Dinner in Donelson, Baby Faces, Police Visit, and My To Do List

McNamara’s, Donelson, TN

Yesterday had a bit of fun when I got to meet a friend/neighbor for meal in Donelson at an Irish restaurant, McNamara’s. A fun little place. I wish there were more healthy things on the menu! I had Fish and Chips. Very good. Very good, I say! But not low in calories or fat I’m afraid. Still, the restaurant is a favorite.

Are you ready for some cuteness? We love the different faces of my Grandson as his Mom captures them and sends. His Mom sent those to me yesterday. Here’s Little Roo! He has gained 4 lbs since birth and is wore his LAST newborn diaper yesterday! I especially love the last pic as I love seeing a baby kick and play with their arms!

Neighborhood Suspicions

When I got home last night the police was at our house! I had gotten a notification that someone was at my doorbell when I got into the car leaving the restaurant. I listened to the conversation when George went to the door. It was the next door neighbor. I heard him saying someone had stopped in front of our houses and took pictures toward the neighbor’s house. The neighborhood house is for sale. I figure it was someone that is looking at houses for sale and stopped to take a pic. But our neighborhood teen was at home by himself and came over as it scared him. George looked back on our security cam and was able to show the car and you can see the flashes of lights while taking pics. So George told him if he was concerned, he could call the authorities so they could do periodic drive bys. The car had not done anything wrong as far as I know. George said it was odd to be doing that at night instead of daytime. I told him, “not really, most people work all day and someone looking at houses would most certainly ride around after work looking on their own before involving a realtor if they decided to do so”. I would do that! lol The police was leaving as I arrived. But I was glad to know what was sort of going on before just showing up and the police is there. I woke up at 1:30 in the morning and thought about it. Of course I laid there for an hour. But I figure it is someone looking at houses. It seems like any time mentions anything in our neighborhood that is suspicious it always involves a black car or a black truck. lol. And this was a black car.

Anyway, this week is surely moving on! Tonight I have free. After being gone the last two nights I’m glad to be coming home tonight.

Upcoming To Do List: Am I Busy? LOL

So the upcoming to do list is to begin looking/learning about elder care and looking at options for Mom for a move to Mount Juliet so we can aid her in her needs and spend more time with her.

I will be looking at my subscriptions and seeing which to cancel. Evernote is one I’ve decided to cancel to the free version and will move the file storage over. I will keep the free version and move files over to my cloud drive if needed. I needed it for my side hustle business with the health company I use but since I’m no longer doing the business, it’s not needed.

I need to sew up by navy blue pants as the hem fell out and I miss wearing them!

I have to figure out how to install the Nest device – an extra sensor in the house. If we cannot figure it out we may need to return it if it is not too late. It probably is. I’ve not had time to do anything with it.

I want to work on the new Intro and excited about that. Probably won’t be til after I get back from Mom’s. I’m going to see her this weekend. Spending the night with her Fri night.

I need to catch up on all my shows which is going to be hard b/c I won’t be home much. I also haven’t seen the latest Sister Wives show.

I need to order Ring Light and Rode Microphone and wind muff sometime in the next month. I think the microphone will help in the house but need the muff for outdoor shooting. My new lens arrived for zooming. So we need to set up an excursion so I can play with the new lens.

I want to set up a “Health Tracker” so I can force myself to look at “markers” as to how I’m progressing. It helps hold oneself accountable and lets you know your trend before you step into those tight jeans all of a sudden. I talked about doing this last year and in true fashion I begin to get so detailed and fancy with it that I begin to give up as it is too much. So I’m going to keep it simple – weight, blood pressure, heart rate, and a couple of measurements – waist, bust, arm? I have a goal size I want to go to. And don’t want to solely depend on the health and wellness company I’m doing, to be able to sustain this. I will definitely use the products but I want to be able to do this when I retire also, so I need to figure out a diet and regimen that is sustainable now!

That said, I have a Cracker Barrel and Culvers cards to use up! lol

I want to study some Vlogging YouTubes and do my Canon lessons.

I want to learn how to do more things with Canva for use in my videos.

We need to look at flooring and do our research there.

And I need to do the next video.

  1. That Roo looks like he is excited about life. I too like that last picture of him but they are all so cute. Aren’t babies wonderful. That was an unusual night visit by strangers – does not hurt to call the police just to be safe.

    Hi Sonya, I’m not sure that you have enough planned. !! Are you sure you can’t fill it up a bit more !LOL. It would be much better if you could help Mum find a place nearer to you and George….mind you when the time comes she might find it’s just to much of a hassle to move…old folks are like that. We were amazed when my Brother in law said yes to selling his house and buying one with his daughter and moving way out of the area he had lived in for over 60 years. It has all worked out well though. Barbara my niece has since remarried and now there are three of them in the house. As Barbara says it’s mostly great, just the odd time when Dad might say something to annoy her but I explained that she just has to try to ignore it, it’s probably not meant. So fingers crossed you find somewhere for her soon.
    I think it’s good that the police were warned and that they might take note of black cars touring around…..The photos of baby are lovely.. it’s amazing how fast they grow at that age. How heavy is he now ? I can’t remember quite what he was when born,,,,Well I must move and do a tidy round before Peter comes home bringing us our once a week fish n chips. I only have the fish but Mary and Peter like the chips as well as the fish. Your dinner out last night sounded just perfect for an Irish Diner …….Take care working today and PLEASE try not to do to much.
    God Bless. Drive safely home. Xx
