What's Up Wednesday

Linking up with What's Up Wednesday.............

What we're eating this week.... this past week we've had BLT's a couple of times and something just as easy the other days.  No joke, I'm so bad about cooking these days.  I enjoy fall and winter cooking far more than spring and summer.  

What I'm reminiscing about.....I generally go almost every afternoon to see my 88 year old Daddy at the assisted living facility where he lives.  Our conversations often turn to days gone by and it's such fun to reminisce with him and it's generally about the various churches he pastored during his 50+ year in the ministry.

What we've been up to.....In recent days we have trimmed up all the Crepe Myrtles in our landscape. They had all gotten top heavy.  Hubby trimmed and I picked up the trimmings. ~such a good wife~ We went to see Momma Mia, Here We Go Again and then visited with dear friends that we had not seen in a while.  We're always up to something, sometimes nothing all that special, sometimes very special, it all balances out to what we think is a fun life. 

What I'm the next couple of months it will be time for me to begin my yearly checkups with various Drs.  And, the thing is, I'm as healthy as a horse at this time but I go to about 5 or 6 Drs. for yearly checkups.  I suppose on the "up" side is that these check ups will keep me healthy as a horse.  I just do not like all the time that it takes.  Ugh!

What I'm working on........just the everyday stuff right now, laundry, changing the linens, dusting, and always straightening or organizing something. ~chuckle~

What I'm excited about.......going to Pawhuska, Oklahoma next Tuesday with my daughter to do "all things Pioneer Women."  Bridget and her family only live a couple of hours from Pawhuska so Hubby and I will head to their house on Sunday.  

What I'm watching/reading....I am currently finishing up season 1 of The Crown.  I did not watch it when it was on TV so I'm now watching it on Netflix and will be ready for season 3 when it starts after the first of the year.  I had heard so many rave reviews and I have not been disappointed yet.

What I'm listening to.....I listen to various types of music everyday.  I usually play some type of easy listening instrumental but occasionally I'll play contemporary christian or 50's and 60's music. As I said, I enjoy various types of music.

What I'm wearing......c-o-o-l clothing, lots of shorts and tops at this time.  It is soooo hot here in NE Louisiana with humidity out the "wazoo."  I don't wear sleeveless tops and most of my tops are three quarter sleeves, and they are not that cool but I just think, at this stage in my life, I look a whole lot better with a sleeve.  Yep, that's the truth!

What I'm doing this weekend......celebrating MY birthday!!! More on that in a minute.

What I'm looking forward to next month.....Well, school will start for our DIL but it doesn't start for our oldest granddaughter for several days later.  So, she will stay the day with me and we'll make some memories together.  She will soon be 9 years old so time with her CiCi will not always be as exciting as it is now.

What else is new......My 66th birthday is this next Sunday, the 29th.  Some of our running buddies put together a fun dinner out for this Friday evening and then we'll head to Ok. on my birthday.  The trip to Pawhuska was planned to celebrate my birthday and Bridget and I are so excited.  We don't have much one on one time anymore so we're especially looking forward to that.  Happy Birthday to ME!
And, I leave you with this................

  11. Have a wonderful birthday! I celebrated 40 this month and I've pretty much celebrated all month and it's been grand!

    I've been to the Mercantile and it's beautiful and fun to browse! I'm about three hours away. I expected it to be busy, but I really was amazed at the lines and long wait to eat. We didn't eat at the restaurant, but bought goodies from the bakery! Yum!

    Have so much fun with your daughter!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
