Busy Day

I was so thrilled yesterday to be invited out to lunch with co-workers.  We went for a drive and finally found a social distance outdoor patio.  A small chain called Crabby Joe's.   It was neat as you either scanned a code or got a paper menu that you kept.  

 

I was up at 5 am with the excitement of going out with friends.  Did my treadmill first thing and then got ready.   Was ready for an hour before they arrived. Had time to join my local brain injury Zoom Meeting which I tried on phone app.  Worked well.  The host stated they have few here due to summer for staff who keep working providing exercise and motivation for members. 

 

They arrived early and were they prepared they had masks all over the dash of their vehicle and hand sanitizer in ever side pocket of the car door.  We decided to tour about the area a bit as they were early before places were open.  Amazed they were at the number of combines waiting near the field to start wheat harvest.  

 

We spotted several resturants with patio's outdoors.  Settled on Crabby Joes and ordered ice tea and Mozzarella Mushroom burger and fries.  Messy choice for me.  But oh so good.  Lot of reminiscing about people, place, and equipment.  How the company owners were managing and if the business would bounce back.  

 

After lunch we continued a drive so they could pick up their online auction purchases who just so happened to be my cousin.  So I got to visit with them briefly as they picked up their buy. 

 

We eventually got back home and I invited them in.  They had to go.  Their new puppy was causing the dog sitter some issues and they felt they better get home as this was the first time away from the new pup.  

 

I got in the house and surprised to see wife and daughter home.  You'd of thought I was gone for weeks with the hug daughter gave me.  I said I was going to lay down.  Wow, I napped from 1:30 to 5:45.  It wasn't that big of a day I didn't think but wife said there is a weather front coming again.  That knock you down you know.  This morning as I blog this I can really feel it in my right side.  

 

Had to water garden last night and did some flower check and some pruning and trimming till I went in for chat group here.  

 

Struggled to stay awake and out shortly after I got tucked in.

 

To me this is trivial yammering.  Not sure what suppose to be in a blog.  Hoping trivial yammering is right.  Getting better with how you add photos and what goes when and when.  Also figured out the photo orientation issue, I think I have we'll see after I submit this blog.

Wow, you aren't kidding, you did have a busy day!  No wonder you needed all that sleep.  I find that after just being in the car, the motion and whatever I had to go out and do wipe me out.  It's nice that you were able to get out a bit with friends and have some good conversations.

It certainly was.  Showed them the changes in the area too excluding the closed places and mask enforced businesses.

Yammering on about trivia is what blogs are for! It's a place to record your thoughts. I'm enjoying your exploration of the form and the photos are great.  Sounds like you had a great day, but something like that uses a vast number of spoons, don't be surprised that it knocked you hard.

Blogs are anything you want them to be. I loved this one of yours, a description of a good day out with friends, so in this case a way of retaining memories. It is also something I can relate to from my early days of being a caregiver as Ray and I visited with old friends for a catch up with sometimes a nice lunch somewhere as well. Good work, keep on going.

Trivial yammering is the best!!

 

We can be there with you.

 

My FAVOURITE pub burger makes a real mess...but oh well!

 

Your day sounds great, especially the welcome home from your daughter!

Thanks folks just never sure what to write.  This is a bit therapeutic, as one member has repeated to me several times.  I get away with the dining messes a tad easier.  Sometimes feel like a baby.

Yeah. I get that.

Usually, people we dine with understand. 

If they don't, it speaks volumes about what kind of people they are.

I seem to be able to laugh it off now.  At first I would get so mad and embarrassed.

Not worth being embarrassed. Be a baby and enjoy the mess and full textural experience of your food. I'm particularly enjoying photos of my great niece (now 10 months old) trying all the experiences possible of food. Avocado, spaghetti, blueberries all created some wonderful messes that she seemed to really enjoy, I'm not sure how much ended up providing nutrition but there was certainly entertainment.
