Sunday Reflections

Outside…
It’s a sunny and beautiful day, 78°, and the sky is pale blue with  a few fluffy white clouds

Thankful…
For the Peanuts Charlie Brown Christmas Tree my son Anthony bought me yesterday. It even plays the Linus & Lucy song. We can’t have a big tree this year because we have a kitten who would love it a little too much, and so he surprised me with this tree. Jaspurr tried messing with it while I was putting it together, but hasn’t since I set it on a small table. I’ve watched A Charlie Brown Christmas just about every year since I was 8. I love my tree!

Reading…
Tomorrow I’ll be starting Reading People: How Seeing The World Through The Lens Of Personality Changes Everything by Anne Bogel

Listening To…
Bare Bones: I’m Not Lonely If You’re Reading This Book by Bobby Bones

Watching…
My son and daughter in law talked me into trying This Is Us, so I did. Wow! This show is amazing! I’ve got 4 more episodes to go and I’ll have caught up on seasons 1 &  2.

Fitness…
I’m going to do the POPSUGAR 21-Day Arm-Sculpting Challenge again this month

In The Kitchen…
I made spaghetti and cheesy garlic bread so we’ve had that the last 2 nights. Tonight I’ll probably make Salisbury steaks and baked potatoes

Today’s To-Do List…
Try to finish This Is Us and Jonathan Livingston Seagull: The Complete Edition by Richard Bach

One of my favorite things:
My Black & Decker Lids Off, which I’ve had for quite a few years. I have trouble with my hands and it’s hard to open jars. This is perfect for me and now I don’t have to ask someone to help me open lids. I love it!

A website I’d like to share:
Lifehacker

Pin It & Do It…
I found a Chicken & Waffles Casserole and really want to try it soon

A Favorite Bible Verse…
1 Corinthians 12:7-11

7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

  1. I love This Is Us! It’s one of my favorite shows. I’m so glad you are enjoying it.

  2. I’m glad you are jumping on the This Is Us bandwagon. The first season was amazing. I’m not finding this second season to be nearly as good. Not sure why! I wonder if they have changed writers. Today is the beginning of Advent! I am studying along with a group online. Love your Bible selections today! Your little tree is so cute. And I love Bobby Bones!!

    • I think the second season is as good as the first, although in the first season you learn how all the characters are connected and that added an element of surprise to it for me.

      I’d love to join an online Bible study. I guess I should search for one that interests me.

      I had never heard of Bobby Bones (that I can remember) until I saw this book a while back. I think I’ll like it.

      Have a great week Paula!

  3. Beautiful photo, very pretty and colourful.
    Have a wonderful beginning to the new week.

  4. I’ve always loved the Charlie Brown Christmas special. I’ve never seen a Lids Off but may have to get my mom one for Christmas.

  5. The Charlie Brown special is one of the greatest. I may need a Lids Off too!

  6. This is us sounds like a show I’d enjoy watching as well! Beautiful photo, Vicki! I am going to check out Lifehacker.

  7. My coworker has a Charlie Brown tree and I can’t tell you how many people come by to tell her how sad her tree looks. They aren’t familiar with Charlie Brown!

    • Yeah, if you aren’t familiar with Charlie Brown the idea would be lost on you. But…you mean there are people out there who haven’t seen Charlie Brown Christmas?

  8. Great photo. I love it.
