Excruciating Headache

An excruciating headache woke me up this morning.  My body was feeling so heavy and I was nauseous.  I wasn't able to do anything except laying on the couch and rest while my darling daughter was playing play doh and doll house.

The weather was very pleasant because it's in the 70 degrees.  Though it was breezy, it was a great day to go outside and play.  I couldn't get my body to cooperate.  I took a pain reliever to get rid of the headache so I can at least watch my little girl ride her bike in the driveway.  But I was feeling tired and weak.  

My strength came back slowly as the day went by.  I managed to prepare dinner for us and loaded the laundry into the washer and dryer.  Because it's Thanksgiving Day week, I want lessen the chores because we are going to our folks on Thanksgiving Day.  Gladly I am feeling better as of this moment.

Access Your Remote Worksite With Temporary Roadways

Don’t let any terrain keep you from where you need to be. Even the most inaccessible working areas can be reached with temporary roadways from Quality Mat Company. When you’re looking for a suitable surface, temporary access roads made from interlocking ground protection mats are an ideal solution. 

Before the 1970s, when Quality Mat Company introduced this method of road building, site operators were forced to take drastic measures to arrive at their construction location. Using aggregate road material or fill was one option, while some contractors chose to use a more labor-intensive process of laying individual timber boards alongside one another until a surface was created. Work schedules for projects continued to grow larger and longer.

Once interlocking mats were used to build temporary roadways, everything changed for the better. East to install and remove, these temporary access roads allowed not only shorter set up and removal of job sites, but also faster travel time for heavy machinery.
Distributing weight across the network of mats allowed the mats to provide a more stable base without damaging the ground beneath. With their laminated finish, these interlocking mats will stand up to years of heavy use on any type of job site.

To order your mats and create a temporary roadway to your next construction site, contact Quality Mat Company today at 800-227-8159.

Weekend Snapshots: Queen's Tea Party At The Rose Festival

It was a very pleasant day this past weekend and my daughter and I visited the folks in Tyler.  My little one was very happy to see her grandparents, as usual.  

My mother-in-law informed me ahead of time that the annual Rose Festival is on going that weekend. I haven't seen the Rose Festival in Tyler since I got here in Texas.  That Saturday's event was the Rose Queen's Tea party.  The Rose Queen 2014 and her court were gathered at the Rose Garden to meet and greet the public.  So only the three of us went - mom, DD, and me.

There's tea served on one table.  Bottled water and cookies on the other ones.  The cookies tasted really good.  Mom said that the Rose Festival theme varies every year.  This year's is circus theme.  So all the extravagant gowns are designed with the circus inspired in them.

 I was in awe with the Rose Queen's and the duchesses' gowns.  They were all creatively designed and made.  I bet those gowns were extremely expensive.
