The sky was an impressive mix of colors, as if God’s paintbrush had been used to cheer up the dingy little town. Hues of blues, lavenders and pinks decorated the sky above the snow capped mountains, and the sleepy little town missed the whole picture.
I love sunrises as well as sunsets, especially on the beach, yet this picture captured so many beautiful colors mixed together, I just had to showcase this one!
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “color/colour.” Use it as a noun, a verb, or pick a color and write about it–use it any way you like. Have fun!
It’s a toast 95 degrees here in the Hills today and I’d rather be swimming while my hubby plays golf, but I need to ready my house for my dad to come spend some time here next week while my oldest son goes on vacation. I’ve bought new sheets and a mattress protector for the guest bed, I need to clean up the room and make space for his clothes, so he will feel at home.
Next, I’ll get the refrigerator cleaned up and make room for the things I’ll be bringing from his house that he likes to eat. I’d like to make more of this dessert I made for myself last week, I think Dad would like it too.
It’s kind of a trial run of sorts, to see if one day he might actually decide he would like to live with us. I know I would worry a lot less, and then Sean could see what it’s like to have only himself to manage, only himself to pay for things, and get himself in the right mindset for being on his own again.
I know Dad is more comfortable in his own house, but he has stairs to deal with and sharing the space with Sean these last five years must be sometimes stressful. Without going into details, things need to change. By Wednesday, I hope to have everything ready for Dad to spend a week here with us, pray it all works out well! Maybe we will have a cooler night or morning to watch a sunrise/sunset together.
Living in upside-down world feels surreal to me, and I get the distinct deja vu feeling we are going to start the nightmare all over again!
Does anyone else feel like we are living in upside-down world? Where nothing makes sense, and everything seems to be the opposite of what it used to be?
Wrong is right, hate triumphs over good, God is out and sin and the devil are in, and so on???
Truth is covered up by lies, evil is celebrated, and I just can’t believe what is going on!
The powers that be are saying that the poor kids going back to school are going to have to wear masks again, and maybe the rest of us as well. The Olympics are plagued with threats of low viewership, new cases of Coronavirus, and Tokyo cases have spiked – I’m surprised they are being aired at all!
I used to be full of light and positivity, seeing the good in everyone. I’m having a hard time with that lately, but I keep trying. I just hope it doesn’t get me in trouble, trusting someone I shouldn’t.
I stopped watching the news because of all the lies, maybe I should stop reading it too, it just brings me down.
Tell me something good, as Chaka Khan used to say!
However, losing still sucks, because even though you don’t expect to win, you have high hopes. Oddly enough, we won back more more money at the penny slots than the dollar ones, yet we still lost our money in the end. Alas, we still had a good time because we were there for more than just gambling.
I give you a parting shot as we were leaving this morning, I guess I’m obsessed with lighting, as I found these very interesting light fixtures. We had a lovely time, and now it’s back to business as usual. What can I look forward to next? I better get to planning something, lol!
Well folks, I gotta say I’m not very pleased with my self after yesterday’s splurge with my dad at lunch!
Then again, that hasn’t been my only splurge lately. I’m ashamed to say I haven’t really been trying very hard with my diet. Just the other day, Dave and I had lunch at Fresco’s, and I had brisket nachos, with a baby margarita and he got a meal that included “elotes” Mexican corn on the cob! I’d been dying to try it, and there’s was just ok. My son, Josh said I must try Fuel City; a giant gas station that sells Mexican street corn on the cob or in a cup. He said it’s to die for!
Of course all this rich food will take a toll on my body eventually if I don’t knock it off, but I can’t seem to get motivated lately. Am I still in vacation mode? Depressed at the way the world is going? I just don’t know, but there is a bit of good news. I have no pictures for the things I’m about to share, well, I have one, but anyway, I have been experimenting with new things.
One is, I’ve discovered Truly’s, an alcoholic beverage that has 2 carbs and 1g of sugar! They pack a punch, though, so be careful! Each Truly is 5grams of alcohol and they are kind of drying because they are hard seltzer’s.
The best flavors are the punches, but they are really hard to find. This one is at least drinkable, it’s called Wild Berry. Before these I tried the Tropical fruit flavors…awful! They tasted like carbonated water with a piece of fruit dipped in it! 🤮
The next product I’ve tried lately it Qubes, which are an apple cider vinegar gummy! What a great way to get your daily dose of ACV and they taste wonderful! I got a free sample (plus shipping, of course) and I plan to buy more. Much easier than getting those teas or shots of ACV down, and this way, I can get a daily dose instead of every few days. They don’t bother my system either, like real ACV can if you drink too much.
The third thing (doesn’t have anything to do with my diet) is a CBD gummy for pain. Some of you may know I’ve been experimenting with CBD gummies and other products, and Moonwlkr is one of my favorite brands! Recently I bought a sample pack of gummies with CBD and CBG which is a combo of cannabinoids that work on pain receptors in your body. Each gummy has 25mg of CBD and 10 mg of CBG. I started with half of a gummy, since I am on muscle relaxers at night before bed. They really work well, and my shoulder doesn’t hurt as bad. The flavor is mixed berries (see a trend anyone?) and I have to say, they taste delicious, just like all of there gummies.
So, hopefully I haven’t been to harmful to myself, and things will balance out. I just can’t justify denying myself yummy foods lately, but normally, during the week, I still try to be good. Most of the time when Dad and I go to lunch, I always have a salad. Yesterday, I decided I was going to splurge, because, like his doctor said, every once in a while won’t hurt! Still, I feel guilty, and my body didn’t like it. I have to say though, it was a delicious mistake! 😋😘
PS: If anyone wants to try a sample let me know and send me your email and I will send a code so that we either each get $10 off our next purchase or I can get a sample sent to you. All of Moonwlkr’s gummies are great and really deliver results that work! Self care is important, so if you are anxious, have difficulty with sleep, or with pain, you should definitely try some of these gummies! They are a safe, legal way to get relief of your symptoms in the comfort of your own home.
