Not just a one day event, I'm blogging every day about what I'm thankful for

Missing You

I have made some WP friends. But then when they leave or aren’t around as much, I get sad. That is the problem with online friends. So, if you aren’t been around much lately, know YOU ARE MISSED!!!! Yes, YOU!!!!!

Thanksgiving Project – Follow Me

It is still dreary here. The rain finally stopped for awhile. But this is what I have to look forward to.

I’m thinking I should go ahead a work the holiday and take Friday off. I’m just sick of the rain. It poured all night and much of the morning and afternoon. Now it is just windy. I started to sit outside and read, but the wind chased me indoors where I’m now laying on the couch wearing sweats. Did I mention it is also ten degrees cooler than average. June 30 and it was only 65 degrees at 2 pm. Ugh.

But today I have something to be thankful for (it sure isn’t the weather). I have over 100 followers on WordPress! How is it that so many people care about what I have to say???? But now I feel pressure to deliver a truly Thanksgiving blog.

As I was reminded by Bradley and Ionia yesterday, I have made friends here. I do really enjoy all of my interactions with all of you. Thank you for your friendships. I promise I will find those funny little things to be thankful for by tomorrow.

But today, I’m thankful for all of you.

Thanksgiving Project – Out of Order

I should be happy. I’ve had an entire day to do nothing. I cleaned up a couple of messes, did some laundry, visited my dad. All at my leisure. But I didn’t get any reading done today.

But I’m just really down today. I’m in a fowl mood. The weather is still cloudy and stormy. I’m really tired of it. First we had the never ending winter. Then summer finally arrived and we just haven’t had good weather. Rain every day for awhile now and the forecast is 50% chance daily through at least Wednesday. My weekends have not been good for soaking up some sunshine.

I’m sure there is something today to be thankful for…but right now I’m just not feeling it.

Off topic

I know this is my own personal local news. But it sickened me. I seriously want to vomit. Who does this? Why? Hug your children, tell them you love them…NOW!!

Thanksgiving Project – It’s the Weekend, Baby!

I’ve not been this excited for the weekend in awhile. I have zero plans. I do have a date with my pillow though and hope I it will be a long date, oft repeated.

I’ve really been working a lot…and I did bring work home. But at least I can work on it at my leisure…in the sun on my deck!

Honestly, a perfect weekend for me this weekend would be one where I don’t get dressed and don’t talk to anyone. Seriously. Not very realistic though. But I do intend to get some sun, read a bunch, take some naps. Oh, and get that report done by the end of the month that I’ve been putting off. (Hey, don’t judge me, I have two days left!)

Today I am thankful for a weekend of nothing planned. Ahhhhhh

Thanksgiving Project – Early to Bed

For a night owl, going to bed at 9:30 is unheard of. But I’m going to give it a try.

Lets face it, the stress at work coupled with a night of really bad sleep, makes me very tired.

I had the evening all to myself. I didn’t want to go anywhere, but didn’t want to stay home alone. My cruse cabin mate came over and we shared a bottle of wine.

So two nights with 4-5 hours of sleep each + incredible work stress + wine = sleepy Pamela.

I’m thankful for the company tonight. I’m thankful for the wine. And I hope I’m going to be thankful for the sleep.

HOW TO GROW A SQUIRREL…

For my squirrel loving friends…or those recruiting an army of squirrels. You’ve been doing it wrong, you just need to plant them. Hahahaha

A WINDOW INTO THE WOODS

APPARENTLY TO GROW A SQUIRREL, YOU PUT PEANUTS DOWN IN THE BOTTOM OF A FLOWER POT….

YOU CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE FROM THE FIRST IMAGE…ALREADY THE TAIL HAS BEGUN TO GET LONGER…

Squirrel in pot 1

NOW THE TAIL HAS GROWN EVEN TALLER…PLENTY OF SUNSHINE SEEMS TO BE HELPFUL…

BY SOME MIRACLE OF NATURE, THE ENTIRE LOOK OF YOUR SQUIRREL PLANT  WILL CHANGE AND YOU WILL HAVE GROWN A SQUIRREL!

 

Squirrel 6

SO APPARENTLY…EVERY TIME  THAT YOU FEED THE CHIPMUNKS AND SQUIRRELS PEANUTS AND THEY RUN AWAY WITH THEM AND BURY THEM…THEY ARE ACTUALLY PLANTING SQUIRRELS.  NO WONDER THERE ARE SO MANY SQUIRRELS AROUND…I WONDER IF NINJA SQUIRRELS ARE GROWN WITH SALTED PEANUTS?  I ONLY PUT OUT ROASTED, NO SALT PEANUTS.
