I love this post Helen!!!! So fun to know what's going on in each others lives :)

Bernadine said...

Definitely going to use this for a blog post this coming week. :)

I also don't feel in control but one day at a time as worrying about the future or even yesterday does not change them. :)

Michelle said...

This is a fun post and fun to see what is going on. Bernadine is right and although I know I shouldn't, I do end up worrying about things I shouldn't.

Right now, a minor warm up. Made it into the teens on the positive side! Lately, our highs have been in the single digits (Fahrenheit). Windchills about -30 even on some days, but mostly nights, so longing for spring.
I am back to work at the tax office and spent the day planning this next weeks meals for them. Shop tomorrow, cook the rest of the week and drop off and work in the office on Saturdays. My life until the end of April.
Lots of home projects being planned. More out of necessity as we have some serious issues with ice on the inside of our windows when it is really cold. Furnace not running properly. Got to love a crappy builder. Our own fault as we should of researched them. Greg fell in love with the model home and there was no convincing him. So now we pay to fix some serious screw ups.

Yes, very scrumptious products coming out everywhere, love Glitz though.

Looking At: Besides Laptop screen, toy story the movie, for the 100th time :-)
