The clouds were really pretty yesterday. My phone not doing it justice, but I noticed how wispy they were, meaning the atmosphere was a little cooler up there. We had our first taste of cool weather last night as well as the cooler air came in. I think it was forecast to be around 60. I could feel the relief as I sat with some screens open in the sun room last night. I should be there this morning too typing, but I am here at my desk.
I've had a little trouble this morning, it's still not over, but my left pinky and ring finger were slept on last night and went numb on me. Normally moving positions will bring the feeling back. I've been up nearly an hour now and the feeling is not all the way back yet in these two fingers. I can tell it has improved though by about 70% so at least I know it is coming back. I think it must be a nerve thing then and not a blood flow thing. But this was a bit scary this morning. This has not ever happened before. No other limbs are doing this and nothing else anywhere is effected. The typing is helping too. So that is good. Maybe the coffee is too. lol
Yesterday went really fast for a Monday. It wasn't too wild either and that was good. There were a few interruptions though as we tried to accomplish what others needed but all figured out. A few fires as always and a few last minute surprises and woops but I think all were sufficiently taken care of and thwarted.
I worked on annual reviews for the GM's yesterday afternoon, worked on some OSHA needs regarding OSHA logs which I scanned for another supervisor as OSHA is coming in for an obviously planned visit on Wed. The rest of the day was emails (loads of them), looking up b/g checks and d/s's and following up on a few things, and the fires and interruptions. Today I will get started gathering the info for our annual EEOC reporting.
Continuing to worry (and notice) the aging of my Tugie. Her changes, have been subtle til now. She is probably having some fluid build up or something with her heart that makes her cough. She's always coughed but she coughs more loudly now - especially when she gets excited. I think really that the last rounds of meds she's had - may have helped her in the short run, but hurt her in the long run. I think they have further aged her. She no longer has an ear infection but she can't hardly hear now. And the allergy meds seem to have made her heart/breathing worse. Go figure. Isn't that the way meds do all of us? Takes care of the immediate issue but causes longer term issues or other problems? She is very clingy now and wants to be in the room with me wherever I am. Bless her. But she still seems happy at times so I don't think her quality of life is over just yet. I do think this heart/coughing thing is getting a little more serious of an issue for her though. Bless her. I just love her and tell her that every day now. I did anyway. But now I have to get in her face and tell her and kiss her head b/c she doesn't always hear me. :-( Her sight and her hearing is going. It's there enough for her to get by, but you can tell that sometimes she can't see you and can barely hear. She doesn't always come when called now. You have to be right in front of her. Loud noises scare her. She knows something happened but what once she would recognize and a normal household noise, scares her.
Katy and I went to get our toes done and out to dinner. A thoroughly enjoyable evening. The new place we go for toes this year is worth the extra $10. Wine, and also more massaging and more things go on your legs, sloughing scrubs, creams, oils---ahhhhh. This one last night massaged my feet like no other. Oh yeah.
We went to Jonathan's and had dinner. I got the alfredo. It was so heavenly. The past year or two I have diminished my pasta ordering b/c I really ate too much of it and have tried to cut out a lot of the enriched flour when I can. I have been going for whole grain and when shopping look for the symbol. But this just looked to be what called me most on the menu. My second choice would have been quesadilla. ;-)
Afterwards I came home and read. It was 8:30 and George was just heating up dinner.
Well, my books are really good right now and I'm enjoying them. My least favorite is Michael Crichton's Pirate Lattitudes. However, I keep plugging away at it.
I noticed yesterday that there was a new Below Deck, Mediterranean coming out! What??? I thought that the show I watched was pretty old and that was the first one. And then all the other Below Decks came out and there have been several seasons. I'm really confused now. But...there is a new Below Deck, Mediterranean coming out soon with most of the original cast. ;-) Yay. I like the Mediterranean cast the best. The chef is my favorite. Love his accent and he's just very cool. lol
So I'm enjoying this show with my love for the ocean, boats, and of course my love of reality TV and watching how they react to one another and react to situations and develop relationships --or not. Plus they focus a lot on the food and in how they please their charter guests. So it just has all the elements of a perfect show for me.
I find myself thinking:
If I could afford to spend 100,000 on a week long yachting excursion:
*What food would I want to request
*What water activities would I want to do?
*What theme party would I have?
*What activities would we do on board
*What ocean would be on?
*What in land excursions would you have?
I've actually enjoyed planning my little gettaway that I'll never have. Maybe I'll blog about it soon. I don't have time today to answer all those questions.
You think about it too. If you could rent a charter yacht --what would you do? I'll plan to do a blog entry soon and will do a 7 day excursion for all of us. We can dream right? I'll invite all of you. It's just a dream, so why not! If I ever win the lottery maybe we will make it come true. So look forward to THAT entry! lol
Here's my last night dinner! Better go get ready for work.
Oh and Tugie just saw a deer out the window from her chair a room away so her vision is not as bad as I thought! lol That was exciting. There is a Momma and her baby and they frequent this area quite a bit.
Have a great day! Be dreaming about our yachting excursion! lolOh if only!
