Look what happened now...
Hello and Happy Weekend!
Hope yours is going well. I suppose mine started early Friday morning, because I didn't even fake going into work, lol.
I got up early and went for a run, came back home and regrouped. Which is a nicer way of saying I showered.Then headed out to run errands and do some shopping. I really know how to party, right?
The country side is looking more like Spring now and less like Winter. The flowers are beginning to bloom and the cows look happy, too.
I went to Office Depot for ink and supplies. And YES, I bought some more KCUPS for the office. They actually had a good assortment.
I have been really good about sticking to a healthier diet since Valentines day. Mostly because I have been so busy I don't have time to eat, WTF?! Most of my lunches lately have been at my desk and feature a Kind bar and bottle of water. #Win
The weather was nice and I had some free time so I wanted something more. I haven't been to Chili's in ages and decided to give it another go. Last time was not so good. :(
I called Vanessa to see if she could join me, but she was up the road in San Antonio stuck in a meeting. So it's just you and me dear reader. There was a time when (I was very young) I could not make myself go in or eat alone at a cafe. I just hated that moment when you walk in and all the people look up and stare. Well those days are long gone. I just stare right back with a "WTF are you looking at asshole?" look and go on about my business. The perks of aging I guess. You get comfortable being yourself.
Good thing too since the place was jam packed. I guess because it's spring break at some of the uni's? Plus all the oil field workers too.
I ordered a bean burger (Which I'm not even sure is on the menu, I can never find it and have to ask WTH?!) Hide the veggie options? IJDK...shakes head.
BUT It was MUCH better than it looked.
I was so full when I left I wanted to just go home and nap. zzzz zzzz zzz zzzz
But I pushed on, went to a few shops. I also looked at a few trees for the backyard and found nothing I wanted.
And from there to the market (Where everyone else in Texas was.) There are always so many people at the market. It never matters what day or time I go. I guess because we all gotta eat? lol
The produce was looking really good even though I was still full from Chili's.
And its a good thing too, because Rick called and he was about to board a plane for Texas. Yikes! Must go home and clean.
I "cooked" raw veggies for supper and Got RIck squared away. It was a good night. :D
Saturday a.m. was a little slower paced. lol We woke up to rain and dropping temps.
So I dropped by the office with tacos and see what I had missed. The answer? Much work waiting for me on my desk. No surprise there, ate my tacos and left, lol
We discussed going to *SXSW this weekend, but have pretty much talked ourselves out of it. Neither of us wanted to fight the crowds or the traffic.
*"South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that take place every spring (usually in March) in Austin, Texas, United States. It began in 1987, and has continued to grow in size every year. " According to Wiki. For most people its just a giant party and excuse to see your fav artist and act like an ass.
Solution? Stay home and chill this weekend! Sounds boring right? But boring is good sometimes.
Catch you later-
It’s Never Boring..
I swear I have heard this story over and over…Seems when I was a very young child my mother ran into a band of travelers (she says it was at the market, but where was she really?) Anyway, these “travelers” aka- gypsies ran into us. I take it quite literally, as they knocked us down and smacked me on my wee little head. Mom says one older woman, looking around quickly grabbed me and placed her hands on my red hair. She was very still and thoughtful. After a few minutes she pronounced I would have “an interesting life” and they quickly left the market, in full run. Well she was right. Not always good, but never boring….and usually quite interesting.
I’m in South Texas (America) today, Austin is the capital and I’ll be there in 3 days for a little R & R + some business. I waited until after all the SXSW was done. (Google if you don’t know what it is.) As it is sheer madness, locals leave & let the tourist take over. Did I tell you I used to manage a rock band? In Austin? Like 3 years ago? No, we don’t know each other that well, yet do we. But speaking of Madness…
Next month I’m in New Orleans, Louisiana. So let’s see how this goes…
Just a Woman in the World. Sometimes a lonely traveler, sometimes with the Krewe. Eating, shopping and meditating my way through life...
