Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~ 7/25/21

I had a day off last week. Yay me! Though I paid for it working a couple of 12 hour days to catch up. Which means I really didn’t get a day off by working 40 plus hours in 4 days. I’ll let you in on a little secret. That sH!t is about to stop. I’m taking off a full week in August come hell or high water. And when I get back, I am stopping at a reasonable hour even if things get behind.

It was a really nice day off though because I didn’t peek at anything work related despite the proximity to my work email on my phone. B had the day off too. We got some things taken care of and we are zeroing in on hiring someone to install our new roof. That has been fun not fun and makes for a post of its own.

Okay, enough prattling about. On with the reverse roll call.

  1. Saturday 7/24/21 – My Ear Bud dilemma and #SoCS Color
  2. Friday 7/23/21 – Book Club
  3. Thursday 7/22/21 – Thoughts about our definition of beauty
  4. Wednesday 7/21/21 – More from our guy Al
  5. Tuesday 7/20/21 – Share Your World
  6. Monday 7/19/21 – Reflections/Memories of Jim and Haiku
  7. Sunday 7/18/21 – Mr. Brightside

Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.

As always, more to come.

Ribbit, Ribbit. Cute little frog for my feature image. In the book I’m currently reading, Peggy collects frog figurines and Martha thinks that’s gauche. How rude! said in my Michelle Tanner voice over voice. Let’s get on with it shall we …

Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.

As always, more to come.

Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~ 7/11/21

Before the recap, today is 7/11 otherwise known as free Slurpee day. This tradition of ours to partake in the festivities was cancelled last year, just not safe with the Rona pre-vaccine. We’re not sure the freebies will be back this year but later on today we’ll check it out.

I changed my feature image with a plan to use different pictures each week based on my mood. This kitty quinceanera cracked me up so much and we all need a little levity, especially me after the week I created for myself.

Yeah, I own it. Much of my angst was self imposed. I kinda went cuckoo for Coco Puffs because I was repressing more than I cared to admit. But in the spirit of better out than in, I spoke to someone who talked me off the proverbial ledge. Friends are great aren’t they? Some of you here helped too. More than you know folks. Sometimes being acknowledged with a kind empathy is all one needs.

Okay, enough prattling about. Time for the reverse roll call. Woo to the Hoo!!!!!

  • Saturday 7/10/21 – #SoCS – Hope has been renamed but this won’t last. I’m telling ya what. LOL. And Tidbits.
  • Friday 7/9/21 – Book Club A free Prime Kindle. These monthly stories are often fillers for the library gems.
  • Thursday 7/8/21 – Thursday Thoughts and Expletive Rant without any context but I’m muchos mas bueno now.
  • Wednesday 7/7/21 – #1linerWeds. – MoMo’s b-day and more from our guy Al.
  • Tuesday 7/6/21 – Share Your World I do enjoy answering questions. And seeing how others do the same.
  • Monday 7/5/21 – Haiku – No work, much needed break. But laugh and we tells of pending emotions.
  • Sunday 7/4/21 – Cell phone gripe and #SLS American music.

Whew! I’m exhausted. But the good kind of regenerated tired. Nonsense you say? Well have you met me yet? LOL.

Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.

As always, more to come.

Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~ 7/4/21

Happy Birthday America! A year ago we were mask wearing, un-vaccinated, and under restrictions. I think? I’m sure about the un-vaccinated part and the mask wearing for sure but I don’t recall if the restrictions were of our own device. Hamilton was released on Disney + and I watched it on a loop. We also got two dollar Margaritas at Taco Cabana to celebrate the 4th. Yep, drive through drinking. There are rules, it’s not all willy nilly but it is something Texas kept. Open container laws still apply which meant the tequila came in a cute lil airline sized bottle. Yeah buddy!

Ok this is a week in review not an anniversary so let’s go onward through the fog to reminisce about last week. Reverse roll call, keeping it short and saweeeet!

Hmmm. I was chattier that I remembered with three days of twofers. Oh well.

Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.

As always, more to come.

Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~ 6/20/21

Keeping with an animal theme, I’m still using our baby bird instead of my frantic Llama/Sheep/Alpaca for my feature image. He served his purpose during the Rona daze but we’re past that right? Say right. Puhleese.

First and foremost, HaPpY Father’s Day to all the daddies out there. I’m missing mine something fierce. Smiling at the memories and living in the present by celebrating B and PoPo with a take-out Bar-B-Q extravaganza from Rudy’s Country Store … The Worst Bar-B-Q in Texas.

This past Friday, for the first time in forever, I picked up Casa de Jalisco take out without my mask. Felt odd to say the least. But I’m fully marinated, it was drive through, and we were six feet apart except when I reached over to hand my card for payment. The cashier did not have a mask on either. Hope she is fully marinated too but such is life. We’ll never know because we can’t ask.

When in close proximity, I’m choosing to continue masking it up. Which means last night at Pony’s early b-day swaray, we had masks on except when we were eating. Uh duh Jilly, of course you have to unmask to eat. The rest of the place was about a 50/50 split mask-wise. I mentioned about another trek out for PoPo and MoMo’s anniversary. That experience had mixed reviews. Last night felt a little more like normal, if normal is such a thing.

Hmm, I notice a trend that much of what we do centers around eating … Oh well. Y.O.L.O!

Alrighty, I’m moving to the reverse roll call …

  1. Saturday 6/19/21 – #SoCS fun with hat/het/hit/hot/hut. That Linda, she’s the best!
  2. Friday 6/18/21 – Friday Book Club, where I went fan girl crazy over Eric Jerome Dickey’s book The Son of Mr. Shulman
  3. Thursday 6/17/21 – Thoughts about the workplace with a musical interlude that snapped me out of the doldrums even if momentarily …
  4. Wednesday 6/16/21 – #1linerWeds. sticking with our guy Al
  5. Tuesday 6/15/21 – Share Your World – Melanie keeps putting ’em up and we keep knocking ’em out. Sharing is caring, truly it is!!!
  6. Monday 6/14/21 – Haiku over at Ronovan’s Place.
  7. Sunday 6/13/21 – #SLS hosted by Jim and Tidbits car trouble, driving Miss Daisy, mixed in with baking memories

Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.

As always, more to come.

Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~ 6/6/21

I’m changing the featured image today. Though time still feels wonky … like a year goes by in a week … and I’m busy as all get out … I feel a bit less frenized. I’m back in therapy … where I should be the one getting paid (more about that in another post … maybe). Any way my llama has been replaced, even if just for today.

Now keeping it short and sweet, here is the reverse roll call …

  1. Saturday 6/5/21 – #SoCS – Yarn
  2. Friday 6/4/21 – Book Club
  3. Thursday 6/3/21 – Thursday Thoughts
  4. Wednesday 6/2/21 – #1linerWeds.
  5. Tuesday 6/1/21 – Share Your World
  6. Monday 5/31/21 – Haiku and Perspective
  7. Sunday 5/30/21 – #SLS

Now for a quick grocery run, then to catch up for reading blogs. Yesterday I took a me day where after my appointment, I read my libby library book and lounged and read some more. Then I binged the HBO-Max limited series Mare of Easttown. All 7 ish hours of it in one sitting. I might have to rewatch episode 7 since I may or may not have nodded off. Very good … if not excellent imo. Gritty and raw in the vein of Dennis Lehane’s Mystic River.

Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.

As always, more to come.

Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~ 5/30/21

I’m looking back at the last week but also the last year. I’m having lots of “hard to believe that happened only a year ago” moments. Forever in an instant. Dare I say we survived.

Our PoPo came back home from the hospital Tuesday. He was there from 4/25/21 to 5/25/21. He’s in a wheelchair but his spirits are good. P/T is kicking his butt but the surgeon told him he had to power through. Tough love, insisting he better be walking into the office the next time he sees him.

I worked 10, 11, or 12 hour days which is down right stupid. Ugh. Makes no sense to work that much. Nothing changes. The pile varies somewhat but never goes away. Maybe that’s a good thing. Job security?

But that’s ‘nuf whining, let’s move onto the reverse roll call …

  • Saturday 5/29/21 – #SoCS where in my case there was a collection of silliness 😉
  • Friday 5/28/21 – #WATWB – Carry the Load
  • Thursday 5/27/21 – Thursday Thoughts – hope for answers but only more delay
  • Wednesday 5/26/21 – #1linerWeds. Einstein keeps knocking it outta the park
  • Tuesday 5/25/21 – Share Your World aka free therapy + sharing is caring 🙂
  • Monday 5/24/21 – Haiku – Lines & Mix
  • Sunday 5/23/21 – #SLS where we compared two songs

Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.

As always, more to come.

Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review

Time

Constructed by man

A way to make order

Of a chaotic world

Boy howdy, I’m waxing philosophical this Sunday morning. I’m going to blame the weather. Though I haven’t even stepped outside yet. Anyhoo, let’s get to the roll call. Changing things up a bit, I will roll backwards …

  • Saturday 5/22 – the prompt was roc. I phoned it in with rock and roll plus a quick video clip. My stream got stuck up on the rocks when the song became an ear worm. My my do I have an extraordinary playlist. Haha!
  • Friday 5/21 – Book Club time once again. This time a memoir of the Club King.
  • Thursday 5/20 – My thoughts were about my health or lack thereof and memories of rabbit ears on TVs.
  • Wednesday 5/19 – Another Einstein oneliner. KISS … Keep it simple stupid. My mom wouldn’t be pleased with me. Stupid was a bad word to her, way worse than even the eff word. I could probably write an entire post about that but I won’t, at least not today.
  • Tuesday 5/18 – Share Your World, a highlight of the week. I’ve got one word for you … VOODOO
  • Monday 5/17 – Haiku Plunge and Rapid where I wrote about cliff diving. At least that is what inspired these words.
  • Sunday 5/16 – #SLS prompt was elevator or background music. I picked Bad Guy

I feel there is much more to say but I also feel weary. I don’t have the gumption today. Still gonna blame the weather.

Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.

As always, more to come.
