THTUPENDOUSNESS THURSDAY !!! Had another great day yesterday .. can get used to these habits!

Thursday, April 25, 2019

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 ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks


It was a quieter day yesterday .. hubby was busy with his olfarts $$ run, and then to Wii bowling .. so I was pretty much on my own .. mwaaahaahaaahaaahaaa !!!!!

I worked on my laundry .. as it built up alot faster since I've been more active and sweating .... er ... glistening more .. lol lol .. Yup -- we're getting to the point of Unicorn stardust !!! :)

as I'm having alot of fun making a plan for myself to get stepping in .. and yesterday was no different ..

I started my laundry, and got a few loads done when hubby came home in between his run to Madison, and Wii bowling..

After he left, I got myself changed, and went out for a neighborhood walk .. I thought to myself .. "SELF ?? ... I know you were only going to go to the "next stop" on your building up plans... but you know .. You walked and wandered over 1.5 miles (that would be to the end of the main street in the subdivision, and back) and never batted an eye .. of course your exploration was more fun than just walking ... but you can do it .. " .. Sooooo instead of just going to my "next stop" I went to the next STOP SIGN ... (which added on about 2 city blocks) .. I would have gone to the end, but I did have my washing machine and dryer going, and well -- I feel uncomfortable leaving them run without me being home .. that would be the ONE time (nope .. there was one other time) that the washer would back up or there would be a dryer .. Note to self .. next time we build the laundry room on the second floor .. have them put in a drain .. *sigh* but we've only needed it 1x since we moved in .. ) (now it's an omen... )

But on my walk, I had the Easter bunny watching over me ..

and I got steps in to boot, not to mention got to enjoy some sunshine and fresh air .. When I got home after realizing how pretty the day was, I opened up the house a bit .. just a couple windows .. :) (because I live with a freezie cat) ... but it felt soo good to listen to the birds outside, and get a bit of fresh air while I sat in my sitting room ..

While I sat in my sitting room instead of vegging, I worked on my baby blanket that I'm working on making .. I tried to go by the pattern, but I got lost .. so for now .. I went back to what I know .. Today I think I'll figure out how many to make .. :)

In the afternoon ... of course when my hands were in the dishwater; cleaning up dishes, my phone rang .. and guess what .. MY RINGS WERE IN !!!! I was sooo excited .. :)

As I was working with my dishes, I looked out and saw a hawk take off from our back yard .. I didn't get really sharp pictures (or haven't manipulated them yet .. but got some photos .. :)

I was heading out to puppy club last night, and would pick them up on the way !!!

Because I was planning on spending the evening at puppy club taking pictures like I was going to do last week .. we played golf ... our tee time was at 4:00 instead of 7 ..

I didn't worry about dinner, because we had 2 pieces of double stuff pizza for lunch .. and well -- THAT was my big meal of the day !!! :) and I just wasn't hungry .. :)

I left around 5:15 and headed out to the jewelry store .. and picked up my rings .. :) they are sooo pretty, and well .. my fingers were a bit swollen because of my pizza ...

From there I headed off to puppy club .. and I was having apprehension going .. but pushed on . I have a funny feeling where my panic attack came from last week, and needed to push through it .. I got to the club, and sat in the car for a bit .. I went in back and grabbed my camera .. and went in .. Julie was going thru preliminary run on the course that was set up .. and I got my camera out .. and started taking pictures .. :)

I succeeded and looked the demons in the eye .. I WON !!!! THEY LOST !!!!!! and in turn Julie said that she recieved a gift card from Chili's and her hubby doesn't like them .. so if I would like to go out to lunch or dinner .. I told her .. "you've got the harder schedule to match .. just give me a call, but I would LOVE that " .. :) so I may be meeting up with her for lunch some day .. :)

and Julie with her dogs Josie, and Abby .. :)

Abby's still learning .. lol

I got home around 8:15, and was pooped .. I had a happily busy day !!! and snacked myself on an apple, with peanut butter, and a handful of squeaky cheese .. :) and headed up to bed .. I don't remember much after uploading my steps .. 23000 plus steps !!!???? WOW !!!!

What does today have in store for me .. Right now it's pretty out, but supposedly rain is to come in this afternoon .. hubby was talking about going to a mall for a walk .. and I may take him up on it .. :) Gotta get my steps .. While I don'be believe my stepometer is 100% accurate, I'm getting used to "what the feeling is what 10000 steps should feel like .. " I may be surprised if I ever really DO calibrate my Ifit correctly .. lol .. but for now .. the game is on !!! :)

They are talking the S word for Saturday "however it won't stick around" .. BETTER NOT !!! lol ..

As for today .. I wish everyone a FANTASTICMISTIC FRIDAY EVE !!! and hope you have as great of a day as I'm planning !!!!! :)
