Power back on

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Had a good storm yesterday. Started around 3:30 and our power at home went out around 4 pm and stayed off until 4 am.

Got some much needed rain. Lots of limbs down all around.

Went to farmer's market this AM Got some wonderful ripe cantelope from southern Indiana. They are so sweet/...and some stringless green beans. Can't wait to have some for supper tonight. I wimped out of going to the parade with hubby so he went and I did some walking around the famers market. Always another parade next weekend. I really don't enjoy all the waiting and lining up and riding in the parade. Guess I don't like being on center stage with people staring at me.

Worked in the flower beds some. Finally kind of a lazy day to get some things done around home.

    That is a LONG time! Jeez! Glad you made it through.
We had NO rain, but our power went out bc of a down power line. It was out from 7-11 and we were all miserable bc we can't sleep without the sound of a fan.

    Pretty exciting! Will you have your car, baby, in the parade, or will you be on a float, or marching? One of our neighbors took us twice on a vehicle horse drawn where we tossed out candy. I have never had more fun in my adult life than that Enjoy!

Thankful Thursday

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Week's go by pretty quickly it seems. Supposed to get in the 100's here today. Usually we don't see too many days in that heat. Usually in the high 90's during the summer.

Two weeks and my daughter and her boyfriend coming to visit for a long weekend. One of her good friends came down to visit for a week and EJ really got attached to her little girls. Thought it would be the boys...but Kinsley snuggled into the crook of his arm and melted his heart. He wants to be here to help celebrate her 1st birthday. He will be a good daddy someday. Looking forward to spending time with them.

Today we say goodbye to co-worker. She has decided to be a full time MOM. I'm so happy for her. Their only child they can have...I know it was a tough decision...but it's the right one and she won't regret it. They are little for just a short amount of time. Interesting how far we've come...we was the greatest source of stress in my life...the thorn in my side. She was so difficult to work with. She had some major changes in her life, change of attitude and she has been pleasant to work with the last couple of months. In the back of my mind I always wondered when the old co-worker would pop back in and was cautious..but it was a pleasant change. Don't have to be best buddies...just work together. We will miss her.

Again change...been busier at work...wonder how all the changes will effect us? We handled it while co-worker was off for health issues and so we can do it. Pam and I are good friends and we work well together. We sometimes butt heads but we are friends and when we clash one of us brings it up and we laugh...yes we were getting too intense.

Off to make it a great day!

Wonderful Wednesday

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Well here we are at mid week! Co-worker was going to go with me last night but something came up. Really enjoy the time by myself...enjoyed looking through the used book store and came out with some books....but the trade was even as I took some no money spent on that transaction. Enjoy looking through Trader Joe's and finding some healthy foods to take home. Picked up some gluten free bread for co-worker.

Still been busy at work. Time will tell how things go when the other co-worker leaves. She's only been part time...we'll see. Seems like there has been so much change since we've gotten there...

Hoping to get in a noon time walk. Was able to yesterday and I enjoy the break.

Off to make it a great day!

    Love time by myself too. I know you will make it a wonderful Wednesday and so will I.
Wish we had a Traders Joe near us.
Hoping your hubby is staying positive about job hunt. When mine reached the sixties in age he had to take on a job that was 1/3 of his salary. Yep, you read it right. It just prepared us to make ends meet on a lot less. AND God still provided through extra-ordinary ways.

    I understand all of this and more. As for the walking break I answer phones and we get paid a straight 8 hours if we answer the phones while we are at lunch. I hop into the bathroom thought and do wall pushups.. lol.. and a 1 and a 2 and a 3.. lol..

Have a great day ~ Donna

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Well we made it through Monday. It was very busy at work. Boss got his money's worth out of us. Still ended working over. Hope that isn't a sign of what is coming up when co-worker leaves. I was beat when I got home and still had a meeting at 7:30. Made it through it and finally got home around 9:30 or so.

Have hair appointment tonight after work. Since it is a ways away I also get to stop by the used book store and Trader Joe's. Makes for a full night ---too---but enjoy stocking up on some items at Trader Joe's and trading in some books at the used book store. For some reason this whole week is one thing after another.

Off to make it a great day!

    It may be busy, but think of what you are going to accomplish in the span of a week. Also, if you keep busy you won't have the time to overeat and with extra walking in and out of stores you can get some more exercise time in. WooHoo.. a win-win situation. Have a great Tuesday Kathleen ~ Donna
