Favorite Top

This comes in a TON of different colors... & sizes from S - 3XL
Plus - those sleeves!!!!

Favorite Coloring Fun

Five Schitt's Creek-themed prints with text

I mean... Schitt's Creek.  What is more fun than this.
You actually pay to download these sheets so for $3.00 - that would be some afternoon entertainment.

Favorite Keurig Helper

I didnt even know such things existed.
You run these through your machine a few times & it cleans the lines.
I'm really intrigued!!!
Check to see if its compatible with your Keurig though if you try these out.
They dont work in some versions

Favorite Work Out Set

A model wearing the workout set in black.

So you get a top & bottom in this purchase.
I love me a matchy matchy workout outfit.
Looking cute makes me feel better about working out - just me?

Favorite Outlets

The Office  Michael Scott  Jim Halpert  Pam Beesly  Dwight image 1

Who thinks of these things??? 
If you're an Office Fan - then you really need these.

Favorite Paint Fun

I'm determined to try one of these paint by number kits.
This one is so pretty. They're just making them better & better.

Favorite Daily Planning

You know me - I love anything planner, notepads, pens - all stationary things
But this is a new one I just found.
I love the clock on here that you can color to reference any sort of appointment or important time of the day.

Favorite Electric Helper

the tower

This one is more expensive but man, I bet it comes in handy when the power goes out.
It has 10 outlets in it & holds power so when the electricity goes out, this has a battery back up so it will keep things running for a bit! It'd be nice to keep this to charge up a phone if you needed to while the power was out - all sorts of things you need power for JUST when it goes out.

Why did I wait, it barely missed & who knew I'd enjoy 6am so much {Thankful Thursday #290}

 Knit By God's Hand: October 2019

This week I am Thankful for:

Lightning Strike
Storms had been rolling in a little bit last week & my SIL had her AC unit struck my lightning.  No more that The Hubs & I were talking about that in the middle of another storm - & we were sitting on the back porch (enclosed) & LIGHTNING FLASH - BOOM!!!! Oh my gosh - I love storms. That sort of stuff doesnt freak me out - but it was CLOSE.  Close enough that we found out - it hit our back porch light!!!!  The Hubs thought it hit our AC unit which we thought, what are those odds?  But found out it just was about 3 feet over & hit our light.  I'm bummed about that light being out - but that's a MUCH easier & cheaper fix than our unit.

Bible Study
Our church started the new FALL bible studies/small groups. I had seen that they created a 6am  bible study group & I was always interested in going to it before driving into work.  Well, they've added in ZOOM during this crazy COVID season & it works out perfectly for me. I get up at 5:30 & get all prepared to be seen by other human eyes.... & it's just been really nice to have women together early to study in the book of John together.  I'm surprised that there's been about 21-22 people the past few weeks.  Apparently this time is working out great for nurses that work 12 hour shifts & miss the other study times... & its working well for teachers too.  

Time Off
It was glorious to be away from my computer for awhile.  Of course, being off doesnt mean you can really go anywhere & I was truly & fully OK with that. It was just nice to relax. I took multiple naps. I hate naps. That's how relaxed & how much I needed the extra rest.  

Day of reading
It worked out perfectly that my time off, I got some really nice days with the weather. One day, I honestly went out & sat in my lounge chair at 7:30am to start reading a book & the whole day, I just moved to different chairs to avoid the sun & I ended up finishing the book by 7:30pm & then came in for dinner. 

Harvey Dent enjoyed the lazy day outside too

While I was off, I took my mom to the doctor. Since you cant go in with anyone, I ended up heading over to Books a Million to wait for her. I could spend HOURS in there & it was just so nice & relaxing.No one was in there & I just took my time strolling the aisles.  & I finally got a book I've been wanting for the longest time.  I just love this cover on this Little Women book & I also want the Anne of Green Gables book that goes with it.   I dont know why I put off for so long getting it - it makes me so happy.

TJ Maxx
While I was off, the Hubs had to work, so I went to places that I know he just doesnt care to visit.  I hadnt been to TJ Maxx in the longest.... & I honestly just wanted to go in & check out their purses & try & find a cute Fall purse. (Why? I dont know - not like it'll be much use)  But I ended up walking out with so many new notepads, pens, all the stationary cuteness....even some camo tennis shoes that were marked down on clearance for $8.00.  It was a total TREAT YO SELF day

Tell me something good about your week

The weekend that is still keeping me away from the world

 The worst.... 

I mean, Monday is pretty bad... but a Monday after some time off work - THE WORST!!!!

Theworst GIFs - Get the best GIF on GIPHY

It'll be a hectic day, but I sure did enjoy the relaxing time.

I mean, time off - what does that really mean? 

For us, we dont go anywhere besides a few local stores - still not eating out - so that just meant a lot of reading for me.  & I'm 10000% ok with that.  It was really nice weather & I honestly spent one entire day out running from the sun to find the shade areas outside & read a full book & it was just wonderful.  

Books & iced coffee.  ... & no logging onto the computer or turning on the news.

THAT is a vacation to me! Truly.

I've found that I really cant handle certain things anymore.  The News.... social media fights - & let's face it, its fights - its not even calm discussions - on all the hot topic things. Masks, COVID, schools, protests, politics.  I honestly can't deal.  My anxiety levels just are to the max with everything. I am a pretty patient person but let me tell you, even I feel like I'm on a short fuse lately.  Lord Jesus - give us strength.  I dont foresee any time soon with calm & peace & unity either - I think THAT's what gives me the most anxiety.  No wonder I like to just stay at home in the world of books.

But we're back to the grind.  Back to routine.  If you've been around here for awhile, you know I'm a routine kinda person anyways so going back to work is never really a bad thing for me. Especially when I'm still just walking down my hall to go to work. 

Nothing really exciting happened over the weekend.  I did a lot of sewing... did some knitting....

I was excited that Season 5 of Lucifer was back!!!! ... & then watched it in one day & bummed out I have to wait forever for the 2nd half of the season. UGHHHH.  

I'm over Netflix giving us 8-10 episodes of a great show & then making us wait another year for another 8-10 episodes. Not cool Netflix - not cool at all.

Lucifer Season 5 Review: Tom Ellis & Lauren German Take Us On One HELL Of  An Emotional Rollercoaster Ride!

I got to get some Baby love...

She just wants me to rub her face & give her kisses. It takes everything 2x's as long to get anything done.... but I dont mind. I'll kiss that sweet face all day long.

& of course, dog love is an every day must.  

These boys are so spoiled.  Just the way I love my dogs.

I mean, all you have here is just another boring blog post .. thanks 2020.

How was your weekend?

Did you do anything exciting or fun?

Is your stress/anxiety level near the FULL mark too?

Favorite Shirt

Halloween Shirts For Women at Old Navy

So this is from Old Navy - so you know how that goes - 
SUPER Affordable!!! ... I already ordered one

Favorite Natural Remedy

Shower Eucalyptus Bundle Fresh Eucalyptus Aromatherapy image 0

When you get stopped up or need to be cleared out in the head - especially when cold & flu season is coming up.  You can buy bundles of Eucalyptus to hang in your shower & get the benefits of it.

Favorite Bag Helper

I love all these things that help carry in all the bags in one trip.
This is a new one & I like that this is basically a strap! You can tuck this in your purse or your pocket & carry everything in one trip!
I mean.... this looks like you could even DIY it yourself!  But I like the handles on this.
What a simple but smart idea!

Favorite Headrest

How perfect is this for road trips.
If you're a napper on the road, then this will save your neck from crying out.
It looks like you can put this on a front seat or a headrest on the back seat & adjust it to lay your head against so you're not hitting your head or laying it on the window. 
Kinda genius

Favorite Side Table

This is small enough to not take up a lot of room, but I really love that extra basket at the bottom.
Perfect for books, or to stash some remotes or even a little blanket or little pillows

Favorite Face Helper

The case with the beige blotting papers in it and then the square black sponge next to it with a blotting paper attached to it

So these are blotting papers that help take the oil/shine off your face.
But these also have a little bit of translucent powder on the sheets too so its a 2 for 1

Favorite Mask Helper

Model wearing the mask strap extender in grey on the back of their neck with a disposable mask attached to it

See that little piece behind her head?
This keeps all the pressure off your ears all day long.
I've seen & used quite a few different ones & I'm having issues with things getting stuck in my hair.
This one looks really flexible & not as "tangly" if that makes sense.
Plus, its $6.99 for 4 of them... its worth a try.

Favorite Grill Helper

Four grilling baskets with assorted veggies in each one on a plate

So its well know in these parts... no meat on a grill for us
but I do love me some veggie kabobs!
But every time I would make them, they are forever falling off of a skewer - so this idea is fantastic!
