Chilly out

Sunday, October 13, 2013

Wow, what a difference one day can make, it was beautiful yesterday afternoon, now today I had to wear my jacket and I was still cool.

Our nephew is out planting winter wheat and my husband is mowing the lawn, hopefully for the last time this year, but it's hard to tell.

Had some guy run the stop sign and get onto the road I was walking on today, and race right past me. I wish I'd gotten his license plate number, but the cops wouldn't do anything anyways.

My soon to be nephew was nearly mugged in Milwaukee when he stopped for gas and a guy came up behind him, put a gun in his back and demanded his money and keys. The nephew kept looking straight ahead and noticed the guys arms go up for a moment and that's when he brought his head back, hit the guy in the face with the back of his head, knocking him down, then went over and was kicking him hard in the head. He said he saw something fly from the guys hands when he hit him and the guy fell.

He then decided the best thing to do would be to get in the car and take off..which he did. The nephew is going to school to be a heart surgeon, and was heading to his job at the hospital when it happened. He said even if he'd called the cops, they wouldn't do anything.

What do cops do anymore, I wonder that. No coming to deer/car accidents, no coming to accidents under a certain amount of damage, and not coming to help someone like that? Really?

Sometimes it makes you wonder what some people are being paid for.

Anyway, have a great week, and don't forget that smile! emoticon

    Cops are dealing with social issues as well as criminal issues. We deal with people threatening to kill themselves. People driving drunk or high, people who have mental illness and are causing a public disturbance. These issues along with neighbor problems, child custody issues, civil matters, barking dogs, 911 calls from cell phones that are not track able.

Your nephew should have called the police, at least it would have been recorded. The reason they usually don't respond to car vs deer accidents if because most insurance companies don't require it. The damages are covered under comprehensive coverage. A reportable accident in the State of Wisconsin is anything over $1000 damage, injury, or public property damaged.

The police are doing their jobs.

Rains and more

Saturday, October 12, 2013

Heading out for my walk again, I forgot to add the bit of walking I did last night, but that was grocery shopping so I really don't add that.

I woke up around 7 am today and had the worse pain in my stomach/back, just all over and when I got up and walked around it finally went away. I think I may have been sleeping in a weird position and that's what caused it. I feel fine now, but that didn't help me sleep at all.

I'm hoping the rain holds off until I get back from my walk, it's been so beautiful out this year, that I find it hard to believe it's going to rain. Ok, so we had an overflow of rain at the beginning, but since then, it's been beautiful out.

I hope you all seek something to grasp onto and hold tight during this health journey, and never let it go. Remember, you don't need to please anyone but yourself!

This was one of our last years pumpkins..a candlelabra with a spider web in the lower left side. I tried to open up the area where the "flames" were. I love making pumpkins like this.

I love reading the Chats I've been doing and having people actually say that they're enjoying them. There are times I do things and I just don't think anyone's reading them, but when I see something like that where someone is telling me I've helped, or am helping, it gives me the biggest smile in the world!

Thank you, everyone, for the smiles through the past 8 months, I'm so grateful and blessed to have friends like you.

Have a beautiful day! emoticon


Sore muscle for some reason.

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Got up this morning and my upper thighs hurt, not sure why, I haven't really changed my exercise and I wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary yesterday, oh well, it's hard to tell. Just unsure if I want to take my walk, but I know I will. Won't have many warm days left soon, so I'll get out there while I can.

I know this morning I'll warm up good so I can maybe get rid of that pain, hopefully. Had my breakfast, so am heading out now, everyone have a wonderful day. emoticon


Another beautiful day.

Yep, sitting here in Wisconsin, the sun is shining and it's 72 degrees out, what more could one ask for, hmm? It's been pretty nice the last couple of days, and I'm loving it.

Watched Supernatural tonight, I love that show, I think it's one of my favorite and has been for 8 seasons. I wish I could get cable and watch An American Horror Story (think that's what it's called), I watched the first two seasons and the new one starts tonight. Darn.

Anyway, having brats on the grill tonight, maybe the last time this year, and this weekend...guess what???? NOTHING GOING ON, I MAY GET TO REST!!

It's been so busy since May 1 this year, every weekend just about is taken up by something, but it's going fast. I wish time would slow down so we could enjoy it more.

Have a wonderful day, everyone, and don't forget that beautiful smile! emoticon
