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 !! :)
Terrific Tuesday !!!!
Okay --- yesterday was more normal .. and well .. NO WEIRD DREAMS (that I remember .. lol) (the only thing they have left is windows .. they've made noises for every door and garage door, and well .. doorbells .. the only thing they have left is windows, and if I wake up and hear a window break .. that will be the end of my line !!!! lol lol lol .. You know.. mom is always talking that she hears daddy in the kitchen by her .. something will fall, but in the morning, she can't find anything ... Well -- I'm thinking that someone is playing games with me as well .. I'm a firm believer in the "afterlife", and well .. they can reflect their feelings, and ideas in their own ways .. ... someone is playing with what's left of my brain .. lol lol lol .. but I'm happy to say that there were no wierd dreams last night !!! WOOHOO !!!!!! I got a somewhat sound night sleep !!!!
My daytime busyness, consisted of finally downloading my camera cards to my computer .. and after going through 1500ish photos between the 2 cameras, I still have to downsize them, and catagorize them .. Hmmm that should keep m busy during my downtimes .. lol lol lol ..
I was proud of myself .. I didn't make my 10000 mark, but I attempted to at least try .. I was going out to dinner last night with friends, and meeting them at 4:30 .. Sooo I took off by around 2 .. and stopped at the post office, and then went to the resident mall, getting there about 3:15 so I could get an hour worth of stepping in .. and was proud of myself .. I left there around 4:15, in order to get to Olive Garden (just down the way) and was there before my friends, so got to just sit and cool a bit .. The cool news is I didn't fret and try and make my goal .. it happened, today I get back again .. and still shoot for that 10000 mark !!! I can do it !!!
Now if you are aware, the Olive Garden is an italian restaurant, with lavish sauces, and pastas, and yummy breadsticks, and well .. lotsa YUMMMMM !!!!! It was hard, being a "pasta fiend" .. (pasta is one of my weaknesses) ... Well -- I looked through the menu and found a dish with ZOODLES !!!! YAY !!!! Zucchini pasta .. with vegetables, and I ordered mine with shrimp .. the only thing I couldn't get away from was the sauce, which wasn't as thick as the normal pasta sauce, so it was like a thick soup .. and MEGA MEGA YUMMMMMMM!!!!!!! While I ate more than I needed .. (no .. I didn't bring any home *sigh* ) I had a glass of wine, and a breadstick to dip in my sauce, and the "all the salad you can eat" .. it was a yummy supper, and I was proud of my choices, except for the overeating part, but it was soooooo gooooooooooddddd!!!!!!!!! lol ... I enjoyed it .. :)
My scale was up a bit this morning, but thinking it was the big meal at the end of the day; and I was sore this morning, and it was 2ish hours earlier than my standard daily weighin .. so I'm basing it on that .. I know I did good .. :)
Because we started early, I got home around 6:30, and did a round of golf with happy hubby .. did my journal and went to bed .. and SLEPT !!!! What a novel concept .. lol lol lol lol lol .. I did wake up thinking it was about 4 am .. only to find it was only 11:30 .. but surprisingly .. I rolled over, and fell back asleep .. lol lol lol ..
This morning, hubby is off on his olfarts money run, and this afternoon if he offers for a mall walk, I may take advantage of it .. :) but for now .. looks like may be a quiet day today !!! Tomorrow is lunch with mom and her card friends .. :) and I'm looking forward to that !!! :) so have to be by mom's at around 11ish .. as she told the friend we are picking up we would be there at 12:15ish.. ?? why so early I don't know, but that's the plan that she made .. (I try and let mom make as many of the plans as possible ... the only thing I ask is that she tells me the date .. then I usually leave the whole day open for her .. keeps her in the loop rather than "being told what to do all the time" .. )
So -- tomorrow is going to be spent with mom .. going to have to "thaw out" Elsie before then .. *sigh* ... 68 days till spring (in case anyone is curious !!! lol and yes I'm counting !!! )
Taking today as a quiet day no matter what I get myself into !!!! :) I like quiet, and believe me ... once the nice weather comes back .. quiet days are going to be few and far between again (but won't see me complaining .. well .. maybe you will, but soooo can't wait for nice weather again !!!! lol lol boy .. retirement is turning me into a cold weather wimp .. lol) ..
The coaching crew is on a break .. they spent 2 days of conference, and teaching, and Uly is pooped .. (that doesn't happen often .. lol) so I gave them a couple days of break, they've been doing such a good job .. :)
Have an awesome day !!!! I'm going to !!!!!!
