Ten Things of Thankful… Quick and Simple

An impromptu get together with friends on Friday night – love hanging with you both.

Two days off to reflect, renew and rest.

Sunny days - yesterday and today

Hera’s Costume (Greek Goddess of Love and Marriage) is done, finished and ready for a school project due on Tuesday.

Blinged-out gold flip flops

Gold Tablecloth (tied in a very modest toga), gold accessories include, a staff or scepter (which I made), a crown, the belt was made by braiding gold strands of yarn, adding a shawl and the blinged-out gold flip flops makes a beautiful Hera Goddess costume - all supplies came together because of  Michael’s, Party City and my closet. We are done and ahead of schedule.

The finished project- I hope I get, I mean Amelia gets a good grade!

A not so Sunday dinner because of obligations, like getting a school project finished. I am making a quick Roast Beef and Cheddar quesadillas. A quick and easy put together, it is a Deli special Combo at my supermarket, I’ll get two orders of Roast Beef and Cheddar Cheese, assemble in fajita size tortillas and bake the quesadillas till the tortillas are toasted, on the side I’ll have French fries, plus a quick green salad – dinner will be done and more importantly accepted by the clan.

My sixth thankful is; reading comprehension books for Amelia, gifts from a friend, huge thanks to you my friend.

Sixty Dollar coupon from Old Navy helped a lot – bought some nice things for me, a birthday gift from the family.

A Sushi birthday dinner….oh I love sushi!

I know I’ve said this before, but it needs another mention, and that is I am so thankful to Pandora. It is a great mood lifter and makes me beam with joy – The music that I listen to is melded with today’s hits as well, and I love it when I play it from the Roku at home.  I love that my children will sing along to songs by The Beatles, Imagine Dragons, Taylor Swift, Abba, Journey, Paul Simon, and will listen to Antonio Vivaldi because their crazy mom proclaims that he must have been the Led Zeppelin of his time.

Last but not least is number ten; dinner is ready – table is set and everyone is ready to eat – and that is where I’m going, downstairs to eat dinner with my family.

Wish you all a week filled with silver linings and finally I leave with this:

 Not one of my favorite president but nonetheless, words to remember.

Let’s not hate….


  1. That dinner of yurs sounds delicious.
    Love sunny weather. Love Old Navy too.
    Have a good week.

  2. I really dig your choice of music! I love music to help with my train of thoughts and quell moods and distract myself from my chronic pain. My husband thinks it's hilarious that I walk around with my headphones in just jamming out to my own beat! I must look ridiculous but it does help. Once I was singing to myself and the mailman came up to the house and he was staring at me -- he had a package that I had to sign for. When he got my attention he said "My little daughter listens to her. That's P!nk right?" I was so embarrassed. HA!
    Anyways...that costume is wonderful! Great job on it!

  3. Great list - love the costume! Looks awesome! And a sushi birthday dinner plus a gift card? That's a good week!

  4. how adorable she is!
    love the father daughter picture too.
    you did GREAT! LOLOL! i think you'll get an A+
    i'm just lovin' your gorgeous Italian life! seriously.
    i say that with total admiration.
    it's small but still big and robust and full flavored in every way.

  5. Too funny that you said 'not one of my favorite presidents' because as I finished reading the quote I thought to myself, "I like that quote but I do not like Richard Nixon" haha!
    That costume is fabulous! Make me one for halloween this year? Just kidding, we don't go out for halloween anyway ;)
    Hope you are having a great week!

  6. What a wonderful costume! You've done really well there :)

    HOORAY for good music and for places to listen to it in a fuss-free manner. Such a mood-booster.

    Glad you've been having a good week :)


Now its your turn, let it all out it feels good .....tell me how you feel! Love to hear from you, I love comments ...they are the best part!
