Awesome Finds

Yesterday me, mom, and dad went on a little day trip. To Marble Falls.  Which is a gem of a place, it was beautiful and peaceful.  This place had good fishing spots, something we have been looking for since moving here, now we found it.  It is about nine miles out of Burnett Texas.  There are fishing places in Austin,but this place is gorgeous.  I love day tripping, and always have fun when with my mom and dad that way. But that is a story for another day.  Today is a day of photos from my day trip to Marble Falls.  Enjoy.



Another thing I saw on our way to marble falls, was in Burnett Texas, they have an air museum.  They are also having an air show in September, and I am hoping that I can attend that.  Too Soon to tell,but keeping fingers crossed, since I have a thing about air shows, and have missed them for so many years.  It would be good to get to one.  Another story for another day my friends.

Day 250:

Today I am…  Observing.  As I walked down to the convenience store. the sky was gray, cloudy, and humid out.  Looks like something may be blowing in, but there was a nice breeze as well.  It was the kind of morning that you sit out on your balcony and drink a perfect cup of coffee and read the sunday papers kind of day.  Neither of which I have, oh ho-hum…  What I do have is tea, and I have brewed me up a nice cup full, and right now sipping on it as I write this post, so you don’t always have to have coffee to enjoy what it.

I did happen to pick up the latest  edition of the Austin Chronicle, I see that next Saturday they are having the 10th annual Bat Fest.  Now if my sister and nephew are not going to come down, this is possibly where I will be.  I have never been to one, and well, I think it is time to immerse myself into one of Austins celebration for bats.  This is so to be continued.

So tomorrow my dad has to go back to the doctors to check on his eye, then he will have his surgery on Wednesday, keep those prayers moving.  Thank you for the prayer Dee, it lifted spirits, and my mom says thanks also.  I know all will be good, God has His hand over the situation.  Prayer changes everything.

Life is so good, it may not be where I want it to be at, but it is working out for good, it is all good, all good.  I thank Him for all that I have.   So today is chicken and mac time, now I may or may not post pics if not here, then on my instagram, which you can view through my WordPress, it is down below or over to the right hand side near the bottom.   Well back to work tomorrow morning, oh how I love mornings…    Here’s to having a great end of the weekend.

Today I am…  Observing.

Day 188:

Today I am…  Finding it difficult.  To keep long thoughts of him in my head, in my mind.  I should be very happy about this right?  is that some sign that I am slowly letting go of him inside of me?  I don’t know.  I have moments where I don’t think about him, and then have moments where it is just in bits and pieces.  In those moments where my thoughts are of him, I find myself googling him, yes, don’t judge, I am sure you’ve been there as well.  It is not an always kind of thing.  You know what happens when you go looking, you always find things you don’t want to, well looks like he is doing his own thing now, apparently he is on Hot or Not, and well let’s just say, so unoriginal, the photos he is using at least 3 of them are photos I took of him, funny, how for me when I took them they meant something, but now he’s using them on that site.  It is kind of funny in a way, because it just reminds me of dating sites where guys will have pictures up, with another woman clearly, but they have cut them out of the photo, or it is a photo from way back.  Funny, but sad.

Anyway, enough of that, I know it comes in bits and pieces, and it’s like my mind is telling me that I aint got no time for that, life is busy enough.  Work, work, work, and figuring out things I want to do, and places I want to go and see, it is the in-between things that it seeps in.  Tis life, right.  Tis life.

So the start of the new work week is here, and I am on the second shift, ugh!  I don’t get out till 9 tonight, then will not get home till almost 11, then it is off to bed, to start the next day.  Yes, somewhere in there I will have a little time to eat, bathe and watch a movie or something on Netflix to wind down.  Oh life, such a crazy thing it be.

Looks like rain today, so umbrella time, the weather I wish was more dry, oh my, to get acclimated to this stuff has been difficult to say.  To be continued…  Welp for now, must get a move on, time is pouring away, and I need to get dressed and out of this place, until the next time…

Today I am…  Finding it difficult.

When plans die.

Believe me, this was not in my plans.  Some did work out, others did not.  It is OK though, I get up and keep moving forward; keep putting one foot in front of the other , and taking the mountain day by day.  Believing in God, knowing He has great things and people in store for me.  Removing what does not belong, and placing what does in my path and in my life.  Oh, it may be lonely at the moment for me; I may have tears on ocassion, but Joy will come in the morning. 

Sometimes the plans you have, are not the plans the maker has for you.  Perhaps you are to go a different way.  In different relationships as well.  I am continually learning these things.  That is what life is about, always learning something new.  So here’s to newness.  May I continue to thrive and live life to the best, making every moment count.
