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 ...
The ride up north was uneventful, and I made it .. there's just one street in Clintonville that feels like you're baha'ing it .. and I was prepared for that one .. it's only a block long .. We got up to the casino, and it was slow going at first but as soon as I started walking, my back loosened up .. Yup -- I'm on the downhill side of this episode in my life ..
I walked around the casino, and it loosened more and more, and I was feeling more and more like my old self again .. WOOHOO !!!!!
I enjoyed the scenery on the way up .. The trees are starting to turn as we were going up, but this was the only picture I got .. ol' speed demon, the views were beautiful .. with light changes, and some spots of red .. by the time I got the camera lined up, we were passing a field of corn .. and well ..the corn is high .. I got a lot of pictures of Corn !!! *sigh* .. lol but yes .. Fall is right around the corner .. :)
When we go up to Bowler, our data is so sketchie; I finish what I want to do within the first hour; and then put it on battery saver otherwise it continues to try and pull data; eating up the battery, and the only thing that's left is phone, text and camera .. so what's left .. ... ... enjoy the scenery and conversation .. BOY what a concept !!!! and it creates a wonderful ride .. :)
We got home at about 3:30ish, and I was pooped, but felt relatively good .. we stopped at a wayside on the way home, so I got to get out and stretch my legs .. we did 2 laps (with hubby being silly) around the wayside .. and then we were on our way again .. When I got home, I cleaned his windshield (because we hit some pretty messy bugs and a bird dropped (bombardier to pilot) right smack in the middle of the windshield) because hubby is going out with mom this afternoon and she doesn't need to be looking at that ick .. lol lol lol ..
Well ---Like I said ... on power saver mode my phone can still get texts .. well -- Kim texted to ask "why the general ledger numbers for the cash accounts were so much different than the balances .. I'm going in this afternoon, and well -- I took a sneak peak last night; (so I'm prepped when I look at the stuff without going in blindly), and I spotted a bunch of errors .. so I told her that I was busy and "tomorrow" (today) hubby is going to be spending the afternoon with mom; and I would come in .. and we would fix it up .. so that's my plans for this afternoon ... *sigh* .
Last night I was cleaning up the kitchen and prepping my coffee for this morning, and I looked outside .. it was sooo pretty .. the 1/4 moon, with the north star just off the bottom of the moon, and the trees shaped with bright orange behind it ... I grabbed my camera and got a couple of snaps .. :)
It was gone 5 minutes later .. :)
I went upstairs and decided to try 1 muscle relaxer last night, much to hubby's disagreement; but I felt good, and wanted to try .. I could always take a second if it didn't work ..Well -- this morning I FEEL GREAT!!!!! I did take the Aleve just in case, but feel wonderful !!!!
I also told hubby that I think the muscle relaxers have also been helping my shoulder .. Last time I severely beat myself up at the gym, I hurt my shoulder and it hurt to raise my hand above my head .. I can do that, and I can reach back .. so I'm thinking the muscle relaxers helped my shoulder as well .. it's not perfect, but much better than it was ... :) I got a 2fer !!! lol
So -- this morning is a lazy morning, and I'm heading over to work this afternoon .. so I'm saying it will be a good day !!!!
I'm kind of prepping myself this weekend .. Monday will be 1 year since we lost our little one, and it doesn't feel that long .. I miss her in so many ways .. but I wouldn't want her back the way she was ..
It always sticks in the back of my mind ...
With that being said .. I wish everyone a wonderful day !!!! I'm going to have one .. the sun it out, and the sky is blue ..
My thoughts are with those that are getting hit by the hurricane on the east coast ..
