First I Like Thursday Of 2019

It’s the first Thursday of 2019!  Of course, I had to look at the calendar to make sure. Anybody else find it hard to keep track of the day of the week after the holidays?

No easing into the New Year around here. We jumped right back into our busy schedules this week!

First, we did take time (well, my husband and I) to eat some black-eyed peas for good luck on New Year’s Day.  

I make mine like salsa and dip blue tortilla chips into them. Discussed with my husband why we only make them on New Year’s day when we both like them.

Saw on a morning news program where they said eat black-eyed peas for common sense. I’ve never heard of that one.

Took a bit of a spin on the rest of the traditional New Year’s meal and had my green as salsa verde chicken served over salad.

And it’s a good thing I like to work. Somehow, I went right back to work as the kids went back to school. So much for my planned lazy days watching Netflix. Working is better.

Too tired for Netflix after working a full day. However, I did find time to go to the library! Reading is always better than Netflix. Set my new reading goal on Goodreads, 62 books for the year. Can I do it?

I like my first book of 2019:  

Still need to make a list of 19 I’d like to read this year. Even though I didn’t read all 18 (12.5 of them wasn’t too bad), having a list really helped inspire me to read more and led me to some great works by the same authors.

Short one to start the year as I need to run to Target still for cat food (and other bargains).

    I have been so confused about the days around here! Maybe this weekend it will go back to normal since the kids go back to school on Monday! Yahoo! Seriously, I love having them home, but at the same time I think we are all ready to get back into our routines.

    Good luck on your reading challenge! I have been deliberately turning off the TV and reading in bed before I go to sleep. Hopefully I can make it into a habit as I miss reading.

      Hopefully,next week will get us all back on track. I had no trouble remembering it was Friday at work yesterday 😉 And I definitely know it’s Saturday morning. LOL! I’ve been trying to read before bed as well. I bet you’ll get right back into the habit of reading 🙂

      Oh, I bet that would be good to just put them on salad. My book is very interesting, about a British man trying to reach the South pole on ski’s.
