Happy Monday .. road trip .... looking forward to my run up north !!! Have a great day !!

Monday, August 27, 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 ...

Had a good day, but didn't work on my quilt with the exception of pressing down my middle seams and put a hard crease from the front, so it looks nice and crisp .. I'm hoping that Thursday I can work on it, since I'll be picking hubby up at 12:15ish AM, and so I'm hoping for a lazy day on Thursday .. I had full intention on working on it when I came home from mom's and well .. the weather changed that plan ..

We had storms come through, and well -- while I'm alot better than I used to be; (yes .. I'm a scaredy cat) I still have to be able to see the sky during bad storms .. (and this one was a nasty one .. Mother Nature didn't take her nicey pills) .. my playroom windows are smaller and corner windows .. very little ability to see the sky .. sooo I stayed downstairs until the badbad part was over ..

I had to roll my eyes .. I was over by mom's and was watching the sky getting more and more drab .. and I was nervous .. I wanted to get home before the storm hit; because hubby wasn't home if something happened and well -- I wanted to get home before it hit; (just got home before the rain started) I left about 4:45 ..

I got home and took a deep breath; and went upstairs .. The phone rings .. well .. I don't break my neck to answer the phone like hubby does, so I figured I would call back .. and continued my upstairs change to my pjs, and putting my shopping away .. I came back downstairs to make the last of my steak, and it was mom .. I figured that she was calling to make sure that I made it home okay .. no .. she was calling because she thought I left because she turned on the tv to show me a show that she likes to watch, because she turned on the tv, and I was looking at my phone .. (yea .. I was looking at the radar) .. *roll eyes here* .. (she needs a refresher course on body language, even though I said a number of times, I wanted to get home before the storms hit .. lol)

I called her back, and told her once again, that I left because I wanted to get home before the storm, because hubby wasn't home if I ran into problems .. and boy .. the way it came in, I'm glad I held true to that because there would have been no way to be able to drive .. well -- the wind was coming from the west .. I could have gotten "BLOWN" home .. lol lol .. and saved on the gas ... lol .. Seriously .. I was very happy to have gotten home .. because it came down hard and strong, and the wind was to match ..

I pray my other Wisconsin friends (and anyone else that got hit by this) is safe ...

Sooo -- I didn't get to play with my quilt last night .. By the time I went upstairs, I was legitamately tired .. The funny thing was .. I was watching the storm, and the winds throwing the tree tops all over the place .. and my main concern was for my little hummers .. lol lol .. but during one of the breaks I looked out the window, everything was yellow; and there were 2 hummers at the feeders .. like "it's okay .. we're still here" .. lol lol .. tough little guys.. emoticon

I was proud of my eating yesterday ..

Breakfast: 2 slices of double fiber bread, with peanut butter and bananas

Strangely, I was getting a low sugar shakes while doing my seam ironing .. ?? but pushed through it .. without a glucose tablet ..

Lunch: 1/2 of my 1/2 of my steak leftover, with mush mush's, and onions .. and a dark chocolate klondike bar ...

I ran some errands on the way to mom's .. stopping at Joanne Fabrics, and stumbled into my batting for the middle of my quilt for 60% off .. YAY!!!! and I used my coupon on a couple of new rotary cutters (I can't seem to find my good one, and used my small paper one to trim my rows .. it worked, but it wasn't a comfortable thing .. so now I have new material ones (got 2)) and then I stopped a Wally world, and got some pit juice, and found 2 pair of around the house shorts, for $7 each .. YAY AGAIN !!!

Dinner: the last half of my half of steak leftover, got to chew off the bone .. YUMMMM and with the storms nobody would look into my windows and see such terrible table manners .. lol lol .. but I enjoyed every single bite .. YUMMMMM !!!!! and for dessert, a scoop of vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce ..

So far so good with my eating while he's gone .. :) More protien, and fiber, and lower carbs ..:)

Today ..

Today I'm heading up north .. as you can see I'm taking my time, and will probably leave around 8ish, to avoid more of the morning rush .. I'm not in a rush myself, and just going to enjoy myself.. enjoy the ride .. :) and well -- hope I remember the way without help lol lol .. It's Slow Cooker day .. :) and the cool thing is I think it's a small one .. :) so I'm excited .. :)

so ROAD TRIP !!!!! :)

I looked out the window to see that 'things are back to normal' .... lol

With that being said .. wishing everyone a wonderful day !!!!

    Sally, Sally, Sally – all I can say is I am glad you made it home safely! Between the wind whipping like a land hurricane and the rain going sideways in amts. that seemed like the sky was just dumping buckets, it was NOT driveable out there!

    I feel so very fortunate to be ok. There was a confirmed tornado sighting @ a local grammar school, but no damage. That was a miracle, frankly!

    Sooooo, safe travels.
