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 ...
Did someone get the license number of the mack truck that ran over me and backed up to hit the parts that he missed ???
Closed out the day with 23214 steps .. 12 hours of State Fair.. We walked and we walked and we walked some more .. oh ..did I tell you we walked ?? lol ..
It was a wonderful day .. I had a couple "walls" but made it through them .. We got there at about 10 ... and we were meeting our friend that was working in the Lions corn booth at 5 .. only to find out it was 6 when his shift was done ..
Afterwards we had a couple of beers and the kids (mentally challenged young people .. his daughter and a couple of her friends) some food .. they got potatoes, and then grilled cheese, and then walked back to the front of the fair (more walking) for cream puffs .. Hubby and I just went for the walk (because we were taking him and his daughter and a one of her friends back to their car) We were having our cream puff when we got home (the last of hubby's 6 pack) so I didn't want one at the fair, and I wasn't hungry for a potato .. I'll be getting one of those tomorrow (if we go back again) .. Potato not cream puff .. I've had 2 for the season and I'm happy ..
Just took a couple of ibuprofens .. or today will be a day of nothing getting done ..
BUT .. besides all that .. I had a wonderful day .. and I bought myself a couple of delicate chain bracelets . I have been wanting some of those since well ..forever .. and have never found what I wanted in stores .. Now I have a couple of them .. just simple, and delicate .. and I love them !!! but that was pretty much the only spend that we did yesterday ..
My eating .. all things considered was pretty good ..
I started with a big solid breakfast, because I didn't want to get super hungry .. so I started with a heavier breakfast .. (and it was yummy )
Breakfast: 1 cup of oatmeal with Triple zero greek yogurt, banana, and blueberries ... I made myself a parfait .. and it was sooo yummy .. :) Made more dishes, but it was worth it !! :) Think I may do that this morning again (just 1/2 cup of oatmeal)
Snacks: Pretzels that were handed out for tasting dips (and dips)
Lunch: Walked to McD's and had a big mac, and shared fries with hubby and a lite lemonade.
Really didn't have dinner .. and when Rod got off of his shift, I had 2 beers .. I really wasn't hungry because hubby would have happily bought me something if I would have asked .. I just kept thinking about the cream puff when we got home .. which was later and later .. lol ..
The weather was beautiful; and the sun was out, and I definately got sunshine and fresh air .. ergo slept like the proverbial dead .. I think the house could have blown away, and I would have just held onto the pillow harder .. lol ..
We got to see one of the piggy races ..
There was a marching band that I thoroughly enjoyed ..
And well -- my mega favorites are the horses .. beautiful creatures that they are .. Wagon horses are just soooo majestic ..
Petting the police horses .. :)
He turned his head and almost took me out .. this was later in the day and my balance was starting to go .. lol .. he turned his head toward me and bopped me .. this was right after "we had a talk" .. lol ..
I would not have changed anything yesterday .. and once my ibuprofen settles in .. I can confirm how much fun I had .. :)
IT WAS THE BEST DAY EVER !!!!
Oh .. and just for some fun ... In the cream puff pavilion there was a forklift .. and next to the forklift was this sign ..
The last section .. I would like to have seen who ate that one !!!??? lol lol
So -- my day was a fun one, it was beautiful weather, and I'm pooped this morning .. I already told hubby that I'm going to do laundry, and I'm going to just "be" today .. He can do what he wants.. I so wish I was able to just go go go .. and not have temporary break downs .. He's acting super silly today; because well -- because he is .. lol lol .. and I think he's feeling bad about me hurting, but 1-it was my fault .. all I had to do (and he told me so) was say I want to rest, and he would have sat me down, and gone on a couple laps on his own but I didn't want to .. I wanted to keep up .. and 2-besides the hurt .. I FEEL GREAT!! and once the ibuporfin kicks in; I'll be ready to go again .. lol lol ..
He wants to go tomorrow again because there is a Sentry food day; and well .. you get lots of free food .. lol .. I think we'll do it, but just not as long, and just not as much walking .. tomorrow my worry is the humidity .. but that's tomorrow .. we'll see what happens .. :)
It was fun to people watch ..oh my goodness you can watch and watch and watch .. I admire big people who are so confident in their skin; and can wear fashionable clothes .. but this is the perfect venue for people watching .. so when we had sit down time, that was my entertainment .. :)
Sorry my blog is all over the board, but that's pretty much how my brain is this morning .. lol lol lol .. I am in a fog .. I think the breezes yesterday disturbed my cobwebs .. lol lol ..
Moral of the story .. I wish you a wonderful Friday !!!! I see laundry in my day ..
