I am sure my sleep clock is off kilter, LOL. I went to bed last night at around 1:30AM. woke up at 6:30AM because Gary made a lot of noise this morning getting ready for work (I sleep in the living room)but I went back to sleep when he left and just got up at 10AM.
I called my dad last night too, he lives in San Diego and I wanted to make sure he was safe from the fires. I was hearing towns I used to live in getting evacuated. He said the fires are not close enough to them yet, but there is a lot of smoke and ash in the air so they are all staying inside. I have several relatives living in Orange county and San Diego counties and friends too. So I was awake praying for them all to be safe and spared if possible.
Adam went to see a new DR yesterday. Changing primaries because the DR he had really dropped the ball if you ask me. For his bathroom problem they were told to...
1- Give him more water ( I already do this )
2- Give him 1/4 cup prune juice before he eats ( I do this too )
3- Get him to eat more fiber rich foods ( also doing this )
4- Get him off the bottle ( been working on this too )
This Dr said the bottle is the reason his iron count is low. Interesting huh? I found a recipe for homemade brownies that have pureed spinach and carrots in them, but taste just like brownies... can't wait to try them. I also have a recipe for pumpkin muffins... a weight watcher recipe I make a lot, I love them, one box of cake mix and one can of pumpkin, mix together and cook as cupcakes as box instructs... the batter is thick and the cupcakes are huge (12) but they are low in points (a WW term) and super yummy. Anyway, Adam likes cupcakes so I am going to make some before he comes Thursday.
My son Jim called yesterday too from Chicago... he said he was one of 4 students in his studio class to get tickets to a lecture on November 5th... the speaker...
GEORGE LUCAS. He is psyched. He makes films, some are really good too, and Lucas is supposed to be telling them how he went about getting funding for Star Wars and how he got started etc. I am happy for Jim, this is maybe one of the best things to happen in Chicago so far.
I guess that's all the news I have for today. I did get a lot of my chores done yesterday, even found a $200 error in my checkbook, not to my favor either, well actually it was, because I found it before I tried to spend it, right?
So onto the contest for today...Ready to make a caption to a picture? I know you love these the best, right? Well at least I hope you like them... Here's the picture...
POST A "CAPTION" ON THE COMMENT SECTION FOR THE PICTURE ABOVE. BE CREATIVE, HAVE FUN, MAKE SOMEONE SMILE TODAY, ESPECIALLY ME...LOL. COME ON... LET'S SEE IF WE CAN GET ON A "ROLL" LOL
ANY ONE WHO POSTS A COMMENT WILL EARN AN ENTRY IN THE CONTEST FOR THE MYSTERY OCTOBER PRIZE.
By the way this picture is of an actual pattern available out there in cyber space...but I couldn't help using the picture as a Caption photo, it was just too out there.
Looking forward to comments today, I'll be back tomorrow. If anyone wants the pattern remind me and I'll look for it again, OK?
Happy Tuesday, be thankful you are safe from fires and floods today, and remember to pray for those who are not.
