A Day of Rest

Monday, October 21, 2019

Woke up so tired this morning and the gray skies helped that feeling quite well. Tim and I headed to church and once home I took a short nap and then it was time for football and the jigsaw puzzle. I believe I chose the wrong piles to start with though....the trees are plentiful and so similar. I finally gave up for the day and will try to spend time in the daylight hours on those so I can see the vague differences easier.

The football games today that were aired here weren't that exciting to watch as one of the teams would be having a definite off day. I like it when the score is closer. I did start to watch the Eagles/Cowboys tonight, but chose fun time with the kids instead.

Tim got off for the airport about 4:30 and unfortunately he had a 2 1/2 hour delay as they needed to bring in another plane from Portland. Nice that he had a 3 hour layover in Salt Lake so he should be okay getting to Reno tonight. I hope so.

The routine on Tim's travel night out is to order pizza so that's what we did and we turned on Aladdin (the new one) to watch. At some point we heard a knock on the door and Maegann was prepared with a butcher knife when she went to open it. I didn't know she had the knife until after! It turned out to be Tayler. Basically it was one last try on his part to reach her and then he would know how to proceed with his life. This time she wasn't shutting him down completely and by the end of an hour they were back on track. I don't know what I said that made her head and heart click again, but something did. I was just trying to get Tayler an answer as to whether she was willing to give them a try or not so he could leave knowing with 100% direction. So.... we'll finish Aladdin tomorrow.

Now I'm watching Criminal Minds before heading to bed myself. Tomorrow I will handle any work emails, decorate for fall and just enjoy the day. I do have to take Ellsworth to the vet in the morning (nails and stinky glands) and Auggie has nails in the afternoon. I'm planning on Maegann taking Auggie since she's home.

    Glad you had a day of rest. I did not watch football at all yesterday. The Detroit Lions lost again! Nothing much to talk about.

    Enjoy your day! Better choice to do something else instead of watching the Eagle game. My Eagles played so bad. I could only make it to the 4th qtr. as was so disappointed in their playing!

    You do deserve 'days of rest' quite often. Wishing you a good week overall and a lovely Monday. emoticon

    Sports here in Chicago were NOT good yesterday. I am not a great football fan but watched that one. Rain is moving in here today, so making a crockpot of chili (comfort food).

    Why would she go to the door with a knife? Was it late? I hope that you had a good sleep last night and that Tim did make it to Reno okay.

    Can't wait to see your latest puzzle. Glad the young people worked things out at least for now.

    I hope Maegann has been lifting weights. You tell her that I said as someone trained in unarmed combat (I was in the military ) unless she has good upper body strength I don't want her going to the door armed with a butcher knife. Unless she is sure she can handle it all she is doing is giving an attacker a perhaps more deadly weapon than he is equipped with already.It is a noble thought to protect you and Isaac but I was shocked at how easily someone trained (or just tough) could get it away from me when I was learning to defend myself and I had already been through basic training so I had been scaling walls and doing more activity than I thought humanly possible every day.

    It’s so nice to have those days of rest. That’s what I do on Sunday is rest.
