Little Roo’s Newborn Pics and Hello India, What is Your Game?

Well, just poppin’ in to say Hello. I think it’s been a few days. Just really between sleep, Roger, and work, have been worn out. Just trying to get things done.

The Grandson, Little Roo, had his newborn pics made and these are my favorite.

I like them all!

This one below, looks like me. 😉

Here’s a cartoon me with my camera.

See the resemblance? lol

I’ve been keeping up with my prayer journal, including thanking God for the blessings from the day before. It has been a nice way to start the day.

So much has been done at work but I still have a LOT to do today. I’m hoping not to have to work tomorrow. So that being said, I’m getting off of here and heading toward work. We are going out to lunch today to get to know a new person that is in our office. And so that will take 1.5 hours away. I’m glad to do it though but it will make my day harder and jeopardize tomorrow. Not an ideal day for me to do this, but I should go.

Between you and me and the fencepost who has ears like corn and eyes like a 45 eye’d monster, I’m probably not going in to work tomorrow regardless. I just have to much to do here as well. So let’s hope I finish. lol I think I will. But we’ll see. I guess I’m on the fencepost too, along with everyone else. Why do we tell a fencepost things like it is a secret? There are always so many people sitting on the fence within earshot! lol lol lol I often can’t make my mind up, so I sit there often.

I fixed Chili last night. It was pretty good. Not the best in the world. I think it could have been meatier and more chunky. But the taste was pretty good. I didn’t get pics. I’ve not been my usual self this week. I have been more like a robot – such as the weeks of January after year end. The year end push is always harder because each state has an extra report that has to be done so it’s quarter end plus all those extra reports. As I remember last year, I don’t think we finished on time either. But we got close. Very close. I’ll definitely get close. But I really need my weekend.

So what’s up with India? All of these places visited my blog about a week ago. Why on earth are they interested in my blog of all things? Ya’ll coming in on key words? Pic images? What? A rash of them all about the same time coming from all over India. WTH? Nothing political about my blog at all! Are you spying? I have no secrets but I’ll be glad to expose yours. lol lol

So the blog visits looked something like this at the time. India is lit up like a Christmas tree! If you are from India speak up and explain thyself. Anyway, welcome, I guess, although I’m not sure why there would be a rash of folks hounding up my blog. You know I’m just NOT that popular, lol.

I’ve tried to eat good this week. If you have been following me on Facebook. I’ve been posting my daily calendars and food items. It’s mainly just from all work and no play! Food has been the fun and it’s not really been that much fun either, lol. Although I did really enjoy the banana sandwich for breakfast.

I can make some pretty good salads at my desk on the 2nd day of a salad kit, some sandwich ham, and some onion straws. And some pretty good hot meals too with a frozen veggie mix and canned rice.

It’s bought me time at the desk at least.

So I’m happy it’s Friday. Gonna throw on some jeans, get out the door and try to peck away at the rest of the annual reconciliation returns, w-2 reportings. Hopefully it will all come together. I’ve been praying not to have to work this weekend. The work weeks are very long as it is and I need time to get laundry done and rest, and do some things. If I do have to work tomorrow I’m taking the same amount of time off during the week next week – tit for tat. It’s only fair since we already give most of ourselves over as an offering for most of our life with long days. So here I go to try to knock it out.

George and I were both so tired last night we went to bed at 8:18! Wow. I still could have slept this morning.

Ya’ll take care. More this weekend as I have more to report! lol

Toilet Paper, India, Little Bit, and Martini’s

Wow, yesterday flew by. First of all I got to sleep til 6:30. After several nights of waking up at 2:30 and tossing and turning. My normal wake up time is in the 4 a.m. hour. It IS edging closer to 5 through the pandemic and less traffic. But yesterday was a Sunday and Maisy held on until 6:30 and just had to get up.

My blog entry took a chunk of the morning. I had a nice little brunch yesterday of leftover steak from Long Horn.

And then we showered, took the dogs out, and then went to the store for a grocery run. I’ve taken a liking to the Slighty Mighty Lo-Cal IPA. This is a game changer for light beer. It doesn’t taste light. It’s just right. It’s kinda weird that I’m liking IPA’s anyway. I’m still a Kolsch girl.

One should note that there was plenty of toilet paper. I suppose Mount Juliet and the rest of society has now built walls of supplies and so it’s no longer in demand. I never really understood why there was such a shortage for so long. Were paper manufacturers not essential? But we are stocked as well and didn’t buy any. We were stocked as the only way we could get any was to buy like 4 of these you see right there. He got it on Amazon. It took nearly a month to get. He wanted to buy more but I wouldn’t let him. lol

I multi tasked worship with ironing yesterday. I must have ironed up a frizzy. No what I really did was iron up a dizzy. I was half way through ironing and had the slightest of a dizziness going on when I moved. Likely it was sinus related and with no other symptoms, I drank water, took vitamins, ate something, watched a video and sat down for a few minutes on the computer – or was it a couple of hours? lol I thought I should sit in case I passed out. Never figured out what it was. Might have been a blood sugar thing. I have no idea. But it went away. Then I finished the ironing eventually.

Much like Saturday, our Sunday was just beautiful. We had windows open and fresh breezes blowing through the house. I love the beauty of the curtains in the bedroom gently swaying back and forth.

Little Bit wanted to come in for a “little bit”. LOL. Something scratched his ear the night before and George put peroxide after he noticed something had gone on. It wasn’t bad.

Oh, we also discovered there is a skunk living under the brush piles next to the road so we are careful when taking dogs out.

Also looking at the blog data yesterday I see a lot of folks clicking in to the blog from India. Especially after mentioning the situations going on in Nashville. Very interesting indeed. Hello India. I’m sure you are not here for the Lifestyle Blog, but for information on the state of things in the US? This is only one page of info. But India goes on and on. Hey India – since there are so many of ya, will you subscribe to my YouTube Channel? I’m still at 7 and my goal is 100. I’d appreciate it. LOL LOL LOL Something here has definitely caught you interest over there. Maybe you wanting to build the latest washer? Or maybe you just wanted a pic of the launch? Or wanna bartend like the Hubby? Anyway, not a lot of political stuff here, so hope we don’t disappoint. But, you will learn how to vlog if you stick with me. 😉

I had a special project that took about two hours yesterday that was an impromptu project so – I really didn’t get much done on my blog yesterday. I will try to attack the list this week. I could have used another day. I always say we need 3 days of off time and only 4 days of work to balance life. I also did my LTD order. Only I waited too long. Some of the things were not there. But I enjoyed my shopping time on there.

But my bartender met my wishes yesterday afternoon of a “Monkeylada Martini” which I found somewhere on some website – well here it is

It has banana, coconut milk, crushed pineapple, and light rum – mint for garnish. I did not want the gold sanding sugar for garnish. It was like a pina colada George said. It was really good. Also should be blended with some ice I think or stored in the fridge for a while. We poured this over ice in a cup. Too much would ruin the flavor but I needed it to be a bit colder. It was good.

Before I knew it George was saying “dinner’s ready”. And he fixed chicken tenders – I love how he makes them. He made homemade ranch for dipping. We watched the Taylor Swift show that was on Netflix. That was interesting. And we are about three shows in on Sweet Magnolias. It’s ok but not as exciting as Ozark, lol.

Well, need to get off of here and head into work. And I’m itching for that 2nd cup of coffee. Best go! Will pop in mid week sometime. Have a great Monday and week ahead!
