Skipping Thankful Thursday

 Not because I don't have things to be thankful for but simply because we were gone for 6 days and I am in catch up mode.

Yesterday Hubby went to Trader Joe's for our big weekly grocery shop and as we were out of all perishable produce got lots of that. 

I actually thought about a bit of a dinner menu plan so last night we had salmon, mashed potatoes and arugula salad with cucumber, red pepper and bits of apple. I really like having Bob's Red Mill Potato Flakes on hand to make mashed potatoes very easily.

I did 3 loads of laundry including bedding and towels. Did the dog's bedding on Tuesday right after we got home thankfully. Called Amazon about a mix up on credit for a returned item, returned another item via UPS, call Kiwi Co to change the Kiwi crate subscription for our granddaughter to the 5-8 year old range instead of 3-4 one. Caught up on emails. Picked up a book at the library and was able to go inside which was great and strange at the same time. Stopped at the clubhouse to discuss repair options for a loose stair railing and the potential of a new steady renter. Got our key back from our lovely neighbor who brings in our mail and packages while we are gone. Got anniversary card in the mail for son and DIL we just visited. Plus all the regular stuff.

Today is call the vet to confirm if dog needs the test scheduled. Cut down last 2 drawings and take them to framer. Pick up 2 completed ones. Try to renew driver's license online. Help Hubby pay bills online to refresh his memory since I do it and it is not a good idea for only one member of a couple to be up to date on all that (his request by the way). Message doctor about need for new prescription for refills. Dog gets a long walk and I get a stretching/Pilates work out today.

Dinner tonight is going to be turkey burgers with sliced tomato on brioche buns. Sides to be determined.

Hope you have a great day!   


  1. Boy, are have you been busy with all the little things that really sucks up our time and energy.

    1. They do don’t they. I feel like I am at the start of a race to get extra things done along with the routine before my foot surgery in late June.

  2. Sounds like a productive few days, and yeah for pleasant neighbors! I was busy today in close to a pre-pandemic way. A mix of errands and chores as we get ready for weekend!company, and lunch + art museum with a girlfriend, all parties vaccinated of course. Feels so nice!

    1. It is starting to feel a bit normal for those of us who are vaccinated. Now to get the other half of the adult population to get their shots!

  3. I think it's great you are having your art pieces framed so you can actually view them :)

  4. Hope you enjoyed your visit with the family. I am off with two of my granddaughters and their mom and dad to visit my mom again in Kentucky. Mom hasn't met Camila, her namesake, so it will be a special time.


Week 12: One week until move & the pup's to do list

The pup's to do list is getting shorter as I picked up a copy of his vet records and a new address tag. Still have to change his microch...
