I'm in Mississippi!!!

It’s Friday again…time for another Peek at My Week post.


1.      What was a highlight of my week?

Tuesday! The temperature reached 77 degrees! WOO HOO!!!

2.      What lesson/s did I learn this week?

It isn’t spring yet. Following our 77 degree day (Tuesday), we had SNOW on Wednesday. LOL! It was very pretty snow – and it didn’t stick on the ground, so I was happy to see it!

3.      What did I make this week?

I tried a new recipe – Bacon Chili. It was okay, but I prefer my normal chili.

4.      What have I enjoyed doing this week?

I am spending a few days with my daughter – my Favorite Daughter – this week. We’re having lots of fun! Eating, talking, shopping, hanging out.

5.      If I could change one thing about this week, what would it be?

I would have cleaned up the house before I left on my trip.

6.      What did I do for this week’s 30-Minute Challenge?
What is a 30-Minute Challenge? It will vary from week to week, but basically, I am going to choose something to do – perhaps it’s an organization task that is calling out to me, or a topic I want to research, or (*gasp!) an exercise I want to try, etc. – and I will set the timer and invest 30 minutes in that challenge.

I guess this is cheating, since I showed you pictures yesterday, but I took the 30-minute challenge by re-organizing my Washi tape.

7.      What are my plans for the upcoming weekend?

I am spending it with my daughter! I’m really looking forward to a lot of the things we’ll do together, including attending worship at Morrison Heights Baptist Church.

SCORE TIME: Would I give this week a “thumbs up” or a “thumbs down”?

My goals for the coming week…

1.      I will vote! Now that may not seem all that exciting, except our polling place is at our church – right across the parking lot from our house. When we moved here over 2 ½ years ago, I was excited that I’d be able to walk to vote. Yea, right! I haven’t been home a single election day so have had to vote by absentee ballot every time. This time I plan to be home to vote.

2.      I will go to Card Club. I haven’t been for a few weeks and have missed it.

3.      I will swap out the Frolicking in the Forest Swap and mail it back to the participants, which means I’ll also open a new forest swap – Camping in the Forest.

Because I’m doing the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge, I also have a card to post to my blog today. This is #80.

This is the inside of my card:

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I’d love to hear what’s been happening in your life this week, too, so feel free to leave me a comment and tell me about it.

I used a card kit to make this card. The only product of my own that I used was Recollections Black Cardstock and Staples Ivory Cardstock.
