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 ...
Road trip yesterday .. to get the last of my luggage set .. and we left back for home at around noon .. there were soooo many people there, it was no fun, just frustrating .. I sat next to people that were having good luck .. lol .. but when you feed the machines and play minimum bet (30-60 cents), and your money STILL disappears .. you know it's a day that you just need to call it quits .. so I'm happy to say I've had enough of casinos that I went to hubby around 12 ish, and said .. that's it .. let's go .. He almost fell off of his chair, because that's what he's always told me .. and yesterday I did it .. I also figured that I am going to have today to play anyway ..
Sooo we got home around 2ish .. when we had hammy sammies, and just rested .. I made mine with 2 tortillas, making a well .. I don't know WHAT you'd call it, but it was yummy .. I pan fried it with some shredded mozzerella cheese .. and it was good !!! but it gave me the equivalent of 4 sandwiches, when I cut it into eatable portions .. and then I had an ice cream dessert .. which I didn't need, but I did, and there ain't nothin' I can do about it ..
On the way home, hubby and I were talking about going to the mall to get out stepping in .. and as the time went on, I found myself getting more and more comfy for a nap; and thought .. it was 4:30, and nope .. this was not going to be a day of losing out of exercise .. so I looked outside, and went upstairs and told hubby I was going to a walk just down the main street of our subdivision and back .. and asked if he wanted to go with.. and he was a man of excuses .. it's too windy .. REALLY ?? he asked if I was wearing a sweater .. I told him no .. if I needed one I would come back .. (didn't need one) .. lol ..
I started my walk and as yucky as yesterday morning had been, that's how BEAUTIFUL it was during my walk .. and I did the whole thing .. I brought my ear buds and turned on my "cardio Pandora" .. and cruised through my walk .. I got home and hubby was doing his laps around the house, and said "I should have gone with you; because I'm going to be walking for awhile .." ... lol .. I laughed and told him that all he had to do was come on out .. that would have at least made up SOME of his steps .. lol ..
I cheered to myself as I made the last corner back to my house .. my wrist buzzed .. I got my 10000 steps again !!! and after not having it for awhile, putting my walks on the back burner ... and just getting average of 5000 steps a day .. IT FELT GREAT !!!!! WOOHOO !!!!!
It was sooo beautiful; I opened up the house, and took out my chair on the front porch, and just watched the world go by .. :)
I had myself a strawberry 'rita .. and sat and enjoyed the weather !!! We have afternoon shade on the front porch .. :) it was gorgeous .. :)
As I was sitting there .. I got my goal ... I heard buzzing .. like an oversized bumble bee .. and he came and checked me out again .. and I got him .. I got him in mid flight !!!!!
He came back after sitting and enjoying a meal .. and hovered to check me out .. he came close enough that if I would have reached out, I could have touched him .. so I couldn't get my camera up, or he'd fly away .. I just enjoyed watching him ..
I did get a shot on a next trip, but he flitted so fast, it looks like a blur behind one of my shepherds hooks .. lol .. One of these days I'll get him hovering to see what the new ornament was on his porch .. lol lol ..
How cool was that !!! ??? That's my next goal .. is to catch him hovering checking me out .. THAT is going to be a challenge, but I'm up for it !!! :) He brought his friend back later almost like "really -- there was a new ornament out here ... REALLY!!!!!" ....lol
Hubby signed up for his trip to Vegas at the end of August .. I told him that I wouldn't go on this one, because he would be busy with his tournament, and the weather would be too hot to really do anything .. and I'm working on my distance and walking capabilities so I will be able to keep up with him for the long walks during the days .. So I'll have a week of bachlorettism at the end of August .. WOOHOO !!!!!
Today we will be heading to the Dells .. and tomorrow my blog will be a short one from my phone .. :) I told hubby he's a BAD influence to my little critters .. as he scolded them for playing at the table .. I told him that the only way they could have learned Blackjack is if HE would have taught them !!! lol lol ... so he got scolded as well .. lol .. I told them as I put them back to their chairs .. that those are not games for young critters .. and when I told them to train Lolli, it was not what I meant .. lol .. Yes -- TD and Uly have done a good job at their training of Lolli .. on real training .. lol ..
Other than that -- I have no idea what today has in plans for me .. but I'm going to have fun !!!!
Wish you a wonderful Monday !!!!
