Ever Have One of Those Days?

Yesterday was that kind of day for me.

I woke up feeling good.

I had a mental list of things I wanted to do.

Some necessary things like laundry, balancing the check book, paying a few bills and writing a thank you note.

And some fun, relaxing things like finish crocheting my latest scarf (before another cold snap hits this weekend), deciding my next crochet project, begin sewing some quilt pieces, and whatever else hits me.

Instead, I did two loads of laundry, wrote a blog post and started balancing the check book.

That's when it all went down hill.

The check book would not balance.

All morning I spent trying to figure out the problem.

It's in our favor, but still...

I was a bank teller, I should be able to figure this out.

Nope.

I stopped long enough to go have some lunch with my sister-in-law.

I wanted the soup of the day and a baked potato.

Nope.  No baked potatoes until after 4:00.

At least the soup was good.

After lunch, I checked my figures again in the check book but found nothing amiss.

I finally put it away but by then I was frustrated.

And, it seemed, whatever else I touched turned into a problem.

So, I decided to touch nothing except the current book I am reading.

Which, happens to be a book by Beverly Lewis, a well-known author of Amish fiction.

That's where I needed to be for the rest of the afternoon.

Caught up in the Amish lifestyle.  Ah.

I did manage to cook supper without incident and CountryBoy and I had a relaxing evening.  (Everything's always better when he's around!)

I'm not touching the check book until next week.  I refuse.

Maybe it will fix itself.  (One can only hope!)

And, today, I intend to do what I didn't do yesterday.

It's going to be a good day.  Yes, it is!

Coffee's on board, blog post is being written, gluten free English muffin thawing for breakfast with butter and homemade strawberry jam, birds are telling me it's time for their breakfast, yep, a good day!

You can also probably tell what kind of day it was yesterday because I have no photos for you today.

Yea, I know, for shame!

I'll see if I can remedy that this weekend for ya...

I will show you my thrift store finds from the other day.

I went to Goodwill and a Hospice thrift store when I went to town.

Here's what I found...


Napkins (six total), a thick book on digital photography (since I left all mine at home), a cool cake decorating thingy with all kinds of attachments that I have no idea how to use them all, and a bottle opener.

All for around ten bucks!

I've already used the cake decorator thingy to add avocado mocha frosting to some gluten free chocolate cupcakes.  It worked really well.  And the cupcakes were good too!

I hope y'all have a fantastic weekend!

CountryBoy and I are hoping to explore a bit of California on Saturday.  He wants to show me where he works and the surrounding areas.  I'm crossing my fingers for some good photo ops.

Till next time,

I haven't balanced my checkbook in years. My bad!

I am meticulous about the checkbook. It's been balanced to the penny for years and would drive me crazy if I couldn't balance it. Taking a break will help. You'll find it!

Many of my days are like that anymore. I long for a little more routine in my life.

I could not get my checkbook to balance either and it is very frustrating. I usually keep at it until I find it, but after a couple times through, I let it go and just changed my balance to reflect the banks. I know what you mean about things going downhill. Days have a way of doing that sometimes, but at least there are days that go the other way too - so it all balances out in the end.
