TerrificTuesday

This past week there were some great moments and some hard moments! But today I am putting the hard stuff away and just focusing on the good!

We also had a great Father’s day! I made him a nice breakfast, then he and I had a nice lunch out and we finished off the day with a movie with his boys and a meal together at home.  It was a good day!

(no linky because it’s work and no one was really doing it.  If you want to do it with me, just borrow the graphic above and link back to this post!)

Hope you find a reason to smile today!!

As I mentioned yesterday, last week was a blur and I didn’t even remember to post my TT! But this week school is out for most of us, Hubs has 3 more days, and I can relax some! So, here are a few things that make this Tuesday Terrific:

My new header… That is my Hubs, J1(18), J2(16), J3(12) and Sissy(5.5). I loved my flowers but was ready for a bit of a change!

I am blessed!

Normally I post this first thing in the morning, but I had a deadline I needed to meet before I could blog. In fact, now I am so tired that I am a bit discouraged and listening to that voice in my head that says ‘why bother? No one will read it.” But then I remember that I need to write this post to keep those thoughts at bay. If I think on positive, happy things, I will remain positive. So today here is a quick list of things that make this Tuesday Terrific:

  • leftover chicken in the fridge, just enough to make a family favorite without a lot of prep!
  • tonight is knit night!
  • no new bills in the mail
  • tomorrow I plan to get in the water to exercise! I so love the water!
  • my little house and my little family
  • a great collection of books to be read and about an hour and half to do just that!

I am blessed!

I don’t know anyone who is watching the videos of the aftermath of the tornadoes and not holding their families a bit closer today.  Lord, please be with the families who have lost loved ones, or a home or both.  Father, be with them today and let them feel your comfort and love. Give those who can go there and help extra strength and bless them.  Help those of us who can’t go there to find ways to make a difference – maybe it’s to give to the Red Cross or some other chartity that is probably already there making a difference!

Once again I am writing a Terrific Tuesday post after a tragedy.  And, once again, I am determined to keep doing it.  Terrific Tuesday is a weekly chance to share what you is making you smile.  Maybe it’s a person…a product…an ideal.  Whatever it is, it is a chance to be a smile on the internet!  We have enough sadness, let’s post some blessings! To participate, all you need to do is write a post on your blog, come back here and link up your post so others can see what you think is Terrific on Tuesday! 😀  And, please tell your friends so they can join us!

I’ve been saving a few things – little things that have made me smile!

First, not so little, we are done with homeschooling until August! Woot!  Here is J2 at our celebratory lunch!

endofyearcelebrationTrust me, he is happy, but he is a teenager! 😉

I also found a couple of products that I love!  First, my son, J3 found this one:

blush

 

It is a Glade Refill in their Blush collection called “Pink Diamond”.  It is so nice that (since he is gone to Science Camp) I have ‘borrowed’ it to put in my office! Yummy! Makes me wonder if it’s a perfume I can buy (I’m so NOT a fashionista!).  The label tells me the scent is Plumeria and Sweet Honeysuckle.  LOVE IT!

And, when I was shopping with my sister, we saw this nail polish (you can tell I took this picture as it’s oh so slightly fuzzy – sorry about that!) called Fuzzy Coat from Sally Hansen.

fuzzycoatnailAs you can see from the pictures, it is a nail polish with textures in it. But what makes it so fun is that the names are all knitting related.  The one above is all All Yarned Up and others in the series are Tweedy, Wool Knot, Wool Lite and more! Check it out!

So, what about you?  Don’t make this too hard. You can write a book about your blessings or just share a photo or a quick note about what made you smile this week. No rules! ok…one rule. Please link to the actual post and not just to your blog.

It’s May! We had some summer weather last week – but this week we are back in Spring! Love it!

This week, Hubs is still on vacation – he goes back to school in a week. But he’s getting all sorts of things done! Love that! Yesterday he put up a trellis for my Star Jasmine!

As you can see, it’s placement is nice because it’s aroma can waft in the house on these nice Spring days but also give us a buffer from the street.
