Anticipation (And What I Do For A Silly Blog Post)

Ice Cream I love it.

Anticipation and Loving Ice Cream
I love ice cream but seldom allow myself to have it. I am trying to lose weight and somehow that just doesn’t happen eating this particular dish. I wish I could eat as much of it as I wanted to.
Danny and I picked up this quart size box at the little store down the road. A country store.

I also picked up a few other things I seldom EVER get. Pizza and Microwavable meal for me.

My almost empty freezer. You should see the big one. It has ICE and that's about it.

See the ice machine. It is still broken. I went to find some ice Cube trays. We haven’t needed them for almost 9 years.
I found one lone ice cube tray.
Have you tried getting ice cubes of of those lately. Even Danny had trouble.

I don’t know if you can tell, but that tray is TINY. As in A kids tiny playset.

Another look.

I can’t get them to post side by side. I need to look it up. There is probably a tutorial by wordpress just for that.

It took me forever just to get the ice cream dished up.
First off. I knew I was going to POST about it. Why not? Doesn’t everyone post pictures about ice cream? It is amazing what we bloggers do nowadays.

One last look. I never bothered to put water in it.

I just can’t get the pictures and wording right.

I choose the smaller of the 2. Why? Because it is a good sized bowl. I don’t need the ice cream. |
OK, What was the REAL REASON?
Why did I choose the smaller one?

I knew my teeth could NOT handle the extreme cold very well.
Otherwise I would be still be eating it.

If I was by myself , I would have eaten it right out of the carton.  Shame on me.

Sorry about the blurriness. My hands often shake any more.
I am also going to tell the rest of the ice cream story.

Many of you out there have been blogging for years. You know how long it takes to do a simple post. Will, I am learning. It takes time and patience.

A good camera would be wonderful. A camera that just worked would be good.
The first red camera (Guess who loves RED?) Works. Except for one tiny tiny problem.

The LCD light burned out 2 years ago.
So I can take pictures. I just can’t see what I am taking pictures of . So I take multiple shots. Of many angles. Every once in awhile I will manually change the setting. They are never exactly right. It is set for distances. Most of the pictures I take are closer up ones.

My Old Nikon My year old BROKEN Camera Both look pretty bad now. I kept having to pry the lens open.  I wore the new one out.

It froze up.

Nothing.

Almost ready. Will it work or freeze up again?

Don't forget the ice cream.
Don’t forget the ice cream.

The ice cream was sitting out through all of this.
I grabbed my smart phone. I couldn’t get it to work. It was a well used phone and camera before a friend sent it to me almost 2 years ago . I use it for everything but a phone. Or I was using it. Poor thing. Worn out.
I have taken thousands and thousands of pictures on all of these cameras.

Ice cream

I hadn’t had a bite of ice cream. I waited for the smartphone to start up again. While waiting on it, I went to grab my old camera.
And started taking pictures. Not seeing anything I was taking a picture of. That is really not much fun.
There is something wrong with me…… Using a camera I can’t see out of to take pictures of another camera(Smartphone) that isn’t working right.
Yep, it is called A BLOGGERS LIFE in  2005.
So this post is about a lady needing to lose weight ,who is fixing herself a bowl of ice cream as she is taking pictures with cameras that don’t work right. Then she is posting them here for all of you to read.
Crazy.
Yes.

Our broken ice machine

So while I was getting the ice cream ready. While I was taking pictures of it all, I was also taking pictures of the broken ice machine.
Ice from the shop at work.

I was also taking pictures of a dirty, needing to be cleaned…..I still don’t have the foggiest idea what was spilled there …..EXCEPT for one thing…..I didn’t spill it or I would have at least cleaned up the mess.
Since you have already seen this you might as well see this:

A refrigerator. SO WHAT?
A refrigerator. SO WHAT?

It is a picture of my refrigerator AFTER I took down my family pics. Except for the one taped to it.
The rest of the refrig is bare.
I HATE A WHITE BARE REFRIG.
I started to clean it when Danny pulled it out to look at the back of it. So now it is pulled out…..NAKED…Needs to be clean but I got sick ….Refrigerator that you all can see.
I have just decided I am BORED . Tired but I tried to lay down. That WAS a MISTAKE.
Brain is in high gear. Body is not.

Ice cream time

So did I enjoy the ice cream?
You take a guess.

It's so cold.  Yep, It was worth it.

Are you singing a certain song?
If my internet wasn’t so slow…I would even post the song here.
did the ice cream improve on the day. For the moment.
The following is the view I am seeing today, sitting in my recliner in the enclosed porch.

  1. guess it was just a typo – said something about a Blogger’s Life in 2005 and maybe I was thinking your internet was slow back then but not now – so sorry

  2. so was this a repost? and I think I’ve answered my question I asked…

    1. No. It wasn’t a re-post.

    Hi Sarah 🙂

    I just now saw your comment on my blog and stopped by to say hello. This post was really funny! Those are the best kind you know 😉

    I hope you’re enjoying your Sunday!

    1. Hi Rue, You just made me smile. Not just your message but when I saw your name. I also realized just how long it has been since I was last there. I have been taking Blogging classes the last month and enjoying them…But they have kept me busy. Too busy to really visit the blogs I like. How are you? Here’s hoping you had a great weekend.
      I agree with you.This post was such fun for me to do. An it was anticipation. I hadn’t had any ice cream in a long time. It was also oh so cold.
      And my Sunday was quiet until Danny came home. And then a good night after that.
      Hugs Sarah

    These are (in my humble opinion) the best of blogs…the rambling ones that are written when we are feeling a little ‘crazy’. Just stuff about life. It was wonderful to read, it is great that you are feeling better and can laugh at your broken camera and ice maker, and sit and remark upon the joys of ice cream and relaxation! Have a fabulous day! You’ve earned it! 😀

    1. This is the one post of yours I saw com in and then I it got lost with all the rest. I wanted to answer it then and there. As it turned out ….I should have…..
      I am so glad you like my ramblings. I feel the same way . I really wish more people would be more honest and open. Not as polished. Hugs.

    Sarah you have me LMAO!
    photos side by side – on a computer set one for left & the other for right & sometimes you have to move them up!
    Oh and now I want ice cream!
    Talked hubby into walking the strip tomorrow & looking in the shops & at the end is an ice cream shop!

    1. I would laugh also. I can get them left , right and centered. I just have trouble getting them to move up or down. LOL. It is little things like that which are so easy for everyone else are the motor skills /brain ? that I now seem stuck with. You should have been around about 5 years ago when I was trying to get the < and 3 into <3. I might get it right 1 out of 2o tries. Every once in awhile I still have trouble.
      Wanting ice cream here again as well. I am surprise I haven't gone for seconds.
      Enjoy your walk and ice cream run tomorrow.
      We need to grocery shopping. I dread it. It is always hard. We go to Walmart which Danny hates and I am not a fan of. He will postpone it as long as he can…..Then leave me alone for however long it takes him to get what he wants to get. Then I hear, "I'm tired…We need to hurry". What does he think I have been doing? He will take forever choosing his lunch meat and cheese.
      Grocery shopping is never easy. This past year: walking and shopping don't mix well.
      I worry.

  6. I LOVED THIS! So glad you FINALLY got to enjoy your ice cream!! <3

    1. I am so glad you liked it. I was afraid that it was too much of nothing. Bad photos ….
      Love you, I would share it with you.
      Hugs I’ve been thinking about you since I read your earlier post. <3

      1. I love random posts 🙂 They’re fun-especially followed with pics! Thanks. I’m just trying to stay as peaceful as possible and not worry myself into a hole. *Now I really want some ice cream! :D*

        1. I’m wanting to eat it all. I am almost glad the cold hurts my teeth sometimes. More of an irritation than anything.
          I am frustration. Trying to work on Our Neck Of The Woods Blog so I can separate the 2 and the internet is slow and the computer is making me want to toss it across the room. I could use the desk top….It would be faster…but I can’t sit there and be comfortable just yet. SO GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
          I am also tired of not having a decent camera.
          I don’t even need a DSLR…I just want a point and shoot that will take a good picture.
          Sorry…RANT OVER
