ヾ(＾∇＾) Hi everyone and to the new readers here. What are you up to today?
I have Tibetan spa music playing on the laptop here while I munch on a Sargento snack pack and sip on my organic, green tea. The husband got me to take a cat nap earlier to sleeping music played by Google Home. Are you able to fall asleep quickly? I think I usually take about 15-20 minutes to settle down and to relax. When we say goodnight to our Google Home she plays crickets usually but we switch it to either waves or rain; I say the two of us have been spoiled.
Well my week was filled with cleaning and organizing besides working out and dropping off/picking up the teen at/from Open Court:
- Kitchen (M) – moved containers to the cabinet by the fridge, dumped expired medications safely, moved vitamins and OTC meds to the shelf above the spices, and all cookbooks and appliance manuals to the third shelf + got the thermoses all in one place
- Buffet (Tu) – finally moved the platters to the buffet + paper plates and plastic cups
- Sewing Stuff (Tu) – cleaned out bins and reorganized the 3-tier container, filled up the new thread organizer, put away the ironing board, organized fabric stash and their distribution among the bins
- Living Room (Tu) – dusted, cleared out end table, & organized current WIP’s for coffee table storage
- Room (F) – dusted, washed sheets, put away yarn remnants, cleared off and tidied up night stands which are less clutter free
In addition on Thursday, I ran to Costco (yes, again) to pick up fruit and snacks for Saturday after dropping off the oldest and before working out. After I showered I decided to run to Joann and then to TJ’s so Friday I wouldn’t have to go out after the elliptical.
Then Saturday our crew had an awesome day with company:
My BFF drove down from the upper, east bay with her two daughters and hung out for a couple of hours. I created a salad bar along with a platter of fruit and snacks for the kids. All four girls had dinosaur-shaped nuggets also. The husband hung out with us for a bit before going off to catch up on work and while our kids played together inside and outside. It was lovely to catch up with her and to unload about things. I scored big points with my nieces who loved that Auntie Stef had all of these snacks to share and the fact that they could choose dessert from four, different boxes of ice cream!
I finished two, Kindle books recently:
Dirty (Dive Bar #1) by Kylie Scott
The female lead was spunky! The characters in here are flawed and every day Joe’s like us. There is profanity, which I personally don’t mind as I have a potty mouth myself, and they keep it real. I was highly entertained with this book. For example: A fellow friend was explaining how his wife was currently reading a romance novel and how that was a good thing:
Page 253, “with all the zest of a manic street preacher. “You have no idea the amount of good they can do for you between the sheets and on the streets. If you love your girl? Buy her books.”
The only thing I was disappointed in was the ending which was slightly predictable was rushed into. I look forward to reading about the next Dive Bar member.
The Chase (Fox and O’Hare #2) by Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg
This second installment was entertaining as well as the first one. I like the snarkiness and the bond Kate and her dad have:
(59%) “Something to look forward to,” Kate said. “I moved into Megan’s guest room for a couple days. They’re fumigating my apartment building.”
“Your nieces will love that. You’re their favorite aunt.”
“So I’ve been told, And I can quality time with you, too. You can teach me how to make improvised explosives out of household cleaning supplies.”
“I’d love to,” Jake said. “We can include the grandkids and make it a family affair. We’ll just have ot wait until Megan and Roger aren’t around. They’re very uptight about making explosives in the house.”
So I’ve been just chillin’ like a villain after our company left yesterday. I pretty much read on the couch until the dames brought home food from the neighbor’s party. I oinked out, feeling very guilty, which led to an hour sweat session on the elliptical this morning. I’m off to catch up on your blogs! Thank you for your visits and for thinking about us. The youngest is healing well; apparently it was a burn. I was all better by mid-week, having gotten rid of the mucus that made me cough. Thanks for poppin’ in with me today. TTYS.
