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 ...
My day started out with hubby being a "big dumb boy" .. and picking on me on a sensative subject, until I finally got angry ... more hurt than anything .. but I know he was just being silly but it wasn't the right time and I told him to stop a number of times .. and he was being a big dumb boy .. and didn't until I hit my breaking point .. and that made for a very quiet morning .. *sigh* ..
Therefore I wasn't around here much, because I wasn't in a "supportive mood" .. and that's not right .. so I've learned (yes .. from experience) to just step back, because no matter how much I try to support .. it comes out wrong .. lol lol lol ..You know the feeling "foot in mouth" disease .. lol
I did tell my friends on the one place I posted .. that this "disagreement" wouldn't go much farther than the afternoon .. because I don't push my "disagreements" on friends, when we are supposed to be having fun; even if I have to fake it .. lol ... and it didn't .. by the time we drove to Germanfest, we were talking .. not about what went on, because I know that he knew he stepped over the line because mid morning; he offered me a peace offering of a little Andes candies cookie .. but I just didn't feel like talking then .. however the drive to Germanfest, we got back to our normal conversation .. it wasn't forced like it was earlier ..
By the time we got to Germanfest, nobody knew there had been tension .. I'm gooood .. not to mention he was very attentive to me; as I got to work the front lines .. so he was on my shoulder helping me so I wouldn't get flustered .. it felt good !!!
I worked the front lines, until about 2 hours up to the end of our shift, when Peter asked me to take over the register ... and I'm assuming it was because he needed to help his brother Nick, do Captain stuff, and restocking .. and it was nuts ... people were throwing money at me, left and right, and I had to remember what was going on .. Nope -- didn't miss that at all .. lol ...
I would be happy to work the register for the day; but 5 hours of standing in one place, and/or sitting on a 'bar stool' does massive work on my back .. I wish I could figure out how to handle that .. but don't know anything besides lose my belly ... and well -- I'm working on that .. lol lol .. so we'll see for next year .. that can be one of my personal goals by July of next year ..
Anywho .. it was a fun day .. I didn't get any pictures, so I stole hubby's..
This was at the change of shift, and one of the cherished lulls .. lol lol ..
and my End of Shift Mamosa .. YUMMMMM !!!! I'm a champaign type of girl !!!! lol ..
We walked around the grounds and got to stretch my legs until my back said "uh no" .. lol lol .. I did take a couple of advil's before leaving for my shoulders, but I seriously think it helped me push alittle farther with my back ..
We stopped and watched the Glockenspiel; I had never seen the glockenspiel before, and it was fun to watch .. I've seen glockenspiels, but not people ones .. lol ..
I loved it .. it was a cute performance .. but the standing was kicking my butt ..
We still had our potato pancakes for lunch .. with sausages and applesauce; even though they weren't taking any of our food coupons .. :( (hubby was being nice .. and knew this was one of my favorites here at Germanfest I've tried to make potato pancakes, but mine were bitter .. :( .. so never tried again .. I'll try sooner or later .. ) .. and then we used our volunteer food coupons on Schpanfarkel (sp?? pork chops) and got 6 chops to bring home .. and I got my crusted almonds ..so all was happy by the end of the day !!!!! :)
During my morning, I found out that "the suffering artist" is really true .. I was upset, and focused, and I also found out that bluetoothing PITBULL on my bluetooth speaker, PITBULL is a perfect creative background .. lol lol .. it's high stepping, and peppy, and I got 2 cards done .. (at least the fronts .. I still have to do the insides and the envelopes .. ) but the hard part is done .. the front .. I hope to finish my 3rd December one this weekend .. I have an idea in my mind .. lets see if it comes out ... the way I want !!! lol ..
I'm pretty proud of these .. Pitbull did a good job !!!! :) I like my bluetooth little speaker .. I can't get my stereo working my playroom yet, but have alot of work to do before I can pull it out to see if there are loose wires or something .. so this is my way of getting music in my room while I work .. without taking up alot of room .. that was a good $15 purchase .. lol lol ..
Sooo -- We got home about 9:45 last night .. and we were both pooped .. we went upstairs and crashed for the night .. I was wiped !!!!
I'm hoping for a quiet day today .. hubby's going on some errands, and I want to catch up on laundry and I am hoping to get my 3rd December card done .. :)
I have the house opened up and it's beautiful outside .. so may bring my chair out to the front porch and watch the world go by later this afternoon .. :)
Hubby is picking up some ears of corn so we can have corn on the cob for lunch or dinner .. :) Piggly Wiggly has them for I think 13 cents an ear .. :) Yup -- that time of year again !!! YUM YUM !!!!!!
So -- I'm running late this morning, but had a sleep like the dead last night, and feel good this morning .. Between being able to move yesterday working the front lines, and walking last night, and advils before leaving, and my exercise I HAVE been doing; I think saved me .. because past years, I would wake up on Saturday in extreme ouchies .. I didn't this morning .. :)
Wishing everyone a great day !!!! Bring on the Weekend ..
