Three on Thursday

Another week is almost gone. Here is what I am thankful for this week.

1) That my car will finally be ready to pick up tomorrow.

2) That my dad offered to loan us the money to fix my car before I had to ask him for a loan.

3) That I will be able to work from home tomorrow so we can return the rental car tonight and not pay for another day.

Books Read - January 2018

So far so good in 2018. I am 1 book ahead of schedule for my 52 in 52 goal for the year. In January I completed the following 4 books.

1) A Stash of One's Own by Clara Parkes - a collection of essays by different knitters on what stash means to them. Some are funny, some are sad but I really enjoyed the book.

2) Today Matters: 12 Daily Practices to Guarantee Tomorrow's Success by John C. Maxwell - an interesting book with some fun stories. Nothing really groundbreaking though.

3) Killer Reunion: A Savannah Reid Mystery by G.A. McKevett - in this installment our favorite PI goes home to Georgia for his high school reunion and finds herself the suspect when her old nemesis ends up murdered. This is my favorite cozy mystery series. This is not great fiction but it sure is fun.

4) Death of a Cozy Writer: A St. Just Mystery by G.M. Malliet - another cozy mystery series based upon the cases of a Detective Chief Inspector in England. There was a lot of build up in this book and it was not until about halfway through that the DCI shows up but it was a fairly enjoyable cozy.

Monday Musings

Another week is upon us. Here is what I am thinking about today.

1) Today is the 16th anniversary of my mom's death. It amazes me how it can still hit me at times. I has a bad day on Friday and while I was watching the opening ceremonies I started crying. My mom and I used to watch the Olympics together and the winter games were our favorite.

2) Little man had a snow day again today. Thar's 3 days in the past week. Luckily I was working from home last week so those were covered but I had to take today off. It sucks for those of us who don't have family members nearby who can watrch the kid on short notice.

3) We are currently without hot water. I am tired of things breaking around here. A few weeks ago the furnace went. Thankfully it was during a warm trend so the temps were in the 40s and it was not so bad. I am just glad that we rent and don't have to come up with money to fix this stuff.

4) We finally got the bad news about my car. It will hopefully be fixed on Thursday. We had to break down and rent a car for me. We rented a Chevy Acadia and little man likes it much better than my car. I like it too but the best part of my car is that it paid for.

Here are the pictures for the week.

This book is frightening and horrifying but I think very important as well.

Three on Thursday

Here is what I am thankful for this week.

1) That I have the ability to work from home Since I do not have a vehicle this week we either would have had to rent a car or I would have to take a week off without pay.

2) That hubby went grocery shopping today so we are all ready for the winter storm heading our way tomorrow.

3) This Super Bowl ad that made me laugh after a couple of days of feeling sorry for myself about the car accident.

Monday Musings on a Tuesday

Again I am a day late with this post. It seems to be the story of my life lately. Here is what is on my mind today.

1) I am trying really hard to break little man's electronic addiction. I signed him up for an art program at the library last Saturday and he complained the whole time. He was really upset that he was the only boy there. I told him in a few years he would enjoy being around a bunch girls but he didn't believe me.

2) Unfortunately on our way home we were in a car accident. We are ok but the poor car is not. I am without a vehicle until probably Friday.

3) I am working from home this week and loving it. Lately I have had a rough time at work dealing with the issues on our team. This week I can just do my job and not worry about the drama. It also makes me look forward to when we move offices in May and I will be working from home 2-3 days a week.

Here are the pictures for the week.

The boy and his creation
It is a creeper from Minecraft
There was an display of different LEGO creations at the library. Little man stated he wanted to make this Taj Mahal as well. His dad can help him with this.
