Thankful Sunday, March 2, 2014

Thankful Sundays highlight a few Gratitude Journal entries from the previous week that have the most meaning. And maybe a granddaughter picture, because I am always thankful for both of my granddaughters.

I’m thankful for ….

… several sound sleeping nights in a row

… sticky pads to catch scorpions

… my mom celebrating her birthday on Friday

… a working turntable and old vinyl records

3 Quick Thoughts on Saturday, February 22, 2014

  • The week was not as productive as I had hoped, being troubled with sleepless nights and sinus/neck issues. A visit to the chiropractor on Wednesday seemed to be most helpful, though. I did get Quicken current, at least our personal account. The Estate file and the Business file will be tackled (& completed) on Monday. Unfortunately, very little else was accomplished.
  • Today Bill and I are driving to Tucson so he can take a certification test. We usually go to Phoenix, as they had a testing center open on the weekends, but it seems as if that testing center has lost their contract with Microsoft. Instead, he found one in Tucson that is open on Saturday. Nice for us as it is much closer, will make for a less stressful day, but not so nice because I won’t get to combine the trip with a visit with my cousin who lives in Chandler. We will have to schedule a special day in March for the two of us to meet somewhere.
  • This week has been Speed Week at Daytona, leading up to the Daytona 500 race Sunday. The events held so far have been quite fun to watch and I anticipate a very good race tomorrow. You know where I will be – on the couch, crochet hook in hand, watching the race on TV.


What will you be doing this weekend?

Weekly Overview February 17, 2014

Ironwood tree Outside My Window the ironwood tree is beginning to bud. The morning clouds are beginning to clear away, leaving behind wispy remnants in the blue sky.

I am thinking about blog posts, blog schedules, and Quicken.

I am thankful for being able to go back to bed this morning for more sleep, which helped chase away the tummy blechs from last night’s dinner.

From the kitchen leftover pork chops and sauerkraut for the guys, asparagus and baked zucchini (with marina sauce) for all of us, along with a large salad for me (after I get more lettuce washed).

I am hoping Bill’s new task begins soon and continued progress on the job hunt front.

I am reading Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin.

I am busy creating Kat’s purple Wrapped in Lace shawl.

I am hearing Meet Me In Montana, by Dan Seals & Marie Osmond (listening to wsmonline.com), along with the house air conditioning unit.

Around the house & garden the dining room table has print-outs of recipes scattered about that need to be put into their appropriate binders (Vegetarian & Vegan, South Beach, Recipes to Try). There is still a good bit of the front yard to finish weeding (dried remnants from last summer along with a few newly appearing weeds) and the garden containers in the backyard still need cleaning out.

In other news my knee is feeling some better. For the past week I’ve been wearing my Dr. Scholl’s shoes (my dancing shoes), rather than my sneakers. I really need to get to a shoe store and replace those sneakers.

Weekly Overview A quiet week with the emphasis on finishing Quicken (so close to being up-to-date). I also plan to finish setting up a Blog post schedule, and maybe make some progress on a house cleaning/daily routine schedule. I need to make an appointment to get the Neon’s oil change/tire rotation done. I also need to make appointments for both Bill and I to visit the chiropractor. Thursday evening we will be watching the Budweiser Duel (NASCAR). And it looks like Bill & I might be making the trek to Phoenix on Saturday so Bill can do another certification test. Sunday will definitely be spent at home watching the Daytona 500.
