Happy Friday!

Friday, September 14, 2012

Today is not a usual day for me. Hubby gone for a one day business trip to Chicago and will be back late. He and some colleagues are going to the International Machine Tool Show 2012.

Took my daughter to school. Came home have breakfast.

4 oz Activia Low Fat Vanilla Yogurt
1 extra small banana
1 cup of Soy Milk
1 cup of Kashi Strawberry Fields

Listen to Joseph Prince sermon. Reply some emails. Went for my 30 minute late morning walk. Time for lunch.

284 grams Kahiki Chicken Fried Rice (frozen entree)

Watched two episodes HK TVB drama. In the midst of watching, Betty (my neighbor) brought some home grown tomatoes over. Chat for a little bit with her. Pretty soon it was time to pick up my daughter from school. She is glad she has no homework today.

My daughter is very excited about attending her first sleepover today. I, on the other hand, was experiencing Parent Separation Anxiety! I helped her packed a bag. She was all ready to go at 4:00pm. The invitation card says 5:30pm. I had to tell her to be patient as it is not time yet to go. Watched another episode with my daughter by my side.

After dropping her off, I decided to go to Peak Sports Club. Did 30 minutes on treadmill. On the way home, I found another Vietnamese Restaurant I have not tried. I had Grilled Salmon Vermicelli. It was delicious. Next time I get it, I will take a picture. For those of you who are not familiar with Vietnamese food. Vermicelli is an angel-hair noodle (rice noodles) served with your choice of grilled pork, beef, chicken, shrimp, fish or tofu on a bed of shredded lettuce, fresh herbs, bean sprouts, cucumber, topped with crushed roasted peanuts and served with their classic Vietnamese Vinegar Sauce.

While waiting for my hubby's return, watched another episode.

High today is 74F and sunny. It is a beautiful day!

That was my day. How was yours?

  Hi........It sounds like you had a great day. Mine was very busy.........My husband and I drove to a city about 40 miles away to shop for a "New Baby" gift and some other items. On the way home, we stopped at a Garage Sale and found a beautiful high chair and a (1-wear only) Christmas dress for our 4-month old Grand-daughter. We were very happy with our finds!!! When we arrived home, our youngest son called and decided to come over for supper. Then I did some wash and now I am Sparking. It's almost time for bed, as I am tired. emoticon
Have a great Sunday.

    Today, watched some anime while exercising. Read a book. Then watched couple of movies in a movie channel (in movie #2, I fell asleep and when I woke up, Bruce already turned into Batman, missed his training). Squeezed in some jump rope before went out for grocery shopping. More jump rope before shower and dinner. And now, updating some things in SP while collecting SP points and trying to relax my aching legs from all those jump rope (total 15-min).

So, that's my update for today, hehe.

High of 65F

Thursday, September 13, 2012

The weather is amazing! Yesterday high of 90F and today high of 65F! I prefer 60s or 70s. emoticon

Went for my 30 minute walk this morning with my neighbor, Betty. Pass birthday gift to Alice, my other neighbor and visit for a bit.

It started to rain before school is done for the day.

Hubby had a doctor's appointment this afternoon. It is a follow-up on the recent blood test results. The doctor is happy with the improvements he has made since the last visit. The only area he still has to work on is his cholesterol.

My daughter has been invited to a sleepover party tomorrow. It is her best friend, Alexandria's birthday. This is going to be her first invitation that we said yes. I am still not used to the idea of my baby going to spend the night at someone else house.

After the doctor's office, we went to Target to get her sleeping bag, gift card, birthday card, a couple of movies, etc. Had to stop by CVS pharmacy and Vietnamese Restaurant.

It is still raining here. I do not mind the rain if I am staying indoors but I guess I should not complain. Hope everyone is having a fabulous day!

  It sounds like you had a great day. I love the cooler temps too. My husband also has high cholesterol and I heard from a Registered Dietician that a product called Cholesteroff made by Nature Made (available at Walmart) works well and there aren't any side effects. It might be worth asking your Doctor about it.
Have a great weekend.

High of 90F

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Went for 30 min walk in the morning before it gets hot. We are back on 90F today!

We noticed that today Charlie's wing looked better. I told my hubby and daughter it is God's work!

Took our daughter to Peak Sports Club for her Tae Kwon Do class. I went on treadmill for 30 minutes.

I wonder if it has something to do with the weather or I may have ate something that does not agree with me. I have an upset stomach all day! Praise the Lord! I am feeling better now. Just feel very tired. Still have to clean up the kitchen and shower before I can go to bed. Take care and have a great evening!

  I hope that you are feeling better soon. Take care of yourself. It is raining here right now and I think that you are probably getting rain too as it is a wide front. I love the cool and the sound of the rain.......
Have a good day. emoticon

    Great effort of taking care of Charlie! How do you know it's a male or female, hehe. Maybe I can borrow your daughter for our birds here, we have lots of sparrows making nests at the ceiling outdoor :D

Went for my 30 minute walk this morning. As promised, here are the pictures of morning glory that my daughter is so proud of.

Also, here are pictures of Charlie (dove we rescued on September 1, 2012.) I get the feeling when we talk to her, she is listening.

I had lunch with two of my girlfriends, Sharon and Lilian at the Vietnamese Restaurant. It was nice to catch up with friends.

Took my daughter to Peak Sports Club for her Tae Kwon Do class. I went on the treadmill for 30 minutes. After that, I did not feel well. Thank God, I managed to drive home!

Got to go for now to have Chicken Noodle Soup. Hope everyone have had a great day!

  We have Morning Glories too and love them. I am sure that Charlie is very grateful for the wonderful care you are giving him. Friends of ours have raised a Dove (from an egg) and have had her for 17 years. She goes everywhere with them and sits on their shoulders.
Have a great day......... emoticon

Martin Park Pictures

Monday, September 10, 2012

I try to make others smile or laugh even though I am not really happy. Just like yesterday, I posted a joke and someone interpret it as though I am the man in that joke. *sigh*

I am really very tired today. I went for a 30 minute morning walk with my friend, Patricia and her cute little dog, Tinker Bell. We spent another hour visiting.

In the evening, we took our daughter to Martin Park, Loves Park, IL. I did another 30 minute walk there. Took some pictures of Martin Park. It is located next to the Rock River.

Pic 1 - Can you see the Rock River?

Pic 2

Pic 3 - This is where I usually start my walk

    I wish I can go to park like that, gorgeous and shady :D

By the way, I just read your joke about the guy making cuckoo sound, that's so funny! Dunno why other thought it was you as the guy, I guess they probably not used to you posting jokes in your blogs.

  I have found that there are some people who are just completely lacking in a sense of humor. Please don't let it bother you. Maybe she only read it once and didn't really understand. I enjoy your sense of humor and appreciate you for making my days brighter.

PS.........I forgot to comment on how beautiful the park is that you walk in. I have a wonderful park about 7 miles south of us and it is perfect for walking. I also walk through our woods with our 2 dogs. They love it when one or both of us let them come along as they are not allowed to go into the woods alone.

    Sometimes people just read quick and miss things. It seems with the internet and e-mails, so many people don't read thoroughly before answering. Many times I'll have to write back asking them to answer ALL the questions.

Love the photos.
