My Life List-October 17th Edition

LOOKING OUT MY WINDOW....

Another beautiful day here in Kansas. It is already in the mid-seventies. They say we will hit 91* today. Isn't this supposed to be fall?? But I don't mind. As long as there is a light breeze. And there is. And as long as the sun is shining. And it is!!!! Plenty of time ahead for winter and cold if that is what you like.

AS I PONDER....

I am sitting here waiting for Harley to get out of the shower. She doesn't have school today! So we are cleaning out her clothes closet. And the drawers. And see what she needs for winter.  






WHAT I AM LEARNING...

I am learning about my new Iphone!! My old phone was an android and I've had it forever. It just wasn't working as good as it could have. My entire family are Iphone people so I jumped on the bandwagon. I got a 6splus. Bigger screen! (Old eyes, you know). There is a bit of a learning curve. But I think I will get it soon. Isn't it pretty?









WHAT I 'M CREATING...

My mantle for fall.....









WHAT I'M READING....


I'm not much further into my reading from where I was last week. Still The Help and I'm still listening to The Sister. 


WHAT I'M WATCHING...


Yesterday I binge-watched 90-Day Fiance. Oh my goodness. Another train wreck show. These people meet on-line. One lives in the United States and the other lives in another country. They apply for a K1 Visa and come to the United States, but in order to get to stay they have to get married within 90 days. Simply amazing. The Russian girls come across as 'gold-diggers'.  



WHAT I'M HEARING...


I am listening to the local news right now. Not much going on in my part of the world. I guess that is a good thing!

Pictures to share...



Taking a picture with daddy
before homecoming dance


Why can't teenage girls leave their tongues
in their mouth??


WHAT I'M DRINKING....


I am currently having my first cup of French vanilla laced coffee.


WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE KITCHEN...


Monday...Autumn Chopped Salad

Tuesday...Sweet potato, bacon, egg skillet

Wednesday..Grilled chicken & strawberry wrap

Thursday...Chinese Chicken Salad

Friday...Broccoli Cheese Soup

Saturday...Homemade Pizza

Sunday...Sloppy Joes & Chips

A QUOTE I WANT TO SHARE...









LOOKING FORWARD....




















A peek into my week...


  Monday...Harley has no school today. We are cleaning out her clothes. Darian works

  Tuesday...Maybe a secret plan

  Wednesday...Harley is taking the PSAT at school and then they have Citizenship Day. Darian will go to his soldier training

  Thursday...No plans here. But I am asking everyone say prayers for Justin today! He is making big life decisions! Darian works today.

  Friday...Nothing planned

  Saturday...Happy Birthday Justin!! Harley's church group is producing Enchiladas 

  Sunday...Darian is working!


A final thought...

Hoping you are all having a wonderful Monday. Let's get the most out of this week!!

  2. Welcome to the iPhone world! I have the 6s but I can't remember what color it is because I have a cover on it. :-) Your mantle is really pretty.

  3. It's beautiful weather here, too. Not that unusual; I hope it stays nice for all the little beggars in a couple of weeks.

  4. Will say a prayer for Justin. Your fall mantle looks so pretty! Enjoy the warm days; they will be a welcome relief before the winter weather descends on you. Congrats on getting an iPhone! Definitely a learning curve, but I'm sure you will enjoy it!

  6. Oh darn! I'm really wrestling with my decision not to buy anything "i", and here you have a new play-pretty! My Samsung is circling the drain as we speak, but I've always thought of Apple consumers as elitists. (Mebbe there's a wee chip on my shoulder?)

    Your mantle looks so lovely and subtle. I adore Autumn, but some folks just go way overboard, you know?

    That image of Justin and Paige is wonderful!!! I'll for sure say a prayer on his behalf. (God knows the details!)

    1. I have a brother that feels that way abut Apple, Myra. I am not an elitist in any way shape or form. LOL! Thank you for the mantle praise. I'm not an over the top kind of person. Thank you for the prayers. Yep God knows the details already!! LOL

  7. It rained today, but by Wednesday we're supposed to be the 90s. I think we're having almost the same weather. Weird.

  8. It's early Tuesday morning as I tupe this comment and that means "maybe a secret plan" day at your house. Hope it's WONDERFUL! What a pretty fall mantle. I am always amazed at what a few hours south of here does to the temperature. Enjoy it while you have it! Happy Tuesday.

    1. My secret plan blew up with car problems. You know how that it?

      Delete
    2. Oh no! I do know how it is, though. My engine light is on right now and I just had a torn bushing replaced. I hope your car will be okay. We grams have to get around!

      Delete
    3. Yes, I have to have a car. This one is leaking oil pretty badly! Hope I can get it in to the mechanic soon. Why does everything have to cost so much??

  9. I just got the same phone as you. I am liking it but it is much bigger than the old one and doesn't fit into the purse compartments as well. Whatever your surprise is today I hope it is fun. Justin will be in my prayers and I shared your wrestle with pigs quote with my son. Thanks

    1. I don't carry a purse Wendy. But I need to get a bigger wristlet because this phone doesn't fit into it now. Thanks for the prayers

  10. Will be praying for Justin. Looks like a great week ahead for you. Your mantle does look wonderful. I always wished I had one but instead decorate the top of my entertainment center. A surprise day sounds interesting. You'll have to let us know what it was. Hope you have a terrific Tuesday!

    1. Thank you for the prayers! Thank you for your mantle praise. I think if I didn't have a mantle I would put up a shelf for my season decorating!! Not going to be any surprises here today. Car is having problems!

  11. Love my iPhone! I only have a 6 not a 6+ because I keep it in my pocket at work a lot! Our weather is cooling off some but the humidity is still pretty high for this time of year. I can't wait for that to be over!

  13. Prayers for Justin. I transitioned from an android to an iPhone 6 last year. It made blogging a little harder, but I'm glad I moved over.

    1. Thank you for the prayers. The more people praying for him the better. I don't blog on my phone so that is a good thing!

  14. An entertaining read as usual Paula. I love my iphone and ipad but I still have a windows laptop. Enjoy the rest of your week and hope things work out ok for Justin.
