Hi, everyone! I am grateful to be here with you this week. I hope you had a great last few days, that were exactly what you envisioned them to be.
We are much more comfortable this weekend than we were for the last blog hop. After 5 days of no running water in the house, we finally have water again. I feel deeply for those who don’t have access to the basic necessities of life on a constant basis. At least ours was only a temporary problem.
Despite that, we had a great week. Life is what you make of it, and how you respond to It, anyway, don’t you think?
I actually found episodes of ER – yes, that television show from the 90’s, that started all of the other medical dramas that are out there now – on Amazon video. I have been watching a couple, but because they do cost 20 Dollars a season, and there are 15 seasons, I have to keep myself from binging, otherwise, I am going to blow my budget. At the same time, it is so nice to revisit a series, that out of some reason is truly hard to find anywhere else, but is the standard by which I measure all medical shows that have come since. None of them have compared to the original, I must sadly say.
Of course, I also wanted to share with you, my favorite book of the week. This week’s book of the week is Chance For Love by Ann B. Harrison, a romance novel, that has an interesting theme for a contemporary romance novel – the idea of a mail-order-bride. It was better than I expected. My complete review will be available in a few days on my book blog.
Of course, it would not be Friday, without participating in the weekly fill-in sentences hosted by McGuffey Reader
This weeks fill-in sentences are:
- My favourite thing on my daily to-do list is _________________.
- My least favourite thing on my daily to-do list is ________________.
- I could really do without .
- I would love to have more .
Here are my answers:
My favorite thing on my daily to do list is taking my dog Athena for a walk. She walks nicely off leash, just about everywhere, even resists cats, and other small animals unless she is told she can approach them. The crazy thing is, I never taught her that. She just figured out on her own, what I want from her, and is incredibly reliable and trustworthy. But out of some weird reason, when she is on the leash she will pull me all over the place, usually the opposite direction that her doggie sister wants to go. She is a little weird.
My least favorite thing to do on my daily to do list is to clean the bathrooms. It’s not like it’s that bad, but I prefer to clean everything else in the house, then the toilet. But it has to be done.
I could really do without was the last week’s water line break– thankfully it is over, but because we had no water, and I mean none, including toilets, for 5 days – I am just now catching up with all of the laundry, which we obviously also could not do. That was no fun.
I would love to have more opportunities to travel. Growing up, my parents and I went on vacation twice a year – always somewhere away from home. We have traveled to Spain, Italy, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria – and pretty much all over Germany, where I grew up. My dad loved staying in out of the ordinary places, so that meant summers as house guests on a Bavarian farm, or staying at my Great-Aunt’s vineyard in Italy, for example. I miss traveling, just for traveling sake. While I have been all over the US as well – minus California and Hawaii, it was either for a job, for business or to move there, for a few months or years. That is simply not the same.
