Linking up with our friend Peggy to share my week. It seems like my life is so busy that the only way I am going to be able to blog and stay on course is to get back to my Daybook; with prompts to help me out.

Looking out my window: the sun is shining but it is deceiving.  It’s still cold. I can hear the birds calling spring to hurry up!

I am thinking: that Monday comes around way too fast.

I am thankful: overall good health and the ability to enjoy life.

One of my favorite things: sitting on the sofa on Sunday and looking out at the snow…

I am creating: a new workout routine.  Time to shake it up.

I am wearing: my dark colored Silver jeans,  copper colored top, and cowboy boots.

I am reading: Tha Good Earth

I am listening to: the furnace running

I am hoping: our “meeting” with our daughter and boyfriend goes well tonight.

I am learning: that everyone needs their space.

Looking forward to: better weather to ride our new RZR.

A moment in my day: there really isn’t much to talk about here.  My days are all the same.

Closing note: this weekend felt pretty unproductive. We will be going back to the lake to view more condos this next weekend.  At least that’s our plan right now.

Looking out my window: it’s dark, foggy, and above freezing this morning.  It will be raining soon. 

I am thinking: about my work week.  I was off all of last week except Friday.  This week both my boss’s will be out until Thursday.  I’m going to have a busy week getting caught up.

I am thankful: for a job that allows me plenty of time off.

One of my favorite things: these days it’s any temperature above freezing!

I am creating: in pinterest I am collecting things I want to do in retirement; which I hope is just over three years.

I am wearing: my bath robe and a towel on my head. 😊 getting ready for work.

I am reading: The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro

I am listening to: the quiet.  Hubby gets up an hour after me.

I am hoping: spring gets here soon.

I am learning: to speak up when I don’t agree without sounding like a “B”.

Looking forward to: time with our daughter and her family.

Shared quote:

A moment in my day: my days are very routine.  There isn’t anything exciting enough to mention here. I may remove this prompt.

Closing note: I am asking prayers for our daughters “mother in law”. She is having heart surgery this week. She is a widow in her mid 50’s.

Looking out my window: it’s still dark even though I am posting over an hour  later than usual.  It’s 32 degrees and rain is moving in.  Will warm into the 40′ today. 

I am thinking: about my hair appointment tomorrow.  I need more high and low lights. My hair is too dark.

I am thankful: for this day off work.

One of my favorite things: watching a movie of a book I really enjoyed.

I am creating: new healthy recipe ideas in pinterest. I’m tired of eating the same thing every week.

I am wearing: my warm house robe and wool socks. Soon I will be getting ready to take grandma to the doctor.

I am reading: After You by Jojo Moyes

Looking forward to: next Monday,  our vacation in Mexico!

Shared quote:

A moment in my day: we rode the RZR around Saturday.  Got to break it in a little before we hit the trails.

Closing note: Our oldest daughter contacted us this weekend.  She wants to get married and wants us to reconcile so that we can be a family again! We responded that is what we want too and would love to see then and talk a bit. She’s been slow to respond (must have been working all weekend). But there is hope and hubby is determined to clear this up! I will have my family back soon! Still a road to travel.  Please keep us in your prayers!

Looking out my window: I will be glad when it is light in the mornings.  This dark is depressing!  Very cold.  It’s not supposed to warm up much today.  Cloudy and looks windy!

I am thinking: MEXICO

I am thankful: We finally sold….

One of my favorite things: My Sunday afternoon on the couch with my tea and laptop.

I am creating: I have intentions of creating an organized decluttered kitchen but I’m not really into it at the moment.

I am reading: The Sound and The Fury by William Faulkner (I think I started this once before and tabled it…)

I am listening to: light classical music on my Directv music channels.

I am hoping: for some sunshine soon.

I am learning: no matter how well you think you taught your children they are going to do what they are going to do and there is nothing you can really do or say about it.  Our son…does not have the work ethic of our oldest or even his biological sister.  They were all raised the same way but they don’t always turn out the same.

Looking forward to: Spring time!  I know it’s a ways off yet but I have to look forward to something. 😀

Shared quote: a reminder to our son!

A moment in my day: It’s not a very exciting life I lead… It’s pretty much the same thing day in and day out.  We are very routine driven as we always were even with a house full!  So maybe routine wasn’t for the kids after all! LOL!

Closing note: I will try to be adding another post each week… maybe Thankful Thursday or Friday Faves again… Gradually adding more back in if I can keep up with the two I am doing now and remembering to review my books at my book blog too.

Looking out my window: wow! The difference a week makes!  It’s cold, dark and snowy. We got about 6 inches over the weekend. 

I am thinking: I could handle this every weekend if hubby could stay home.  He gets stir crazy very quickly.

I am thankful: for some down time.

One of my favorite things: watching the birds at the feeders.

I am creating: this time last year it was tax stuff.  Now I am just pinning lots if fun homesteading ideas for after I retire in a few years.

I am wearing: blue jeans, long sleeved shirt, and tennis shoes.

A moment in my day: 

Closing note: so I know my prayers are heard.  Saturday night we ran to town to grab a bite to eat and ran into our oldest daughters boyfriend and his son.  I pointed them out to hubby and he went over and shook his hand and said hello.  It’s a great start and I know was hard for my husband.

Looking out my window: still dark but it’s a mild morning. Slight breeze.  Can’t believe the temperatures this January.

A moment in my day: an afternoon walk with Jada this past weekend.

Closing note: took grandma to orthopedic doctor last week.  Her wrist was set well enough so the casted it. She will begin occupational therapy this week to help with her balance and keeping her legs strong while she is stuck in a wheelchair because she can’t use a Walker.

My doctor said I have an impingement in my ac and rotator cuff.  Take 30 rest from weight training and see how I do.  I also have a knot in my throat that is affecting my voice and swallowing. This week I have to have an ultrasound.  Praying that it is nothing.

One of my favorite things: sun, water, and sand.

I am creating: nothing at the moment.

I am wearing: probably the same as last week at this time, my robe.  I will be getting dressed for work when I get this post done.  Then it will be blue jeans, boots, and a sweater.

Shared quote:

A moment in my day: Our Saturday out in our UTV.

Closing note: It’s so hard to believe that 2018 is almost over.  I’ve been thinking on my goals for 2019.  I don’t think I will make a list of things that must be done.  I think I will make goals each month and try to complete those projects or reading lists as the year goes on.  That way I don’t feel like such a failure.  My reading goal is still going to be 60 books even though I feel a little short of that this year.

I am learning: my communication skills need to improve. Even if it makes me appear harsh.

Looking forward to: our trip to Mexico.

Shared quote:

A moment in my day:

Closing note: My time with my family will be with me a long time! It was so good to have them all together for a few hours! Why does life have to be so busy? Everyone working different shifts… I guess it is still part of me adjusting to empty nest.

Looking out my window:  The sun (or daylight anyway) is beginning to peak over the eastern horizon. The trees all stand straight and still.  Nothing is moving out there this early cold “fall” morning.  It’s a wet morning.

I am thinking: I am tired of the news being on.  We go in spirts; total news on the television for weeks then we shut it off and have nothing for a time.

I am thankful: for our bi-weekly housekeeper.  It allows me to workout regularly.

One of my favorite things: a great workout that I feel results for days.

I am creating: our travel plans!

Closing note: I’ll be on the couch tonight watching our winning all time favorite KC Chiefs!  Hubby has a school board meeting.  It will be a nice quiet night Barbara! 🙂  I’m not ready for winter!   We booked our Mexico trip this past Saturday.  We will soon be on white sandy beaches instead of this frozen white Midwest!

Looking out my window: It’s getting light earlier all the time but when I write this post it is still dark outside. 

I am thinking: that I am glad I posted about my routine because I’m more “accountable” to you all now. If I don’t get up and get going I feel like I’m not doing just what I told ya’ all that I do.  Does that make any sense? 🙂

I am thankful: for sunshine!

One of my favorite things: bwhahahah, SUNSHINE!

I am creating: (created) this weekend we worked in the flower beds!

I am wearing: Still in my bathrobe.

I am reading: Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie

I am listening to: On The Road by Jack Kerouac (UGH this one is hard…)

I am hoping: for some results of my recent hard workouts.  I’ve really stepped it up and stopped sneaking in an unhealthy snack.

I am learning: more about dementia than I thought I would ever need to know.  Grandma is having quite a few “lost” days lately.  She can’t remember most things that she is told.  Conversation on anything current just doesn’t stick.

Shared quote: 

Hahaha! This was funny and I had to share it!

A moment from my day: 

Closing note: I can’t tell you what this sunshine and warm days have done for my mood! Now if these Oak trees would just get on board and start leafing out!  They are always the last but come one!!! it’s May!

I am thinking: I stayed up too late every night this weekend.  Including last night. (think I am holding off the coming of Monday! LOL!)

I am thankful: For a beautiful Saturday that I was able to cut my grass.

One of my favorite things: The smell of fresh-cut grass.

I am reading: Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie

I am listening to: On The Road by Jack Kerouac

I am hoping: to finish Murder at the Vicarage this week.

I am learning: to be comfortable in my own skin.

In my kitchen: much of the same.  Only healthy chicken and fish with green veggies.

Shared quote:  I feel this is true as long as you don’t come across as conceited.

A moment from my day: Took Grandma out for doctor appointments on Friday and we had lunch at Cracker Barrel.

Closing note:  Grandma got a good report from the Orthopedic surgeon on Friday.  He is very happy with how well she has done and does not need to see her again unless she has issues.  She is to continue therapy until they see no more progress but continue to use the walker at all times for added stability.  Her General practitioner said she looks good and vitals are all great!  Now her appointments will all come due in the spring and I won’t have to get her out in the winter months.  We also picked up her new hearing aids.  I’m so happy that she can hear again!  Conversation is so much easier.

It looks like I’m starting another new pattern… being late with my SWDB post!  I just don’t take the time to prep on Sunday and then Monday mornings I have been over sleeping.  Oh well, here is a post and I’m glad to be a part of this one!  Hope you all have a great week!

I am thankful:for a restful weekend overall.

Shared quote: 

A moment from my day: 

Some pictures finally put into place.

Closing note: I’m late today!  This has been a very productive yet relaxing weekend.  I worked hard Saturday then worked and relaxed a bit on Sunday.  Most of my house is in order.  I can live without stressing when I walk into a room.  Hope you all have a great week!

Looking out my window: It’s starting to lighten up earlier again.  It’s cool this morning but we are supposed to warm up into the 50’s today.

I am thinking: I like having Fridays off in April but I dread going to work on Monday.  I will start my week very much behind and spend the next four days trying to catch up!

I am thankful: Spring will be showing herself this week!

One of my favorite things: My to-do list for Grandma checked off!

I am creating: a cozy comfortable Master bedroom.

I am wearing: blue jeans, spring-ish sweater, loafers.

I am reading: Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie

I am listening to: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I am hoping: to improve my reading this week!

I am learning: to let go of things that aren’t really necessary.  I’ve kept things over the years that don’t really mean anything.  At least they don’t now.  And some of it I can’t remember why I kept it to begin with.

In my kitchen: we have eaten out too much this past week.  I really need to start cooking something here at home.

Shared quote: 

A moment from my day: We started feeding the fish in our ponds last Thursday.  The catfish are starting to move about!

Closing note: The yard is starting to green up.  Remember that we fertilized and seeded the yard a few weeks back.  Now I am looking forward to these trees greening up.  There were tiny purple flowers in the field the other day.  Then we had some snow.  How confused our trees must be! 🙂

I am reading: Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie

I am listening to: Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares

I am hoping:  for some sunshine this week.

I am learning: to TRUST (it’s my word of the year)

In my kitchen: we bought an air fryer.  Also known as a greaseless fryer.  I love it!  I made wings for hubby and his co-workers last Thursday and they turned out great!  I can’t wait to try fish in it.

Shared quote: 

A moment from my day: they are all the same lately.  Working on projects around the house. I haven’t had time to take any pictures either.

Closing note: Grandma update: It’s a very long story… Nursing home took her to the doctor without letting me know last Wednesday because her incision was infected.  When I found out Wednesday evening I moved her out right away.  Not only did they not care for the wound but she only had one bath a week since being there.  She was miserable and felt like a prisoner.  I called the assisted living facility and told them I wanted to get her back as soon as possible.  She said, “we’ll come get her tonight!”.  SO, I helped them move her and her clothes back over but I had a few words with the staff before I left.  They tried to tell me that she hadn’t been released by the doctor.  I told them I didn’t need a release to take her out of there.  She is much happier and I have contacted the surgeon about getting physcial therapy started at her home.  I’m so happy she is happy!

I am wearing: blue jeans, a light blue blouse, and sneakers.

I am reading: Anges Grey by Anne Bronte

I am learning: to TRUST (it’s my word of the year)

In my kitchen: the temporary mess from the explosion is still there.  Hope we get it completed this week.

Shared quote: 

A moment from my day: 

Part of my Saturday

Closing note: My weekend was very busy.  I over slept this morning and didn’t get my daybook post up early…  We limed, fertilized and reseeded the lawn, I went to the laundry mat to wash blankets and comfortors, visited grandma.  I did not get to the gym once!  This tends to make me feel discouraged.  I won’t get there tonight either due to visiting grandma again and hubby has an emergency school board meeting.

I am thinking: that spring starts tomorrow and the rains have started.  We will have a rainy week here in Missouri!

I am thankful: That the true winter weather is over.  If we get anything white it won’t be much.

One of my favorite things: being at home.  Doesn’t happen much but I hope when our spaces are all done hubby will like being here more as well.

I am creating: other than our living spaces… nothing.

I am wearing: my normal work day attire… blue jeans, blouse, and comfortable sneakers.

I am reading: Anges Grey by Anne Bronte

I am listening to: The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer

I am hoping:  Grandma continues to do well.  She has been amazing through all this.

I am learning: She’s a stronger woman than I ever thought.

In my kitchen: a bomb has gone off again.  A lot of stuff has founds its way to all the flat surfaces in my kitchen.  Though this is temporary it drives me crazy.

Shared quote: This weekend I packed up almost 300 books and donated them to churches and the library.  This is so true for me!

A moment from my day: 

Closing note: I’m glad grandma is in our town and I don’t have to drive 50 miles one way to see her every day.  It’s not my favorite facility but we can get through these short 3 weeks and get her back to her home.  Please continue to pray for her full recovery.

Looking out my window: dreary day.  Cloudy and cold.

I am thinking: my weekends are too short!

I am thankful: for a new found service.  A local pet boarding service.  Since there is nobody to stay at home with our house dog over night I must take him somewhere.  And we go a lot during the summer.  I tried it for an over-night stay this past weekend.

One of my favorite things: shopping for new flowers for our pots.

I am creating: nothing much right now.  Just the same old “new spaces”.

I am wearing: blue jeans, sweat shirt, and sneakers.

I am reading: Anges Grey by Anne Bronte

I am listening to: One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

I am hoping:  to be done with this one soon.  I’m having a hard time focusing on it.

I am learning: to not waste my time worrying about things I have no control over.

In my kitchen:  it’s a more organized space and I have a new coffee maker!!!

Shared quote: 

A moment from my day: 

We bought a pool table last weekend and have spent an entire week setting it up and changing the felt from green to black.  We actually finished it shortly after I took this picture.  I was too tired to think about taking another one…

Closing note: It’s just another week of the same.  I have more to do that I can get done.  I hate to do it but I think I will have to stay home from the gym to get caught up this week.  I can always do a quick workout at home before I start my work.  SO, let’s get this new week started shall we?!

I am thinking: That the chaos is never going to end.

I am thankful: some one of our projects is completed.

One of my favorite things: manicures.

I am creating: Organized finance books/files for this new year.  Maybe I won’t be so late getting my taxes together next year.

I am wearing: blue jeans, black hoody, sneakers

I am reading: The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield so close to being done!

I am listening to: classical piano music on spotify.

I am hoping:  To get a full week of working out minus the Wednesday I will go see Grandma.

I am learning: eat better.

In my kitchen: PROTEIN… lots of protein and very few carbs.

Shared quote: 

A moment from my day: 

My sister and her new baby!  He’s so sweet!

Closing note: It was a very busy weekend.  I hope to get more accomplished this week so that next weekend doesn’t seem so crazy.  I hope you all have a great week!
