Wednesday hodgepodge

1. When did someone last suggest you 'chill out'? Or, when did you last tell someone (or want to tell someone) to 'chill out'? Or, when did you last tell yourself to 'chill out'?

I am told at least weekly to 'chill out' or take a 'chill pill'.  I do get 'worked up' over things and I want to take a stand and I know I can't control the situation and I want to so desperately to change things so daughter usually says to me- "Mom, take a 'chill pill'!  But I don't want to take a 'chill pill'!

2. What most recently caused your heart to melt? 

When a person asked hub to baptize her this past Sunday.

An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered." G.K. Chesterton  

Your thoughts? When did you last experience either an adventure or an inconvenience? How did you see it at first, as an adventure or an inconvenience?  Does it feel the same in hindsigh…

January
Be still, and know that I am God.
Psalm 46:10

They kept predicting it.....the sky said so....but my knees weren't saying so......

SNOW
A red sky on Thursday morning which means 'sailors take warning'-remember this saying?  It was a gorgeous Thursday morning.


Thursday evening the weather report was calling for snow to begin Friday afternoon and we could see some measurable amounts.  This has been a very mild winter, in fact, this time last year my school system had missed 10 days-this year only two days due to extreme cold-no snow.  Hub and I had made plans to attend a high school basketball game.  We both enjoy going, and we were looking forward to watching some 'hoops'.
When I left for school, it was raining and the temps were in the 30's.  As I was taking my students to the library, I looked out and it was snowing not much but snowing.  About an hour later, the announcement was received-Schools would be Dismissing Three Hours Early!  …

1. American Idol is back for a 14th season. Are you watching? Have you ever watched? If you were to audition for the show (or were made to audition), what song would you sing?

Yes, I have watched American Idol a few years ago.  However, I don't watch now because I haven't cared for the judges in the past years.
"In the Morning when I Rise" because I have told myself this year, I will sing this song on the way to school-I am in a much better frame of mind.

2.  Mark Twain is quoted as saying, "If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first." 
So when did you last have to 'eat a frog'? Or two? How'd that work out?

I really try hard not to but here lately I have put off some things in order to accomplish other things I thought was more important at the time. Usually tell myself-might as well do it early and get it done with.

Weekend Rewind...




Temperatures have surely risen over the weekend.  We have been in  an artic cold blast for the past couple of days-temps have been in the single digits and the wind chill factor way below zero.  I had bus duty during this cold spell but I survived!!  Now the temps in is the 40's so a warm welcome to this nicer temps.

Mainly, a lazy weekend here. Saturday was spent running some errands that needed to be done but was put off mainly because of the holidays.
Later, that evening PJ's were on early and I fell asleep while reading a magazine-boy I must have been tired.  Hub says I never do this (fall asleep early) unless I am tired or getting sick.  I prefer that I was just a little tired.  It is hard to get back in the groove when one has been out for two weeks!

Speaking of sickness-our area has been listed as one of the top places of having the most cases of the flu!!  Not something to be known for!!  Daughter has been certainly busy at the pharmacy with all the …

Hello 2015!!

It has been a very warm 2015-unusually warm.  The temperatures have been in the 60's a far cry from our usual January with temps in the 30's.

Hub and I traveled to Pigeon Forge this weekend-a little get a way before all starts again.  The weather couldn't have been any more perfect.  We had a late dinner at hub's favorite place-The Blue Moose on Friday.



They do have the best wings in town; however, hubs and I opted for a hamburger-Imagine That!  The burger was fabulous-huge and juicy.
After dinner we went to the Island.
