Happy Sunday !!! Looking forward to a quiet day today .. how 'bout you ???

Sunday, July 15, 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 one of those strange birds ... I've looked all through daddy's bird book, and haven't found it yet .. It's along the line of the penguin, ostrich and dodo .. it seems to be a flightless bird .. but haven't been able to identify it yet ... ?? and since it's flightless .. I can't figure out how it gets up there .. its a metal pole, and it must have the muscles of an acrobat getting up around from the bottom to the shelf .. I know how they get to the feeder that I used to have in the front, because that was on a hook ..but this one is on a pole ?? Hmmmm More studying.. first I have to find out what KIND of bird it is; and then I can study more ..

Okay -- that's my foolishness for the day .. but fun to start out the day being silly .. :)

Yesterday was a hot and sweaty day... but I pushed through ..

We started out at Bastille days ..

and walked up and down all of the aisles ..

When we got there, the booths were pretty much setting up .. We don't buy anything (but usually a beer) .. so I was just doing the stepping .. I had been seriously slacking on my steps the few days prior I had to get back into the plan here ..

But .. the Milwaukee Admirals hockey team had a small tent in the park ..and they had a "plunket" game, and hubby dropped it, and got a "cup" .. It was a plastic cup .. and there was a little boy about 4 or 5 .. that was handing out the prizes .. He told us, that if we put water in there, it will turn blue !!! We feigned amazement .. he was soo cute .. he continued to explain that if you put "that much" water .. (and pointed to show) .. only that much will turn blue .. HOW COOL !!! And then I played the plunket game and got a koozie .. and I got a full explanation of how to use it, and what it was for .. Made winning these little prizes a whole lot more impressive when you knew what they did .. :) lol lol lol He was just the cutest little guy !! and so serious on his work !!!!!

We also got a *local lawyers* tshirt .. I now have a new gym tshirt .. lol .. however, it was great for wiping up sweat .. Mine was so wet, that it went right from the car to the laundry .. lol lol .. It wasn't hot .. just horribly humid .. and I was just pouring sweat .. by the time I got back to the car, I was soaked I couldn't even call it "sparkling" .. but like I said .. it wasn't hot .. I think it was just the humidity .. (and my friend had told me that the antibiotics could have something to do with it as well) .. We spent about 1 1/2 hours there just walking around the area ... I got a picture of hubby .. he was supposed to be a splat on the "Hop" ...(new trolley in town) but looks more like he's cleaning the windows.. lol

We left, and my NSV .. at the end of the walk back to the car, we had to walk UPhill .. to get to the parking lot .. on top of the post office .. and hubby offered about 4-5 times to get the car, and I could wait at the bottom .. I told him no .. I need to push myself alittle bit and I made it and still could breath .. :) .. I just got into myself, and took each step .. didn't look up and didn't look down, until I got to the top .. It was hard to breath but I did it !!!!! I could still talk .. *kinda* .. lol lol lol .. No more being treated with kit gloves !!! I CAN DO IT !!! WOOHOO !!!!!

I know I know .. what a small accomplishment ...why get so excited .. we.. .. because it WAS an accomplishment .. !!!!! Perseverance ... that will get me to my goal !!!!

Soooo from there, he took me to lunch .. where did we go, you ask?? .. well --- TGI Friday's .. of course ... lol lol ..

I had myself a yummy turkey burger, and loved every bite of it !!!!

From there we went home; where hubby napped, and I played in my playroom getting a few more steps done on my cards .. and I did up the insides .. I'm almost done .. I just have to finish up the die cut Happy Birthday's ... and then do up the envelopes and I can drop them off .. I was hoping to be able to do it today .. but not sure and don't want to push myself because that will be when I mess up !!!!

While I was in the process of playing, hubby ran to Meijers to get a rotisserie chicken for lunch for today .. and I got to a spot in my cards, that I had to stop .. because I didn't want to bring out my die cut machine; since we would be leaving again .. so I played puzzle for a bit .. will bring out my die cut today, and will make up my happy birthday's ....

About 4ish we went to Sussex Days .. (Lions club) ..and each had a beer while we walked around .. We went down by the baseball diamonds and enjoyed watching ..

it was hysterical ... The tractor pull was behind me .. and I've noticed since starting my antibiotics and ear treatment .. that my hearing has become more sensitive to noise .. even playing the machines .. but oh my goodness .. I had to plug my left ear .. because it was too loud .. I haven't had to do that for years .. so I wonder if this has been starting for quite some time, but just started hurting now ..I seem to be able to hear out of that ear better .. and that was always my deaf ear .. Well -- no need to wonder "if" ... let's just take advantage of the "now" .. :)

After our walk around the park.. we left .. again .. I was pouring sweat .. I was soaked by the time I got to the car again .. and even the AC in the car didn't work .. I think I was over heated 100% ...

I got home and changed out of my clothes .. and put on my around the house clothes, and sat .. sat and just melted .. Once I finally cooled off; I played with my puzzle for a bit, before crawling into bed around 8:30ish .. and finally fell asleep at around 10 ... There was no doubt that I was going to sleep ... and well -- I did .. all that fresh air, sweat, and exercise .. I pulled in 9000 (and change) steps for the day .. and I was proud of myself ..

Today -- will be one of those quiet days .. I am in the process of doing my laundry; and I want to work on my cards again .. and then go over by mom's this afternoon .. I'm happy to say I have 3 more antibiotics left .. WOOHOO !!!! that means by tomorrow night I'll be done .. WOOHOO TOO !!! but for now .. I have to get some breakfast .. so we'll talk later !!!

Do a DID and see what it feels like .. I'm sure you'll be addicted ..

Have a WONDERFUL Sunday !!!!!

    Looks like you had fun yesterday!

    Oh yeah! That’s double sweet to have the ‘spalantion of how things work, esp. from a 5 yr. old! CUTE!

    Good for you for making that trek uphill! Go, Sally, GO!

    OH my gosh, yes. I have had the same experience. As that fluid in the ears assimilates, and hearing becomes better. All the noises seem SO LOUD! Well, my hearing stinks anyhow, but it’s better after antibiotics clear up any infection when I have one in my ears. Glad you’re getting better.

    Looks like you enjoyed Sussex days, too. Nice.

    Have a great time @ your Mom's!
