Monday Musings {4/15}

Copying my friend Charlotte again by doing some Monday Musings! Feel free to post your own musings ~ tell me in the comments so I can come visit! :)

What I'm thinking: Well I was going to do this post early today but then got sidetracked by laundry and then further sidetracked when the tragedy happened at the Boston Marathon. So sad and our prayers go out to the people in Boston.

What I'm reading: Still reading Song of Solomon in the Bible and finishing Organized Simplicity ~ The Clutter-Free Approach to Intentional Living by Tsh Oxenreider . Reading 42 Days to Fit by Brandy Ferguson, Emma Swanston, & Stacy Karen on Kindle.

What I'm listening to: Hubs watching TV - currently American Pickers.

What we're learning: Son is learning HTML and CSS and a little Javascript {that's all computer language lingo - used for creating websites, etc for those of you who don't know} through a free class at his school on Saturdays. He's coming along really fast and he loves it! He also started Tennis classes again, so he's relearning those skills! Me? Hmmm...not sure what I'm learning other than trying to learn diligence. :)

What I'm watching: Hubs has been gone a lot lately, so I've been watching a lot of movies on Instant Netflix. Hard to find a lot of good new ones there! But I did see a cute PG romantic comedy if you're a David Tennant fan and like Scottish scenery - The Decoy Bride.

What's cooking: Tonight was Parmesan Chicken and I think some Mini Meatloaves this week. Still working on planning the rest!

What I'm buying:  We need to buy some plants to put in planter boxes in our backyard, but we haven't fully decided what we want yet. Need to get on that ASAP!

What I'm thankful for: Thankful for another birthday! :) And thankful that such a special group of ladies have stuck with me to do the Couch-to-5K program and have signed up to do a 5K with me this week!

What I'm creating: Blog post? I really got nothin' this week - LOL!

What I'm planning: To jog a 5K this Thursday!! Woo Hoo! I really hope I can jog the whole thing, but I'll go as far as I can and walk the rest if I need to. And possibly a belated birthday outing with friends later in the week.

What we did this last weekend: Hubs and son were gone on a Boy Scout campout, so I just went for a jog, did some cleaning and tried to relax for my birthday. The relaxing part would have been a lot better if there hadn't been an ant invasion in the kitchen. :/ We quietly celebrated on Sunday after church - got my fancy coffee drink & hubs got one of our favorite family meals to-go from Tahoe Joe's, including my fave cheesecake! :) Oh - and how could I forget? We finally finished up our taxes and filed them using Turbo Tax. This is the first time in years & years that we have to pay something {only to Federal, getting some back from State still.}! But it has always been our goal to get it to even or as close as possible as we would rather have use of our money all year than let the government keep and use it. Did you get your taxes done early or just in time?

What I'm looking forward to: Completing that 5K!

A picture to share:

Field Day at son's school last Friday. They worked hard, but lost the Tug-o-War.

What are your plans for this week?

Have a blessed day friends!


  1. I can't wait to hear how your 5k goes. I'm SO proud of you my friend. You can do it.
    So what's with the bright pink shirt B is wearing? LOL!
    And the bombing was yet another tragedy. I don't know what this world is coming to but it makes it hard to be joyful sometimes.
    Big double knot your shoelaces cause tripping over them would be horrible size hugs to you! LOL!
    Just some BIG friendly advice.
    Love ya!

    1. Thank you friend! And yes, the pink shirt - we hoped he would get any team except Pink - LOL! So of course he got on that one! I don't even have a problem with guys wearing pink, but this color is a bright pretty floral pink. Not sure why the school picked it. They pick colors for the teams and then the teams base their names on the colors. B's team was The Pink Panthers. So he also had pink spray in his hair & whiskers drawn on. But they still came in last place - Boo.

  2. It's okay to take a week off from creating something! I don't often get that choice as I have a crafting business. But some would be nice to do nothing!

    We did our taxes early. With our little tax deduction, we knew we were getting back and wanted to pay off some small-ish debts. :)

    1. OK - if you say it's OK, then I'm good! :) Good for you on the taxes! We normally do ours much earlier.


I would love to hear your comments! Thank you for stopping and smelling the chocolates with me!! Currently disabled anonymous comments due to spam attempts - thanks for understanding!
