February 2017 $50 Your Way Giveaway!!

Congratulations goes out to Debra G, the winner of my first winner of 2017! Debra requested a Amazon Gift Card. Have fun shopping Debra!!!

January 2017 seemed to fly by. I know I say this all the time but………. danggggggggg time is going SO FAST!!!  My postcard MYSTERY is still a mystery.  I received postcards in 2017 scattered throughout the months, no one ever fessed up. They stopped as mysteriously as they started. My suspect list consists of my oldest Daughter Selena. Son-in-law Dan. Or gal pal Sherry!! NO ONE ever fess up!! These mysterious postcards arrive in the mail with one or two lines written out for a song that I hate! I HATE the song!! The postcard picture and lyrics are just enough to get that song playing in my head again. For DAYS!!! The plan is brilliant. It’s funny. The cards are postmarked from different states and COUNTRIES!?!? Still a funny, brilliant gag. And just thinking about it… makes the song play in my head. Brilliant joke. Brilliant.

The beginning of January I was at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) speaking at the ZMODO booth. It was amazing. AMAZING!! From a fully created  3D car to 3D pancakes! There were more drones and HUGE TV’s with spectacular picture.  It was a fun Mom/Son trip. Zac and I had a great time!! According to my FitBit, I logged in 30 miles in 3 days.  Blisters and sore feet to prove it. To learn more about CES just type in CES in the search “Whatcha Lookin’ For” widget on the side bar. What an amazing show that is! SO many booths, so MANY people!!

  1. Oh my goodness I have had a headache today but other than that it has been fine. I am getting somethings done which always makes the day better!

  2. My day started off ok {new month excitement}. But then I just received word that my sister in-law’s father passed away from cancer this morning. So sad..

  3. My day has been going pretty well. I worked today and now I’m hanging out watching “The Moaning of Life” with my hubby. It’s on Netflix and we really enjoy watching it.

  4. I stayed home while my husband went to our daughter’s, because I didn’t get any sleep last night! I’m hoping to pass out tonight!
    There’s no happy medium for me! I either sleep too much or not at all ?

  5. Happy February everyone, or, if you’re from Ireland, Happy St. Brigid’s Day, which also marks the 1st day of Spring. Mum’s Welsh, so we start Spring on St. David’s Day, the 1st of March!

  6. What a day. First, the electric bill came in, lol. (Another reason that Winter stinks!) Then, it was just one of those days where it’s one thing after another that needs to be done. Fill out this form, sign that, clean up this mess, lol. At least January is over…so Spring is closer.

  7. Today is Groundhog day! I forget.. is it when he sees his shadow or doesn’t see his shadow that it’s 6 more weeks of winter?

  8. Well today I got up later than I wanted and still have this cough from a cold I had over a week ago. Hopefully get some much needed cleaning and laundry done today

  9. Ok so I thought gardening was over for the week.. wrong back out there again today….but I am giving myself tomorrow off.. have a wonderful day ladies..

  10. I’m actually feeling a weeny bit better today – just as well ‘cos I’ve lots on this weekend & early next week.

  11. It’s Friday so my day is going awesome now that work is over with. I’m ready for a good weekend with my hubby and little furbaby.

  12. Ho, My day was super good. I received a package today I had been waiting on and the weather is good . Thanks for the chance!

  13. Since I gardened all week no work today or tomorrow… baking bread and sweetbread but thats it!! Pasta with pesto for lunch and the pesto is already made so I am home free…..

  14. Today is going well so far. We have just been having a lazy Saturday. Soon it will be time to get into cleaning mode though and get this house in order.

  15. Oh, this has been a blah day. Maybe I’m just feeling a little bored with gray, dreary Winter days & being cold, or maybe all this sneezing is a cold coming on instead of just allergies. I’m not sure, but it’s been a yucky day.

  16. I feel much better today as opposed to yesterday. I am resting up and doing some projects. I am enjoying my Sunday. Hope everyone enjoys the Super Bowl for those who like to watch it! 🙂

  17. So far–so good. Just got over a mild case of the flu. First day I’ve been out for a walk & to get coffee at Starbucks 🙂

  18. My pc is dying! It’s taking forever to get started (like a couple of hours) so you may not hear from me for a while ……………………

  19. Yikes! My brother has the flu, he thinks. Oh, no! That means his kids will probably get it (cause it must be a strain not covered by the flu shot), his wife will get it…then it will spread to our house. No! This must be stopped, lol.

      1. Lol, a ‘tremendou, beautiful’ wall??? They’re expensive & aren’t very effective against people with ladders.

  20. Not the day to ask how its going! I have 3 of the kids very sick and now hubby thinks he getting, great. Maybe it be better tomorrow, but thanks for asking.

  21. It took me 4 hours to get my pc working except I had to use system restore & it’s working from 2016, so I’m having to log into everything, change p/words etc. And YES, I did do a backup (phew!).

    1. I saw yesterday that you were having issues & I thought ‘I bet she has to do a complete system reset.’ Hey, it’s a pain in the butt, but it beats buying a new computer!.

  22. I am sooo tired today. I’m also sad my hubby is going back on night shift tonight. I’m gonna miss him being home with me in the evening.

  23. I think I’m getting a head cold. (Well, I tell myself that, but my brother has the flu…but I refuse to catch the flu!!) So, I’m chugging orange juice & taking extra Vitamin C.

    1. Don’t you get flu jabs? We get them free over here if we have a long-term illness or are over a certain age, vulnerable, live/work in residential homes, hospitals etc.

      1. I’m diabetic so I get a notice from my insurer every year saying “You should get a flu shot!” But they don’t cover it, lol. How dumb is that?? You know it would be cheaper to just pay for shots rather than all the expenses from getting the flu. (Especially for those of us who could wind up with ‘complications.’) Sometimes, I pay for it myself, but this year I just let it slide. I might be about to pay for that! So far, this is acting like a head cold…

  24. It wasn’t a horrible day, but there were some frustrations at work today. I’m looking forward to spending the evening with my puppy dog.

  25. Today was a good day despite being super sore. I started a new workout routine this week, and wheeew!!!!! My arms are killing me!

  26. Ugh. I have a cold. (I will not acknowledge that it could be the flu. It’s going around, my brother has it, my littlest nephew is probably a carrier, lol…but I can’t have it!!!)

  27. For the first time in ages I felt in a good mood today. The sun shone & it was warm on my back as I hung out washing – seratonin levels are on the up!

  28. I’m happy that today was just a half day at the school. I got off early and am so glad for the extra time to spend with my husband. He is off work today.

  29. Finally get to sit down… After doing my chores I decidied to make cookies… no jammy dodgers just chocolate chip and cranberry almond shortbread.. Going to sample some right now….

  30. My arms are sore from the kickboxing I did but I still got my way through this morning’s routine. Probably undid all the good I did with chocolate chip cookies that were baking in the kitchen. It isn’t my fault… I just can’t resist freshly baked goods! lol. 😉

  31. Well, this weird head cold is hanging on…but massive doses of Vitamin C might be keeping it from getting worse. We shall see, I guess. Just to make the day a real bummer, the water meter reader guy knocked on the door to tell us that our meter was showing about double our usual usage & that we had water running right that moment…so he thought we’d want to know. Of course, we had no water running. Looks like there’s a leak somewhere. Well, good news is the water company will adjust the bill after the leak is found.

  32. Today has been spent getting ready for an early morning start to take Mum up to Dublin for a CT scan. Fingers etc. are crossed (v. hard to type!) but probably won’t be able to sleep much tonight 🙁

  33. Another day where I have to call my health insurance company, seems like it’s real easy to waste several hours with them on the phone and get no where.

  34. Here we are at Friday … the usual l work week for most is over for 2 days.. this used to be my happy day.. now all my days are happy days!
    have a great weekend..

  35. I seem to have spent the entire day sitting down. Firstly driving to & from Dublin and, secondly, hanging around in waiting rooms while Mum had various blood tests & scans done to check on how she’s doing after her last Big C op.

  36. This cold seems to have settled in my left eye, lol. It waters constantly. I swear, every time I sneeze, something blows out of my eye!

    1. My grandmother used to say it was all the badness inside you trying to get out. Of course we took it to mean all bad thoughts, little ‘white’ lies and rude words!

  37. Well, the temperature today was great–in the 60s! It was overcast, so not much sun, but at least it wasn’t cold. I’m still fighting a rotten cold that seems to have settled in my left eye, lol. Seriously, when I sneeze, stuff comes out of my eye! This morning I woke up with it literally crusted shut. I had to use a warm washrag to get it open! Geeze, I’m over this: congestion, sneezing, runny eyes. Ugh.

  38. Thanks for asking about my day. I think it went quite well. Within the past week I had money stolen over the internet, was stuck in a snowstorm in my car for 4 1/2 hours, one of my kids got sick and another had a sort of breakdown. Today NOTHING happened. I took care of the kids and vegged out quite a bit. It was nice to just chill. I have a feeling that my luck is changing for the better. I hope your day was awesome too.

  39. Was teacher’s assistant for a Natural Skin Care class at the gardens. Great teacher & fun stuff to learn. Being the TA means I get to attend the class for free.

  40. Sunday glorious Sunday… after I finish cooking today and baking some chocolate cupcakes I plan on reading and listening to some great music….

  41. Since today is Sunday, my Fun Day I am gonna read books on my Kindle and enjoy the day. I also have some projects I need to work on, but I will only do it if I feel like it. LOL. 😛

    1. Oh, I have a rotten head cold. I noticed a lot of us ‘whiners’ are sick! We are just a miserable bunch at the moment, lol.

  42. Had to call an ambulance to take Mom to the ER about midnight last night. She has been having spells of weakness & feeling like she is going to pass out. Last night, she barely made it back to her chair, just sort of fell into it, knocking over her walker, etc. So, after a few doctors not being able to figure it out over the last few weeks, the ER doctor figured it out pretty quick. She’s very anemic. So, she will be there until tomorrow (they want to be sure she can get around.) So, scary but she finally has an answer to what the heck is going on.

    1. Thank heavens someone had a bit of common sense and is getting her sorted out. Very scary for you both though. Give her my best (and you of course) xxx

  43. Today has been so nice and relaxing. I have enjoyed just being lazy. I only wish I didn’t have to go back to work tomorrow, but oh well.

  44. My day was fairly quiet. While the kids were at school, I went to the grocery store. A friend is coming for dinner, and my teen daughter is going to make her yummy chicken enchiladas for us all for dinner! She’s such a good cook!

  45. Have to have another eye surgery but this one is an easy one a laser for more scar tissue removal.. a month from now so I have some time.. Happy Valentines Day to all !!!!

  46. I’m not in the mood to do much of anything. All I want to do is cuddle and eat chocolates. LOL. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! 🙂

  47. I’ve spent the day in bed feeling extremely sorry for myself. You know the ‘nobody loves me’ kind of sorry – kind of pathetic really!

  48. Well, this has just been one of those days. Stressful & long describes my day. I just want to go to bed & hope tomorrow is better.

  49. today I have to finish my lists and inventory for my monthly shopping tomorrow.. have bits and pieces of lists all over the house!! I must confess though I do love making lists….

  50. Still sick & feeling miserable BUT I got a phone call last night to say they’re keeping my place in The King & I open for me, even though I missed the auditions & a couple of practices! See girls, if you’ve got it, flaunt it!

  51. I woke up today with a runny nose and sneezing non-stop. I am wondering if I caught something at the doctor’s office on Monday. 🙁

  52. Well, after a week of being decimated by colds, flu, etc., things seem to be getting better. Mom was hospitalized for 2 days due to bronchitis, but she was pumped full of meds & is better, lol. My cold is better, just coughing it up, lol. My brother feels wiped out, but the flu is gone. Oh…my oldest nephew’s class all brought home papers from school saying their was a student in his class with head lice. NO!!!!! Lol, his head check was clean, though, so I’m thinking he needs to get his Summer buzz cut early & be sure he doesn’t get it.

  53. Off shopping today… happy yes!! I love to just walk and look.. there are some things you just cannot put into the budget…..But a new printer all in one is on the list for today and groceries….

  54. My day went really well as we ate icecream and watched movies all afternoon. Salted Caramel icecream is now my all time fave 🙂

  55. Had a good time yesterday shopping.. today I have to put everything away.. lazy yesterday evening yes! only did the frig/freezer stuff…

  56. Good day today. Feeling better. Got back to my kickboxing and I was able to do it better. Having a lot of ab trouble.. some of the moves are just so hard for me. But I am gonna keep trying!

  57. Well not sleeping, sick grandkids visiting. I knew it was a matter of time that I would get ill. Unfortunately I was right! I am now on antibiotics – getting chills and coughing! Feeling miserable!

  58. Laundry going and I have a coconut pound cake in the oven….hubby wants chili for lunch so thats settled.. my day is moving along very well…

  59. Just taking it easy today coz I am still recuperating from the flu. Woke up late, had breakfast and now catching up on e-mail.

  60. I’ve had to learn the hard way that when I’m feeling lousy, fighting the inevitable only makes it worse, even if that means going to bed at lunchtime! At last I’m on the mend but taking it easy as I’ve a busy week of singing ahead of me.

  61. This has just been a lazy Saturday. Nothing much happened. Honestly, the highlight was Mom got a haircut & a perm, lol.

  62. Sitting here wondering how in hell I got to be so lucky.. a great hubby,, wonderful daughter.. and retirement suits me to a T……Grateful thats all I can say…

  63. Feeling a wee bit better and it’s stopped raining so I caught up on some laundry, popped a casserole in the oven & took some beautiful red roses up to Dad’s grave.

  64. Thanks for asking how our days are. Very nice of you to ask. Just had septum and voicebox surgeries, so painful but looking so forward to no more headaches and sinus infections! Yay!

  65. I woke up at 4am and couldn’t stop sneezing. Whatever I caught (or maybe it’s allergies??) is really taking toll on me…

  66. At last I made it to a King & I rehearsal – I’ve so much catching up to do and my voice isn’t 100% yet so I’ll have to take it easy.

  67. Today has been a good day. Now I am relaxing on the couch with my puppy and watching the new show, Big Little Lies. Loving it so far.

  68. This has been one of those days. A friend (also an in-law) who lost her husband to cancer just months ago –he was just in his mid 50s– lost her home to fire today. Honestly, I just don’t know what to think when this kind of thing happens. What do you even say to someone?

  69. Today is my husbands birthday.. have everything in place.. fav meal beef stroganoff wine and his birthday cake a strawberry shortcake…..ready to celebrate soon….

  70. It was a good day. Our internet service was down for a little while and that drove me crazy but it’s up and running now! 🙂

  71. Just got back from another rehearsal and I think I’ll head to bed early. Storm Doris is due to hit Ireland & the UK tonight/tomorrow!

  72. Well, the good thing about this Winter is that it seems to be finishing up really mildly. We are going to hit 75 degrees Friday. Crazy. It’s supposed to drop back to the 50s this weekend, but just a few years ago out temps were in the sub-zero range, so, I’ll take this!

  73. My day is going pretty well so far! I am just starting my morning off and going to have to go to work in a few minutes. We will see how I feel after work 😉 Hope your day is going well!

  74. Storm Doris dumped up to 12 inches of snow in northern England, Wales & Scotland last night with more to follow. In Ireland we got away with rain & gale force winds that brought down power lines etc. but at least no-one was hurt.

  75. I was very happy to see that the weather is going to be mild today and will break records for the high tomorrow. I’ll get outdoors and enjoy.

  76. My day is going ok. All roads in and out of town are closed due to our winter storm. That’s ok. After work I can go home, sit by the woodstove and read.

  77. Good day so far! I managed to connect with someone that can hopefully help me wrap up some lingering details on a very long running project!

  78. It’s been a good day. I started out tired but managed to wake up once work started. That went well and then I headed home. The weather is in the high 60’s today so I went for a run outside. Ran 4 miles. It felt great. Gonna shower off and get ready for a date night with my husband to end the day on a high note.

  79. I hurt my thumb yesterday. I have no idea how I did it. It hurts to move it too much. Man, something is always happening to me.. I swear…. LOL. 😉

  80. Well, this has been a pretty decent day. I really didn’t have much to do (just some babysitting for my nephews when they got out of school.) But it has been really nice weather lately–in the high 60s/low 70s. So…overall, how can you not be good with that?

  81. I’m attempting to get my youngest daughter up for school. That’s always a battle. My day should be good after that. 🙂

  82. Doing the weekly shop later today before the rain starts then I’ll take Mum to church so she can get the organ ready for what”s going to be a huge funeral on Sunday.

  83. Recovering from each leg having sclerotherapy for the last two days. I’m a little swollen, tired and sore but other than that I feel great.

  84. Today is my mother’s 83rd birthday. I hope she got the birthday card that I mailed to her. It would have been better if I had been able to make the long drive to another state see her.

  85. TGIF!!!! I have had a bit of a cold, so I am looking forward to resting up, watching movies and reading good books this weekend.

  86. Happy Carnival Mardi Gras weekend to all… we are starting our celebrations today with a BBQ…..any excuse to party right??

  87. Spent the morning in church with Mum & her choir rehearsing for a funeral tomorrow now settling down for the afternoon with the papers & a couple of rugby matches on telly! CYMRY AM BITH (Wales for ever)!!!

  88. My day is going good. I had a nice breakfast with my husband this morning and played with my puppy. Then my sister came over to hang out for a while.

  89. I woke up early and was able to catch up on my e-mails. It is raining outside and it is nice to just stay indoors with the family.

  90. I am having a fun day preparing dishes for a dinner I’m having for my children and their spouses-everyone’s birthday is in February!

  91. Most of today has been spent hanging out with my 2 nephews (while their parents are off helping paint a temporary home for their Grandma, who lost her home to fire this week.) So, today has been cartoons, kids’ movies & weird You Tube videos, lol.

  92. Today is my usual Sunday. I have a project I am working on and then I am gonna read my book. I am a bit behind with my reading… I gotta catch up! 😀

  93. Just back from a huge funeral in the village. One of the local farmers opened his yard so people could park as did the Church of Ireland (2 churches & a pub surrounded by fields just about sums the village up!). Mum played the organ, I sang and there were traditional fiddlers, harpists etc as well. All while another storm was threatening to blow the windows in!

  94. The Merry Monarch has rung the bell to open Carnival Jouvert morning… I don’t participate anymore but I have great memories of chipping down the road with a steelband in the streets of Port of Spain ….many years ago….

  95. It’s a cold rainy Monday right now so I am not loving today. HOWEVER I am going to be positive and hope it gets better! ♥

  96. Doing okay, my son had school today, he only goes three days a week and my husband started first shift today so we are having a big transition in our household

  97. I was looking forward to getting some chores done but had to scrap all plans as my sister’s car wouldn’t start & my niece had to get to a hospital appointment in Dublin. Got home, showered & out again for rehearsal till 10pm. The whole day’s gone by and I’ve got nothing to show for it!

  98. Today was ok. I really struggled through my workout though. Some days seem to be harder than others… And I lost 1 pound so far. Bleh….

  99. It’s always a good day when I can get cottage cheese for a dime! My Kroger affiliate seriously marks down dairy close to the expiration day!

  100. Carnival Tuesday!! Parade of the bands, costumes music… yes I have my lunch cooking and as soon as my husband comes from the garden a nice afternoon in the gallery with a cocktail.. what could be better than that!!

  101. Today’s Shrove Tuesday or PANCAKE DAY!!! I’ll be making some later tonight when I get back from choir practice and organising a special treat for Mum for tomorrow, St. David’s Day, the Patron Saint of Wales.

  102. My day is going great so far. I hope everyone’s day is going well. We’re enjoying having our young granddaughters with us today.

  103. Had a great outreach program for DBG with the Alzheimer’s group. Had 24 people and we passed around some plants and then they made seed art.

  104. I got to speak to my best friend today for hours. She has been busy caring for an elderly aunt and had been out of town for a month. then I worked out and so far on my diet I’ve lost 2 lbs this week.

  105. Well, my day went fairly well. I did a little shopping with 90% off items. That is always fun. Then my son bought dinner for me so I didn’t have to cook. Spent some time on the computer and just relaxed. All in all it was a good day. Thanks for asking. 🙂

  106. My day was filled with pain today, our weather change is so drastic that my arthritis is killing me. Other than that, I am awesome! How was your day???

  107. It wasn’t the best of days, but that just means that tomorrow will be even better. I’m still a lucky girl – I have the best family and friends and a great job. So I’ll take a bleh day every now and then.
