Relaxing Sunday

So today at 4:30 a.m. I awoke, well rested and ready to get up and get the day started. I had a full night’s sleep and was shocked it was already 4:30. So I got up and had some quite time, made the coffee, got laundry started, took Maisy out and made their breakfast.

I did a devo this morning, reading in Romans.

Also I began reading (had to start over) the “We’re the Russo’s” kindle book on their RV adventures. I feel like I am right there with them. I think I made it 6 chapters in before the sun ever came up. I love my Adventures in Recliner Travels. They are always fun. lol. And non-expensive.

George got up about 6:30 – ish and I did more laundry and worked some in the house. I’ve been looking at my to do list and I either don’t want to do it or it’s something George has to do. But it’s been one of those days where I am not pushing to do much of anything.

I do need to do my maintenance photos for THAT SHAKE/SUPPLEMENT COMPANY THAT I DO this week but honestly I may wait til later. I have all week to post. My to do list is pretty piddly right now and I’m loving it. I still have to have a to do list though if not – I’ll never do these things until I just have to. But mostly now at 57 I really need a list to remember what all it was that I want or need to do. Here it is. Pretty laid back right now.

So it’s been a good time to read and watch shows and work on the house. I love this relaxed time period we’ve been in. I feel like I’ve needed it for a long time.

I’m sorry I’ve not had much of any pics to share lately. I’ll have plenty coming up soon. We’ve just not been up to a lot lately.

I am going to work on my photo transfer. And try to find out where my PSP files went to. They are supposed to be on the thumb drive that is plugged into the USB port on the back side of this iMac. But they are not showing. So I’m going to have to get on the laptop and see what the deal is. It may just be that those files will not show up on here, but the folder is not even showing. So many things to get used to.

I want to get out and take a lot of photos and I guess I’ll just mainly be doing photos instead of graphics anyway. But I’d still like to know those files are ok at least on my other computer (windows laptop). I can do a lot with Pixalator via the iMac with photos and want to integrate possibly to doing more Vlogging as time goes on and interesting times are there to for that. No one wants video of boring moments which plenty of my week involves at times, lol. But mainly I’m wanting to experiment so when we do travel I will know how to make some enjoyable videos. And I can integrate them with this blog which accepts YOUTube as the medium for video material.

I have subscribed to a lot of Tech YouTube videos and am grateful that such things exist for learning as others put themselves out there for us to learn and showing us how. You all know that I could have a total month of just being in the house and not ever getting bored right? I mean yeah, I’d probably want to venture out to eat or shop once or twice or get groceries – but I could HOLE myself up and be totally happy for quite a while with all that I want to do. Once I did everything on my list, read a few books, wrote a book or two or three, and played all the games, worked a few crosswords, cooked a few meals, watched a few shows, cleaned the house, washed every stitch of laundry, played with dogs, did Bible devos, shopped online, and planned my year out completely – I’d be ready to emerge! lol. I am so much of a geek. I love it. I have a smile on my face just thinking about all that.

And I’ve been missing John Grisham. I’m about ready to read another one of his books. So I am grateful to have had some downtime in the last few weeks.

I felt bad today that George was saying it would be hard to have the November dates off for our mountains of NC trip if we were going to Texas for Thanksgiving. I said “what?” He didn’t listen to me when I said that we would not be able to do this again next year (now this year). I told him several times. My immediate boss gave up on her PTO time to allow me to have it last year. I told her she could do it this year. And it was a bad time for me to take it anyway. It was a tough week for her. So I said we’d not do it this year. I told him that. We can go next spring or summer or maybe even next Thanksgiving – but I at least have to give my boss a chance to have it off. I also want to go rent a cabin this fall in Waynesville area since we are not going. I had been looking at Cabins out that way to see if we could get something between there and Asheville. I may look closer to Asheville. But anyway, I felt bad that he was developing plans to go back at Thanksgiving again. I would love to do that, but I’m trying to be fair and accommodating to the people that accommodated ME. He always thinks I don’t hear what he says. I don’t think he hears or intakes anything I say.

So I have cleanse day tomorrow, and I’m going to run an errand and do my maintenance photos for THAT SHAKE/SUPPLEMENT COMPANY THAT I DO. Enough to keep me busy and try to keep me from eating. lol And on Thursday I have a hair cut and we are going out to eat and then to the store. And Friday night is a cooking night for our French weekend with our friends. I’m cooking a French potato dish.

The other nights are fairly free.

Not much else to tell. I am going to get off of here and work on my photo update here on the iMac. Need to move my photos to the iMac for the ones I want to save so I can delete them from my phone. I had a lot of them. But need to get some off so I have plenty of room for new pics for March and May trips.

Ya’ll have a good week. I will try to take more pics of things that happen during the week for the blog. Just have not been focused to do that. I know the blog is more interesting with photos.

  1. A Painted House by John Grisham is an old favorite of mine. I understand what you mean about not getting bored at home. Have a good week.

  2. sounds like you are so organized. that is not the case here, dealing with chronic pain and a host of other issues. wish i had your enthusiasm. you really are a go getter. i admire that. i understand about your trip. things have a way of working out for the best when you have to make compromises. so hang in there.
