Thankful Thursday...


  I am thankful...that I started my morning off with a phone conversation with Trouble.  She called to tell me that she would really like to become a counselor/psychiatrist.  I told her that it would take a lot of school & hard-work but that if that's what she really wanted to do, she could do it.  I told her that I wanted her to look at school options & give me a report as to what she finds.  I also told her for the millionth time, that she needs to get herself a job as well.

  I am thankful...that last night was a nice easy night at home.  After going right from vacation to working, especially after an exhausting vacation, was difficult.  I know, listen to my lil sob story.  Ha, ha!  It was just nice to grab supper, do a few things around the house that needed to be done & get into bed at about 8:30 to read & such.

  I am thankful...that I'll be able to see my uncle tonight.  He's visiting from Dallas & he's leaving already tomorrow.  Luckily, he didn't have anything planned for tonight so I'm taking supper out to my grandparents' to visit with them all for a couple of hours.

  I am thankful...that tomorrow is already Friday & that I have some plans with my cousin, Jennifer, on Saturday night.  We're gonna go to a wine/cheese tasting & I've invited Jill to join us & it kinda sounds like Paul is interested as well which should be fun.  We joke that Jill is one of his Sister Wives & that Jennifer is his next wife.  Ha, ha!  Should be a good time...especially the cheese tasting part.  I LOVE CHEESE!

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.


My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Another month starting with another Currently linkup - awhoo hoo!  So, what does Anne have going on this month?  Well, come along & check it out!  :)

Gathering..."recipes" for my new oil diffuser.  Lately, it's been all about the eucalyptus because Paul has been sick for a week now & I got it a lil bit.  I told him that I'm gonna have a buy a new bottle of eucalyptus before I get a chance to crack any of my other bottles. 

Making...a whole lot of nothing.  We really have not had a sit-down meal in awhile because one of us has been busying doing something or we just don't feel like cooking.  Tomorrow, however, I do have on the menu to make chicken & rice with green beans.  So, we have that.

Sipping...coffee with Sugar Cookie creamer.  It's delish but I am ready for something with some caramel in it.  I love me some caramel.  Yummy!

Following...lots on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.  My favorite to watch on Instagram/Snapchat is Taylor.  She cracks m…

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…
