Where Did The Past Week Go?

I was doing such a good job of blogging and then... BOOM! Done!

I can't even remember what has happened over the past week. There was snow... that was bizarre... I'm posting pictures that I snagged off of Facebook last week when it snowed. Photo credit to Julie Pearce of Unicor.n Photography. I think I live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth and the snow just made it more beautiful. I believe all of the attached photos were taken here in White County.

and I've had two naps because my mom and Oscar (the vocal doxie) are down visiting Cody and Marquee and helping with Ollie... I couldn't go because I had two doctor visits scheduled this week for myself and one that I need to drive Pop to (eye doctor, can't drive afterwards)... so the naps were great but I'm bummed that I couldn't be the one to go visit Ollie...

I had blood work on Monday and a doctor visit today. All my lab stuff was improved, so that was good. Still lots of issues that require monitoring so I go back in three months. For so many things it's just a matter of ... "yeah... that's pretty much what we expect to happen..." see you next time. Not that I expect medical miracles or anything but sometimes it all seems so pointless/redundant.

I got a prescription for the stair lift which keeps us from having to pay sales tax on it. Good to not have to pay the sales tax. Sucks to need it.

While leaving the doctor today I bumped into my brother who was the next appointment after me. Small town and all that.

I took Austin to get his hair cut yesterday - couldn't get in so he'll go back next week. Then we all went to Walmart. Cosette in the toy department is HILARIOUS! All stuffed animals and dolls are "bobos" just like Cousin Ollie is "bobo". I handed her a little baby doll and she immediately kissed it on it's little mouth. She's such a little mother! My boys weren't like that.

After Walmart we went to the Vape Shop. Mixed feelings on that. Austin sees it as a way to cut back on smoking. I see it as a great big unknown risk. Visiting the vape shop takes for-blooming-ever so I was quite the grumpy mum by the time he was finished. I spent a little time in the thrift store beside the vape shop and picked up a few little items for Cosy and Ollie.

Cosette is also really enjoying books. We're sticking with the board books because she can sometimes be a little overly enthusiastic about turning pages. I bought a little Frozen board book and she laughs at the page where Elsa freezes everything. She's got a little mischief in her, that girl. Laughs at that page every time. And then at the back of the book she says, "Bobo"... because we have the Elsa and Anna "bobos" that she plays with. She is also still really loving her little pocketbook. She is a girly girl!

What else can I tell you? Oh, Downton Abbey. I have recorded this last season of episodes but haven't watched any. I wanted to wait until I had the full final season to binge watch. I watched half of the season on Monday and finished it yesterday. I had seen complaints that the story lines didn't wrap up but I felt like it was all hemmed up neatly. Happily ever after and all that.

Now I'm binge-watching Switched At Birth. I wasn't sure that I would like it but Tasha encouraged me to keep going and I'm glad I did. It's no Downton Abbey but it's interesting. I'm definitely getting my money's worth out of my Netflix membership.

I've taken my efforts to learn Italian a step further in the past week. I have been doing the Duolingo app every morning for the past two months straight! I fix a cup of coffee and do all the reviews and the try to go through a few new sections every day while I drink my coffee. I've been doing good but I thought it would be better for me to keep a list of phrases and words to practice on beyond just the app. I've started doing a little review in the afternoon or evening. While I'm using the app if I come across a word I've never seen before or don't remember, I list it to review later. Writing also helps me commit it to memory. I mean, honestly, I will probably never have a need to use any other language, especially Italian, but just like with sewing it gives me a feeling of being productive and ... well, it gives me a reason to get up in the morning. Duolingo is free, by the way, and they aren't paying me to say this but I find it a really user friendly way to learn a new language.

So we went from snow to 70 degrees in a week... Spring time in Georgia... Hope you're all doing well! Thanks for stopping by! Love and hugs, y'all!
