Wait, It’s Thursday Already?

It’s been a slow but quick week. Ha! Another week of not knowing what day it is. Sort of. And a busy week where one day of just a few hours of work morphed into full-time hours.

It’s been a somewhat stressful week. A back hurting week. A tired week. A I’m so glad tomorrow is Friday week. I like Fridays.

Of course, this is Thursday (night) and I like posts are for this day. A bit late. Didn’t feel well last night so no post ready to go this morning.

I like feeling healthy.  And a few other things…

From the weekend:

A few more snowmen that caught my eye on my walk in the warm weather before the Polar vortex caused a crazy week:

Since it’s been so cold, let’s start with the this guy catching some rays: 

Most of us I think would rather hang out wherever he’s at, than with Elsa here: 

Scary weather….maybe one of these Jack Skeleton snowmen caused this mix-up? 

Just one more to share….my favorite. 

The rather humble snow-woman pictured above. Let’s take a closer look.  Mrs. Re-Cycle. She wears her outfit well…made out of plastic bags! 

And a few more birds I liked.  This red-bellied woodpecker at the nature center was nice. 

However, not much beats glancing out your living room window and seeing a hawk perched in a tree in your own front yard! 

Only one quick photo through the window before he flew away.

And moving into this week….a few things I liked with fewer (no pictures to share):

  • The local grocery store giving away free hot chocolate Tuesday night for customers braving the cold
  • A totally random and unexpected goodbye hug from a preschool student
  • The book I read this week (Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng). Characters with depth!
  • A week off from taking my son to school and battling the middle school car-line

      The outside pictures were from before the polar surge. Of course, I did have to drive to work in it but once there…certainly, an inside day!

    all that and she crochet’s and recycles too?? Great great snowpeople! I want to come see them all! Love imagination in practice. Good list of likes, especially the little hug…

      It’s an annual January thing! I really enjoy the I like Thursday posts, thank you so much for hosting them.

    Love the red-bellied woodpecker! I spied a HUGE hawk on my drive home from yoga this morning. Yep, he was hunting, focused on the ground… Those snowmen are cute! I’ve pulled up the book you liked on my library’s site, going to read the synopsis and maybe put it on hold!

      It’s always exciting to see the huge hawks isn’t it? I really did enjoy the book but feel compelled to warn you it does contain some issues such as abortion and adoption, pertinent to the story and presented without political opinion but they are there.

    Love the bird photos, the snowmen look strange but amusing – clever and spooky. In the summer here in the countryside, villages dress up scarecrows as various well know characters. I’m guessing this is a similar idea. Have a good weekend, Cathy x

      Thank you! The snowmen are an annual thing, part of a fund-raiser for Habitat for Humanity. Hope you had a great weekend!

    Those snowpeople are funny. Where are they? In different people’s lawns?

    That’s really nice that you got hot chocolate just for showing up to the grocery store. I love it!

    So pick up and drop off is crazy at your schools also? Your kids don’t take the bus?

    Ugh! I’ve been nursing a bad back for three weeks. Yesterday was the first time I’ve felt at about 85%. Today I’m feeling loads better – still a bit pinchy, so I’m sitting with my pal – the heat pad 🙂 It’s been my constant companion for these three weeks – without it I was not moving hardly at all.

    I wrote the book title down; sounds interesting.

    It’s been really cold here in AZ as well – though right now it’s sunny and 55. There was snow on a vehicle next to us on our way to the girls’ school this morning, and when I was driving back up my mountain I saw snow up in the caps – pretty – but a good distance away 😉

      They were on a trail at a local nature center, part of a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity. Yes, crazy car lines are universal, I think. Oldest drives himself. Youngest takes bus home but it comes way too early in the morning for the non-morning kid so I just drive him. Hope your back is back to 100% by now. That one was interesting and I enjoyed it. I read her first book as well but found it rather depressing, still good just not as good and didn’t care for the subject matter. I’ll take sunny & 55 over sunny & 25 😉
