A Peek At My Week

It’s Friday… and I’ve decided it’s time for another Peek at My Week post.


1.      What was a highlight of my week?

Our Brock’s birthday was Tuesday. He loves presents, so I try to make sure he has LOTS of them, which is easy to do since everything he wants is just a dollar or two (and consumable.) He opened all 18 packages in mere moments of time. I enjoyed watching him tear into each gift and then promptly put it to the side as he reached for the next gift. After all, it’s tradition.

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

Baby birds leave home without any warning. “My” three baby robins were in their nest Wednesday morning, but by lunchtime they were gone. I miss my little feathered friends!

3.      What did I make this week?

I made some personal name cards (like business cards, only I don’t have a business). They turned out kind of cute.

4.      What have I enjoyed doing this week?

I enjoyed flip flop weather. I hate shoes and always look forward to warm weather so I can switch to flip flops. This week I only had one pair of my socks in the laundry – that’s a very good week!

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

I would have done the laundry a few days earlier. Yikes! That was some mountain of laundry.

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 didn’t do a 30-minute challenge this week – the week was challenging enough all by itself. ;)

7.      What are my plans for the upcoming weekend?

We are going to take a little 2-day trip to visit a favorite aunt and also to go put flowers on my precious father-in-law’s grave. This is a new road that we travel and not a day goes by that I don’t miss him.

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

My goals for the coming week…

1.      I will be leaving for Thailand in just under three weeks. My lesson plans are finished, but I still have “busy” work to do for the lessons we’ll teach the children. I plan to work on that this week.

2.      I need to complete cards for a swap and get them in the mail, since the due date is approaching.

3.      I need to trim up some overgrown mess in the flower pots on our back patio. I’ve been hoping my husband would do it, but that doesn’t seem to be happening, so I guess I will take matters into my own hands.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I appreciate you so much!

What a busy week - and it sounds as though it is not going to slow down any time soon. Love the fact you are a shoe-less fiend like me :-) Better bare than flip flops as far as I am concerned.
