Hey ya'll, did ya miss me last week? I missed my Monday blog hopping, but had fun with my little getaway at the beach with a friend and her boys.

For Today... July 27th, 2015

Outside my window... The sun is starting to peek. Its 64 degrees right now, and supposed to be a sunny day.

I am thinking... that I am in the mood to do some baking, what I don't know, but something yummy!

I am thankful... for window air conditioners. While I would love to have central air (it would be much quieter), I am thankful for the two units we have right now. It makes sleeping so much easier at night!

I am wearing... I am still in a nightie, a leopard print one at that. I will be changing into some shorts and a tank top once I shower and get ready for the day.

I am creating... Cup cozies, dish towels, heating rice bags.... oh my! (LOL) Isn't this just the cutest owl cup cozy??

I am going... to the groomer later with Lici, she needs her nails trimmed and her stanky butt cleaned.

I am wondering... about the interviews I had last week... yep plural, I had two of them. I really, really, really want the first one I had, but we shall see. If I don't get either I will be thankful for the job I still have.

I am reading... Psalm 119 still. I need to find a book to bring with me to Washington, or go through the ones I have on my Kindle.

I am hoping... to hear something on the interviews I had last week.

In my kitchen... Menu for the week:
Monday ~ spaghetti and garlic bread
Tuesday ~ Sloppy Joes and fries
Wednesday ~ pancakes and sausage or bacon
Thursday ~ pizza
Friday ~ leftovers for the hubby.... me I have a Tastefully Simple party at the house, so will be munching on all the goodies with my friends
Saturday ~ don't know

A favorite quote for today...

One of my favorite things... homemade popcorn. I made a big ole bowl last night... and with the boys no longer home, I got to enjoy it all by myself!

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday ~ laundry, housework, crocheting, taking Lici to the groomers to get her nails clipped and to get stinky bum cleaned (sorry, its gross, but it needs to be taken care of as she is stinkin up my house!
Tuesday ~ working on crochet projects, and getting the app turned in for the craft show (still weird to me that we need to "apply" to a craft show...
Wednesday ~ work
Thursday ~ work
Friday ~ grocery shopping, cleaning and preparing the goodies for my party
Saturday ~ unsure of my plans as of right now for the day
Sunday ~ church and ??

From the board room... From my Crafts board. A little DIY - necklace/bracelet holder. This is something I made.
