Sitting down with my calendar and caramel frappe to plan this week.  The time is fleeting before the moving truck comes!!!  Trying to stay on task and take care of everyone, phew, its exhausting!  Plus I took on a couple of extra shifts this week, so my regular days are out of order.  We also have company coming into town.  Art show and young entrepreneurs market one night.  Church, work, school, Scouts, etc.  Here’s what I’m hoping happens.

Sunday:  Grill.  Steak and fresh corn.  Sliced tomatoes.

Monday:  Slow Cooker.  Chicken and potato casserole.

Tuesday: Italian.  Shake n bake chops. Mac n cheese. Peas.

Wednesday: Mexican. Rach’s Taco Pasta. Salad.

Thursday: (company) Eat anything!  [might be sandwiches, or a restaurant]

Friday: Pizza

Saturday: Clean the fridge out.

I was enjoying the colors of the morning sky.  I took a quick pic and thought I’d grab another in a few minutes when more colors would be seen.  Then clouds moved in.  In that short amount of time my hopes for a blazing sunrise stretched across the sky were blocked!

life is like that sometimes.  It’s nice to remind ourselves that the colors are still there just hidden from us, and tomorrow is another chance to start over.7B77BC31-506A-448D-9855-4CAA569DFE51AAFE970F-FA65-4531-8C0A-87BBA87DA18D

ive been cleaning up my photos and using great coupon codes to order a bunch of prints.  Looking back over the holiday shots especially brings me a smile.

i feel like I am inside that building looking out.  I can see, but the tint keeps you from seeing me, and I am “safe” there.  I cannot be forced out.

Have you heard of One Word?  It’s a thing.    You can google it.  I see it as the core concept for my goals in the next year.  Similar to resolutions but with benchmark dates and measurable results. More about gradual changes and growth than a blanket statement such as eat less or save more.

2018.  Full of possibility and potential!  It’s exciting and scary at once.  The wish to make it better than the last.  Many words have been mulled over the past two months.  It has to have meaning and depth.  It has to lend itself to several applications.  And it has to be catchy, not so pretentious it seems too lofty from the start.

In between caroling and cookie baking this week, I took in an order for a quick and simple memory quilt.  I stayed up super late getting it sandwiched and basted.  Then rose with the rooster to get it completed.  It was a mess outside when I went to deliver it.

it’s a rare weekend day that I babysit.  This was one of them.  Our son went with me, and we made cookies!
