Early Morning Silence…

What I love about the early mornings in my life; are that it is filled with peace and semi-silence.  Here I am sitting out at the park next to Central Market, waiting for the time when have to be on the grind.  it is relatively quiet.  There is bustling from time to time, with joggers on the trails, and the engine hum from the truck waiting to unload; otherwise  it is a nice morning.  I so love the early morning hours.

The weather is nice at the moment, but the gray of the clouds are moving in.  weather is about to turn cold.  

Glitches in my mom’s move to the rehab, her platelets were too low, so they gave her another round of blood, and is keeping her at the hospital.  She will be there all this week, and weekend.  They will see what’s what after.  I terribly hate what is going on with her, to see her in such pain.  Family, friends, and prayers is what keeps me sane.  To God goes the glory.  

Yesterday I had my first Chai Latte in a year.  From Central market of course.  I am about to walk over and get me one before work.  I have definitely missed them.  

So I shall enjoy my quiet time this morning, and I hope your day is filled with some quietness as well.  Until the next time, enjoy.

Life…

Is precious, when major things happen, it makes you take stock.  Stock in the little things, in the big things, and in the between things. What’s really important.  My mom has been ill for over a month.  First with Gout,then something else that took over her body.  Come to find out she has leukemia.  So she has been in the Hospital since Sunday, and she will be transfered to the hospital in south Austin today., they will get her set up and take it from there.  Am I scared;yes I am.  We have to stay strong as a family unit, keep strong for her.  So much is going through my mind, but no time to process it all.  I work everyday, and my mind races.  My dad took time off to be with his wife,to which I commend,he needs that, she needs that. I know God has his hands of protection around us.  Major changes for this family unit,with God all things are possible.  

Training Days…

Well today is day three of three weeks of training.  Hoping to pass tests next week.  The trainer just seems less than thrilled, basically the class is boring.  There are 21 of us stuck in a tiny cramped class,  it is a snoozefest.  Everything is done on a projector screen, I take notes by hand, she does not clue you in on what important notes should be taken.  You are just figuring it out as you go along.  The class participation is meh…  I just pray I soak it all in.  Stay tuned.

Between getting home around 6 and taking in the Olympics, that has been my week.  Then dinner, and off to bed to start it all over again.  I am glad that the training schedule has the weekends off.  I can do something this Saturday, probably  go to the mall.  Speaking of Olympics, did anyone catch those swimming finals oh yeah!  They worked it out. Well, time to get this day started, gotta keep hydrated, it’s hot out there y’all.  Enjoy your day.

Today was a good day…

First day of the new job.  Went well, no first day jitters for me, probably because I was just way ready to get back at it.  Bills wait for no one.  I feel confident that I will do well, more like I am praying I will do good.  Stay tuned!  Today was not as hot as yesterday and the day before, I can deal with it today.  I am returning to waking up at 5 am to get the 6 am bus.  Since this job is far south, out near the airport area.  I am going to do my best, try to get a whole year in if possible, then try for something a little more closer to the north.  

Life has been chugging on for me.  Trying to keep cool in the heat of summer.  Especially since I hate staying indoors, when I can be out exploring, but for my health, I try to limit the outdoors to early mornings.  

Gonna try to get to the pecan street festival next month.  Plus going to start attending church again.  Stay tuned as well.  Well this is it for now, until the next time.  Enjoy!

Plates…

So trying to get new plates for my apartment.  I bought the chevron pattern dinner plates, but couldn’t find any of the salad plates to match,  BTW got these at Ross.  So went to several ones an still couldn’t find the smaller plates.  So I bought these with the little patterns.  I think they will go good together.  Just trying to get a new scheme of thing going in the kitchen.  Also, looking for new things for the apartment, decided to renew my lease for at least another year.  Gives me something to do.  Once it gets finished, will post photos.  Enjoy your night.
