Scorpion !!!! 

So…I found a scorpion in my house today.  This is the second one in less than a week. I am in panic mode over here. I know that the desert is filled with creepy crawlies. But- I hate all things that creep and crawl! Ugh. 

Luckily the two scorpions that I’ve found were both dead.  That means that something killed them and I’m thinking it was one of our kitties. Scorpions are venomous and I hope they are ok. If I see either of them acting oddly I will call the vet right away. 

My heroic kitties 😻



Look at that thing!!!! It gives me shivers just thinking about it. Ewwwwwwwww

I guess that’s all for today. I just wanted to share this unfortunate event. 😱

Memorial Day 2017

Hi guys!  What is everyone doing this Memorial Day weekend?  

Saturday I spent my morning cleaning and running errands.  And I had a friend come over for lunch. It was so nice catching up with her!! She even brought me a housewarming gift. She is so sweet. We used to work together, so we went from seeing each other everyday and this is the first time I’ve seen her in months.  For lunch I made tiny meatball subs. It’s a recipe Hubby shared with me from Facebook. I think it’s one of those Tasty videos. I didn’t take any pictures- I am terrible about that. I really have to remember to take more pictures. Anyway- they were delicious!! 

My housewarming gift- 

Saturday night, Hubby and I went on a date!! We don’t do that often enough, but it was so nice. He bought tickets at The Roadhouse Theater. It’s a movie theater here in Tucson, they have reclining love seats and you can order dinner and drinks while you watch the movie. We went to a late showing of Pirates of the Carribean. (We LOVE those movies!!)  We ordered some of their gourmet popcorn and beer.  

Date night! 


Sunday is always family day. We had a cookout with burgers and hotdogs, potato salad, baked beans, strawberry pretzel salad and chocolate cake for dessert. (Again- no pictures)  It was nice to hang out and eat yummy food. 

Today, we are relaxing. Hanging out at home, and remembering those who gave everything for our freedom. ❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸

I hope everyone had a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend! 

My Morning Routine

I’ve always been fascinated by people who schedule their daily lives. Why follow a schedule when you’re at home?  Isn’t the point of being at home to relax, be leisurely and do what you want?  Why would anyone want to make a set time for housework? 

And then one day I realized- I was following a routine without ever intending it. It just makes life easier. I make sure my daily chores and housework are done before any fun.  Don’t get me wrong, my entire day is not scheduled.  But it’s definitely helpful to get certain things done in the morning, before starting my day. And certain things done in the evening, before going to bed.

  • 4:45-5am – wake up, pack hubbys lunch, pour our coffee, sit down to watch the news, kiss hubby good bye
  • 5:30- shower & get dressed
  • 5:45/6-more coffee, check emails & social media, read Bible
  • 6:15/6:30 wake up youngest for school, start laundry, unload dishwasher, make breakfast, pack lunches
  • 7- youngest daughter out the door for the bus, wake up older daughter for school, flip laundry
  • 7:15- fix my hair, make up, wipe down bathrooms, start more laundry, walk the dog, start on daily chores

I would love to hear about your daily routines. Morning, nightly, whole day- anything really.
