& HELLO FALL!!! Can you believe we made it?
I sure cant believe it - because it's still freaking hot! Well, today, it's actually acting like Fall for the intro of the day, but by the end of the week, apparently we're back in the mid 90's ... SAY WHAT?
I am going to be so mad & jilted because I know we're not going to get a good fall. It's going to go from this hot & miserable weather into freezing cold winter, isn't it? & Fall is my favorite. I LIVE for fall. As my planner says, its my Happy Season. & I have a feeling I'm going to be on the short end of the stick this year with it. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised & winter will not be harsh & we'll get a fall that lasts into winter, as summer has lasted into fall. We're all just off.
Speaking of off.... I got to kick off my weekend by going to the hospital. (Insert my big, loud, moaning sigh) Nothing is really 'wrong'.. I mean, I am in the hospital getting tests, but I had to go to my family doctor & she wanted more blood work - because having all your blood taken out every few weeks from a hematologist isn't enough. Actually, it really isn't enough. This doctor wanted to test thyroid, hormones, Vitamin B12 - which I laughed when she said she's testing that. That's NEVER good on me - but I'll just let her see the results of that.
I also had to get a chest xray - which was quick & painless ... & I still have to schedule a stress test.
Which, I can assure you - YES, I am indeed stressed :)
I picked up some dinner for Ricky & I & like typical Friday's - I was knocked out fairly early. Friday's SLAY me. Its like my body says, "I cant do any more"
... thank God I dont work on Saturdays.
I did get some good sleep & got up early to watch another sun rise & then worked on my bible study while Ricky worked on staining the inside of our fence.
I even took my Journal Bible outside to cheer on the hubby with all the hard work he was doing.
& then we got the call... my car was ready for me to pick it up! I was pretty excited. Actually, I have not ever bought a car & not drove off with a ton of regret. Did I get the right car? Did I spend too much? Did I get duped? ... this time, I actually signed the papers & walked away really happy with my car.
I actually wore my DIVE shirt on purpose (A song by Steven Curtis Chapman). The lyrics say, "I'm diving in - I'm going deep - in over my head I'm gonna be"... it felt appropriate.
|Me excited about my new car|
... Ricky bummed out because he wants a new car now
But its funny because with this blue paint, I know its going to show every single scratch & nick in it ... so when I left the car lot, Ricky & I went out to eat to celebrate & I am now one of those people who will park a mile out of the way so no one will bang into my car.
|It must be a blue car thing|
I always got silver or white or cream cars to hide all the scratches & dirt. This is going to be my new little challenge - to keep clean & scratch free.
I took my car over to show my momma & ended up hanging out with her awhile sitting &chatting on her front porch, rocking away in her rockers, like 2 little country gabbing gals.
Sunday, I woke up early so I could finish 13 Reason Why. I had taken a few episodes every weekend so I could drag it out. But I had gotten to the last 4 episodes & had to get through to see who killed Bryce!!! I had all sorts of emotions on this season. Anyone else watch it?
I had to drive my new Blue Baby... or Dorothy as my mom has taken to calling her - to Starbucks - teach her the new paths that we will venture many times in life.
Also had to test out those cup holders.
Off to HSM on the next route.
I stopped at Target on the way home, found some super cute pumpkins for $1.00 to add to my living room - if I could ever get my fall decorations dug out - & then picked up some lunch & then time to love on some big (& little) white horses.
It was a rough Sunday actually... my heart really felt attacked in some areas of life & I just sort of withdrew from the world the rest of the day. Just surround myself by my supportive husband & get some doggie love ... & that always makes things better.
We've got a busy week ahead of us - another doctors appointment (one back with my surgeon - ANOTHER big sigh) - vet appointments, lots on the To-Do List & lots of places to be. Be kind life - please be kind.
How was your weekend?
Do you love fall? - what's your Happy Season?
What color is your vehicle?
