My Cheri amour !  A money shot indeed.  The tickets came in the mail.  Pretty much official, that myself and mom will be going to see the one and only ribbons in the sky Mr. Stevie Wonder. 

When I saw he was going to be here, I Knew, this would be the perfect way to say thank you to my mom.  Not just for the love she gives me, but for all she has done for me.  Especially since my move to Austin!  Both her and my step dad.  I really could not have survived without their help, support, and generosity.  Here’s to you mom…  may this concert blow both our minds, in a awesome way of course.

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.

Indeed!  As I welcome back my fixed computer.  I am so glad it was only the power supply that went out on it.  This week I am going to get some CD’s to back up things that are on here.  So glad it is back.  Now I can resume my DVD watching.  Even though, my mom had lent me her laptop for a couple of weeks.  Very grateful for that.  Gonna have to put me a laptop of my own on lay-away soon. 

Well today I saw mom and sis off, back down the road to Angelo.  It was a good time.  We ended up at Sam Moon, my sis has never been there; so we took her, and she loved it.  Oh yes, this month is almost at its’ end.  It has been good so far, I expect more awesome things to come my way.  Here’s to the end of a great weekend, praying the new week brings awesome things your way readers and friends.

Week 4:  (picture this )

It amazes me that people can stand and walk up and down streets all day long, in the pouring freezing rain, and the hot blazing sun begging for money!

The energy it takes to do all this, they can put into getting a decent job if anything.  They can go out and do odd jobs, but they would rather beg.  Yes, it just amazes me.  My little 2 cents for the day. 

Exciting and new.

Today me and my mom tried out a new place in Austin to eat.  Baby A’s TeX Mex restaurant.  Close to where I live.  I have passed by this place everyday, today, when my mom said she had a craving for Mexican food.  I thought, hey maybe we can try Baby A’s…  I had heard this one was not really good.  But the one south was, well you really can’ t go by what others say at times.  Sometimes you have to judge for yourself.  Very glad I did.

Week 3:  ( picture this )

Lovely isn’t it?  This one here knows how to work the system that is.  He comes around with his meows and good looks, before you know what has hit you, you are putting out kibble for him, oh yeah; he is defiantly working you.

Crazy cat.  Just a stray we have all adopted to feed here at the complex.  By adopted, I mean he goes from apartment, to apartment with his noisy charm getting what he needs.  Yes, he got the system down pat.

Sweet & Sour Thursday

The sweet side:  Today was a beautifully sunny day.  Not really sure what the temps got up to, but once I got out of bed this morning, and looked out the door and saw sun, nothing else really mattered.  I knew I had to get out and soak it up; while it lasted.

I had been wanting to head down to Big Top Candy shop , today was perfect.  So I headed to catch the bus, for my adventure.  It was so pleasant on the bus this time.  Finally reached my destination.  I will say this, if you love candy, this is the place for you.  Filled with every kind imaginable.   A couple of photos I took.

Indeed, there was candy to be had….

The Sour side:  what I had bought, were the candy sticks.  Different flavors too.  But, in the process of getting off the bus, my carefully bought candy sticks were left behind.  Ugggh!!!!  A bit upsetting, but as the french would say.  C’est LA Vie!  Translation…  That’s life.  I am sure someone is enjoying this sweet treat.  At least, there are photos.  There will be another trip to this delightful shop.  Today, was a great day.

Life is full of sweet and sour.  This is My Austin 2015.

My review of the start of 2015

So it has been a week and a half into this new year.  So far it has been alright, started of a bit shaky; with my computer going out, and getting a verbal warning at work for taking to long on my break, and the terrible cold,freezing,rainy weather.  The flu/cold, and ceder blowing around, I have to say it has not been so bad, could always be worse in my opinion. 

Today I am off, I did brave the drizzling weather; to go to the HEB up the street,that cat that comes around needed some kibble.  He sure knows how to work the system, and our heart around here.  I also needed to get a little bit of grub for the week.  Tonight it is baked seasoned chicken quarters and California blend veggies.  Got them on now.

The weather clears, by the time I finished shopping, so decided to walk back home; was nice, got my exercise in for the day.  Especially with eating out Friday and Saturday.  Friday I treated pat and I to burgers and fries at Frans Burgers.

Yummy.  Then yesterday she treated me to Chinese.

So today I am relaxing with my coffee.

Indeed the start has not been so bad at all.  Plus I’ve already cleaned around the apartment, washed clothing for the week , washed and conditioned my hair, and now listening to tunes on the radio.  Sweet indeed.  Hope your weekend has been an agreeable one. Here is to the new week.
