For Today:  Sunday, July 12, 2015

Outside my window …  Clear blue skies that fool you into a false sense of security.  However, it's hotter than a Billy goat's butt in a pepper patch out there!  With temperatures over 90 and heat indexes near 100, I've been staying inside as much as possible.

I am thinking...   Why do people ridicule one who is hurting because he is hurting?  That makes no sense to me.  Only when the struggle is mental do people react that way.  Never have I seen someone berate a person with a broken leg for revealing his pain and asking for help.  Yes, I know I've talked about this before, but I can't shake it.  It just keeps happening to me.

I'm considering clearing most of the clothes out of my closet and dresser.  Many items do not fit well (if at all) or are old and worn out.  To see them in the closet looks like I've got plenty, but when you look at what's actually fit to wear, it's quite pitiful.  I'll have to hit the thrift stores since I still can't budget for too many new things. yet.  I almost want to get rid of my progress wear because I'm also frustrated with it.  I get to the point to where I can almost get into the pieces comfortably, then I regain weight and have to start over again.

Speaking of clothes and shoes.  I went walking with Leah M today.  I was telling her that my left foot was bothering me.  I was considering getting a couple of cheap insoles for my left shoe, until I took my shoes off and got a good look at them.  There's nearly no tread on the bottom.  Goofball, my foot hurts because my shoe is worn out.  Good thing I got two pairs of shoes at Christmas time last year.  I've got one to fall back on until I can buy a new pair.  Man, I have got to get this weight off once and for all so I can quit wearing shoes out so fast.

I am thankful...  For my new job.  I'm thankful for my body adjusting to my new time schedule.

In the kitchen...  We've had a leak in the kitchen, so I've had to make do.

I am looking forward to...  Fall.

A favorite quote for today... 

On his southern accent in Driving Miss Daisy. - "If Dan Akroyd is a Southerner, my butt's a typewriter." - Lewis Grizzard.

"'Naked' means you ain't got no clothes on.  'Nekkid' means you ain't got no clothes on and you're up to something." - Lewis Grizzard

"Whatever else you do today, you find somebody to be nice to!" - Ludlow Porch

One of my favorite things...  My favorite holiday:  Christmas

A few plans for the rest of the week:   Work.  Catching up on my walking/running miles.  Adjusting to this new schedule was kicking my butt.  I think I've got a handle on it now.

A peek into my days... Not much going on this week.
And now for something totally different...


No need for me to even rant on this, the screen capture says it all.  If you want a good rant on this, read here.  Erika Kendall says it much better than I ever could.

  1. I love this post! People seem to feed off being hurtful and I don't understand why when there is so much to be thankful for! As someone that used to be such a downer, I am glad to never revisit that stage.

  2. Love the coasters! Have a great week!

  3. Ph my gosh! The Grizzard clip is hilarious! I'm from Minnesota and we say "Pop"! Thanks for the laugh! And the dead body on page two of Google Search is PERFECTLY TRUE, My favorite holiday is Christmas, too and right now I am having Christmas in July! Great Daybook post!

    1. Thanks. I've listened to that clip over and over again. Mr. Grizzard speaks the truth. If he'd lived to see this decade, who knows what would have come out of his mouth. :)
