I almost didn’t post today but as it turns out, I have a few minutes to reflect on the week so while the Green Bay game plays on in the background, I am sitting here typing away.
Did you have a good week? Mine was pretty good. I feel like I accomplished a lot. Every to-do item on my list was checked off by Friday and that was a nice way to end the week.
And, I finally started painting The Girl’s room. It’s halfway done! Progress. The paint color is Tahitian Breeze by Behr. I love vaulted ceilings but painting them is a bit of a challenge. Honestly, my legs are sore from going up and down that ladder.
Green Bay is playing so The Hub is glued to the TV. We just finished dinner (chili and cornbread) and there’s plenty for leftovers throughout the week. After this, I have to get my stuff ready for the week and then I will settle down to watch some TV.
This is audition week for Peter Pan. Tuesday and Wednesday will be exciting days. The Girl is trying out for a Lost Boy (Curly) and Tiger Lily’s friend Talking Rain or Whispering Leaves, I can’t remember which. She’s been dancing and singing all over the house.
I am about halfway through with Finders Keepers by Stephen King. It’s good but there’s something about it that isn’t sitting right with me.
I just started The Boys in the Boat for book club. I have about a week and a half to read it. October is sneaking up on me. I hope I finish it in time because it was my club pick.
On Friday night The Girl and I hunkered down with Sleepless in Seattle. I’ve seen it soooo many times but I love it. I also managed to slip in The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles!! Then, tonight, it’s Fear the Walking Dead. I hope the Green Bay game ends by the time it starts or there will be words. JK.
Chili. Turkey chili which was delicious but it was 105 degrees when I left church this evening so it’s not quite chili weather. Still, it was quite good.
I’ve been challenged a lot lately both at work and in my personal life. At first, I experience a tiny moment of pure fear. You know the type I am talking about. The type where you spend fifteen minutes hyperventilating and panicking about not knowing enough. But then something happens and I kick it into gear and all seems right with the world. I have learned SO MUCH these past six months. I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to rise and succeed. It’s a very good feeling.
What are you grateful for this week?
