Fabulous Wednesday

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Just co-worker and I today. Part-timer off today. Thursday I'm by myself.

Worked in the yard a little last night. Friend had mailed me fern startings last fall and I came across them in the garage and they were starting to grow and since we've had rain thought it would be a good time to get them in the ground. My poppies are blooming and my iris are still going strong. Flowers are so pretty this spring. A Lilac tree that my son brought home as a stick in kindergarten is just loaded with blooms this year. I am enjoying all the beauty this spring. Everywhere I look it seems God is blessing me with beauty. I wish they lasted longer. My Lily of the Valley smell so sweet...ahhh! My peonies...all but on bush have buds on them getting ready to bloom...

Oh yah how could I foget...I was determined not to drink Mt Dew yesterday...and I didn't. Just started on that habit at work...never drank it before but liked the sweet taste in the afternoon. Just drank water all day like I used to do. Getting back on track.

Off to make it a great day...still gotta pick up a mother's day card for mom and get it in the mail. She enjoys getting cards.

    Your yard sounds as lovely as you do! I've got ferns and lilacs in my yard and just love to step outside and say hello to them. (Yep, I talk to all plants) Used to have a green thumb too. Anything that requires grat sunshine doesn't happen here.

You didn't do the Dew? My hubby drank at least 4 of them yesterday. Hmmmm. Makes me want to ask, "Are you smarter than a fifth grader?"

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

Woke up a couple times last night but overall seemed to sleep better. Rained some...maybe that helped?

Got some lunch veggies cut up and prepackaged. Sometimes hard in the AM to get it all together quickly

Planning to take Mom to Curves after work again today. Planning to get in three workouts this week after work.

Lunchtime walk will depend on the weather. Guess I could walk indoors at a store. Need to get Mom a Mother's Day Card to send to her. She enjoys mail.

Recently started drinking small bottle of Mt Dew at work in the afternoons. Decided I needed to cut that yesterday after they bought a bunch more...went without one ...and you know I did survive quite nicely. Back to taking a piece of fruit for the morning and afternoon snack.

Off to making it a great day!

    You are right. It will be a terrific Tuesday. I am glad you are spending time with your Mom. Also thanks for reminding me I need to leave early today to pick up cards for Mother's Day.

May you have a blessed day and Good Luck reaching Your Goals!!

    I chuckled at that last line about Mountain Dew. It seems to be a man's drink that they claim is full of energy. Just the diet Dew has 50 grams of sodium in it though. My DH was buying the regular Dew and he said it made his heart pound. I know when I did work and offer to purchase snacks and what not for men, they would always ask me to buy Mountain Dew regular.

Glad I can always count on you to make a Tuesday full of gratitude!

Took a nice ride in Baby yesterday. Wonderful driving through the countryside. Came home and decided to take Mom for a ride too! Spent about 2 hours riding through the countryside with the top down. Mom really enjoys that. She said her neck will be sore from turning right to left all the time to see everything. Dad and she used to take drives a lot and know that she misses it a lot.

Slower week! Hoping to get Mom to Curves 2-3 times this week.

Off to make it a great week!

Co-worker's son fell down 12 steps and cracked his head open. Ended up with 7 staples. Oh youth...sometimes they try and test us until they get their act together....

My car's name is Thundercleese, lol, he's a big gray Tahoe.

Shame, about your co-worker's son. Hope he's okay, sounds like it could have been terrible and he got away easy!

    The names I give to my car are not really suitable for this site......


emoticon (at least *now* I can laugh as the car is now somewhat stable.....)

Glad you had a wonderful time with your mom!

    What a lovely day you had! We live in the country but haven't had the wonderful countryside drives we used to. My car is Susie. It is refreshing to see how you add Mom to your days activities. Back to the grind today?

Garage sale has been going well. Today is the last day. Hubby has run it and doing a very fine job. I was so tired today and stayed in bed until 7:30 and now can't seem to get moving this AM. Seems like if I don't get right up and exericise I have trouble getting moving the rest of the day!
