Not much going on, at least for the first part of the week.........have a belated b-day get-together at an old friend's church (belated things are just fine by me, and I can tolerate being in a church (sad story on that) under the circumstances)...........there will be enough inactivity to make me a bit uneasy - don't get me wrong.........I enjoy rest and relaxation as much as the next person, but I do have my limits, and too much idleness makes me uncomfortable.........I may end up taking a "special road trip" on Saturday (former coworker is having a home sale - she's a jewelry designer-I've seen some of her work and she's quite talented)..........
May we all find our sense of gratitude and elevate it today, and keep that good energy flowing going forward.......at least this year I can start this, so there is a special, though small, spark of thankfulness in the ol "raspberry"..........."baby steps" are just find, too!
Hope all those who were visited by "Cato" are doing well (got only a dusting to an inch at most - another reason for gratitude)!

Day went as well as it could for the circumstances (mid-week, no "day off" (of course, full employment is A-OK))..........I did take another lunchtime walk - even though it was slightly cooler than the previous day, it was still a good temperature for the activity........now I can deal with the poor forecast to come - no regrets that I didn't take advantage of a good opportunity!
Got treated to a nice dinner @ home (did NOT go out, to save a few bucks) - got what I pretty much asked for, including a nice candy treat...........I will, of course, make sure I'm judicious on that score and "nurse" those babies - need to get myself back on track (a new year, you know!)..........just forgot one thing, though........should have asked for something with *raspberry* in it! OOPS! "Dumb senior moment", or what?
Enjoy your "hump day" (and those being impacted by Cato, take care and stay safe........sure glad I don't have to do any more travel than a mild work commute)!

Imagine waking up on one's b-day to such horrific news as the Ferguson situation.........while it was certainly no surprise to me, it is still saddening beyond words.........our country STILL needs a $#!@# of a lot of work to do to get our proverbial "act together"..........
On a somewhat nicer note (not to dismiss or lighten what happened, of course, but to put some semblance of positivity on this post), I got a pleasant lunchtime walk in since the temps were *awesome* and my work location has a nice walking area.........there's about a 50/50 chance that I may do so again today.......the temps won't be quite as warm but I think it will still be reasonable to do so - especially since a nasty storm is in sight for tomorrow........thankfully, I won't be traveling much more than a mild work commute.....
Here's to a calm(er) day today for us all........

Even that surprising 25 bonus points isn't gonna do much for my mood right now.....
Still reeling from a Friday that totally zapped my self-confidence at a time where that was JUST what I DID NOT need..........and to top it off, the weekend was very, VERY unsatisfying - ALONG with comments from a person that have sent me over the edge (no, I did NOT snap, but I have made decisions that may anger others in the future) - I did NOT share with anyone, but I can most strong assure you, dear reader, that I WILL follow through on these decisions, in one form or another - this "bad patch" will NOT, and will NEVER, be forgotten!
Ate poorly yeswterday, but I pretty much figured that this would be the case, and today I am ready to pick myself up and get back on the ol' horse, as it were.........I will even resume strength training after a few days break (with the focus on cardio).........
I do NOT need another bad week, that's for sure!
Enjoy your Monday, Sparkies!
