Tag: day off

Making a list and checking it twice…

The black List I mean, heck this show is sooo good!  I am just now finishing up the second season on Netflix, and in the process of watching the 3rd season on NBC on Thursday nights.  Yeah, I totally love this show, and especially the interactions of Reddington and Liz, and how super cute Agent Ressler is.  Super Hottie!  This has definitely replaced my love for the now ended Justified.  I now have a new love.  Oh Joy.

So today is my day off, and I am officially spending it in front of this laptop, netflixing, but not chilling, as they would say, I am chilling, but it is not that kind of chilling.  Thank God for Netflix, and my moms password.  Oh love.

I have now updated this laptop to windows 10, and still not really a clue as to what is what, but slowly deciphering what is…  To be continued…

Agenda less

What is it you do on your day off, when you have it completely free?  No agenda.  For me it feels good to just explore,  like today, have the day completely free, so what am I up to, you may ask.  Just riding the bus, enjoying the morning, getting on another bus to head over to the Barnes and nobles Yes, today is the kind of day for me to just chill out.  This is how I do it occasionally.  What does your day off consist of?

A Spring in my step!

Indeed!  Spring has sprung, and so have I.  Yesterday, my sister bought me new shoes.  Some pretty fly sketchers.  So now today I am truly breaking them in.  After all the rain the past couple days, today looks mighty fine.  I have so taken advantage of it, and of having this day off as well.

After seeing the family off, I hopped on the bus and headed down to the Zilker Botanical Garden.  Such a beautiful day to go take photos.  So once I get them done, I will post. 

Seems as though March is going well, a little hiccup., did not get that job I had applied to, no worries, as I see it, perhaps it just was not for me at this time.  I still have employment, making a bit more than when I started, all is good.  Will still continue to put in Apps to other places as well.  Life is good.

So in two weeks, me and mom will be seeing Stevie Wonder, too, too, exciting.  There are also a couple more concerts I am looking into as well.  Stay tuned!  So now, I am on my way back home, today has been a wonderful day indeed!

Day 343:

Today I am…  Feeling more like me.  Yes, my day off consists of cleaning, and laundry.  Yes, and tonight I am going to dinner with my friend from work Pat.  We will be dining at Chedders, wonder if the one here tastes like the one in San Angelo, oh tonight will tell. 

I brought out some Phase Two things today.  In a week or so, should be in operations.  The weather is nice out today, in fact a couple of days this nice weather before it goes away.  But I will take it while it lasts.

Today I am…  Feeling more like me.

Day 322:

Today I am…  Productive.  Yes, getting busy, getting things done today on my day off.  Getting those bills paid and getting papers for my health insurance sent off.  Yes!,  today is a productive day for me.  I am keeping my Faith in the Lord, that things will all work out for my good.  Life is moving along.  Work is work, no complaints.  The months are moving quite swiftly, in two days this month will be up.  What a month it has been. 

The weather is starting to get cooler, time to break out the jacket.  Time to also start making stews and soups.  Gonna break out the crock pot.  Yes, here’s to a productive day off, may your day be productive as well.

Today I am…  Productive.

Day 273:

Today I am…  Keeping It Clean!  Yes, today is a cleaning day for me, I am taking this day to clean my apartment up, with the onslaught of germs and alergies and what nots, I really do need to keep the apartment clean and keep my hands clean as well.  So with that being said, here are some of the delicious smelling clean hand soaps I have received.



From the Bath and Body Works, the first one is Lemon, and my sister got that for me, it smells so yummy and bright, the other two I got from my mom, I really love the smell of oranges, and the fall cranberry harvest is delicious.  It makes me long for fall now.  We were over in the Bath and Body Works  and they had one that smelled like pecan waffles and maple syurp, it was delicious, but I just don’t want to be smelling like breakfast food, I would rather smell like a delicious fruit or spring flower.

So here I sit this morning, already comsumed my breakfast, now having my cup of pumpkin spice coffee, you know I got the new Bailey’s coffee creamer that is pumpkin spice, it is delicious, you must get if you enjoy pumpkin spice coffee.  Way to go Bailey’s.

Now on to reading my Wall Street Journal paper, it’s all good my friends, enjoy your day.

Today I am…  Keeping It Clean!

Day 266:

Today I am…  Having a moment!  So today I had to go out and take care of some banking business.  Got up early this morning, got dressed and headed out the door, it was humid out, so basically my hair fell flat before I even to halfway to the bank, score one, get to the bank it was 30 min to early, they didn’t open till 9, so decided to walk on over to the Domain Mall, was going over to get some coffee from the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, only to find it has left there 6 months ago.  score two, so decided, heck I will get go to Starbucks and get something.  After receiving my Salted Carmel Frappachinno, I sat where the wild things were, and Bam!  It hit me, memories and emotions of when Josh and I were there.  Those were really special memories for me, and now the place just don’t seem to hold the magic it once did, Oh well, what can you say, life goes on, score three.  By that time it was almost 9:30 and I needed to get back to the bank, so I walked back over there, did what I needed to do, and walked back to the bus stop, yeah by that time I was sweaty, tired, and ready to go home, my hair was a complete mess, but I was thanking God that I really didn’t know many people who I could have run into at the time, so I proceeded on.  I had to go pick up some movies that I had ordered from Barnes and Nobel’s, and place a new order for one, so the bus ride over to the Arboretum was nice.

I had been over to the Arboretum about a week ago, because me and Pat had gone to the Cheesecake Factory for Lunch, then we had walked around to some of the other shops there.  This time, as I had gone to pick up what needed to be picked up, coming back, I walked past The Pottery Barn, and immediately I was hit with another moment, this was a moment/flashback.  I really disliked working there, I was only there for a month, and it was not what I had expected, truth be is that the workers were way to serious for my taste, no one really ever smiled, and there were no joking around.  Yeah, not the kind of atmosphere I am used to being in.  loved being in the store as a customer, but did not like working there, in fact ever since I left over a year ago, I have yet to go back into that store, I am sure that I will get to it some day, but for today, Nope!  Yes, that was score three of my day.  I was really ready to get on the bus and head back home.  Other than having those moments, the rest of the day has been great, but then again I can really say that now, that I am at home and just here typing it out, while having some oranges and a bit of lunch.  Life sometimes is like that, but what can ya do…

Today I am…  Having a moment!

Day 249:

Today I am…  Relaxed!  My day off, and I have already done apartment chores, and now just going to relax for the rest of the day.  I did think about heading out to the Harry Ransom Center, but that can wait for another day or weekend off.  Today it is just going to be me and sweet, sweet, netflix.  I pulled up a recipe for bbq baked chicken wings, and I will be trying that out tomorrow, as well as one for mac and cheese, not out of the box, but using velveeta cheese.  I do like experimenting with throwing food together to see how it all comes out.  I get an idea in my head, and I try to execute it as best as I can, to see and taste the results.  I bought some corkscrew pasta instead of the elbow noodles, this should be some kind of turn out.  To be continued.

Not for sure if my sister and nephew will be down here next weekend, still haven’t gotten a strait one, we shall see.  My mom was going to come with my dad, but with all the stuff going on with his eye, she will not be coming down, so if they do happen, they will just have to do it on their own.  If they do happen to come down, I can at least show my nephew some new places down town, His birthday is on the 20th, and he will be 22 years old, so it would be good to see him.  To be continued.

Welp, I am on season 3 of Continuum, and I shall watch it all today, so with that being said, I better be off, and here’s to a great weekend my friends and reader’s.  May it be a great one for you.

Today I am…  Relaxed!

Day 201:

Today I am…  Making it count.  My day off that is, today I have not done a whole lot, still in my pajamas, haven’t been out of the apartment today, did do a little cleaning; not a lot, but a little.  Just finished season 2 of the Killing, now about to watch season 3…  Netflix rocks, well I can really say that cause well I can.  Just relaxing and resting up.  Trying to keep myself as well as I can.  I know today I feel a lot better than last, and that is saying something.  I have to work the next five days, so today is totally resting up.  I need to really take it easy, and not get so stressed out about things.  I feel that taking this day off from really doing anything strenuous was the right thing to do, I mean rest is best.

So my reader’s here’s to enjoying the last of the weekend, moving forward always.

Today I am…  Making it count.
