For Today… July 6th, 2015

Outside my window… Breakfast out on the deck; the birds are chirping; the pup is stalking a poor little squirrel in the tree; right now its 63 degrees.

I am thinking… about all I have to do today, and it makes me more tired than I all ready am!

I am thankful… for my freedom and for those that have sacrificed so that I may be free. This is a picture of my son that he has on his facebook page

I am wearing… a brown sun dress and a pink tank top

I am creating… dish towels, dish cloths…and hopefully some American Girl doll clothes

I am wondering… about this interview I have tomorrow. Will it be more interesting of a job than what I have now; will it challenge me more?

I am reading… and studying Psalm 119

I am hoping… for a change; and that this change will be for the better for us.

I am learning… that I am not all that into the fireworks anymore. Sure they are pretty an all… but these crazy fools that feel the need to waste their money on them and let them off all hours of the night is wearing thin on my nerves!! Too many nights of little sleep has let me very cranky!

In my kitchen… Menu for the week:
Monday ~ spaghetti/garlic bread; and strawberry shortcakes for dessert
Tuesday ~ ham and egg bake
Wednesday ~ leftovers
Thursday ~ pizza
Friday ~ brats, beans and potato salad
Saturday ~ date night ~ craving Mexican food

A favorite quote for today…

A peek into one of my days… This is my Lici girl…. she was still very tired yesterday after a long night of the neighbors letting off fireworks.

One of my favorite things… getting my nails done.

Hungry


Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!

Saturday 9: Hungry (1966)
… because it’s 4th of July Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

1) Are you eating anything as you respond to these questions? No, but I am thinking about going to get some ice cream from Dairy Queen

2) Paul Revere and the Raiders performed in Revolutionary garb. Have you ever worked at a job that required you to wear a uniform? yes; McDonald’s, a grocery store, a med center, an urgent care

3) The “Paul Revere” of Raiders fame was born Paul Revere Dick in Boise, Idaho. What else is Idaho known for? potatoes

4) The original Paul Revere was a silversmith by trade, known for making church bells. Can you hear church bells from your home? no

5) In April, 1775, Paul Revere literally rode into history when he galloped into the night, spreading the word that “the British are coming.” Name another Revolutionary War-era hero. I don’t know

6) Historians tell us that Revere’s famous “midnight ride” actually took place between 9:00 and 10:00 PM. When is your usual bedtime? 10ish during the week, midnight ish on the weekends.

7) Earlier this year, officials from Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts uncovered a time capsule buried in 1795 by Paul Revere and Gov. Sam Adams. It included coins and newspapers. If you were to bury a time capsule that reflects American life in 2015, what would it include? iPhones, Android phones, other electronic devices

8) Will you attend a fireworks display during the 4th of July weekend? probably not, the hubby doesn’t want to go

9) What’s your preferred way to celebrate Independence Day — a parade, a picnic, or both? both

 photo c1e9506e-76b7-4f51-8581-b5719aba57e9_zpsmxsyzb44.jpg

I am thinking… that I should get up and go get some breakfast.

I am thankful… for the friendships I have in former coworkers. It was so nice catching up with Mel and Stacey yesterday.

I am wearing… gray yoga pants and a blue tank top

I am creating… towels, dishcloths, heating bags, hats, etc….

I am going… to be making a call to get signed up for a craft show. This means that all of my spare/free time, will be consumed with making so many things, to have a nice stock pile to sell!

I am wondering… about going to school. I have wanted to go to cosmetology school for sometime now. I want to, but at the same not…as I don’t know if I want to incur the debt. Being an adult sometimes is just too hard.

In my kitchen… Menu for the week:
Monday ~ spaghetti, garlic bread and a salad
Tuesday ~ burgers, fries and fruit
Wednesday ~ omelets, sausage and toast with homemade strawberry jelly
Thursday ~ pizza
Friday ~ bruschetta chicken and a salad
Saturday ~ not sure yet…something on the grill

A favorite quote for today…

One of my favorite things… fresh baked chocolate chip cookies — the ooey gooey kind!

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday ~ housework, yard work, crocheting
Tuesday ~ crocheting
Wednesday ~ work
Thursday ~ work
Friday ~ grocery shopping, light housework, and not sure what else for the day/night
Saturday ~ 4th of July — maybe a parade early in the day, then fireworks later
Sunday ~ church

From the board room… From my Mmmm…Let’s Eat board. I had this at a graduation open house for the first time, and boy was it really good! I am going to attempt to make it.

Once home, I worked on some crochet projects, took a small nap, made dinner then headed over to Robyn’s. We tried to have a fire, but it was way too windy. So we hung out with Cohen and played Yahtzee.

Saturday ~ Ran some errand with the hubby, then worked on the windows and some crochet projects. Hung out at home binge watching some shows that Christopher got for me.

Sunday ~ church and lunch with the hubby. Home to relax for a while, then it was off to meet up with Mel and Stacey for dinner. So nice to catch up with them.

Let me know if you play along.

I Miss You

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!

Saturday 9: I Miss You (1997)

… because Smellyann suggested it

Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

1) In this song, Bjork knows what she’s looking for in a mate, she just hasn’t met him yet. If you are/were still looking for The One, what two qualities would you hope he/she possessed? Loyalty and compassion and I have that it my guy!!

2) The lyrics ask if you believe “that a dream can come true.” Do you believe that dreams come true if you wish hard enough? I do

3) Bjork turns 50 this year. Do you treat “milestone” birthdays differently? Or to you, is your age just a number? We do them up differently…. go a little more overboard on them.

4) Bjork was always highly musical. At the tender age of 6 she began studying classical piano and flute. Sam is impressed because at the age of 6, she was still trying to master tying her shoes. Do you consider yourself musical? not really…. I am trying my hand at learning the piano, but its not really clicking with me.

5) She was born and raised in Reykjavik, Iceland. While the city is known for its bar scene, beer was banned there until 1995. How often do drink beer? never, don’t like the taste of it.

6) 66ÂșNORTH is one of Iceland’s biggest employers. This clothier makes quality outdoor wear and this time of year they sell a lot of durable rainwear. Do you have a raincoat? I do not

7) In 1997, when this song was popular in clubs, Titanic was popular in theaters. Sam saw it and yes, she cried. How about you? Have you seen the saga of Jack and Rose? Did you enjoy it? I never got into Titanic, only watched pieces of it here and there. Never watched it from start to finish.

8) Also in 1997, singer John Denver died. Name a John Denver song. Take me Home Country Roads

9) Random question: If you had the opportunity to sky dive, would you take it? No, I am afraid of heights, and the fear of falling scares the crap out of me!
