I woke up that morning around 1 AM after three hours of sleep,I got a late start leaving to go out to my other place. I was running around doing some errands that morning,packing my stuff for the trip out and trying to answer as many post as I could before I left. I normally pack the night before why I didn’t this time I don’t have a clue. I finally left here about 10 AM. I stopped in a town called Goddard on the way to try a smoothie at MacDonald’s. It was terrible it had way to much ice, I make better ones at home using ice cold water instead of ice. When I was in there I caught up some more on some post that were quickly adding up,this was getting to the point of being a bit obsessive most people know I catch up when I get back anyway.
I took the back road out and took a few pictures on the way. The only reason I took this one was during my last time off I took a picture of some green fields and didn’t know what the crop was this one is Maize. The fields are still a very lush green except of the brown heads of the maize. They go for about 8 miles as far as the eye can see on both sides of the road, this has to be hundreds if not thousands of acres.
The next three pictures I have driven by well over 100 times and never took a picture of them. I have several of my photos sorted into collections and decided to start two more one of mailboxes, weird ones in the country, and one on signs.
There is nothing remarkable about any of these photos the only reason I even posted them was other than a few small crops these shots are all unprocessed. Probably the last ones you will see from me. I downloaded some free programs for post processing I was going to play with on my trip. The majority of photographers are doing it including all of the pros so who am I to stand in the way of progress.
When I finally got there and unloaded all of the stuff I run back and forth I was sleepy and took a two hour nap, woke up and ate half of a Subway foot long, one of the few fast foods that are actually healthy. Took another two hour nap then ate the other half. I piddled around for a while doing some reading, went to make my nightly protein shake with cottage cheese and some fruit and noticed I had forgotten to bring my blender. I could live with out that extra 90 grams of protein for a day and a half I just wouldn’t do my back exercises. I think I went to bed about 9PM, woke up about midnight wide awake and started to slug down my coffee. When I get up that early I wait a couple of hours before I take my first dose of meds for the day, which consist of my BP medicine and my big dose of anti anxiety medication both of these I have been taking for about 20 years. I went to take my meds couple of hours later and crap I had forgotten them. The only other time I had missed my BP meds by a couple of hours I ended up in the hospital. I fought off a major anxiety attack that was building packed my stuff jumped in the car and hauled ass home by the time I got there I was very dizzy and felt horrible,took my meds did some quick meditation some other tricks I have learned over the years and settled down.
Needless to say I didn’t relax a bit on my two days off and didn’t get much done yesterday. Lesson learned: make a packing list to assist my lousy memory for my trips !!
