Hump Day Highlights (Such As They Are)

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Ahhh...Hump Day. The middle of the week. The start of the downward slide to the weekend. Mine's been quiet. So here are the highlights/low lights of my Hump Day.

They issued a air quality warning for Las Vegas. We have smoke in the valley from the wildfire. Yesterday it was 15% contained, today it's only 10% contained. We're head the wrong way! As I drove home last night, the sun disappeared the closer I got. The huge smoke plume was right over our side of town. It was an eerie peach/orange color everywhere. You could smell the smoke, even in the house. My eyes got gummy, my sinuses were acting up. And today is worse. But I'll have to deal with it. At least I'm safe here in the valley and still in my home. Some aren't, the ones that live on the mountain. Keep them and the fire fighters in your thoughts and prayers please. emoticon

I decide to get up off my butt at home and pop my Your Shape Fitness 2012 into the old Xbox. I did like 60 mins or so of some strength work, some toning, and some yoga. I did feel too bad afterwards. But today...oh boy! I can feel it in my legs and butt! If I set too long I'm all stiff and creaky when I get up. I did go down to the gym and do 60 mins on the treadmill, hoping to loosen up a bit. But the climb back up two flights of stairs was rough. emoticon

Eating was OK yesterday. I was within (mid range) my calorie range. And so far today it's good. Even with the ice cream bar I had after my workout (I skipped my planned snack of frozen banana slices dipped in dark chocolate and a banana). The Safety Committee at work was handing out FREE ice cream...how could I skip THAT?! emoticon

The Xbox game (Defiance) I've been debating about getting (it's like $60!) has gone on sale at Gamestop for $29! emoticon Now I have to decide if I REALLY want it. It's not had to want it when I can't afford it, but now that it's so cheap I'm having second thoughts. I'll have to check my money levels before buying it. emoticon

I have NO idea what we're having for dinner. I'll decide when I get home. Chicken maybe? We had pork loin chops last night and pork roast the night before that. So I'm think chicken or something with ground beef. emoticon

OK..that's my Hump Day. How did yours go? Today we have a funny and some inspiration! Onward to Friday and the weekend! emoticon

    The western pasttime - watching the fires. Not a happy thing to do or see.

    Ah... Mine was busy. Made arrangements to keep the car, and when I do, I stack appointments and visits DEEP! Was gone from 9:00 to 4:30. Went to lunch with my friend Donna who just lost her husband. She insisted on driving since the air conditioning is out in our car. The problem? She's 83! I was praying all the way to the restaurant and back!

    We live with smoke all summer. The guy behind us has one of those fire pit things and has it going all the time. Our swamp cooler sucks that smoke up like crazy. The whole house smells all the time. And it's hard to sleep because it's right outside our bedroom window. But what can we do? It's not illegal...

    Hugs, Calen~
