Gift The Fossil - Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch 40mm Stainless Steel - #Fossilstyle #Ad

There are those people who always have their phone as an appendage. I am not one of them and sometimes it gets me in anxious trouble.

Everyone wants a response and there is so much to do and all I want sometimes is to not have to type in my password.

It's a phone, you have to carry it.

However, when you wear a watch, it's normal and free. Especially when you are wearing the Fossil - Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch 40mm Stainless Steel - Rose Gold!

Fossil Smartwatch

This watch is stylish, elegant, beautiful and can be worn well equally with any office wardrobe or exercise outfit! Now that's sporty blending well with fashion!

Fossil - Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch

When I take my kids to their after school activities, I usually get to run around the complex for my exercise and I'm usually monitored by my phone in a backpack. Now I use the Fossil smartwatch and it's so easy to keep track and data syncs easily with my android phone.
When I get a call, I can quickly see who it is and send a quick response without having to rummage through my backpack for my phone. Too bad I can't answer a call on my watch also!! Now that would be something else eh!

The only problem with this watch is that I will need to resize the bands to fit my wrist. :(


This wearable can do almost anything you want it to do: heart rate sensor for monitoring, work out tracking by GPS which works with third-party fitness apps, phone notifications, Google pay wallet, swim-proof and even customizable and personalized watch faces to select from!
Fossil - Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch

If you are looking at a budget you can get deals between $250 to $275 more or less, depending on which stores would have certain sales and specials.

Setup:
Too easy! I really did not have any hiccups setting it up at all. Just follow the plug, charge and use the information!

Favorite features:
I remember purchasing an armband so that I could record my steps with my phone, so I didn't have to constantly hold it in my hand. The band didn't fit. So imagine the delight in simply wearing a watch that monitors your exercises and also your heart rate a the same time while syncing the data to your phone! LOVE! 💓💓

Updating The Musical Eye

I've had two appointments with the retina specialist.
My eyes have healthy strength and the one good eye has good vision with glasses.

There are things in my eye and he mentions going in and doing another surgery to clean those out or just watching it and see if it gets worse or become bothersome to see.
As always I opt for the wait and see, after all, I just had a surgery on my eye earlier in the year.

So while there is quite a bit of floating things in my eye, much different from what was there before, I'll adjust. I can already feel my brain adjusting.
And I just have to remind myself not to bat at or try to catch the thing beside me. No. It's not a bug Colette, it's a floaty!
It's life.

Now to attend to this lawsuit coming up next week.

Thank you for praying for me. I really appreciate it. *HUGS*

Thank Thee For Thy Love So Pure And Free

December is shaping up to look quite busy and might be a tad overwhelming. I'm trying to drag my feet slowly and try not to accept too much on my plate, but when you have kids, life plots.

And I have or might have a possible court appearance if the other party doesn't settle. It's a car accident. They hit us so hard that if we weren't in our truck, we would have died. They were also in a truck.
The driver has settled, however I was shocked to learn that it's the passenger who is suing us. God help us. We already have not even enough to buy groceries weekly. Life eh. Life. Ahh I tell you, life.

But there will always be much to be thankful for.

I believe if sometimes I have the human support that I need, I'd respond better to the oncoming things, I find that these days, I tend to not respond too well. I'm worn down emotionally from having to keep strong through so much for so long.

Anyway, this song has been on my mind for a while. I haven't heard it in years and just so wanted to hear it again. I hope it blesses you!

End Game

When I watched The Infinity war, I have to tell you, I was quite upset at the ending, but I was glad that they actually surprised me. And it was an unsettling movie too because it made me think of the rapture.

Now I know some of y'all have no idea what the rapture is, but I say; just read you, some Revelations!

Peter's end was even more heartbreaking because I believe that is how people feel when they know they are dying and they aren't ready to leave.

So it's good to see that perhaps they will make me happy with a continuation of a resolution to evil. Yes you Thanos boy, you evil alright :)

So see the new trailer coming:
What do you think? Do you watch the Marvel movies?

Classic Thanksgiving In A Contented Way

I hope y'all had a lovely Thanksgiving with family or alone.
My kids and I enjoyed a quiet and relaxing time together. And as usual, they do enjoy my cooking and I am glad that they do.

Now the leftovers are even more delightful! And soon there will be soups from the bones!

How did y'all do?

I was flipping the channel and saw the little kids dancing with the stars and heard this song. I like it.
