Ups and downs

“Looking down” was the subject for today’s photo…so here I am looking down while waiting to transfer to a second bus. Normally, I don’t take two buses, I just take a freeway flyer and that is so much easier and relaxing! But, I have to take a different route when I am required to leave early for an appointment, which is what I had today.

Looking down again at my hungry cat. The problem is that it was about 4 hours before dinner time for Karma and when I come home at any time during the day, he scurries to the food bowl. Oh cats. They’re so crazy and fun.

I drove the country roads to my husband’s work this afternoon. We had a our health risk assessments and they went well. Both of us had very healthy numbers for cholesterol, blood pressure, etc. I did admit that I don’t like my job and need a new one, because I do get too stressed over my current one. Not good to have the flight or fight response surging through my body. I know this and I am grateful that meditation helps me calm down.

Then it was off to my parents’ house for dinner! Mom made a brownie that had blondies on the bottom. Yummy!

She also purchased this drink today and I was happy to try it. It was delicious! Didn’t taste like soy at all.

I LOVE this picture I captured of my dad. He was trying almond milk for the first time and didn’t love it. He said, “it tastes like nothing.” I disagree because I love almond milk, especially in smoothies.

We had BLTs for dinner! I haven’t had a BLT in ages and both Craig and I love them. I just don’t love cooking the bacon because it grosses me out.

I hit the gym after and also got good news on my phone when I returned home. One of my goals for 2011 was to take a photography class, but I never got around to it. This spring, I tried to get into an Advanced Digital Photography class and it was full, so I put myself on the waiting list. I heard that I got into the class, so I look forward to refreshing my photography skills and learning manual mode again in a couple of weeks. I haven’t taken a photography class since college.

The ups and downs for the day included:

-ups: a half day of work, going to two Targets (my happy place), visiting my husband’s work, dinner with my parents and obviously, getting into that class.

-downs: not being approved for workmans’ comp for various reasons. Stupid ankle. No more treatment on it unless it involves surgery. I’m done. I hate our health insurance in this country. So stupid.

Taking the icky bus. Rain.

Gotta go-there’s a special on Costco on Rock Center I want to watch right now! Have a great night!

  1. I’ve never seen that silk fruit drink! I love their almond milk so I’ll have to keep an eye out for it!
