The theme of yesterday was how to get Little Roo to sleep. My daughter is struggling for the perfect schedule. She is a good Momma. We (George and I) assure her that it is normal for babies to not have much of a schedule their first few weeks/months. And even when they get into one, sometimes it changes a bit. I told her that sleep and eating schedules were not perfectly timed so much until they begin eating cereal. For some reason about that time they start sleeping longer at night, and end up morphing into a morning nap and afternoon nap. He did not nap at all yesterday and it really bothered her. She is worried that he needs his sleep. He had slept almost all night though the night before. They bought him his “space suit” above. George and I told her last night “just relax”.
JUST LOOK at this adorable mischievous face. Here’s a post Katy put on Facebook last night. I just love that little smile!
Yesterday rocked! I got caught up at work. I’m all prepared for the next quarter end! That said, I’m considering a PTO day for next Friday just in an effort to have some down time and get some things done I’ve not been able to do. We’ll see how much progress I can make this weekend. But for a couple of weeks my work load will be light so it’s really a good time to take a day off. I think I might, even without consideration of what the rest of the year will look like. My soul is just screaming for extra time so I think it might be time to take it!
Here’s a screen shot I took to remind me to tell you that I tried the Iced Pineapple Matcha Drink from Starbucks. I was unsure at first if I liked it, but now I’m finding that I’m kinda craving it. It was NOT a non-caloric drink but it wasn’t horrible in calories. I think I may do some research on making this at home and perhaps keeping Matcha available to make Matcha Tea or Matcha Whatever. I want to see the nutrition value. It’s green so it must be healthy, LOL! You should give it a go if you do Starbucks! I plan to use my card on another one this week! So it’s a matcha match! lol. I’ll take it. I love finding new things I like.
Storm Chasing via Live Stream
After work last night, I started a load of clothes as George fixed the dryer so I got into that. Katy called and we talked about Little Roo’s sleep patterns for a long while. And then I got interested in following the storm chasers in the “Pan Handle” of Texas near Lubbock. One in particular is Reed Timmer. I follow him on Facebook I think – and I get live notifications so when he goes live in his storm chases, I can follow. I did some screen shots!
It’s interesting to watch but I would not want to be there. The storm chasers have their own language. He kept talking about being in “the bear cage” and that means that the tornado is the bear and they risk being attacked by the tornado. So that was exciting. There WAS a tornado and I got to watch it form and be in the car with a storm chaser (via the internet, LOL). That is the ONLY way I’d do it. LOL LOL
Here’s a screen shot of the radar a little after the live stream as the storm pressed east. My daughter is about an hour from Abilene so you know I had my sights on this storm. The rough weather was north of her.
After we got off the phone with Katy we had dinner of salad and ravioli and watched a couple of GOOD GIRLS shows. We have officially finished 2 seasons and we have one more to go. WE have loved this show. It think it is better than Breaking Bad!
SLEEEEEEP was superb! And I slept until about 6:30 or so this morning.
Morning Spiritual Focus Time
I’ve not mentioned it in a while, but wanted you to know that I have kept with my morning routine of after my shower and grabbing my cup of coffee, I head to “my chair”. This has worked more than anything ever has – having a specific chair and set up for this focus time. And I must say that THIS GROUNDS ME!
I start with my morning journal, a prayer to God, and I thank him for yesterday’s blessings. And I pour my concerns to him, and make any needs or fears known and ask for his support. And I.LET.IT.GO! When you have the most powerful DEITY in charge of you, you need not worry of anything else.
So progress has been made in my efforts to read the Bible backwards, LOL! I mean ya gotta shake life up right? I’ve read TWO chapters a day and underlined in YELLOW key points. I must say there are a LOT of key points. Each time I read the Bible I discover something I missed the last time, or some new meaning is revealed to me. It’s the neatest thing. I’m in Ephesians now.
And so I have a day cut out for me. All these things on the list that never seem to go away on top of housework. But it is all fun and games when its Saturday because I like doing all of those things.
To Do List
Much of the same is still on it as the last time I posted. Let’s see how much I get done this weekend.
Do you know what? I’m also looking forward to fixing a big bowl of popcorn and watching some of my shows! 😉 So I’ll work hard and when I get tired this afternoon I’ll sit down and do that.
That said, I better get started and go for it!

Oh my your daughter is SO cute! Also, been dying to try that iced matcha from Starbucks! I just always wind up getting a cold brew coffee instead🤣
Hi Sonya, what a good read today. I’m glad things are going good. It’s sad that Kate is so concerned about Roo’s sleep habits but your advice is right he will soon start to get into a sleeping pattern..but I know that’s not the advice that she really wants. She needs her Mum there with her and her Dad but that’s just not going to happen so the phone etc is the only way you can give her help……Glad that Friday went well at work and hope that today will go equally well, washing will by now be whirling away and may already be in the drier…..Hope you get some more fun looking at the next step on your video story. It might take a wee while to start raising your profile again but I’m sure once you get going regularity again your readers will grow again…. I’ve had a real busy two days so I’m quite exhausted tonight so looking forward to a few episodes of Helicoper ER. It’s a documentary series following the work of the air ambulance in different areas in the UK. It’s ever so good and amazing to think that the helicopter and the Drs etc staff on it are all volunteers and even the Helicopters are paid for by public subscription. The are called to any serious accident in the area, it could be car crashes, sport incidents,
Mountain walkers. Lots of hear attacks. Both Mary and I like these programs and support our local Wiltshire Air Ambulance… well love I’m going now..take care,and God Bless. Xxxx
Roo is so cute! Love the picture of him smiling. He doesn’t want to miss anything by napping. Grandson used to fight sleep. he is one of those people who doesn’t need much sleep. He gets up early even on weekends.
The pineapple matcha drink looks good. I shall try it next time I go to Starbucks.
