Friday I spent part of the day cleaning a bit of the bathrooms, a quick vacuum and of course cleaning out Noel’s area and litter box. Plus did all my usual morning things that I do.
We also had guests in our front lawn.
It is not the best picture but you can hopefully see one of them well while the other has their head buried in the grass finding something good to munch on. We have had them show up usually across the street but, Friday was the first day they decided to come into our yard. I absolutely love having whatever wildlife show up around our home.
Just a quick mention for the ladies either traveling or not and a very nice and cool way to keep your credit card and other valuables safe. I got a PacSafe bag online for less than $50 it is RFID protected, has wires so if someone decides to slash your strap and run off with your bag well good luck unless their knife is really sharp and can cut through mesh. It has a key ring on the inside for your keys if you want, it has an extra clip attached to the strap so you can attach it and make it even harder for someone to come along and open your bag and take your wallet, etc. Granted it may not be the most stylish bag but, for peace of mind and a bit of added security this is well worth the money.
I have lately seen a lot of women leaving their purses unzipped in restaurants etc. Granted i am not a pickpocket but, if I was it would be awfully tempting to try.
Whew plus this week I have finally finished a lot of books I had checked out from the library and renewed and renewed once again. So that is a relief so no possible fines or whatever.
I also picked up from Amazon a kids yoga dvd for our daughter…I have been looking for one so finally had to give up and just order it.
If you need or want a good movie for the entire family try Warren Buffets Millionaire Kids Club. Granted it is animated and I feel is a bit too advanced for our daughter now but, in a few years this will be perfect for her. It gives great advice for both kids and adults just my opinion.
Hope to attend a Herb Festival close to town but, will have to wait and see what the weather will be doing Saturday.
What are your plans for the weekend?
Tuesday my dad and my daughter had a lot of fun. It was really sweet watching him play with his granddaughter and he even read her a story. It was very cool.
Wednesday I actually feel a lot better and am not as tired as I have been due to lack of sleep and allergies.
If you have not seen any episodes of Red Dwarf please go check them out from a red box, your library or netflix. It is a funny show. Does anyone know if the actor playing the cat has cats or if the writers had any cats because for a human to play a cat he has it down pretty good.
Wednesday I have been in such a good mood. I actually sang this morning (no I will never make it on the Voice or American Idol) not my dream anyway. Which is strange because my dad left my moms to go back home. I will still miss him but, he is planning on coming out for a visit in October sometime so that should be fun. He hates to travel when it is so hot. I just hope he can handle the heat the main city was over 100 yesterday where he lives. Yuck.
Wednesday I went grocery shopping and spent less than $100 on food for the week for 3 people. Not too bad. We still need to go to the farmers market this weekend to get a few fruits and veggies.
Noel and the cats are not shedding so bad so driving me a little less crazy with having to brush them so much. Still love my fuzzy friends.
Have a fantastic day!
Today my dad left but, at least my daughter got to spend time with her grandpa.
Yesterday we spent a couple of hours with him hanging out, talking and playing. My daughter even got my dad to read a sponge bob book to her. It was really awesome seeing my dad play with my daughter and read a story to her.
I still feel awful but, I can at least hear. I think I personally poured a quarter to a third of a bottle of hydrogen peroxide into my ear just so I can hear again. Much cheaper than going to the doctors especially when my insurance situation is still a grab bag.
My mom bought me the coolest accordion type wallet that is designed so that way people can not get personal info off of your credit card or debit cards. It is even tinier than my normal wallet that I carry and holds almost all that I carried in my old wallet. I absolutely love it. The only draw back is no where to put your loose change so for now until I can come up with something better it is in the bottom of my purse so I will have to dig if I need any change. Since most of the bulk is gone out of my purse this should not be a problem. The bulkiest thing in my purse was my wallet.
I do want to share a link about simplicity and hope it helps.
Since my dad is in town it has been a whirlwind of activity which has been fun and good except for today. Today I am well sick I guess. I feel fine but, I have one ear clogged up with a bunch of wax (disgusting I know) but, it will not get out very easily. So today I am really tired and cannot hear out of one ear.
I went by and visited with him on Saturday before I had to take his granddaughter to her friends birthday party. It was fun both events.
Sunday we were invited to my in laws for dinner along with my parents. On the way back I had to stop rather suddenly at a green light because there were a couple of geese with their young goslings crossing the road. My mom was so funny and said “why don’t they do this at a wildlife crossing” I asked my mom “can geese read?” we both said no at about the same time. The goslings were very cute and had their fluffy downy feathers.
Monday was spent taking it easy or as easy as I could.
We got our statement on how much money we spent at our local food coop so for the year we spent about $8000 for a family of three. You might think this is expensive so breaking it down per week 8000 divided by 52 = 153.85 which strictly speaking is not too bad. This of course does not include our eating out upon occasion or any other extra snacks purchased elsewhere. You can break it down further and see how much we spent per person per serving for a week but, I figured enough geeking out for me.
My dad will be leaving Wednesday so Tuesday we will spend more time with him and I hope to be feeling better. I will miss him when he leaves.
Not to be confused with Santa lol. I am really excited. My mom is still not sure if he will be here today or not so we will have to wait and see.
Wednesday I was having technical difficulties. It always seems that there is never a good time for your cell phone to die. My husband had to take a small trip out of town for a meeting. He texted me saying that he was on his way to meet my daughter and I for lunch. I had no idea where he was and couldnt really ask because cell phone decided to die. So I texted back that we would see him there. We waited over an hour for him to show up at our meeting place. I was getting rather grumpy (I tend to when I am hungry and the smell of food is driving me crazy) so we decided to check a few other places and then headed home. I found that my cell phone had a voice mail and missed calls from my husband. We did finally go back to meet up and eat a very late lunch to me at 2pm. Plus it decided to rain (nothing like suddenly remembering you left windows open at home) no rain got in to soak anything thankfully. It was a rather exciting day.
Thursday I decided to go ahead and transplant the last of my flowers outside (we are supposed to have a hopefully last frost this weekend maybe). I got my tomato plants at the farmers market and am debating on putting them in buckets before this weekend.
My daughter and I are super excited to see my father her grandpa. It has been since last year so we are looking forward to it. I really hope he makes it before the rain starts in yet again. Cant complain it made pulling up plants a lot easier to make space for the new plants.
I am now down to brushing Noel every other day. It helps but, she is still shedding a bit ah well.
My daughter is also going to her friends birthday party this weekend as well. So today I will be giving her a mini facial and painting her finger and toe nails along with my own. If your going to a princess tea party you gotta dress the part and feel like a princess to be a princess.
Have a great weekend and enjoy. Dont forget to wish your mom, sister, wife,etc. a happy mothers day.
Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there enjoy your day!
My mom loved her present for her birthday and mothers day. Yup you can say I am a cheap person combining them together. I also got some good news as well my dad will be coming in for a visit and hopefully be leaving Thursday and be here by Friday or Saturday. My daughter and I are very excited by the prospect of seeing him.
I just have a few links I want to share for information so in no particular order they are:
Hope this helps you keep the clutter at bay and bust some out of your home.
Need help healing from a major disease or just need a bit more energy this will help you hopefully de stress and relax. Either that or might I suggest Reiki and if you are interested you can get attunements to help you heal yourself. I am a Reiki master so just let me know. That is all for now so until next time.
Just wanted to wish my mom a Happy Birthday! Today I will be taking her to the saloon where I got my hair done. They give massages, facials, and wraps. My mom is having a facial. This ties in great with what she is having done earlier. She is having a massage. So she will be coming over to my house so I can either drive her over and drop her off or she can follow me or whatever she wants to do.
Yesterday I spent the morning cleaning the bathrooms and doing my usual of taking care of the furry friends. Oops my daughter is included in this too lol.
Tonight I am meeting a coworker of my husbands at a local coffee shop. They will probably have tea as for myself I am not sure.
I also got my medical records paid for by me of course so my “lovely” insurance company should be getting them next week I hope. It was not as expensive as I thought it would be less than $20 and my insurance company cant or wont pay really? So silly.
This weekend I read and finished In the Body of the World by Eve Ensler. It is a good book and I recommend it. It will make you cry, laugh, and be amazed at the strength of the human spirit. It might even make you angry too.
This weekend I did get to go see the newest Ironman movie. I liked it. The previews are good too. There is a new Thor movie coming out along with a new Wolverine movie (Marvel comics need I say more?). There is also a new Lone Ranger movie due out soon too. I have not seen the Lone Ranger since I watched it on TV in both color and black and white. Yup I feel older than dirt some days lol. Those were the ones that were of at least memorable mention to me there were others but, more for me a matter of who cares.
What movies do you want to see this summer?
