A Peek at My Week

peekatmyweek2peekatmyweek3My Biggest Blunder this Week (Also My Biggest Laugh)

I am talking with two friends when A says, “Okay, I am going to share a story with you. It’s a little,” and she shakes her head, “embarrassing. I hope it doesn’t cause your opinion of me to drop any lower.”

“Don’t worry,” I interject, “my opinion of you can’t fall any lower than it already is.”

Friend B says, “So it’s already that low?”

By now we three are laughing and I am trying to dig myself out of my word hole which is leaking water like crazy.

“What I meant was that nothing you share could lower my opinion of you.”

“So you admit it is pretty low?”

(Once again I learn that my mouth and mind are not on the same radio frequency. But like I said, it also caused quite a spree of laughter. And from shared laughter comes much good.)


Something I am enjoying this week:

 Cooler evenings and mornings with just a slight hint of fall.


Something I am glad I did this week:

Reconnected with an old friend I hadn’t seen or talked to for a long time. Nothing fancy, just a walk in the park, iced tea at Starbucks, and soul connecting conversation.


Something I am enjoying wearing this week:

Black and white floral shorts. Not only are they comfortable, but they are so me.


A kitchen success this week:

Turkey Pumpkin Chili

As I am making it, I read the ingredient list four times wondering where are the beans? I have never made chili that did not call for beans.  A few more ingredients go into the pot and I carefully read the instructions three times, thinking there is a mistake and the beans were shorted or forgotten. I am on a mission to find the beans and make sure they are put in the pot. No success. I find no beans anywhere in this recipe. Finally, I figure maybe it doesn’t have any beans and continue cooking the chili. It turned out to be tasty, even without beans. I later learn that not all chili has beans.


Greatest frustration the week:

Technology, of course. Hands down. All I am saying is that it had to do with two picture programs on my computer who were as combatable as two tom cats sharing a tiny cage.


Best gift this week:

A plaque from my sister, which I will write about soon.


Something I was craving this week:

Coconut cream pie.


Most relaxing evening this week:

Sitting on a porch strung with twinkly lights as the night descended into quiet darkness.


Something I learned this week:

Sometimes in relationships it is necessary to hit the restart button. To forget about the past and start anew with better habits, new memories, a fresh slate.

(Isn’t this what God does? Each day and mercy is new.)


peekatmyweek5The bible verse I am trying to put into practice this week:

Ephesians 4:2 “Don’t be proud. Be completely gentle. Be patient. Put up with each other in love.”


The perfect mood changer:

A hug or shared laughter. (Especially after technology glitches.)

Hope you had a good week too.
