The Weekly [2.17-23.19]

By | February 25, 2019

In the last couple of years, I have quit writing posts to recap my week or month and while many of you might not find them interesting, I enjoy looking back through time and remembering what was going on. I think I’m going to start doing a weekly post on Mondays called “The Weekly.” I’ve seen this from some other bloggers and I kinda dig it.

The Weekly

– Every Monday when I drop Alex off at scouts I make the block and I see my building where I work on campus. It really looks cool at night.
– Last week I made a big pan of chicken alfredo and got a new wine to try, which I ended up really liking.
– Thursday nights are my night to watch my 5 nieces and nephews and I bring dinner to them. Here’s the little one who love ketchup so much he licked the plate!
– It’s fun coming home to Katniss. One day she was sitting on the brick ledge at the front door.
– I started physical therapy this week to try and alleviate neck pain, which is causing daily headaches. This this tiger is in the waiting room.
– Over the weekend, one my nieces stayed with me part of the weekend. She loves Uncle Rob’s Smartie Pops while losing herself in a TV show.

-Friday night my niece, Elly, came and spent the night with me while her sister and mom went to Atlanta for a dance competition.
-Saturday, I enjoyed lunch at Niffer’s with one of my former students, Rachel. Since graduating, she has moved to Huntsville, AL where she has a good job now. I always love getting to catch up with her. The lasting friendships that come out being a student supervisor is the best part of the job.
-At work, our new dean started which has been long awaited.
-Rob and Alex left midday on Friday to go to Florida on a Boy Scout Trip to swim with the manatees.
-Like I said earlier, I started physical therapy this week. I have been getting daily headaches mainly caused by tension in my neck. My PT, Christy did a different type of therapy on my; neck exercises and dry needling, which is supposed to relax the muscles where inserted. The jury is still out on that.
-One day I was scrolling through FB and saw a clip from a sermon series they’re doing at Highland Park UMC, which happens to be where my Dad got married the 2nd time. The series is called The Marriage Project. I listened to both preachers version of each Sunday. So inspiring!

Watched lots of Youtube:
Mari Johnson – Just found this travel vlogger who is going to starting the PCT in the Spring
Peter McKinnon – one of my all time favorites. I don’t miss or skip too many of his videos.
Anna Akana – Monica Church mentioned her in one of her videos, so I decided to give her a try. Didn’t fall in love with her videos so far.
Monica Church/Other Monica – Monica is another one of my favorite vloggers, who I don’t miss or skip her videos. She’s got 2 channels that are both great.
Cosmopolitan Cornbread – I met Constance when I was a contributor for Alabama Women Bloggers (that actually went away after I quit writing for it.) Constance is homesteader who captivates my attention with all of videos. She inspires me!

So that sums up my week, or least everything I can remember! I hope this week to make notes so that on Sunday night, I won’t have such a hard time remembering everything. Hope you have a great week!

    I like posts like this. There is nothing better than pasta and wine together!!! I hope your neck pain gets better and the physical therapy works!

      Yes, pasta and wine are a total weakness of mine. Thanks, I think we’re going to have to try something else at PT, but I still have high hopes.

    I just drove by Highland Park UMC over Christmas…ha, ha! We drove around the SMU campus when we were in Dallas since that is one of my daughter’s college possibilities. Thanks for the tips on the you tube accounts. I’m always looking for new things to watch on YT. I hope you’ll come link up with Hello Monday again! Have a wonderful week!

      SMU is where 2 of my cousins went as well as several folks I graduated with. I hope to get back over to that area when I come back to visit family next time. Such a beautiful area.
