Hello Friends! It’s been a week and by all indications, it seems I’ve been away.
Indeed, we did step away.
The hubs, our buddy and I went on a little road trip. We enjoyed a little disco music to pass the time.
I still remember “Hot Stuff” as one of the songs from the day.
I took a shot of the prettiest truck on the road.
This is a sample of our view during three of those miles. It was a very painful 3 miles as it took an hour and 1/2 to conquer those 3 miles.
Cars began to over heat and drop out one by one. Our car protected itself by automatically cutting off our AC supply.
A sampling of the views along the way.
Hubby was on business, I was along for the ride and time with the hubs. I love that he wants me with him when possible.
We did get a chance to meet up with old friends (Gerald and Eileen) we had not connected with in 9 years. It was a total blast. I’m pretty bummed that I didn’t take a single pic that evening.
In other news:
We turned on the AC (in the house) for the first time (this year) a week ago. It’s still hard to believe that when we do run it, it only runs a few hours during the mid – late afternoon.
I’m officially signed up and ready to take a college course this fall. I’m pretty excited as it’s not just any course but a photography course. I even have my parking permit and I look forward to the first day of class.
Regarding my class: Over the weekend, I printed out the map of the campus and located my building and place to park. I also printed out a map of my building with all the room #’s. Makes me happy that I’ll know exactly where I’m going the first day of class. The Bonus = Hubby is going to give me a test run to the campus before I go it alone such that I’m familiar with the area. He’s the Best!
I bought a boat load of my favorite varieties of K cups today. And no, they were not on sale. I’m just a little fearful for when September rolls around. As some of you may already know, Green Mountain will lose its main patent on K Cups. So what’s the concern? Well I noticed I couldn’t find my favorite blend at the place where I normally buy it. I also researched over the weekend and learned that it is on backorder in some stores. But I put my fears to rest when I discovered it at a shop today. I piled it in the cart as if I wouldn’t get another shot of it for months. I feel better about that, but I wonder, did I get enough? Or did I buy too much? As I hear the price of this stuff is going to plummet when the patent ordeal is over. Time will tell.
In the last week and 1/2, we visited our new favorite sub restaurant 4 x’s – Might I add, their egg salad is amazing!
Last week, during our travels with friends, we visited Cold Stone 3 x’s.
In the last week, our dining experiences ranged from Mexican to Seafood and everything in between.
We went with a digital phone in the house. It’s sweet and clear and only 30 bucks a month for unlimited long distance calls. We like having a home phone, especially when the deal is sweet. Bye bye AT & T!
So, hello Monday evening! I’m looking forward to a great week.
Blessings – Debbie
