Sparkling Sunday

Sunday, June 05, 2011

Son and daugbter in law drove up and we went to Strawberry Festival. Walked the levy for two hours. It was hot out but nice and enjoyed our time together. Had a nice dinner too!

Surviving not having air conditioning trying not to complain but sometimes it gets pretty hot recently...then it rains and cools us off.

After church hubby taking mom to grocery then we may go look for flowers for my urns.

Strawberry festival this weekend. Blew it and ate three strawberry doughnuts between yesterday and today. Boy are they good.

Hubby off to be in the parade. I opted to stay home. Just felt like some down time. Not sure if son and daughter in law are coming up for festival. Supposed to be a hot one today.

Finally Friday

Friday, June 03, 2011

Made it to Friday,,,Yesterday co-worker ill after tests so had a good day at work. Gotta work on not letting it eat at me...and do my best at my job.

Strawberry Festival this weekend, Tonight Community Night with a Swing Band downtown. They are always fun.

Hubby booked his flight to Florida to spend Father's Day with daughter. Taking him to NASCAR race. He is looking forward to it.

Still no air conditioner and looks like will be several more weeks. Some days the weather is good and some it is so hot. How did I ever survive as a kid?

    Hope you were able to enjoy the Strawberry Festival and Community Night. I am sure DH will enjoy his trip to Florida and the time spent with DD. Hoping the weather stays a bit cooler for you.

    FL sounds great for DH. One day we will move there to be with my daughters. Weekend sounds like a great deal of fun. Enjoy! I remember a lot snowier weather in the winter when I was a kid. Less adventuresome as an adult. I guess we didn't know better.

Terrific Thursday

Thursday, June 02, 2011

Back to sleeping good. Didn't want to get up this AM. Feeling stress from co-worker. She has been on a roll recently.

Took a nice ride last night. It is relaxing!

Hubby getting some projects done around the house.

Better get moving....

Reflecting Wednesday

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

Hubby got home around 9:30 last night. Picked him up at mom's. He drove her vehicle as she never uses it and it was good to have it out on the road.

Next project is air conditioner. It didn't start up this year and we had people out and we can spend a lot to fix it for whatever time it will work or get a new system and as it's 25 years old...looking at that. Hasn't been too bad but recently it finally got warm/hot (92 yesterday) getting harder to sleep comfortably at night. Hopefully hubby can get back on that project now.

Spend some of weekend reading and reflecting on positive attitudes and sermon Sunday talked about trials in our lives used to grow us. So reflected on co-worker and mom not allowing them to set my mood for the day. Start out positive and then they come dragging in to work irritable and moody and it sets me on edge or they try to dump a mess into my lap etc. Or Mom...always trying to please her and she has a critical spirit and know that we take excellent care of her and that is just the way she is.

After all these years I still want to please everyone and have everyone happy around me. So consequently I go around griping and complaining about them. Want to change that in my life but didn't do well yesterday. You could tell when co-worker came in it was not going to be a good day. But boss stopped by and she perked right up and was happy and tried to get boss to dump her mess in my lap. He had second thoughts and let her deal with it. What a surprise!

Hubby's contract done and he is out of work. We'll see if they get another contract or what happens. Life is full of challenges. Although now he has time to get some projects done around here and be at his mom's beck and call.

God always takes care of us and at this stage of life always trusting Him to guide us on this journey.

So it's a new day and we will once again face the day with hope and positive attitude. Hoping to walk during lunch hour some if the weather permits.

    Glad your DH is home safely. Hope he is able to get you air conditioner working so that you can get some restful and relaxing sleep. Praying for you DH that another contract comes his way...
