Tuesday chit chat( a little late)

  • This is http://www.myhalfdozendaily.typepad.com Carla’s weekly update.
  • Reading: I’ve read a few books this week. “Notes from a Blue Bike” by Tsh Oxenreider. Good book and very nicely done, about creating simplicity in your life. “The Snow Child”, about Alaska in the 1930’s ( maybe earlier) and homesteading and a mysterious child who shows up. InterestING story. Now I’m reading ” The Cuckoos Calling” by Galbreath( who is JK Rowling ), quite excellent, I’m surprised. Excellent character development .
  • Listening to: nothing, I like quiet.
  • Watching: ok, finished Game of thrones, season 3 and thought I’d have a heart attack( just kidding) pretty tough ending.
  • Cooking/Baking: I made a turkey, it was ok. Not great.
  • last night some yummy sesame noodle with stir fry vegies.
  • Happy you accomplished this week: all done with doctor appts, till the end of the month,
  • Looking forward to next week:this week, actually, just catching up on my zone cleaning, and since the weather will be warmer, maybe starting the decluttering in the barn.
  • Thankful for today:
  • As, always , that I have a good quality of life , living with myeloma, and my wonderful husband, who is always loving and supportive, and my 2 very exceptional children.
  • thats it for now, today is a work day. Yesterday, my van cost 350 to fix the oil sensor light,but still needs @$ 1500 for more stuff. It’ll have to wait till after taxes.

Sunday night chit chat

It still freezing here, and the low is 22 or some horrible number. The high is only suppose to be 40. It’s tough to get the house warm, and I’m sure our electric bill will be ginormous. I’m holding off walking till it’s light so I can see the path and ice. It’s still freezing but at least I can see.

so here some of what’s going on thanks to Carla at halfdozendaily.typepad.com

  • Reading: Robert Parker’s , Trouble in Paradise, pretty good fast read.
  • Listening to: nothing, the fire place crackling
  • Watching: we’re going to rematch The girl with the dragon tattoo. I love these movies, the Swedish version is the best.
  • Cooking/Baking:beef ¬†stew is in the crock pot and cheese tamales.
  • Happy you accomplished this week: it seems like not a lot but I did all my regular Flylady stuff. My Christmas shopping is done except for 2 gift cards for co workers.
  • Looking forward to next week: walking, the temperature going up some.
  • Thankful for today: I’m always grateful to feel pretty good and live a quality life. I’m so grateful for my family, and life itself.
  • Bonus question: What is your favourite Christmas carol?gee, I like so many but probably John Lennon’s ” and so this is Christmas”, not sure of exact tilte
