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.

Constant cravings…

Well today anyway.  Today the weather is cloudy, rainy, humid and calm.  Yes, it is a pretty quiet Saturday.  You know the kind that makes it feel as though it is not even a Saturday.  So the rents and I took a little trip to Brady, TX.  Just to get some barbecue.  Sure there are tons of bbq places in austin, heck I really do need to get some, and do a comparison.  Anyway,  the ride was great and the bbq sandwhich was delicious.

If you happen to stop in Brady, Texas this place will not dissapoint.

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.

Call to duty…

Jury duty that is.  Ah, I do know that it is my duty to serve on it, but that does not mean I have to like it, because I do not.  Especially with me just starting this training for this new job, but there is nothing much that can be done about that, so in two weeks I have to report to court.

Next week I start training and I am nervous, this is pretty much different from my last job, where I will actually be talking to people.  Excited and nervous, oh boy that makes for tummy troubles.

The weather have been absolutely gorgeous here in Austin, of course the cold weather is going to peek back in this week, starting tonight, but I know that pretty sun, will come perking it’s way back in, just have to hold on, because as we all know, I love sunny warm days.

Well, I almost forgot that today happens to be the first day of February, good-bye to January, and hello to February.  Here’s hoping that February brings nothing but greatness.  Now get out there and enjoy if possible.

Life and all that jazz.

Today was a cold day, it was cold and windy, brrrr!  Not the kind of weather that I enjoy, but it was, what it was.  I got out today with my mom, she had to go get an eye exam, and a pair of glasses, she has finally entered the world of transition glasses.  I hope she enjoys it, I know I do.  Now just getting her to keep them on her face all day lol, when do we become parents to our parents.

Well, tomorrow it is paper work for me to fill out with this new job.  I am excited and scared, because it is pretty different from what I feel in my comfort zone, but to be anything more in life, I am going to have to constantly get out of my comfort zone, to venture out and to free myself, from the bonds of what I feel afraid of.

Well finished season 3 of wentworth, it was well worth it, I definitely like this show.  My allergies are running amuck, just put in some eyedrops, ugh, but am enjoying this spring type of weather we have been having, just with patches of cold, blustery, grey, ugh. Welp enough about life and all that jazz, until the next time, enjoy.

The Wheels on my mom’s car go round and round.

My mom is learning Austin like a pro.  Today she made it over to the arboretum, and the sam’s club, the other day, we went to the domain and the walks of the arbors, where Sam Moon is, she drove it.  I am proud of her.  usually we take the bus, to different places, there are places here that she knows how to get to by driving, and she pretty much knows her way around round rock and George Town, so Austin, is getting its work out as well.  We go on the bus first, then she drives it, by that time, she sees that we don’t have to go this way or that, and where she can turn off to get to a place faster, so cool.  She loves it here, and getting to know all of Austin has been pretty cool as well.  Since I don’t drive, I take the bus, when needed, but know, if we go out, she drives it, so the bus rides are getting fewer.  Of course there will be times, and situations, where the bus will be a must, but also know that the car is an option as well.

Plus, the time is coming fast, that I will be in training, and won’t have the days off to just go and hang out, so trying to get it all in now, that work/life balance thing is still something I am trying to figure out.  I am ready to get back on the job, don’t get me wrong, being able to sit and watch shows like crazy has its perks.  I just finished season two of Wentworth, this show is pretty dang good, I highly suggest the watch.

Well that time is upon us, you know…  Tax Time, I am still waiting for my w-2, then I am off to get it filed, have to go to another free place this year, but once it is all done, I will be so happy it has been taken care of for another year.  Well, once again, today has been a nice sunny day, yeah, this is me loving this winter season here in Austin.  Until the next time readers, here’s to a great day.

 

Nailed it!

That would be the interview I had scheduled for today, yes, I nailed that bitch down.  They made me an offer right on the spot.  Now by no means does it mean I am all the way in, I am in by way of getting the offer, and starting the intense 7 week training leading up to the actual job, if you know what I mean.  I start the training on the 8th of next month.  It is Monday thru Friday, from 8 to 5, for seven weeks, 4 weeks training, 2 weeks of phone and being on the floor, taking calls, and putting in what you have learned, and 1 week of everything else, then if that is aced, then I will be on the floor and one of the agents there.  Oh Lord, thank you.  I am going to have to really buckle down, take notes like no ones business and get my mind prepared to do this.  New year, new endeavors.  That interview, might have been the hardest I had to do, but I prepared a little more than usual.  I am just thanking the Lord for more opportunities that keep on coming my way.  Stay tuned…

In light of great news for me, sad news for the world once again, Glen Frey died the other night.   So very tragic,  I wanted to see The Eagles when they performed here in Austin last year, but was not able to do that.  Here today, gone tomorrow at times, may he rest in peace.  This starting year, has really been a sad beginning in the world of music, and television.

Speaking of television, I just started watching this show on NetFlix last night, the first season of The Gates.  It is about a gate guarded community, and the new police chief that is in charge of policing it.  Behind the gates, hold lots, and lots of secrets. Vampires, witches, wearwolves, oh my!  So many secrets.  I am liking it, so tonight I just may finish up this first season.  Looking forward also to season 6 of Game of Thrones, as well, but that is not until April.  Hi ho friends, off to watch The gates, here’s to a great day, and awesome night, along with awesome winter weather here in Austin, sun shine, and smiles.
