It’s another new week, and time for a fresh start. There is always so much to do, and so little time to slow down and just enjoy the day. But, work must go on, and I might as do it with a little bit of joy. Well, a lot of joy because cleaning is my least favorite thing in the world to do. It is a necessary task, but I still find it difficult to do.
FOR TODAY July 27, 2014
Outside my window…Mostly cloudy. It must have rained overnight, because everything is wet. I hope it holds off because my husband, oldest son, and Pap went fishing. Pap is 86, so I don’t want him to slip and fall. Hubby will take care of him.
I am thinking…that I really need to get this house under control. And keep it that way.
I am thankful… I am thankful for lots of things. My hubby, kids, our home, my IL’s, Turkey Hill Iced Tea. You get the point.
In the kitchen… Working on getting some new crockpot recipes for the summer. Not just the days I work, but other days when we are super busy. I really want to make something in the crockpot involving jerk chicken. Yum!
I am wearing… my pj’s. I have to work later today, so it is just easier to keep them on until I have to get ready.
I am creating… A blog that I am proud of! I have been working really hard to turn it into the blog I have always imagined. It is extremely hard work, and causes tears sometimes. But who ever says blogging is easy just has no idea!
I am going…To get the house cleaned up for our friends. Well, for our family, too. Okay, let’s just say it needs to be cleaned up period. Didn’t I mention that earlier in this entry?
I am wondering… If time would slow down just a bit so I can enjoy the summer. I want to spend more time with the family on our deck.
I am reading…Believe it or not, absolutely nothing!
I am hoping… That I can create some new recipe posts for my blog. I am ready to step out of my comfort zone and try some new things. Even if I have to taste test them myself!
I am looking forward to…My next day off. Which isn’t till Wednesday. But I can’t sleep in because I have to take my newly returned Equinox to the dealership to fix a leaking air conditioning. I just can’t catch a break!
I am learning…that sometimes you just need to take a risk to get what you want!! And you will never know if you don’t ask.
Around the house… Ummmmm. Get it clean is my main concern.
I am pondering… how I got so lucky at work. I love my new job, even when people ask dumb questions(do you sell books?) and parents don’t watch their children and they trash your entire department
A favorite quote for today… “Can you help me? Me:Sure! I am looking for a book. Me:Okay Dead silence from customer” Okay, so I have to read your mind to get the book title?
One of my favorite things… Having the day off with my family!
A peek into my day…
Missing the beach!
