Happy Thursday, friends.
Thursday always feels like a wild card day to me. It's one of the two days each week when my daughter doesn't go to preschool, and it's also different from most of the other days because I don't have a set schedule to follow. It's almost a free day! As I was thinking about the things I need/want to get done today, I came up with this list of yeas and nays—and I learned that I can always find a lot of good if I take the time to look for it: ☺
♥ Project Runway All-Stars is on tonight. Yea!
♥ I'm way behind on my NaNoWriMo project, but I'm still plodding along. Yea!
♥ I have to write the store list for our weekly grocery shopping trip. Nay.
♥ My daughter and I are going to the library today. Yea!
♥ Yesterday's weather was beautiful, so I took the kids outside to play after school. Today, however, it's gray and rainy—not an outdoor playday at all. Nay.
♥ On the other hand, back home they already have snow, so I guess a little rain is just fine—and the leaves are still pretty. Yea!
♥ I'm almost finished with the book I'm reading, so soon I'll be able to move on to one I've been waiting to read for a while, Ted Kooser's Sure Signs: New and Selected Poems. Yea!
|We can find them if we look: rainbows and silver linings!|
♥ Since I cooked so much this week and have tons of leftovers, I don't have to make dinner tonight. Yea!
♥ Mount Laundry is waiting for me downstairs. Nay.
♥ Today is a new day to get things right. Yea!
How about you? What are your Thursday yeas and nays?
Wishing you all a wonderful day. ☺
Leftovers are awesome. I prefer them to freshly cooked most of the time! And you've made me want to take a trip to my local library today :)ReplyDelete
I agree about the leftovers. About the library: you should go!Delete
I'm reading two good books right now so that alone makes me happy. I like the regular season of Project Runway - I miss Tim Gunn! And my NaNo project is coming along, slowly but surely, like a tortoise. :)ReplyDelete
Enjoy your day!
Oh, I agree. The regular season is much better, largely because of Tim Gunn! I'm glad your NaNo project is going well. ☺Delete
Na had to get a bakeout ready at work, yards & yards of heater cable to connect. Yay I off home soonReplyDelete
I hope you're home now and enjoying the rest of your Thursday!Delete
NAY - went to the grocery store.ReplyDelete
YAY - those groceries are for our weekend at the lake and we're heading there in the morning. Double YAY
Your "yea" is wonderful! It makes the "nay" worth it, I'm sure. Have a great time. ☺Delete
PS -- I'm a Project Runway/PR All Stars fan too. I usually like Melissa but she's struggling! NAYReplyDelete
I know! She's always been one of my favorites too, but I haven't been too impressed with anything she's made so far.Delete
Yeah I'm definitely behind on NaNo but I'm trudging along :PReplyDelete
As for my big yay: I only have Tuesday/Thursday classes so after today I'm free until Tuesday!!
Nay: Mount Laundry and Mount SO MANY FINALS TO STUDY FOR are currently lurking in my apartment.
That's a great yea! Enjoy your mini-vacation! Good luck with those nays. :)Delete
Nice pictures and very spectacular autumn lightsReplyDelete
Thanks, Leovi. :)Delete
You have to like leftovers! Enjoy your day of no cooking!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I plan on it. ☺Delete
The biggest yea is that it was my Friday because I'm taking a vacation day tomorrow. :-) The biggest nay is that I'm behind on my NaNoWriMo project and will be even more behind due to our plans this weekend. Good luck with yours! :-)ReplyDelete
Congrats on your early weekend! As far as NaNo goes, at least we're not alone in being behind. Good luck with yours too! ☺Delete
I like your Yeas and Nays, Dana, too cute! My nay would have been the writing out of the shopping list too (that also goes along with planning the meals for the next week). I fell behind getting it done today like I usually do so I'll do it tomorrow morning. My yea would be it was 85 degrees here today!ReplyDelete
85 degres sounds wonderful today! It was hailing here a minute ago...Delete
Well, I didn't get to my store list/meal planning yesterday, so guess what I'm doing today. Ugh.
Nice picture of the rainbow!ReplyDelete
I love to play cards! I think your day was perfect, wasn`t it? And the photo of the tree is beautiful. In Brazil summer is starting...ReplyDelete
Rub it in, Brazil.Delete
Camila, yes, it did turn out to be a nice day. I hope your day was too. ☺Delete
When I was younger, we used to call Thursday "Honorary Friday." We'd go out clubbing until 2 am, only to have to get up a few hours later to go to work.ReplyDelete
I don't do that anymore.
I don't even do that when I can sleep in the next day.
My daughter calls them "Thirsty Thursdays."
She'll eventually learn.
And be asleep by nine on Fridays.
I'll probably be dead by then, though.
At least I'll be getting some sleep.
LOL We also called them "Thirsty Thursdays" when I was in college. And yes, I agree: she'll learn. :)Delete
Hope you get some sleep, Al.
Mount Laundry. Love that. :-) Yeah, every day has its yeas and nayes but it's nice to have a sense of humor about them where you can. :)ReplyDelete
Exactly. ☺ I hope you have a great weekend.Delete
