Random Glimpses of the Week

Michael and I snatched a few minutes after one of Allie's appointments to do a wee bit of celebrating. This is our first time inside Dairy Queen since 2020. LOL  Please note it is Allie's hand and blizzard in the foreground. I am not holding two blizzards...and also note they are minis. I am hoping it doesn't tank the A1C test later this week. 

Michael, De'Etta and Allie

It's getting real! The banner and yard sign arrived. 

CoRielle walked down to a local coffee shop to do a bit of celebrating on their own. LOL

Millie loves play time with Stacia

I suppose I am going to need to spend a bit more time gardening and less time reading in the greenhouse very soon. LOL 

I was SHOCKED to see gas jump from $4.09 to $4.71 (and this was AFTER my fuel rewards were applied) in less than a week. I need to find out which day of the week gas prices rise and fill up strategically. LOL 

We've done a lot of driving this week. The cost is high, but the girls are getting lots of practice driving around town.  Allie finished up her gig helping with a short film created for a high school class. Stacia had several babysitting gigs. Allie worked with Lady. Food co-op was this week. Lifegroup was this week. Michael had a couple of appointments in Anchorage.  

I was thrilled to get one walk in the midst of a busy week...walking may be smarter as gas prices rise. 

A cart like this can only mean a BBQ is in the planning...

And when the cake decorating tackle comes is going to be a party. In this case we spent time this week prepping for Alliebration - our celebration of Allie. 

The girls and I ended the week by going to see Aida last night at our local community theater. It was a blast. Allie gifted me with a night out at the theater for my birthday in January. It didn't work out with friends and  we decided the three of us would go! It was a fun ending to a hectic week. 

We are two months into Lifegroup and I'm realizing I need to be sure we don't schedule a lot of out of the house activity and appointments on the weeks we have Lifegroup  and Wholesome Food Co-op (2nd and 4th Tuesday and Thursday).   Simply being aware of the heightened pace and scheduling accordingly will relieve stress around here. 

Stress?  Check out our favorite stress-relivers. They're growing fast. Millie is doing well with them. She simply ignores them...and we are always sure someone has a hand on her when we open the brooder. These guys love to fly out into our faces as we attempt to change water, shavings and food. 

The Barred Plymouth Rocks are getting so cute. They have a much more "in your face" personality than the Golden Bovans. We've called them our little ninjas. they love to run and fly at the others. 


Check it out! Note that while the sun rises and sets at the big bolded times, it is actually light for an hour on either side. This is the time of the year when keeping up with inside chores gets harder. Outside chores are screaming for attention. All the snow is finally melted around our yard. 

And so, a new week begins.
