Let’s Salute the Week (and the New Year)

This promises to be a very busy week!  I am so happy that it is 2017.  I realized that there was a 6 in 2016, go figure.  I spent the whole year without realizing that and it probably is because I spent so much time inside my head thinking negative thoughts.  
This year I am going to spend every day battling negativity by reading the “Battlefield of the Mind” by Joyce Meyer. In addition, I have the tapes, Action Plan and now I am reviewing her newest editing of the Bible “The Battlefield of the Mind Study Bible”.  I am finding it very helpful with my thought process.
As bad as 2016, there are several things I am grateful for:

  1. My church is a praying church and we have some great prayer warriors.
  2. My husband  is a good man.
  3. My parents love and care about me.
  4. There are several people on my Facebook who I have known personally for a very long time.  It is great to go into private messaging when we can’t get together.
  5. God allows U – turns.
  6. My son and daughter communicate with us, their parents, regularly.
  7. People are generally good, even when they are accusing me of something that I am not or have not down. I learned this year that God will take care of them when I LEAVE it with him.  It was a hard lesson to learn. (I am not talking about revenge on my part).
  8. Technology is my friend, even when it it doesn’t work the way I want it to.
  9. The 12 days of Christmas by Julie Hedlund.  I really thought about this year and I didn’t want really think I had anything to be grateful for (because I screwed up in just about area of my life), but I found when I went to church today and was embraced by my church family.
  10. I will constantly tell myself and remind myself of the lessons I have learned this year

  This year I will be keeping track of my gratitude in this jar.

The past 8 days I have been working on my reflections for this past year, 2016.  Tomorrow I will list some of the things I want to achieve this year.  Things I know I can because my main priority is to be financially solvent by the end of 2017.

Everyone lets make this a great new year and wonderful, positive time.

My word for this year is diligent.  

Let’s Salute the Week!!


It is officially December! 

Of course it has been December for 11 days, but I thought I would officially welcome it !    Last week ended with me going home from work with a cold and touch of the flu.  As a result, Friday and Saturday were spent on the couch.  My only job was to keep the fire going.  I didn’t have to walk the dog and my husband went out and bought my medicine for me.  The “cold” was a bronchial cold which requira-cozy.jpged an inhaler, Tylenol, and  congestion cough medicine relief.  Now I am on the mend!

While I was on the couch and in between tending the fire, I read, A LOT!!!!.

A Taste for Murder by Burl Barer

Murder Between the Lines by Radha Vassalread-all-the-books.jpg

Purr M for Murder: A Cat Rescue Mystery by T.C. LoTempio

Killer Cocktail by Tracy Kiely

A Perfect for Manhattan Murder by Tracy Kiely

The Final Vow by Amanda Flower

For Whom the Bread Rolls by Sarah Fox

I will be reviewing the books on the blog this week.  I will be combining some of the books because I want to do a couple of author series because I really enjoyed the books I read this weekend. 

Mystery Thriller Week

IN addition, between tending the fire, reading, taking medicine and naps (which were interrupted by fits of coughing) I kept up with social media and noticed that there wasn’t  a Pinterest Board for Mystery Thriller Week, so  drum-roll

I was asked to develop a Pinterest board for Mystery Thriller Week, which I am. . . . in the process of doing.

Let’s Salute the Week!!  It will be a great week!!
