Happy Sunday to all. I hope this finds you all well and safe.
Winter seems to have come to my town! The week started out pretty warm and decent - this morning it is snowing. I don't think it will be a lot - but it is white! The weather this week looks to me normal winter temperatures - no warm stuff. Oh well, it was bound to happen.
The squirrels are nuts! I have seen more squirrels in my yard and the neighbors this week, than I have ever seen before. They are everywhere!!! They are also quite frisky, if you know what I mean! LOL
Tons of birds out there - I am trying to cut back on feeding them some - so they are doing a great job cleaning up after the squirrels. Seeing 3 different types of woodpeckers, and still seeing the occasional robin.
My week was quiet:
- Of course, I had the family in town on Sunday - much fun. So quiet once they left.
- Had my financial guy come for a review on Wednesday - pleasantly pleased considered the market.
- Been using leftovers and freezing what I can't eat right away.
- Ran to the library and dropped off, picked up and renewed my library card.
- Been doing a lot of reading this week.
- Cleaned out more drawers.
- While out to library, I did run in WM Marketplace to check cat food supplies. They had one type canned I have a very hard time finding (that cats love) - so I bought a case of 24. Got them some treats as well.
- No other grocery shopping - need nothing
- General cleaning
- Eating leftovers, all meals from home
Meals this past week:
Smorgasbord I made for family
Chili and crackers
Ham & cheese sliders and salad
Loaded baked potato - chili, cheese & sour cream
Long grain/wild rice w/broc. added, chicken strips, and fresh veggies
Pork fried rice - used leftovers to make
Mac topped with salsa, smoked sausage and salad
SNACKS - oranges, fresh veggies, Triscuits and cheese, snack mix
How was your week? Any good deals? What have you all been doing on these winter days? This month is such a blah time - it is hard to motivate some days/weeks! I took this week off for the most part - need to get back to being busy this week.
FRANCES - just a note - please do not stop commenting! I will check the behind the scenes stuff daily. Not sure why your comments go there sometimes. Sorry.
HILOGENE and KIM - if you are reading, please know that you have been on my mind. I pray for you both every day. Praying your life is calming a little - I know nothing is normal. HUGS
I would like to ask for prayers please. My adult niece (R) was hit by a car on Monday evening (as a pedestrian). She was not expected to make it through the night - miraculously she did. She has endured back surgery, 2 leg surgery's, she has a tube to reduce swelling on the brain, and a breathing tube. Sadly, this is the 2nd time she has been hit in 2 years. She only a few months ago got out of a nursing home.
Her life has been tragic and sad (due to bad decisions). She has 2 adult daughters, and they were both there this week (another miracle). They have all been estranged for years. She is now not doing as well, and they believe breathing tube will be changed to trach, and brain activity is minimal. I don't know how many more miracles we can expect - it doesn't look good for her. I know God's Will be done.
I ask you pray for her, but especially her daughters, her mom and sisters for peace and comfort. Also, for the person that hit her (it was an accident). I cannot imagine what they are feeling. Thank you. This is such a sad situation.
Wishing you all a safe and healthy week. Blessings from my humble little home to you and yours.
God bless you all.
He will shield you with His wings. He will shelter you with His feathers. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor fear the dangers of the day.
Lord, please help us to put our trust in you. Whether at home or out - we know we have Your love and You protect us. The world seems scary, and many have suffered - just help us to face all things with trust and knowing that You are with us. Shield us, from our own fears. AMEN
