I was supposed to be working 4-12 , however, that has become 3-12.
It was chest, arms and abs in the gym this morning.
Turkey burger in the pan on the stove. A little spinach on the side and a glass of V-8 and that is lunch. :)
Weather is warming up and it's time to make plans for day excursions. I think maybe a little hiking is in order.
Well the 10 year batty appeared this morning. And here I am . :) Soon it will appear on xxxskullyxxx.
Worked 3- 11 last night. It was supposed to be 4-11 , however, I was asked to come in a hour earlier.
I'm off today. Drinking coffee,listening to a country music station and getting ready for the gym.
Currently 36 here and going to the mid-high 60s.
Almost time to drive down the highway named for The General of the Confederacy.
It unfolds as it should, moment after moment. And when they come it's but another moment.
Lunch was good as was the company. :)
No work today and that is good. I worked about 10 hours on Easter Sunday and worked some on Saturday which was supposed to be a day off as well. I work every other day this week.
I've picked out my next two knives. One will be a gift though. :) It's just the lime green color that stands out. :) It's the same shade as the other one I bought her.
Chest, arms and abs in the gym this morning. A lot of the pump was still there at lunch. :) I ordered some more "Outlift" today. As I said before I'm pleased with it.
Tonight will be turkey burgers with a side salad.
I hope everyone has a good Easter. Hopefully, all will look within for the Kingdom.
On a side note. I'm due at work at 7 with a mid morning break. Oh, well.
Working 8-4 today.
Raining a little. Supposed to pass soon. 53 here.
A nectarine, from Argentina, was breakfast. :) It wasn't very good.
So I'm at work and signed on by phone and accidentally deleted my journal entry of earlier. No big loss , however, it does once again point out that phones are a pain.
I will do my best not to accidentally block anyone
Oh, i will actually be able to watch the U.M - Villanova round of 16 game or at least most of it.
So my CPU died two days ago. I had downloaded all the important photos and some other files to a flash drive weeks ago. Yes, I knew the crash was coming. I'm frankly surprised it held on for as long as it did.
Today I picked up a refurbished CPU that I paid a few hundred for. The thing runs very nicely. :)
Working 4-12 tomorrow and 8-4 on Friday.
It was leg and ab day in the gym. Leg day is usually intense simply because I will in fact cramp up if I do not drink about 10 ounces of Green Goodness. It's loaded with potassium.
I made beef stew yesterday and it came out great.
I worked 3-12 last night at the new job. It went well. I was off today and do not work again until Thursday.
It was chest, arms and abs this morning in the gym.
I bought an IPA today called Drake Tail. It is brewed in state in Williamsburg by Alewerks. 7.5 by vol. It is good.
Tonight is my last night at my present employer. It became tedious, but what can I say, I moved here back in November, walked in the first Saturday I was here and left my name and number. The owner called me two days later and hired me on the spot. So 7 days after my arrival I was working. I gave him a weeks written notice. Who knows I may end up working for him again.
I start the new job tomorrow though I've trained for a few hours this past week.
Currently 47 here. The forecast has been revised for tomorrow to leave out the possibility of light snow. Who knows, that may still happen as after all the forecast is not always correct.
Tomorrow is the first day of Spring.
It was leg and ab day in the gym this morning.
Up at 430 AM.
35 degrees with a high tree pollen alert on weather.com. No, I'm not allergic, however, some are. :)
I have a three hour break between my present job and the new one. I will be going in for a couple of hours of training. New job starts Sunday.
Greek yogurt and granola for breakfast.
Chest, Arms, Abs in the gym this morning. I'm very pleased with the pre-workout mix, Outlift. Very!
Lunch was good as was the company. Even though she wanted to know why I was wearing " the beanie" as she calls them. Told her my head and ears were cold. :) She said it wasn't cold. It was about 65 and yes the only thing cold was my head and ears. :)
Tomorrow is my last Friday at my current employer. The last day I'm waking up at 5. At least for a week or so. :)
I think stir fry tonight, however, I'm not hungry yet.
Day off from work, but I spent a couple of hours at my new place of employment.
Leg Day in the gym.
I received another call from a company that wishes to speak to me. So I'm going in for an interview even though I already accepted another position. Why? Probably for the same reason why I applied for yet another position elsewhere just a few minutes ago.
Chicken soup in the crock pot. I will decide on rice or noodles in another hour or so.
I think beer later or maybe a couple shots of Fireball. Both? :)
Up at 5AM. It's my last Monday at my current employment. Hopefully, I will not have to awake at 5 To get ready for work, at least for awhile.
53 here and rain is a possibility.
My dog is curled up in a chair much to small for her. Of course, the chair has one of her blankets in it as well as an old hoodie of mine. :)
And my cat is meowing. I confess I forgot to buy catnip at the store yesterday. :)
Currently reading Training in Compassion, Zen Teachings on the Practice of Lojong by Norman Fischer. Fischer is a Zen Buddhist priest. I'm just starting it.
So yesterday a woman asked me about my accent?? :) And she wanted to know where I was from. I told her I was from the real south. :) And then I told her from Florida. She thought for a second and said "yes you are". :) What she refers to were the States that made up the Confederacy. Well, I'm from one and now live in another. :)
I like listening to roosters crow.
There is a stray cat that comes right up to me and hangs outside my door. I wish I could take her in. Actually I'm not even sure it's a her.
Rainy day here. Laundry is done, chicken in the crock pot, dog walked. I'm not washing the car as rain is forecast for the next couple of days. I guess it's time for Netflix.
I did a couple of hours training at the new job. Just some different software and a few new things to learn. I plan on giving my current employer notice today.
I had a turkey burger and a side salad of spinach,kale, carrots and a sliced hard boiled egg. It was good and lean.
I've been watching Merlin on Netflix. :) I've watched more of it than the Vampire Diaries which I have trouble viewing. :)
Anyway working 2-10 today. Time "springs" forward tonight.
Arms, chest and abs in the gym this morning.
That interview on Tuesday worked out fine. I was hired on the spot. Supposed to do some training on their system on Saturday before I do my 8 hours at the current job. I still haven't given notice yet.
Anyway, the new position is the same pay and approximately the same hours per week. I will just be doing something different.
Hopefully, there will not be two day shifts weekly. :)
I did the shoulder and upper back routine today.
I started stretching again a couple of weeks ago. Frankly, I'm surprised at the flexibility in my legs.
Went in for a job interview last evening. As I suspected I was offered the position. However, I turned it down as the max hours were 25. And more importantly it might have been less than 25. She told me to call her if I changed my mind.
Anyway I have another interview at 1 today before I go into work at 2. I also have another online assessment to complete for another position.
I have not been contacted regarding the position I truly wanted. Maybe just as well. I think I will stay away from anything having to do with social services.
28 degrees here.
Ready to go to work.
Coffee with a dash of cinnamon.
Received a call last night from another place I applied at. So that will be another interview in the next day or so. Neither are my top choice, though one is better than the other, at least on it's face.
So after I walked my 80 # 1/2 pitbull she went back to sleep in my bed. Doesn't matter as she would have went there after I left anyway. Nope, can't close the door as my cat would claw at the carpet.
Driving down the highway named for The General of the Confederacy is nice. I like cows. :)
Boiled egg and a handful of vitamins for breakfast.
Laundry done. Watched Underworld on Netflix and The Devil's Knot. The Devil's Knot was about the West Memphis Three.
Lower 50s here. Supposed to hit the lower 70s later in the week.
Drinking a Vienna Lager from the Devil's Backbone Brewing Company. It's not bad.
Working 7-3 tomorrow. I have an interview tomorrow evening at 6. It's not my first choice but I did apply. So we shall see.
I'm going to saute spinach,kale, garlic, onion, bell pepper and carrots and pour it over rice for dinner.
more later.... definitely another lager.
Lunch was good as was the company. :) The drive was nice too. The way the roads wind between the hills and mountains. I grin on the way down. These roads are all clicking in. Meaning I drive them once and I'll remember them.
I picked up a DVD called The Fallen Angel Collection with Legion, Priest and Gabriel. I will probably watch at least one later.
Working 7-2 tomorrow. Blah... Well, I'm working on that as well.
So after I worked out today I drove over and voted. Yep, I cast my first vote in this state.
Oh, I voted for Bernie Sanders. :) I just had to!!
