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
Another quiet day yesterday .. I took myself for a ride, and got myself "misplaced" .. I'm NEVER lost .. but my friend offered to meet up with me on Monday at a zoo in West Bend, WI called Shalom Zoo ..
So I have something to get myself excited about again .. :) I've never been there .. ... well as of yesterday .... I've made it to the point of the parking lot .. lol lol lol .. and this lady was my "best friend" in high school ... and is a friend of mine of FB .... I was a bit surprised when she popped out on messenger and asked if I wanted to go .. but now the surprise is dissipated, and excitement has built up .. and I'm looking forward to a fun day !!! :) Part of me is thinking that she just retired this past January, and is figuring out the "problem" that some people find out .. (hubby found out when he retired) .. he has time, and all his friends were working .. the synical part of me thinks that that may be why she contacted me ... but I don't care .. I'm going to have fun !!!! :) We always have had fun in the past, and I'm planning on having fun on Monday !!!! lol
Sooo I took a test drive out .. I got the instructions from the site, and headed out .. and boy did I mess up .. lol lol .. I took our normal trek unaware that 41 and 45 had already split up before that point .. I was on 41 .. I was supposed to be on 45 .. (was not using my GPS) ..
Then I saw .. hey .. there's an exit for 144N .. because highway D was 2 or 3 more exits up .. and the directions said Hwy D to 144N .. well .. why not just cut off the middle man .. because Shalom Drive was off of 144N ..
I drove and drove and drove some more .. somewhere I lost 144N .. ?? and was in the middle of the country roads with no idea where I was ?? so out came good ol' GPS .. and well -- I can only say .. I really overshot my target .. lol lol lol .. and I followed the GPS to find that I well .. definately overshot my target .. lol lol lol ... but I had a nice drive .. lol .. and used the GPS to drive home .. That's when I found out that the freeway 41/45 split, because I came out on my exit in a totally different spot than where I started .. lol lol ..
So -- thankfully I took my "test run" .. and I didn't take hubby's suggestion .. he said "30 minutes" .. well .. even KNOWING where I was going .. (GPS on the way home) it still took 45 minutes from my house ..
I stopped and picked up a pizza on the way home .. and sent a text to hubby to preheat the oven ..
I got home just after noon, .. (sooo happy I took my test run) .. lol lol ..
I got home and had lunch with hubby .. and it turned into a quiet afternoon .. I DID get 8000 and change steps .. so it wasn't as lazy as Thursday .. lol lol lol ..
Monday I have an early morning fun time .. and then we'll have lunch at the cafe on the grounds (she offered for me to come over; and we could have lunch at her house (about 5 minutes away...so she said) but this way neither of us has to fuss ... and we can just sit and enjoy .. but I left it up to her)
Now at least I know where I'm going .. lol lol lol ...
After lunch I headed upstairs .. (after finding my butt planted again .. lol ) and tried to work on some of my stuff that I had learned at the stamp show.. only to find that it wasn't working .. I headed onto the internet, and watched a couple of videos .. and got myself some ideas .. to refresh my memory .. :) I did also order myself some double sided sticky paper and am having it delivered to me .. :)
I played and experimented and watched videos .. lol lol .. and then came downstairs and played some Wii ..
See -- it was a VERY TRYING day yesterday .. .lol lol lol .. Hubby went to get some birdseed, and filled up the birdfeeder .. I decided to hold off at the suet feeder for a few days, and my hummer feeder was more populate .. sooo as you can see .. it wasn't a very crazy day ... but we all need those quiet days .. :)
Today .. so far is just putzing around the house (unless something jumps out to get my fancy .. ) The weather is blahhh and cold and damp and rainy, and cloudy .. and when that happens .. my energy gets zapped drastically ... sooo who knows what today is going to bring me .. Hubby has a coupon book pickup around noonish ..
I hope you have a quiet day as well .. Have a STUPENDOUSACIOUS SATURDAY!!!!!!
