Its Thursday already…..when did that happen….played in the yard, watered, had a little talk with the wilting petunias, more like a pep talk….told, them to just hang in there I would be here here for them, and would be happy to sprinkle them with water in the cool mornings before the hot afternoon sun comes around – my herbs are doing wonderful, used some basil and oregano yesterday on some vegies…yum I had been over at my friend Lynn over @ http://lynzrealcooking.wordpress.com, she has some of the best recipes with pictures, I was looking around her recipes and it put me in the mood to cook…so that’s what I did all morning yesterday, vegie lasagna, a hearty, vegie and meat meatloaf for my husband, mashed potatoes with fresh spinach for my husband, felt great to cook up a storm, next is my root vegie roast off, I am waiting till Monday as the temperature is going up over a hundred tomorrow. I love curried vegies and its that time of year, sugar baby pumpkins and all the different squashes have hit the grocery store. Sitting here eating a lovely fresh fruit salad with yogurt…I took a picture but no matter what I did, it looked like a bowl of something I wouldn’t want to eat LOL trust me its very good….so eating is going well, I still haven’t put pen to paper or clicked away on my journal sight….I will get back to that starting tomorrow….Made it to the pool yesterday afternoon, got in a good work out, had to keep moving , the pool was pretty cool…they need to bump up the heater, so that was a positive step…overall…on the journey again to better health..
Had the scare last night….went to bed early to read, woke up at 9p when hubby came to bed. couldn’t get back to sleep, so book in hand I read until 1pa..at 3a a really loud noise woke both of us out our a lovely slumber. My husband can’t hear well with his aides in his ears and for him to be woken up in a jolt was a surprise to him…he grabbed my hand and said, what was that? I said I don’t know, it sounded like it was on the roof, or outside our bedroom window, like someone walking across metal – needless to say we jumped up, I grabbed my phone and had 911 ready to push and I followed my husband through the house out to the front porch. nothing, gate closed, car looked fine, truck basking in the moonlight. Peace and quiet out front, so we headed back to the Arizona room and out to the back parch area. Again nothing, everything looked like it should, nothing out of place, I could hear the train off in the distance. And mind you not another noise. So I chalked it up to an animal of some sort, a large bird, maybe a neighbors cat, unlikely since you never see any felines around, but the road runners are out and about and have been know to run across the roof, also the hawks have been back hunting in the desert behind the house, but never have landed to our knowledge on the house, and the way the noise was, it would of had to fall the roof onto something metal. I went back to bed, drawing all my energies back together to ask them to keep us protected, and my hubby went for a walk about outside and came to report all clear, nothing. So sleep was sketchy at best for me, every noise, every vehicle, every train, I was awake to hear them. I crawled out of bed at 10a this morning with the worst back ache, only to go out and find everything in its place and nothing disturbed. IN the meantime my husband went in to take a shower and get ready for the day. He came running out to get me and had me come into the bathroom, I had no idea what the hell he was rattling on about LOL when he said look in the shower, I really didn’t want to, I was afraid of what I was going to see on the other side of the curtain., well since we no longer have the RV, we have been using some of the stuff we bought for it around the house, we had the suction cup container that holds soaps, small bottles of shampoo and that kind of stuff stuck on the wall of the shower, it had fallen off and was laying on the bottom of the shower – poof the noise we heard in the wee hours of the morning – LOL my heart was immediately set free from the fear that was gripping it, I didn’t even know that I felt that way until I realized it wasn’t someone sneaking around outside. so that was the excitement for the year as far as I am concerned. LOL
life is good, hubbys birthday tomorrow, I think he will get his flu shot and then we will go out for lunch, he wants a big ole steak, Texas Roadhouse is the destination.
Hope this finds all well and getting ready for the weekend…..
