Wednesday Morning Words and Cheekwood Garden Pics

Walking through the gardens at Cheekwood, Nashville, TN
Yesterday was an ok day.  Many interruptions, too many to do's, and way behind, but what is my quote?  "SUCH AS IS LIFE".  One big bottleneck everywhere.  So BE IT.  Life is full and good though.

Yesterday afternoon from 4:00 p.m. til sometime after bedtime, it rained and rained and rained even harder.  We had flood warnings announced "the loud way" through the emergency tone in our phone.  Not just a beep or blip but the kind you have to go to your phone and see to make it quit going off.

I was so thankful that we did not have any evening plans.  Not just b/c of the rain but b/c I needed some catch up time.  I folded sheets and towels and hung clothes in the laundry room that needed to hang dry and rebooted the washer and dryer.

I found my eye prescription that I had safely laid on my desk so I didn't have it in my purse on my trip.  I was worried as to where I had put it.  I'm pretty organized so I'm not sure why I was worried.  I guess I've not had much desk time at home and so I had not seen it lately.   I printed out a VSP network of doctors.  I decided to try In Network one more time.  The In-Network docs are all the small ones.  No Walmarts or Targets.  So I figure the price is probably going to be higher than normal prices and even with the bigger In-Network discounts - it's probably going to be about the same or more than going to Walmart and paying a lower price with a lesser discount.  Walmart was still high. I used them last time. And the times they had someone there that would "fit" you was next to none.  Only a few hours a week and never the nights and weekends.  But I selected a place yesterday that stays open til 7 on Thursday nights.  So George and I are going tomorrow so he can tell me if he likes the frame or not.  I'm always nervous.  I'm going back to a brown frame.

I don't really have a lot more to say.  Or that I CAN SAY on here.  Soon it will be time to plan where we are going special for Thanksgiving and how we will handle that this year.  We've talked about going and doing something special for that and include Mom.  I have a grand idea.  But we'll see.  It's kindof appealing to just stay home as well and have a big meal here.  I DO KNOW what we are NOT going to do.  But I won't mention it here. lol  But if we are going to book a place somewhere for the weekend, we need to do it now.  Honestly, I'm not in the mood to think that far ahead right now.

So I am going to get off of here and do a few other things.  Maybe go in early if that is in the cards.
Here are a few more pics from Cheekwood for you.

Wonder what they are discussing?  lol

Just a beautiful place.  More pics for tomorrow too.

Ya'll have a great day!

What a lot of rain that was, I'm glad you don't live near a river or stream that might overflow.....hope you can make up your mind about thanksgiving as I always think once your committed to something you can forget it for a while....take care. Thanks by the way for the video of George and his rodeo riding expertise!!!!LOL
