Three Things Thursday – Hello September

I’m back! At least, partially… more on that later.

How about a little three things that made me smile to kick off the month?

Midnight’s been a real handful but an adorable one 🙂  He’s been trying to help me with my writing.

I managed to find a taste of Maine in my freezer aisle here in Oregon! I enjoyed it while remembering some of my favorite summer activities in Maine.

I’ve been getting to spend a faithful amount of time with my two favorite hooligans – my adopted-nieces are pretty awesome kiddos!

What are you grateful for as we step away from summer?

Three Things Thursday – July 21, 2016

I’ve been having a lot of fun catching Pokémon around town! I think even more than that I’ve been enjoying trying to get good pictures of them – this one made me happy because I’d been hoping to get a picture of one in front of Ole ( my favorite coffee place)!

Speaking of favorite coffee places… I discovered that another place I love (and the ones responsible for my coffee drinking in the first place) is expanding their location nearest to me! Hurray for more space for writing time!!

The weather has been, finally, starting to act like summer… this means some very pretty views as I’m out and about during lunch breaks 🙂


What made you smile this week?

Three Things Thursday – Silent Edition

I’m saving all my words for an epic Weekend Coffee Share on Saturday. So for now I will simply share three pictures with you – the words will come later.

Three Things Thursday is hosted by Nerd in The Brain over at This Nerds Life!  It’s a fun time to reflect on things that we are grateful for during the week!

Five Years! Wow! (Three Things Thursday)

WordPress just notified me that I’ve been blogging for FIVE YEARS!  True, only two of them have been regular blogging, and the past few months have been sporadic too… but it’s pretty cool to know I’ve been on here for five years!  And some of you have been with me the full time – which is pretty cool!

Oh, hey, and it’s THURSDAY!  Where has time gone?  So, that’s Number 1 of my Three Things Thursday!

2) The weather…  It’s been rainy, then sunny, indecisive weather!  I kind of love it!

3)  Ice Cream!!  I got some ice cream the other day — it was super yummy!

Three Things Thursday: Midnight Monster

It’s time for Three Things Thursday (hosted by Nerd in the Brain over at This Nerds Life!  A time to look back on some of the things that made me smile this week !  I started to do this over on Eclectic Alli Nails too, but here are three different things to make me smile!

Midnight Monster was having a lot of fun trying to fight the new Resistance Band I was using.  He is a precious silly critter…

Also I started a YouTube channel 🙂  A little Jamberry, a little Midnight Monster, a little whatever else I feel like 🙂

I went writing this weekend, which is always awesome!  My writing buddy and I haven’t gotten together in a LONG time, and it was good to get some words on the page again.

It was actually a really good weekend for the writing!  I spent much of Sunday talking to a friend of mine about a project we’re going to work on (right.. and I need to actually, you know, work on that… uhm..)  It’s feeling really good to be dusting off the writing skills and starting to get back into things.

And Jamberry was full of all sorts of cool announcements that made me very excited this week — I’ll be putting together a post about all of those over on Eclectic Alli Nails later today 🙂

Three Things Thursday! May 26 2016

Woot!  It’s Thursday!  Sure, I keep thinking it’s actually Friday but.. that’s okay.

Thursday means it’s time for Three Things Thursday (hosted by Nerd in the Brain over at This Nerds Life!  A time to look back on some of the things that made me smile this week !  I started to do this over on Eclectic Alli Nails too, but here are three different things to make me smile!

  1. Midnight is being an entertaining Monster. If he’s not trying to coax the birds to come closer to the window by chirping at them, he’s scaling my desk chair, or turning my feet into a pillow (because apparently a lumpy pillow is the place to sleep.20160525_215553
  2. Last weekend just flew by because I ended up having a some unexpected social time! Saturday was going to see Annie and getting dinner with one friend, and then Sunday I did some childcare in the morning followed by an unexpected lunch date with another friend!  No pictures from those, but it was great to have time to catch up with both of those friends!
  3. I’ve lost some weight 🙂  I don’t talk a lot about weight on this blog, but I’ve started this new health-class/program offered through my health care provider and it’s been really neat to see it being effective!  It’s not a diet (because those just don’t work) but a gentle adjustment to lifestyle and eating/exercise choices that seems to be working well for me.  It hasn’t taken a lot of weight off yet (I’ve been at it for about a month) but I think I’m also just starting to really make the changes that will make a difference.

Three Things Thursday – April 28, 2016

Three Things Thursday is a day to look back at three things that have made you smile and/or grateful over the past week. Hosted by Nerd In The Brain, it’s a great weekly thankfulness reflection.

It’s late…. but I started this post this morning and it’s been quite the day so I think, even more, I need to reflect on three things I’m grateful for!

Midnight has started taking to perching on the back of my desk chair. It’s adorable, and allows him to be “involved” in my work without being in my way. 🙂

Monday I met up with a new friend, in a place I hadn’t been in a part of the city I really haven’t gotten to spend much time.  It was all-together a pretty awesome time!imageAnd finally, Newsies… I got to see the touring broadway cast of Newsies!  It was pretty awesome 🙂

 

What are you grateful for today?
