of this new hobby?  Using a GPS unit you plug in coordinates to help you find a "cache".  Sometimes you just sign your name and other times you get a small prize....



   I think he found it!  Actually, he has hidden quite a few himself and found over 500 caches!!


   This is called a "micro cache".


   Now he is signing his name and we can move on to the next one!  Many are hidden in the forest and a few can even be found in the mall!  Perhaps you might like to try it.:-)

Hey Lori,
Tim and I looked for a geocache up in the mountains where him and Timmy are going tomorrow...Nothing. Nada. Zip. But it is a ten mile hike in and it's very secluded so this doesn't shock me. We really need to read up on this more so that Tim could leave a "cache" up there for somebody to find..!
It looks like a lot of fun!
