Friday feelings


 TGIF 


Glad the weekend in nearly here. Steve out with a cold. Receptionist out with a cold so I have to do the front desk.


 But getting through the day, making the most of it.

 


 No plans for the weekend other than I must bead. I haven't for the past, oh, three days. Ugh. Projects need doing.

 


 Nothing on TV tonight. We'll have pizza, I'm thinking. Something easy.

 


 That's about it then.

 

 

Have a good weekend

 


Much love,

Bah (but with grace)


 Thursday. I didn't get my afternoon off yesterday. Events were conspiring. 

 


 Ah well, it was only a strong maybe that it would happen. Maybe next week. The week after that, Candy is off all week so no chance then.

 


Nothing on tonight on TV. I'd like to bead a little and then read a little. Steve came to work but he should go back home. His cold is lingering. 

 


I don't know what's for dinner. It might be easier to pick something up and be done with it. I'm glad tomorrow is Friday and then it's the weekend. That's all I've got.

 


Have a good day

 


Much love,

My spirit animal


Wednesday.  


 It's just been a weird energy day. I can't explain. Things are just going cattywompus in dealing with people today.



 Steve still stayed home with the cold. Service manager had a couple appointments with his cellulitis in the morning. Our commercial crew decided to have a "precious" day and can't seem to do a) accomplish anything, b) accomplish anything without calling in five times, c) do anything efficiently, d) decided they're attached at the hip when just one person could accomplish the something.

 


 Yeah, I'm getting there. I'm still going to take the afternoon off to go to the bead shop. (really it's only missing 3 hours of work).

 


 Steve would normally have the gun range tonight. I don't think he's going but ya never know. I don't have anything on TV. I didn't bead tonight but maybe momentum will carry me through and I may continue with that this evening or I may just read.

 Either way, I'm keeping a positive attitude. Mostly.

 

 Have a good day


 Much love,

Some days are more incognito than others


 Tuesday

 Steve is home with the cold I'm just about over. But you know how Man Colds are SO MUCH worse. 

 


 Tonight I have the 4th episode of The Chosen premiere to watch!

 


 Afterward, I'll maybe do some beading.


 Have a good day

 


Much love,

Weekend dog meets Monday cat

 

Monday

 


Had a nice quiet weekend. I beaded, I read, and I napped a couple times. The cold appears to be leaving. 

 

Sometimes when I have a cold, I get the feeling not only for comfort food but also comfort reading. A little while ago I reread the Tobey books by Rosamond duJardin. This weekend I reread most of the Penny and Pam books.

 DOUBLE DATE (1952)

 

Quiet, sensitive Penny Howard has always tried to be as much like her vivacious twin Pam as Pam wished- wearing the same clothes, and letting Pam arrange dates and choose their activities. But as the girls start their senior year at a new high school, in a new town, Penny resolves to no longer be a carbon copy of Pam.. To her surprise, she finds herself quietly cheered on by their mother, and their grandmother, and most happily for Penny, by Mike Bradley, the boy she was afraid Pam had chosen for herself.

DOUBLE FEATURE (1953)

 

Pam and Penny's grandmother is marrying Lucius and now they must agree on which college to attend. Pam must also decide what to do about Randy's growing feelings for her. The twins choose Harwood, where Mike is also going and Pam decides to break things off with Randy who is heading east to go to school. At Harwood, Pam meets Cade, who plays the same game of hard-to-get that Pam is used to playing herself. But she also meets Jeff, who doesn't really belong to her crowd, but attracts her nonetheless. At the end, she must decide who is more important to her and also changes her ways as she learns more about what it is like to grow up and change.

SHOWBOAT SUMMER (1955)
 

A summer vacation aboard the Harwood College Showboat was an exciting prospect for Pam and Penny, the twins of Double Feature. To Penny, it meant being with Mike who had a job on the tugboat that pushed the old Regina from town to town along the Ohio River. To Pam it meant a chance to act, and perhaps a leading role in one of the gala showboat performances.

 And one more to go:

 DOUBLE WEDDING (1959)


Graduation seems far away to Pam and Penny, as they start their second year of college, especially since their marriages are postponed until their fiances' graduations. But college days are crowded days and many things happen to shorten the waiting. Then sooner than Pam and Penny ever dreamed possible, it's commencement time... will a double wedding follow?

And I read some of the Jordan. 

Street Outlaws on TV tonight. I've got to do more beading for a while. I don't know what's for dinner yet.

 


Have a good day

TGIF


 Friday. Well, the cold got me.

 


 Eh, it's just a cold but it's inconvenient. Bah.

 


 Luckily there's no bead class tomorrow. I'm just going to bead, read, sleep, and drown the cold this weekend.

 


You know, the usual. 

 


 Have a good day

 


Much love,

Musta sprung a leak


 Thursday.

 The cold is being resistant to my measures to destroy it.

 


 Our Service Manager has it. I think one of techs had it recently, missing a day. Bah.

 


So I'm not sure what's for dinner but I'm only going to read and go to bed as early as possible. 

 


 Have a good day


 Much love,
