Happy Sunday -- only 6 more days .. less than 10,000 minutes ... scared, anxious, and excited!

Sunday, June 24, 2018

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...

OH MY GOODNESS ... it was a day !!! A wonderful day .. but a day !!! We finally got home around 6 and I was exhausted .. I told hubby that I think I'm going to put my feet in water and they are going to go SSSSSSSSSSSSSSS I made the dumb move again, by putting an ointment on my feet in the morning, and that ointment got warmer and warmer as my feet warmed up the point of uncomfortable burning .. I've done that before, but evidentally forgot .. lol .. but to put up with alittle uncomfortableness for a fun day .... Oh my goodness ..

I decided to set up a folder on my computer for "outtings" .. for my pictures . I would like to start scrapbooking my / our excursions ... but we'll see ..

So -- we started with a blue sky and fresh air .. at the Circus World Museum .. and I got some really neat pictures .. and fun pictures .. :) so we'll go on a picture tour .. I'm a member of a page called shutterbugs ... and last week's challenge was antiques .. I think I can submit to that challenge today .. :) (you can submit to earlier challenges) . :)

So ... here's the tour !!!!

Welcome to the Circus World Museum .. Baraboo Wisconsin ..

Sometimes they need to get the monkey's out for fresh air .. lol

A look into the funny mirror ..

This one I just think turned out cool .. :) with the wagons in the background, and the wagon that the mirror is on ..

We went to the Tent show .. and hubby liked watching the unicycler .. He found this at the playground, and decided to show off .. (even though it's connected to the ground .. lol but looks impressive .. huh ?? lol)

Sally's always the clown !!!!

Thought this was just pretty, since 4th of July is coming up ...

I got alot more, but my blog would go on and on and on ..

We spent about 2 hours there, just walking the grounds, and enjoying the sites .. They did have elephant rides, and pony rides, and a tiger show .. more to the line of talking about the tigers, and their habitats, and talking about background of the tigers they had .. Yea -- there were some tricks, but the crowd was big, and there was nothing but standing room only .. sooo we saw and we took pictures and we kept going ...

It's interesting if you are really a buff of circuses, because they go into detail of the major players in the circus .. and the costumes are on display .. Yes -- it's a very nice place, but not sure I would have gone without it being free ..

But the wagons were beautiful !!!! and I got pictures of the wagons .. and they were gorgeous .. I think they would have been so majestic coming down the street in the parades ..

From plain and simple ...

To massive overkill ..

From there we went to the casino in the Wisconsin Dells .. we had lunch .. Their special .. meatball subs .. Well -- after 2 bites and getting nothing but bread, (which was good, but I was just not wanting bread) ... I took the 4 meatballs out .. the sauce that was with them, was good, and the cheese was good .. I just didn't feel like having bread .. so I put that on the side, and hubby finished my bun ..

They had "chippers" .. homemade tater chips .. the first one was pretty chewy, but I told hubby that it was chewy because they had it setting on the sandwich, so it was more re-steamed .. but when I had some of the other ones they were pretty good, and they crunched .. But he tried, and he wasn't enjoying them .. so while he stole my bun, with spaghetti sauce, I took his chippers .. lol ..

He offered that we stay and play ..and I said that would be fine .. and we thought we would play for about an hour, and then go and play some miniature golf .. I was pretty pooped by this time, and well -- by the time I looked at my watch; and then found him .. it was almost 4:30ish ... sooo we bypassed the golf .. That was okay .. cuz I was getting pooped ..

And we still wanted to make an appearance at the Pewaukee Beach party .. Well -- we got there just in time for the 2nd half of the waterski show .. We lucked out, and there was a close parking spot ..

We bought ourselves a beer to share, and (well -- I got a couple of sips .. lol) .. and watched the 2nd half of the water ski show .. :)

How's that for tranquil .. We stood on the pier, and while we got a ride every time the wakes of the speedboats came by; because it's a loose float pier .. lol ...

Got a new favorite picture for happy hubby !!!!

After the show, we came home .. We both had full day and fresh air .. I know I was pooped, but purposely worked hard to keep myself awake until 9ish .. I did have myself an ice cream sundae, with just ice cream, and caramel syrup .. and it hit the spot !!!!

I ended up with over 10000 steps .. :)

and boy my feet felt it .. but I was sooo happy, and soooo content .. all the ouchies were off to the side .. I didn't care about the ouchies .. :)

Today .. we are going to Greekfest .. and get our gyro; and our honey puffs .. I'm bringing a bag, to get an extra container of honey puffs to take by mom's .. We're meeting at a park and ride, because I'm still going over by mom's this afternoon and instead of coming all the way home.. we'll just meet half way there, so he can drop me off afterward and go on his way while I go on my way over to mom's ..

But that doesn't start until 11 today .. so I can rest a bit this morning .. I'm NOT going to fall into a hole today !!!! Like I did 2 years ago .. and had to start my summer in a brace .. GRRRR!!!! not going to start my retirement in a brace .. so not going to fall into a hole today !!!!!

More steps !!!!! emoticon

This afternoon I'll be going over by mom's .. We should still have the puzzle left over from last week . lol lol . unless she finished it through the week .. :)

I can't believe it .. one more week to go .. my brain is reeling .. and I'm scared, I'm confused, I'm excited ..

I think it really hit me .. yes -- there's only 5 working days left, 6 day days left, but yesterday I looked at the countdown clock that hubby had set for me .. and the minutes .. the minutes are less that 10,000 .. That slapped me in the face yesterday morning .. I'm really working hard to absorb all of this .. but it just isn't working .. ?? lol lol ..

This is too much for my brain to comprehend .. but I'm proud of myself .. Instead of being scared and excited, and diving into food; I am diving into exercise .. and walking (thankfully it's the right time of the year) .. lol ... and that is redirecting my excess anxiety ..

Only 6 more days !!!! I wish everyone a wonderful day !!!!! I'm going to have one .. we have one more day of blue skies and sunshine !!!!

Have a wonderful day !!!!!
