Texas Landscape and Other Thursday Stuff

A Ranch Landscape in TX

Well, Katy and Cody made it to Texas.  Thanks for your prayers for their travel and their trip.  They come back next Monday.  Katy sent me this pic of the TX landscape out there. Thirteen hours.  Cody loves this place.  George says they'll end up back there someday. (I hope not!  We'd miss them!)  It seems like the most remote place on earth, on a ranch about 2.5 miles west of Dallas.   There is a small town there, Breckenridge.  It is big enough to have a Walmart and a Sonic.  Most restaurants are local owned.  

A bit of a busy day yesterday.  Worked late to finish something I was working on.  And then realized I needed to rush to the vet before they closed to get Tugie's meds.  Got that done. 

Nearing the end of my audio book.  It's a long one.  I've enjoyed it.  Nora Roberts spins a good story.  "Genuine Lies".  It has kept me entertained for hours.  So the commute has been quick.  lol  It'll be finished I think before the week is over.  Can't wait to get in the car and listen this morning.

Speaking of commute.  Only one more month to enjoy the quicker commute.  Soon another 10 to 15 minutes will be added to it due to school zones and extra traffic. 

Last night we had leftovers.  Also had them for lunch.  I think we have demolished them pretty much. 

Watched two Sopranos shows.  I'm a bit put out.  They left us with a Cliff Hanger.  And the new season did not pick up with it.  So I'm wondering if George got the discs out of order or something.  He said he did not!  But there was one time in the first season when he did mix up a show so I'm wondering!  It just didn't pick up where it left off.  And it's just odd.  

Anyway, sleep was good other than waking up a lot during the night.  I woke up nearly every hour on the hour for some reason and always surprised that it was so early.  Like I woke at 11:30, 12:30, 1:30, 2:30.  I NEVER wake up before 2 unless George makes too much noise or turns on a light.  But he was in bed by 10:30.  lol  So I am not sure why I woke up so much.  I feel pretty good this morning though.  The coffee sure is good.  Seattles Best - Portside blend.  Doesn't that sound like my kind of coffee?  ha. 

Part of our Walmart order came in (from the missing one).  Waiting on the other box.  It was not due until Monday the 10th.  Box 2 is out there wandering around Nashville apparently.  I love the tracking mechanism built into the order - so it's easy to just click and see where it is off of the Walmart site.  It's kinda fun actually until the box just quits moving and you go "uh oh".  So this "enroute" in Nashville for 2 days is a little concerning.  I've had trouble with the last two orders so if things don't improve I'm going to have to start going out and getting the household items.  I'm just enjoying us not having to wag all this in the house and up the stairs.  It lessens the grocery items you have to fool with when going out. 

Well I better get off of here. Today I'm ordering lunch to be delivered.  So don't have to pack lunch.  We have a call that is right at my lunch time.  Since I have some sugar issues, I don't want to wait til 12 to eat, so I have lunch delivered on those days where we conf calls take up my lunch time.  I eat while we are on the call and that way my tummy is happy and so am I.  My system does not like it very much when I veer off the eating schedule.  So basically I won't have any lunch time today unless I take a few minutes after the call.  But anyway, it's Thursday and tomorrow's Friday and what a wonderful short week it has been.  

I'm anxious to see what Katy and Cody get into at the ranch.  I'm sure the guys will go hunting.  She may go too.  

Well, ya'll have a good day.


  1. i had trouble with a walmart order too. glad cody and katy got there safely.

  2. Thank the dear Lord our children arrived safely! Mine arrived late last night and didn't actually see their text till I woke up this morning. They are in the Amarillo area. I'm thing Walmart has a big problem and loosing money with lost shipments. Or is it UPS that needs more help now that more people are ordering on line and having things shipped. I rarely order on line, but go shopping. I'm not as busy as you are and shopping is no problem. Glad you can order something to be delivered for lunch. Sure beats going out for you.

  3. I don't think I would like living in Texas. Not that far from family. I have to eat small regular meals or I feel bad. I'm not on meds but try to avoid carbs and sugar. My blood sugar shot up really high and I ended up in the Er hospital. Diabetes runs in my family. It's good you stay on schedule. I love the Sopranos. I hated when it ended. We are hooked on Outlander. If you haven't watched you need to. It's really good and has romance and History in it.
