Highlights From This Past Wk (or is it Last?)

I have a few posts that I am in the middle of, and, even though I know I should finish them, I am going to do this one; cause I wanna :)

So...I know you have all been missing my blog posts and pictures! Ha! Well, never you fear, b/c I am still posting stuff on FB, and IG. So, hop on over there and take a look!!

Here are some highlights from this last week:

Monday, Mom took me out for brunch at Denny's. I wish I could say that I had a health meal, but sadly, I did not. It was good, though..and we had a nice talk for an hour.

Tuesday, I met up with K at the library, and we hung out, talked, and I read, and she did work. H had a soccer camp all this last wk, so she spent her mornings on this side of town. Hubby made (purple) cabbage rolls and pierogies for supper. They were VERY good!

Wednesday, I went to SIPS at church, then went to our only really good mall in this town for a walk about, then grabbed a light lunch at a local cafe/bakery/coffee shop, Zack's Coffee, and then did some Wal-Mart shopping. Wednesday evening, I went to a friends surprise birthday party, which was held at her house. I spent an hour there, then went to the park for a bit.

Thursday, I spent some of the morning/early aft outside in our yard, reading (what else?) magazines. I haven't spent much time out there...usually bc I am doing stuff on my laptop in the house, or watching TV, or, I have some other lame excuse. Then, I met a friend for a light lunch, and we spent a good couple of hours catching up. I hadn't seen her in awhile, so it was fun to spend some time with her. I went to the park, and then K invited us for supper. I ended up twisting Anker's arm, so we both ended up going, which was really nice. We had a lovely evening with them, and we even played a game of UNO (H is learning, so cute).


Friday, was pay day, and what a pay day it was, I got some money from all my past lieu days given to me from when I was off sick. That was Sa-weet!!! I met my SIL C, at Starbucks "up the hill", and we visited for an hour or so. She had things to do, and I had to work, so it wasn't a long time, but a good time :) LOL. Work went well, and it went fairly fast, which was nice.

Saturday, I met my friends for coffee and a light lunch at McD's, at yet another part of town, then I went to the library for a couple of hours. I ended up babysitting H, and I also got a free supper, and a free coffee from them when they got home :) I also got out their popcorn maker, and had me a big ol' bowl of popcorn :) Oh yah, I also am liking Grape Seed Oil...I wouldn't mind buying it, but I don't know what else I could use it in, except for popcorn (they have one of those turnaround popcorn things similar to this). I watched FULL HOUSE, which I have discovered is on NF (which we don't have), and I told them that I would be happy to watch H, so I can watch it. I am in the middle of season 1..only 6.5 more seasons to go!!! Oh the 80's hair! The outfits!! And to think that I lived through that!!! Anyway...H and I had a short but sweet time. We watched some Veggietales' Silly Songs with Larry, and I read him a story. He is so cute, and chill!!! Anyway...when A and K came home, they bought me a coffee/mocha from PDK Cafe. It was SO good!!! We had a quick chat, and then I went to Wal-Mart again to get a few things. I bought this weeks magazines. It has been awhile (ok, a few weeks) since I have done that, and I am trying to not do it nearly as much as I used to, but every once in awhile, I cave. Besides, it has the JonBenet Ramsay case on it. I HAD to get it...I am really enthralled with that case...and so is my mom. Did you know that her dad is a Christian, and he wrote a book a few years back? I got it out of the library, and I only read through parts of it, but it was quite good.

Today (Sunday) I went to church, then to Starbucks, then to the park/beach for a few hours. I read, I swam, I got tanned :) Fun times!!

The week has been pretty warm for the most part. FINALLY! We have had some not-so-great weather since, oh I don't know..early July?...and it is nice to have some decent weather (it actually hasn't been THAT bad, and I do like to remind people that...buuut...it certainly hasn't been in the 30's...or at least when it has been also been sunny...for awhile, that's for sure.

Anker has had a bit of a rough week, but he has cut down his smoking to almost half! He is on the patch right now, and he has been doing pretty well at it. He still smokes in the morning, and evening, but at least he is trying. He didn't come to church with me today, as he has started up one of his meds again, which made him really tired after he took it (oops!). I hope that we can get back into BOTH going to church together really soon!

We are both watching the Olympics, though I haven't been as into them as I normally am. I am very proud of on how well Canada has been doing...13 medals already..ok, I know that's not much, but we are just over a week in.."they" were/are predicting that "we" get 19-22, so we are getting there!!! I also love on how well they are all doing in showing true sportsmanship (HS, I'm looking at you!!). I am so proud!!! The Winter Olympics are "our" thing, anyway :) I like to PVR them, then watch my favourite sports when I feel like it.

I am still watching my regular shows...Y&R, Motive, Dateline, 20/20..JJ. I also am thinking of starting up Frasier again. I was in the middle of Season 3 when I stopped back in May. I am also thinking of starting up another series. A friend of mine was watching Gossip Girl...then there is of course, Gilmore Girls...and I love my some Murder, She Wrote...but I am looking for something else...:) Any suggestions (I don't have NF, so please no, NF-only shows, though I guess you can probably get most of those now on DVD...and no OITNB..lol). I am thinking of trying Outlander. My SIL was talking to me about it...and she thinks that I might like it...so, maybe?

Our garden is growing..slowly, but surely. Hubby canned beets the other day. We also are getting some tomatoes :) Yum!!! He also moved the sunflowers over, and they are now by our bedroom window, so I love to look at them. Again, hope over to my IG Feed and take a look!!

I will try to do a picture-only post sometime this week.

So, that's a little update on us, and how we are doing.
