Life Last Week 2018-5


The weather:::
It's 65 degrees right now (and we're supposed to have a high of 64 today, how do they figure that one out?  Is right now not today?).  It's also raining and will be until this afternoon.  A perfect day to stay inside.

On my reading pile:::
Oh dear, this is beginning to sound like a broken record...I.will.go.to.the.library.this.week!

On my TV:::
Still working my way through Call the Midwife.  Vic's traveling this week so I'm also planning to watch the new season of When Calls the Heart.  Happy Dance - a new season of A Place to Call Home is due out this year!

Checked off the list:::
  • Dropped off our taxes so now I'm waiting for our refund.  I'm so happy, after paying the IRS last year, I would have been happy with $1 back but it's quite a bit more than that so that is even better news.
  • Sat in on a board meeting for the gift shop for our spouses' group President.
  • Watched the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics - it was just ok, what did you think?  Coverage of the events has been sporadic although we did catch Red Gerard's gold medal performance.  17 years old, can you imagine?

Crafts roundup:::
Still need to watch the February One Little Word videos and catch up on last week in Project Life.  I ordered some paper from Amazon but it was the wrong size so I had to send it back and reorder so that put me behind a week.  I bought some great Washington digital journal cards and stamps for our upcoming trip.  I'm thinking of making a mini album if I can find one I like.


Vic at breakfast on Saturday morning.  This is his "No, honestly, I'm not looking at the TV screen behind you" look!

Life Last Week 2018-4


The weather:::
Thanks, Phil, six more weeks of winter!  High 40s, low 50s all week except for 66 on Wednesday, what's up with that?

On my reading pile:::
I.will.go.to.the.library.this.week!

On my TV:::
Not the result we wanted but it was a good game.  Congratulations, Philadelphia Eagles!  I'm working my way through Call the Midwife again.  We watched Britannia which was meh.

On the menu last week:::
So not in the mood for planning or cooking so I think this category will be pitched unless I come up with some amazing meal that I want to share.

Checked off the list:::
  • Had to reschedule the appointment to drop off our taxes since the tax lady had the flu so I'll be taking care of that this coming week.
  • Worked at the gift shop and got away without breaking the bank.  I did pick up some Christmas napkins and tea towels at 50% off and a few ornaments at 75% off.
  • Great outing with the spouses' group to a local Victorian house that is a museum.  We had tea and a tour and it was very interesting.  Tea was quite nice although no cream for the scones so I had to take points off for that.

Crafts roundup:::
Completed One Little Word's assignments for January just in the nick of time and also last week in Project Life.  I'm not enjoying One Little Word as much as I thought I would so I hope it grows on me.  I think it's because I am having a hard time with my word {change}.  Totally failing on the change our eating habits front.  Well, the Super Bowl will do that for you, won't it?

Here's what's coming in the week ahead - will they or won't they?  Honestly, they.only.had.one.job.


On the brighter side, this is coming in the week ahead too.

What's your favorite Winter Olympic sport?
