Give Thanks

It always seems like we go straight from Halloween to Christmas.  Most retail places completely skip by Thanksgiving.  Why? Because they don't want you to be thankful for what you've got, they just want you to spend money on new stuff.  I still want to see Fall decorations in November!  I want the emphasis to be on family and friends and counting the blessings we have. As tempting as it may be, I refuse to buy Christmas decorations and such until the week of Thanksgiving.  We always put up our Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving.  Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas, but each season should stay in order in its own time.

So, this month, I will giving thanks for at least one thing each day.

1 - For Paydays (and that I have a job)
2 - For getting to go to an Aggie game at Kyle Field. Gig 'em Aggies!
3 - For the Sandhill Cranes that hang out in the back of the property. I love their calls and they usually signal cooler weather.
4 - for only very minor damage when someone backed into my car
5 - That my Lord and Savior chose ME to spend eternity with
6 - For beautiful Texas sunsets
7 - For my Daddy and all the things he does for me (including installing my new kitchen faucet)
8 - For Fridays!

19 - That my son still wakes up and the first thing he wants is a hug from his Mama
20 - That I get to fill a couple of shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child and help brighten some children's day.  Also...I am now an active Distributor for The Gourmet Cupboard again.
21 - For finally getting all the plumbing leaks fixed in the kitchen

Things I Have Learned About OneNote

I have spent a couple of years looking for that planner peace and have not been able to stick with any certain planner for more than a couple of months. Either the planner is too bulky to carry around or it's too small to fit all the info (and my ever-growing sticker collection) or it doesn't allow me to easily add extra pages, etc. So, I have been working in Microsoft OneNote to create a dynamic Digital Bullet Journal and I have learned several things along the way.  #digibujo  
I will share some things with you that I have figured out with trial and error that might save you some hassle. This info applies to OneNote in general, so even if you don't plan or journal, stick with me.
First and foremost, OneNote has several versions.  Each will look different and have various functions.  The most robust and feature-rich is the OneNote 2016 program for the desktop. Then there's the OneNote "app" for Windows 10. It does not have all the functions of the 2016 progr…

Getting My House In Order

I'll be the first one to confess that I am NOT the world's best housekeeper. I have been a single mom of my 18-year old "baby" since he was just a couple of months old and it hasn't always been easy. As a matter of fact, I think the toddler was more tidy than the teenager. He has a habit of opening cabinets and not closing them, dropping things on the floor wherever he happens to be, leaving items on the counter and so on. After lots of arguments and not making much headway, I decided to pick my battles and let him do his thing in his own room. Then a few things made their way to the living room and little by little, you get used to things being out. And yes, I got lazy and didn't feel like messing with it.  Then one day I looked around and thought that if someone happened to pop in unannounced, I would be totally embarrassed. So, something had to give.

There are as many methods of cleaning and decluttering as there are ways to make a mess.  I have looked thro…

It's official!  I'm now also a driver for Uber. Here's hoping the two programs overlap nicely.

My Referral Code is denisev472ue and you can get a 1st rider discount or a bonus for signing up as a driver using my code.

I am driving in the Brazos Valley - Brazos and Burleson Counties.
