What’s Going On Wednesday, Middle Of First Week of 2020

Since I seem to be in a good rhythm with posting, here’s a quick update of how the week looks so far in my world.

Took (overdue) books back to the library yesterday and found this gem while wandering the shelves: 

While maybe not completely relevant, it made this quote pop into my mind:

When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it. (Paulo Coelho)

I also put away the last of the Christmas decorations yesterday. And couldn’t even make this stuff up, just as I finished, two Jehovah’s Witnesses appeared at my door. While I (hopefully) was respectful and polite, I don’t see myself converting to a religion that doesn’t celebrate any holidays.

And true to my word, I looked up the reasons on their website. I remain unconvinced and will stick with my mixed up background beliefs founded in the Baptist/Catholic/Lutheran churches. Thank you very much.

Now that we’ve cleared that air….how about a new candle scent?

I was tired of Christmas scents though I suppose technically hot cocoa and cream could go winter once I took away the twisted peppermint small candle beside it.  However, I pulled this out of the closet and now I really wish I’d have bought two! We all love this one. Not even sure how to describe it…a bit of a clean scent with a faint perfume-y undertone but it doesn’t overwhelm.

In slightly related news, I need to restock my candle stash a bit.

Back to putting away Christmas:

What do you do with poinsettia plants after Christmas? After much debate, I moved ours down to the basement window behind this desk. It’s nice to have a bit of life and color down here. We’ll see how long they survive Really, I’m surprised they made it this long.


Today’s plans involve a trip to Target, Bath & Body Works, and possibly the grocery store. Time to clear out two more kitchen cabinets. A night without any running/picking up of the high school kid. Keeping an eye on the news. A quick whole-house clean up. And of course, laundry.

What’s going on in your world on this Wednesday?

    I had to run to Kroger to get some bananas this morning. I started having leg cramps last night and I think my potassium is low. Had a banana this morning and they are much better. I switched out my scentsy smells for lemon yesterday after burning peppermint for the last few weeks. Like you I was tired of Christmasy smells. LOL Oh and being honest I am sitting here across from 2 huge overflowing baskets of laundry that need folded, but felt like I should check out blogs and maybe blog too first. Priorities, right? LOL Have a good Wednesday!

      Glad the bananas are helping. I’ve heard leg cramps also come from being slightly dehydrated, might make sure you are drinking enough water or drink a bit more. Half my laundry is dumped on the bed upstairs and half is down here. I do need to get that together. Happy Wednesday to you as well!
