A Peek at My Week

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


1.      What was a highlight of my week?

I went out to run errands on Thursday – WITHOUT a coat! Woo Hoo! Spring is here!

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

I learned how to be involved in a conference call. I’ve never done one before and had no clue how to go about it. Welcome to the 21st century, Jeanette. (tee hee!)

3.      What did I make this week?

I made a lot of progress on my lesson plans for my Thailand trip that will take place in June. We’ll be teaching Bible School to American children while their parents are in meetings.

4.      What have I enjoyed doing this week?

My big news that I told you about a couple of weeks ago but couldn’t say what it was…. well, this week I got to tell. How fun! Did you hear me shouting it from the roof tops? My daughter has accepted a teaching job in the bush of Alaska for the fall of this year. It has been a dream of hers to do this………… and I’m so excited that her dreams are coming true!

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

I would have slept more. Seems the nights have been way too short this week.

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 want an Alaska bracelet or necklace to wear to remind me to pray for my daughter as she prepares for the transition in her job – plus, when people saw it they would ask about it and I’d have reason to share my news. So, I spent 30 minutes one afternoon searching online for the item I want to purchase. I didn’t find it by the time the 30 minutes was up… but I’ll try again.

7.      What are my plans for the upcoming weekend?

I’m one of the guest speakers at a Women’s Conference on Saturday. That will be an exciting part of my weekend.

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

My goals for the coming week…

1.      I will work on Thailand lessons… I hope to have the third and fourth days of lesson plans mostly ready by the end of the week.

2.      I didn’t make it to card class last week (insert sad face) so plan to go this week! I also want to look for some things for my Thailand lessons while I’m in the small city where the card class is held, so I have two reasons to go.

3.      I will work on the publicity for the Annual Women’s Meeting in our state that is coming up in May. That means lots and lots of phone calls to make.

I also have a card to show you today. I am in the Unidentified Image Card Swap on SCS, which means the hostess chooses the image and we all create cards with the images she sends us. Darlene is the current hostess and she sent us such fun images to use. 
THANK YOU, Darlene!

Here's the card I made:

Your card is too cute. I love the fun paper and colors.

Conference calls...oh my goodness...I like how you welcomed yourself to the century!!! Wow, I have been on some doozies, they were the story of my life for awhile - Like the one with all of the national people in my position and a lady was not on mute and asked her child if she had to go p** p**! That's a CLM {career limiting move} for sure! You could have heard a pin drop!!!
