Just a quick pop in to say good morning before diving into the day. It’s a BUMPY little start to the day. Storms all around, mainly with lightning, but enough to get severe t’storm warnings.
Yesterday at work went pretty fast. Got a lot done there and went out for lunch at Logan’s for a salmon Caesar salad. It was heavenly. I like to get away for lunch as it gives me some thinking and planning time. Got my planning done for Mom’s visit with us on the Easter weekend. We are cooking part of the time and going out some too. I also made my list for the weekend of things I need to get done and wrote up my grocery list and all. That was productive. I hate going into a busy weekend knowing I have things to do but if I don’t have my list made I end up being a “feather in the wind”. BTW, I found a cute animated “feather in the wind” for the end of my videos. I don’t know if you noticed it in the last one. But I thought it was cute. I am often like a feather in the wind, but have to reign myself in! LOL.
It’s getting LOUD out there! And it is supposed to storm all day and all night, with some of the worst stuff this afternoon and in the overnight. I don’t like it when it storms at night. I don’t like anything messing with my sleep. LOL
Shopping at the Home Store
I got the idea at the end of the day, that I wanted to stop at the Dollar Store and also the Home Store to see if there were any inexpensive Easter decor I could set about. I HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME! Do you know how much I miss shopping and hopping about? Everyone else was out too.
Sometimes I take pics of things I like but didn’t buy. This vase would be cute to put flowers in.
I don’t have a need for any more beachy things but I LOVED THE SAYING! So often I’ve gone to the beach, left the world behind, and come back with a renewed spirit, and always always always wanting to do more of the same! How can I live at the beach? lol. How can I move here? And so forth. Love being around the water!
I came home and unpacked my goodies. I’m looking forward to setting them about today as I do some cleaning.
It’s not much but enough to set about to give a Spring and Eastery feel! Looking forward to setting it all out.
The new coffee came in. It’s pretty good. It has the undertones listed. I think I can taste it sometimes but mostly it tastes just like really good dark bold coffee. There are no flavors as such. I was worried about that. I would not be a fan of flavored coffee as they call it. But the “undertones” have a hint of flavor. Think of it like wine. I love my wine but I can never identify the flavor notes, lol. We mostly just make fun of those that can by sticking our noses up in the air, sniffing, rolling it around and saying “mmmmm that tastes good”. LOL
Little Bit hung out with us this morning as the storms began rolling through. And it’s official. I’ve asked God to bring me another furry faced little lap dog to love me. I miss having a little follower. I know we probably really don’t need another one right now so I’ll try to hold off until after we get a few trips to see Grandson under our belt so we can fly. Either that or the next one we have to get used to boarding. I just can’t bare to break a little pets heart by boarding though. That is the problem.
I love my Saturday’s and immediately after my prayers for an animal to love me….I was joined by these two. I’m honored that Roger is seeking me out lately and that Little Bit does too.
Little Bit STANDS on the PROMISES of GOD!
And plants himself firmly in the Word!
Ok so that is all I have today. I am officially kicking in the BUSY time to get the following done:
Today’s Clean up:
- Clean up bedroom
- Surface clean (windexing, cleaning counters, dusting)
- Iron/wardrobe for the Work week ready
- Clean up my Office
- Put out Easter Decor
- Clean up Sunroom
- Check for Grocery items (what we have/don’t have) of the recipes I’m making next weekend.
Hopefully I’ll be able to do some of my OTHER to do List too! We’ll see. I’ll try to share pics as fun things happen today. Yeah I know I’m cleaning. But I like to make things fun!
Have a blast of a day yourself! What are you doing today on this fine Saturday? And pray for our storms to subside as it could get bad later. Risk for tornadoes. ::Sigh::
