Weekend Rewind....

Weekend Rewind....

Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Elizabeth Lawrence is quoted as saying, 'Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn." So have you done just that? And what did you leave undone in order to do so?

Nope--this is the biggest criticism I get from my family.  My family usually tells me that I need to stop and smell the roses.

2. Since we're talking turning...what's one thing you feel you're doing 'every time you turn around'?

Paperwork, laundry, cleaning, putting 'little' items away for future bride-(haven't started anything major yet), Oh My!  I named more than one and I could go on and on and on....

3. How hard is it for you to 'turn the other cheek?'

That depends on the situation.  Mostly, I am okay with turning the other cheek but it is really difficulty for me to turn the other cheek when the behavior is repetitive.  This was our discussion Sunday evening during Bible Study.  How can you deal with a situation when t…

Weekend Rewind....

Another misty, cloudy, cool weekend.  This year, October has been very wet.  Usually, October is a dry month, but so far we have record rainfall.

Saturday, was the day to just curl up on the couch and read a good book.  Which I didn't do-because I just couldn't make myself do it.  Mainly because I know for the next two weeks I will not be home a single night so instead of curling up on the couch and reading I tried to do some cleaning and laundry.  This was okay since the weather was not the type of weather one would like to be out in.

Sunday-the sun was shining.  After church we brought a couple cutie pies home with us-both grandkids.

I think he was a little tired....

We did capture some pics in the sunshine...

'Little Man' was riding his truck..when-oh no-the truck would not go into reverse.  Hub and him began working on it.  Of course, 'Little Man' wanted to make an appointment and have his truck fixed.  Hub convinced him to let him give …

1. What's your favorite time of day? Why?

I enjoy the early morning.  While the rest of the world is asleep, I enjoy the quietness as I have my coffee and read my devotions.  A big change from my younger years when I didn't think the world was awake until 9 or 10.  I use to be a night person, and in some respect I still am, but by 12:00 or 1:00am I am ready for bed.  

2. Waffle iron, toaster, coffee maker, mixer, blender...which small appliance would you say most needs replacing in your house? 

The only one I have-coffee maker.

3. It's National Grouch Day (October 15)...what's something that makes you feel grouchy?

Not having enough time to complete all the things I want to.

4. Ever been to Canada? Is that a country you'd like to visit? According to Trip Advisor, the top ten best destinations in Canada are-Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, Victoria, Calgary, Niagara on the Lake, Niagara Falls, Whistler, and Halifax. Which city would you most like to see?

Weekend Rewind....

Birthday Celebration andFall Festival...

Little Man spent three nights with us while his dad is out of town.  A busy one can imagine.
I must admit, I am out of the routine of getting a little one up and ready for school-when I need to get ready myself.  I set my alarm clock extra early so I could get  us both headed out the door at the right time.  Little Man was a sleepy head on Friday morning-hard for him to go to sleep on  Thursday night because he was so excited about his first field trip to the pumpkin patch on Friday. Having an alarm go off and turning on the lights to his room did the trick!  We both made it out the door right on schedule.  He was excited about his school field trip and had a skip in his step as he got out of the vehicle.
I made it to school-and had a few minutes before my students came-whew!! how on earth I use to do this when my  girls were little is beyond me. Later that morning, the rain came-no monsoon is more like it.  It w…

1. Do you manage your own money or do you have a financial planner who helps in some way? Do those kinds of conversations stress you out? A lot or a little?

We have a great friend, who is our financial planner-.  Having conversations with him, stresses me out to the MAX!!

2. The second week of October is Pet Peeve Week. Off the top of your head, share TWO of your current pet peeves.
Pet Peeve #1--People pretending to be something they are not.  I know a person who does not have custody of her two children-but claims to love another man's child and proceeds to tell this other man's child that she does not have any children-only had her picture made with them.  I don't understand why someone would do emotional damage to a young child.
Pet Peeve #2--People who are always negative!  It is very hard at work to be positive when sometimes you are surrounded with negativity.

3. What is one thing you'd like to learn right now, this very week if you could?
