Wacky Wednesday

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Made it through the day at work alone. Co worker was ill. Wasn't crazy busy but steady. Made time to walk at lunch time. Gorgeous weather....around 74...a little overcast. The birds were out in full force yesterday. Lots of wild canaries. The grasses and wild flowers on the trail are starting to dry up. Lots of ducks on the pond the babies are about grown up now.

Been seeing deer in the back yard most mornings now. The fawns are also growning quickly.

I did real good staying within calorie fact a little low. Wonder if it was because co-worker wasn't there to tell me her woes and maybe just being by myself I could stay on track better.

Plan to get to Curves and see if Mom wants to go tonight. She sounds OK on the phone this week.

Off to make it a great day!

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Made it through working the Milk Shake Booth at the Miami County Fair last night for 4 hours. Kept smelling all the fair food and seeing it as people walked by and thinking...boy that would taste good...after our shift hubby and I walked around some but he doesn't eat fair food and I opted to just go home without eating anything but the free milkshake after our shift.

I was beat when I got home so instead of eating just decided to get ready for bed and read for awhile. I wasn't hungry anyway why eat.

Knees really feeling it this AM and had trouble with cramps for awhile last night. Should have taken a bath to relax them I guess.

Off to make it a great day!

    Our fair is going on right now too right across the street from me. I smell all of the food and would love to have a blooming onion.. lol. but I'm not going to pay $7 to get in and $7 for the onion.. way to much. So I'll stay at home. I'm on vaca this week and haven't been doing much except relaxing. Tonight the grands will be here. Have a great Tuesday Kathleen. So proud of you for taking a stand against fair food. Donna

    I could never make it through a fair without eating. The scent in the air is so amazing. I can hardly walk the perimenters of our county fair any longer. Knees might be sore, but I think you soared through this!

Monday Morning

Monday, August 13, 2012

Here we are at Monday again. Don't know where the weekends go - they just fly by.... Mom seemed to enjoy baby shower yesterday. We didn't get home until 3 pm. Know it made for a long day for Mom and she was tired. Co-worker put together the gift and we all three chipped in. She loves to shop and she outdid herself and even purchased their 3 year old a present to open when she gets home. Good choice to let her shop and put it together. It has been good for co-worker to meet more people in the church and network with people. Good to see her making friendships and becoming acqainted and getting to know people and people getting to know her.

Leaving work early today to work in the Farm Bureau booth at the fair for work. Guess we are shutting down the office at 3:30 to go. Always fun to work in the milk shake booth. Lots of work...but fun.

Wonder what this week will bring?

Off to make it a great day!

    We love you, Kathleen, (that is anyone that knows you and I). I just want to say, you hold it together so well and I hope when you slip a notch, others will be there to lift you up! God bless, as always, because you ROCK!

Made it through the parade. Even came home and took a nap. Woke up early with a headache and the nap felt good. 45th club celebration went well.

Off to Praise Team soon and then minister's wife baby shower afterwards....

Off to Praise the Lord!

Saturday Musings!

Saturday, August 11, 2012

SparkCoach has me thinking more and reflecting on the prior day. I am allowing stress from work get to me...what's new?

Woke up early with a headache so decided to make some good use of my time.

Have an early parade to go to....then 45th club anniversary to go to this evening.

Tomorrow have Praise Team and afterwards have baby shower at church for minister's wife. Co-worker is buying gift and Mom and I are sharing the costs.

Dr appt with Mom went OK yesterday according to hubby. Was reading info from Cleveland Clinic on Alzheimers and exercise is a key ingredient to slow down the process. Need to focus on getting her back to Curves. She has injuries at times but it's usually my schedule that prevents us from going at times. It is good for both of us.

Helping out with good friend's daughter's wedding Labor Day Saturday and then heading to Missouri to spend a few days with our BFF's. The time away will do us good. Hubby already ready to go...asking if I really have to help out with wedding. But told them I would help out a long time ago and want to honor my words.

Off to make it a great day!

    Lot of great plans this weekend, busy, and nice! It can be challenging at times to help with our folks, because our lives get so busy, and they are slow moving. But you are doing a beautiful thing by making this one of your ministries. emoticon
