cars..cars..and more cars

extending my birthday today   or so it seems...first here are the photos i took yesterday   didn't realize i had taken 50 photos before the battery died   there's plenty of cars but there's a couple extra of baby goats, shetland ponies, another pheasant, colorful hat and whatever else i shot   i really enjoyed  these cars   they're all beautiful   of course i'm partial to the trucks   i did fall in love with one of the Dodge cars   i think it was a 38, beige and a bit brown coloring  anyways, i was in the middle of shooting the animals when the battery died   so maybe this sunday i'll be back out there for other photos i had wanted to shoot   it was a bit of fun while it lasted tho   it just wasn't meant to be for the entire day yesterday...

so anyways, i go to lunch with Marsha today   that was very pleasant today and she brought me my birthday present   it is a wind chime   i had mentioned months ago that she could get me one   i've always wanted one and just haven't ever gotten around to buying one, or more   she bought one with a sun on it since she remembered my days of rising for the sunrise   haven't done that lately, but i'll be back to doin that again from time to time   she was in good spirits today  one thing i love about Marsha is her sense of humor   although she hasn't heard from her daughter since the fight, she was being humorous about the situation today bouncing back to her real self despite it being painful for her  we had a good chat about what happened   in time her daughter will come around and she knows this  it's all good...

then i went to my doctor's appointment today   just an annual physical check up   i'm good except maybe my cholesterol is still up since my weight is still up   she didn't give me a lecture, but she did discuss exercise and diet again   later this week i'll do blood work to know my cholesterol   if it's the same or worse, she put me on medication for it   otherwise it's back to my exercising which i want to do anyways   not only for the health of it again, i love doing it and to start NOW to prepare for my Grand Canyon trip again next year...which by the way i talked to George the other day    he's finally starting to realize this isn't any easy trek he's going to be on and that he's way out of shape for it   now i'll wait and see if he follows thru...

now, when i got home from the doc, after running an errand for Marsha, i picked up my mail from the box only to find a package there from my sister   she too said she was sending a card   well i got a package with all kinds of stuff in it   it definitely was a surprise   got pencils, notepad, and a couple of calendars-one a mouse pad, the other pocket calendar with puppies on it  i also got 2 shirts  i laughed and had to call Marsha   she knows i have a thing for shirts  i buy them ALL the time   well my sis sent me not one, but two shirts from disney   i love 'em   it was a great present..o yes, she sent me some chocolate too:-)....

well then, i proceeded to do my dishes   i was determined to get some house chores done today   so i did the dishes and cleaned the kitchen except for mopping the floor    i then called Jesse for he mentioned earlier today he wanted to do something tonite  i didnt get a hold of him and he didn't call back   so i'm guessing he's in bed resting   i left him a message on the phone to go back to bed if that was what he was doin   he's been sleepin' a lot lately   he needs to save his strength   i'll call him in the mornin, and call Sandy in the meantime to make sure he's ok   he stays with Sandy and her husband at their house and has for some time   she's how i met him  she brought him to church a year ago or so.....

anyways, i'm resting tonite   i still have a slight head cold and need to rest myself before back to work manana  ..hopefully the good news will arrive tomorrow about my job at the church and i can start counting down the days til i get there.....sweet dreams...g'nite all

I have wanted a nice wind chime for years!  Every time I look at them I say I am gonna buy one and then I decide I could use the money on something else...maybe I will hint about one for Christmas.

Love the pictures!
