Happy Monday --- Sun is out, and sky is blue, AC is on, and how 'bout you ???

Monday, July 09, 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 ...

Started out yesterday with a 45 minute walk after finishing breakfast and making sure everything was going to stay put after taking my antibiotic .. I'm surprised ..I must be doing something right, because I haven't had "side effects" from this dose .. so I must be doing something right .. but wanted to make sure, before I went out on a walk ..

I made myself a scrambled mushroom eggs .. and yogurt for breakfast ..

The weather was gorgeous and the sun was out ... and it was a wonderful walk .. and yes ..I did "sparkle" by the time I got home .. When we got home, I sat for a bit; and cooled off, and then went up to get myself cleaned up for the day ..

For lunch I made myself a good salad .. with my last avacado, chicken breast, and honey mustard dressing .. and it was yummy and filling.. and then I made up my first run grocery list .. (all the stuff that didn't require refrigeration) for my dip I am going to make tomorrow .. Today I will run out for the stuff that DOES need refrigeration .. :)

Hubby is with mommy this afternoon .. so I'm on my own .. :) ... Along with shopping I would like to stop in at my nail place and if they aren't busy, I'll get my nails cleaned up for my new busy week .. and then go shopping for the other part of my groceries .. :)

Had a good time over at mom's yesterday .. we played puzzle, and talked .. and talked and talked .. and just had a nice relaxing time ..:) I made the mistake and told her that I wouldn't be over next week's actually the 22nd .. but we were talking about my picking her up for her card party on the 19th .. so I lost a week in between .. I realized it at 11:00 last night .. so I asked hubby to tell her that I WILL be over this Sunday, I made a booboo ..Ohoh. .. gotta be more dependant on my calendar .. it's happening .. I'm mixing up my days !!!! lol lol ... I'm thankful I'm busy enough TO mix up my days.. :) and HAVE TO refer to my calendar .. lol

So -- today begins the second week of my "vacation" .. It still feels surreal .. but wonderful.. My mom's neighbor came over yesterday afternoon, and asked "the old fart how retirement was" .. I told her, that all the people that told me that I was going to be bored.. were wrong .. even after the initial excitement is over .... I have no qualms about keeping busy .. Once the winter weather comes, I'll be able to spend more time in the house; and really work on cleaning out my playroom .. I'm itching to get my sewing machine out; and I told her the pack of butterfly quilting squares, I want to make myself a throw/quilt/tablecover or table runner .. I don't know what yet, but I will figure out when the time comes .. I also want to make up a lap quilt for the November trials at puppy club .. because I approve of where the proceeds go .. (Jefferson K9 Unit) .. and I have tons of dog related material .. I'm not a member of the club anymore, but they are still my friends .. :) but I don't think I'm going to have time to get bored .. lol ..

Sleep was tough last night .. I think the first night since June 29th... but part of me is thinking this is normal for me on Sunday nights .. I usually always got a rough night sleep in concern of my week ahead .. and I think that's going to take awhile to break that habit .. but I'm happy to say last night was my first night of bad sleep since this all began a week ago ..

I'm proud of myself as well .. I told hubby that tomorrow .. I'm thinking of actually physically going to the gym .. because tomorrow night is going to be a heavy meal .. I'm actually planning ahead .. :) What is WRONGWITHME!!!!! lol lol lol

So that means either today I'll have to put the recipe together for crab ragoon dip, or first thing tomorrow morning .. ??

I just told hubby that I think I want to go to puppy club tonight and visit with my friends .. ...

So -- No .. I'm not bored, and I don't foresee being bored in the near future .. :)

With that being said ..... I know I've been all over the board again .. but

Have a great day !!!!!

    You know, after retiring I had more time to plan too. It's kind of nice.

    Uh oh. Yup . . . I’m calendar dependent as well. No shame in that!

    Glad you had a good time w/your Mom. Wahoo!

    Yes, I think once you settle into your new routine, sleep will come easier.

    I agree . . . don't think Sally is going to have time to be bored! LOL

    LOL-I don't think your issue will be being board!
