December 11, 2014

Today started out with Linda and I still getting up before 07:00 and looking at all the different little chores/tasks we wanted to get accomplished. One of those was for me to get a 25 + mile ride in, and I did it with some morning left over to spare. I was really kind of surprised that when I got back home I felt pretty good, and I figure it was all related to my diet. Prior to the ride I ate an apple and a yogurt, and then on the turn around, to come back home I stopped and had a banana and a small packet of honey. I think the honey was the most important thing for energy. I'm going to continue working like that and work myself up to even longer rides.

Linda went off with a friend of hers, to go look at thrift stores and do a little shopping. It was one of those girls days out, kind of things. I guess it had the effect needed because she came back with only a few things purchased, and she was in a great mood. You might wonder where was Jason in all this, well he was relaxing in his room playing his video games, and that was okay by us. Of course he did do other things, and took care of a few on line needs and communications, but most importantly he didn't put any stress on the wounds.

One thing that happened today, and it was kind of expected, was that the van has returned! They got it fixed and made a minor change in the dash board (the average person would not even notice the difference), and now it works again. The problem was a blown fuse. 

Tonight we went out to visit with the cats, as we hadn't seen them in a few weeks. It was fun and we even had the girls with us. Where the cats are staying, there are a few dogs in the house as well, and they all seem to get along okay. The girls were initially interested in seeing the cats, but as soon as they saw the dogs the cats were almost forgotten. The dogs are cute and small, so it is the perfect size for them to play with, and they did. Jackie didn't want to come home! Anyway, that was pretty much the day, and it was a nice relaxing day. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Sounds like a full day!
    Know that I'm here praying!
    Psalms 145:14-18 The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down. The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season. Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing. The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works. The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.
