A Peek at My Week

It’s Friday, so it’s time for…


Something I loved about this week…

I got an unexpected package one day – from Amazon. I thought, ‘What did I order? I don’t remember ordering anything.’ I opened the package and discovered it was an early birthday present from my daughter. Remember how I told you last week that my husband couldn’t find me an Alaska Starbucks mug when he was in Alaska. Well, when my daughter heard that, she ordered me one from Amazon.

THANK YOU, Brittney!!!

Something I learned this week…

I learned that it’s not too early to be shopping for Christmas gifts. My son texted me one day this week and said he’d purchased a Christmas gift – and it’s for ME! **squeal**

Somewhere I went this week…

My husband was hungry for Chinese food so we went out to eat at our local Chinese restaurant one day this week. The food was delicious, the service was adequate, and the fortune I received in my fortune cookie brought a great big smile to my face.

I have three planned trips coming up in the next few months that will take me south. Hmmm! I think I’m ready to experience some “unexpected happiness.”

Something I created this week…

Well, I don’t know if you’d call it creating or not, but I made (canned) applesauce this week. While I can eat it, I’m not a big fan of it. But oh how I love making it – because it makes my house smell so wonderful!

Something I’m going to do this weekend…

I am so excited! I am going to a Kids Ministry workshop and also to a Vacation Bible School team meeting. I get to have fun for two whole days! WOO HOO!!! (Can you tell I’m excited?)

Something I want to accomplish next week…

I really would like to get some organizing done in my Cubbyhole (craft area) this week. It’s a task that is way past due. I also have some major events coming up in the near future that I need to be studying/preparing for, so that’s on my to-do list, too.

Did I take the 30-Minute Challenge this week?
What is a 30-Minute Challenge? Basically, I 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 set the timer and invest 30 minutes in that challenge.

Yes, I did! Brock and I took 30-minutes one beautiful afternoon and decorated our front porch for Halloween/fall. It was fun doing this with him. He’s so tall that it makes hanging those windsocks so much easier… and he loves helping!

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

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